    Gents,
    I thought I would post this here first before heading to eBay etc. I'm looking to sell my slightly worn Enzo Bonafe seamless black oxfords. This pair is one of the classiest interpretations of the black oxford I have seen going around IMO. Unfortunately they are half a size too big for me. Details as follows; 9.5 uk, 74945 last, condition as per pictures- probably 3 wears. There are some stock skoak photos below to give an understanding of how the shoes actually look, apologies for the poor quality cell photos. Selling new for about $720, happy to offload them for $500, shipping extra.

    Wouldn't think it would be hard, but might be tricky matching the exact colour - especially if for worsted wool.

    Maybe time to rock a pair of suspenders!

    I own a pair of EB's and for the price this is a grouse deal. Easily as good as Vass

    Yes. I had this done to a RL Black Label suit that had no belt loops. The fabric from the unhemmed trousers was enough to create the loops.

    This thread was once such stuff as dreams were made on.

    Now it is rounded by a little sleep.

    Courtesy of Mrs GF I have discovered that Eucalyptus oil is a fantastic stain remover. Now I will quietly return to my slumbers.

    The sequel is never as good as the original.

    (Except for Terminator 2.)

    Gents , what's your thoughts on belstaff trailmaster/ roadmaster? I plan to wear it over a suit occasionally. Quite expensive jacket.
    Trailmaster aka tourist trophy is the heavy 10oz fabric with removable d3o armour & removeable vest . roadmaster is the fashion line with 6oz fabric. Which would be a better choice? Also colour wise would you pick olive green or mahagony brown? FYI I have a Barbour in olive green. Thanks in advance for your contributions.

    If you like that sort of thing (I don't go duckshooting) I think that Sydney idiot PoP has something as good from an Oz place for 20% of the price.

    Gerry is on the money - though I have the 'Settler' jacket, which is essentially the Biker jacket without the elbow and shoulder padding: http://www.australiangear.com/australian-clothing/burke-and-wills-the-settler-oilskin-coat.html. It also comes in brown not black.

    Personally I don't go much for wearing these type of jackets over suits though, they are casual jackets and look best with a chunky jumper and jeans or moleskins IMO. I'll wear a trench coat over a suit in the winter.

    Likewise I wouldn't pay $900 or whatever a Belstaff costs these days for essentially a casual, functional coat, that you would only wear occasionally. But for $160 I can't fault the B&W jacket - it's waterproof and warmer than most Barbours - it's 12oz cotton canvas whereas Barbour's heaviest jackets are about 8oz I think. They are designed to fit over a jumper and allow ease of movement, so its not going to give you a 'fitted' look like a Belstaff, and they can be a tiny bit oily when new, though this will wear off pretty quickly - just make sure the oil doesn't rub off on your white jeans (not that anyone here would wear those...)
