^ Barrie last in boots can look nice. Never seen an Indy on the Barrie, though, as those are usually on the Trubalance. The natural chromexcel plain toe boot on the Modified last is gorgeous. I think it's a Shoemart exclusive.
Hi folks, I've been talking with Keith about a potential shoe, and he suggested I post here to drum up interest. So far we don't have any bluchers, so (as hinted at above), I'd propose the following shoe: -Shortwing blucher -Color 8 shell -Aberdeen last -Regular (non-metal) eyelets -360 degree welt -Antique edgetrim -Double waterloc sole The idea behind this shoe is to provide a four-season, weather-friendly alternative to the popular #8 longwing on a sleeker last. The...

The no hooks, ravello, and antique edgetrim combo is terrific. (I suppose they could be slightly more awesome with a double waterloc sole, but whatever.)

Do not wear any kind of chinos to a wedding unless it's an informal wedding. If it's cocktail attire, my guess is that chinos would look too dressed down next to others in suits, or anyone wearing trousers.
^ As much as my service experiences at the Madison Ave store have been bad, I will say that that might be a good idea; was just there and they had gotten in a huge amount of whiskey in over the past few months, including the LWB. They also have a whiskey monk and a very nice whiskey Aberdeen captoe bal.

Should be fine. Suede is generally more susceptible to denim bleeding. If you're worried, apply some conditioner, like Saphir Renovateur, to the your shell before wearing.

I want a pair of Ravello NST but i'm afraid to order over the internet for fear of getting a light colored pair. When the Shoe Mart has its Alden sale i'm going to call see if they can pick me out a pair of Ravello's with a lot of red tones in them. Don't be afraid. I'm sure you'll be fine. The difference is,...
