    The Wallies gotta go along with the Clarks dbs. Just such an ugly shoe.

    Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated. They look really solid, so I guess the look and how they handle meet up, which is great. I was looking at the King Tubby's and the Spectator Boots in particular, boots more so than the Tubby's. Any sizing referenced from you guys? I am a 41 in CP (sneakers and shoes), 7 UK in Grenson, 7.5 UK 5 fitting Tricker's, 8D Alden Barry, 8.5 Alden Trubalance. I was thinking a 7UK in Mr. Hare to be safe since they do like they taper like crazy like you mention Briza.

    Well, I had these ones and they fit about +one size long, but were a bit narrow. From my understanding, the King Tubby should be a bit narrow as well, but may not be quite as long. Hope that helps a bit.

    I agree with BrizaBirch; everything from Mr. Hare that I've handled has been really great. I had a pair that had amazing quality, and looked beautiful as well. If they're your style, I'd definitely recommend getting some. Salmon skin Zukie's would be pretty awesome, I think.

    EDIT: I've been looking like crazy for white shirts that are slightly longer, with slightly longer sleeves, that are still relatively slim (i.e. ones that fit me) and it is absolutely impossible. I'm guessing I may need to get some MTM or something. [​IMG]



    try naked and famous.. im 6'4 and they are long enough for me, tad bit too short to tuck and keep a good hold, but doable

    thinking about buying clarks to hold me over for the rest of the summer :/ getting sick of wearing my vans 24/7

    also, nyc shopping trip on the way back to baltimore in August? yesssss. now I just need to save some money to actually buy something with. going to kop some uniqlo basics, hopefully some footwear, and an eg fw outerwear piece.

    Clarks db will always be a good entry level boot. I personally don't think there is anything wrong with clarks dbs other than the fact that they are overplayed.

    Fashion is not limited to dressing and better hair cut but it is beyond the limits like these.. Tattoos and jewelry for men is becoming more famous now a days.
    ^^^word. I love famous jewelry.

    The charm of ugliness (in design) is underrated round these parts.
