    My C&J Monkton single monks have been complemented the most, actually three times now that I remember.

    But. Interesting to see if my new Cheaney boots (in fact Herring Langdale) will get more praise or not. Wearing them for the second time right now - no comments yet.

    Better gemmed (and stitched) than wood-pegged,
    if you want a 'spring in the step', that is!!!

    ??? Does that real man body come with the the projection bias, or will that cost more? I would also like to upgrade to a wooden heal and some extra-long wings. You know what I mean
    My favorite thing about Reevolving threaks is that they read as if an alien anthropologist has arrived on Earth a few days ago and is desperately attempting to study human customs. Make that a cranky alien anthropologist who hasn't slept or eaten much during his journey. I love it, though. Few things on SF are more entertaining than when a quasi-hostile party attempts to crowdsource his personal taste. Try not to think too hard about the incongruities inherent in a man who will wear only what he thinks others will like, but who holds others in general contempt. It's best to microwave a batch of popcorn and simply enjoy the show.

    Spring in step is good (welt shoe).
    Solid step shoe is good (wood peg).
    Best of both world.
    Both good.

    Before this turns into another "pick on reevolving" thread... These shoes of mine get the most compliments in casual wear.

    Fritzl, are you telling me you think the JLP marston is blunt nosed? I don't.


    my knowledge of lasts is sketchy at best but here goes:

    Not blunt nosed: JLP 8000, G&G TG73 (actually any G&G), maybe EG888 (? depends on photo) alot of the AS and many Cleverly lasts.

    Blunt nosed: most A&E, alden, alot of EG, most JLP St James, ect.................................

    Some invasions, however, will only be successful if the medallion is done in the style of the "Italian look."

    Since I only wear black shoes the average person doesn't tend to notice them as much. That said the only shoes with the smallest bit of color have gotten the most compliments:

    those are good looking shoes. Do you mind sharing the name of the maker?
