Not going to lie...I double checked to make sure that wasn't my photo. I often wear this exact look though with normally solid red socks.
Barker Black is their attempt to compete with the high end British makers. It is a joint venture between Barker and I forget the other maker; In my opinion, it fails miserably in terms of design and quality for the price they charge.
This is all about foot shape and best fit. I can only comment on my own personal experience with the lasts, which is individual to my own foot shape.I am a perfect 12 C on the 5 last...I have never had a shoe fit me as well as does that last. I can wear it for hours and still feel completely comfortable, which is why I try to buy as much as possible on it.Conversely, I wear a 12 D on the 7 last...don't ask me how that works, but only buy the 7 if I REALLY like the shoe. ...
Thank you.I wear Strands, PA, McAllisters, and the like with denim quite regularly.That's just pompous. I don't think there is anything to say beyond that. So if someone is into fashion and style, takes an entry level job, he should not own dress shoes that he can rotate? I did not realize that style was conditional upon salary....
That would be phenomenal. I'd buy that brand in a heartbeat just for the champagne.
Côte d'Azur as well...it is very common there. This is quite an old thread, so rather than getting into it with any of the previous posters, I will second the suggestion of loafer socks. Make sure to get good ones though as the round only ones tend to show which just looks trashy.
I thought context was less of an issue here as the thread is essentially "imagine pairing your own wardrobe to two suitcases, what would you take?" However, since it was requested. I am in my 20's, finishing school, and have a fairly SF styled wardrobe. Metlin - thank you so much for that very detailed response. You echoed my thoughts quite similarly, which I strongly appreciate. I packed 16 shirts for 5 months in Milan and that number seemed to serve me quite well. ...
Maybe it is a fit issue. I have tried on every C&J last and nothing has come close to fitting me as well as the 5 last.
I bought these shoes from SteveSmith before going to Europe for the past few months and they just simply do not fit. They are the Alden for Brooks Brothers tassel loafers that are currently available in a hybrid cordovan color and chestnut brown...almost shell #8 color. They are sized at a 12C though I would argue that they should fit an 11.5 narrow or 12D MUCH better. They are quite big in the heel for me, hence the sale. I wore these for about an hour before...
Hello all - I have decided to do some major purges and these two items are amongst the losers. I would rather just buy a new pair of shoes or something as I wear my go-to watch every day and these just sit around. I am also amiable to trades with unused gift cards being the first priority. Sorry for the low quality photos...my camera did not survive my flight to the USA from Milan. Please add $7 east of Chicago for shipping, $10 west of Chicago. Insurance is...
