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!
You've come to the right place, I think. . But one man's sleek is another man's gunboat. For example, I don't particularly find Alfred Sargent to carry shoes that fit my personal definition of "sleek" - but others would find my taste of "sleek" too extreme, bordering on "pointy".
Can you post any pics that would give people an idea of what looks sleek to you (toe shape and welt size, particularly)? It would help to establish a reference point!
