I guess the perception of winner is a function of the observers IQ a) If you are sufficiently dumb to buy in the overwhelmingly made-up crap drooling out of "The Donald's" mouth, then Trump has won. b) If you are capable to distinguish demagoguery from facts, then Trump was pure sadness to watch. P.S.: I am not delusional enough to believe that there is a politician which does not occasionally spin facts, but Trump lives in a entirely different reality P.P.S.: Can...
True, I saw the Vass U-last in their store in Budapest once and it I really beautiful. Unfortunately most Vass shoes I find in shops are e rather chunky traditional Budapester lasts...
MY question is: Which is the most visually appealing shoe last in your opinion (so I am not asking for fit here, because here "good" is very subjective based on foot anatomy). I hope to learn more about lasts from makers I had little experience so far ... photos and links are much appreciated. I have mainly experience with shoes from Carmina, Edward Green, C&J, Allen Edmonds, Ed Meier and looked at plenty of real life examples from John Lobb Paris, Alden, Church's. For...
Late posting from last week, when I was on a business trip to the UAE. No full body shot this time, but a close up of shirt and suit fabric. ... suit is W.W. Chan (midgrey pinstripe from the Scabal Classics book) ... shirt is W.W. Chan (light blue royal oxford from Thomas Mason) ... tie is a navy grenadine by Drake's ... shoes are Crockett & Jones Edgware in black P.S.: Forgive the absence of a pocket square ... forgot it when packing in a hurry
Pictures of yesterday's outfit: Suit: Brooks Brothers 1818 Shirt: TM Lewin Tie: House brand of store HIRMER in Munich Square: Brooks Brothers Shoes: Crockett & Jones
Today: Suit: W.W. Chan (from Holland & Sherry's Classic Worsteds book) Shirt: W.W. Chan (from Acorn's Grasmere book ... it is ice blue, which is hard to see on the pics) Tie: Exquisite Trimmings Square: Brooks Brothers Cufflinks: Braun Hamburg Belt: Kreis Shoes: Carmina
True. the dark brown semi brogues are however more versatile for other occasions, which is relevant since we are doing a roadtrip with light luggage through Transylvania after the wedding. Here black oxfords would not be very useful.
Attended a wedding in Romania yesterday.
Some snapshots of today Suit: W.W. Chan (Holland & Sherry Classic Worsteds) Shirt: W.W. Chan (Thomas Mason) Tie: Atkinsons Pocket Square: Exquisite Trimmings Cufflinks: Brooks Brothers Belt: Crockett & Jones Shoes: Crockett & Jones
I have a question, which does not concern fit, but a recent repair of a suit: I had a little damage on the inside of a suit collar rewoven. Unfortunately, it is not as invisible as I had hoped. I know most people will say that it does not matter since it is on the inside of the collar and not visible when wearing the jacket, but then there is my OCD. So, is it possible to get the reweaving done better (in which case I would ask for the repair to be redone) or is this...
