oh wow  why french veal any specific reason for you?

 

like is it a tougher leather or softer more dense?

more elegant, higher quality leather that will age more beautifully(hopefully). The 'you get what you pay for' mentality

Can’t remember the brand as it is erased but these were excellent for Sunday mass.

I’d love to see your toes. Are they pointy or flat?

these are perhaps my favourite. Can't beat a good square toe, they're great to clean in the corners too!

Way to many pictures to post, but Addict clothes updated their web store with Regular stock and made to order engineers and boots in steerhide, Horsehide, and rough out.  According to the site, you’re looking at 3-4 months for completion.  Very nice of them to offer the option of putting a half deposit option on the made to order boots.

Lol no prob. It came out to $783.  I have another Horsehide Boss coming in August that’s not in MP toe.  I’ll ask Wesco Japan/Wesco USA to post it on their Instagram while I post it here once it comes in.

I’m seeing lots of white socks these days with loafers, paraboots, etc. I like the footwear but in my opinion the socks ruin the look. How about some other colours or patterns - stripes, Argyle, etc?

White socks are arguably one of the aspects of the 80s that should be left behind permanently.

EDIT: unless you’re all wearing them ironically of course and then the joke is well and truly on me!

Each to their own man. The 80s didn’t invent white socks though. I can’t stand argyle socks

We all have our unique quirks and tastes, I just suppose white socks is the one that pushes my buttons! I wonder what Freud would say about that...

Well, to be fair, the white socks pic does actually include shoes that [will presumably] look better with age…

edit: Not that I haven’t been enjoying your posts, personally—I just haven’t really figured out how to interpret them

I think the white socks help the shoes and jeans stand out more... so provided both are good, it works well... as above

All 80s imagery does need deleting from memory to appreciate them fully though

I partly agree with Maynard. In the above picture a grey or coloured sock might look better with the loafers whereas white socks with grey sneakers and jeans work well  IMO.

Yeah, some 50s rockers wore white socks with black shoes and Jeans. Looked good. In the 80s heavy metalers wore skinny jeans with white socks and looked horrible. So theyr back...
