As much as I would like a pair of those laced drivers. I'm still finding it hard to justify paying more than 100 bucks for a pair.

I would really like to grab a pair of those in dark burgundy/red for 100 bucks though.

Yeah those Herring ones look good. Can't decide if I prefer these: http://www.herringshoes.cxo.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=6&shoeid=3525

Guys,

I did not want to put these up on B&S because I think it would be a waste of time.

These two pairs of shoes can be yours for $20 a pair. Local pick up in Melbourne CBD. Interstate buyers please PM me.

Size 42, suede chukka boots from Aquila (both pairs are Made in Italy). One pair is chocolate brown, the other is taupe. They're probably some of the nicest things to come out of Aquila, suede upper, leather sole, partially leather lined. I got them in 2009. They fit like a UK 8.5-9. Only the taupe pair will come with waxed taupe laces. The chocolate brown does not come with laces.

If you want them, PM me, otherwise they go to an op shop.

Navy. Aldi. Indentical to the ones TobaisJ posted. Too cheap for anything else.

I have a pair of Sebago Docksides. Sperry invented the boat shoe with the Topsider. When I bought mine, I wanted to get Sperry, but couldn't find the amaretto colour in my size in Melbourne and I needed them that day as I was travelling. I ended up getting Sebago's instead. Some people are fiercely loyal to one particular brand. I can't say I'm one of them.

post #17278 of 58031
gents, while we're on the topic of boat shoes are loafers, does anyone have a recommendation for a tan leather penny or tassel loafer?

thanks

Missed out on the C&Js, but did manage to snag some Mexican silver links today for $20.

Re: Navy suede loafers - I'm not sure who makes them, but Charles Tyrwhitt has some navy suede tassel loafers on sale at present that could be worth checking out. I think that the sale price was under AUD$200.

Re: Driving shoes - DJ's house brand, Milana, had some very decent suede driving mocs in store last summer. I don't know if they still have them, but they came in a few colours, including a light brown and navy, and we're well-priced.

Re: Boat shoes. I've got a navy pair and a green pair and I virtually live in them on weekends in summer. Even the good brands are affordable and they are a great casual shoe, particularly in something other than basic brown.
