How do I put the link in my sig area?
mailroom was nice to me today as i received my 2nd shipment of RL
makes a Monday go by soo much better
also can anyone tell me if the Loak Captial last is wider up top than the 026?
I can't speak for the 026 last but I bought a pair of Strands (capital last) and they have a lot of room through the vamp. I was actually wondering if anyone had any advise to solve this? I'm thinking a simple insert will do the trick. Does anyone have other suggestions?
Thanks guys.. gives me something else to consider. Will have at look at these suggestions and see what I come up with!
Could be interested in having a look at these..
Do you have room on top of your feet then? I find that they have a bit of space on the sides, foot is still kept in its place, but on top and heel are nice and snug. Then again I do have a somewhat high instep.
Yes, there's room on top of my feet - however the sides feel fine to me. Possibly my duck feet...
The shoes is still kept in place but I'm worried about excessive creasing. Of course, I don't mind a little (obviously unavoidable) but with the amount of room I have I get the feeling the shoe will look like it's been folded in-half after a few wears.
Just got a call from my mate. He had shoes sent from Herring, one pair was wrong size, their mistake. Postage back as required by Herring, include insurance, $70. Yes $70. Without insurance ~$60.
Luckily Herring will reimburse postage as it is their error.
Need to set up a shoe trying on share arrangement!
Anyone got a UK 8.5 G I can try on for size?
Please do. I'd be curious to see their work

new wallet arrived today. my old wallet lasted me 10 years
California Dreamer pointed out to me that the website:: A Fine Pair of Shoes, has the sole measurements of different shoes. Not a complete answer but useful . Would be handy If some young screen jockey with nothing to do at work, like say blahman, could collect them all into a spreadsheet with lasts shoe model brand etc.
Anyone in Brisbane interested in any Saphir products? I was thinking of ordering some Renovateur and maybe some polish from Valmour and if I could split some shipping with an interested party that would be swell. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.
anyone got tips on washing Merino wool?
i have a top that says hand wash only.
would getting it dry cleaned be easier?
Hand wash in cold water, no wringing, dry flat in shade.
If it says hand wash only, you should probably just hand wash it. I usually do my sweaters all at once, with some mild shampoo. Then I roll them up in multiple towels to get some of the water out, and leave to dry flat on a towel for a day. You can brush them with a horsehair brush occasionally too.
