    ^^^ The only way that you're getting those is if you mortgage your first-born, Spoo-meister, and somehow I can't see Mme. Spoo going along with that action . . .

    Why am I such a joykill? Because I'm really good at it! [​IMG]

    Stingray? Feh! Dare I say it - people will think that you took style pointers from kitonbrioni!

    I just looked at them in the other thread where such shoes are displayed - although they do not have the marquise-diamond shape of white on them (which is really vulgar, IMHO), they are still pretty far out there, style-wise. But, still, we all have our small tastes for the outrageous.

    Those are Gaziano & Girling Deco Range. They sell them at Bespoke England, and the Armoury. Links are both at the top of the page.

    Oy, tried on a pair of Zegna XXX double monks yesterday... perfect damn fit. OK price too (about half MSRP) but I don't really need them nor have the spare cash. Still I have a deal about to close and I may have to buy them for myself as a treat if they are still available then.

    To go with your boot trees?

    These boots are awesome, Fritzl - would you wear something like these?

    Genuine tortoise shell frames from Osawa Bekko, in Tokyo. I'd put transition lenses into them.
