You don't count because you're still too young to know better. :-)

Looking 100% better - now hoick them up at the front waist and cinch it in and you'll be the best dressed man boy north of Sea Lake

Maybe i should harden my conscience : )

DB,

The Cloakroom's stock line-up may have changed, but when I was last in there some six or more months ago, they didn't have any Simpson last shoes. Their selection was mainly, from memory, models on the Rain and Inca lasts.

Of course, they may well change the line-up from time to time, so it's worth enquiring. As Romp or someone else said, the Simpson is pretty slim, so unless you take a slim-fitting shoe, then a last like the Rain last (which is quite generous but has a nice, chiselled toe) would probably fit better.

If you do happen to be in the city trying on some shoes, don't hesitate to get in touch as it would be nice to meet up for a coffee.

Sounds good JM, l will let you know next time l'm across town we'll meet up for an espresso...  

 

The Rain last looks fantastic as well, probably more suitable, as my foots not too slim!

Oh and the code 'freeship' should get you free shipping (within Australia only).

Feel free to PM me any questions/problems.

Thanks
Toby.

 

Just ordered a green wool tie which I'm looking forward to wearing!

not sure if any Aussie members here are on the thrift thread. if not.. boy. I'm no spoo worshipper, but I gotta hand it to him. he cumulated all his profits from thrifting to buy an F430.

Yes, I saw that. Good for him. He's worked hard for it and I'm pleased for him.

On another note, I've started watching Hannibal and the only thing I find unnerving is seeing Mads Mikkelson wearing a two button sports coat with both buttons done up.

One of the things I've enjoyed learning about on this forum is how to dress appropriately for the weather - from flannel pants, OTC socks to light weight summer jackets. One thing I haven't got sorted is wet weather shoes.

When you leave the house in the morning (heading for the office) and its hammering down with rain what shoes are on your feet?

An old/ugly pair of beaters?
Nice shoes with a Topy?
Something nice with a double leather or danite sole?
Cordovan?

What's everyone's experience when it comes to the wet weather?

When it's really wet, I tend to wear one of two different pairs of Loakes.

One is a two-eyelet blucher that has seen better days as they got pretty badly scuffed up when I was running for the bus one day and tumbled headfirst into the gutter after tripping on an uneven paving stone! I managed to renovate them to some extent, but some scrapes still show up along the sides and on one toe, so I don't really care if they get soaked.

The other really is a wet-weather pair of boots - pebble-grain, wingtip brogue boots with a Dainite sole that soak up (pardon the fxh-style pun) a lot of punishment and still look exactly the same. I just give them a dose of leather conditioner every few months and they look fine.

the ridiculous tie width and full Windsor is an eye opener in itself.
