I completely agree that heavy woollen overcoats/greatcoats are impractical these days, in Aus especially. I have a really nice greatcoat that only ever gets worn when I go overseas unfortunately. They've gone out of fashion for the reasons mentioned, as with heavy suiting. But my own personal opinion is that countrified outerwear doesn't work so well with a suit. I say the same about RMWs. Opinions vary on these issues clearly! I also, personally, find double breasted...
My opinion - I just can't understand the waxed Barbour-over-nice-clothes (or a suit) look. I find it a really jarring contrast. Same goes for militaristic jackets like the M65. Works for fashion bloggers, but whenever I see someone in the city trying to pull it off, I just find it odd. To me, this look doesn't work at all for most people: In terms of outerwear than can walk the line between formal and casual, I'd go for: A navy Barbour Liddesdale (bit of a step up in...
To be fair to the Japanese, this was also once sold in that most venerable of institutions, Henry Bucks...http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:mogV2MbRTooJ:www.henrybucks.com.au/store/Barbour-Bedale-Wax-Windowpane-Cotton-Jacket.html+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au
This looks like a good umbrella deal as well on a Fox automatic: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/fox-umbrellas-automatic-umbrella?utm_placement=13&referer=YCLVVH&mode=guest_open&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Automated%20Daily%20Promotional%202016-03-26&utm_term=Daily%20Promotional I personally own a Kent Wang one, wooden shaft, which I love and has been great other than I've made a tiny rip in the canopy somehow - anyone know any umbrella repairers in...
How do people generally go in sizing the 201 last (specifically the First Avenue boot) v the 5-65 last? I'm a 10.5C or B in the 5-65. Cheers. Also, has the date of the next seconds sale been confirmed? I read early April in an earlier post.
Thanks, went with TZ Laces in the end, they seem quite well regarded.
Thanks. Well navigating Taobao really stretched my year 9 Chinese to its limits, but I just managed to finally buy 7 of these for $87 AUD shipped. I gather they are factory seconds. I'll report back if they arrive... http://world.taobao.com/item/520137474763.htm?fromSite=main&spm=a312a.7700846.0.0.f8HomS&_u=i2kj90bb77e4 Taobao seems to have refunds though which is not bad. It also seems that pretty much all Woodlore products can be had on Taobao (they are all made in...
I need to buy some good quality thin flat boot laces, similar to these. Any ideas? Doesn't matter if it's local or on the web, not urgent. Thanks
I haven't looked at this thread in about... 2000 pages so apologies if this same question has been asked recently: Is there a current "most economical" option for wooden shoe trees? I've recently come into quite a few new paits. Thanks.
^^The pants taper is too agressive to the ankle/knee for my tastes, but it is just "taste" of course.
