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.
That is sadly my experience. So yeah, unless price is the only driving force, it is totally worth to spend a little bit more on a safer bet.
Gentlemen, These arrived today
After reading JezeC's review, I have decided to also share my personal experience with Meermin. First of all, I have to say that I really wanted to like this brand. Their customer service is very good and it is always something to appreciate that a company is trying to bring decently constructed shoes at a low price point, so people that otherwise would not buy "good shoes" can actually afford them and pull the trigger. But sadly my personal experience has not been good. I...
Hi gentlemen, Which is Yanko's most similar last to Carmina's Rain?
