Very much so.

Oh god, you're using the un-heeled trees that destroy the fit of the heel.  With loafers you've just made them unwearable forever.  Not that bit loafers are great anyway.  Get rid of the metal and then they might be okay as house slippers.

Thanks for your response but those are not mine. I'm thinking of getting them that's why I was asking around for opinions

First dress shoe. Black plaintoe or captoe oxfords?

Cap toe.

I like the Loake Bayswater. I think Chelseas are very versatile and can look very sleek, though I've come to prefer Chukkas more personally. My pimlicos get more use honestly.

Is this "color" easy to wear ?

What are some good places to get decent quality flannel trousers for a big guy? I'm 6'3 and wear a size 38-40 in pants, depending on the fit.

I'm a personal fan of flecked fabrics like this when it comes to pants or casual jackets.  Easy to pair with things, and doesn't show dirt as easily because of the visual noise.  Not a good choice for more strict dress standards, and definitely wouldn't want an entire suit of it.  I have a pair of mottled light grey fresco pants with flecked red overcheck, and they're absolutely beautiful.  YMMV, though.

Price point? Luxire has some 90/10 wool/nylon heavyweight flannels made to your specifications for $100, and my pair have been an absolute workhorse for the past two winters.

Either is fine.

I'm thinking under $150. I'll make sure to check out Luxire. Any other suggestions?

If you want a Chelsea Boot check out the Herring Wilson and Carmina Chelsea boots.

http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?colourid=1464&brandid=6&catid=56&shoeid=2731&sizeid=&fitid=

 

Both should be under 500.

I have these boots and the crepe sole is beginning to wear down; I want to replace it with a double leather sole or a vibram sole. Which one do you guys think is better? I wear these boots year-round.

 

On a side-note: I know that the boots are supposedly stitched, but is it actually constructed in such a way that would allow for the soles to be replaced? I've called J Crew CS 3x about it, but they can't give a definitive "yes/no" answer.

Bump please

I've read good things about Howard Yount.
