Guys...apologies for terrible photo quality...can I get an opinion on whether this Pyrenex jacket is too short ? It's meant to be a shorter down jacket anyway, but being 6'2" with very long legs I'm unsure if it looks ridiculous ? Other option is a medium length one with fur, but it doesn't have as nice a finish.

@dieworkwear how did u size ur Pretziada boots?
I'm a 9D on the Brannock and took a 42 in the boots. So TTS.

Note, because of how the boots are designed -- overlapping facings and that fold down tongue -- they take longer than usual to lace up. I don't want to overstate it. It's not crazy, but it's a little longer than lacing up normal boots. That's because you have to fiddle with the whole thing in order to get the throat to open wide enough to slide in your foot.

If you order a pair, ask the company to include one or two sets of extra-long laces. I found that helps. The normal laces aren't as long and it'll take you even longer to fiddle with everything cause you don't want to accidentally unlace them. Extra-long laces give you some wiggle room. Plus, in the end, you can wrap them around your ankle a couple of times and that looks kind of cool.

I was hoping @Benesyed would chime in! I've been wearing either Carmina chelseas or Buttero Floyds (both black calf) with my Schneider

Where'd you get your black loafers?
I prefer a more slipper-like loafer with a lower heel for Schneider. Something like Doucal’s or Lemaire like the ones Benes wears.
