I agree with both of you splendid chaps on this.
Ha! I think ill let you two more knowledgeable gentlemen duke it out and just follow the final decision.
Side note. Had any old man stop me in gawler place this afternoon to tell me how nice my shoes were and that "they don't make them like that anymore". Still feeling a little awkward that this pretty much made my whole day.
Even if he did ask if they were churches.
Nothing wrong with a good pair of Church's (I have 3 and they are just as good as my C&J's). Also, in asking if they Church's he was paying you what he considered to be a very high compliment.
Always liked this story about Church's - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2007-06-22/blair-wears-same-shoes-for-10-years/77290
In other news the Mr Porter Sale final broke me...think I might have a Nice Guy Gerry Nelson style addiction for Boglioli, ordered my 4th blazer today. Also picked up a Drakes Navajo Pocket Square, some socks (pink of course) and boxer shorts (well, since I had already paid the shipping). Have heard great things about Mr Porter's service so looking forward the arrival of the goods (have been impressed by their website and other media).
Here is the link (and a few photograph of the blazer) - https://www.mrporter.com/product/328979
