Up until SF I never "thrifted", but I saw these today & I had to get them.. Now I don't know how to wear them as I have never bought anything of this style (all my shoes have been sleek not chunky).

Other than with jeans or chinos, I was thinking I may be able to wear them with my suits when it is cooler?

HELP! GetSmart I know you can help!

I will get my boot maker to give it a once over next week:
- New heels
- Rubber toe taps
- Leather conditioning

amazing boots, and would look great with jeans/chinos, an oxford bd shirt and a heavier sports coat (and a bow tie of course!).

nice find Guido!!

yea like what BoBo said...


pair them with heavier fabric suits (tweed, flannels etc) and oxford shirts. Don't wear em with light worsted wools or fine broadcloth type dress shirts.

I think they'd look great with some of your casual weekend looks that have some layering

imo needs to be worn with a no-break trouser (which you seem to lean towards anyways)

again, that's amazing you found those in thrift??!!

Fantastic thrift find, PG! Wish I could find some. Sounds like good advice above. GS is right, you want heavy and/or textured. Nothing flimsy. Think also English countryside.

Great pickup. I bought a pair of Stows in brown shell cordovan from the Tricker's store on Ebay a few weeks back. Absolutely loving them.

I've been wearing them with jeans, but you could definitely dress them up a bit.

- I was lucky as they never have anything in my size but every time I drop my stuff off they sell within the week!

Do they fit true to size? I've heard conflicting things.

- depends what your definition of true size is?
- very few of my brands have the same size..
- FWIW, I'm a UK or AU 7E, US 7.5, Todd's 6, Prada 7, Gucci 40.5, Paul Smith 7 & these are a 7.5 & they fit

In my experience, they run slightly large. I wear a US10.5 in all my Allen Edmonds, a UK9.5 in Paul Smith, and my Stows are UK9.5
