the leather has no micro creases and is a little bit lumpy. Plus the color is a little different from calf. When you learn what shell looks like it becomes easy to tell.

Shoes made of calfskin develop creases and micro-wrinkles, which is normal with wear, whereas shell cordovan develops rolls or bumps and no 'wrinkles' the way calf does. If you look at the photo, you'll see the rolls.

I love Lacoste polos for casual summer wear. Some of their polos are cut very bizzare (very short and wide), but if you can find one with normal proportioning, they're awesome at thrift prices. The Vintage Washed ones are cool too. That dress is crazy!

A lot of the fake Lacoste has the short and wide cut.

Haha, it's tagged 42. But then I put it on, and it's like this tight-fitting, futuristic man cape with major hip flare; something a video game character might rock (think Dante from the Devil May Cry series) -- the kind of thing that would only seem complete if holding a deadly staff. Somehow, I don't see Lacoste being that fashuny, though.

I sort of like the boxy shorter ones, though. They're nice if you're short and don't have a six pack.

Did you find out which model these were?





Some lady picked them up before I could grab them but she quickly sat them back down so I grabbed them. Not sure what size they are but they fit my size 11 feet great and they look brand new.


Those are Trickers

After doing some research I think they are these http://www.orvis.com/store/product.aspx?pf_id=43CG

I think Orvis is written on the insole but part of it is a bit worn.

As mentioned before, those boots are made by Alfred Sargent, probably for Orvis.

Hit a five store circuit yesterday and did pretty well. Nothing really worth bragging/pic posting (BrooksBrothers,J.Crew casual stuff)...but I did grab a shirt that looked really nice and it was half off color...on the way to the register I look at the tag, "Valentino"...at home I look more and it says ''made in Hong Kong".
Are these quality shirts? It fits me very well and I love the color, so its a keeper, but just wondering if it was a good quality shirt.
Spotted a nice pair of Allen Edmunds, but one size too small for me.

Lacoste shirts are so frustrating. The first one I ever got, back in 2002, is perfect for my size. I have bought three since then, all in the same size as the first, and all three shrank at least five inches in length after drying. Not so much in terms of width, just length. I just stick to the BB polos now, a lot less shrinking and cheaper as well.
