    Huge response! Thanks.
    SuSu is the only place that carries them, but not in grey :/
    I've tried some other places such as Club Monaco and J. Crew and the shorts are all cargo and casual.

    I do plan to wear them with linen structured jackets and no socks, just to (partially) alleve your concerns!

    A few Isaia sports coats marked down to 999 at the HR Heartland outlet.

    Special thanks to @jokb for a very pleasant experience ordering my first pair of Vass - this is really a great resource to use here for very awesome shoes! I'm now ready for the upcoming winter, which after last year's mild one is probably going to be a real messy affair.....

    X-post from the Vass thread:

    Agreed. One of the best looking boots I've ever seen.

    Thanks gents - if you are considering Vass or a high-end shoe - I think having Jok as an option here is an awesome resource.

    I got mine at costco. It works well for shoes but it's ok at best for boots. It's metal, cheap, and sturdy plus they stack well.

    I got six of those Costco ones to put in an alcove at my old place. Other stores (eg Target) were selling the same racks for more money. For boots you're basically limited to the topmost shelf in a stack.

    I installed 3 of the Grundtal racks from Ikea on the weekend.

    Not my home but you get the idea:

    Back in Europe with brick walls it was much easier, but here I try to minimize things that I need to hang on the drywall. Studs and all that jazz...

    Funny, I would say the exact opposite. For a shoe rack I am building one for our front hallway. Will be off the floor, probably out of pine and made to fit into a specific space. Kind of like how you see the store fixtures where the boxes of G&G fit in perfectly. I'll post pics when its done, but its not a priority so maybe near Xmas lol.

    Stopped into Loding at FCP 'cuz I received a useful email informing me they now stock EEE (or simply L for large, as they stamp it). Zero of their narrow stock had fit me up to now.

    Pretty good. Prolly pass as I already own a brown semibrogue.

    This was one of four bestsellers available wide now. Black captoe, tan, this and some other. Sadly the nice GY loafer that looks like the JW Weston 180 (more than other makes do, anyway) hasn't and probably won't be manufactured wide : (

    Loding = French full-grain leather/Portuguese labor + almost all GY. If some dandy doesn't believe that just hold a front kick, lol:

    Every single model is $330 i.e. there is never a sale. So $372.90 to walk out the store. Make browsing pretty simple.

    Basically the AE of France.

    They're dtown, dav & avenue and now Sherway.

    Cheers
