Us legal people should all hit each other up on LinkedIn.  Mine is (strangely enough):

My feet are on the border of medium and wide with an overall more blunt shape than tapered (large toe doesn't extend that far beyond the little toe compared to some people) and a slightly narrower heel. My shoe size varies between 9.5 and 10 depending on the shoe. I wear the Comfort Craftsman (black and chestnut) boots in a size 10 and the Carmina Inca and Rain lasts in a 9.5. Funnily enough, the black pair of RMs feel more snug all round my feet compared to the chestnut so there's some variation even within the same model.

The Inca and Rain lasts feel very very similar to my feet (I have a cordovan wholecut on the Rain and calf doublemonks on the Inca). The Rain perhaps feels a touch more snug but nothing particularly noticable. Strangely enough, the Forest last also feels very similar to the Inca and Rain. Definitely not a very noticeable width change.

To summarise, the RMs, Rain and Inca last all feel similarly wide with the RMs being a touch shorter and narrower - certainly nothing that would cause any discomfort to me. I haven't got any experience with the Soller last.

Strangely enough, today I'm wearing a pair of suede loafer on the Simpson in a UK9.5 as well. I would ordinarily go up half a size in this last for anything other than suede as it's the narrowest of the Carmina shoes I own but the suede will stretch. Still, they feel tightest around the width and slightly loose around the heel.

Hope this helps. Let me know if there's anything specific I can help you with.

thanks appreciate the advice

Good news, got a link to the source of this? I've got some trousers that lost a rivet button on the fly that I've been meaning to get fixed.

What's the difference between Irish and Italian linen? Is Irish just heavier or are the major difference? Looking at getting a linen MTM suit and can't decide on which fabric swatches I want to test.

I always love the look of these caramel/tan shades of leather but find they often draw too much attention to themselves in practice.

Maybe it's a function of the rest of my wardrobe rather than the colour itself?

Nice Guy Gerry! While you're taking shoe questions, what sort of longwings do you own?

Also thanks for the Sena cases recommendation whoever that was; got mine and it is lovely.

Hi Toby, I have a pair of vintage burgundy Florsheim Imperial cordovan longwings with the v-cleat in the heel - true gunboats! One of the most comfortable and versatile pairs of shoes I own. I wear them with everything from jeans to suits. If you want to get them more casual, just put on some coloured laces.

I've got a pair of vintage Florsheim Imperial longwings with a v-cleat heel, too, but mine are made from cowhide rather than from horsehide. I agree with Gerry - they are very comfortable and very versatile, able to be dressed up and dressed down.

I wore them yesterday and there are a couple of photos earlier in this thread - click here.

Congrats Lachy.

May I ask which Court you are an associate in? I have some friends who've done it and RAVE about it!

I've recently picked up the following:-

 

Lands End

 

These are good/awesome -->

Men's Regular Shorewood Saddle Sleeve V-neck Sweater (my new favourite sweater - in "dark camel heather") $17.49 Awesome

Men's Regular Fit Tailored Short Sleeve Pima Polo Shirt (in blue / red and currant) $23.80/ea Good

Men's Regular Plain Front Tailored Fit Original Chino Pants (these are cool, kind of a maroon colour called "bittersweet", cuffed) $29.99 Awesome

 

Haven't worn these yet, but they seem good -

Men's Regular 9" Plain Front Seersucker Shorts (deep blue stripe) $24.99

Men's Regular 9" Plain Front Embroidered Spring Chino Shorts (blue lobster) $19.99

 

These are all shit -->

Men's Regular Long Sleeve Buttondown Chambray Shirt (red)

Men's Regular Tailored Fit Paintbrush Shirt (mineral yellow) $10.49 (the fit on both these shirts is awful, feel like I'm wearing a wind sail, "tailored" my arse)

Men's Drifter V-neck Sweater (navy) $28 (well, not shit, but heavier than I thought it would be, and I don't like it half as much as the other one)

 

Also ordered some tailored Hyde Park OCBD's in blue and white.

 

Herring (sale items, saw how cheap they were and was like "fuck it, why not") :-

 

Herring Brands Hatch

45

F - Medium

Brown Calf

£37.46

Herring Oulton

45

F - Medium

Cognac Calf

£41.63

Herring Brooklands

45

F - Medium

Brown Calf

£37.46

 

Also picked up a HC tie, a bunch of tiebar.com ties, and a couple of belts.  I've also got a $100 Charles Tyhrwhitt voucher I'm thinking of putting towards one of their fitted navy blazers (I really want a tweed one, but I think it'll be too heavy coming into summer, even for Tasmania).

 

Speaking of HC ties and Ludlows, I still need to buy my robes/wig/bar jacket ($2000 for the lot, *sigh*).

Excellent! I like the look of the dotted one.

What width are the knit ties, by the way? And how much do you think that you will be charging for them?
post #19335 of 58029

Yeah that dotted one looks awesome.
