I dress up and down, almost at will. smile.gif

Thanks Mimo. The burnishing is much less visible IRL, especially on the pair in my size, not artificial at all. They are alas not cheap. But really lovely. Well, at least to me.

I've almost bought a pair of pebble grain boots, then decided not to. I don't know, they are fine but I kind of just prefer suede or normal calf, or one day shell.

These will be coming this fall.
Black shell boots also check, plus dark oak and taupe suedes. So a pebble grain would fill a gap.
(is what I'm telling myself...)

How often do people actually wear full boots? Even though they are nice, I feel like a Chukka is just fine like 90% of the time. They are such a pain to put on or take off =P

You of all people complain about making sacrifices for the sake of style. biggrin.gif

And on the topic of SOs having a say or not in this. Mine just ticked me off, so I'm out for revenge. ;p

I'm looking for a slim, modern-looking briefcase (more on the casual side so that it will look good on a shoulder strap). Thoughts/preferences on these?

Not sure how much the ones you posted cost, but I just got a pair of Holman boots (below) from J. Fitzpatrick (AV) and really like them. The sole is rubber but a "city" rubber sole as opposed to Dainite. I'm still breaking them in and waiting to wear them out (it's summer here in Cape Town). Anyway, they look very similar in design and I really like Justin's shoes, so they might be an alternative. The Holman's come in a slightly lighter shade, but I did a coat of dark brown cream polish and they turned out roughly like the ones you posted (maybe a bit "richer").

@WhereNext

Those are very sweet. And close, you're right. I will have a look.

I wear them almost every day in the Winter...so 4 months out of the year.

Nice boot collection being started.  If you haven't found the Boot thread already, check it out for inspiration.

Pebble grain is a must for Seoul given it's weather. I think @unipair guy has mentioned that they are his most worn shoe for winters. Great for rain as well.

Thank you Gents. smile.gif
I shall pay the boots' thread a visit, ep.
And sold on the pebble grains, Clags.

Unipair and Skoak is where it started to take flight in/with the upper class.
Taking advantage of the strong dollar and in before the price increase.
