I wouldn't mind adding a darker brown suede pair of dubs to the rotation at some point.
It will live on forever in your quote, as it should.
Yep, I expected that from Cleav. He wears them very often and very well.
Time for a cigarette then, Cleav?
Oh dear lawd
Buddy, very kind. Just to tease out the point my EG, Lobb and C&J dm's are sleek enough and perfectly suited to a reasonable rotation but I would't wear em with a casual fit. Too sleek.
These i would because the scotch grain and double soul give me a different flexibility to wear with a SC or jeans/cords/chinos
I'd never wear them with a suit, personal preference...
I disagree man. The damage is also accumulative and black eyes or no. I have done a fair bit of boxing, muay Thai and Mma and dont really spar anymore due to this. Now i just grapple, bjj, judo, wrestling. Can't remember the last time I was injury free though and haven't trained for a while due to various niggles.
@lukejackson like I said it all depends on the environment you train in and intensity . I definitely agree though if you're not comfortable don't do it.
Did I hear carmina double monks for sale?
I have (had?) a pair...Simpson 10.5
Only wish that were true. I did weights for over 20 years. Put muscle on everywhere except my shoulders. Focused more and more on shoulder exercises: seated lateral raises, seated upright presses, shoulder machines etc. Had gym instructors check my form. Ended up being able to press some serious weight, but shoulders remained stubbornly puny (although cut to shreds).
In the end I just gave up. I'm Puny Shoulder Man, and there's an end on't.
Don't sell them. Fabulous shoes. I invested a giant sum in some GG Mayfairs in mid brown calf and they are my most elegant shoes. Would wear them with just about anything.
Cleav summed it up. They are more versatile than you would think. Chinos to suits...
Been gradually trawling through that "who is Voxsartoria?" thread, which is mostly nonsense, but I came across a reference to one Spoxsartorifoo, and thought that was pretty funny.
I think dubs are awesome because they're slightly more formal than loafers and as such work better work with suits.
Thanks for the comments, guys. Sounds like I should hold onto them.
