Wow, why is the vamp so long of Pb's shoes? And why are they so incredibly wrinkled? Bad maintenance?

But pB is way too high up to ever be told those are ugly.

I've got three new black shoes on the way. Two are captoes.

No, it's good wear on the wrinkles. But it's the god awful short captoe that gives it some kind of larvae-penis mix look. 

 

If those shoes are pBs taste, I'm quite alright to ignoring any 'suggestions or critiques' he makes. Although he doesn't really make any, he just says everything sucks except what he has.

I don't know why you say that. I demonstrate often how I like things I don't wear myself. I don't own suede bucks, Norwegian split toes, or wingtip derbies, which I suggested above.

All Saint Crispins.

That's interesting - when I met you, you seemed to only be sporting two legs - where did you hide the third? (And do NOT tell me that your private parts are so large that they need to be shod - and not with captoes, from your statement above.)

Those shoes are over 8 years old and worn hard. Mostly cared for with saphir and lexol. All of my 100% saphir regimen shoes are cracking and ready for the dumpster. Go figure.

I don't know about that. None of my shoes are that wrinkled. Do you go clubbing in them or something?

Why do you think I wear suits and nice shoes? I have to make up somehow for the lack of large genitalia.

Clubbing? confused.gif I shovel snow in them. Does that count? Also, FWIW, I don't have lasted trees for them, just woodlores or something.

"Classic" or "Linea Maestro"?  I know they make some good shoes, and I've been down that road.  It's just if you read the Meermin thread lately, the mistakes seem to get more frequent, the delays longer, and the communication worse all the time.  I think if you want a painless transaction and a proper shoe on a nice last for under $200, Indi-Loakes and Indi-Barkers from an English-speaking webtailer, are a pretty good option.  I just saw some nice Grenson suede brogues (most Grensons are also made in India) for $100 in the Pediwear sale.  For $200, blue suede chukkas from Church's in Herring's sale.  And you know they're actually in stock when you pay for them.  If experimenting with new styles is the intention, I'd say that kind of thing was a pretty safe option.

Haha, I can picture you shoveling snow in black captoes and a navy suit while wearing some red mittens. Let me recommend you something then: black balmoral boots.

not sure what mine are actually.... :/ but their noticeably better made than my loakes. I like my loakes, but theyre pretty shitty.

I cant speak for anyone elses gripes...but i love mine. also, they offer much better lasts IMHO.
