I use "Ian's Shoelace Site" for shoelacing methods, and my preferred methods are "straight bar lacing" and "straight easy lacing".

Hmmn.. The shoes I'm wearing right now have 5 eyelets, and they're done 'straight across' like the Valetmag website says. Seems to work for me. Granted, it's a little hazily written - not sure how I would have written it better, though.

 

(Though I confess I'm not sure if we mean the same thing by 'uneven eyelets').

 

By 5 eyelets, I mean:

I like it, but only use it for bluchers, such as Florsheim or Alden longwings. For balmoral shoes, I use the straight bar or straight easy lacing.

I just get mine from overseas - either directly from Thurston, from retailers like Brooks Brothers or J. Press, or from eBay, as braces from RL Polo and Brooks Brothers quite often appear on eBay.

If you order from Albert Thurston, you can ask them to fit leather ends in your colour of choice (well, as long as your colour of choice is white, brown or black).

+1 for Thurstons. Slippery slope though. You'll be sporting fishtails before you can say Gordon Gekko.

I have a few pairs on the 202 and 606 lasts.

Here are a couple of shots:

202 last - Asquith in Edwardian dark oak

606 last - Berkeley in Edwardian antique chestnut

Edit - I see that Gerry's already dobbed me in!

Anyway, please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or would like further details.

Can anyone rekindle my long dead love for poetry and tell me some poets to read and some books to pick up.

Also in my recco. frenzy who makes the best Ramen in Melbourne? Best I've had so far is Ramenya and would prefer a casual aura (not white tablecloth or anywhere near there) to the place as would like to go with friends for lunch.

1. Black captoe brogues 202 last. Very comfortable.
2. Burgundy antiqued Monmouths. Very comfortable not as much as 202s
3. Brown Burnished Brooksville wingtips on 888 very comfortable. 888 is chisel version of 202.
4. Pair of Malvern leather and canvas linen spectators. Also very comfortable. Don't wear much.


On a sad note (for older Aussie Forumites) the death of the Rugby League great Ferris Ashton of Controversy Corner fame. Rex Mossop,of course, as all Manly guys would know has also gone to the big Grand Final in the Sky.

Just got an update from Sandro from meermin and he he said he will pay for a cobbler to fix the problem with the heel. :)

 

 

 

 

So now I have a question probably aimed more at Journeyman. Where will I be able to get it fixed? (preferably in the city)
