I guess I'll have to try that out. I need an Athletic fit of sorts because I'm very thin in the waist but broad shoulders and big arms from lifting, so that is usually a problem. Where did you go for the coats?

Yea I keep some shoes in their boxes if they are in my armoire where I have some extra space, but I actually have added a bunch of shelves under by shirts and pants in my normal closet and stacked up a few levels so I can keep many pairs there. I think that you normally can have 3.5-4 pairs on each shelf, but I only get 3 due to my size, but they can be a nice inexpensive investment to help maximize storage for shoes.

Coat was through work I took it to my tailor & had them do adjustments & made it slim fit.

this is one of the all time great boots! It is so elegant being a GG Thorpe yet the texture and color of the Mountain Ram just takes it to a rustic and tough yet classy level.

post #17111 of 23674

There's a number of things that I like about these boots. The fact that I've been meaning to get a split toe boot for one, the fact that the apron is hand

sewn is two, they are in grain is always a plus, and the fact that this Last works so well is another.

Anyone having trouble with the mobile site? I get a see-through black box on the top of the screen that appears when I touch the screen. Doesn't allow me to view any specific link on the homepage.

Did anyone say Singapore?

Come on man, hardly anything is "made" here. Everyone knows we import almost everything. As for cloths, we struggle to buy them as well.

How about peccary for texture? I have a pair of deerskin Chelsea boots that I posted on some their threads a while back. It is nice but I haven't tried peccary before and it should look really nice for one like this.

 

I certainly do not mind peccary at all. Unfortunately I seem to have lost my third man. Hopefully this GMTO can still work out.

The main reason why I'd been considering deerkin / peccary was mainly to have some textural contrast in this makeup. And besides, if it's good enough for EB, it's good enough for me.
