or on a shirt... (almost) always MOP.... and prefer b/c it's NOT plastic.

are there socks a bit thinner than gold toe?

i have a pair of AE clifton 8.5D that just kill my feet (narrow side, near the vamp?) after a day of wear, or sooner.
a pair of AE leed 8.5D feel SO good in comparison.

and the major difference i noticed is the socks i wear.

need thinner socks. gladly take all recommendations

TIA

^It's not the socks. Leeds are 1 last and Cliftons are 8 last, the latter being roomier.

post #12709 of 33308
You mean the former being roomier? because i said the Cliftons have been a bit tight when i wore gold toe socks compared to when wearing same type of sock while with the Leeds on feet

FWIW, i think the socks do make a difference, as minimal it maybe. My feet are not hurting if I wear this thin pair of socks I have albeit OLD. Perhaps that is why it is so thin lol8[1].gif

Well then that's weird. The 8 last is fuller than 1.

post #12711 of 33308
Not sure then. Must be my flat feet and lack of arch, so it is wider than usual.

I'm 38 chest, 32 waist, 15 neck, and THIRTY-TWO (32) sleeves. Any recommendations on which off-the-rack shirts will fit best?

Hold them to your lips (I'm serious). MOP feels much colder than plastic.

Do you have to buy jeans with the gift cert? I am a Bonobos fan, but in my opinion the denim is their weakest product line.

Tying into the button commentary above,

what's a good source for horn buttons? I'm looking to replace some plastic buttons on a couple of SC's.

I just got some from Benno's Buttons that look pretty good.

Probably a question of shape rather than roominess. It's not the socks. Different lasts fit feet in different ways, I would guess that the #8 last is just wrong for you.

Pantarella makes thinner blends. Psycho Bunny makes thinner socks as well.

Pantherella makes a particularly thin sock. I believe they call them 'business socks' very fine gauge knit. I like them a lot for summer and for my most formal suit days.
