When I used to have the luxury of a carpark at work, I kept a pair in my car and changed into them to drive home.I really hate driving in dress shoes, as I can barely feel the pedals, and also you scuff up your shine...
I'm imagining a loafer, but with the horsebit stuck through the toe of the shoe...
Actually, while we're on the topic of shoes, does Buck's in Sydney still carry Edward Green? I don't want to buy them there, but I would happily try some on and then order from Double Monk, as I'm likely to be in Sydney sooner than I'll be in Melbourne...
Do you know if he has any RTW stock or at least shoes to try on? I'm interested in G&G but unsure about fit...
Thanks gents. For reference, the best RTW fit I've found is Edward Green's 82 (ie, Chelsea). Without wanting to start yet another last comparison discussion, can anyone comment on how G&G compares just in relation to instep?
Gents, Can anyone comment on which G&G last best accommodates a high instep? FWIW I have my eye on the TG70... Thanks!
Well I've read every single post in this thread, and as far as I can see this question has yet to be asked: can anyone recommend an Oxford to accommodate feet with a very high instep? I am currently in C&J Hallams, which are all wrong for me. I've tried on AS (nope), Carmina (not a chance), and the Vass F last (much better but a bit stiff and also I find the last too round for my taste). The Edward Green Chelsea on the 82 is the best I've tried on, in terms of fit and...
I feel like Men's Ex has gotten less interesting/more mainstream of late. Maybe the change in editor? I spotted Rake Japan, it looks like a bargain at about 950yen, although I can't really read japanese so the international edition may be worthwhile at 3x the price...
Totally unseasonal sale post: would anyone like to buy a size EU48 cable-knit by Drumohr? The colour is an army green melange, 100% lambswool, round neck and ribbed cuffs. I bought it online last winter but it's a fairly long fit, and I am quite short. I wore it a handful of times but never loved it. I packed it for a trip to Japan anyway, but found a Drumohr store in Tokyo selling shorter fits for the Asian market, so it has stayed in the suitcase. Looking for $95...
I picked up five Borrelli shirts overseas (pics to follow). I can't see any basis for the suggestion that Borrelli has fallen off - there was a ton of handwork: yoke and shoulders, collar attachment, buttons and buttonholes, of course, but also both sides of the French fronts. Confusingly, some are marked as 'Royal Collection' while others aren't, but they all seem to be the same standard of finishing and cloth, although one of the Royals actually has a double row of...
