I am thinking about getting a country boot for weekend walks - colour Almond Country Calf and with a Dainite sole. However, I am torn between the G&G Thorpe and the EG Nevis. I have a few EG's already and I am very happy with the quality and fit. I have no experience with G&G shoes other than trying them on in stores (they seem to fit me just as well as EG), and have never seen the Thorpe IRL, but from pictures the Thorpe looks very sleek and I basically prefer the look...
That's me on the picture These pants are 20cm wide at the bottom (uncuffed), and are fairly tapered. I basically said I wanted slim fitting trousers, they gave suggestions and this is what came out of it.

As much as I like OTC socks, I tend to avoid them because they stick. I have this problem both with wool and cotton socks, and on cuffed pants.

Men's Ex had a special a couple of months ago on alterations, and Rrozestt seemed to be in their top 5 as well.

I recommend Rrozestt in...

What kind of process/stitch did she use? She basically just looked at my other pocket squares, and also at this guide from Sam Hober: http://www.samhober.com/howtomakeapo...cketsquare.htm
