    looking for a reason not to buy it

    do explain in more detail. always like getting your opinion

    What if I had it resoled on dainite? (Guess at that price point of $565 + $100 resole it's better to just go MTO...)

    I did! I liked them.


    You would.

    No, I have no idea what I mean by that. I just wanted to say it.

    stitchy, once again proving that he sees all of the forum. Even when he's away for passover.

    Some Edward Green boots and some derbies from Jala Sriwijaya.

    I say go Jalan. I know you dislike cheap shoes (and these come in around 350 USD) but they are much nicer than either AE or Meermin. Think Meermin's design sense with AE's durability. Plus much better QC.

    Edit: No, just Kakaotalk. A messaging service everyone here uses. He asks me about clothing, I ask him about shoes.

    Also, I think I'm going to get one of these for frequent use:

    Definitely don't like the commando sole on anything other than boots. Not worth it if you are just going to re-sole...MTO or find another RTW from another vendor.

    clagster, im not a boot or longwing guy.

    I think my favorite style for a derby is a punchcap, "alt wien" or a shortwing.

    Least favorite derby styles: longwings, plain toe (exception: I might consider a tobacco suede or tan buck)
