    thank you, parker. mighty kind of you.

    since you brought it up, this is an area i have struggled with for a long time. i know that my broader/larger build really calls for a rounder last like these marlows, but i have long hesitated for 2 reasons.

    1. i simply like the look of more angular/aggressive dress shoes over that of more rounded ones.

    2. i have a hard time envisioning a dressy outfit looking right with what i view as a more clunky shoe.

    so, as to number 1, i just said to myself, suck it up and accept that you look better in shoes that you may not prefer. and as to number 2, i felt that with a more country look like i went with today, as opposed to a city look, that the rounded last really is actually better.

    anyhow, sorry for the mini essay, but so is the story of my non pointy shoes, and i am pleased with the outcome.


    :)

    thanks, man. i try to be open minded. i have benefited from it greatly.

    indesertum - giacca is italian for jacket. or so i gather from the wikipedia page i had google translate for me.




    why thanks you!

    indeed that was part of my plan when i bought them.

    I BET THEY WOULD LOOOK GREAT WITH JEANS!!!! :devil:


    ill risk it and assume your post was directed at me, and say, thanks bam!

    stitches i think you've been spending too much time on SF if you think a rounder toe isn't dressy. look at classic menswear, lots of rounded toes. or most british shoes forever.

    no question.

    classic menswear? where is that, im not familiar with that.

    nothing to do with history. i am just speaking about what i view as more congruent. this is something i have mentally associated long before i found SF. i have always thought that very round lasts look off with many dress looks. or at least many of the looks i aim for. im not saying that its correct, and i know that historically lots of dress shoes are rounder. im just saying how the aesthetic has struck me personally.

    in my brain, sleeker look = sleeker shoe. hence, i have a hard time liking the look of rounder lasts with many dress fits. except in more country fits, or more relaxed/lived in fits. phatguido has had some excellent fits with suits and round lasts. some of the few that i have really liked.

    +1

    dudes with big feet should lay off the super elongated toe look... ends up looking like size 17 feet

    Awesome. Did you reach the summit? Did you use sherpas? Any fatalities?

    Just went to base camp! Which is a two-week trek in of itself. I don't climb!!
    Sumitting requires two+ months, $60,000, mountaineering experience, and a physiology that can handle high altitudes.
    Highest I went was 5500m, good enough for me!

    Thank fuck you didn't try to summit. Everest, at this point, is basically a death trap for people with more money than sense.

    Not really happy with how high the neck opening got on this tee after a couple of washes (despite drying flat). :(

    Thanks!
    Lately they have been putting the money for climbing permits and national park entrance fees towards litter clean-up, on the trails and on the mountains. There were numerous well-maintained trash recepticles, and I saw locals hired to be on clean-up duty. Expeditions are also now required to carry out any trash they take in

    How do you like that Schneider jacket? In concept it seems like it should be ridiculously nice and every Schneider textile that I've handled I've been very impressed with, but for some reason the close-ups of that jacket didn't look as good as I expected. Was considering copping nonetheless

    Can't say as I have any complaints. Quality is up to Schneider par and the fit is spot on. It's also a lot warmer than I had anticipated, which is a nice surprise (sleeves are thick and tightly knit and the body is made of two layers that are probably about a centimeter thick each).

    e: It does have a slightly fuzzy texture, which I could see being the reason why the closeups might look disappointing to you. But it does not disappoint.
