    Hey tubes... welcome from a fellow Oz denizen.

    4x the price? Lemme guess, would it be Parker & Co that you saw those shoes?

    I hear the Carmina e-store is pretty reasonably priced (ex VAT of course), in the vicinity of $350 to $500+ for a decent pair of shoes. The problem, as you surmised, is knowing which last fits you.

    Do you at least know your UK sizing in a wide-lasted shoe? E.g. the C&J Westfield.

    Hahaha, yeah. I just have to convince the boss to let me off for long enough. Maybe later this year :nodding:

    You are correct, Parker & Co. Nice belts & cuff links, but quite expensive.
    Sorry, don't know about UK sizing :-/
    I'm an Aus 12 if that helps.

    Well it seems my last outfit wasn´t to everybody's taste. I will keep wearing my navy blazer with gold buttons paired with denim and tie.

    Today will include outdoor activities so I am wearing:
    Barbour Beaufort.
    Brown merino pullover from Boomerang.
    Light blue shirt from The Shirt Factory.
    Vintage wool tie. Made in Western Germany...
    Levi´s 511.
    RL cordovan brogues.

    Boring and wrong. Clearly some jackets and some ties don't work with jeans or other trousers that might originally have been workwear, but with a jacket with enough texture or pattern and a casual knitted tie, and the confidence to carry it off, it can be excellent. It can even work well with smoother jackets and ties (despite what Vox might say), but I am not sure it does here. I can't really see enough of the overall fit to tell though.

    I think I'll be in the minority here, especially since I mostly post on the other side of the forum, but I think if you're wearing jeans a tie seems so superfluous. Not that it can't be done, but just like a scarf without a jacket it's very hard to overcome the appearance of what the tie is - an affected accessory.

    I must say, though I wear bows frequently, that it looks out of place here.
    I would wear a tie here + a PS. A plain wool tie would look great.
