You can get the original desert boot from Clark's. It's a solid and well constructed.

I had those same Clarks DB color but they are messed up now and I'm looking for something more sleek. Where can I find Loakes in that price range?

well you have a few options since this isn't (or rather shouldn't be) formal. To begin, a white shirt with a blue suit always looks classic. Additionally, consider the opposite, more rakish black shirt. After that really the sky is the limit, a lighter blue for a color blocked look. Any complimentary tone, such as a brown (careful could look embarrassingly 70s). Corresponding tie combos in order of preference, white with red, then lighter shade of blue, then repp. Black none, pop open a button or two and go out like a badass. I could go on but the real answer is to not wear a tie unless you must. A blue shawl collar suit is a party piece and not really office appropriate and should be treated accordingly: casually.

Quick Question: I just bought a Navy Baumler suit in Toronto for $700. This is the only suit I have in Canada. I realize it's fused but still, any comment on the label that I can find is always positive regarding fabric, construction, and durability (and as I'm a contractor this suit will not be getting worn very often at all). So the question is, is $700 for a Baumler a solid purchase, a terrible mistake, or, most likely, ... no big deal either way?

Look harder. smile.gif

Seriously, how about the one pictured below, from Brooks Bros.? It's currently on sale for half price ($64, instead of $128), if you wear a large. (It's item number Item# MS00259.) Brooks has always carried a few GTH items - pants, jackets, and the occasional sweater.

Wallet question - I always jam 2 credit cards into each slot even though they are meant for 1 card per slot.  Am I killing my wallet by over-stretching it?  

 

ps - I am not overstretching the cash section unfortunately! smile.gif

Do not wear a black shirt

Maybe not killing it, but possibly causing the slots to become irreversibly larger.

No. A credit card is roughly 30 thousandths of an inch thick (0.030"). That's comfortably under a millimeter, in metric speak. Around (I'm doing the math in my head here, which is truly dangerous...) 0.85 millimeters.

Wallets are not designed and built to such tight tolerances, nor constructed of such unforgiving materials, that making a slot accommodate an additional 850 microns of card thickness will ruin it. Particularly as most quality wallets are made largely of supple leather, which is inherently a bit... "stretchy" (probably not the precise material science term), and not as dimensionally stable as the platinum/iridium bar by which the meter used to be defined.

Why do you need so many credit cards? Why not try slimming down your wallet which will also slim down the bulge in your pocket?

Driving Licence, ATM card, insurance card, AAA card .... That's all I need to carry on a daily basis.
