I've been looking for a "Cousteau/life aquatic" style hat, but have had no luck. All the beanies i find seem to be much too large. Here is an idea of what i am looking for:

Please move this question to the relevant thread if I'm out of line here. I'm mostly wondering if anyone knows whether it's possible to tell if these shoes are genuine or fake by the pictures.
The shoes are currently being sold on Ebay for about $60.

I believe you may have mistaken this for a runner's forum. pg2g's icon and post match up beautifully.

Hehe, my bad then. I assumed that it was ok to ask questions about sneakers as well. Seing as they are considered sneakers, and not only runners shoes, at home. Sorry for the wrongful post then.

I'm looking for these Reebok sneakers. Let me know if you know what model they are, or even better, where to find them. Thanks!

I was wondering if I could get some advice on the Red Wings 875 boots.

How does sizing usually run on these? I'm a size 9 in Chucks and a 9.5 in New Balances and around a 9 in Clarks. What size should I order in the 875?




Also, are these boots the same color? I want the leather of my Red Wings to age like the ones in the first pic. Should I buy the ones from the second pic?

Anyone have experience with PF Flyers Number 5s? I didn't find much through search.
I would appreciate some comment on comfort, durability (though I do realize it is canvas), or anything else.

^^you should get a size 9 in 875s, but fitting depends alot of the width of your feet aswell, an 8,5 can be possible if you have wider feet. (im a 11,5 in chucks, but often wear a size 11 EE in RW, since I got wide feet, and sometimes need to get a larger shore size more for width than length). About ageing, yes. The second pic boots ages as the first ones. 875 leather is really nice...

more about 875's: appropriate for winter wear? i'm sorta wondering about the sole as well, if it wears out quickly and gets hella slippery on the snow and ice coated streets we're looking forward to another 5 months of...

Hi folks,

I just bought a bair of Magnanni Toldeo oxfords and realized that I am going to need an insert for the shoe to fit properly, as it's currently a little roomy. The last time I bought shoes, the sales person simply provided them to me at no cost. Do I need to get them from Magnanni, have them custom made, or can I just walk into any drug store and find something serviceable?

Thanks.

Are the terms oxford and balmoral interchangeable or is there a distinction? Same questions for blucher/derby.

I am aware that oxfords are more formal/dressier than bluchers. I am also aware that the more detailing a shoe has the less formal/dressier it is (i.e. a plain toe is dressier than a cap toe, a shoe without brouging is dressier than a shoe with brouging, etc). However, it seems that from what I have gathered here, an oxford is always dressier than a blucher. Is this correct? Is there a point where a blucher becomes dressier? For example, could a sleek plain toe blucher be as dressy or dressier than a full brouge oxford?

Lastly, is it ever appropriate to wear a blucher with a suit? If so, in what circumstances? Which type of blucher? Which type of suit?

Thanks in advance!

Though my knowledge is comparatively limited, recent research into the first question reveals that balmoral is a term interchangeable with oxford and blucher with derby. American companies misuse the terms frequently though. Also, I believe you mean "broguing" (like "brogue").

Oxfords are dressier but not to any substantial degree. The rules are not strict.

It is appropriate to wear a blucher with a suit in all circumstances; if you feel as though you need to be dressier, the onus is on you alone. Most people wouldn't notice, and if they did, they would not think you were insufficiently dressed. I wear brown bluchers with suits frequently.
