^Speaking of Black Knit TIes, bought one from Toby on tuesday! Hopefully it's as versatile for me as it's touted as on here(judging by Jason's pairing it won't disappoint).

Loner-Hope it makes you less of a loner with ladies ;P

Fuk u ageing.....

Hard wearing, casual, cold and wet weather footwear suggestion? Worn with something like jawnz, ocbd, sweater and barbour and other such vibes. Thinking a pebble or textured chukka, but any other ideas that are maybe even more hard wearing (not looking for redwings and such). 

ALSO GUYS MY FEET SIZING ISSUES ARE GONE (kinda) AS I LOST A SHIT TON OF WEIGHT AND THEY ARE WIDE BUT MANAGEABLE NOW!!!

So some shoes which have never fit me and have been in the closet are wearable now! Yet pants are loose T_T But fuck who cares!

EDIT: I like sneakers and I'm over thirty; usually wear boring ones though and speaking of Vans my most worn pair are a grey suede pair.

Personally I prefer a bit more subtlety

 

I'll post photos of my suitshop suit once it comes in, I ordered mine with peak lapels (and side adjusters rather than belt loops and IIRC - and I may not be- jetted pockets, as I like jetted pockets).  I've already seen it and it looks sharp, and frankly needed hardly any adjustments at all after round 1- very good fitting.  The whole process was excellent (the first time I've bought made-to-measure anything), I daresay I'll be giving it a good thumbs up once I've had the chance to wear the suit out and about.

Ah good to hear - with the pockets if for some reason you order the standard flaps they are designed in a way that can be tucked into the pocket and will look jet. Gives versatility

Romp-actually I have too many suede shoes (impossibru?) and was looking for something in a hardier leather. To the airmaxes, not sneakers either. But the Alden Chukka's do look great and hard-wearing. Will go and do more research.

TB: Smash some leather sneakers, mate.

 

Suitshop: tried it on briefly today. The pants are great. Fantastic fit. Really happy with that. The jacket I can't tell yet - I don't know shit about jacket's fit, and I wasn't wearing a shirt (just an undershirt) so it's hard to see how it goes. I think it's a bit big in the stomach, but I don't know. It'd be good to get some opinions on that from people who, like, know how a jacket fits. As opposed to LM.

 

An aside - I also ordered a PJ shirt when I got fitted for my SS suit. It was, perhaps, naive to hope they'd arrive at the same time, but I can't help being a little disappointed that the shirt didn't arrive today as well :(.

 

Will post photos sometime on the weekend.

Suede is surprisingly hardy, I've found. 

 

What's your budget? Meermin have a lot of nice styles in derbys/chukkas on their wider lasts, in grain/calf/suede. Almost all on danite, too.

Not possible to have too many suede footwears.

But hardier leather is very handy and easier to look after. Less worry about beer, red wine, sauce, rain, puddles, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, wasabi, soy sauce etc dropping on them. Boots are good but a pain lacing up 6 to 8 holes or more. Chukkas. A good full country chunky gunboat brogue pebble grain shoe will work.

Send us a photo Matt - hard to do a 2nd fitting in Mildura but we want to ensure the fit is right.

 

I will find out re:the shirt for you - we'd rather you receive your kit straight away rather than wait for items to roll in
