Nau Courier Wind Shirt in their “Fossil” (a slate gray) color. Great technical urban crossover piece that can be worn anywhere and is a killer travel basic. You can ball it up in your hand and it pops out unwrinkled – perfect lightweight jacket for fending off wind and rain. Size Large. Four-way stretch fabric with welded/taped seams and a DWR waterproof /windproof exterior. One zip/flapped chest pocket, zip front with snaps top and bottom, 3-snap cuff at sleeve and...
Medium Nau Shroud of Purrin Hoody softshell in their “Lodge” color ( a cool matte brown). Killer technical jacket that works well as an high performance/low key urban outerlayer. Two-way stretch fabric that’s win/water resistant, breathable, and lined in chest, back, and arms with light fleece lining for some extra warmth. Waterproof hood with adjusters. Side pockets with zips, interior zip pocket, cool zip stash pocket on left sleeve by Velcro cuff. Cool, versatile...
I have a 10 year old pair of the C&J Peals identical to JRD617's, but with double leather soles instead of the Danites. On the more casual end of the spectrum compared to the EGs, but insanely comfortable and hard wearing - I'm a big fan of that 325 last. Easily in my top 3 of the causal shoe rotation and, if and when the soles ever go, I'll throw some Danites on from BNelson.
As new Isaia spring/summer sports coat in their Aquachino fabric - a luxe, soft to the hand blend of 85% cotton and 15% silk that is double-faced: tan on the exterior and a very light green in the interior. Color is a classic khaki. This is from the Argento line - part of mainline Isaia that is probably their most Neapolitan cut. Model is Rover G, zero padding in shoulders, unlined except for shoulders and sleeves. Three patch pockets (barchetta chest pocket), lovely...
I am a 10.5 EE/EEE as well and have a couple pair of chukkas on the Loake 026 in a G fitting - they are the Kemptons..one in brown suede the other in navy suede. You should go with a 9.5/G. The 026 is a bit odd in the way it is sized between the F and G fits. If it was an F, you'd take a 10 but the G fitting has a lot more volume and the 9.5 works perfectly.
This is a no brainer: Loake all the way. I have the Kemptons in suede and they are incredibly versatile. I wear them with jeans, chinos, dress slacks and they would not look out of place with a suit. They are the first shoes I generally reach for when traveling as they can be dressed up/down and require only a quick brushing for maintenance. Danite sole is both comfy, weatherproof, durable and not overly bulky. No matter what anyone says, rain/wet weather doesn't bother...
Gorgeous Polo Ralph Lauren alligator belt strap in dark brown with a matte finish. Very lightly used with no scuffs, tears, worn spots or blemishes of any kind. Only sign of wear is two very faint depressions on the inside of the belt where the buckle was clamped down. Otherwise in as new condition. Belt is 1" wide and 39" long. It is marked a 36, but this would be best for someone with a 32 or 34 waist. Please note that it does not come with a buckle and does not have...
Here's a lightly worn - and by "lightly," I mean less than 20 times - Barbour International jacket that is basically as new/in perfect shape. No rips, tears, stains, smells (beyond faint odor of the wax). Only tweak is that I nicked the (gaudy IMHO) yellow "international" logo off the top right pocket but you can't even see where it was. All brass snaps, zipper, grey corduroy collar, fold over pockets…the usual bombproof Barbour goodness. It is a size 46, but these rigs...
Arc'teryx's top of the line riding shell in gray with dark gray insert panels in XL. Classic sidewinder waterproof zipper, high neck, waterproof pit zips, 2 waterproof zip pockets, plus interior pocket, snow skirt, waist cinch cords, welded velcro cuffs, see through upper left sleeve radio/pass pocket. 3L Goretex = utterly bombproof protection. NOTE: It does not have a hood - Arc went through a bunch of iterations of this jacket, some with hoods, some without, some with...
