This is crying out for pics I know!

I see a kind of dissonance between your name and your quandry.

Sounds insane to me, but if you're desperate, the hair of the dog method they talk about seems wild. They have a few more sane sounding options in the link.

Look like the iron rangers at the bottom.

I have never really paid much attention to the number of eyelets on my shoes but based upon how the AEs in the pic look and how much space sits between opposite eyelets, for aesthetic reasons, I would probably keep them the way they are.

Sorry, the pics are Manton's shoes and therefore not AEs. I was using his feet for illustrative purposes only.

Here are the AEs to which I was referring.



I later answered my own question by trying both methods. The crisscross method won out due to the aforementioned impressions left by the laces. The bar lacing just didn't look right.

I'll also just add that ay source for purchasing online would be useful...

Thanks!

They're boots. Derby boots I think. They make me think of those: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/49464...ink&qs=3000086

Is there a thread that features SF member's closets? I'm trying to re-organize my closet and want some ideas.

IMO, bar lacing (or some variant thereof) looks much better on balmorals than on bluchers such as the AEs you posted.

There was one a while back. I assume you tried the search function.

I am looking for a pair of shoes that would match a suit like this
http://cgi.ebay.com/2700-NEW-Etro-Na...item336677a4cb

I am thinking allen edmond but I want to hear some other opinons. Also, is wearing vintage shoes a dumb thing to do? or is that still stylish.

Feel free to PM me too!

Thanks!

I'd try Ebay since they pop up every so often.

Hi,
I'd like some help regarding sizing and fit for these LL Bean bluchers I wanna get online. Not familiar with American sizes. I'm a EU 41.5 / 42 depending on the fit of the shoe, generally a 42. What would be the US equivalent? I also have wide feet. I've been told that general US sizes run a bit wide, should I chance the wider fit or go safe with the medium?

Thanks

What kind of fabric is this? The tag (it's a blazer) says 100% wool, but I don't recognize the weave.



I apologize in advance if this is obvious to some, but I'm still learning about cloth.

That photo is a little blurry, but it kinda' looks like hopsack which is a very common fabric for blazers.
