Daniel Craig my ass... I'll give you something to aspire to. Me rocking my new Casentino jacket I purchased at the trunk show in a restroom with the LBM tag still attached to the sleeve (which I have now removed). I am all about the class and sophistication.

My brown cashmere rollneck arrived today.

The good: size small fits me perfectly. I could use slightly longer sleeves (about an eighth of an inch), but that's a minor quibble.

The bad: customs decided to collect duty, so I paid $65 more than anticipated in taxes. :-( A good thing this was a small order.

Will rock the rollneck in sub-zero weather tomorrow.

Heschung boots arrived today.  Still wearing them.  Also, got the Vass boot, which I am reading now.  Feeling very #menswear.

Wore the Inis Meain marled brown crewneck this weekend for the first time. Received a lot of compliments and loved the feel of the fabric. Also probably my favorite of all the sweaters I've ever owned.

Heschung makes wonderful shoes. Comfortable and a good value. Surprised they aren't more popular on the forum. Maybe with NMWA they will gain greater exposure.

You're reading you're boots?

So based on the success of the first Trunk show, I'm guessing you'll have to do another. The natural location of course should be Cleveland. Oh sure, laugh if you want, but once you think about it the conclusion is natural. First off, it's close to everything. In seven hours of less (by car) we could get attract people from Chicago, Milwaukee, Columbus, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Buffalo, Philly, D.C., and NYC. That's like 2/3 of StyleForum right there. Second, everything is cheap: space, booze, parking, flights... Third, we could invite Ken from Krane to come down and do MTO badass outerwear. Naturally, this would lead to Greg and he sparking up a very mutually agreeable (and profitable) relationship.

I think that the problem with online shopping is that there are a lot of little things that are just impossible to translate onto a computer screen.  Hopefully, we'll get the holodeck soon.  For example:


I looked around the internet for a good picture of what, imo, really makes these boots stand out - the slate grey (so, a dark grey with strong blues in it) that really contrast subtly with the taupe suede. While I love shopping online, it's sometimes hard to show why one piece is so much nicer than another, superficially similar, pair.

 

The color is really hard to capture on film and looks best under natural light.  This picture here doesn't do any justice to the nap or the leather color, but you can somewhat see the color of the contrasting piping and the brogued semi bellows tongue:

In addition to all of those points about Heschung, they are also very comfortable and well made. They come from a tradition of walking/hiking shoes where comfort and function are a priority. To me their perspective is an ideal alternative to sneakers or heavier and more staid British shoes/boots.

Here is a picture of them - what I've tried to show here is the richness of the nap, and the bluein the contrasting leather and the laces that shows under natural light:

Wear them in health, uncle.

In all seriousness, however, they look very nice.
