Thanks, mans! Very nice of you both. And thanks for the thumbs, too, denizens of the thread. YRR, the square is more of a cream and green (which sounds dirty), and although that's certainly still matchy, I hoped it would subdue it a smidge. The shoes are a pre-StyFo purchase that managed to survive the great purge. The company is Paolo Shoes, designed here in San Francisco and made in Italy. The shoe I have appears to be this one: http://www.paoloshoes.com/mens-shoes/john-dip-dyed-black-nappa-leather-oxfords - though mine are burgundy as you said. Most of what they make is way over the top as you'll see if you browse through the site.
