yep, Kulata's fits r always outstanding, that's why I don't get what he says, as opposed to what he does. FWIW I don't see anyone here being pedantic about rules. Thx man. That Minnis navy is beautiful cloth. a real inky navy with loads of character.
my view: Those Carmina chukkas rok like crazy. I got the Loden and love them. I can see u wearing the tobacco with a lot of SC-type fits (not suits necessarily) but imo you'll need cuffless trews with high hems. I found that I have only a couple pairs that work with the high ankle.
