    From what I can see of Don Cologne's shirt, it's not a plain Oxford cloth, but what I have seen termed "royal Oxford", which I've seen made RTW with French/double cuffs - a more luxurious version of OC. I think that the shirt is just fine.

    I didn't say Don's shirt was formal, nor did I say there was anything wrong about it. I just said it looked odd to me, and I didn't care for it. That is an opinion, not a judgment on whether or not it right or wrong.

    Don't like that shirt in general, but on the whole not bad.

    Were this just a normal light blue striped shirt (say, a candy stripe) it would be quite good.

    He absolutely enjoys the abuse. I suspect he may be into leather as well. Notice he never shows his pants? It's because he's wearing assless leather chaps.

    The knot and the concept as a whole are solid. Agree with aravenel about the shirt.

    Oxxford clothes.

    And here a little bonus shot. Yesterday a TKmaxx store opened in my town and the only workable pair of shoes in my size was this Florsheim Imperial Norwegian. I was searching a long time for exactly a pair of shoes like these ones:

    Compared to the Allen Edmonds Cambridge I weared before, which pair of shoes you prefer with a grey flanell trouser?

    I can confirm this. He bought my old ones...i thought it was strange that he specifically asked for a used pair. Oh well..he paid top dollar...even more than i was asking. Thanks Rudals!!:slayer:

    the wingtips look 100000x better. The top pair looks like cheap leather.

    I bought it an hour ago and what the shoe needs is some cream and some layers of Wax. After the finish it will look better. Leather is fine in my opinion and I think the deep shining sun strenghten your impression of a cheap leather.
