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.

 

 

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...

DC, the best fit and most comfortable you've ever looked in this thread.

Today's details.  No full shot because the trouser fit is so off it would have resulted in burned retinas.   They were medium grey but would look better turned to charcoal.

Bass weejuns on the feet to compliment the super trad scottie dog tie.  Double FIH too much?

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.

Back to work.

Thanks... the patches are stylistically wrong with a structured English shoulder and heavy navy flannel

I'm having thoughts about purchasing a grey flannel suit with 2 patch pockets and would very much appreciate your input and expertise. Other are of course also welcome with inputs.

I think flannel takes patch pockets, Pliny. It just makes the suit slightly more rustic and should be accesorized as such. Shoulder structure is just a matter of what's flattering on you smile.gif

This salmon colored tie is a winner. It provides the perfect foil to this smartly striped light gray suit. Molto bene!

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!

i guess i could pair it with puffed square, woolly tie and suede derbies, say, (expect a pic soon smile.gif ) but a navy patch flannel is still an oxymoron IMO. .. I just had a thing for patches when i commissioned it

Flannel is a versatile cloth IMO, depending on how you style the jacket it can be more or less rustic. Personally don't see it as an oxymoron smile.gif

 

It'd look great with either a fuzzy cashmere tie or madder, challis...
