Regarding size, I do agree with some of the previously mentioned ideas that dress watches should be under 38 mm. I have owned many watches in the past years, from mass produced watches to luxury watches, from obscure brands to vintage watches. I really love them. But I have to say that my taste has deeply evolved from when I started collecting watches. My first "real" watches were big, very big. 42 mm for "dress" watches big. I still remember the first time I bought a...
Gentlemen, I've reading thoroughly this thread and I still can't make any sense of Carmina's sizing. Might be that it's Friday Anyway, my only Carmina's are a Rain last in UK 7. BUT, all the other shoes I have are a UK 6.5 (C&J, Alden, Yanko, Meermin, Loake, Herring, etc.). And all of them fit perfectly. I can't really tell any difference in how they feel, including Carmina's. Question is, if I get a Carmina in Forest last, should I go UK 7 as in the Rain I own, or...
Gentlemen, I present to you my latest addition. Dark brown cap toe derby in last 962 with full rubber sole. MTO via @Skolyx .
Thanks for your reply The ceremony will be at the Asia House and then they have rented a place to arrange the event. Don't remember right now what's the restaurant's name... But apart from the restaurant area, they also have their own pub in the same building where the party will continue. That gives me the idea that it is not a fancy old fashioned stiff place, but I have no clue TBH.Well, and the couple is quite "modern", if this makes sense. Think some sort of London...
Hi gents, Tomorrow I will be attending a wedding in London and I need some advice from Brit igents. I planned to go with a full suit, black cap toe oxfords, etc. But talking to the bride she told me that the dress code will be "smart casual". Therefore I changed the suit for a pair of nice Loro Piana pants in medium gray and combine it with a sports coat. Orange tie and brown shoes. And here is where I am doubting what is appropriate for such event in the UK. I thought...
Of course, because you replied to a post from 2013.
Why would you even recommend staying with Meermin over trying Yanko if you have never tried and compared both IRL?Yanko are IMO way better than Meermin in pretty much every point possible. And I can tell because I have had and worn several models of both brands.
Thanks!Actually, I do love Dainite soles. I was skeptical the first time I bought a pair of shoes with this type of sole a few years ago. But they have grown into me to the point that now pretty much every new shoe I buy comes with Dainite soles, even if that means I have to pay extra (i.e. have to order an MTO instead of buying stocked shoes). Only my black plain cap toe oxfords have leather sole.TBH this comes out of convenience. Where I live it rains on average 2 out of...
Yesterday I received my new Loake Pimlico. They are going to substitute my now retired Herring Gosforth II, which if I am not mistaken are made by Loake (Kempton). I have to properly try them on the field, but so far I like the Pimlico best.
Check also Herring's Charles II. They are made by Alfred Sargent on their 109 last. Never seen them live, though. My only experience is what I have read about them, but apparently the construction is outstanding and the difference in price compared to AS's Armfield is explained by them changing some small details. So they look like a good alternative.
