    Cordovan as bad weather footwear. So I followed the SF advice and wear my cordovan during bad weather and got water marks all over. It took a year and half and numerous polishes for the water marks to fade. I don't why so many members suggest cordovan as bad weather attire.

    I don't know what to tell you. This never happens to me. I have walked through snow and slush more than once wearing shell boots and never had a problem. Calf soaks through almost instantly, and gets easily stained from the salt they spread on the streets. Cordovan does not. At least, mine has not.

    IMO, overall, Marinella has a higher taste level than any other maker. H&B are well made, and many of them are nice, but many are real clunkers. Marinella are almost uniformly nice, if somewhat dull (but I like dull ties).

    Marinella also uses a great lining, a bit thinner and less spongy. And the shape is cut differently. Marinella's shape is that Italian "bottle" shape that Nicky also does. H&B -- like all English ties -- are cut more like a straight-sided triangle.

    There is an impressive difference between those that post on clothing forums and those who read only. Those who post trending towards eclectic and sometimes anachronistic tastes.

    +10000.

    I will, though. Panerai comes to mind, of course.

    Followed by other watches whose functionality could be had from $50 quartz watches with more reliability and better quality.


    That means all mechanical watches.

    Let's add credibility to the list. Styleforum is too gullible.

    Well, yes. I've nothing against an automatic; however, I do have something against paying ridiculous amounts of money for a mechanical watch when superior functionality and quality can be had for cheaper.

    For everyone that rips on walmart clothing and holds H & M clothes on a pedestal

    Fact: H & M production facilities also produce the identical shirts for the wal mart "George" line
