I know it's a band-aid fix but have you tried tongue pads? They will fill some empty space and push your foot back into the heel.

With respect.

Tongue pads aren't a Band Aid fix.

Band Aids on the heel or under tongue are a proper Band Aid fix and recommended.

FH, have you tried sole pads? Also, as the leather gets softer, the heel slip should reduce with increasing flex. I have made the same mistakes, but i now have a pair of old Ballys with buttersoft leather which wears very comfortably with a sole pad, as it is sized nearly a full size up from normal fit. It is now eight years old, with probably about two more years of life left, being on a weekly rotation.

Gents: today, I had the best day of my trip so far. Started off climbing the Cupola at the Duomo in the morning with very few other tourists, while the hoardes were lining up for the cathedral instead. Then, saw David and some early Renaissance paintings at the Accademia. Began my menswear tour with my supportive wife. Initially, all stores were closed for lunch and we were stuck near the Arno. In the end, got to visit Liverano, buy a signed copy of I Colori Di Antonio, and take a few photos with Sig. Liverano. Chatted to Taka and Liverano's daughter. Stopped by Hidetaka (where I couldn't afford anything). Frasi was still closed. Stopped by Il Bisonte and put a doctors bag on hold. Went to Mannina and bought a couple pairs for the wife and one black tassel for myself. Chatted with Antonio Mannina, who is a really nice guy. Got to see the Mannina workshop, but Mannina Sr was at the Excelsior for an event. The loafers I bought have awesome leather uppers - full grain and very fine creasing. On par with Cleverley I think. The soles are machine welted, but I loved the immediately comfortable fit. Here are some photos to share and hoping to go back to Liverano and Il Bisonte tomorrow.

Totally menswear fanboy moment! This made my day!

nice iSurg

Thanks for giving me some ideas on what to visit in Florence. Unfortunately I will only have 4 days in Florence of which one day alone is a trip to Cinque Terre.

if you don't mind me asking iSurg, what is the price range of the Mannina shoes and where exactly is the Il Bisonte store as I am planning to drop by and hopefully find a bag I like

Gentlemen,

I am commissioning a bespoke tie from Rene of Deer Style.

I've narrowed my preferences down to a few groups of swatches and I thought that I'd crowdsource an opinion as to the preferred choices.

First swatch group:



Second swatch group:



Third swatch group:




At the moment, I'm tending towards fabrics 3, 4 or 5 from the third swatch group. What do others think?

Fabric 2 from the top. From the 3rd swatch. Looks awesome IMO.
post #38710 of 53827

I like the 5th fabric from the top of swatch 3 or any on swatch one (bar the last fabric from the top).

There is something seriously wrong with you. You should seriously seek help.

All the third ones look good but look decidedly wintery for a Brisbane summer if youre planning on wearing them soon.

Which are similar to what you already have? Which will fill gaps in your tie collection? What do you plan on wearing them with?

 

If I were to choose one, it would be number 2 in the third swatch group since it would go with nearly all the suits and sportscoats I own.

Thanks all. PoP, I was looking more for recommendations of shirtmakers and brands.

 

I was after for something like this:

 

 

 

I've yet to see anyone from Maccas looking like this.

 

 

That shirt is probably made by Ascot Chang. I think that fabric is a D&J Anderson, or a Thomas Mason.

DB, supergas run True to Size. And they're far more comfortable than Jack Purcells.
