They are, in fact, Tricker's.

 

Meermin and Ed Et Al do a very similar Adeliade. Lovely shoe, and something I've got my eye on - but how many pairs of brown shoes can one man own before it becomes excessive? 

 

Actually, don't answer that!

Every year my old man purchases a pair of Aquilla's for $50 on special. They last him one year of 5 days a week wear for about 12 hours a day.
Let's say a pair of Crockett and Jones would last 10 years of the same wear. These are about $600 from Double Monk, give or take.9uLlxh

They look like Tricker's Belgrave (I have them in Tan), but I've never seen that colour before :cheers:

Perhaps not a wise move to give too much away, son ;)

Yes they are Belgraves! In espresso, which can look almost black in a certain light. Quite a versatile colour I've found.

I own 3 Linen Kamakuras. 

 

Want some pics or something?


Fit well, I like 'em.

I have one. Definitely looser than the slim fit models, which kind of works because you don't want them too close to your body. The whole point is to stay cooler after all. Mine has the cutaway collar which I admit I'm not 100% happy with, would like a little more structure. I'd classify them as casual, I still wear them under casual sportcoats, just not with a tie.

Rokay,

 

 

That's their button down white linen in a S. The sleeves could come up perhaps 0.5". I find the length of their 15.75/33 perfect - and the advertised length on these are 34.5" so obviously there's some shrinkage post wash. 

 

I'd wash/wear these a LOT before getting the sleeves tailored, too. 

 

I don't tumble dry my clothes, so it's just a cold water/hand wash setting on the washing machine then drip dry on a timber hanger. 

 

I do have one of me in white O&J chinos and a off-blue linen kamakura I'll upload when I upload it from my phone. Silly picture, but shows the shirt well.

Thanks very much for the info but for the love of Christ stop posting that particular pic! Looks like a crime scene.

They look great. My mid is made. How tall are you by the way? Just looking at length, though I'll buy regardless.

Crime scene of passion(ate love making)?

 

Nah but for real, it was a hotel room, fair go brudda. 

 

Mr. Jackson - 5'7", and maybe 5'8" on a good day.
