I'm actually surprised MM doesn't get more coverage in SWD. There's a handful of things from his clothing line that I want, but can't find at any stockist; so availability might be the cause of this. I only have two pairs of his shoes, but they're some of the most comfortable and versatile shoes I own. Hopefully the MM clothing line will be picked up at more shops.

I agree. I like some of the button down shirts, especially the popovers which I can't seem to find anywhere.

I think the lack of caring in SW&D is that mcnairy is way overexposed. He's had a hundred different shoe collaborations. Even aspects of his style that I like, like brogues and the occasional camo piece, are way overdone. Neon and wayfarers are not for me. His "mcnasty" thing is just kind of sad. I like a few of the pieces above, but not the way they're brought together, generally.

+1, i don't know if it's just me but there's not sense of design in his pieces. It's just following whatever trends are currently out and making them slightly more outrageous... prints, camo, floral on top of camo, 8-pocket-cargos...

This, plus his markup on Sanders is quite large for such minimal differences. Not Thom Browne level but getting there. There's always a few pairs I consider getting each season, but rarely actually buy anything. Clothes wise I wouldn't get anything as similar trends are usually done by EG in a much cleaner way and most likely made better as well.

He seems very egotistical. I do like some of the shoes, but don't really understand the justification for price. +1 to the above comments about him.

Interesting Mcnairy/EG comparison.

I liked the McNairy popover shirts, as I mentioned earlier, but at $188 found them too expensive. I combed the internet to find that EG was literally one of the only brands offering a popover too, however, I wasn't fond of the detailing by EG and thought they overdid it.

As for price point, both McNairy and EG are offering popovers in the $180's and both I am pretty sure are using the same US manufacturer for this shirt, Individualized Shirts. I find the price a little ridiculous.

Yeah especially the "F*** OFF" stuff or any item he offers with text on it.

Can anybody comment on sizing? I'm an 8.5E in Allen Edmonds and a 8E in the Alden 403. Can I squeeze a wide foot into his navy suede chukkas?

I don't know for sure anymore, but I know at one point he was using a Brooks Brothers shirt factory in Garland, NC. I've seen some of his samples for sale there.

The shoes are made by Sanders. I'm a 10.5D in the 403, found the 9.5UK to be a good fit. Have wider feet as well

Both of the shirts I mentioned are made by Individualized Shirts in NJ. It is owned by the parent company of Gitman Bros.

$180 for popovers by Individualized isn't too far fetched. We've worked with Individualized Shirts in the past and those shirts don't come cheap, especially when you consider fabrication and measurement specifications. Of course both EG & MM put a little luxury tax on the items, but seeing how Individualized SS shirts generally sell for about $140, EG/MM prices don't seem so crazy to me. Still too rich for my blood, though lol.

There's a denim derby collab out with MM x Ark.

I like the aesthetic, but question the functionality... My SS12 navy suede brogues from MM are pretty heavy and I'm not sure they'll be worn much in the hot and humid days of summer. The Alden blue suede PTB's I've tried on are much lighter and I consider them a very good example of what a pair of summer shoe should be; light and breathable.
