Enjoy mr Tehbunny, oh if you haven't seen Deadman watch it, if you like it watch Above the Law with Benini and Tom Waites if you like that watch Ghost Dog. In the case you have seen them all, I rest my case : )

LOL. Thanks for all the suggestions. Trouble is, none of my trousers were made for the classic braces, so I might have to get clips. It's that, or alterations. I've run out of side tabs to tighten.

Just one pair. They get more comfortable over time.

Poetry is a bit dense for me. The only rhyming action I get is through Limericks.

 

There was a young man from Cape Horn,
who wished he had never been born,
and he wouldn't have been,
if his father had seen
that the tip of the rubber was torn!

I just succumbed and bought some Serge Lutens, so the Montale will have to wait.

Have buttons sewn in. Takes about two minutes for someone with a machine. It makes for a much more complete look.

Roger that. I'll research this a little before bringing it to an alteration place so that I can accurately tell them where the buttons are to be sown.

http://everythingaboutbraces.blogspot.com.au/2010/09/placement-of-brace-buttons.html?m=1 for button placement.

I'll also admit to owning a pair of EGs. Lovely shoes,not sure if they're worth the premium over other options these days.

Just pulled the trigger on a pair of carminas. If you go through my post history- i have been wanting these for nearly a year and finally just manned up.

 

And ps- great tie Jas. I think i will have to put that on my evergrowing wish list.

post #26355 of 57960
Thanks and congrats on the Carmina's. Are they the brown captoe robert lasts? I'm wearing them today. They are easily my most verstale shoe. Make sure you get metal toe taps put on, mist of the mister minits can do it or take them out to the Manuka Cobbler, who strangely is based in Fyshwick.
