    In response to Sir F, who wrote: "The collar on the shirt looks strange, change the shirt. Otherwise it's quit nice :)!"

    Thanks for the comment. Yes, indeed, the collar, in that shot, is not sitting right. It is an English spread that was misbehaving.

    I love the Carmina cap toes I've seen in this thread and have almost pulled the trigger on a pair myself. What stops me is the large gap along the top of each foot where the laces seem unable to pull the leather pieces together. I dislike that. At first I thought it was just one member who purchased a size (or two) too small, but I'm pretty sure I've seen it now on every pair of Carminas featured in WAYWRN -- on the Simpson last, that is.

    Wouldn't that depend on how high your instep is?
    I have a relatively low instep - not much of a problem for me. But I guess we'll find out when I pull the trigger on a pair :D

    Just go one size wider and pull them taught. It's really a small price to pay for such a clean look...

    Hey Mr. Oldog,

    I always wanted to know do you use real flowers for your accessory? I actually really like the look and might start wearing real flower everytime I put a jacket or blazer on

    Try spending more than an hour with my family, and especially my mother, you'd have veins poppin out your head as well. Read my second to last blog post (in my sig) for more insight...

    I think flowers and firing are antithetical. And yes, my flowers are always real, though I loved the wadded-up cellophane tape flower that PG's neice once made and stuck on his lapel.

    I might start wearing one for summer jobs, obviously not for interviews :)

    You earn my respect by using real flowers, not worry about bees?

    Unfortunately with the Carminas there are no widths, just different lasts that are wider or thinner and the simpson as you may know is the narrowest of them all. My simpson lasted Carminas which I have on today are Derbies so don't do this on the lacing. My robert last oxford captoes are wider and dont do it at all on the left shoe and have an ever so slight gap on the right at the top of the lacing, but they are still very comfortable. Spoos definitely look too tight across the top but then he has quite a few simpson last if I remember correctly, so they may still be stretching a bit if they are new.
