    The branchinis look interesting, but the pointy lasts hurt my feet by just looking at them (or maybe that's residual from walking 50 city blocks last night in some pre-SF french shoes I purchased in Cannes a few years back).

    There is minimal creasing on the tri-colour Branchini, that looks the most intriguing. Would enjoy seeing how those soles held up.

    The branchini chukkas look like they'd pair well with denims, but again, the pointy last looks harsh.


    Those SC reindeer monks are very nice indeed.

    Focus on the mortgage. Shoes can wait.

    Nifty - lost in your post is the splendor of the C&J pebble grained chukkas on the 341 last - I have those shoes and they are great.

    The Santoni FAM calf captoes are also great and get lost in your mix of exotics. Please do post several photos of your Santoni FAM calf captoe shoes. :slayer:

    FootJoy longwing tassel loafers with dull light-grey lining and a suprisingly contoured last. Made in the USA to their Classics collection before FJ decided to abandon the motherland in favour of Asia.

    You can't ponce around in town and get complements for a mortgage...:fonz:


    FJ is the saddest loss from made in America shoes. Their stuff is wonderful especially the vintage reptile. If only they had got off the golf thing and moved to the collab thing early they may have survived and thrived like Alden. IMO of course.

    A man with priorities so far out of whack does not deserve such a fine automobile.

    How very classic! My first experience with Footjoy was a couple of pairs of ATROCIOUS sneaker-style golf shoes my uncle owns. Little did I know they made incredible shoes for nearly 100 years, before going overseas for production... especially the older ones. Very nice 2-tone tassel loafers. My Dad gave them the "seal of approval", as he is the Loafer Expert of my family.

    Love the bowtie design of the penny loafer closure part on the vamp.

    Those crocs are nice, but I think the penny strap is too wide for such a narrow waist.

    Excellent skin & a bold style for a loafer. I am NOT a loafer man, but I can't argue with the craftsmanship.

    I'm finding the alligator oxfords on Cravate's blog superb, these loafers have that overwide strap that's bothering me.

    So I know that elongated, beveled lasts are the rage and I was on that train for some time but I have been going in the other direction as I have a high instep, am on the wide side of medium width and just think that rounder lasts work better in my closet. Also been pushing to suesde a lot as Iagain, it just works great in my closet. Nothing very exciting here, two chukka's, wingtips. In a nod to funkiness, I went with a navy lining. That is ias exciting as I find myself getting with shoes now.
