This boot from Skoak may be exactly what you are looking for.  $441 plus shipping.  http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/products/carmina-jumper-boot

I know I'm late to the boot party, but there is also this from Howard Yount:


I have a pair, and I think TweedyP has a pair. Great deal on sale at $299. Odd sizing though. They are all a half size large for whatever reason.

I have a question regarding suiting advice for my body type. I live in Australia, which means I have to take shipping into consideration as well, and am set to graduate next year from University. I have accepted a role in finance, but in a casual workplace. I am 6ft and weight 90kg (200 lb), with broad shoulders and I believe a jacket size of 43/10. This makes ready to wear difficult. I have one MTM suit, which I'm not entirely happy with, and one sportcoat, which I am fairly happy with, but neither of the MTM makers in my price range locally are able to produce natural shoulders, which I understand would be a perfect match for my frame. My question is, whilst I build my suiting/sportcoat collection, should I begin with altering RTW suits, or go for MTM at a higher price? Further, will a very soft shoulder still look good on me?

 

I've looked around a bit, and like the look of MaCo suits , or perhaps Suitsupply (no idea if they will fit however) for RTW, as they both offer a natural shoulder and are roughly $650. For MTM, I quite like the idea of Kent Wang, which will run more expensive (I'll assume $900 all up), or P Johnson in Australia - probably $1300-1500. I would greatly prefer to get clothes initially that I will like in a few years time, as opposed to clothes that fill my need now, and I will lose my taste for. Advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Get RTW before MTM. There are exceptions, but generally jumping right to MTM or bespoke ends poorly for all involved. From what I understand, you can get SS in Australia without paying customs, and they offer free returns. I'd experiment there.

 

As far as what you'll like in a few years: the simpler the better. Solid navy. Solid gray. Simple, small scale patterns would probably fit the bill as well. Some that you probably won't regret purchasing down the line:

I think it was JR or L2BR maybe who kopped those HY boots a while ago though there was a quality control issue of some sort (@jungleroller and @luv2breformed). They look nice and for that price point, and perhaps worth a go. Jamison makes good pants for sure...sale on some of those right now.

post #9907 of 37396
Not me.
post #9908 of 37396
Clags, I swore I looked at those boots and they only had a size 9. I checked on my phone and he has most sizes. I'm ordering if that's the case...

EDIT: just reloaded and only size 9. Shit.

I think it was L2B then. He had ordered the other version, not a boot, but received the boot. Ended up keeping them.

I have some Wolverine 1000 Miles in CXL. Like DWF, I consider the material suitable for casual/workwear type fits.

Thanks for the detailed, Claghorn, its very helpful. Free returns mean it would be silly to not try these out, but the lapels that to my eye err on the side of skinny do worry me a little, and were what interested me in some of the MaCo alternatives that eHaberdasher stocks. Any other good alternatives? Something slim, with a very soft, if not natural, construction.

Awesome coat, Stitchy.  You guys got one helluva deal on those.
