the churchills look great. what was the sizing like for the chamberlains?
my sizing depends on what type of shoe i'm wearing. boat shoes + casuals i wear a 9.5-10. pointed dress shoes 8/8.5. standard width.
As does mine.
I wear a 9UK which is a 43.25 EUR and I find they fit very nicely.
The 'F' is apparently the 'average' foot width for UK sizing - so I went with that for both pairs of my Cheaneys. Interestingly C&J have 'E' as their 'average' width so it will be interesting to see how I go with those.
What do you want to wear the shoes with? I am too conservative to wear my Chaimberlains with a navy suit - they seem to be just too light and contrasty.
Paul Zahra has no f#cking idea. That second floor is a case study on why Australian retail is f#cked.
Try Louisa in 151 Collins Street. They always seem to have some Church's and Trickers in store at 40-60% off, which would bring them down to your price range.
Try the loake 1880 range, had for around that price on pediwear and herring shoes. I have 2 pair and the older ones are getting on 4 years old with only a heel replacement so far. If I'm not mistaken dj's should have them in Perth to try on.
Thanks for checking the site out. Moving forward to next season should also see both a dark green and maroon grenadine added, both in 7 folds, won't be released until September though. The 7 folds are outselling the classic construction about 6 to 1 so far so I will likely be doing more and more of those in the future. Also planned for the next 12 months will be shirts and trousers (made in Italy most likely), saphir products (though they are very difficult to deal with) and possibly Carmina shoes, which are still a big question mark at this stage.
It shits me when DJ does selective price marking for sales. I was hoping the MJ Bale gear would be marked down. Sadly, they weren't.
Thanks gents, going to head to DJ's to try out some Loakes for sizing then hit up Herring!
That's usually per supplier request.
You should send that as a letter to The Age to show that its not all about 'online sales are killing Aussie jobs'.
I do Kung Fu on Thursday night.
I was hoping to try out my moves on blahman - but he chickened out.
Not much chance of getting published.
Who do you think takes out the most full page adverts in THE AGE and Friday glossy? DJs/Myers or Lands End/ Herring/Henry Carter Neck wear/Pret a Porter/ Asos/ etc etc ???
