I've always liked Alexis, but I suppose that's out(?). Of course, I'm the guy whose first choice for a boy's name is McLovin.
And Unipair would have a lot of my money if they stocked US 12D (UK 11E). I can understand why they might not get much demand for that size from the Asian market.Edit: I see they do have some models in UK 11E. Oh, this could be bad!
Although I don't mind red ties, I much prefer burgundy. Both of the (deep) red ties that I own have textural interest: one has textured pindots and the other has large, approximately 1/16" twill weave, or I think of it as a narrow self-stripe. In general, I dislike ties with a plain satin finish, perhaps because they seem to be a favorite of The Donald.
I own both the McCallum and Tetbury boots. The Tetbury is considerably more pointy that the McCallum, so much so that I wear my McCallums as casual boots, but my Tetburys for business casual (the Tetburys also shine up better). IIRC, the McCallums are on the 325 last and certainly resemble my Darlton wingtips more than they resemble my Tetburys. I can check the last when I get home tonight (if I remember). I can't comment on the Brecon on Chepstow, since I own...
I honestly don't know why C&J calls the leather on the Tetbury's "antique nubuck". I own two pairs and treat them like regular calfskin, whereas other "nubuck" shoes I own look like suede with a very short nap, just enough to give a matte finish. The oldest of the two pairs of Tetburys' has developed a nice patina.
Are the Darwin elasticated loafers going on sale? I have a pair in dark brown, very much like EG's dark oak, and I love them.
Thanks! I checked them out and they have nothing for me. Great prices though!! (especially for Navy (M) or Army Green (M, L) Stark).
Website?
I've found it best to deal with Shoemart by phone. Models shown on their website are often out of stock. IIRC their Alden seconds don't even get posted on the web.
I don't know what's going on at EoM right now, but I've gotten very good service. They worked with me last Spring to order a pair of EG Westminsters at their sale price, even though the Westminsters weren't listed on the website and they didn't have them in stock. The shoes were delivered only 2 weeks after their estimated delivery date. Then, on a Sunday in September I ordered a pair of C&J Tetburys that were in stock and I had them by the following Wednesday. So they...
