I like looking at top-notch shoes, what's wrong with that? *Sheesh*
post #39182 of 57840

Just quietly l have been eagerly awaiting my Carmina acquisition, yep they arrived and looked splendid and most importantly fitted perfectly! I sized up correctly and succeeded, was nervous though on the anticipated fit.

 

They are a pair of Penny loafers on the aggressive Simpson last in the Dark Brown... Will post pic's soon because it did happen! 

 

Can anyone recommend a decent place online for Business Cards? Many thanks

The Simpson loafer is a beautiful shoe. Gerry has them in brown suede. I was almost tempted to get these over the String Loafers...but I order the String Loafers and the wait begins.

Did you order directly from Carmina? And did you have to wait for production?

PS Neither GN or I sized up to fit the Simpson lafer (I tried his on) - but they are suede so loose up a bit.

Eventful day. Was chilly in the morning, so I donned duck chinos, OCBD and my Barbour. I barbequed in the afternoon.

And I picked up a pair of Church's Cowes and Christian's new pocket square!

lol. Don't take this the wrong way, but some of your posts are very funny. Like some random diary entries of well to do eccentric.

Friday the 10th: Chilly out. Wore the Barbour. Barbequed and then some new Churches. Dotty due at five for cocktails.

Article in SMH today on briefcases:

Look at the pushback from the comments!  Typical lines: "A briefcase has no use at all...blah blah...if someone judges you by your briefcase blah blah blah...."  These numbpots do not realise that what they are actually saying is "I am so cool, I do not need to care how I look or present myself. I do not care that I am a visual eye-sore, as long as I am rockin my thang."

I'm actually surprised by how much I've used my Filson - work everyday over here and it's also been to Myanmar and back to Malaysia with me. No doubt I'll be taking it to Japan when I go there. Very useful!

 

I wonder who posted this:

To Foxhound: "If you all must know. I bust my ass in a pizza joint to purchase my things."

 

That's heartening to hear.  I know of a particular forumite who regularly post his purchases for all to see as an ego-stroke. We are talking bespoke shoes from Bestetti, on top of Lobbs and Cleverleys, bespoke suits from Saville Row, Chan etc on a close to monthly basis, customised cufflinks with Burmese jade, Audemar Piguet watch, ties from Marinella etc.  The total costs of his purchases exceeded by far any possible range of employment incomes for someone in his position (a recent graduate with degrees in some communication/political shit). 

 

The main message is that for you (and other younger members just out of uni), your main asset= a long time horizon in which you can compound your savings. Just simple mathematics, $10 invested wisely at a compounded rate of 10% per annum will double roughly every 7 years, so your $10 becomes $320 after 35 years.  Up the return rate to 18% per annum, and your $10 saved today becomes over $10,000 in 36 years. I can assure you that none of your normal SF items will appreciate in price at that rate.

 

Save some of it, dont blow it all.  Even the best shoes will look shabby after 35 years.

peter pan

please pm me details of where to get the 18% compounded rate for capital safe investments.

Or even the 10% one will do.

Ta muchly mate.
