fuuma - you are the sartorial jacques cousteau, bringing these strange, mythical creatures out of the deep and into the light, diving into wrecked ships with a lamp, exploring the hold, and cracking open the barrels to liberate the goods that were left to rot
Thanks, now I feel like a crazy old man with a dream (that's good, right?)!!!
T4: My shoes are black chelsea boots from Charles Tyrwhitt, they used to have a 50% off for first time buyers and many forum members benefited from that offer. That being said, while they do the job perfectly well and I see no reason to replace them, I think RM Williams is a much better option, even if their offerings are more expensive; there's an excellent thread on the "men's forum" on RM Williams with plenty of links where they can be bought. I'd do a search for Tyrwhitt and rm Williams, these have been discussed a lot before. Again, if my chelseas died in an unfortunate lawnmower accident, I'd also look at offerings by:
"¢\tRaf Simons (love the rounded toe)
"¢\tJil Sander (I really like their footwear, now designed by Raf Simons)
"¢\tCostume National (some good deals can usually be found on ebay for costume)
