Yeah mate, just cruising the markets on a chilly Sunday morning There were two pairs of Tods in about a UK7 also and these in a UK10
They are very nice - expensive slippers - jaypee - wear them with dressing gown and PJs, to watch TV, to take out garbage, pick up paper in morning , or run outside to car at night to get something. OTOH if you read the sartorialist you'll slip them on with a suit or pants with no sock and hoicked up above your ankles to go out to a bar.
He needs to button down those button-down shirt collars. Or wear non-button-down collared shirts.
He does not "need" to do anything. This is one of his personal quirks, and from what I can tell his style has a lot of love here and through his MostExerent blog. I am a fan of most of what he wears (on him), and even the stuff I do not like I understand that it is HIS style and his, very well informed, choice to wear it.
Not that anyone needs me to stand up for them. But that is not my point, nor do I mean to have a go. I am just bored of people saying you need do this or you have to do that, and these are THE rules. Better to phrase it as "In my opinion, he would look better if..." or "I would have..." instead of hard and fast rules with no flexiblity for individuality and personal style. Treat any rules as guidelines. I am sure I am guilty of stressing "rules" in the past too.
Anyway... I cannot make it to the Herringbone sale until possibly Wednesday, if at all. I do not really need anything, saving for a trip to P Johnson Tailors but am looking for a small favour. Can any of you nice Melbourne SFers who are going let me know if there are any knit ties (with colours and prices) available? It would be appreciated, happy hunting.
