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.
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.
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.
A more side view (posted earlier in this thread):
Yes I think that looks quite familiar. It is a great combo! Thanks for posting!
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.
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.
