I have a couple of responses here: 1. Re the OP, Fishball, keep in mind that, if you are contemplating EG trees, these are not lasted. They are far more generic than that. For example, mine say "202/606 9C," indicating that they are suitable for a UK Size 9, Fitting C, and pretty well any EG last, since the round-toe lasts (202, 82, etc.) use the same trees as the square-toe ones (606, 88, 888, etc.) So, at least with EG, your conjecture wouldn't pan out. 2. I'm...
No.
A little over a month ago, I posted this on the "other" forum: http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/f...ad.php?t=83121 This Cheaney product is the only paste-wax polish (not cream) I've been able to find in the authentic British chestnut shade. Incidentally, ADL, the primary purpose of a paste-wax polish--that is a polish product containing a true wax (usually carnauba, but sometimes beeswax)--is to afford better protection against the elements (and a higher shine)...
For those of you--yfyf, Threadbearer, whacked--who find distasteful the wimpy, knitted polo-shirt collars that tend to curl and lose all shape, some Brioni polos are available with a stiffer, higher, stitched, and more structured collar. I've picked up several just like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/NWT-BRIONI-POLO-...QQcmdZViewItem There are others out there too: http://cgi.ebay.com/425-NWT-Brunello...QQcmdZViewItem As for the OP's comments re warmth, I can...
The only ones I like in that listing are the suede oxfords: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...ault_color=Tan Can these really have Dainite soles as advertised? And are they C&J or Sargent?

But if `blake' construction is good enough for Lattanzi, it's good enough for you right? Sorry Roger but l don't like the line of logic. Since you seem skeptical about Lattanzi doing Blake construction, consider the following thread appearing presently in the B&S...

A little OT, but woolymammoth, is there much antiquing in the G&G Vintage Oak? There seems to be some on the toe in your picture, but it's kind of hard to tell for sure. I know that the G&G Vintage Oak is a crust leather--like the EG leathers--and thus gets its color and finish after...
Ron, that was very informative. Empirical facts are always useful in dispelling misconceptions, of which there are many, it seems, when it comes to dress shoes. I have one point to add and then a question. First the point. When Harry Lean speculates that high-end makers don't use Blake/Rapid construction, he is implying that it is an inferior method of construction to the others he names. However, consider this: most forumers consider Blake construction greatly...

What hasn't been copied are the fabulous skins Bob, the owner of Fleming's, goes to Paris to buy. Their service is wonderful. Belts are their business. They have some nice buckles too. How would you rate those?
