    nice to see the brogue collections representing! on a different tack: when looking around on Yuketen vs. Russell Moccasin angle - stumbled on crashtestbrummie's instagram: that is some Yuketen collection getting built there...

    Know that shiner very well; pretty impressive work he put in: with some extravagant fishing action shots if I remember? ... this thread is a venerable long-un , a huge source of info and one I have taken the time to chew through from beginning to end... interesting how the thread started pretty equally balanced between US and UK hand made shoes/boots [with the odd hate thrown at 'bulbous' US shapes] to then becoming almost exclusively US styles with a balance of US and JP made...

    interesting: with a quick look over cheaney, church's, and crockett & jones not seeing any with toe brogue holes so low: curious... also does seem like their town and country get quite different patterns as well: town: country:

    same... especially the curve of the back into the heel... almost boot soled shoes; love it [plus, always a sucker for well worn natural leather and/or tan...]

    hey! looking over the trickers site I was thinking that seems to be something that distinguishes the 'country' brogues from the 'town' brogues... [as my pair def. feel more city in terms of toe shape and general balance] yet none of the 'town' brogues have storm welts... curious... @julian-wolf - great price & great score btw ...

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    a just washed silhouette & as the lockdown in the UK lifts a little, back to onsite working and observing global Britain at a standstill... popped back to a particular neglected corner of the world between rochester and chatham [rochester high street, just on the river medway], seeing how they are faring with the pause in the world... if the previous post was a little too pastoral, some broken glass to go with the pollarding... the church come gym now amassing its own tyre collection shops that are long boarded up and their neighbours... nearer the river itself; [this used to be a video game archive - now a house of rage...] in the reflection here: the chatham house I presume the international policy think-tank is named after [a listed building, long boarded up and sealed off] the local synagogue seems to have amassed a pile of shoes... and then some shots of st bartholomew's - the oldest hospital in the UK (established 1078 wikipedia tells me) until its closure in 2016... you know what it is becoming now... edit: the 'granite gym' posted earlier is actually st bartholomew's chapel - built around 1120, on original site of the hospital (so the internet tells me...) - this redevelopment is of the 19th century hospital rebuild... plus; wondering why there is no iconography of covid signs going on - a start to the collection

    yes to the trickers was lucky enough to find these for a tenner in a local charity shop... probably best made shoes I own...

    so thank you and much of a yes-yes to the longhorn: would love one if they were ever made in a 44! (the 42 as biggest size has too small a collar for me when tried on...) @Double 0 Soul - can't imagine you wearing a 38 everar! always happy to wear with the button popping up [and the arse sagging ] ... and as ever, great wear on that pair!

    already hacked around 3 inches off before the pic: so currently at around 32" ... either hemmed to 31" or 29" seem like the options atm... really like them: very much like a 30s pair with all the bits (cinch etc.) stripped off and in a darker deeper denim, as I imagine 40s pairs probably were... I can see the fervour that @Pedro has for them... given that I've been asked to 'fess up to my hoard; most similar pair to what already have is to my sz5 tender 132 I have: really quite similar continuous wide leg and general heft, but an inch longer front rise (13" over the tender 12") but an inch smaller thigh (tender around 15" canes around 14") and then same-ish hem / leg opening... a really stubborn starched and thick feeling denim... I know very much that the work of hayashi-san must be experienced: will have to find the pairs of 710s and 711s in hand to know which to go for: 711 seems like the more characterful denim from pix...
