Now, I think that they look nice and I don't really like DMs.

I have had a stroke of luck.

 

A friend of a friend is one of those guys who goes round buying up dead stock and he came across someone selling DMs advertised merely as 'work boots' and got himself a bargain on god knows how many pairs.

 

Anyway, I was informed he was selling DMs for £20 a pair. I put it in an order for a pair of black boots and a pair of cherry red shoes.

 

I was happy with this as it was, saving over £150 total on the two pairs, but then on delivery I was informed that while they are brand new and unworn, they are actually a few years old and as such, they are apparently from one of the last batches produced in the Nottingham factory.

 

Happy days indeed!

Point taken M Clouseau, but I bet they didn't wear them like that in the 60s.  Moving on, I suppose.....

We were talking before about the difficulty in finding a gibson semi-brogue and I'm not sure if the Loake Byron has been mentioned from their 1880 range.

 

I was amazed when I popped into my local Debenhams yesterday to see probably a dozen decent Loake models, many of them from the 1880 range, including the Byron in three colours.

 

Here it is at Herring Shoes:

Perhaps the toe shape won't appeal to all here.

Guess you're right MrKnightley (about scarves). I'll try to go to the Renoma shop, the exhibition for the 50th birthday of Renoma lasts until December. If i'm allowed to, i'll take some pictures, if there is interesting stuff about Minets...

That's great, and hope to see some more pictures.

IMHO chisel toe rarely looks good worn and when it does, is usually only on a tall, slender build.

If you are a fan of a chisel toe(I am ) some of these R M Williams look very nice to me:

The Turnout style has a more rounded toe.

Mr Knightley,if that shoe had a rounder toe I would be very interested.

I have found a shoe the Barker Perth,that looks good in the pictures,IMO,the only downside is the high shine leather,3 colours,black,burgundy and brown,have to have a look at a pair in the flesh.

The only other ones that I have seen pictures of that I like are by Dinkelacker and Allen Edmonds,and its finding a pair to actually see before ordering that's the problem.

I had a look on Debenhams site,it says that they have 76 Loake styles ( I didn't count them ) I did notice a pair of suede Burford brogue boots that I hadn't seen before ( I have the black leather ones ) I am not too sure about suede shoes as I have noticed that they can get a bit worn and shiny in places quite quickly.

I had a look  for pictures online and there were a few,but no ladies,in one of the earlier pictures you put up from the 60s there was a lovely girl and I had  hoped that the ladies would be there celebrating as well as the blokes.

I have a theory though that ( most ) girls move on fashion wise faster than men, and that they are not so nostalgic,which may be why we don't get any female "originals" on here ? ( shame ).
