Spectator Porn - Page 37

post #541 of 736

I see what you mean.  But it's a matter of context.  Even as spectators go, anything-and-white is at the peacock en of the spectrum, but also the most traditional.

 

Let's face it. we're at the edge of the bell curve in this thread, because for all the people who say "cool" when they see our specs, we who actually wear them are in a small minority.  And we all have our "thing".  Some like bright colours, some like canvas, some like exotics or contrasting textures (some of those G&Gs above for instance)...and some like X-plus-white.

 

So, I guess my point is, whatever.  Which isn't much of a point.  Just, we all like weird stuff in this thread, so who likes which weird stuff, is kind of redundant! Me, I pretty much like all of them...

I plan to wear my spectators, white suede brogues, mesh and canvas pairs with everything. Summer is too short up here North anyway, soaking it up is essential.

I like 'em high contrast and low.

 

As far as I'm concerned, any shoe that's 2 colors is a spectator as long as it isn't a saddle shoe ( We used to call them Rah Rahs because every cheerleader wore them. )

I would think spectators work well with colours of roughly the same hue.

I'm definitely gonna be flamed real soon, but wth I'm bursting to give my 2 cents worth.

lotsa options...

^I've never seen that brogue medallion from Herring before. A quick glance had me mistake these as G&Gs. They look great.

Looks like one of the Barker shoes for Herring.

It's made by Cheaney, actually.  Barker make the "Cambridge" in the same colours, but of course Herring don't stock the Barker  Cambridge in blue, only the other colours.  The Cheaney/Herring Fencote also comes in grey and green....they're on my list, but i'm curious about fit so might have to go visit.

The sizing on the Fencotes in specific and Herrings in general is very generous. I wear an 8.5 in most US shoes, but take a 7 F (medium) in the Fencotes.

I will say that Herring offers some of the best service I've ever seen. Ordered on a Monday AM. Shoes were at my front door in Florida from the UK on Wednesday.

I've had a lot of stuff from Herring, really some of my favourite shoes.  I find the 175 last very long, and the 2003 true to size but a touch narrow and low - I have two pairs on the latter, a 9.5G in a derby and then had to size up to 10G for the oxford, but it's superbly comfortable.  The 9.5G in the 175 feels much bigger on an almost identical shoe, despite being half a size smaller (Henley vs Henley II).  I'm wondering where the 11028 fits in between them - is it as long as the 175?
