    Seeing as we are talking about shoes, here's another new pair that arrived yesterday afternoon that I haven't included in the original photos:

    They are Bontoni.

    Bespoke-Engljand has a 35% off discount on all shoes right now incidentally.

    I really want to buy a pair of Edward Green or Gaziano & Girling from Skoak, but I gotta discipline myself: job first, splurge second.

    Jfrat, your koppage level is through the roof. Did you just win lottery? (Rhetorical, it`s your business and I'm just jealous)

    Haha no - it is a personality disorder I think - when I get interested in something I become very obsessed with perfecting my knowledge of that thing. With menswear it means buying stuff to learn :)

    You should see my bathroom cupboards after my foray into gentlemen's grooming products and my house is full of taxidermy from my interest in dead animals.

    Don't get suddenly interested in vicuna, whatever you do, or drugs, I guess.

    I already bought a vicuna tie - that has quelled my desire (for now!)

    Definitely keeping away from drugs - and I don't drink alcohol now due to my inability to stop at one.

    Trying to resist the urge on this. Should I get it? I need new light weight summer shirts. IIRC, the EP fit is good in the body, but the collar is a bit tight and the sleeves/shoulders a tad long. Would get the cutaway collar as I have too many button-downs. Thanks!

    **Indigo Gingham Lawn (GDK6-400): A perfect, classic summer shirt. This lawn fabric is an extremely lightweight cotton. The mid-scale gingham is an easy pattern to match to anything, but the fabric overall is indigo-dyed, giving it a light blue ground against a navy check, and taking it out of the usual boring white-blue gingham world.

    If the fit isn't right, resist. Why buy something your not entirely happy with?

    It even beats Stitchie back in his prime a few years ago.

    Doing my best impersonation of a Yoox model as I try on this Cantarelli jacket. Beyond the fact that I clearly need a long, I'm wondering if I've found a new maker that fits me as I suspect the button point on a long will go down a half inch or so.

    It's Brad Wesley from an American cult-classic movie Road House. The character had an extensive taxidermy collection himself.

    6'2", so too tall for most R's and most L's are fairly long on me. That's why I'm really loving the recent trend of shorter jackets as the long's fit me much better now.

    Tall man. A long would be much better.

    Even the Cantarelli L are too short for my taste. It's hard to tell with that upward angle, but I think another inch or so in the long should be alright for you.
