What exactly is the difference between the Classic Hedi 30s and the Classic Wyatt 30s?

I've been thinking about getting a new pair of Chelseas but I read somewhere that the Hedis have a sleeker silhouette than the Wyatts. Is this true?

post #11717 of 15046

since kieran was talking about the devon boots, I looked at the pictures from the fw16 runway again

the more I look at them the more I feel that the devon derbys look so much better than the boots

not saying the boots aren't nice, I actually feel like I might get a pair of black suede or black velvet devon

but at the end, if theres only one thing I can get from the footwear collection of fw16 it'd probably be the devon derbys

The Derby is fantastic, and I really hope the online store buy it in either calf, lizard, or python, although as I mentioned above the idea of patent is growing on me. I've only ever had one patent shoe before and that was the DH pointy ankle boots from AW 2006, which even though they were quite ostentatious, were pretty easy to wear. Personally I love all of the footwear for this season including the Oxfords, the side zips, and the Chelseas.

Oxfords as in no pointy toes? I'm actually more down for that and hey guess what...I have the pointy ankle boots in patent leather too

I used to wear them a lot until I slowly became a minimalist....patent leather is just too loud

From mr porter:

 

1. Oxford
Formal lace-up shoes can be split into two sorts: Derbies and Oxfords. Both include a vamp – the front of the shoe attached to the quarters (the upper section that covers the sides and back), a low heel and often a Goodyear welt construction. With Oxfords, the “facing” (where the eyelets are located) is sewn under the vamp. A closed lace gives a sleeker appearance, so a decent pair of black plain-toe Oxfords is your go-to dress shoe (buy them in patent leather for extra sophistication. See: Mr Fred Astaire). Go with a cap toe and you’ll be at home in any boardroom. Originating in Scotland, Oxfords are sometimes called “Balmorals” after Balmoral Castle.

2. Derby
Derbies have open laces (the facing is open at the bottom), giving a more robust and versatile feel – the trusty Land Rover to the elegant Audi A8 Oxford. They come in colours ranging from Cognac and oxblood to other reds and browns (and we like to wear brown in town à la Mr Jarvis Cocker) and can be teamed with a suit, jeans or chinos. If you’re a little more traditional, adhere to their rustic roots and stick to trousers and a sports jacket. Sometimes called bluchers (especially in the US by New England preppies who grew up wearing a particular L.L.Bean model), there are subtle differences between the two, but this is best explained over a pint.

Here's the oxford:

 

 

And here's the Derby:

 

 

I personally like both, but a Derby is much easier to wear in a more casual way - an oxford with jeans and a t-shirt for example looks weird, but a derby can often look fine.

Yeah, I really regret not getting the classic two-hole patent derbies a few years ago. At the time, I figured I wouldn't wear them often enough. But I actually think they look pretty slick with jeans and shirts. Might have to grab a pair this season, if I can find them. How do your boots look after a few years of use? I hear patent gets really creased with wear.
post #11722 of 15046

They're long gone now, as I didn't put half soles on my shoes back then and I wear through leather soles very quickly at the front, especially on pointed shoes. I didn't wear them that often, but they looked pretty good even after wear. They did get pretty creased, but still looked fine. 

 

Yeah I'm imagining them with the raw black AW 15 mid waist jeans, a plain white Yves shirt, and a black blazer (or hopefully some kind of cropped black caban if I can get one).

post #11723 of 15046
Yeah, that's a classic look. I also think it would be the ideal choice to pair with silk shirts. Really play up that rakish vibe without losing the simplicity of the look.

i want the double monks in the womens collection they not making it for men??

post #11725 of 15046

The menswear double monks didn't sell all that fast, so I'm not sure they'll be back. It only seems to be the biggest sellers that return again and again. You might be lucky though.

Speaking of oxfords anyone seen the glitter ones from last season in person? Ordered a pair on deep discount and figured I could use them to mix it up with my formal wear. Hopefully the glitter doesn't shed though
post #11727 of 15046

It looks like Saks put a few items for the Fall/Winter season up.
