I think interesting, textured/colored leathers and suede are the way to go with a PTB/derby. Even with a sleek last, I probably wouldn't go for a more conservative leather in that design because except to a very careful observer it won't distinguish itself from your crappy $100 mall "dress shoes" that most guys wear. For a brown/black/oxblood blucher, I need a little bit more going on - wingtip, captoe, split/moc toe, etc.
I received my Bella Spalla pre-order yesterday. It needs some tailoring so I'll refrain from posting pics for now but I'm thrilled with the quality.
I just got a pair of the tortoise sunglasses yesterday and they are an absolute steal. Stylish and very, very high quality.
I find it interesting that many analysts dismissed the new tire rules when they were first announced. The argument, as I recall, was that the optimal choices would be quickly apparent to the teams; they'd likely converge to roughly the same strategy and the variability intended by the expanded tire choices wouldn't meaningfully affect the outcomes on Sunday. In fact, that hasn't been the case at all.
Seems to me that Lewis struggles with the new start procedure but has otherwise been in good form. I'm reluctant to go much further than that in constructing a narrative. I'd of course like Nico to beat him this year, though.
For the record, over the years I've had a couple shirts out of ~20 that were slightly off in a measurement or two - in particular, one shirt was about half an inch big in the torso and another was slightly big in the collar - but there's been no discernible "order creep" pattern and in both cases the variances were within my tolerances. I supply complete measurements for each shirt, but I do reference previous order numbers in the notes in order to specify the collar and...
I have a pair of chinos in Brisbane Moss canvas and it's great. Soft but rugged. It feels much nicer than your typical cheapo duck canvas that #menswear brands use (not that I don't like that stuff too) while maintaining some of the same properties.
Thanks for the suggestion, I was able to join.I'm attending a wedding in Italy later this year that will come at the end of a 10 day trip from Zurich down to Rome. Lug-soled split-toes should be perfect to do double duty as shoes to kick around in as a tourist while still looking good with a light grey suit at an outdoor wedding.
Of my dozen+ shirts, the only one that I've experienced any shrinkage with is a particularly gauzy and rumply casual cotton.Which, by the way, is a fantastic fabric and I'd love to see more like it, @luxire. The blue version is sold out.
Can't believe I missed the split-toe derby GMTO! Exact color and sole combo I'd been wanting.
