Whens this dollar gonna go back up
Was around $20ish but for me it adds way more life than that.
Yeah the one pair I have with caps has worn a lot less, $20 seems good
Interesting story from The Guardian on Sir Montague Burton (born Meshe Osinky in Latvia in the late 19th century), who at one time owned the largest maker of bespoke and made-to-order clothing in the world. Pretty much every man in Britain owned a Burton suit at one time or another.
PSA - I ordered some Miserocchi loafers from Finaest.com two months ago and still have not received them.
They originally advised I would have to wait 8 days for them to be made and that they would ship out directly to me. I've emailed them probably a dozen times now with only 2 replies both times were copied responses I'm assuming which said the shipment would be sent by end of week.
Save your dollars.
Good to see Chelsea legend Claudio Ranieri bring decent knots and lapel width(as well as class football) to England.
I am so very much looking forward to having an Italian in charge at The Bridge next season.
No need for a lottery- You can get Shurons in any almost kind of variations and sizes - basically customised - bridge width , lens width, temples length, hinge to hinge, full front width and lens height.
Priorities - with an Ambrosi trouser - 5 year wait and wrong size - plus ToJ leather jacket - lifetime wait - you'll get any girl you want - guaranteed.
See this bloke - with his Ambrosi trousers - 2 years wait for wrong fit - + ToJ jacket - not yet visible - he gets all the girls...see him waiting for his ToJ jacket.....
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
I'm curious - who has people looking at the soles of their shoes?
Can I ask where at? I've got some Tart frames I've been using for everyday but I like some of Shurons stuff too.
True. I know my 'size'. Sometimes glasses don't suit my face whether they fit me or not.
His wife bought him a green Hermes breast wallet - he's not doing too badly.
Quote: ~$100 including 2-way postage.
Hopefully that's a joke and no-one would actually, ever, in real life, send their shoes from one city to another so as to have flush toe-taps fitted.
As I mentioned just a few posts back:
I think if someone has spent X hundreds of dollars on their EG's or CJ's, AND they really wanted the look of flush toe taps, they WOULD spend 100 bucks and ship their shoes interstate. It's quite reasonable to get the desired aesthetic, and I don't get what the joke is. The words "cheap and durable" do not factor into the equation, and looking better while achieving desired function is arguably better performance.
Also, can't help but feel that the author of that guardian article on Burton's owner has some element of antisemitism in his writing... Can't quite put my finger on it...
Don't think I would blow $100 just to get flush taps. If you're ordering new shoes from DM though it's a no brainer.
Tend to agree with iSurg though, if you're spending $1500 on a pair of shoes what's another $100 to protect the (sometimes) fastest wearing part of the shoe.
