I would be interested in almost anything- Keats, Hulatt, Moore, Wilson, Hunt or some custom design oxford - with an Adeleide design at the top of my list. They are my favorite.
AS Blake (handgrade), made on one of 3 possible handgrade lasts, but to Exclusive production standards in burnished oak.
Pray tell.Some of us need to know time frames to set aside funds so the wife doesn't notice a large purchase. Of course, it would help to know what model will be available as well.
Hoping for an oxford in oxblood or a bit lighter in burgundy. Missed out on the oxblood Moores.
At long last here is the dark purple/black grenadine fina #35. Although my shirt stripes and jacket are washed out, I think the tie color is pretty true to life on my monitor. Sometimes it appears more violet, sometimes more magenta depending on the light.Sorry for the delay, no work Monday for 15th Century War Criminal Day.
Deleted message. Figured out a way around my error message.
I've got it, but with no pics. I'll wear it Monday and get a pic. No tie Friday at my office.
When I was asked where I got my tie (dark purple/black grenadine fina), I answered "Thailand" and the questioner thought it was a store called Tie Land. I figured that would now be my standard answer to where I get my ties.
I wear my Somerville with suits all the time in the fall and winter. They look especially good with flannel IMO. They are balmoral boots, so they are more formal than the Northcote. But, as long as you feel comfortable wearing any bluchers with suits, I'm not sure boots would make much difference. I wouldn't wear anything with speedhooks or a commando sole with a suit though.
The different lasts are different. Some are more generous than others. Some of my AS are 8UK. Others are 7.5UK. The same is true of my C&J. My one pair of Aldens are 8.5US. In other words, YMMV.
