    I think I found them for around $18 on Amazon.
    They are very tight on on the pinky toe. To the point that it is falling asleep after about half an hour.

The Strands and Park Ave I own and wear are 7.5E and they fit great, I have two pairs of loafers (Acheson, and Cavanaugh) and a pair of chelsea boots (Liverpool) and all are 7.5E. All three of the slip on shoes are just a little too big after breaking in. I decided to size down to 7E for these St John's since they are technically a loafer, but gosh damn they are tight.

    I brought them into the office so I can wear them around on the carpet and still return if necessary. I was able to tolerate wearing them for about half an hour this morning. How long should I give these? Does anyone else have experience with sizing Strands vs St John's? Did you wear the same size in each? Will spring loaded shoe trees help stretch or they just help keep the shape?

    Can't go wrong with Chelsea boots, sleek and black. Medium brown suede chukka boots like Clarks original for a polo shirt would be nice.

    Suitable will really depend on the direction you want to take the look
    • Greats Royale for more casual
    • AE Leeds, Tate, or Suede Strandmock for slightly dressed up
    • Thursday Boots Statesman is great with plaid
    Many options to choose from all with a different feel

    Hi guys,

    I have stumbled upon a really nice pair of NB's. It's an old release, so I am not willing to find the exact model, but maybe you have any ideas on similar style sneakers? I looked for NB 574 on amazon, but there were no models in green color. Or maybe I'm just too obsessed with green? Anyways, thanks for your help.

    Decided to take advantage of the BR sale and snagged loafers in two different colors for ~$60 each. I know BR shoe quality isn't amazing, but I've never actually suede loafers before, so thought it made sense to buy a cheaper pair and see if I actually wear them before going in on a more expensive brand. Just wondering how folks think they look (my slightly ratty jeans and socks notwithstanding):





    Maybe it's just the angle of the photo or the way the sock/jeans combo almost looks like sweatpants, but to me the stitching right down the center of the toe makes them look more like slippers than loafers. I don't remember ever seeing loafers that had the seam like that. I would probably end up returning them for that reason, but that's just my opinion and personal taste.

    Hi All! I saw a new logo today and hoping you can help me identify it. I didn’t take a photo, and kicking myself for not being that creepy guy. Logo was a stitched outline of a tractor above the back right pocket on some nice wool dress trousers. Anyone know what brand/designer this is??

    thanks! stay safe & be well.

    Looks like a pretty good purchase. And i like the idea of buying a cheaper pair of shoes to see if you like the style or not. I have been kicking around the idea of wearing loafers for a while now. The idea to use/start with an affordable pair is a good one. Maybe with Black Friday sales around the corner I'll see what I can find, sales wise.

I didn't want to start a new thread for this off the bat so I figured I'd post here first. I'm looking for a 22 MM metal bracelet for my Seiko 5 Sport to replace the cheap nato it came with. I was hoping some of the watch guys around here could help me out with some recommendations.
    The perfect metal bracelet.
