I tried on some RMW chukkas a while back, good quality but they had ivory colored plasticky soles which sorta killed the look for me. Also quite a pronounced chisel toe, if you like that sort of thing...

Bad karma all round!
Was it the ffffuuuu.gif last or the foo.gif last? I've heard the latter can be a bit prickly.

Nice. How did you go about ordering those out of interest? I've seen the pics floating about and they are without doubt a handsome boot. Would love to see some pics of your boots if you have a chance.

Email & bank transfer. They (Cheaney) were really good about it. I'll try to get a picture when I get some natural light.

The pictures here are pretty accurate in the mean time.

I liked this thread more when there was quoting of Milton (various) and such.

I'm currently reading Sebastian Horsleys book Dandy in the Underworld**.

A rollicking romp of a read and possibly even much of it is true. I'm told the more unbelievable parts are true - the believable parts less so.
Highly recommended

**The astutely hip and knowledgeable amongst youse will recognise this as the title of a Marc Bolan album - Horsley's hero. Me I like to flash my knowledge by pointing out that Flo & Eddie did the backing vocals for T Rex.

Also I think they are all MTO so you could probably ask that the factory leave the longhorn logo off the upper if you want, not that it's all that noticeable in the suede version.

I was interested to learn it also comes in a black suede as well - I think it was you Romp IIRC that was interested in black suede boots a while back?

I'm after some black suede whole cut or maybe 3 eyelet derby but need to be on quite a sleek last esp on the instep

Yes that's something I was going to look at in the shop tmr.. I like a soft toe on chukkas and the RMW are typically quite defined

In other news a pair of carmina's Should hopefully arrive soon smile.gif

whats with the number of "students" making posts about going to DiSano? they pop up every now and then and always a student and always thanking Sator for the discovery hehe. Back when I was a student I wouldnt have been able to even afford a hire suit.. times are a changin'

 

I dont think there is anything wrong about what you have picked, all personal preference. For my own wedding I probably wouldnt rock double monks to my own wedding though - Id probably go with the Outram or Cityhall model. But then again I went tux and bowtie when I was married and you are going for a blue DB.

These were the AS Exclusive chukkas I posted to SF ages back, if that's any help.

I agree with Romp's comment about shoes - I'd tend to go for a more conservative captoe or similar, rather than a pair of double monks, as I think that it would suit the outfit better.

Apart from that, though, I think that the choice of a navy DB and a nice, small-scale glen plaid tie is a good one - are you planning on wearing a white shirt, by the way?
post #29833 of 48617

I would just go something really conservative - like a mid grey or navy suit, white shirt, macclesfield from drakes and a pair of meermin or loake oxfords. 

I'd rather look back on my wedding without seeing my young self's attempts to look dapper. In the end though its not my wedding.

Romp, I really cant afford it either smile.gif, but seeing as how I only want to do this whole thing once I thought to do it right.  I have been saving for over a year.

 

Romp and Journeyman, I appreciate the comments on shoes, I hadn't actually even thought that they might fit the conservative look of the suit.  Also, yes of course the shirt will be white, I forgot to say that... thinking of paying Nahkle (sp?) a visit for that one too.

 

Oli, I am a little surprised by your comment as I actually would have thought the navy DB to be quite conservative.  The main push for having it made for me was because it was DB, this way the lines will actually look right, it will be in proportion and it should look quite classic.  I would hope that my grandchildren would be able to look at photos from the day and not see any element of the outfit that would be specific to one time period.

I like DB suits, but theres something artificially trad about them, especially on a young person. 

The two layers around the chest dont really suit the Australian Sartorial climate either (social wise and climate wise).
