    The SHE is saying she wants to clean the bling bling. Can I just take my electric toothbrush and make it sparkle again?

    Yes!

    Well, fit is very nice, but a tad snug. Thankfully its totally unlined and there is room to take out by both side seams and the back seam, so it should be a cake walk for my tailor to make it perfect. YAY!!!


    Um, yes. But dont use toothpaste. Just warm water lightly soapy. Also, MAKE SURE THE DRAIN IS SEALED!!!!!! Remind me next week to send you some jewelry cleaner.

    Patina is quite nice there. I like the toe shape. @Murlsquirl , you should strongly consider these.

    I tried this one on last night at Haberdash in Chicago. Too tight in my usual 42 and def not long enough, wasn't an "L", but damn the raw silk green herringbone was amazing! They're getting Fall shipments in 1-2 weeks, can't wait!!

    Btw it's still available for anybody in Chicago-land area who wears a 42 regular.

    I want to get something in CXL badly. I love the Patina on them after awhile and supposedly they hold up like a tank.

    6, those are in the Forest too? They look narrower.

    Sozzi are the only people that make them, so any you see are from the same place. Chocolate and navy are still full price but still much cheaper than VM price once you do the conversions.

    ^^ Yep. Also Forest. Actually the soles might be the leather/Dainite combo that Carmina does, which I can't remember the name of at the moment.

    Mr. Six: I was under the impression that CXL did not age well and tended to take on a wrinkled look. Yours look great! How old are they and what do you do to treat them?

    That was my impression as well...I've seen some nasty pictures. Still a little reluctant to try it out
