    Cucinelli quilted sport coat.

    - I hope for you we are not the same size.. If we are I HATE YOU!

    A few things from earlier in the month. These socks rule. Thanks, chorse!
    - SWEET, I will eventually press the "check out" button!

    I doubt it, PG. I'm taller and fatter.

    Pretty colors in that, Mr. Moo.

    Thanks, I thought so too. I'm not much for lavish designs and animals/flowers/trees on my ties, but I had to have it because of my fondness for cows.

    All great, but these are definitely my favourite. Where did you get them from, just out of interest?


    Nothing extravagant, but I picked up a sand-coloured cotton sleeveless v-neck at Zara today. They also had a lovely linen green/white/aquamarine scarf that I was sorely tempted by, for use in spring/summer. Maybe next time I'll get it.

    Over the weekend I picked up a Lacoste black v-neck sweater 70% off. Simple, 100% cotton, i wish they had size 3 in wool or cashmere or hybrid.

    Just walked in:
    Tetbury on 348 last on Dainite sole

    Lowndes on 348 last

    Before you start asking..

    Difference between 337 & 348 last
    I did not size down as I have narrow feet (my parents would not let me wear flip flops (thongs) or run around bare foot as a child) & found the 337 not as snug as I'd like.

    Difference between Handgrades & benchgrades
    The HG are definitely better made/finished, they have full leather sock liner, the leather is nice as well as the stitching. Even the little things like the shoe bags are nicer wit the HG, such as real brass toggles (even though they bug me) instead of plastic..

    PG inspired me to have a go...my photography really sucks, though!

    Lowndes in suede in a D fitting, Tetbury in regular suede. Both already used quite heavily.

    Appears to be a shoe-day...

    Wednesday, shoe shopping day:
    Münchener Schuhwerkstätten plain derby in dark brown french calf on modified "XX" last. To be finished by the end of march.

    I was also considering VASS U last derbies but since I can't try them on where I live (and given my narrow feet) I figured it was too much of a risk. [​IMG]

    Oh dear god.

    I might need to get the Tetbury in both nubuck and suede.
