I think it really depends on the place. I tend to avoid the "nicer" restaurants that might attract more of a crowd that wouldn't normally go otherwise… generally seem to be hit or miss with more of the latter. I did have a good lunch at Fundamental which always has interesting food and a nice dinner at FIG in SaMo, although they do not seem to be participating this time.
My GAT mids are really excellent. The leather is flawless and the stitching extremely clean and precise. Maybe there's a bit more room for error with the nubuck? I've never really been a fan of the velcros anyway… but bummer you gotta send 'em back.
Nice fit Roycru, but tell me about the art. I collect a lot of similar stuff.Not that I condone Crocs, but in the limited settings they might be acceptable (on a boat, or the beach) when would wearing them with socks ever make sense? There was this dude we used to call "Crocs with socks" for that very reason.
