I would never, ever,  wear a black plain toe cap Oxford with jeans. And I have not many sartorial rules.

Zapasman, despite what you and I feel about this, black oxfords are worn with jeans these days. Yes, it used to be the most formal shoe type...but most have done in the old rules. I used to be really strict for myself and others about this, but nowadays I just look away or try to think this: if X knows that shoe Y "should" be worn with some things only, but decides against it, I cannot chastice him. Still, if he doesn't know about "the rule"...

I wouldn't either normally but admittedly the combo looks good. Unless one is attending an event where certain decorum is expected and/or required a lot of the point of dressing well is to look good imho. Plus for all we know he might just have jeans on for the shot and don't intend to wear that combo.

Ditto. Although I suspect that I may abide by a few more rules.

Oh, I just put them on for the photo, didn't want to show them with sweatpants LOL. I don't wear them out like that, just didn't want you guys seeing my hairy legs or inappropiate bottoms.

Hi folks
Any thoughts on shoe trees for my Cheaney Harringtons - the Cheaney cedarwood are £65 whereas Herring equivalent is £35 and on amazon UK I could get some "good" quality adjustable ones for about £25 (currently half price).

I can't seem to find anything specific on here except that cedarwood is the best and not too large or they will stretch the shoes.

Currently enjoying the scent of new leather in the office!

Thanks for the information. I am interested to see that the beech wood options are more expensive yet I have read that cedar is preferable due to its odour eating (replacing?) properties and other shops have the pricing that way round.

Hi - cedar is great for its properties for shoes, but not all makers manufacture in cedar.

Styleforum opened my eyes to fine English made shoes and eversince expanding my modest collection. Very first pair of shoes was AS Wilson from NMWA. Over two years old but looks and feels better than ever. Thank you Styleforum.

Hi guys, great thread! I was wondering what brands/models I should be looking at if I'm interested in a more sleek/slim appearance? I noticed Alfred Sargent and Meermin have been mentioned in this respect, but was hoping for any elaboration. Budget is probably up to mid tier. Thanks so much!
