Oh, and one more thing. If anyone can identify the AE chukkas in the pic I'd love to find them in a D or E at some point. The ones I have are EEE, I just wear thick socks with them.

Hell, I could dance with combat boots on. But yes, you're right, they aren't ideal. Which is why I'm slowly building a collection of shoes and boots for different occasions. But women always love those shoes so it's always tempting to throw them on if I'm going somewhere where there's an abundance of them.

I decided to play this pandemic like a smart inmate plays prison by getting an education. Instead of letting it get me down, I want to come out the other end of it feeling great and looking great. I'm down about 15 pounds in the last couple months (that's a little under 7kg for those of you who live somewhere where measurements make sense). Once I get to my target weight I'll replace my entire wardrobe. And since shoes tie everything together I'll spend the next few months acquiring a variety.

That's excellent. I too have rearranged my schedule for fittness during these covid times.

Hello everyone, I'm Paul, 33 years old, born in Poland but living in the Netherlands since I was two years old.

In the last couple of years my interest in men's fashion started to grow (not fashion as in the latest trends), and I developed a love for shoes. I was a sneakerhead for a while, but when I started to dress more mature I started buying leather shoes and boots. Another passion of mine are military flight jackets, but at the moment I only own one high end repro.

I have many hobbies, and therefore I have to be careful with my spendings. And I'm hoping that through these forums I'll learn how I can get the best value for my money.

Hello everyone,

I am Darren, 49, from the UK.

Decided to grow up and ditch the sneakers, jeans and sweats look (with a penchant for adidas originals sneakers). I've always had to wear business dress at the office, until lockdown anyway. Basically, my shoes consisted of black work shoes and sneakers.

Casually, I now prefer boots, brogues, selvedge denim, cords, ocbd's, with a slight 'workwear' vibe. My interest in mens fashion has developed over the last couple of years, as i have wanted to smarten up a little, but retain some personality.

Formal shoe collection is mainly Grenson and Cheaney, plus Allen Edmonds. Casually, I love Grenson boots, Red Wings (don't hate me!!), Loake. Always looking for ideas and opinions on brands, styles, quality etc.

Cheers

Hi all,

Bit of a crusty here from the UK ....67.

Never had much of an interest in fashion as such, have always preferred the timeless style. Always had to wear suits for work but since retiring 5 yrs ago i now only have 2...1 for weddings and 1 for funerals :)

Pleased to have found the forum and will endeavour to both make use of and contribute.

Cheers.

APB here - lurking for a bit, decided to dip a toe in and register.

Recently renewed interest in clothing/style, finding that I like more and more things I never thought I would. Afraid this might just be the start... we'll see what happens ;)
