    The most recent issue of GQ featured several wingtip styles, including a black pebble-grain by Thom Browne. After unsuccessful telephone calls to NM in San Francisco and Bergdorf Goodman (where, according to GQ, the shoes could be found), I found them at the Thome Browne store on Hudson Street in N.Y.C. If anyone here saw them and is interested, the store has them in black and brown pebble. The telephone number there is (212) 633-1197.

    Now even I don't know what that stands for.

    Actually you could buy everything there and not look ridiculous wearing it.

    Are the Thom Browne shoes the exact same as the Black Fleece ones? Made by Alden?

    No. The Thom shoes have a little cloth pull tab at the heel and a metal toe plate. the Trickers don't.

    No, Tricker's makes Thom Browne's shoes.

    What "extras" does the Thom Browne wingtips have over the Black Fleece, to justify the $400 price difference?
