    I don't really care about AS non-boots personally, but I will say the boots are dope.

    Never cared for any vass lasts just can't get behind any of them and the problem with F is the vertical height between the vamp and the toe which the alden barrie had down for a chunky shoe. That wingtip I posted is nice but it's almost confused in purpose.

    Personally if I were going full mc I would be full British rake or whatever the fuck the only lasts I feel could support this are made by lobb and c&j though they are on different levels obviously. As far as clothing, there would be lots of patterns, odd jackets and shirts/ties would all have either some soft orange, green, blue, purple, yellow colors about them along with texture, no muddled earth tones or bright colors. I would be dandy as fuck in other words none of this neapolitan bullshit.

    Re: F last, I think I like the U last better, which is the more rounded one IIRC. Double / Single monks on that last were amazing IMO.

    Im probably going to sell most of my margiela sport coats and start getting MTM from the same guys phatguido goes through in Melbourne. FIrst suit will be a navy one for my wedding next year. I'll wear with C+J and Vass MTO easy. I'm more navy / grey / charcoal suiting, lots of flannel, blue / navy knitted ties, rep ties, some printed ties, pretty much classic english (I live in Australia anyway lol). Im pretty restrained with streetwear and same for MC, I dont really like italian soft tailoring anyway, much more like structured english. That goes back to being Australian and Im suprised your the same way (Most americans like the soft stuff becuase of trad influences)

    just catching up on this thread but i can't miss an opportunity to recommend ben marcus's 'notable american women'. the best contemporary american novel i've read for ages, particularly if you come via European literature. he's influenced by kafka, borges, thomas bernhard, but completely original at the same time.

    Pretty much, should be on the P2 and it'd kick ass.


    wrong way round bro, F last is rounded, U last is the chisel.

    I just got a pair of navy 3-eyelet bluchers on the F last. Perfect shoe for late nights.

    The Fuuma special and that longwing except in whiskey are on my coplist, lol.

    I'm also thinking about trying out these:

    Piergiacomi shoes
    . That's a bentivegna welt. The balance looks perfect.

    The Corner uses pretty nice packaging as well, I was a little tempted to keep the black box when I did a return, but thought that would be rude.

    DC is pretty terrible, never really check it until it's reached it's estimated arrival date, I've had it go silent from "Electronic confirmation received" to "Delivered". Proper tracking isn't really worth it for domestic shipping, imo

    I really like the Moncler stuff that's not made in that horrible shiny nylon. The wool puffer that was released for the mainline (a season after the one from Gamme Bleu, iirc) was my favorite

    THey do put a lot of shit in, but you appreciate it how nice it looks. One of my last orders came in a very big white box. I have it stored in my closet. It´s too nice to throw in the garbage. Same thing for the luisa via roma ones. I´ve got like 5 all stacked in different parts of my room :)

    Dude, we've all known about Alfred Sargent for a long time. Several of our really, really, senior members (as in, founding members) and moderators have longstanding relationships, both personal and professional, with the brand. When the forum first started, there was a split between Anglophiles and Italophiles, and a small group of us more interested in designer and street fashion. Check out the very first post the mentions Alfred Sargent, in April 2002. That's less than 2 months after this place was created:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/1338/help-with-shoes/0_50#post_10294

    This is the reason lots of bloggers/industry people use the forum as an information resource. Yeah, we talk a lot of shit, and let's face it, when you let people just say whatever, probably more than some disinformation, but the accumulated knowledge of the posters, especially in MC, is often quite high.

    Also, and just for your reference, but Alfred Sargent has experimented a lot with their range recently. The Lombards are a new thing, essentially taking a more refined country boot, and putting it on a much more rounded, robust looking last. They were introduced in August of this year: http://alfred-sargent.blogspot.com/2011/08/as-exclusive-lombard.html The stockists are just getting them in now:

    Tons of Neapolitan dandiies. There style is really more relaxed and less "dressed to the nines" than their English counterparts thoughl I'd tend towards the Italians, but that's personal tastes. Actually, there is a lot of reverence for American casualwear and English craftsmanship in Italy, and you see a lot of "Anglo-Italo style." thing English dudes, but more casual, like (middle) Americans, but also more flair.

    Wow, those are gorgeous. I've been looking for a pair of black boots for winter, and I just can't bring myself to order something like White's. These just might be my Christmas present to myself.

    do you feel they're more "try hard" than work boot type boots? what kind of boots aren't try hard or age appropriate? (not attacking, just wondering what your opinion is).

    You know, I'm not so much against brogue boots since a lot of them look pretty decent, I was considering a pair of the trickers aniline boots for a long time. It's 20 year olds who cream their pants over some brogue shoes in whiskey or coffee or chocolate or some other dark coloured beverage/foodstuff. I honestly have no real logic behind it, most people just end up looking like twee toolbags.

    I'm not really in the age-appropriate clothing camp, but I do believe that you have to have a certain "look" to you to pull off certain clothes. It's like, when Uncontrol posts fits, his face and hair and shit I just think "Oh, this looks really natural." Scott does his thing well cause he's got a cool disheveled look going on, etc etc. Baby-face dudes walking around with wingtips, ankle cleavage, and j-crew-esque, workwear-ish shit? Not so much.
