Corthay: RTW Goodyear welted shoes made in France beginning at EU780. They have a collection of shoes at the shop which you can have colored any way you like. This took 4 days to have done. Cifonelli: suits here are slim-fitting, beautifully constructed, ranging from very traditional to slanted pockets and ticket pockets. Shoulders are soft but with a little peak at the drop before the shoulder. RTW about EU1795/ Aubercy: overpriced, not that interesting once you get up close John Lobb: impeccable. Found some black boots here that fit unbelieveably well. JM Weston: yucky-looking, and that's being generous. The leather leaves much to be desired, and they were, for the most part, uncomfortable. Old England: I guess, short of Lobb, I don't like English styles. Lots of choices, but in a way they begin to look the same. Sorry. Time for dinner. Hope you boys in the States are well.
