You are correct, that block heel is lower and less swept in than what many consider Cuban heels.  Though, in my defense, the actual boots most civilians consider to be "Cuban heels" vary all the way from outrageous witchy-toed zip boots to unremarkable standard Chelseas.  What all the high-heeled models seem to have in common is that they seem to be made of factory-reject Naugahyde scraps.

 

The upswept toe and toe-stitching on the Santa Fe makes me consider it a riff on a cowboy boot.  If I saw it with the trouser cuff over it, I'd call it a cowboy boot.  

 

My ideal may be a little off, but it's an ill-defined target to be shooting at.  Maybe it's better to say it is a well-made Cubanesque heeloid that would be great for that Blow-Up look, without looking like you get your plastic shoes from Ye Olde Goth Shoppe.

Some snaps.

Thanks always to everyone who takes the time and trouble to post pictures of themselves and to those who like my pictures.

Unfortunate changes in demographics have led to all sorts of horrid things being built all over town.  The Monument To Municipal Megalomania (which is a block from the actual border and puts the people of Shirley Place into No Man's Land)  is a recent example.

This morning I discovered what it's good for.  You can sit there and wave at people as they arrive in town.  Maybe if I have a long white beard when I am old, I can sit there and greet people as they arrive, like the old man with the long white beard who used to greet people as they arrived in Laguna Beach CA.  I also discovered that it's very hot sitting there when the temperature is over 90F.

Brooks Brothers cotton suit, ecru PPBD shirt, and BB#1 stripe tie, Jim Thompson pocket square, Gold Toe argyle socks, and Allen-Edmonds khaki grain McTavishes.......

Days of tweed have arrived.

Awesome UC. Beautiful. Who made the suit??
post #26783 of 44033
Claghorn, I'll pile on--that looks great.

I had a rare chance to dress up the other day. RL Black Label suit, Kent Wang shirt, Paul Stuart tie, RL square

Thanks Newc. Suit is made by WW Chan.

Very nice. You wear the suit, rather than the contrary. If that makes sense. I think if I had that suit, in that fabric, I would not look as effortlessly comfortable.

Hello, first WAYWRN post. Let me have it. 

 

Please excuse the rumpled linen as well as the drought/gopher plagued lawn.

I like it quite a lot, and there's never any need to excuse rumpled linen, but I think I would bring the pants up.

post #26788 of 44033

Agreed--the pants look to be both a bit low on your waist and a bit long in general, but the combination and the fit of your other items is very good for a first post.  Keep 'em coming!

post #26789 of 44033

Absolutely filthy @UrbanComposition. Excellent fit (duh), and love seeing the full tweed suit...hankie looks to be a gem as well!

post #26790 of 44033
@Koala-T, @heldentenor, thank you sirs. In retrospect I agree on the pants. Though I think they may just have sagged over the course of the morning.
