What size shoe trees do people use for Barrie lasted Alden's in a 10D? I buy my shoe trees at a nearby store and they are all from Rochester Shoe Tree Co. (that's all I can get locally). Their size charts indicate that a size L tree is good for 10W - 12D, these are what I usually buy as all my footwear is in the 10-10.5D range and as the Barrie last runs large, in my mind a 10D Barrie equals a 'normal' 10D. I only ask because the fit on a Large tree is snug (it takes a...
Is there, or has there ever been an Oatmeal or Cream coloured Stark?
No pic, but I have a question for a tailor. What should I ask for when getting a pair of five-pocket pants (non-denim) taken in at the waist only? I've got a couple pairs of cords and cotton pants in a five-pocket style that fit well everywhere except in the waist. I've had some denim taken in at the waist which involve two small darts being put in above the rear pockets. It worked well enough, but the fit in the seat is a bit 'off' and I understand that it is much...
They work fine, they're a bit chunky but that's just the way it is with winter boots. I wear mine with straight leg pants and tapered denim, I don't think it looks too bad. Everyone around here wears Blundstone boots anyways so I don't exactly stick out.
Those would be more than sufficient, Toronto isn't that cold. The boots are waterproof so as long as your feet keep dry, you're all good. There really isn't a winter boot that can do waterproof, warm and stylish all at once (especially if you face salt and slush every day and don't want to invest a lot of money in boots that will be destroyed in a couple years).I wear the 062 model with thick socks and insoles and I don't have any problems with cold feet. That's just my...
Not really. They've got a lot of 'volume', so they're meant to be worn with thick socks. I've found them to more more than sufficient down to -25 Celsius or so with warm socks.
For sale is a SNS Herning 'Net' Cardigan in triple blue, size XL. I've worn it around 10 times. It's a cotton/wool blend with a more open weave than a Stark. Like most SNS knits, the fit is slim with long arms. I'm open to reasonable offers, but I'm already offering it for far below normal price so I won't take any lowballs. All sales final, ask all questions before selling. Please PM questions to me.
Thanks for the responses gents, I've been wearing them around my home to break them in (it's slush city where I live for the next 4 months) so they should be good by spring.
Just got a pair of ranger mocs in from the Club Monaco sale. I followed the sizing advice I found here (the suggestion was to take the same size as one takes in the Alden Barrie last), but they seem pretty tight. I got a pair of penny loafers last year in my 'normal size' (10.5D) and they were huge, so big that I had to sell them. I figured then that sizing down to 10D would work. How much can I expect the chromexel to stretch on the ranger mocs? I have some boots in the...
Get some Blundstone boots in the chisel-toe, non-lug soled version. Waterproof, rubber soled and not horrible looking. They're cheap and relatively disposable as well. I wouldn't wear $700+ boots in Canadian slush and salt, that's jsut silly.
