I picked up a made in Scotland, double-sided, merino wool scarf and some boot laces during the sale. I think the scarf will go well with my A-2 bomber. The color is “oat” but there’s some olive, gold and grey in there too. It’s a houndstooth pattern with a whimsical skull and cross bones. Not a big purchase but I’m very happy with it.

should I buy #8 landon or chili Landon?

View attachment 1484760

I already have HM in both colors and my #8 HM are pretty casual with the natural welt but I am leaning towards chili landon.

Burgundy and Chili are really interesting to decide between. Chili is a lot more brown and red and should go more casually.

Speaking of black shoes (I know; late to the party), I decided to feature the Hopkinsons today:

20201026_hopkinsons.jpg


I started out wearing a different pair of shoes, but I'd forgotten the first rule of the true shoe-hound; the outfit should match the shoes, not the other way around. The shoes I had on were all wrong for the outfit I chose (grey flannel and OCBD), and rather than start over, I thought it'd be easier to just change the shoes to match the outfit. So I did.

I’ve been wearing my Daltons, Williamsburgs, and Hamiltons pretty frequently over the past couple of weeks and I am fearing that my brogues (McAllisters, Strands, and Fifth Aves) will stop getting worn.

My boots are just more comfortable, and I think I know why. As the heel of my foot has molded the beds, I think my heel has sunk down a little which has allowed for my ankle bone to rub against the sides. Any suggestions? I’m thinking about putting some renovateur on the areas that are rubbing to try to soften them up, but I’m not hopeful it will really accomplish anything. I also got some wool socks from AE that are thicker than the wool ones I have from Brooks Brothers, but the difference isn’t that noticeable.
Bump!

Cold and rainy, but it's the first day in the new role so all is good!

Congrats! And if I recall correctly, this co. you joined not too long ago?
Thank you! Yes it was! Late last year and got out of training in March. Really been a good time so far.

Nice new profile picture by the way :)

I don’t wear them with suits or tailored trousers, but love them with 5 pocket cords and denim.
Those are beautiful. I love, love brown shell and with this boot it just knocks it out of the park.

Sounds like the throat is too tall for your foot. Does the shoe fit correctly elsewhere? Being 65 lasted shoes you mention makes it harder, and I would really consider if the shoes are ideally sized. I had that issue with the 201 last, and just flexing the side of the throat where it made contact allowed it to lay down enough to not be painful. The rest of the shoe was a compromise fit, so I no longer have any 201 lasted shoes. You could put an insert in (at least at the heel) to raise your foot up a bit if you are sure you have best fit elsewhere in the shoe.

Mid-30s and snowing in my neck of the woods. Felt like an appropriate day for shell HMs and cheapo Costco fleece-lined jeans that I'm too lazy to get hemmed for a more proper fit, since I'm the furnace police at our house and it doesn't get turned on until it gets tuned up (this Friday!).

Hadn't worn the burgundy shell HMs in about 10 days or so. Here's the amount of bloom I usually get on them during their time hanging out in the closet.

Here they are standing in the melted remnants of our first snowfall this season. Haunted by the memory of what once seemed pure and magical, yet also entirely inappropriate for the calendar. Fortunately, the garage/workshop has a separate heating system, so I can crank that mofo up tonight and do some work out there while I listen to the Bears (hopefully) take one away from the Rams.

Here is one you don’t see everyday (which is ironic considering the name):

These are vintage AE “Tom, Dick, and Harry.”

I bought them from a great eBay seller who is also one of our members.

Someone else on the vintage dress shoe thread found an old AE Catalog that showed the age.

They are in exceptional condition. They appear to have been worn once or twice. Unfortunately for me, they are too long and wide for me now. They are 11.5D if anyone is interested.

Ok, I see the Dick on the shoes, but where is the Tom or Harry?
