Ah yes, some of my compatriots from gradeschool crossed the country to Andover.I agree with you. Staying stagnant when you’re very knowledgeable and interested in a subject is extremely difficult and requires a lot of discipline and perhaps a bit of lying to yourself. Going cheaper may be preferable since you still have your expensive pairs that you’ll appreciate more but it’s much more fun to go higher. I’m younger so I don’t have to worry about those expenses yet. I went to Phillips Academy and then college so I know a good American education is certainly expensive and there are definitely priorities that must be respected.
I feel you. I just built a new dining room.Mine is always either speeding up or staying at its rather ridiculous level. It's pretty much a given these days that the only version of anything I want that works for me also happens to be the more expensive version of that thing. (though I wish it weren't)
If it were, I wouldn't say - since I prefer all my donations to remain anonymous!I feel you. I just built a new dining room.
I'm waiting for my custom shoji doors, but the craftsman works out of like 1500sq ft and in front of me are the built ins for Hayato (downtown Michelin * restaurant), a giant goose carving for a prestigious west side private school, and Fergies entire fence.
The goose, the craftsman told me, was gifted by a Canadian donor. That you @Nobilis Animus ?
Interesting you went to Foster. Who was your fitter and lastmaker?I knew Foster and Son were closing their RTW business, but it seems that now even the bespoke portion is gone. That's a real shame - they were the best bespoke shoemaker I've tried, and I'm going to prize my pairs from them even more now.
I've never worn a white turtleneck, but I'd imagine it could look good with sports jackets in lighter tones of grey, grey-brown, and some blues. I often go for a white scarf with navy jackets, so it seems like a natural pairing. Black works fine too, but I don't find it as versatile as dark grey.New to turtlenecks, so still dipping my toes.
Black was my first pickup, works surprisingly well in classic menswear.
I think I will stick with the t-shirt style turtlenecks, very comfortable and not too hot.
Another extremely enthusiastic reccomendation for Tom's on grand here. A touch run-down feeling inside but very fair prices for astounding work - more than capable of handling more complex jobs, and a real knowledge of the finer points like drape, proportion, etc, at least compared to most.Nothing too crazy. I will definitely check out Tom's as well. For some reason I was under the impression that Tailors on Blake was no longer in business, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Thanks for your input!
It’s a bit colorful but would go well with some my winter coats. I have a somewhat similar one from Drake’s and wear it often.This looks like it’s for girls
Chelsea boots date back to Victorian times. The name is associated with the Chelsea area of London and the Mods in the 1960s. The Beatles also popularized them.“The Chelsea Boot. They’re called Chelsea boots because everyone in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, where nearly everyone is gay, owns a pair, and gay men know shoes, people.” Source: Today.com whether or not that’s true idk, but judging by the look of the boot I think it may have some validity
Have you considered signing up at ****phobicassholes.com?Ahhhh so you own a Chelsea boot and are sensitive and insecure because someone told you that you bought girls boots. Let me clear up my messages just for you.
There’s nothing wrong with buying what you like. That still will never change the fact that we both know it’s not a mens shoe.
Noting is more manly than being concerned if a shoe looks "gay."“The Chelsea Boot.
