This should change.  Boots are the original shoes.  There is a reason that so many of the traditional companies are named "bootmakers", and also explaints expressions like "suited and booted."  In nothing else, trousers fall a lot more neatly over boots than over shoes, since they don't get caught on anything.

Oh, nice.  One of my favorite brands, and one of my favorite styles.

For a dressier style boot, but still not monocle-level dressy, the snuff suede Alfred Sargents are really top notch.

Yeah, I had a pair of their shoes, and I love them, but I bought the wrong size. Now that I know my size, boots are in the making.

Alfred Sargents are really an excellent boot.  I have a pair in the 7WK last, which are asskickers, but I have to admit that when we did a little photoshoot with a pair of the more dressy lasts and models, a couple of years ago, I was filled with a little bit of envy that I didn't wear extremely short trousers that would show them off.

I said this same thing a while back and Manton wrote back to me: Not since World War I.

I like the look of boots, but ironically I don't find them that practical. Basically, they are kind of annoying to pull on and off, and lace up and polish and such. At least the kind of boots that I wear, which are dressy.

Manton is just being peevish, because in 2013, you can get away with wearing pretty mich anything.  And even in conservative law firms, etc... there are very few really good.... anything.  

 

I have some boots that are really dressy too.  They are harder to pull on than shoes.  But it's an extra 10 seconds.  My time is not *that* tight.  And at airports, I actually sorta enjoy going through security in a leisurely fashion.  Makes me feel a little less like cattle.

I am obviously late getting involved here . .. but want to pull the trigger on some of the gorgeous shirts.

 

What is the SF discount code? Thanks in advance and look forward to supporting No Man Walks Alone.  Some of these knits and shirts look divine.
