My Heschung suede boots are awesome, but not a one shoe.

My various bucks and suede sneakers are what they are.

 

My one suede shoe would be my Vass wingtips.

My suede one shoe (out of 11) also happens to be wholecut.

I have those Vass and they would probably be my "one shoe" too.

Everyone - which would be the most practical addition to my wardrobe, the navy plaid Formosa or the grey flannel Formosa. Workplace is on the slighter more casual side of CBD (i.e. suit/tie every day, but freedom to go beyond charcoal/navy) Bear in mind this will be for average temperatures ranging from 50 - 80. I currently have:

Navy wool birdseye
Grey wool birdseye
Charcoal wool
Light blue wool/linen

Thanks!

Grey flannel is more versatile during the time period when you can wear the thing. If you're concerned about summer temperatures, wearing the blue plaid during the summer will suck less than wearing the grey flannel. Basically comes down to how important the summer months are to your decision IMO.

I definitely think that to be truly versatile, any suede "one shoe" has to be a wingtip oxford in a darker tone.

 

Here are mine. Oddly enough, this pair is from Canali.

 

 

 

But why stick to one pair when you can have two? This brown suede tanker boot with contrast stitching from Carmina perfectly complements the formality of the Canalis. Works for me...

Noodles thread is slow this morning. Vacations must alleviate picnic attacks.

+1 on dark suede chukkas being the one shoe. I volunteer Loake Pimlico.

 

I think the pick obviously depends on how you dress/where you work. A casual pair of boots just make more sense if you live in Cambridge for instance.

I commissioned a jacket from a local tailor. Will let you know how it will work out

If that's your belief you've been shown the wrong path! That along with what you're used too being what it is stirpot.gif

You got it, when you over for a pub crawl!

Hic!

There are loads of good breweries in London. I'm not (anymore) a big beer drinker myself, but I highly recommend the Bermondsey brewery mile. It's very close by where I live.

You have said some stupid things before, RTC, but this one takes the biscuit. If British beer is bad, you are doing it wrong. Real ale, my good man, is not served frosty...think the difference between white and red wine.
