This, with one small tweak.To start with dont use shoe trees but newspaper. Stuff it into the boots tightly and replace it every few hours. You will notice how quickly it absorbs the moisture from the shoes. Wooden trees hill hold on to the moisture if the boots are drenched thus keeping the boots damp. Once the boots are moderately dry then use the trees. Dry somewhere away from a heat source where there is good air circulation. Since they have leather soles I would lay...
Hm, cool thread.
I hope you aren't implying that I am intolerant of anything other than classic proportions?I am perfectly happy with members' interpretations of classic pieces which often suit today's image better than the classic original. Its just that the modern interpretation isn't classic. Fashionable iGentry is fine but should be seen separate from classic menswear. It isn't classic menswear. That was my original point. I understand the problem with naming the topic...
Timeless does not exist. Any fit older than a century or so would look like a costume from a film set or something. Some stuff just has a longer expiry date than other stuff. The more 'stylish' or 'fashionable' a fit is the shorter its lifespan. The concept that classic menswear is subject to change had previously occurred to me.

Can't imagine the...
Quick phone frontcam pic.
I see where you are coming from. This is my first English-made suit and I think I would agree that it would not fit in anywhere outside of the UK. I do like the cloth and fit though; this is an un-altered rtw experiment. Depending on how the suit holds up I may order mtm which would be with 'normal' pockets. In general the suit feels more sturdy than any suit I have ever had.
