    @Rudals I think the Hallam is right for you from those two. That said the West' is superb but as others have said a little too stand out. I can empathise with that from personal experience. I think it's an important colour to have though, think navy SC and grey troos....

    I'd urge you to look at Belgrave and Courtenay (both HG). Or why not go for the Edgware? Same colour but just provides a different look, different detail. Same last as you're used to. Just a thought friend.

    Thank you Cleav.
    I always thought a navy blue suit with a pair of browns in the shade that is similar to those of Westbourne looked very nice. It looked like they knew how to dress. But the shoes just stood out a lot.

    For the shoes that you have a pic for, I have not acquired a taste for something with embroidery.

    I'm ordering another MTM suit from Kent Wang and thought I would ask here for recommendations on changes to make for the second suit. For purposes of evaluating length, the side profile picture is the most accurate as to length. I have a few modifications in mind, but am curious if anyone else here has additional thoughts.








    Edit: Wow, did not realize how dark these turned out, despite using the new camera and natural light. Apologies, will retake pictures tomorrow.

    The Westbournes he likes are brogued. I assume he does not care for medallions on the toe.

    Pleasure Doodals, I think you may need to look a little closer as it is a different aesthetic that gives you more flexibility. You takes your choice man of course just saying.

    I'd also take a look at Murls post on Rock your Socks thread, if only for the 'embroidery'! :facepalm:

    Advertising "I'm pretty sure I grabbed the last one..." does sound like something of a challenge to all-comers - the combination of crowing, scarcity, and doubt might make it irresistible for someone to check if there is indeed a last one. But it wasn't me - pity!

    I guess you're right, but to my defense Patrizio said it was off limits for others. I guess I'll contact my bank and have a Rudals-like conversation with them.

    I've got this Cappelli incoming (and 4 others). I wanted a warmer brown tie.
