Hi Gents,

 

I see many of you use the straight lacing on your shoes and boots. Personally I use cross lacing on all my shoes and boots except oxford shoes. I want to ask if that's simply personal preference or it has something to do with formality and other reasons?

I think it's all personal preference.  If someone was really concerned with the formality of my laces then I would tell them to find a hobby.

I remember his response like it was yesterday, he essentially said that he would rather sell to me at his cost because of my contributions to the forum, blah, blah, blah. About a month passes and he reaches out to me and asks me to increase my price because of some of the other offers he had received. I politely declined as I remember that it felt a little like I was being extorted. 

Not at all suggesting that you would do the same. Simply pointing out that good intentions are one thing but at the end of the day, there is nothing wrong with acting in one's best financial interest. My first choice will alwayes be to sell to a fellow SF'er, but not at the cost of accepting less for a product. Unless it's a friend or someone close, that simply doesn't make sense to me. 

Go piss on someone else's parade. I've had nothing but great experiences with other member.. Maybe it's your attitude..

This was my reasoning behind grail change. That and the fact that a list exists that I'm on for DC's version of the captoe.

post #94496 of 122416

Looking to purchase a pair of Indy 403 in brown chromexcel. How snug should they fit? I am about an 8 on the brannock scale but the indys in 7.5 felt a little too tight in the toe box. Size 8 felt more comfortable but I'm wondering if I'm supposed to take the discomfort for a few weeks to stretch and break in the boots until they feel like they're molded to my feet. Opinions? I really want a molded "felt like they were made for my feet" feel.

No, I genuinely didn't get your point. At all.

I am about to buy a pair of Alden Shell Cordovan Traditional Saddle Oxfords (994's) and before doing so just wanted to see if they are going to be too dressy for khakis or jeans. 

Too dressy for jeans/khakis, better for slacks/suits.  This is the sleekest of all Barrie-lasted offerings and with the flat 270 welt, closed oxford lacing, single leather sole, and monochromatic color scheme, best reserved for more formal attire IMO.

 

Oh, and welcome to the forum!
