    Ask a quick question, get an answer

    Iím in court this morning for a case management conference, and thereís a lawyer here on another matter, who is wearing a really great suit that is tailored perfectly.

    Maybe one of the best Iíve ever seen. Makes my BB suit look like a rag

    Would it be weird to ask him who made his suit and who his tailor is?

    Is it the suit or the tailoring that sets it apart most? I really feel that great tailoring is crucial. I'm a smedium so take quite a bit of my purchases to my tailor, just to get them to the right size. But he's so good that by the time he's finished, even something that I originally thought was the right size looks very different. He can make the cheapest stuff look great.

    I didn't ask. I felt too weird.

    Funny thing was that he was wearing this amazing suit, guy probably mid-40's, and then I noticed that instead of a sharp briefcase, he had a backpack. I thought that was strange.

    I always cringe when I see that, too. It's a "one of these things is not like the other" moment. I carry a nice over-the-shoulder Tumi but when I travel, I did find myself wanting a backpack occasionally. I found a sharp looking Briggs & Riley that I felt matched up with the rest of my ensemble. Yet I still can't help but think, "I'm all dressed up but I'm carrying a backpack. Feels weird".

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice\guidance on replacements for my current brown leather chukka boots.
    -Brown leather (not burnished, not too dressy or shiny, something that can take a bit of a beating-pebbled is fine, not suede)
    -resoleable
    -leather or rubber soles
    -At least 3 eyelets (so not a true chukka I guess) but no more than 5
    -toe shape and lines that make them nice enough to wear dressy casual
    -plain toe (no caps or perforations)
    -luckily can say price is not a concern

    I'm having a heck of a time finding what I'm looking for.

    Thanks in advance.

    Herring may have some pairs that fit your bill. They have several with three eyelets, which isn't common.

    Did you see these from AE?

    https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoes/m...chukka&start=1

    Carmina will probably make these for you in brown instead of burgundy, with their customization program:

    Oh yes, start here for Carmina; you will get exactly what you want:

    Thank you for the suggestions. I had never heard of Carmina, very cool to be able to customize to that level. It would be nice to find some that I could try in person before buying. Shoes fit my right foot much different than my left (old injury). Loake has a few that seem like they would fit the bill, not super easy to get access in person though.

    Not sure where you are, but Carmina has a store in NYC:

    45e E 45th St, New York, NY 10017

    Given the prices they charge for customized shoes, I'm sure they would be helpful on the phone as well.

    Also, I think they carry them at Barney's in New York, San Francisco, and Beverly Hills.

    Oops . . . my bad. Barney's is going out of business. They have some other US locations if you follow the link.
