I don't know what to tell you. This never happens to me. I have walked through snow and slush more than once wearing shell boots and never had a problem. Calf soaks through almost instantly, and gets easily stained from the salt they spread on the streets. Cordovan does not. At least, mine has not.

Marinella ties. To see what the fuss all about, I made a trip to BG to examine them in real life, they're very very nice don't get me wrong but there are number of equally nice makers like H&B which can be had for a fraction of cost 20 minutes downtown subway ride away. May be the bespoke ties are much nicer, but I don't see the point of bespoke ties unless you're 5'4 or under or over 6'4.

IMO, overall, Marinella has a higher taste level than any other maker. H&B are well made, and many of them are nice, but many are real clunkers. Marinella are almost uniformly nice, if somewhat dull (but I like dull ties).

Marinella also uses a great lining, a bit thinner and less spongy. And the shape is cut differently. Marinella's shape is that Italian "bottle" shape that Nicky also does. H&B -- like all English ties -- are cut more like a straight-sided triangle.

There is an impressive difference between those that post on clothing forums and those who read only. Those who post trending towards eclectic and sometimes anachronistic tastes.

I will, though. Panerai comes to mind, of course.

Followed by other watches whose functionality could be had from $50 quartz watches with more reliability and better quality.

That means all mechanical watches.

Let's add credibility to the list. Styleforum is too gullible.

Well, yes. I've nothing against an automatic; however, I do have something against paying ridiculous amounts of money for a mechanical watch when superior functionality and quality can be had for cheaper.

For everyone that rips on walmart clothing and holds H & M clothes on a pedestal

Fact: H & M production facilities also produce the identical shirts for the wal mart "George" line
