No cap toe oxfords as of yet, Full brogue derbys are my most formal black shoe so far.

Ok, so why not cap toe first, then diversity later.

hey Guys!

Want to buy myself a congratulations present for my new job - What are your thoughts on these with jeans/chinos?


Swansea - 300 pounds - Danitie Sole


Finsbury - 297 pounds - Leather sole


Brunswick 2 - 400 pounds (handgrade) - Leather sole - really worth the extra 100 pound?

or should i look at Carmina?


thanks!

That was the original conclusion, although the whole cuts just shouted out to me.

that is a subjective question, if you don't mind the extra bit of workmanship and slightly better leather, then it won't be worth it for you.

The C&J Brunswick are doing it for me. Although i am feeling a certain propensity towards the Carmina

I have a few bottles of coal valley shiraz from the Glaetzer family wineries, run by Nick Glaetzer (John's nephew). Really pleasantly surprised when I tried his Mon Pere shiraz - the most "European" tasting Aussie red I've had the pleasure of imbibing. I love a big SA shiraz but the Tassie variety is just a lot spicier and more complex... like a finely tuned instrument on your palate rather than a velvet sledgehammer.

Given what you plan to wear them with, I would narrow it down to either of the bluchers, but also think about a suede brogue as well.

Yep. I wouldn't pick a pair of close-laced shoes to wear with denim and/or chinos.

Closed lace could work but a lighter colour e.g. tan would keep the shoes informal enough for chinos, IMO. Dark brown + closed lace as per those examples = too formal I think.

Edit: GB's walnut AEs would work for example!

LOL excellent choice of words. The Spanish wine shop in Surry Hills used to carry Paul Osicka Shiraz Heathcote Victoria it was full of ripe raspberries with a hint of black pepper , very soft on the palate. Sadly have not seen it in years. And at 9c with an overnight low of 2c i think i should get out a bottle of red for tonight. Had a bottle of the Laughing Magpie the other night a 2009 first time in a while its a Shiraz Viognier very nice. I usually reds a good four hours to breath before consumption.

Inspired by your earlier post I ordered a bottle of Tas pinot noir at lunch today.

Hmmm, if we're honest, it was actually two bottles... shog[1].gif

Excuse the woeful photo (and tieknot). The suit is actually a lighter grey than it looks on this photo.

The only photo I got off the trousers came out so dark it wasn't even worth posting. The waistcoat needed taken in by 1cm so Matt had taken it with him by the time I got round to taking a photo. I'll post another snap next week in better light when it's all complete.

looks good but tell us the price son!
