Blast and damnation I have been found out! Anyway, here's a little something for anyone with small feet but a big...heart. Nice conservative pair of Church Sheldon black captoe oxfords, 7UK. Slight second £195.00. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Those Church's are amazing. Wish I had smaller feet!

Alright every one that has asked for an invite so far, I have just sent one to.

I understand that Google is throttling invites so be patient.

Special dispensation will be required from here on in for me to send invites out.

Guys, has anyone had experience with the Loake Pimlico Chukka boots?

Would love a pair of the C&J Tetbury's but having trouble justifying the extra spend on what are essentially suede boots which will no doubt cop a good beating on a night out.

Kudos to the guy on the 96 tram this AM - lilac chinos, brown suede shoes, windowpane shirt, navy pea coat.

If you just want beaters, maybe you would consider Herrings Cantebury whih is only 115GBP. Or if you dont mind the trendier white rubber sole there are some chukkas on clearance for only 55GBP

Thanks for the suggestion Blahman. I think the chisel toe on the Canterbury looks a bit better.

I've got a pair of Loake suede chukkas, I was tossing up between the Kempton (26 Last) and Pimlico (Capital Last) which, lasts aside, seem to be very similar: both are from 1880 range and have dainite soles. The Kemptons are GBP20 cheaper. I love mine and would say, go for it!

I'm not talking smack, I am talking from experience. Well obviously they don't all cost 3000AU. I paid 2100AU in August 2010 (H&S Crispaire, 2 Piece). Prices have since gone up by more than 10%, and the fabric I had my dinner suit made in is certainly more costly than H&S Crispaire. Chan's upcharges on premium fabrics is certainly more compared to P Johnson also.

i didnt mean to offend you. ive had a few things made up by chan, a few suits from lessers 10/11 suitings and a harrisons havana and they were all around 12000 hkd, or under 1500 aud (the last of those done in dec 2010).

im sure ill try p johnson sooner rather than later. in fact, i would have gone down the dinner suit route if i had more notice of the event, rather than the shitty rental i will be sporting tonight

what fabric did you use, for the record?

Speaking of HK bespoke, are there actually any cheap but decent bespoke places left in HK? By cheap I mean still under $1000.

For those that asked for google+ invitations apparently google is allowing an intake at the moment so hop on it.

I have both, the kempton in suede and the pimlico in calf. The pimlico last is a bit sleeker in the toe box. I'll put some compare pics up tonight if you like.
