Just a few things over the past couple days: Flat Head F310 jeans: Loake Pimlico chukkas: Sutor Mantelassi laceup oxfords: myke
So I wanted to get a new pair of chukkas that I can take with me while traveling abroad. I've always wondered about the Loake Pimlico chukkas, but could never find real life pictures of it. The only pictures I could find were from the store websites. So I ordered a pair of Pimlicos in dark brown calf from Herring Shoes a few days ago, and they came in the mail today. Here are some pics, straight out of the box: I also have a pair of C&J...

Not bad but that shirt would look and fit a lot...
