    Dark Brown suede. After watching the conversation on here for a few weeks and taking in the advice of Pink Socks etc these were the ones I landed on, have waited a year to make a decision!!! I liked the toe of the Tetbury, rounded toes just dont do it for me. Each of my Church's are the Sheldon model, similar kind of square toe. Will be interesting to see what the old Zegna's are like.

    Be interested in reading your thoughts once they arrive.

    Classic! I have the Chilterns in snuff suede on the way. Yes, that Pink Socks fellow has a lot to answer for [​IMG]

    Sorry....on the same thing I think I am going to order (and wait the 6-8 weeks for) the Chukka in dark brown suede from Robert Old. Most sources say size up half a size for narrow width but noone has the 10, only 9.5. Oh well, patience is a virtue...

    Waiting... waiting.

    Seems like we're always waiting for something.

    Still waiting for P Johnson No. 4 - Casual suit in French Navy worsted.

    Can't stand waiting...

    Arggghhhhhhh!!!

    Embarrassingly I own more shoes than my wife, not to mention more expensive shoes. That ain't right! As to watches, although I try to subscribe to the 'buy one, sell one' rule, I envitably trade up when I purchase a new watch, so the transaction is not without cost to me. I currently have an El Primero on the way which I am going to have to explain! On the other hand (pun not intended), I recently traded my ref 14060M Sub for a ref 5513, and my wife hasn't realised - nor do I expect she probably ever will! :devil:

    Patience. All good things come to those that wait. Case in point:

    I agree on a purely conceptual level... but reality's a pain eh? :D

    Agony isn't it :)
    Four is my PJohnson limit for now, and I think we double up on the same Loro Piana Four Seasons grey glen check and light navy sharkskins from what I've seen in your pictures. From there we diverge and narrowly escape finger pointing and mumbling, lucky we live in different cities. Excellent taste you have though I must say :).

    Congrats on the El Primero! Try replacing the 5513 with a 16613 - I bet she'll notice then [​IMG]

    Cheers. I'll post a pic or two on the Watch P0rn thread when it arrives. I went for the 38 mm El Primero with tri-colour overlapping subdials, very similar to the vintage A386. I am not taking a chance with the 16613 - just as well I prefer the non-date version!

    It may just be me - but I found this equally apalling and extremely funny...

    A day in the life of Karl Lagefeld...

    "....I never have lunch, but when I do, I ask them to bring it to me in the house. I actually have two houses. This house here, it's only for sleeping and sketching, and I have another house two-and-a-half meters away for lunch and dinner and to see people, and where the cook is and all that. ..."
