As promised, a self portrait wearing some of the new clobber
Tie: New HC plum grenadine
PS: New HC Blue printed silk
Not seen: Loake 1880 Black oxfords (New Meermins have been stuck in Barcelona for 1 week....)
Love that tie and handkerchief!
Is CW going to be used for shirts and HC going to be used for accessories?
Just returned from a trip OS which included a stopover at KL on Saturday. Spent an hour or two at P.Lal. Quite an amazing shop. Bought two pairs, some nice Cheaney monkstraps in chestnut calf and some C&J Connaughts, also in chestnut calf. It's a shame that C&J are no longer supplying P.Lal, but probably just as well for my wallet's sake.
Now, something I learned a little too late on this trip is something called Dynamic Currency Conversion, which is important essential to know about when using your credit card OS. I hadn't come across it before, but it sucks, and you should avoid it if you can. I don't know how you do this, I just assume you tell the merchant not to use it. I'd be interested to hear of anyone else's experience of this when shopping overseas.
Anyway, pics tomorrow.
LOOK OUT! my meermin MTO arrived. look amazing. Id say the Olfe last is perfect for my foot (hrio slightly wide) and fits much like my C&J belgrave 337 last (albeit the toe roll is a tad narrower, the actual fit is perfect). Im very happy. OK time to plan a pair of 3 eyelet suede bluchers next on this last:)
