    Fail. Have a nice day.

    A navy blue leather belt to match some shoes I have. Is it even worth bothering?

    [​IMG] Any input? Can I lace these bad boys? Do the numbers rub off easily?

    I can get this Banana Republic tote for $30 with my discount. Its a dark charcoal nylon with leather handles and brass hardware. I would wear it like the following picture, they both are about the same size. Will this work or am I getting into the purse territory too much?

    CP officer shoes/boots for like half off? So like $225 instead of $450. Problem is I'm like a 41.5 in sneakers, 41 or 42 in the dress shoes? I've heard both to size up and size down...

    Or just get some half off Grenson Nobles for like $125?

    They're laceless dress shoes. Wear them casually, not for a nice business meeting. Also, the numbers don't really come off so don't buy them if it's that big a deal. I personally don't have a problem with them and still want a pair of the laceless navy or white dress shoes or white perf laceups by CP

    ^^i agree. i'm not a big fan of the laceless officer's but i think if one is going to get a pair, navy or white is the way to go. the more casual looking the better

    I think those are from last spring. The officer shoes from fall are shaped differently (and i don't really like them much) from the spring ones. Still, if i encounter a pair on ebay or here/sufu, i'll probably have a go at it.

    Fail. Have a nice day.

    Why is it a "fail" to match one's belt color to shoe color? I am getting myself a navy blue belt made to match my navy blue work boots; I love the look of having both match.

    I feel the same way, but I wasn't sure if it would be too much.

    I thought briefly about getting it, but now I won't so I think you should go for it. I think FtB had some fits where he made it look good.

    That you said "wear" rather than "carry" makes me think purse [​IMG] But it looks like a nice bag for $30.

    I would like a new pair of loafers...

    no laces, and no the numbers don't come off..
    and if you want to sell these - tell me, i'm very very interested.

    for 110 US shipped... really want it but recent spending has made me a bit more cautious [​IMG]

    thoughts?


    its a decent price for n(n) (which has just shown its last collection)
    but in reality that's a normal check flannel shirt..
