Guys not to steal thunder from the halloween discussion but could I get your opinion on those orthotic allen edmonds recommended to me earlier - which is most applicable for frequent 1-2 a week work wear (suit and tie, but commando)

Just going for a black pair for now. For brown I just want a pair of chukka boots, and anyway, will be more comfortable buying AE again once I know my fit and size... as luck would have it, Christian Kimber sold out of his brown chukkas, but they look pretty nice in the pic tho... wait is until Jan...

I went on a hunt for exactly what you're looking for last year, Nabil. Turned up very little.

Do you know a stockist for Baldwin here? Incu Clothing might be a good option, though I sure there are others with better suggestions.

 

I'm in no hurry, so maybe when I'm down in Melbourne sometime I'll take a look.

 

I'll check out the General Pants, Incu and Glue Store websites.

 

I've checked Someday / Somewhere / Someplace too.

 

Thanks, PS.

Ah, I remember it now!

 

I'll keep you posted of any updates.

 

There are plenty of super skinny options which are.. well.

Fair enough....I am sure you know more places than me...I cannot remember what the general consensus on APC were but these looked OK to me (maybe too slim).

Wow I missed the Halloween party busy watching Beetlejuice one of Tim Burton's early films loved the use if stop motion animation.

I enjoy watching kids have fun, nephews nieces ect but I have to ask what parent in their right mind would let kids out to partake of an uncontrolled processed sugar hit at that time of night with school the next day, I saw enough sugar induced carnage after my sons birthday parties.

LM as for my anti American comments I give you this ( alleged) exchange between General MacArthur and General Blamey in New Guinea in 1942 after the advance against the Japanese had been stalled.

Big Mac " if you were an American I'd court-martial you"

Blamey "if I was an American I'd bloody shoot myself"

APCs are alright - good value for money if you value things like a low-profile, no label, decent denim.

 

The trouble with them is that they stretch by about 2 sizes.

 

I've had a pair of New Standards, and they're fairly loose from the knee down, for me. Requires a substantial amount of shortening.

 

I've also had a pair of Petite Standards. They're not bad either. Great from the knee down. Trouble with them previously was that to fit my thighs, I had to size up on the waist. Now that the waist of the jeans has stretched (and my own waist has shrunk), they're unwearable. Not even with a belt.

Fair enough Nabils - even weight loss has its negatives...

Another quick question - which Nike Flyknits do you have? I remember they looked great.

They're the Trainers, mate. Both this pair and the Black/White pair.

 

Good for middle distance runs. If you have wonky knees or patella, not good for anything greater than 8 km. In my unqualified opinion.

What about going to get a coffee/walking on the beach/late night supermarket shopping?

Do you really want a Derby compared to an Oxford? Personally, I think Derbies are average.

 

Out of those three, I'd hit the brogue cap toe. Rather than the plain cap toe and the brogue. It's the middle point.

Derbs are more accommodating to wide feet
