    These are currently on sale in the JM Weston stores in HK, around 30% off. The angel on my shoulder is taking a beating from the devil, but I think I will hold out, just can't see myself wearing them.

    They stock the same model, on sale, at the JM Weston boutique in New York.

    So that is the Corbin we all bought for $325. I imagine someone at polo.com is still cleaning the toilets over that.

    I own a bit dressier Tramezzas in similiar shade of brown. Finding a matching belt for them has been and continues to be a monumental pain in the arse [​IMG]

    I like those suede Sutors acidicboy, nice find. Did they run true to size?

    Thanks, Whnay. They actually are a bit roomy, which is quite surprising given that they look very narrow, and I have wide feet. But they don't slip off when I wear them, so it's all good. [​IMG]

    I'm of the opinion that it looks better if things don't match perfectly.

    Rudolf Scheer & Söhne, K und K Hof, Wien:

    K. und K. Hof stands for Kaiser und König Hoflieferant or Imperial (Austrian Empire) and Royal (Kingdom of Hungary) Purveyor and with the Emperor coat of arms, it’s equivalent to UK’s Royal Warrant of Appointments. Even though the Austro-Hungarian Empire had ceased to exist for more than 90 years, many firms still hold on to the K und K Hof title. Other K und K Hof firms include Knize, E Braun & Co., Herend, Demel and Sacher.

    Hey Christofuh, are they the Gherardo chocolate brown tramezzas? How do they run size wise? I usually take a 12 D, and I see a pair of 12 B up on ebay.

    Thanks!

    On that last you can substitute 12D for 11.5EE and not expect to have fit issues. Going from 12D width to 12B is likely to feel tight as hell.

    LLOYDs remind me of zee German Aldens albeit with a pinch of European refinement and sleekness. Not sure what to think of their mid $500s price though [​IMG]

    It's more a German AE. Sorry, that I can't tell you about their 1888 Line. The standard line lost in their quality over the last decade.[​IMG]
