    Nice fit Roycru, but tell me about the art. I collect a lot of similar stuff.
    Not that I condone Crocs, but in the limited settings they might be acceptable (on a boat, or the beach) when would wearing them with socks ever make sense? There was this dude we used to call "Crocs with socks" for that very reason.

    I am of the belief that lace up shoes deserve socks. Period.
    Your look(the top part) was a nice Summery look. My feeling is that you tried to bring that Summery feel to the bottom by wearing lace-ups with no socks.

    I am not saying that I am for no socks ever. But I only like them with loafer style shoes. NEVER with lace-ups. Looks silly to me and seems that the wearer is trying too hard. Just because the weather is nice, doesn't mean that not wearing socks emphasizes/highlights a "Summery" look. My $.02.

    With your outfit, I would have worn brown-ish socks.

    It might be a freudian slip, or it might not.
    Anyway, good to see that you read the text and not just look at the pictures. [​IMG]

    It's my friend's breakfast room. Those things are on all four walls. My friend gets them in foreign countries.

    @The_Foxx Is that bespoke? I've heard good things about Attolini, but didn't know where they were available (RTW, or only bespoke in Europe, etc)

    Oh how I wish Mr. Fox would snap some good quality pictures. It is a shame that we can't see the pix in any better quality when he dresses so darn well.

    @The_Foxx I'll join the gentlemen above in praising your suit. Looks a lot better on you than the Sartorio suits you usually wear, which always seem a bit too tight around the shoulders and upper arms.
    And yes, post better pics please :)

    Thanks for the compliments guys-- it is a more generous fit than my sartorios (which I prefer), and unfortunately my only Cesare Attolini suit, from the Madison Ave store (rtw not bespoke)

    @venividivicibj Attolini also does MTM, through their authorised dealers.

    Who makes Attolini? I think I read on the French thread it was made by someone else well known?

    Sartorio is Kiton right?

    Attolini is made by..... Attolini [​IMG] Then there's Stile Latino, which is made by Attolini and is to them what Sartorio is to Kiton.
    Personally, I'd rate Attolini among the very best RTW there is.

    Edit: found a pic of the old man himself:

    +1, never owned any Attolini, but base on my try on experience I definitely like them a lot, and for nearly the same money (if I have) I would definitely prefer Attolini over Kiton
