    Amazing non-Japanese shoes

    Yes, I have about 3 variations myself. :) Probably the closest Valway variation to a true dress boot would be the black calf upper / black suede shaft / leather sole combo.

    Amazing non-Japanese shoes

    Smart casual more than dress, in my estimation.

    Your most prized possessions?

    It seemed fairly obvious to me that the fire-grab premise was merely a tongue-in-cheek framework for the discussion of our three favorite wearables. I doubt very much that in the case of an actual fire, you or anyone else would save clothing first.

    Your most prized possessions?

    There certainly have been a number of very strange sartorial items listed to this point.

    I saw that on IG - just fantastic!

    Nice choices - the chukkas in particular. I agree with FF - I'd stick with the white laces.

    Loot - July Edition

    A fine trio. Add a plain white shirt and that could serve as a basic dress shirt package for someone starting from zero.

    bernoulli I judge that to be a grand slam home run - pic and outfit, both. Crusty that is a terrific summer ensemble.

    Amazing non-Japanese shoes

    I've been bugging Karl to do a boot version of the Kaan - Vass' answer to the G&G Thorpe - and I could REALLY go for a tall boot version of this very pair.

    Ditto. I do like seeing outlier designs like this, even though I couldn't see myself wearing them.

    Amazing non-Japanese shoes

    They look black to me. I don't know if this pair is from Ascot but they do offer a full shine on request. Better them than me. :D

    The XII is such a classic.

    What watch are you wearing today?

    1) the hairspring is getting hung up, or 2) the watch is magnetized Either can be fixed quickly and cheaply by a competent watchmaker.

    Löf & Tung anyone?

    Kingleys had an outing today.

    What watch are you wearing today?

    It could be mechanical and inexpensive. With a Seiko or Miyota movement, the price might jump maybe $75. Love the design. Junk straps are to be expected at this price point. But as you note, decent quality replacements are widely available.

    What watch are you wearing today?

    Very nice! They have a lot of compelling retro designs. I do wish they offered mechanical models.
