What if I say this model called "Doctor Lecter"? Will people still talk shit behind my back?

looks like they were on the losing end of a fight with a nail gun.

It must have been a slow day at the piercing and tatoo parlor!

I agree, it's a strange attraction.

I was once very close to pulling the trigger on a Missoni 4 Button SB suit.

It was early in my SF membership. I was advised (very nicely), not to do it, and that I would later regret it.

I listened to the advice and didn't get the 4 Button suit! I'm glad I didn't.

My advice is to pass on these shoes. Were you to get them , you would later regret it!

I like them, but then I bought your Beguelin double monks with the rivets in them. If you're going to buy these, get a size 7 this time.


What I'm actually concerned about is someone from Boston being "strangly" attracted to anything. Please tell me your real name isn't Albert.

I love the classic brogue, but have to say that these are a little 'different' for my taste.
Most of the shoe looks great and I love the colour, but Im not too keen on the toe cap detail. They strike me as a pair of shoes you may like now, but will be found languishing in the back of the wardrobe this time next year.

Too different for my taste.

Now, if you're sporting a suit that has rivet detailing, like rivets at the corner of your patch pockets, then maybe you have something.

Or if you yourself are sporting rivets at the neck.

aside from the rivets (WTF?), it's a beautiful looking shoe. and judging by what Testonis normally retail for (~$400) at the super-discounter, STP, they do look to be a good deal if you were to buy them.

that being said, what would you possibly wear them with.

I agree with Leaveit and gamelan. Except for the rivets, those are nice-looking shoes.

However, the rivets can't be ignored. Like the elephant in the room.
