I think robert old 1909 has them
Have you looked here Doodals? As posted earlier http://www.crockettandjones.com/news/index/james-bond-skyfall-crockett-and-jones#.U-0lZVboY_M
Cleav, your picture reminds me that I've been looking for an answer: Shouldn't the sides come together when laced? Both on open- and closed-lacing shoes? My understanding is that the V indicated a less-than-optimal fit.
(No disrespect to you or your shoes; I have some which do and some which don't)
V does not bother me. As long as the shoes fit comfortably I think it's fine. I'm sure others are more OCD about this, though.
I agree with this. Then again I am probably less OCD than some on here.
Fair point Shugz, I hear both sides and I have some do and (few) don't. Personally I reach for a v more often, not coz a that but I like that pair o kicks more and I enjoy the fit better, oh well
Thanks for the advice. I'm a 10UK.
Barneys, Robert Old and C&J direct.....missed Cleav's advice earlier about going direct. So I guess they aren't that hard to find after all. Barney and RO are the same price.
I tried on NMWA, no response. Figure I'd try the Noodlers, who typically bend over backwards to help a brutha out. To whit: how wide, measured perpendicular, is the Formosa lapel?
I know you know. You know you know. You know who you are.
I dont know what measurement you are asking for.
I'm probably a few steps behind you in the process. I'm still at the point where I see $630 from Robert Old and $750 from Barneys and say no way I'm paying that for a calfskin boot. Yet, I look at the cheaper options and don't get the same warm fuzzies and begin to rationalize the purchase for the Islays because I've got all my staples (and then some) covered and I should just get what I want since I'm only buying one boot. I just won't tell the wife what they cost when she asks ("Honey, they were on sale for $250.").
If you go the direct route, pm me what the cost is.
Thank you, both, for the feedback. While thinking about whether the brown is too dark, I browsed some more sites to see if there were any better options. My apologies if this is rehashing much of the beginning of this thread, but I am going through everything piecemeal and am just hitting on the tie discussion that started it all. Your .thoughts would be very helpful.
I've picked out several lighter options that I'm hoping would work with my worsted navy and charcoal suits. Some of this is an exercise to see if I can pick out "beginner CBD" appropriate ties, but also I do need to pick up one or two more ties in the next few weeks. I am currently with just navy and chocolate grenadines from Chipp.
After VAT is deducted, there is still a 75gbp tax that is tacked on at checkout. I'm with ya, it's tough to fork out that much for a calf boot...unless we were taking Galways or Shannon's. I'm glad I don't like shell...
Most things that have an MSRP of under $1000 I get nervous that they are crappy.
