^^ speaking of stretching shoes, anyone had success doing that at home? Ive tried it at cobblers before but it has typically not worked that well, but perhaps I could be more brutal and persistent doing it myself.
Apart for the point about the socks (obviously white socks though), this is imo the opposite of how one (I..) "should" think about "streetwear". Why should the shirt be tight and the cuffs neat? Its supposed to be casual after all.
Finally ordered something from Old Town after years of looking at the page. The Borough jacket in black Irish linen http://www.old-town.co.uk/collections/product/products/the-borough
who knows how it will turn out... Hoping for the best, in which case I will order the same jacket in canvas and Harris tweed as well..
