    first, it's a sweater vest. so that's one source of uncertainty.
    another source: non-cashmere tb knits seem to be pretty inexpensive compared to his other items. dunno if that means anything quality-wise.

    What size are they? Mihara is a bit tough to size. But I think you should get them. They are fairly elongated, just so you know.

    I think I like them, but it's kind of hard to tell with just this one shot. Can't really tell whether the toe is just a little upturned v. looking totally clownish from another angle.

    They're a size 25 so probably would need an insole. I find I fit a 39.5 best. 39s are only comfortable without socks. tbh, because my feet are so small, slightly clownish boots are better because they make my feet look more normal lol

    I am skeptical about the idea of sizing them to fit big. They are great though, have been looking for them in a 27.5. (I am a 44-44.5)

    tbh they look mad weird worn, mcnairy never looks 100% right ime. I tried them on and they were mad dainty and limp wrist.

    Fuck I hate everything Mc Nairy touches

    +1

    He said something like: "For my first Woolrich Woolen Mills collection, I was inspired chiefly by Ivy League Schools and the US Navy. So I called the collection 'Naval Intelligence'."

    Way to give Daiki a run for his money there hoss. Now I have to despise you forever.


    Any recommendations for something else in the "not quite completely dressed up but not some tennis shoes" shoe category?

    I've been looking for the same thing. Basically something to replace boots for summer. I'm debating between Alden #8 ptb or chukkas. Kinda want penny loafers but i fear with my current style they'll end up right next to my bucks getting next to no use.

    Plenty of soft suede shoes that aren't made by McNairy, up into like Crockett and Jones or Fratelli Rossetti territory if you have some flow at hand (n.b. shitty slang phrase). Keds are pretty easy to dress up also. Or Rachel Comey Derringers or Matebas. Or some Paul Smith joints.

    Thanks, I looked at some of those offerings. They don't have to be suede necessarily, but it seems to be easier to pull off the look I'm going for in suede.

    Is there anything in that $250 and below price range. It looks like Rachel Comey could be had if one found a sale.

    What should I be looking for that the McNairy's don't have?
