  • What the Sophisticated ZORA Driver Will Wear and Drink


    ZORA Men,
    Here is a selection of Men's Suit Tailors from Ready to Wear or Off The Rack, Made to Measure, and finally Bespoke (Machine sewn up to Hand sewn). Of course a gentleman ZORA driver of your stature and sophistication should have a "go to list" of bespoke suit tailors to choose from. I've organized them by country to assist in selection of styles and fabric design originating from that country. I've also included the top four perfumeries in the world for your personalized one of a kind essence from the center of the perfume world "Grasse, France". Your very own ZORA essence will drive your lady WILD with passion !!!!! You now have the Shoe guide as well to be the most dapper ZORA man in world!! Finally, no dapper ZORA man should be without a list of wine movies to sharpen up his wine tasting skills.

    ZORA Men
    Since you are the consummate dapper shoe aficionado, I have assembled the Ultimate Shoe Guide for you to refer to on your shopping trips here and abroad. I've researched these shoe companies and separated by country of origin, and by standards of quality ranging from bench made, made to order, and finally to the bespoke process. England by far has the largest quantity of custom shoe companies ranging from larger production bench made standards to tiny bespoke artisan cobblers that do incredible workmanship and design. Italy is next in line followed by France, USA, and Spain. These combined countries seem to be the bulk of the custom market. This list will be very helpful at least from a quality standard perspective. Design capabilities is a whole other issue. Hope this helps. I know I will use it when I buy my ZORA.

    Oh my Skank, you have outdone yourself. Thank you. I have not even heard of 99% of those brands. I am guessing these are from your Ferrari driving days.

    I think you “funing us.”

        Well, I hope that is a suggestion, and not a requirement.. I don't even plan on being dressed in a suit, or fancy duds for my funeral. My daughters recently bought me a shirt that says " I put the FUN in Funeral ". I'm a recovering alcoholic, so I can't drink the suggested wines. I have lost, part of one foot, and wear a special shoe, so the shoe list doesn't help. And I prefer movies like " The Traveling Executioner ". Bottom line is, MAYBE, I shouldn't be a "Zora snub", quit waiting and just go but a Kia. Now, I'm torn on what to do.
        Regards Brian

          Think Skank is fancifully re-living his past Ferrari days. We will need Skank a picture of you when you first get into your ME. Will you be in blue jeans or your above described clothes?

          IHowever, like you Brain, know I will be “casual,” for once I retired, the ties and suits went away. I have only worn a tie and a nice sports jacket three times in the last 14 years since I first-time retired:

          * Oldest daughter’s wedding;
          * Youngest daughter’s wedding; and,
          * For a very special Corvette event.

          Specifically to attend the 1.13.13 private C7 reveal, GM literally required all of us going to wear dress slacks, a sports jacket, a tie and a dress shirt. That was literally the last time for me.

          However, I can be bought, for if I were to get an invite to the private ME’s reveal (assuming that there would be one), I would bring out that same sports jacket (worn once), and the rest of that regalia. LOL.

            I hope you all noticed that I have USA custom suit and shoe makers for the Made In America only crowd. I have done the custom essence tour at Galimard in France. Therefore we could develop our very own ZORA cologne for men and ZORA perfume for the ladies. Wait until Mary Barra, Mark Reuss, Tadge Juechter and company get a hold of this! Ha Ha. Harlan Charles would have fun with this too!

              Look how fanciful Tadge and Harlan are at this past April’s BASH.

                John, oh I've seen Tadge dressed up in a suit before. But that's interesting that you were required to dress up for the C7 Private reveal. I think a pair of Perry Ercolino bespoke shoes (He has made shoes for US Presidents before) and a Michael Andrews Suit would do you just fine! Of course we would have to get you some of that ZORA cologne.

                    Shorts and a Hawaiian shirt are my idea of style. I’m with John in that I haven’t worn a suit or sports coat in ages.
                    There is a madness to my method!

                      Blue jeans and polo shirts for me. I will feel good in them in my mid engine Corvette. Clean ones of course.

                        Please, just don’t wear your favorite T shirt that has been washed a hundred times. I see this all the time, and wonder why they think it’s ok.

                          I was disappointed that there's been no mention so far of Grey Poupon... What is the well-dressed man to garnish his meal with?

                          I went for a rare top-up C7 ride today (only 50F), working to get my fuel below 1/4 tank before storage next weekend.

                          I wore what I normally do... a white cotton t-shirt and cargo pants.

                            I just got my tank down to that recommended amount too. Thanks for the good reminder Mobius for all who are planning to store their C7’s the entire winter.
