My Red Shoes


Black and brown shoes inhabited my shoe racks. Something new had to happen. Red shoes were the choice. I sent Italian leather to my shoemaker in Warsaw, and, as always, he made me a pair well-fitting of shoes, which were a very red pair of shoes too.


I expected that though, and I had a plan: black shoe wax. I new it would change the colour significantly but I wasn’t exactly sure of the result. Here it is, a much more subtle colour, although you still have that dandy touch, which red tends to produce.

The Two Button DB


I intent to modify features, when visiting the tailor but I always end up at the usual conservative ones: double-vented, flap pockets, six buttons on a double breasted.

Luckily, others don’t hold back. The young men above, tailors from Neaples, I believe, are donning a db with wide lapels, patch pockets, jetted ticket pocket, and minimalistic two buttons on the front.
