post #18496 of 34870

My Salinger Double Monks are on their way!  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Delayed delivery due to the weather. musicboohoo[1].gif

 

I've heard there's sizing issues. If my foot measures exactly US 11.5 after I've been standing on it all day, will this fit? (I ordered a US 11.5) Unfortunately I'm new to 'good shoes' and I don't have many other shoes or lasts to compare the Inca to.

 

Is there any timeline on when these (below) will be back in stock in 11.5? The Austerity Brogue is pretty kick-ass.

Did not think I would see David Starsky today, but of course I'm glad I did.

On to the contest:

Entry 1, 1993: Fishing hat, leather necklace, tie dye. I wore this hat everywhere; I have no idea how women ever talked to me.



2012: Pindot shirt and River Chinos at a dance recital.



Entry 2, circa 2003: Eddie Bauer on an, ahem, portlier gentleman.



2012: Shawl Cardigan from last year with gingham & moleskin.



Entry 3, circa 2007: This is just embarrassing. Those are jorts.



Tonight: Camel Hair & Japanese Woodblock. I am now reconsidering the pocket square.

Those aren't Walts, though, so those with specific experience may be able to comment. The Walts that I have (in 31 and 32) fit me pretty well.

Thanks!! For some reasons, the Walt trousers don't come with size 31.

I jumped on them when I saw them on sale as part of the site change.

Okay the transition from that Ralph Wiggum pic to the Shawl Cardigan guy CANNOT be the same person. Congrats man! If thats really you in both pics (im kidding, i know its you), bravo on your transition, both stylistically and health-wise. You've done a great service to your children and the general public (by trashbagging those JORTS!) 

 

Seriously, that entry has to be a winner.

Holy moly! Competition got fierce.

Also, got the linen trousers today! They feel like the Mandarin and red ones I got from last year.

What?! My shipment hasn't even left NYC and I'm all the way in Australia.

 

Mad jealous.

I'm not really playing to win here, but I enjoy the contest so I thought I'd contribute. The first is me around 2005, I think. The second is from the other day (Epaulet SC and trousers). Please admire my belt in the first picture. And the visible tee. I can reassure you that I have since cut my hair.

This contest rules. I'm hitting my folks house this weekend where all of my pics are (yea, I'm old enough to have none of my "before" pics digitized)...

Loving the combo in your second pic, Simplicio. What are the details on the jacket and trousers?

SC is the Berberis camel gun check. Trousers are the medium grey flannels (Rudy).

In case you were interested, the shirt and chinos in the first pic could probably be found at Banana Republic. Or even Express for Men. But I've tried to purge my memory of these details.

Dude, I had to scan my pictures too and I was born in '85! We used films back a decade ago. Technology has really evolved aggressively in the last 10 years.

When is the deadline for the contest? I don't recall reading that part...just remember about the cut off date for the before pictures being 16 years old or newer or so.

I was under the impression that final entries are this coming friday, and that original intention was to keep photos in the early 2000's range (not that I don't enjoy seeing these early 90's pics, just might be a bit far removed), or at around 16 years old minimum.

Did some more digging and found another old pic, so here's my entry #2 in the contest:

BEFORE - the sad thing is this pic wasn't taken all that long ago (I think this is from 2007) and I totally thought I was such a baller (this was my only suit at the time):

suit bought from Boscov's
shirt and tie (I think) are Charles Tyrwhitt - check out the striped suit, striped shirt, and striped tie combo!
shoes are some sweet square toed Kenneth Coles



AFTER - pic taken probably 5 years after the before pic

Epaulet Rudy Cramerton Cloth
Epaulet Brown CXL belt
Alden Indy 403
