post #15811 of 29426

I've just started to wear leather soled shoes on a regular basis, but am not sure what to do when the weather is less than perfect. I will be getting myself a set of Swims, but am not sure how anal I need to be about using them. Should I throw them on when the ground is wet even a little bit? Or is it okay to wear leather soled shoes when the ground is a bit wet? Any tips?

Can you afford to have your shoes resoled? Can you afford another pair? If so, it's only worth worrying about this so much. Leather soles will survive getting wet.

You can always get a pair with rubber soles for rainy weather.

does waterproofing the sole help?

Regarding lapel pins and boutonnières as seen on sportcoats from L.B.M. 1911, Lardini, Isaia and Tombolini. Keep or remove?

Aside from that question, can anyone point me to a thread that discusses fabrics?  What are the normally suggested fabrics for business casual shirts and slacks?

I'm currently contemplating grabbing a Uniqlo linen jacket for casual summer use, though I'm in debate of which color to get. What do you think, SF? Gray, beige, or off-white?

Ask your question there, I assure you that there is constant talk about AE seconds in this thread. 10 pages is like 2 - 3 days of posts on that particular thread.

Let me ask this way: if I a shoe is comfortable while standing up and feels tight (not painfull, but still enough to cause a blister initially)), while walking, can I safetly assume it will break in eventually?

What material (suede vs. boxcalf) have a greater chance to break in sucsessfully?

The shoes are breaking your feet in. I know, mind blown.

Also, snug has only 1 g.

Thx

I am a Canadian who wants to buy a pair of Alden Cordovan PTBs, and I can only get them through Brooks Brothers in Canada.   I was wondering if Alden will restore the BB shoes when the time comes for resoling?
