    Mark McNairy / Sanders / Yuketen for a decent option, Viberg and Tricker's for something nicer



    Suit supply or Brooks Brothers have options, you can look for steve smith here or collectme on eBay who will have outlet sits for cheap, usually defect is minor

    is it normal for guidi boots to have some damage out of the factory? ie. a few scuffs (broken skin) and dent marks in the toebox?

    would be for evening and weekend social wear , to the pub, bars, cinema, restaurants, shopping, out with friends/girlfriend

    You should consider getting a more versatile color like brown. Dessert boots in tan are also very nice (I own a pair myself).
    Black is commonly mistaken as an appropriate color but should be left for conservative occasions.

    looking at clarks desert boots ^^ they look similar but i think not as nice as chelsea boots


    again, trickers lambourn (below) and loakes (below) look very similar to chelsea boots

    I already have brown chukka boots which i wear when cold with my brown leather bomber jacket, i thought its best to always match jacket/coat with footwear color?

    i wanted black footwear for casual wear when wearing my black jersey single breasted coat.


    what do you guys think of brogue chelsea boots :

    recommendations for a oxford with a commando style sole? shoes will be worn mostly in bad weather but still need to look decent when i arrive at places. not looking to spend more than $350 since i prefer regular leather.

    ^ Loake Epsom or Grenson Curt. Unless by oxford you mean balmoral, but that would be weird.

    Ugly

    not looking for balmoral i have a pair leather soled already. the grenson i looked at i'm only seeing leather soled versions. loake doesn't look too bad but i rather would have bought something that is available in the usa easily. but if it comes down to it i guess i'll buy the loake as of now.

    I need to know the exact jacket and jeans Daniel Craig is wearing in this picture,
    and possibly where I could find them? Thanks. :)
    I believe the jeans are Levi, but that's all I know.
    Also, if someone knows links to the exact product I would be very thankful.

    And here is a gallery of more pics of him that day with same clothes:
