The bentivegna had me curious so I had to look it up and I'm even more confused. I'll just put in the category of something like norvegese but Italian-based. I guess I'll browse and play it by ear. Thanks for the input.
Had a similar experience with C&J NY.
Well, sorry to get all but norvegese is Italian based.
Doh, I had assumed they were Norwegian based. But don't let d*3 hear me, it'll just confirm to him that I'm not a real card carrying boot guy.
How fucking good are boots though. I spend a lot of my time at a University(CompSci study and Soft Dev teaching) or working in IT.
Boots. Jeans, and OCBD's all day every day!
Not sandles w/ white socks? Or birkenstock wannabe?
Nah, Jeans, OCBD's(Usually sky blue) and boots. I'll throw on either my TOJ Varisty, or Barbour Bedale SL over the top. Often with a thin grey merino knit or heavier Donegal blue(with white) or grey knit.
The only way I can really see improving this is going bespoke which I plan to do but I'm going to the gym pretty regularly, so I'll hold off for a year or so until my body becomes 'stable'.
I'd really like to grab a bespoke Balmaccan(or some sort of warmer coat), an Aero Board Racer in dark whiskey calf, as well as replace shirts with bespoke ones, but I'll wait a while before doing that.

No worries, that was confirmed long ago. LOL
D, have you received your Thorpe's yet?
No, unfortunately not. Based on the Last tracking I very much doubt that I will receive them before Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
Anyone here own cordovan shoes or boots from suit supply? I ordered their wingtip boots and they fit me well. The quality seems ok. Buy I'm really not sure if they are worth 650. For that I can spend a little more and get an alden or spend a few hundred more and get a C & J. Please let me know your thoughts. Here are some phone pics:
Thanks in advance!
