    So, if we throw water on you will you melt and go away?

    I've yet to find any shoe that is exactly like a G&G. Tough to capture in photo, this particular last. How are they for you so far?

    The combo rocks!



    Nobody does it better. The socks are lovely and they are the PERFECT choice to bring trou and shoe together.



    Today I met again with an intriquing potential client. A young man, half my age, with an intriquing business model, stellar personal presence, perhaps some very interesting opportunities to appear in the media and a rockin' night club sort of project on the horizion. What does one wear for such an unsual occasion? I choose this:

    Shoes - Septieme Larguer
    Socks - Pantherella
    Trou - Panta

    I've recently polished these shoes with two coats of bright turquoise cream polish - and it is starting to produce a very interesting result.

    (yes - I did pump up the color in the photo a smidge)

    stitches, I agree with PB. Those trou are so classic an refined I would play them straight so as not to take away from them. I might do a solide blue of a "slightly" lighter shade.

    Agreed, you might also consider a small scale houndstooth or birdseye as well.

    I like the color change. When you say "pump up the color" (sorry no photog here) do you mean you artifically added some more after the shot?
