How to Drink Grower Champagne

The Prince of Wales shops… here? In a ramshackle building some 45 minutes from B.A., Casa Fagliano is perhaps the world's most important polo-boot maker. Ask padre Rodolfo, who runs the family business with sons Eduardo and Hector, to pull out Charles's last. The Faglianos do a few other swell things besides $2,000 bespoke boots—like beautiful hand-stitched loafers. But these are more of a side business, so you never know whether they'll have your size. It's worth the trip anyway. $ At 1449 Tambo Nuevo, Hurlingham; 54-11/4665-0128.
