Good to see the younger generation of women stringing impressionable young men along with the odd compliment.

Times haven't changed.

Haha I read this the other day and was simultaneously disgusted, intrigued and confused. I couldn't work out whether the article was admitting he had a problem, or about rub-in-your-face type wealth and frankly I'm not sure he knew either.

 

I hope my affinity with clothing never gets to the point that I write a self indulgent article with a sentence beginning like this: 

 

"I suddenly felt an erection in those pants..."

 

 

Terrifying.

The tie, shirt and hanky are all Henry Carter.

 

This jacket didn't get enough love. It's fantastic!

Damn shirt looks better on GN than myself.

 

Maybe I should paint myself brown.

Would any of you Aussie blokes be interested in my pair of Carmina Austerity Brogues in snuff suede. They're a 10.5UK, on the Rain last and come with beautiful lasted shoe trees. Here's a pic of them:

They're in great condition and were an MTO project from Epaulet. Easily the best shoes I own. The only reason I'm looking to offload them is I am now a full time undergrad student and don't get enough opportunities to wear them. I find it difficult to pull off austerity brogues in lectures when everyone else is in thongs and singlets. I'd be looking for about $350 plus postage or pickup if you're in Sydney. PM me if anyone's interested or has questions.

WTF DR!?

 

That far out weighs anything i've ever purchased.

 

Where are you going? Thailand? You don't need cash! Keep these shoes. They freaking rock! Frothing like a psycho right now.

 

If they fit well, then you don't need to offload them. They'll last you years!

 

WTF!

You don't buy something like a pair of Carminas that fit perfectly, decide you aren't going to wear them over the next 12 months, and then sell them. You just don't wear them very much for the 12 months. That's it, that's the end of the story.

Haha yeah I kind of agree, but I think I'd prefer to trade them in for some shoes that I can get away with at uni (been eyeing various pairs of wingtip boots for a long time) and wear a bit more often. I'm not desperate to get rid of them. I also think that great shoes need to be worn, so I'd prefer someone who was going to wear the crap out of them picked them up.

Guys, 

 

When you buy a leather soled shoe is it okay to get a vibram coat? I've read it can effect the balance/wear of the shoe or is it a non issue? 

 

I've also considered getting the soles changed to dainite - is there a good place to get this done in Sydney or would any cobbler do? is it expensive?

That's not another brand like Topy? Not again, noooooooooooooooooooo!!!

 

On a more serious note, I don't know if you can actually get dainite conversions. But it may be useful to know that there is a dainite version of Loake's Aldwych too (like Nabil's Hallams).

It's fine. I'd encourage you to wear them before doing it though, as you might as well break the shoe in first.

You can, it's just not common in Australia. Somewhere like B.Nelson in the states will do a danite or commando sole on a welted shoe easily. I think the best we can do here is a glued addition.

This brings up a valid point actually. Does anyone know of anywhere which will resole danite soles?

Hi,

 

I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with Drake's Fair Isle jumpers/vests?
I'm in the market for one and was wondering how heavy the wool is.

I've got my Dad's old one my Mum made but it's a little too snug.

 

 

Cheers.

The height of navel gazing has reached astronomical levels in the Whnay so called good taste thread. 

 

So many experts, so many opinions.

 

White shirt and odd jacket is apparently odd, according to TasteMaster Mafoofan.
