Gentlemen, asking for your advice...

 

Has anyone of you experience how long it usually takes Leather Soul to answer to emails (to their info@... address)? I sent them a message about two days ago and haven't heard anything yet. By now I think my mail might have been marked as spam by their system as I put a link (to a pair of shoes on their website) in it, and some systems tend to filter out mails with links from unknown senders as spam. I am thinking now about sending the mail again without the link, but don't want to bother them with several inquiries about the same thing in case it's normal for them to take some time with the answer.

 

Thanks,

DBate

uncle,
They are coming from J. Crew. I got them with the 30% off so figured I wouldn't bother them with a second return. First pair only had one bent down speedhook though, should have stuck with that one!

I have not had great luck emailing leather soul. if you've got questions, you're better off calling.

Thanks, Uncle. Looking good in ravello yourself! Not sure what email you're referring to though...

I imagine LS gets quite a few emails.  Sometimes I get a reply right away.  Sometimes, not for a few days.  But it's never been anything urgent.  If you're trying to lock up a pair of shoes, definitely call.  However, LSBH is staffed mainly by Bryan and sometimes Joel is there (primarily to relieve Bryan I think).  If they have customers in the store, they may not answer the phone.

I can identify with both your and Uncle's position.  As Uncle mentioned, you see a lot of tassels with suits in the NY metro area, particularly from a certain demographic.  As you mentioned, tradition dictates balmores with suits, and that is what I would wear if I were going on a job interview, as it is considered more formal.  However, if I were comfortable in my position, and if it conformed to company culture, I would not hesitate to wear a loafer with suit, be it a Gucci horse bit, LHS, tassel or other.

 

FWIW, I've been told that the Balmores with suit rule is adhered to more closely in Europe, and that loafers with a suit is considered "very American".

 

I also understand what you mean when you say that you are not comfortable doing it personally.  There are many clothing combinations that are considered acceptable that I am personally not comfortable doing. (Red pants w. #8 for example)

I would be in if I didn't already own a pair of 404s - good luck, it sounds like a great makeup

Thanks for the info. I guessed that they might get quite a few mails, however since they explicitly put on their website to contact them via mail for stock inquiries and orders, I thought it might be the best way. Besides, I am living in Europe and the time difference is about 11 hrs at the moment, so a mail is much more convenient for me. Well, I will try to call them tomorrow, hoping that they ship internationally and still have a pair in my size left wink.gif. If not... well, I have two business trips coming up in February to LA and NYC, so there'll be enough opportunities to buy other pairs.

 

Thanks again,

DBate

I agree with Seven here. No slip-ons with a suit. Then again, my flat feet w/orthotics don't afford me the opportunity to enjoy any slip on shoes, so I guess its a moot point for me.

I see from today's postings that its a good day for Ravello. That being said, it is also a good day for her cousin, Miss Lady #4.

Love those #4's

Have you tried an E width in Aberdeen?

Does anybody here have a list of upcoming releases from Leather Soul?
