    EG's haven't seen daylight in quite a while.
    I'm trying to be more formal with my trousers but I am about 15 pounds overweight these days, therefore I waste a lot of time in the morning trying on 5 or 6 pair until I find a pair that fit (barely) which makes me late for work (where nobody notices or cares what I'm wearing). So today I opted for EZ fit jeans. They are nice jeans though, Rag & Bone selvedge.
    Diet starts tomorrow (again)

    Ok. I am not wearing them to a business meeting, but they are the kind of shoes I would wear to parties and out with friends. Are those the Carmina Ghillie? And, I agree with Mr. Crust - it takes a set to pull them off.

    IMHO, I am fond of the wild side but I'm just not sure about these shoes. Too much going on? Color combo is nice but not fond of the medallion design or the ghillie lacing. But hey! to each his own. The trousers are fabulous. This is something you can pull off in Italy, France, Spain maybe, but in the good old USA (and probably merry old England) you would get funny looks. I do admire you "pushing the envelope?" :cool:

    Loving that gg flake esp the tan color.

    Forgot the name of this EG model it's not Chelsea but something like exmoor, elmsley or exeley. Esteemed member aportnoy told me once but I have since forgotten.

    D 202 dark oak (prefer E but these were an eBay score at price too good to pass up)

    No, for my first pair of tassels I went with a budget alternative, Meermin. Still very nice shoes though.

    I had these on my eBay watch list but was going to pass on them (because I buy too many damn shoes). In the last hour of the auction I did some research on Russian calf and decided that these were a must have. I was the only bidder and got them for a sweet price.
