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

    Hawkbill turtle is endangered. I'm afraid I can't get behind that.

    To go with your boot trees?

    trees for one thousand pound sterling. probably not in this life...

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

    definitely, imo they are less fancy than the deco range or this(1&2).

    check the gallery. you'll not be disappointed.

    if, i'm not mistaken. these are part of his regular offers/collection.

    My local menswear shop has their Belvest suits marked down. They said the high-end stuff isn't moving well. They have a solid medium gray Belvest suit originally marked $3,500 for $995 - and it is my size and fits like a glove. But I can't remember the last time I wore a suit. So I can't justify a thousand for this suit. But it sure is nice and I sure want it. Chris
    Where and what is your local menswear shop?. In the past two months I picked up a cashmere Belvest jacket and a suit at great prices. I didn't really need either, especially the suit, but the particular model works very well for me. Do know what model(s) your shop is selling? Thanks.

    +1 I don't need boots but I'd love to convert half my shoe collection to them. Something is just so bold yet is so under the radar in my city that I would smile every day.
