Until recently, boots were worn with suits, though many would suggest that boots aren't formal enough these days to wear with a suit, apart from tweeds, etc. Myself, I pair boots with suits all the time, mainly jods/chelseas which have a clean toe line, and look identical to shoes when standing, etc. (though must be cognizant when it comes to chelseas of the elasticized sides i.e. when sitting, with jods instead having a buckle closure so as to not be all that different...
BTW, Logan ... love ya, buddy,, but as to "ghettos" AND bottles ... ever been to Jane + Finch? Try to take anything out of their hand, and well, .... MAN, they'll hit you over the head. Sigh, sounds then like Baltimore, Instiches, and don't go there myself even IF they have proper air conditioning --- did I mention that it's like 100=plus degrees Fahrenheit in the City? That's like 50 degrees Celsius, and half the temp for the boiling of water ... seriously, this is Canada...
LOL LOL LOLHad a black car way back in the day, a (REAL) Mustang II ... last of its kind (sigh); got stopped by every single RCMP'er plus when taking her for a ride, and don't even get me started on how often I was pulled over for zero reason by the troopers when going south of the border; funny thing is, I was a good driver (well, at least, didn't speed or anything during so-called ordinary commuting hours, notwithstanding my;V-8 begged to do so ... meanwhile, these days,...
Relish Bar & Grill, 2152 Danforth Ave. (Greektown), Toronto. Small bistro-styled wine and tapas bar: plates are portioned, being small but decent, the idea being to order more than one dish. Casual atmosphere, with a live band on Sunday afternoons following brunch apparently. Prices are very reasonable, ranging from only $8 to $12 per dish, and less for appetizers. Euro-Canadian food, with pasta and seafood to chicken and beef offerings. Food is decent, and well...

Something is definitely going on in this country, but don't quite know what either, other than there seems to be a ton of pent-up frustration that's spilling out in odd ways, like the recent hockey riots in Van. People just aren't as nice it seems, then, a lot of...
PS... BTW and G'DAY, Neo ... saw the Katy Perrh cancellation news (my condolences) ... Meantime, here's to tops scores on your internship, trust all that is going well...
*sorry, double post*
ps. sorry, had a bit to drink tonight (as if that's not apparent); fact is, I'm totally TICKED off... been supporting a certain dog rescue group since forever, money and otherwise, for EONs, and they gave away a dog that we were interested in, had dibbs on per se. Anywho, upset about it--as that's kinda just wrong.

Yes--there are many makers of semi-formal/corporate dress shoes. If you're looking for "made in the US" then you've two makers to choose from--of which Allen is one, and Alden is the other. If that's not an issue, then do be sure to check out the Northampton, England crowd--specialist shoe makers since,...
Quote: Originally Posted by lincolnshirepaul Anyone know where I can find a shirt with a similar or same fabric to the one in this picture here: Only the cuff is visible, but I imagine it's not hard to visualise the rest of the shirt. Acorn Shirting (England) makes a very similar pattern (Regent 200 Pink, in the Classic book): see, http://www.filmnoirbuff.com/images/329.jpg Note: the striping is more widely spaced, thus giving the illusion...
