I might also, but only with slim, uncuffed pants, which I generally don't wear w/ a coat and tie. I should probably add these to Manton's personal "rules" thread.
I screamed a little inside when I saw that word.FWIW, I like oxfords w/ suits and bluchers w/ sport coat. Hate captoed bluchers and really only like wholecut models or those "sleek" ones w/ angular, fairly vertical quarters.
^ you stole my line! Although, I was going to add "blue." I'm into color that way, while to some they all look the same. We tend to have that effect on people.
Please join me in wishing RRL Clothing a happy two weeks off.
Very interesting. Thanks for this and your other informative posts.Is that price comparison of GY to Blake or to Blake-Rapid? I would think Blake would be much cheaper than Blake Rapid, given the need for less material and fewer steps.Neat. Thanks too, N. Do you know if anyone still uses them, Alden or AE, for example?DW, let me echo that the HCC is a tremendous, wondrous resource. I dropped down that rabbit hole like Flying Monkey a few years back.
Oh, I could find plenty of examples where I think DW's language could have used, while not a "dumbing down" as he's said recently, certainly a softening. You'll recall that I've made that point more than once in posts and pms. But my post of that quote here was quite relevant, particularly in the context of your claim that DW is sole cause of the fight here and elsewhere, and particularly these parts of that quote:
Thelonius, very interesting question about compressing the insole by machine. I'd never heard of it. Do you remember where you did? DW's thought that an insole that could be compressed wouldn't make a good insole seems reasonable too. If it had been invented, I wonder what other disadvantages, if any, have prevented it from gaining traction. FYI everyone, thelastquestion was a troll and has been spamminated. He had been been banned before by other mods (originally...
There are many approaches to the single summit. But as you've observed, it isn't lonely at the top.
Unfortunately, this seems to be the case. From another thread, not involving DW or handwelting:Fortunately, he has other redeeming qualities.
I think this makes a great point. And the point is not, as one or two misconstrue, that GYW are symbols of despair.His statements, like all statements, have meaning only in a context. The context was RP arguing that GY have the advantage in that they can be made more cheaply than HW, allowing more people to purchase them. In light of this, DW was saying that cheapness was a part of despair, not GY. This is completely compatible with the thought that some GY shoes are...
