I'm not refuting your point that most people can't do one but what is the point of that comparison? What if i said "for people who do GHR's and claim them to be superior, can you deadlift 600...
Here are my three most recent purchases.. excuse the poor quality pics 1. Santoni FAM monks 2. JM Weston Conti 3. Union Imperial Loafers
Managed to take a couple of snaps of my Union Imperial shoes. These are Goodyear welted and the leather is very soft and supple. Will be wearing them to the office tomorrow
I'm sure there is atleast one person here who can help, or share their experiences on this matter!!
Hi All, I picked up a lovely pair of JM Weston Conti's off the B&S forum. I am having an issue with them at the moment. I'll try to convey what this is through a picture: If you refer to the above, you will notice that there is a grey area along the top edge as well as a stray piece of string sticking out. This string is a lot shorter now as I cut it. Basically what is happening is that pieces of fairly thick black thread have been coming off. I am concerned...
I would go something European to balance out traditional American / English style. Santoni could be a good option for you. I picked up a pair of JM Weston shoes not long ago. Very happy with them.

Still, I'd suggest trying on a bunch, even at the same size to get some ideas. I have even smaller wrists than you - 6.25 checking in. I'm wearing a 42mm right now and this looks small on me. I'm 6ft...

If you're doing it properly, it's perfectly...

You just have to be careful about pushing yourself too hard, and learn proper form. Some people may need flexibility work as well so they can safely pull off the floor. I've seen plenty of people hurt their back doing curls of all things, any exercise requires a concern for...
