Got the Berg & Berg white flannel trousers. They seem quite nice. Need to get them hemmed of course. I’m sure the Fox flannel pants would have been superb but these will do nicely. Amusingly I have flannel pants from Rota, Zegna, Canali, Paul Stuart and Hickey Freeman but my favs are a pair of mid-gray pants from Barneys house brand. Best fitting and most comfy pants I own.I have never bought anything from Berg & Berg, do report back how it is!
Does anyone know who makes drakes crosby Chukka? Its is made in Italy and looks very similar to the astorflex dukeflex.
And do you think this style is more versatile than a "normal" suede Chukka Boot?
Yeah, I have a cashmere sport coat from barneys by Caruso from about 10 years ago. Simply amazing. The pants are about that old as well. Not sure who made them.Barneys house brand has up and down (BG was at least consistent), without looking at individual label it was hard to blind buy Barneys (well when it was around) house brand...
I mean Barneys house brand had Caruso made it own suit as well some god knows what...
I think the dukeflex looks better in pictures, but i dont have a local shop to look at either. Im also a bit concerned about the sole.I don't know that they're more versatile. The original Clarks desert boot is pretty hard to beat in that way. I almost bought those Drake's boots based on pictures, but was glad I waited to see them in person. They were nice, but felt pretty flimsy to me. Sole looks substantial in pictures, but it seemed too thin on the actual boots. I like that Dukeflex boot, too, but have never seen it in person.
Thank you, the leather on the drakes does look a bit more luxe. I was planning to pick up a pair of regular chukkas, but recently I find anything with a stitched toe more interesting. But yes, these are more casual.I was told by an industry source that these are made by Astroflex but using a custom last and specs for Drake's. I know the fit of the Astroflex branded desert boot and the Drake's branded desert boot is different because I tried both on and own the Drakes.
More versatile than a normal suede Chukka boot? IMO, a regular suede chukka with a leather or Dianite sole looks more shaped and styled so it can be "dressed up" a bit more. This one looks great but in a bit more relaxed way. The crepe rubber sole will always look more casual, which is fine if that is your style.
Yukio is a legend. And really nice. If you haven’t already, get Jaime Ferguson’s book THIS GUY because it has phenomenal photos of the dude (my favorites in the book, actually) and an interesting story of the man. I have a funny yukio/liverano story I’ll share that’s not in the book if I get the OK from Jaime.Yukio Akamine all-time MVP. David Coggins always looking a lil kooky, but I like it. People don't talk enough about how beautiful Mark Cho's hair is. Andy 57's cream jacket is nice. The people's champ, Dick Carroll not present?
