Not in lace-up boots on a dry day as one poster pictured. Yes in Wellies when it is snowy. Yes also in Uggs or similar tall boots when it is snowy. Yes also in big, clunky black zip-up 12" galoshes when it is snowy. I speak with authority since the city I live in (Syracuse) has the record this year for snowfall in the county at about 113 inches (Bryan Williams said it so last night on the news) and unless you want wet, salt-stained pants, you have no choice. I keep...
Sorry, no pics but I have about a dozen of them, all French Cuff, medium spread: solids, including white and blue (herringbone, poplin and broadcloth) and gingham and I think they have performed very well. I have always bought them on sale and I benefit from the fact that I am an 18" neck and can wear a 36" inch sleeve in the French Cuffs because the bulk of the cuff prevents it from protruding too far (I am ideally a 34"). I think I got them for around 4 for $100 or so...

I love GOB and agree with almost everything he says. They gave him a grand total of five letters in the latest mag. so the best thing about GQ is shrinking month by month. I won't be renewing. YES, I did forget sockless--like that's such an emerging trend, too. And I...

Can you believe how much time this guy spends on research while still maintaining a tremendous wit? For a quick read, check out "Lamentations of the Father," bunch of essays.
The Prince's look is awesome. Good luck finding it if you live up here (Upstate New York, where I also live.) I assume you are headed for NYC for it at a minimum. Wedding sounds lovely: Geneva on the Lake, perhaps? Congratulations and best wishes.

Another vote for Lloyd's (the lace-up, right?) Not a fan of the tassel wingtip, else I would own a pair.
Probably not the best site to post this question. This brand is not going to get a lot of love here. I think most of their stuff--even their ads--looks like shit. They just never developed a solid brand.
Noticed the same thing. Hardly even look at it anymore, as it's always the same shit. Mostly just read Glenn O'Brien's column since he's a pisser and always right-on. GQ = Guy in a too small khaki suit, plaid shirt, striped tie and a tie bar. Even when they redress the pathetic guys in the too-large pleated chinos and corny wide leather jacket, they strap them in too-small clothes. Funny thing is that if you compare any of their model shoots to their advertising, none...
The spit shine derives from the military and is generally used in conjunction with a high-gloss "parade" model of the Kiwi brand of polish. Adding moisture adds a little exta shine. Spitting is a handy way to supply it. I use Meltonian cream (I know many SF'rs deride it as cheap, but it has been around a while is more readily available than some brands I have seen recommmended) and yes, I will spit on the area of the toe prior to buffing. I suppose a mister with water...
