    Andrew,

    Since you proposed the idea, you should tell us what you've been buying lately!

    Coincidentally, one of my recently purchases was a lovely pair of Stefano Branchini shoes, purchase from a certain eBay seller called "worldclassconsignment". Very nice indeed.

    Otherwise, I hope to soon pick up one or two Corneliani suits from Sierra Trading Post, particularly if I can find a discount voucher for STP floating around. I'll have to post picks when I purchase them.



    Thanks for the plug Journeyman. Here is a pic of your shoes for the thread:

    As for purchases, I've scored some nice stuff lately and will be contributing as soon as I take some pics.

    I kind of like the cat tie, it's unique, but in a good way.

    12 x Herringbone shirts for work (all French-cuff), the collars vary from Italian spread to English spread.
    5 x 8cm Herringbone ties

    These will be treated as part of my travelling professional wardrobe for the next 8 months as I know how bad hotel laundry can be..

    I was recently in New York City and picked up a pair of shoes I've wanted for some time. These are from the Belgian Shoe Store. They'll be good for a variety of informal occasions. This weekend they made their west coast debut at a dinner party.

    I'm aware of the supposed connection between these shoes and art dealers. Were I inclined, I guess I'm now ready to become an art dealer.
