    A beautiful collection Matt! I'm feeling the need to post another installment of my own soon.[​IMG]

    I think this rug thing is cathcing on. I see a coffee table book of exquisite shoes presented on rugs being ready for the holiday gift giving season.

    What size are you? Just checking so I can see if I need to ask to be put in your will.

    Matt, these four are all great choices! I've also got the Philip II. However, my absolute favorite out of the four is the suede Lattanzi. What a beautiful leather and what a great shoe altogether! WOW! [​IMG]

    I also love the suede Lattanzi.

    And way to go with all you conservative Lattanzi finds! I'm having one of those "so they DO exist!" revelations.

    If you go to the Brioni boutiques in NY (especially the small one) you see that they buy Lattanzi in a very conservative way. The prices are a touch lower as well. Sometimes, some of the shoes are even marked lower than they should be.

    Matt, these are gorgeous. The suede cap looks incredibly soft.

    Is that monkstrap the shoe you sent to Sr. Lattanzi when it got scuffed?

    No, that was an oxford.
