Hi Mike.. The arms on the SS madras you posted last week seem quite a bit longer than past versions and also seem to lack the notch. Is that true? Not that the notch matters, but it seems like that part of the construction changed completely.

Speaking of madras, this week it got a bit hotter, so I'm rocking my red/blue/white madras with rolled up sleeves a lot. Man, it's gorgeous, the pattern is cool, and the cloth is so lightweight and breathable, yet solid.

I have to ask, what sort of fabrics are you thinking about for fall in the Marcello jackets?

i get my walts and rivets hemmed at kathy's cleaners in milpitas sq. it's near my office and i'm often there for lunch anyways, so it's pretty convenient. she also does a great job and always compliments the quality and construction of the pants i bring in.

definitely pick up a pair of rivets if you like slim chinos. the rise is lower than walts and they fit more like jeans than trousers. the leg opening is ~ 0.5" smaller. for summer, i'm loving the the grey oxford cloth, papaya canvas, and clay canvas. khaki canvas is a good staple and can basically be worn year round in the bay area.

Thanks for the tip, I'm definitely going to check them out - any idea on the cost? I'm paying $10 right now, don't know if that's a terrible deal or not.

Thanks

I've been debating this as well....all the recent real-life shots I've seen of these LWBs have been fantastic

shoe trees are still recommended even if you have a big rotation...actually they're recommended especially if you have a large shoe rotation. So while you're not wearing the shoes, you can keep them stored with trees so they will keep their shape for a long time.

i'm guessing the shoe trees are less necessary since they're work boots.

You're making it difficult -_-. Good shoe trees cost. Such basic ones - http://www.flek.pl/szczegoly/27/prawidla_drewniane - wouldn't be of much use?

post #12612 of 37564

I throw a tree in anything $300 or more (no sneakers tho).

good point, that may be part of it...although I put trees in my CXL Indy's, which are technically considered a work boot.

generally speaking, a decent shoe tree will only cost maybe 5% or less compared to the total cost of your shoes, so it's usually a wise investment when you're buying a quality pair of footwear. But, I've never owned this specific type of boot that you ordered, so I'm not sure what the general consensus is on trees for these.

Anyone else who owns these care to chime in?
post #12614 of 37564

sure, I have them and I use trees.

 

when I went to Costa Rica, I wore them about half of the week (whenever we weren't on the beach) and didn't have the trees along with me. I noticed a difference. they definitely will retain their shape better if you use trees.

I have trees for ALL of my shoes (no sneakers). I get decent Woodlore ones from Century 21 for like $12 each...
