Speaking of Suitsupply, what's with their trousers? Measurements seem whacko; smallest waist size on their 'soho fit' is >34"... Am I reading that wrong?
post #46757 of 54953

These came today:

 

 

Ray-Ban RB5154s in a 51/21. 

 

I'm reasonably happy with them - I think if I had my time again I would have found an optometrist to measure me up and bought a pair of Shurons in the right size. 

 

Does anyone know where to go for good guidance on glasses? I want to get a pair of new wayfarers and clubmaster sunglasses down the line and I want a really good fit.

Uhh probably? Seems odd. 

Waist size of their trousers or the jacket?

Pietersen is well over six foot. Have stood near him.

Hits the ball scary hard as well.

Trousers. Only seems to be the soho pants with the funny measurements. Could be they've mixed some jacket measurements in there...

Defo possible. 

 

I'm a 38S and the pants come with a 34 waist, but this is my no means their smallest pants size. 

If you're ordering odd trousers btw size up.

SAB is one of the best case makers around. I was lucky to get mine when GBP & EUR was hammered. I paid in EUR and conversion was around 1.18:slayer: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I think Double Monk started selling decent generic ones for $20?

What kind of case appeals to you then?

 

Was it just me, or was Ger intending a pun here? I confess, I chuckled.

I have a very weird eclectic collection of around 25 or so accumulated over the years. Old Churches branded shoe trees made of aluminum with hinges, other aluminum ones with those spring things with knobs, plastic ones by the dozen with split spring loaded buts, fancy newish wooden ones in shoe size, old wooden ones, some really elaborate old wooden ones, strange plastic ones with a dial to lengthen etc, all sorts of interesting combinations of how they expand and fit shoe and with dials, levers, threads and different heel bits. Most of them I either got given to me or cost around $2. More fun than a bunch of pristine wooden ones that all look the same.

Not in my OCD mind.

Speaking of fun, do you ever put mis-matched shoe trees into a pair of shoes, just for the fun of it?
