post #7306 of 11906

So many beautiful boots to consider. All of the suggestions are fantastic, but currently the cheapest is the Rannoch. It is not my most favorite boot, and I am talking with C&J to see if they will come up with something as well. Decisions decisions....... Thank you all for the help also, like I said every suggestion here was a great one and I would be hard pressed to make a wrong decision. Being on a college campus means that the walkways are almost always plowed, so the snow is often not too high. That being said, if I'm going to invest in a pair of boots, they better be able to withstand a foot or more of snow and last me for at least ten years (resoles when necessary, of course)

@Monkeyface are the trousers roomy enough in the thigh? I never tried SP with fear the cut is too trim. For reference, my thighs are approaching 26" at widest point and usually wear a 34" trouser waist.

I have about 26" quads as well, and the trousers fit me well.

Perhaps I am uttering some kind of unspeakable SF heresy here, but if you really have to trudge through serious snow at any point, surely the best footwear ever made on this planet for such conditions is the Canadian "Sorel" boot?

 

OK, they are probably not as svelte as some of the other options listed here. But Walter Gropius would have approved of their style, I'm sure. Form, after all, should follow function. No?

A good practical suggestion.

 

I think we've done well with boots now?

 

Shifting gears, MF posted a picture of a pointed Liverano knit. I am wearing my lands end knit today (midnight, nice and crunchy) and have been enjoying the very open weave, seems very appropriate for summer. That gets me over my dislike of the square end (I know, it's a knit tie...).

 

Kent Wang has some nice pointed knits though they never go on sale (...I also hope Kent increases the size of his squares after our input in the WAYWRN thread).

 

Question: knit or a grossa grenadine that is unlined, untipped?

 

Both would be open, although the knit would have the more open weave.

Both. Knit is more casual, though. Eventually I'll have staple colors in both knit and grenadine.

How open are your unlined grenadines (e.g. can you see through them to your shirt at close distance?) Hober, yes? They knot ok?

Ok now fit issues, as promised a picture of my boglioli jacket that I can't decide if it's worth having altered or not. Pics in the spoiler to save you. From my ugly mug. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have unlined Hober and Panta, but they are both Fina weaves. You can see through them at the tip in the right light, as well as along the edges. They knot wonderfully of course. Still, I wear knits more than grenadines.

The pattern matching is excellent. However, that buttoning point looks like its at chest level.

Nice jacket.

Alter the sleeves and if the waist is not to your liking then nip the waist (I won't).

Buttoning point is fine for what it is, a casual jacket. Enjoy your Boglioli.

Thank you, for sure the jacket sleeves need about an inch up and I love this jacket so very much. I'm not sure about the waist, maybe I'll start with the sleeves and live with it for a few days.

Did y'all know that the standard width for Sam Hober grenadine was 3.75"?

I got an email from them and that's what they have on record.

So I measured what I had at home and it was 3.75". 

Never thought that they were that wide. It never looked that wide.

Aglose:

 

Hard to tell without a sense of the overall view (e.g. head to toe), but my thought is that you might try to wear it unbuttoned. The checks are large and to my eye, its sort of a sea of checks, if you get my drift (e.g. see Kulata's very nice brown check in WAYWRN which he wore unbuttoned).

 

I think if you unbutton it, then it will break that in a pleasing way. Plus, with it unbuttoned, the buttoning point issue (which is hard to judge from these pics) will not be an issue.

 

Extra thought which you didn't ask for: I'd go with a solids for now in this fit. E.g. a navy knit or grenadine. Pink is ok, but again, stay solid rather than stripes. Let the jacket speak for itself.

Don't worry about it. It's not the measurement per se, it's how it looks.

 

And yes, I read the Hober site. David takes 3.75 to be the classic width. Yours look fine. Enjoy.
