    My last comment on trouser length in a shoe thread.

    The country is free as far as trouser length style preferences are concerned. The government will not tell you what to wear. I could not show up dressed like that, but that is my particular, private, workplace, not a federal demand. Many people, clearly, can dress in a more fashion conscious manner and enjoy doing so.

    Back to shoes.

    You can wear your pants at capri length if you want to. Doesn't mean it will look good.

    Those pants have a strange yellow colour, and paired with the very blue jacket and green tie, the colour coordination is off.

    This only draws more focus to the length of the pants, which I reckon might look just fine in another pose/angle.

    But what purpose does that really serve to get a group together? They don't charge any MTO fee, at least not upfront they don't tell you that your paying an additional fee, and their prices for stock models at a retailer are the same you pay when ordering a single MTO if I remember correctly.

    GMTO helps build sense of community.

    Certainly nothing wrong with that. Initially I had questioned what the motivation might be however.

    StC was having serious issues with their shrunken calf....

    I would be very hesitant to order this from them.

    Nonetheless, a GMTO would be fun. Then we can all meet in NYC for drinks and kick ass in our new shoes.

    I heard the same about the shrunken calf. Apparently crust + shrunken isn't great.

    Heard the same, was reassured that it'd been sorted.
