I have a low arch (completely flat on one foot) and consequently a low instep. I sized down an extra half size on the 348 from what I would have expected because of heel slippage. It felt tight at first, but the leather stretched nicely and now is very comfortable. I'm going through the same thing with a pair of AS that are tight across the ball b/c I went with a size that wouldn't slip in the heel. For my slip-on shoes I added a tongue pad to help with heel slippage. ...
It's king in the north.
The only other time they didn't immediately name who the person was cast for was Ramsay Snow. Based upon that there are some theories that he's either Bloodraven or the Kindly Man.
I think of Mace Tyrell as fatter. So, I'm thinking Randyll Tarly. I don't think he looks like Victarion, who's much thicker in the arms and chest. Same with Euron. The other option could by Prince Doran Martell.
I got my Blakes about 10 days ago.Posted about them a couple times.
Is that a proper Hober?
I frequently wear patterned shirts and patterned squares, so I generally like solid ties. Grenadine gives texture without giving me another pattern. I also like royal oxford solid shirts, which have a small weave texture and looks great with a grenadine grossa larger texture.
x-post with AFPOS AS MTO thread: They're here! Thanks to Sarah for changing the shipping address to get them here today. Very pleased with the shoes and the service from AFPOS. The delay is obviously a production issue at AS. But, the quality is very nice. Some quick shots. upon first try-on of the 48 last it feels a little tight, but I'm sure they'll stretch a little; length is spot on, heel is pretty solid for a first wear- a little buckling on the inside of the...
It's wider behind the ball, but not at the ball. I have no room there. The left is a little tighter all the way. I have very low insteps, almost no arches at all. It's worse on the right than left, so that may be a factor.
A few more tidbits- The box says espresso not oak. I was concerned that the oak would be too light- I got a belt from AFPOS in oak some time ago and it's somewhat light than the shoesr. Could be the burnishing. Could be espresso is a handgrade color whereas oak is the exclusive color, much like C&J has two different chestnuts. I prefer the darker brown to the color of the oak belt. Definitely no complaints there. The sockliner says AS handgrade, not exclusive for...
