You've seen the pictures. It is okay, but nothing special. If you are going to do it, you may as well get that 'wow factor'.

On the off chance that someone needs some slippers, I have a NIB pair of LL Bean Handsewn Flannel Lined mocs, size 11, will let them go for $20 + shipping. Were about $65 shipped I think.

They're perfect house shoes for the Aus climate, just too wide for me.

Significantly cheaper than a Fox umbrella and, from what I have read, the quality is up there.
Shipping from KW is pretty cheap too.

 

Thanks, lachyzee - much appreciated!

Some of us can get away with it

Romps camo mocs just reminded me of a pair I was looking at at Zara last weekend, which reminds me how I find it really difficult to want to pay more than $100 for drivers. I pretty much scoff at how much they ask for a pair of Tods... What gives?

big difference in quality between our driving shoes and Zara. Just the same as there is a huge difference in shoe quality between Kmart and John Lobb.

 

Comes to the skill (hand made, hand stitched in Italy) vs factory made in China

The materials (we only use the finest suedes and full leather inner vs plastic/vinyl/other

The finish etc

 

Either way happy to announce that for those of you who appreciate the value in our driving loafers that www.andytom.com is now live.

 

Has a full range of ladies and mens plain-coloured suede driving shoes all at $199 with free Australian delivery. The ones with Laces have the option for personalisation with your initials if so desired. Popular sizing is selling out but we will do another order in a new range of colours next month.

 

Cheers,

Rob

Great looking loafers Rob. How much life do you think you'd get out of those soles? Personally I just can't see them lasting long enough to justify the high quality workmanship and materials.

Hey guys, hope you're all well!

Just picked up a navy studio italia suit, and I'm having the trousers taken up a little, would a half inch break be best? Similarly, I have what could be termed chicken legs, although I prefer the term lithe. Would it be worthwhile to have the legs narrowed so I'm not swimming in them?

Also I'll be wearing it with a white shirt (very adventurous I know) and because of my complexion was going to go with a deep red (jewel I suppose) tie and a pocket square. Would a white pocket square be best?

Cheers

I reckon you guys are being a bit unfair. I'd put money on the soles on Rob's driving shoes lasting longer than the leather soles of another shoe when worn daily without a topy. I think they look fantastic and if I have to pay a little more to support an Aussie, so be it.

 

If some of Andy Tom's shoes were made in Australia I'd jump on them in an instant at that price.

You reckon? I feel like heel wear would be pretty severe and I don't think I'm being unfair, that's why I asked Rob for a comment.

So does one actually drive in these shoes or what? Do people even "go for a drive" anymore?

Well the original car shoe has been around for 50+ years and are still made and bought at twice the price of our shoes today. Ive got Tod's that are 3-4years old and im not at the end of the stubs but I dont do marathons in them either. 

 

Everyone wears shoes differently. My oxfords always need steel tips as I roll the front of my shoe as an example. Perhaps you have experience in wearing out the heels of your shoes in which case my advice would be to either a) see a podiatrist or b) buy some orthopedic shoes.

At the risk of sounding like a tosser, I have a couple of pairs and I do occasionally wear them when I go for a drive in my MX-5.

I don't deliberately choose to wear them when driving, though, as I'm just as likely to grab a pair of sandshoes or to even drive barefoot and to put on a pair of shoes when I arrive!
