post #29971 of 33197

If I buy shoes in the UK, do I get the VAT refunded if I have a US passport? Or is there no VAT there. I know buying from meermin and carmina etc has this fee waived in the US but curious!


Side note: What are people's thought on this boot shape etc.

You'll have to ask for a VAT receeipt and get the refund at customs at the airrport.

what color/pattern tie would go well with a light blue, medium gingham shirt (something like --->http://s3.amazonaws.com/ratiostore-production/images/331-large-45c99a286448926e67094dd95b0cbc57ed6f925f.jpg?1402583555) and a solid grey suit?

I'd say pretty much anythin non-blue or -gray in either a solid or a large scale pattern.

I don't like wearing black and navy together in general, but if you insist on wearing a black tie, I would go with the black shoes and belt.

FYI, personal preference aside (I don't always like it either), black tie/navy suit is a classic combination.

Thanks for the help!

I just realized that I left a favorite pair of shoes in the car overnight (about 24 hrs) in sub freezing temperatures. Is this really bad? If so, any corrective measures?

Your shoes are fine. What, you think that if a pair of shoes is delivered via UPS, USPS, FedEx, etc., that they might not wind up spending considerable time in a non-climate controlled depot or other facility, or in the back of a truck, or on your front porch, in freezing weather? For that matter, I've been known to wear shoes while outside in freezing cold weather.

They're shoes, not baby chicks. (Yeah, I dig that episode of "I Love Lucy.") They're not as delicate as you might think.

Somehow I would think extreme heat would be much more damaging than extreme cold.

I hear your point about being in a ups warehouse or on my porch. Buy I wonder of they ever sit in freezing temps for that long a time, to the point where the leather is frozen solid. The most a package sits on my porch is 6-8 hours, not 24!
But I guess you're right, it's not the end of the world. I'll let them thaw before I wear them ...

Kewl. Thoughts on the boots?

 

They're goodyear welted if that makes a difference. Price is about 150 and I'm kinda considering it.

Mind posting the maker? For what it's worth I kinda like em. The styling might be a little clunky but I'd probably wear em.

They're cole haans. Some of their newer stuff is awful, but these are relatively nice.

 

They're more of a chinos/jeans kinda boot. I'm not sure how I feel about the perfs without the cap though...Rue la la has them on sale and I'd contemplated buying them a while ago and they're 100-150 cheaper now in my size.

post #29985 of 33197

Hmmm, I don't know about that one. I have had one pair of Cole Haans a while back and wasn't impressed with them even in my n00bery. On the other hand, it's possible that these are decent.
