Killer, as always!!!!
DC, the best fit and most comfortable you've ever looked in this thread.
Very nice colours Spoo, it shows confidense. But I'm not happy with the jacket. I don't like the contrast buttons, and something is wrong in the neck and the sleeveheads. The fit is not that good there.
I noticed you prefere the tie very tight and high, showing a lot of collarband. Some men do, but to me that makes a messy impression.
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...
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?
Not a fan, personally. Perhaps I've seen too many cheap/bad examples, and that's coloured my perception of the style. But I feel's there's something mish-mashy about the style. Brogued lace-up boots, sure; can look fantastic. But brogued chelseas... eh, just not for me. I didn't realise "dealer boot" was the name for this style; I thought it was just another synonym for chelseas generally. Learn something new every day!
Anyone else would have been slammed here for this. lol
