Hi all, I am looking at getting either a pair of Loake Mulligan: or a pair of Cheaney Tweed: From the shops I'm looking at, I could get the Loakes at 200 euros and the Cheaneys at 300 euros. A not negligible difference I guess. What think you people? Are the Cheaneys worth 100 euros more? In terms of construction and longevity? Also, is either of these boots appropriate to wear with a formal outfit in winter? I am looking for something formal enough to wear with...
Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I just got the Tom Bihn Aeronaut today after searching SF for "hand luggage" and seeing your post. I was looking for alternatives to trolleys. Fantastic piece of luggage - quality, workmanship... never want anything else any more.
ok forget it, I got it... just came to me where the error in my thinking was. Solved.
15 years out of school and with a non-science degree under my belt, my maths is a bit rusty. Need to brush up for a computer-based test.

I've had five shirts made by ModernTailor. I picked average back/average shoulders for a couple of the shirts and bent back/straight shoulders for the others. Can somebody knowledgable explain how exactly this information impacts the cut of the shirt, because to be honest, after experimenting with this in five shirts I have the impression that it makes f**k-all difference - here's one example of each: average back+average shoulders bent back/straight shoulders
Very good film. Have seen Talk to Her and All About My Mother from Almodovar, both of which are also very good.
