These are great tips, thanks everyone! I know I'll definitely look like a tourist, but if I can be less of a target, then why not. Plus, I am US-born of Italian descent, I speak Italian (more or less) so I can make it work Very interesting on the chinos advice. I swore I read somewhere that colored (not khaki) chinos (lightweight) were what everyone wore in the summer. I'll definitely re-think that idea!
Sorry to revive an old thread - but I am also going to be in Italy during the oppressively hot summer months. Having a hard time figuring out comfortable but stylish shoes. Was thinking superga but wanted something maybe a bit classier. Any suggestions on what is a trendy/popular brand in Italy right now? Trying to do my best to avoid looking like a tourist (although, i know I'll be touristy no matter what!). Thanks!
I'll be traveling to Italy in August (Venice, Rome, Florence, Siena, Pisa, Bologna/Parma, Milan, some of the northern lake region) and I endeavor to avoid looking too touristy (minus the camera around my neck). Any thoughts or suggestions on popular Italian sneaker/comfortable shoe brands in Italy right now (edit: planning to wear these with chinos mainly, possibly shorts if it is oppressively hot)? I know its going to be exceptionally warm during the trip, so any...
Hey all -- I've searched and searched and its difficult to find exactly what I'm looking for. I know there are tons of threads on wedding attire and I don't want to go down that rabbit hole. I think my ask is a bit more straight forward: I'm wearing a custom black suit, white shirt, and tie TBD for my wedding in the fall. My plan was to wear my AE Park Avenue captoes, but I also thought of taking this as a good excuse to add another black shoe into my rotation. I...
Did a quick search on this but found more info about the Bayfields than the Daltons. Im about to pull the trigger on some Daltons but wanted some SF advice on the rubber sole options AE offers. Has anyone had them do the custom sole on a Dalton? If so, any pics? If not having AE do it, my other thought was to just wear them as is for a while and then when they are ready to being re-soled get them rubber soled then. Or, another option, is to just Topy them from day...
Agreed - if you do go theres a few good places in Georgetown on Wisconsin (I think one is Georgetown Optician) and in NYC I got my last pair of glasses from Robert Marc's SoHo shop -- I love them! Also, in SoHo on West Broadway there are a ton of other optical shops - including an Oliver Peoples.
Just because I said I'm excited to wear them in the summer doesnt mean I wont wear them now. It just exciting to have these shoes for hot summer days was my point.
Agreed -- those pictures do not do the shoes justice at all. They are super sleek (even compared to other bals on the 5 last). My camera (and camera skills) are terrible, so I look forward to seeing your pictures! I got two pairs of shoe trees for 35 bucks from the outlet while ordering the 2 for $200 so figured having trees in them cant hurt. I'm actually excited to wear them in the summer; the lightweight feel is going to be great!Thanks for following up -- I'll be...
Thanks! I really like them a lot more than I was expecting to and the brown color is really a nice addition to my current rotation of browns: chili randolphs, walnut strands, burnished brown fifth aves -- the strawfut brown is, like you said, a bit redder. I really am looking forward to wearing those this summer.Also - thanks for the input about the Saphir cream -- I'll give it a try. Did you just apply it to the mesh the same way you would the rest of the shoe (albeit...
...And here are the Strawfuts The "stain" is on the left shoe at the upper left corner where the leather meets the mesh. These pics were taken with a bright flash in a room with bright lighting -- thats about as noticeable as it gets...my eye goes to it, but overall I think its fine. I also noticed the stitching on the heel of the left foot is a on a bit of an angle, but I didnt notice this until taking pics and I definitely didnt feel it in anyway at all when wearing...
