I picked it up on here (maybe on AAAC?). "Fit" has never sounded right to me, and I don't particularly like the word "outfit." I've heard "pile" used, too, but that never clicked for me.

 

I think you may have pushed me over the edge on picking up a pair of dark brown chelseas, too. I'm starting to think they're cover the whole range of formality I regularly wear.

 

Beware, the RM Williams are a bit more sturdy a last than you might want for more streamlined outfits. They work best with decidedly casual fabrics rather than anything approaching formality. If you want a smarter chelsea, say to wear with slim worsted suits or the like, I would recommend something sleek from EG or Lobb rather than RM Williams. The RM Williams are insanely durable, however. I've had this pair for 6-8 yrs and worn them in torrential rain, snow and hot weather and they power through it all. Superb value; just bear in mind that they're a more casual chelsea boot than some others on the market.

 

Re: etymology of rig - thanks for the explanation. I appreciate that fit can sound a bit awkward, but it feels more natural to me than rig. Each to their own, etc, etc.

You son of a....I had my eye on that tie for weeks. I was waiting for it to hit clearance and missed it. I'm glad a stylish bastard like yourself got it though. Awesome pick up.

Thanks. My Australian relatives swear by RM Williams, but even at their dressiest, they look like a dressed-up work boot (sort of the inverse of how countryish Lobb shoes still look like dress shoes). I'm considering a sleeker pair, because I'd like to dress them up a bit -- though they're likely to end up with moleskin and denim more often than anything else. Slightly off-topic, but how do you feel about dealer boots/brogued chelseas?

You really need to see "The Night Porter".

 

After that, you might regret the above comment...
