I know it's silly, but I feel awkward wearing long johns in the South of England. The last time I wore them was when I was in Oslo in January. I have moleskin and cord 'jeans' that are warmer, but I like the idea of heavy denim. I guess I'll have to experiment. Any other feedback would be very welcome.
What denim should I get for cold weather? My heaviest jeans are RRLs. Should I go for Ironheart? Which fit of theirs is closest to a slim 501? Alternative makers? Cheers.
"The duo also designs for TEN C, another FGF- owned brand." Sounds as though TEN C is carrying on. Also note the M65 jackets with some wear in them (and note how they don't wear the jackets skin-tight! I wish the snow smock had the length f the M65 -- better proportioned, I think. But I fell in love with the hood and slanted chest pockets):
But if you look at Ten C's website you'll notice that it isn't updated. For instance it doesn't show the new liners. No idea if they're sloppy or just don't bother updating it because they're winding it down.
Actually I washed them at 95 degrees and tumble-dried them and they shrunk a bit in length, but next to nothing in width.
Only for some roles at some weddings.
--SOLD-- Another pair of shoes that isn't a perfect fit for me, alas. I've hardly worn them, as you can see from the picture of the inside and soles. But I did have them topy-ed, which will make their soles practically eternal. This is a very versatile classic, and I'm selling it cheaper than it would normally cost on eBay. Shoe trees not included. No returns. Shipping: $10 European Union, $20 rest of the world. I'm based in Englad. I'll ship as soon as PayPal payment...
I'm clearing up some space in my closet, so regrettably I'm getting rid of near-duplicates. This is a pair of Church's I've had for quite a while (I think they're pre-Prada, so a really solid, old fashioned pair of English shoes), but not worn all that much as the size isn't perfect on me. They have a fair amount of life left in them, as you can see from the pics. Or the factory could restore them to near-new condition for a modest fee, of course. Shoe trees not included....
^ If that's the case, I'm glad I got my snow smock in time. I'm very pleased with it, except that the length may turn out to be a bit fashiony a few years down the line (I would've made it an inch or so longer). Anyway, it may well be that Ten C continues: isn't the idea that the collection doesn't change over the years?
Spot on, Holdfast.
