Women think you're the big bad wolf and flirt outrageously with you as well. nod[1].gif

This is so, so true.

Is that the same Asian dude who likes to go, "BOKEH!" ?

Spectre, great to see you posting!

Are you still writing the odd column about men's fashion?

They look very nice. Trickers often seem to be a bit overlooked on SF, but they have some quality shoes and their wingtip brogue boots are great.

Anyway, I had also bought some 'cotton rich' socks from Myer. After about 4-5 washes, the Myer socks have started to 'pill'. The same number of washes for the Pantherlla socks has had no effect on the sock at all. The ribbing is still 100% new. It is quite incredible.

The only problem is, I am a big fan of thick socks. Pantherellas are anything but.

The cotton ones are for the summer. The wool ones are thicker and good for the winter, I order mine from here:

Useful as I only wear over the calf socks.

I notice you're a 9.5UK in C&Js.. curious if you are the same size in those Belgraves? I've found Tricker's sizing can run a little smaller than the other English makers, so would be interested in your experience.

I only like the Australian forum now. I get into too much trouble dealing with yanks (hence the banning of Diavolo).

Did someone mention epic douche earlier ? The Duke of Douches, without a doubt...challenging guys to street fights on a forum (current affairs I think) for Christ's sake !!

Funny you should mention the columns. I have been thinking of reviving them, especially after what I see as a renaissance in tailored clothing here.

My (highly expensive but wonderful) experience with Tom at Patrick Johnson and what will be a parallel experience next year with the great guys at Double Monk (God the stuff in there is mouth-watering) has me thinking there might be a call for more writing.

If anyone's interested you can read the previous columns on ludlows.com.au (right down the bottom of the page under style or something) ... they are a bit outdated and my ideas have changed a bit.

Thanks

Yep I'm the same size in both shoes UK9.5, however, the Tricker's were an 'F' and C&Js were 'E'. I had intially ordered the Tricker's in UK10 but sent them back as they were too big.

 

Comparing the Tricker's with last 348, I would say that the 348 are marginally tigher. Hope that helps

I love the RMW bags but at $1K they're out of my price range frown.gif

Some of the Affliates like tanner goods etc worth a look

 

My personal favourite leather goods are Il Bisonte but probably closer to the RMW range.

 

Think of it as a 10-year investment:)

Herringshoes - could not speak more highly of them

post #23457 of 55246

those Trickers look very nice.

 

Wonder if anyone had some recommendations for something similar, though a little cheaper.

 

I'm looking for some captoe brogues in a similar style. I do like the fit of the C&J 348 last (I have one pair of the Highbury) but I think the vamp may be a little high for me. The front does seem to wrinkle quite a bit when walking.

 

Currently have these meermin offerings as my top choice http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1967 for price/quality. I think they may be a little harder to beat but I'd definitely be happy to see any other options.

Depends on how "cheap" you wanted to go. At the bottom of the range, I would look at Loakes Strand: http://www.pediwear.co.uk/loake/products/2607.php

 

If you wanted to spend more, look at Cheaney: http://www.cheaney.co.uk/classic/121/cheaney-wardour-ii-in-burnished-burgundy

 

Cheaney make some very nice shoes for the price, albeit not many lovers on SF

Look at some of the Loake 1880 offerings, particularly on the Capital last.
