    I think a grey windowpane can work for an SC. However, a navy windowpane looks funny. Stitchy and clags will agree with me on that one.

    Just realize that it won't be very versatile. That's the knock against non-tweed grey SCs. Tends to work best with lighter gray pants

    The Jermyn II was the grail shoe when I joined the forum.

    Because they're essentially whole-cuts I think monks can sometimes look shapeless on the foot. Right now I'm going thru a love (single) monk phase.

    You'll have to stop by The Armoury when you're in HK. I'm still a bit sad that I wasn't able to when I was in NYC.

    Lovely fabric. It's versatile when you have pants in shades of brown (from beige to chocolate brown) or textured blue. I won't wear it with light grey pants (unless u have stone colored pants) since the fabric appears light already, maybe darker gray or charcoal. I own something similar

    Yeah, it's a gorgeous shoe, but I'd call that dressy and formal and say that it would look weird in pebble grain even if it was a dub monk. I'm not a huge fan of whole cuts though, I really don't like how they crease which is why I sold the one pair of shell PTB's I had. Yeah, they're not wholecuts, but it's the lack of atleast a captoe. Doesn't quite do it for me.

    I'm afraid that SF has thrown me to the other end of the taste spectrum from when I first started ahhahaha.

    Thanks!

    Are repps and solid grens usually the best go to's for interviews?

    I have a few neats I really like that I think I'd prefer, but I really like the more subdued look for interviews.

    I assume he was referring to this earlier post as "the drop" is the point at which the bass hits in dubstep and the rhythm changes.

    Somebody's hip to the new jive lingo, though I was only referencing the statement rather than referring to said post as the drop.
