Dude, Alden's San Francisco shop on Sutter at Kearny currently has chukka boots (and plain toe bluchers) in both whiskey and cigar shell in stock. Go there, try on the chukka boot in your preferred color a half-size down from your normal size, realize how sweet it is, fork over the $625, and leave the shop secure in the knowledge that you'll never have to buy another ankle boot again. Unless, of course, you really want to.
Everyone here is missing the forest for the trees. Eric Glennie is an artist, but his true medium is not clothing; it's photography. Look at that stark white backdrop and harsh flash! The brutal lighting and total decontextualization reduces those bizarre tie knots to flat, degraded images of sartorial pornography. Every one of his creations is the fashion equivalent of an ass-to-mouth cumshot smeared with runny mascara. Gentlemen, I now unmask Eric Glennie as none...
I think what you're looking for are Bonobos pants. Try http://www.bonobos.com/
For mid-price bourbon, I really like Buffalo Trace and Old Forrester 100 proof. If you are in one of the few mid-Atlantic states where it's marketed, pick up a handle of Ancient Age 10 year old (not 10 Star). It is far and away the best bargain in bourbon, IMO. Fabulous whiskey at a rock-bottom price, and in a plastic bottle to boot.
Is this the same as the C&J Harvard? And how does it stack up against the Alden LHS?
This thread is confusing me a bit. Does RRL stand for Rugby Ralph Lauren or DoubleRL? They're both striving for an iconic American style, but the former conjures an aura of East Coast WASP privilege (which has always been RL's strength) while the latter evokes Robert Redford as the Sundance Kid - equally classic Americana, but a totally different look.
XdryMartini, I really want a pair of those. AF21, right? I bought a pair of cigar shell Darltons from HenryBoogers as a holdover until I find a pair of Alden Whiskey Shell Longwings. The Darltons are pretty sweet shoes, but it's just not the same.
We always wore ours at football games. I still wear it whenever the hell I feel like it.
I have a clumsy habit of occasionally dragging a toe up the vertical face of the next stair I'm climbing, which abrades and gouges the leather on the toe of my shoe. I do the best I can to repair it with cream and then wax polish, but I recently did this to a pair of cigar shell McCallister boots and I am really upset with myself. I can't buff it out, and I know cordovan isn't to be polished too often. Should I go ahead and do it anyway? And does it take the same wax...
Not an expert, but my SFx5EP jeans stained a white OCBD that I had tucked into them. Problem was solved by an hour-long cold soak.
