well, many of them are i guess, but much of my SCs are pretty city and almost all of my shoes are.

and yes, i agree that i am better off with rounder lasts, i wish i liked them more than i do.

x-post from what i said in SWD

thank you, parker. mighty kind of you.

since you brought it up, this is an area i have struggled with for a long time. i know that my broader/larger build really calls for a rounder last like these marlows, but i have long hesitated for 2 reasons.

1. i simply like the look of more angular/aggressive dress shoes over that of more rounded ones.

2. i have a hard time envisioning a dressy outfit looking right with what i view as a more clunky shoe.

so, as to number 1, i just said to myself, suck it up and accept that you look better in shoes that you may not prefer. and as to number 2, i felt that with a more country look like i went with today, as opposed to a city look, that the rounded last really is actually better.

anyhow, sorry for the mini essay, but so is the story of my non pointy shoes, and i am pleased with the outcome.




and yeah, that was lulzy what teger said.

Have your feet amputated. It's what I did. Walking into a board meeting on ankle nubs commands respect.

This look needs brown suede shoes preferably chukkas.

I like it

the beard's a factor IMO too. I associate city with clean-shaven, smooth, shiny n cool blues, grays whites;  country with fuzzy browns, creams, reds, warmth.  It's not impossible to do city + beard but rustic/country/lots of hair is more natural i think.  aaanyways, tangent, but those Marlows or whatever look great Stitches

I hope the idiot doesn't read SF.  :uhoh:  Not the best way to find out you're being fired.

Loose and sloppy knot, oversized and bad-fitting shirt, and shops at Mens Warehouse? I certainly don't think he is a member here. Shirley not!

lol.

but srs tho, no jew points are needed to wear a yarmulke. they are a religious head covering, worn by orthodox jews, and by many non orthodox jews as well. even those who have no jew points.*


*jew points are fictional. they are not real. derek just make them up. but since they seem to be free, i will take them.

Thank you. I'v looked into their shop on Savile Row now and then, but coudn't find anything that fit me. I knew BC make for Turnbull, but not the other labels.
