sorry, i should have been more specific: in Sydney?

Wrong. You're talking about a dandy foxy coxy foxy. The school girls are talking to him

Good choice! They're had to get. If I didn't have my Lindricks, I would have gotten those.

Stop talking about this American Tailors sale, I'm not buying any more shoes.

 

What else did they have again?

On the tram and train schoolgirls talk to me all the time: "Hey grandad you can have my seat"

Yes but when you offer for them to sit on your lap that's when they stop talking to you and call for help.

Something I never understand on Reddit is Americans buying goodyear welted shoes online. 

 

Here, I can understand as there are really no options for bricks and mortar (recently changing with Double Monk and Kazuna). 

 

But when you have AE and Alden at your doorstep? Why order Meermins, Carminas etc and take such a gamble on the fit?

Not as yet, but that's one to remember for the future!

 

Thankfully, he's largely avoided catching the "like" plague, which afflicts many people nowadays.

Kudos to all the Brisbane SF forumites who managed to put on the last get-together. Was in SG at the time, but I'm damn saddened I missed it. 

 

As @lukejackson mentioned, it was just the two of us, but it was great to catch up, put a face to the name, and hear about his adventures in Jordan. We'll have to plan a larger gathering soon.

Interesting. Given the considerably investment that BB/Oroton have made already, let's hope that they maintain their presence *and* expand the size and quality of their range.

Oli, you're certainly correct about people gambling on the fit if they're buying online and haven't had the opportunity to try the shoes on in person.

 

However, with respect, you're making a mistake comparing AE and Alden to Meermin and Carmina, as they are, in general, very different styles of shoes. AE and Alden typically make round-toed shoes that look serviceable but which don't, by and large, look very elegant. They suit a certain aesthetic style, but that style doesn't appeal to everyone. Meermin and Carmina do offer a couple of soft, round-toed styles but they also offer quite a few more elegant options in narrower lasts with soft-square, chisel and almond-toe styles.

 

Also, I don't know about Meermin but Carmina's shoes have closed-channel soles, whereas AE doesn't and I don't think that Alden does, either.
