They have a slightly dopey expressio, bulbous toe on them. But that's just my opinion.

You ever get those vintage Hi-Techs sold playford?

0 |

Nah. I think they'd look grand on, you don't want some big winkelpicker thing going on.

MMurray, ebay is your friend to avoid paying top wack.

I like loakes actually better for a country style brogue and they are usually a lil bit cheaper too.

Grensons have a thinner italian kind of sole, which is nice in black dress brogues but the heavier loakes sole looks better in a country brogue imo.

I'd pay good money for a mint pair of x4s

Then I'm gonna have to do the cunty thing of going to a nice local retailer who sells this stuff, try on all their shoes and then buy em off ebay. Seems a shitty thing to do.

Speaking of which, Braddell's on North St. is a good £20 cheaper than online for Barbour if anyone is looking a fine jacket.

I'd say you could pick up a lovely pair of loakes for less than a ton in town. The shoe shop facing braddells sells them btw.

Gleet. Haven't heard that one in a while.

They say a lot can be told by a man's shoes. i prefer to judge a man on his favourite Dylan album or how far he can gleet.

so here we are, all the lads.

Lets keep this the gentleman's thread then.

George Lamb. Utter, utter cunt but by fuck can he dress.

Where would I find a nice tweed like that? Everything I've seen is either big bright country check or completely neutral.

Picked up a nice pair of Adidas Rom's last week.

Been searching for a nice vintage leather jacket for months ever since leaving mine on a plane. Any ideas on where to search? Local vintage shops are shit.

lamb's got a great dress sense, in recent years. But we all could be like lamb if we had a stylist picking our clothes. Did he and stylist set up a fashion line of something?

I presume you lot wear a lot of white trainers?

In NY I bought a pair similar to these except they have a pink trim:

They got splashed with dirt so I stepped them in Vanish Oxy action for whites... then scrubbed them with it, then washed them in it.

Still stained :(

0 |

only thing I can suggest is a toothbrush and when they are a bit wet scrubbing with daz powder and a toothbrush.

I spied those too Dee, lovely trainers. I've got a bit of a soft spot for NB but I don't think I'll be forking out £130 for a pair any time soon!

Got those 998s in grey. Lovely kicks but there's something about the way the tongue sits when on that annoy the fuck out of me. I was gona use them as my running shoes but thats sacrilege as the suede would get fucked. Prob just stick them on ebay.

What kind of brogues do Reid's sell these days? They used to sell some quality ones and I'd rather fire my coin their way when I make my next purchase and support the Loyalist Sandy Row Heartland of South Belfast UFF.

400 like...u cud get ones like that in topman for about 20 quid

0 |

my point exactly, trainer prices are mad, id never spend anything like what i used to spend on trainers, there is no point any more. I think the last pair of trainers i bought were £40 for a pair of green adidas gazelle og.

0 |

I really havent seen any footwear that interests me at all recently bar a pair of alden indys, purple malmo and one or two new balance.

maybe a grenson stanley or archie but its been slow this season.

0 |

Both pretty left field I agree. Get a load of wear out of them though.

Been looking a pair of smart back shoes for ages. Bar a pair of Guidi for 600 odd quid I can't find a thing...and I'm not about to shell out 600 ffs.

0 |

purple malmo? city series trainers in the wrong colours grind my gears.

0 |

gonna have these i think
