St. James III in a jet black would be sweet.

 

I don't like the deco black....i think it's too hard to wear with anything but like a mid-gray flannel.

Kent is highly underrated.

Any top down pics of those Wigmores? Is that burgundy with blue suede shaft?

 

They're vintage rioja and navy blue suede. An MTO I did with Thomas back when I lived in the London area. Not sure how good the picture is, but....

a picture from the side would help to see the complexity of the suede over the leather but it still looks nice from up top.

The croc up top is the only way to go.

There's just no pleasing you people....

Kidding: the top down shot was a request from someone else, I think to gauge the look of the last from that angle.

Yes I think that looks quite familiar. It is a great combo! Thanks for posting!

Any excuse to show them off!

Balmoral boots are.....let's say...."rare" here in Cape Town, so they do get noticed.....

well it was a great choice then.

@WhereNext

That looks like a seriously wide fitting! Is that F width?

Great combo. If I do a bal boot—not many excuses to rock them—Wigmore is high on the list.

Ha! I was thinking that, too, as I looked at that picture. It is an F fitting, but you have to keep in mind that I have small feet (those are 6.5 UK) so, in isolation, it makes them look a lot wider proportionally. They are only a tiny bit wider on the outside than my E fitting Foster & Sons balmoral boots which are pretty darn sleek.

 

As to wearing them, the reality is that (as many others have said) most people wouldn't really know you have them on as opposed to a pair of oxfords unless they're staring pretty hard at your ankles as you walk or you cross your legs while sitting in a meeting. Especially these that have a dark suede shaft on them; I have a pair that are dark brown calf with a mid brown suede shaft, and those are a bit more "showy". It also depends on how wide/long your trousers are cut: I get all mine with a slight break, but you see a lot more of the suede on those with an 8 inch opening than those pairs with a 9 inch opening.

Agreed, WhereNext's look really wide in that picture.

Picture quality is horrible because I was running out of daylight but could give people a comparison between widths and sizing up in length / width. Can you guys tell which ones are 6E / 6F / and 6.5E?


post #14023 of 21772
Hoves are the F width, boots are the 6.5?
post #14024 of 21772
I'm thinking the Hove (since i recall it being from Skaok) and the boot is a 6.5 UK. The rest are 6 F width i think...

Very nice.

 

Looks to me like the Wigmore and Hove are the 6.5.

 

Is it the St James and Grant in F?

 

I really like that blue color by the way.
