Yeah The Ernesto, I was thinking it might be ideal to buy once I get there... Just thinking something pretty cheap with a lapel, cut well, might be better than something more casual. 

Starting in Amsterdam and then likely down to Florence. 

Im also having a shoe dilemma. Might not take leather frown.gif

Head in to Massimo Dutti in Amsterdam.

AMSTERDAM - PIETER CORNELISZ HOOFTSTRAAT, 131-133

Pick up a blazer...

This would work well as a travel jacket/blazer but doesn't look like they have a 42 http://www.themensshop.com.au/MJ-Bale-Cotton-Stone-Blazer/MJ-Bale-Jackets/

If you have some, I think a pair of leather boots are perfect for travelling - sturdy and rugged enough for when there is actual travelling involved, but can easily be cleaned up for a night out under chinos/odd trousers. Alden Indy,s Wolverine 1ks etc.

Legend. Exactly the sort of thing I had in mind but better. I really like a lot of those coats.

If you're in Florence, check out Boggi, Aspesi, Boglioli. You will get a healthy discount when you claim your VAT refund at the airport.

That is nice, I was actually looking at the navy check one, and happy to see the already discounted price has a further 25%.

Was concerned about the length. Definitely need a 'Long'...

 

I do have Wolverine 1ks in great condition, but just dunno with the toe and all. Would think a dark chelsea boot would be ideal.

Thinking might even look for some cheap loafers (poss. suede) while I'm over there

Just be aware they won't have all those styles in store, just what is in season.

Nonetheless, you will probably find what you want in Amsterdam (in terms of clothing, and other things...).

Thanks. Won't hesitate to spend a bit more with that in mind.

Is the quality/longevity of Meermin's standard range comparable to the Loake 1880 range?


Anyone advise me on these two questions?

Depends. Topy over leather doesn't really compare to a full rubber sole for proper shitty weather, but will be just as good for light showers/grass/etc. Top is easier to replace though. I'd suggest getting one pair on a proper rubber sole (danite/commando/ridgeway) for terrible weather and just living with the damage to leather soles the other times (or topy for peace of mind if you feel so inclined.). You will require a full resole if a danite wears though, although they are just as hardy, if not hardier, than leather soles. I wouldn't worry about wearing through them quickly. 

In regards to Meermin, assuming you have no quality control issues, I'd rate them similar to Loake/Barker. Depends who's lasts you prefer.

Pls no. Not this again.

Yes, please not another Topy discussion.
