    Sunday Challenge - 5/31/2015 - No Shoelaces

    This weeks challenge is simple - wear any outfit but your shoes can not have shoelaces (loafers, monks, slip-ons, mocs, chelsea boots, cowboy boots, etc).

    Standard boilerplate:

    - Challenge proposed on Tuesday or [not so] early Wednesday
    - Rules solidified throughout the week
    - On Sunday or before, all participants dress according to challenge guidelines
    - Entries recorded Sunday night, voting begins
    - Winner declared on Tuesday evening
    - Winner is responsible for next week's theme
    Measurement Reference: 5'11" 173lbs 40R 32x32

    Hey JB, love the minimal colour look!

    How do you find the fit on those Bexleys. I've thought about purchasing from their site, but the sizing feels fraught with danger. Are they relatively true to size? and how do they compare to US brands like AE or English brands like Loake?

    Thanks!

    @Celimos - I bought them in store and will say sizing is all over the place. I bought them for 2 for 200 Euros and while they are goodyear welted, I will probably not get them recrafted. I love the wholecuts I have from them but these boots see action maybe once a month. They run narrow and I only wear them on days I don't run in the morning. I wanted to try some shoes from Finsbury in Paris as the blog Parisian Gentlemen give them good reviews for the price but I had already bought 2 pairs of Carmina's while in Paris and no room in the luggage for more shoes. Leather is on the cheaper side too so it creases quicker even with trees.

    Another piece of advice would be if you want to try one of these brands, there are "sale periods" in Paris, one in January-February and another in maybe June? These places run sales so it is a good time to take a chance.
