Sinatra + deco = Cooper, if I'm not mistaken. Cooper is a pretty popular makeup by deco standards (what with all the stingray and what-not), so worth looking out for IRL - about the best chance of seeing your 100% in the flesh.

Nice.  Which one do you have, Cooper or Bowlly?  Both?  The Bowlly is my G&G grail shoe.

It's all subjective, of course, but if I had to try to compare them I'd say a deco Burnham is 90% on target versus a TG73 95% and MH71 97% - in other words, they're all pretty damn close to ideal and are all stunning in pictures or on the shelf, but for me there's still a very small something that I have a hard time articulating that prevents me from falling completely head-over-heels in love when they're on my feet.

 

 

G . . . . this derision of the deco Burnham is completely uncalled for. They may be the most awesome version yet

Going to have to agree.  That Burnham is sleek as all hell.  Perfect for a chelsea.

I know. I've committed blasphemy and preached heresy. Satan made me say it.

On the flip side, as penance I have to buy more deco. To ... errr - teach me a lesson.

That's my kind of self-flagellation.
