Good pictures of the Roy Boot have proven to be impossible to find in the wild. They're like Bigfoot--the few pics that have emerged are grainy and nondescript. I'm still not convinced they exist. Happy hunting. Quote: Originally Posted by cicero79 Been hunting around for any pictures of the Roy Boots.

The amount you get off ebay will hardly make it worth the time and effort to post your auction, then package and...
Passed on a nice Belvest suit today because it was double-breasted. Admired the craftsmanship for a while, though. Also found a number of Oxxford blazers but they were all gray (don't find grey blazers all that useful) and 2 of the 4 had no vents.

Whoa...."Aniline pull-up" and "Chrome Excel" are different leathers? I thought they were the same, but Shoe Mart has them listed as separate options.

A lot of truth there, and I'm sure we all have stories like that. A recent example from my own life: with the frequent rain in northern Cal. this spring, I've received far more positive notice and comment on a pair of thrifted molded rubber LL Bean hunter's boots than on any of my other shoes--be they C&J's, Aldens, EG's, what have you.

Found a Brioni sportcoat in a light brown herringbone tweed. It's beautiful and in perfect condition -- never knew tweed could look so sharp. It's a 36, and I typically take a 38, so the shoulders fit great but it may be hair tight in the chest (even if I have the back seam let out). I'll see what my tailor says.
