        [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] - are those your Bexley Chelsea boots? How do you find the quality? Their price point seems pretty decent for a Blake stitch. How is the quality of the leather?

          Yea these are my Bexley's.

          Quality: Leather is thin but with trees in them, you can get by this. I bought these in 2012 so over 4 years they have held up well. For 100 Euros (when I bought 2 pairs) these have been a good deal.
          Welt: They are also their goodyear welted variety which I don't think they make many varieties anymore.
          Last: This is the biggest deal breaker. There is little online information for comparing the lasts so in this boot I am a EU46 but I have another shoe on a different last where I am a complete size down. They could sell a lot more if they provided last information online but they don't.

          Like I have mentioned before, I think, is to buy these in store as I wouldn't recommend them online due to the last issues and finding the right size. Plus their website is a bit of a mess.

            Great, thank you! Yes, I can't find hardly anything on their sizing, and their website is not very helpful. Couple that with shipping returns to/from USA.. bummer. Seems like a great quality to value. Those look great for 4 years! I like the whole outfit today btw

              That looks great and is an awesome example of how to put together less expensive clothes

                Thanks! I actually really like the Uniqlo tweed and the sweater, especially for the money. Not sure how they'll resist pilling, but so far so good.

                      Awesome textures, looks super cozy. What JCrew jacket is that, and which fit do you wear for the LE trousers? I haven't tried LE for pants yet, but I've been debating it for a while. I have two sportcoats from them that I love.

                        The jacket is one I've had for four or five years so no clue except that it is a navy-charcoal tweed herringbone Ludlow. The trousers are also a year or two old and are tailored fit.

                          Excellent topcoat, and you are holding someone who is looking great too.

                              That looks great JHB, and it's for a party so I don't think the rules *need* to be followed as much as for a formal ceremony.

                              Narrow, mid gray, pinstripe flannel 3 piece I thrifted. Havn't been tailored yet. Might of been my greatest thrift find if I didn't live somewhere so warm and actually anything business-related to wear it.

                                Symphony holiday concert... they encouraged "tasteful holiday flair" so I decided to toe the edge of concert attire propriety a little and get more bang for my buck out of this $45 JCP velvet blazer.
