By the 'waxed ones' do you mean the ones on the Nettletons? Here was a side by side from another thread:



The round laces are Allen Edmonds

There's much better stuff on the market.
I'd be interested in where good laces can be reasonably sourced.

And pejsek sorry for the thread hijack.

You know, Alan, I don't really believe in the hijack concept--once we let them loose in the world threads have a life of their own.
For the record, I still really like the flat laces on Alan's shoe and think the color is just perfect. And I'm not budging. I did, however, enjoy your thoughts on laces, fritzl. I'm also curious about the dailyshoes.de forum. I've run across it before. Are the discussions good? Worth it for a non-native speaker to pick through?

Ok. My personal suggestion for your Oxford is a mid brown, waxed or not, round and not flat. e.g. like in the VASS catalogue.

But the most important thing is, that you feel good with your choice.

Alan, due to the fact that am located in Austria, it is difficult for me to give you advice. Probably bengal-stripe will be a better source.

What I can tell you. A few years ago I started buying laces whenever I saw some I liked. This is a proper method to prevent crisis.

Here are some of my shoes:

If you like one I appreciate a feedback.

Can I comment if I don't like one?

They are very handsome shoes, and quite striking. They would not be my own choice (which is more like what you can see above), but that does not prohibit me from admiring them.

For now, I will be keeping the laces as they are on the Polo C&Js, but who knows what the future holds.

I do appreciate your thoughts on it, and we'll have to rattle bengal-stripes cage for his ideas on sourcing laces. Seems like I recall The Foxx getting some at the Lobb store in NYC, but that's not a particularly practical option.

Thank's. Now, I think all is said and done about laces.

Am a non-native speaker(English) also. I use my school english and what i caught up, when been to the States and London.

...discussions good.?

As you can see on the structure of the dailyshoes forum: AAAC and SF are the role models for them.

The main difference for me is. The moderators on AAAC and SF are settled and have already found their place in life. Ergo they are "stronger". Also the hard core of the members consists of guys like this, which is not on DS.

I think, could be interesting to see a different point of view for the various brands, which are utmost the same. Lobb, EG, CJ etc. And if it is just improving your skills on the language, it is worth a visit once a while.

PS: Keep the grey laces in the Rondepierres, awesome. My size is 9.5 by the way
