noap, nothing in specific, just every time i start looking at shoes online.
No, I meant me. I finally pulled the trigger on the green Bontoni monkstraps I was watching on ebay. I need another pair of shoes like I need a hole in my head but it is not a matter of needing is it?
Those were sick! Def post pics!
x-post WAYWRN - Finsbury shoes, BB socks
noice! wear em in good health.
Very nice, I'm starting to like your inclination to wear lighter socks than the pants, I think it would look even better with the shoes less matte, more polished ala upr_crust
thanks, rikod! sadly, i dont have the gumption to polish like that. and i like the matte finish anyways.
I don't have the gumption, but the gentlemen at my local shoe repair shop have not only the gumption, but excellent technique in these matters, and for a small fee, they shine my shoes exceedingly well.
English is not my first language so I had to google the word gumption so I learned something today , I do take one day a week to shine at least the couple of pairs most in need.
That is a good point, crusty. And one of the advantages of living in a city like New York. I wish there was someone locally that I could trust to properly polish my shoes.
Rikod - Glad you enjoyed the new word.
Stitchy and crusty looking great again

So I didn't get the promotion I was hoping for which sucks but I appreciate the thoughts from all the gents in the thread. On another note. BONTONI TRUNK SHOW TOMORROW!!!!
Incotex light grey flannels
It is harder than I thought to find socks with a small amount of light grey in the pattern. It is surprisingly limited.
Looking good gents! Been enjoying the pics the past couple of days from lovely Ibiza!
So not much dress shoes for me
Jazz, we need to see those Bontoni's!
justin, shame to hear you didn't get it.
