post #23341 of 57883

going off the info member above have given, i'm deciding between two white shirts:

 

one by tm lewin http://www.tmlewin.com.au/Slim-Fit-White-Poplin-Shirt/26119,en_AU,pd.html?start=1&cgid=Mens-Slim-Fit-Shirts

 

one by hilditch and key http://www.hilditchandkey.co.uk/Slim-Fit/Cutaway-Collar-Double-Cuff-White.aspx

 

obviously there is a price difference, i just want to know if the price difference is warranted or not?

thanks

anyone dislike the use of the word 'class' or 'classy'? Whenever i hear it, i think of a bogan wearing cufflinks and thinking he is dressed up.

Sooo looking forward to 11 days off with my little man.

Today I'm wearing navy trousers, a blue oxford, tan belt and bluchers, black High Tied silk knit, brown merino v neck... and in tribute to the season, colorful striped Paul Smith socks.

I thought it was quiet on here because we're all out having a good time before the world ends tomorrow!

Does anybody have any advice on the sizing of Crockett and jones boots? I'm a 8.5 uk in the loake capital last and the church 73 last. I'm thinking about grabbing some C&J chukkas but I'm a bit in the dark on their sizing.

I'd head to Double Monk on Gertrude St and try on some for yourself smile.gif

Good to see everyone's making the best of it; had a day at the beach with my family! Off work for the next two weeks too :)

P.S.

Great wedding photo jas! Sadly I got married when I had no sense of style so I looked disgusting compared to my wife :P

She likes me for me, not because I wear ties like Luciano
Shined Crocketts and tab adjusters made from Vitale Barberis Canonico

Thanks Guys,

As should always be the case, it's my beautiful wife that makes the photo not me.

I prefer the term "upscale".

As we're talking Christmas attire, I'd like to share that I am wearing green pants, a red polo shirt and bright red socks.

Ho ho ho. Merry Christmas to all.

Do a little bit of a search on this thread, I discussed this a while back when weighing up what boots to get. Basically there are 3 (at least) C&J's chukka type boots, the Tetbury (which is the most formal and sleek model), the Chiltern (which is more casual and rounded) and the Chukka which is somewhere in the middle, has a leather soul and is unlined.

I have the Chukka model and I love it (was just saying today how great it is). In terms of sizing I take a 9.5 UK in most shoes, including Church's consul and C&J Sydney. However I slightly wide feet so with the Chukka sized up to a 10 UK as it on a narrow last. I also wear a 10 UK G in church's Last 73. That said I think I could get away with the 9.5 UK too but am very happy with the 10 UK.

I know Mr Nice Guy (Gerry Nelson) has the Tetbury in a 9.5 UK and it fits him well and we share a similar shoe size (and good taste in clothing). Some other members have the Loake Pimilco which is very similar too.

If I was to get another pair I might look at these from Carmina, which are about the same price -

As thebrownman said, if you are in Melbourne, you could try them on (and from my understanding get a good price) at Double Monk, but I am not sure which models they have or that you are after.

The other option is to join a number of us here in waiting for the release of Christian Kimber Footwear. I have seen his prototype models for the desert boots/chukkas and plan to buy a pair when they are available (next few weeks I believe).

Hope that helps. i would definitely recommend a nice pair of dark brown suede chukka boots.
