    Those are nice! Good starting rule of thumb for suits or dress pants is to wear socks close to the same color as your pants to make you look taller.

    I personally ended up matching up sock thickness with shoe fit. 511 last gets thick knits, 65 and 333 lasts get thin dress socks. Etc.

    Friday! Going warm today since they're predicting lots of snow before this afternoon.

    A wonderfully warm vintage wool sweater from my father and burgundy shell Leeds. A little pep in my step before the weekend!

    It is a good fit. Actually, I like oxfords more because they have less give in the front of the foot, where there is no orthotic usually. This is a good shoe though—top-quality suede. White socks pictured better here with Luxire pants:

    I love the lacing pattern here. What method is that? Are these Stirling?

    Cronmok, second release. I also have the lighter brown from the first run.
    Thanks. It's the straight euro lacing. I pretty well do it on all of my shoes and boots as I get full closure and it laces easy. https://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/straighteuropeanlacing.htm
    These are from a few years ago and are indeed the Cronmok. They are on the 65 with combi soles and poron. They're unlined and have a bit different pattern from their spiritual successor the Sterling. The first run came in a tan, brown, and a paler blue that are uber buttery soft. The second run of them are still unlined, but the CXL is just stiffer. Still not as stiff as those freaking Sterlings though!

    Probably gonna re lace these bad boys. Not sure about the over under for these boots. In love with moccasin construction though...

    So I have a marathon in 9 days, which of COURSE means I would drop a book on my big toe and rip the hell out of my cuticle last night. All terrain suede socks for comfort on “‘f***ing really?!’ Friday”:

    Wow these look really nice! I wouldn’t mind owning a pair for the summer later this year!

    I wish AE offered more boots. There’s so many that I missed out on because I got into the brand so late. Seeing all these old models and then the MTO thread makes me extra jealous of some of you. Haha
