I find that the uppingham is elegant enough to wear with suits (even though technically not proper) and certainly works well with odd jackets and trou. It seems that with Navy and Green the odd jacket/trou or even more casual attire is the sweet spot.
For the grainy textured shoes I presume you are thinking derby of some sort? And I second the suggestion that the hove be one of them.

The uppingham or uppingham 2?

Which do you suggest as younger?

Honestly people, what do you see in these? Is it the approval of your fathers and grandfathers you're seeking. These must be the most boring shoes ever, in black!!!!!!!!

I don't know that I would call either one to be 'younger' than the other.

But I do personally prefer the original version, as I find that the toe detail balances out the rear quarter detail to my eye.

Uppingham II feels a little bit too simple in the toe in contrast to the rear quarters to me.

Of course opinions may vary. biggrin.gif

Order one in green and one in navy! nod[1].gif

Aw c'mon. It's still a beautifully proportioned and executed shoe. Not my personal cuppa but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate it.

Thank you Nick.
They appear to be more rounded than all the TG73 that I've got. I think lighting plays a role in these images. They are gourgeous, like everything you folks turn out.

This is too easy. You folks need to have some sense of humor. That was a joke.
I know these are the holy grail of men's "sartorial splendor" for most peoeple.

Like many before you, you fell for my brank. While they are too boring for me, I understand that "pedestrian" styled shoes are treasured by many men, conservative, yet essential. Of all people, I own every imaginable version and I appreciate and respect everyone's choice and style.

I was trying get a rise out of our friends across the pond.

Congratz for trolling and wearing expensive shoes.

3. a pair in racing green
4. a pair in navy
We've been bouncing around a few ideas, now I just need to make my decisions.
Primarily I'm looking for the DG70 last, I own the TG73 and as beautiful as they are I'm just more of a rounded toe type of a guy I think.
Anyone have any suggestions?


I'm leaning towards going with:

1.
2. Mayfair in the dark brown grain, single dainite sole, dg70 last, gold buckles
3. Dorchester in racing green, dg70 last, oak bark sole.
4. Oakham in navy with black grain for the strap/buckle area, dg70 last, haf sole or a westbury or a gable.....what do you guys think?

I'm not still not sure what shoes to go with for #1.

I'm 25, work on wall st, and don't want any clunky "old man" shoes for the rain (i wear peal & co blucher's now which feel that way), any suggestions?
Astaire in black alpine grain, dainite sole, dg70? Do any sort of contrasting?

Thanks!!

It's a classic shoe that works with everything. Boring for peacockers maybe but I really do like them, St James is still nicer tho :D
