Haha, you have so many nice shoes - though, I would love to half half as many.

Flights are booked. P Lal here I come. Size 9UK, watch out!

In other news, my local Salvo's wants $59 for a 60/40 poly/wool 4x1 DB suit from "Peter Shearer". Oh, the pants also have no zip.

  • Brown chestnut semi-brogue oxford
  • Brown tobacco suede semi-brogue oxford
  • Dark brown
     full brogue oxford
  • Dark brown
     wholecut oxford with medallion toe cap
  • Brown chestnut single monk
  • Brown chestnut pebble grain wingtip brogue derby
  • Burgundy cordovan long wing
  • Dark brown
     penny loafer
  • Brown cordovan penny loafer (on the way)
  • Brown expresso suede chukka boots
  • Dark brown
     chelsea boots
  • Black chelsea boots
  • Brown expresso suede double monk
  • Brown calf double monk

I get excited about what pair I'm going to wear the next day smile.gif

We'll see how it goes but as I wrote, this feels different. Also, there's no place in my shoe rack ...

Get used to it. You have become a shoe tragic and all that entails but get back to me when you have 40 pairs....

Not going to happen. Shoes are done and now it's time to move on. I want a shawl collared cardigan now and a wool challis tie.

 

On a side note, I'm *really* enjoying these Florsheim Imperial longwings!!

in black as my first proper shoe does anyone have any experience with either of them, or any preference?

Has anybody seen the new swing last in person? Looks like a lot sleeker than the capital last.

Would you be interested in a pair of shoes by Dimitri Bottier for Crockett & Jones? Only $4500

Has anyone here had anything made by Sam Disano lately? Im in the market for a new suit and am torn between Sam and PJohnson. Any help would be much appreciated.

I love Florsheim longwings design. Are they Kenmore or the aussie Stamford versions ?

Have you met Sam Diasrno? Tbh I wouldn't really trust that he could pull it off, plus when I chatted to him last year he was so exy, 4500 for a suit in English wool, cheaper for Chinese. Zink is better value but still around $2500.

I was emailing with Gordon Yao but decided to go with p Johnson instead.

Prices were on par w p Johnson, but it's kind of the same given that Yao only does one fitting.

Not surprised with the 2k for lesser suit, the material is at least $200 per metre, and 4-5m is needed for a suit.
