They certainly don't make them in sizes for small faces. . but to be honest , even though l know dress footwear is expensive in the Republic of the United States of America , l probably wouldnae buy them at that money. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .

They are Italian made,though. You can buy cheap footwear here like anywhere I guess, but the difference is obvious immediately. I have shoes made in China, they're ok for the money but the quality is  nothing to brag about...plus most of the less expensive shoes hurt like hell to break in (if they ever do).

Birthday present to myself, the open collar detail gives it the edge, IMO.



A&F seem back to form with the new polos, the most striking is of course the stripes one but the other knitted numbers look quite fine, especially the collars, and they won't break the bank (mine has been 50 € after applying a 15 % code). A pity the short sleeves' knits sport 2 buttons instead of the usual 3:

Happy Birthday, GS!
(And collars still to small for my liking... ;)  )

Somewhat off topic but ... garage shelving to stash all my shoes.
As I explained in the blog post, sick of dedicated shoe racks not being wide enough to accommodate shoes in pairs so I found the perfect solution:



Full details on the blog.

Great idea Rod! I think I may take your idea and use it for my shoes and handbags...  ;D

Regarding collars, you're belong to the DNA school, I see  ;D Those A&F are just perfect for my tiny frame, though  8)

I'm more partial to the ArtGallery size collars on polos (Nothing against Claudio, DNA's shirts, trousers, and jackets are my favorites)...

You know GS, it's all about the "details". Those smaller collars being sold by every maker now are too "mainstream" looking for me. ;)

Mike, this IS a small, deal-breaker collar for me, I don't think the A&Fs can be thrown into that category:
