Surely this was in reference to Yanks...septic tanks...seppos
I wasn't belittling him, I still don't know how to tie a four in hand! I just got a little arced up when he name dropped, reminds me too much of whirlpool. I will now return into my hole.
Since Prince of Paisley is quite active these past few pages, does anyone else see David Hasselhoff in his avatar?
If you wouldn't say it to someone's face IRL, it's probably not a good idea to hit 'submit'.
Probably would, I'm a real bastard.
I would too to be honest.

I feel like I started something that got a bit out of hand here... time to agree to disagree.
For what it's worth I like AEs because I don't like a chisel toe - this seems to be the essential difference between most of their shoes and the Euro styles posted here. The small toe cap... meh I don't really see it. Couple of mm difference at most. I think toe caps look small on bigger size shoes because (and I could very well be wrong, just going off a hazy memory here) most manufacturers put on the same size toe cap no matter the length of the shoe. I think AE does anyway, so what the perceived size of the toe cap will vary according to shoe size....
To those asking earlier I don't actually own the AEs I posted - they are owned by another member patrick_b who knows his shit when it comes to polishing as you can see.
Personally I own the Park Ave in Black & Merlot, Fifth Ave in burnished brown (an amazingly deep colour in person, probably my favourite), Tresana in cabernet brown (the brown shoe in the earler pics I posted this is actually from AEs made in Italy Seven line which does have a chisel toe) and the Bayfield boot in black (the boot from Titanic...).
Anyway, on another note, after the initial run of interest the SF wiki has been forgotten. Please check it out and contribute what you can. I think if everyone here put in a favourite store or tip we'd be golden. It only takes a few minutes to sign up. I've already learnt about a few stores I didn't know about just from looking at the Melbourne page.

Thoughts on these Wangs?
And I'm totally waiting for fxh's input.
On a different note entirely...
Because I'm a sheep who does more or less what the internet tells him, I recently bought a couple of pairs of cotton-linen trousers on sale (you really can't start planning for summer too early). They were the ones touted here:
...And they look like this (I got a navy pair as well):
Any thoughts on what to wear these with? I'm a bit scared of the light-coloured pair; they're nearly white. I'd like to wear them to work (I work for the govt so no dress code to speak of) and also for smart casual.
Here's what I'm thinking for work wear:
- Suede or mid-brown loafers
- Tan bluchers
- Socks (no me gusta formal shoes without socks)
- White or light blue oxford, preferably BD
- Casual tie perhaps
- Light linen or wool odd jacket, nothing too hard-finished
And as casual wear:
- Boat shoes (no socks of course)
- Driving mocs (no socks of course)
- Striped/patterned (madras?) shirt, cotton or linen
- Polo shirt at minimum
- No jacket or tie

Good! But what about the fact that I'm an intern at XYZ Co and like Park Avenues? Come on man you're barely trying!
