Hi all, I tend to wear down the outer edges of my shoes VERY quickly, and have been using the plastic heel plates on the outside edges to prevent this. However, I can't stand them. (1) They make a lot of noise, and (2) I find them really slippery for the break-in period, and have actually fallen a few times. It's especially bad on smooth tiling and laminate flooring. Does anyone know if a rubber equivalent exists? Or other suggetions? I ran across this picture on a...
Hi all, I'm looking for any of the following Barbour jackets in size small or 36: - Barbour Ashby, small - Barbour Bedale, size 36 - Barbour Sapper, size small If you have one reach out and we can work on a deal! Offering $150, but it depends on condition from used -> new.
5'9, 160lbs, roughly 38" chest. (Normally wear a very slim 38 short jacket, though some of the looser fitting 36 jackets work on me). Which model do you think would work best? These all seem sized very large, and both the bedale/beaufort seem like I'd need to definitely size down to a 36, and possibly even a 34! How much slimmer is that new Ashby model? The guy from above made it sound like a 36 would work, but I'm not sure.
Hi all, Whenever I travel, selecting shoes is one of the most difficult parts of my decision. Typically I do a mix of activities, and it's hard to cover them all with 2 pairs of shoes. What are your suggestions for a trip that looks something like this? - 75% walking through cities on normal pavement or indoors - 25% outdoor hikes that require waterproof shoes and good grip For the outdoor hikes, I plan to just use a pair of solomon trail runners. For the 75% walking...
Hi all, I'm looking for some kind of lightweight travel boot or shoe that would work both for light hikes, but also would look decent for nightlife to be worn with jeans or chinos. Right now I'm thinking something like a chukka boot, but would want details like this: - Little to no heel on it (0.25-0.5" at most) - A rubber sole, preferably mini-lug or similar. Basically want it to be durable but also a little dressy. Regular rubber or dainite could be acceptable, but I...
Hi all, TL;DR: Senior level product management generalist can't decide if he should go a more technical route, an MBA/more business-y route, or take a shot at starting his own thing (but feels he has no advanced skills and no ideas). I don't have a formal CS degree, but rather an engineering degree. I somehow ended up in several internet marketing and product management roles over the last 7-8 years, eventually working my way up to Director level for a large media...
Horizontally, yes, but long-ways, the tip of my big toe is sort of brushing up against the end of the shoe.
Odd request, but does anyone have an old pair of AE's in 8.5E on the 5 last they could donate to me? I don't care if the uppers are destroyed. Basically I'm somewhat between sizes - a 9D and 8.5E. The 9D feels a little long on me, but the 8.5E is a little tight at the front of my big toe, and might be too short. In the store it's not too awful, but I'm concerned that an 8.5E might kill my foot over extended periods of time. I was hoping to find a cheap/free pair of...
I'm looking for exactly the same - but where the hell can you find tropical weight wools off the rack?I've scoured the web for them but can't find any place that carries it. Everyone simply goes with linen, or a wool/linen, cotton/linen blend.
Any suggestions on a good place to find a slim, fairly inexpensive tropical weight wool suit? I'm in the same position as OP and didn't really want to spend too much on a linen/seersucker suit that is less versatile.
