Bumped into Michael Clarke today.

 

He was wearing a pretty standard grey suit. It looked like Hugo Boss. Terrible black shoes with big black sun glasses. Was polite of him to say hello. Shorter than you might expect as well - but then again the majority of powerful men are less than 6 ft.

Most batsman are short.

Lovely shoes but a bit formal for my dress habits these days. If they were wingtips or medallion semi-brogues in that shade I would have mugged you on your recent visit to Sin City.

Going back to driving shoe/moccs discussion a while back, I picked up these Loake Herberts when I went overseas. Yet to find out how they hold up, but so far so good, nice and comfy.

Was also going to pick up a pair of black Loake Aldwych, but there were a pair of older model Cheaney Sloane on factory clearance cheaper than the Aldwych. I could not find much information on the Sloane, but both seemed very similar in quality. Also the only pair left, exactly my size. I wonder if I was right in foregoing the Loake for the Cheaney...

Loake Herbert



I find that with driving mocs - for prolonged wear - you need to have more cushioning than just beads. You need those rubber cushions as well or something spongy inside the shoe.

Interesting observation this. I recently read of research which showed that a disproportionate number of business leaders had wide heads.

 

I think the researchers analysed the head proportions of board members from Fortune 500 companies and found this to be the case. Hard to say whether there is some kind of physiological explanation (e.g. pheromones, or personality type), or whether it's simply that having a fat head elicits a favourable impression in the minds of others.

 

I have a wide cranium (hat size 60) but a somewhat weak jaw. Needless to say, I am not on the boards of any companies.

 

As for batsmen - well, it stands to reason that they would benefit from a low centre of gravity.

coffeedudeguy, take the cheaney if it cheaper than the Loake, they are all similar quality.

Had a nice weekend in Canberra catching up with family & friends (missed Michelle G this time, sadly).

I found time to duck into one op shop. Not bad: BB Makers tie, Valentino tie, 2 pairs of Church's Consuls in 7.5G, 3 pairs of cufflinks and a 1/4 oz 9998 fine silver pendant and chain. Canberra guys should not complain about op shopping.

Pheromones + Physiology = Phrenology.

The Don was a midget.

Cheaney mainline is closer to C&J bench / Trickers than Loake. Make of that what you will.

Michael Clarke is far from a powerful man.

Merde PoP beat me too it with the phrenology observation. Mind you didn't think it was still credible after it's adoption by Nazi Germany. Not that it was ever credible to begin with.

Either this man is on drugs or the notion of Italian fasionastias is a myth.

Just watched final of True Detective highly impressed if you haven't seen it do so. What did you think Fox?
