I attended a wedding in Hawaii last year and the grooms had off white rigs made up. They looked amazing and I begged them to make the event BT but there was too much resistance by the families so, I didn't have an excuse to order my own OWDJ OR get to wear my tux. However, an OWDJ is on my list for 2015, I imagine I'll sport it at a future event (wedding) back home (Hawaii), even though black tie is highly unlikely there and I would probably outshine any groom in...
Congratulations, those look great! I very nearly chose the pedder cap toe for my most recent order, absolutely lovely design!Are they all the same size? Do you have any fit notes for us on the different lasts? I've so far stuck with the classic last for my pairs so I would be interested to hear your feedback. I'm also planning a loafer for my next pair so I would appreciate hearing amy tips you have about ordering and sizing.Beautiful shoes!
@patrickBOOTH would you mind expanding on what the cracked lining is/was? Also where it occurred?I'm curious about what happened but admittedly I am not (yet) as knowledge about the anatomy of these shoes.Have you experienced the same kind of breakdown in other pairs, and do you attribute it just to your wear? For example, are you concerned it will happen to your other pairs with time?If this is OT I'm happy to take this to a PM.Thank you
TBH I would avoid the dark colors navy, black, d. brown, but other than that I think most of the light colors of brown, khaki, grey would be fine. I also happen to think no one would really question charcoal.Additionally it's my feeling that most people don't think about these things as much as we do, so the excellent cut, quality, and appearance of your outfit would supersede any marginal questions of perfect color matching.
I would love to know this as well. Mr.Porter has few models at 30% off.
Agreed, I've only had shoes re-lasted after modifications were made to a last. It made a "modest" difference.My latest order will be made with those modifications. Should be a true test of this service.
I am in agreement with everyone here. It might seem odd to hear but I've often felt like for what you get in quality and customiszation (compared to shoes priced right below) St.Cs represent a deal. I also think that those who have trouble with fit in the other RTW and even MTO brands will find St.Cs Customized/Personal Last service to be an excellent option. I also think the service you get at this level far exceeded that which is offered by similarly priced brands with...
Beautiful shoes! I'm hoping to put my next order in any day now Are those 608 or 609?
Great peccary shoes! I gave some attention to a beloved pair of cordovan shoes that I've decided will be better off in a new home, so I tried to get them back to show form. This is the before I got started, mostly just dusty. . This is after the application of a cleaner/conditioner. I buffed them after a few hours but the surface was still sticky so I let them sit over night and buffed them again to bring out this shine. This is after the application/buffing of...
