I certainly do mate lol. I'm no ectomorph but my damn feet are quite narrow which means damn limited lasts!! I'm an UK8 which means they don't look too dangly!

At least I'll get a feel of them as I've never put rubber "protection" on the soles of my shoes. I just chuck on in-soles for extra cush.

This would be my test sample. It ain't a Loake or Church's, but its nice enough to wear on non-suit days.



Don't waste your money on topying these shoes.It will cost you $45. Just add some rubber toe taps and off you go.

That's the one. I believe you can get some samples from them pretty readily at their warehouse.

I've just plonked up some moleskin trousers for sale see below spoiler or link in sig.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Moleskin Trousers
Peter Christian, moleskins, Loden / grey green dull colour
These are Men's trousers not boys pants
11.5” to 12" front rise,
9" or a bit less leg opening, with around 10" at knee,
waist size on label 34.
Flat front.
Comfort waist.
Inseam is about 29.75" with 2" to let down

These are that lovely thick soft, very warm English moleskin not the stuff Australians, RM Williams, call moleskin, which is more like a heavy twill.
Very warm - outdoor trousers.

$30 if in Melbourne plus a coffee. Plus postage elsewhere.

Further info:
http://www.peterchristian.co.uk/mens/trousers/flat-front-moleskin-trousers
Size on label 34, these trousers have been washed about 5 times, I wash all cotton around 3 times prior to wearing to soften up and complete shrinkage. The have the comfort waist. The comfort waist is a very well designed thing with elastic in each side, hidden, that allows for another 1.5 to 2" expansion. These have shrunk somewhat in the waist so that they are fully stretched at 34" and a bit. So they would be ideal for someone who varies in waist from say, 32.5" to 34". That said there is around 2" to let out at back of waist. To sum up, with no alterations they are ideal for 32.5" to 34" waist, but with letting out would suit 34" to 36"
Inseam is about 29.75" with 2" to let down if needed.

Reason for selling:
I'd need them taken out an inch to wear them that will cost me $40 or so. Trouble is I don't like the colour at all and so won't wear them. I have worn them less than 10 times.

Morning Gentlemen,

 

Behind closed doors, what do you wear for foot wear around the house? Slippers, thongs? I'm looking to get something, l currently wear Ugg boots, thongs, slip on loafers when we have guests. l don't want to go all Hugh Hefner and all, just thought the SF think tank may provide some ideas...

Very nice ToJ Double Rider, Ari.

 

Can't pull of a biker jacket for the life of me so settled for a leather baseball jacket.

I have this PRL blazer- it’s a Bradford cut with extra fine virgin wool ?. It is awesome ! I think this jacket will look better if you get your tailor open up the front quarters little bit. I have done this to mine.
