Meermin? I'm looking at getting some of the double monks, although a little hesitant due to sizing concerns. Can anyone shed any light on the Hiro last? I've read through the Meermin thread but unfortunately all the comparisons are against other lasts I have no experience with! My foot would be on the wider side of standard, but is not overly wide.

Aaaand I like the dark brown penny loafers. And after considering the advice kindly provided in this thread, it looks like some Kimber tassels are the way to go also

Personally, not a fan of croc skin.

A wholecut can wait.

After someone here suggested I check out your blog/Instagram for some tassel loafer inspiration, I've come to the conclusion that you sir, are a boss. (Not foxhound, but nabilmust)

like most things, I highly doubt you going to stop at one pair, so you might as well buy both.

 

Does this mean you have the personal catalogue to start a Black Whole Cut thread? Please say yes.

I should point out of course you can have wholecuts and captoes that are brogues. And ironically austerity brogues aren't actually brogues.

I'll qualify my opinion by admitting I don't mind these styles so much. I'd actually like a black or preferably espresso captoe with diamond cut broguing on the cap on an aggressive last. Stitched captoes and plain wholecuts though I'm not mad on.

Don't like black (mock) croc.

(1) they break with tradition
(2) lacking a horizontal line, they appear larger and more gaudy
(3) their single leather construction reminds me somewhat of a condom

Wow, you're right.

Don't get me wrong, I love black shoes, but captoes and wholecuts are too austere for my tastes. And anyone in Australian business who will begrudge you wearing black brogues instead... Well, no such person of consequence exists.

 

Just follow sartorial rules and fit in already.

 

Look at the world around us - what has change brought? crime, moral depravity, nuclear war, environmental disasters and women's rights. 

 

When we waive from our traditions society falls apart at the seams.

(1) Chelseas come from an even older tradition and consequently hold greater importance

(2) the yearling texture is not analogous to latex

(3) Last time I checked penii do not bend at a 90 degree angle

Ha ha well played. My wholecut boots are camel and croc so I guess that makes them less than austere.
