I was about to say if you would wear the shiny pair you posted with shorts but wouldn't wear Cecil's pair then I wasn't sure we could help you.


Haha, I feel you. I love the wisdom of the OT!

I like the jacket. I'm definitely thinking about getting one soon. The Retro-X from Patagonia is probably one of my favorite jackets that I own.


You'll have a new favorite.

The Barbour looks more grown up and it's just in a whole different league of fashion, imo.

Which jacket would you pick out from them?

Looked good with a button-down and khaki cords today.

That is my usual gear in the cold weather, I will have to invest in a jacket soon.

Are you sure you're not me?

Cecil, btw, we have finally made our reservations to the Chateau de la Chevre d'or Eze in Eze, France -- supposedly the heart of the French Riviera. LINK

We will be going in May! Can't wait.

That's what I thought as well Dandy. I liked the style of the croc ones posted but they were a little over the top for my style. What would you think of them if they weren't the croc style?

I like those! Much more so than the penny loafer style posted earlier. Not sureif I could pull them off with shorts though. What do you think of those dandy if in a different color?

Hell, man, I like a lot of them, including the one that you posted. A jacket like that, I'd have to get into them and get a good feel on them, looked up on the site and there are a couple locations around here that carry them that I'll stop in soon.

Cords are cool. Alot of people are afraid of them, I don´t know why. Actually, I don´t give a shite. Cords are cool for me.

Careful, I wear five pocket jean type cords, not the khaki types.

With them, I wear driving mocs and some suede boots which are akin to very stylized ´brogues´.

I´m in Atlanta now, and the sisters go crazy over them. These brogue type boots are crazy sharp styling wise, but are lacking in the quality department. Nevertheless, they´re still going strong, since probably 2008 or so. In fact, I just cleaned them today, and will do a new impermeability treatment shortly.

My new Lucchese Classics from Christmas in, you guessed it, crocodile. Still fire tho.

I only wear Lucchese cowboy boots with them, my boy. The only shoes I own besides that are: my old pair of Lucchese cowboy boots, New Balance 993, and Sperry billfish.

See why I'm trying to step up my shoe game?

And cords are awesome, not scary!

Damn good question, seems like we got mighty similar interest

Damn man, that's literally a dream vacation. I hope y'all have a great time out there. If you can, let me know about some of the stuff you do/see out there.
I'll probably be taking a trip out there one of these days, when I find someone worth bringing.

We might be the same person, after all.. strong parallel going on here
Far as Lucchese's are, I got some chestnut elephants, 1883's, and a pair of gator 2000's
1883 collection is my favorite

re: Just picked up this pair of Cole Haan for 37 bucks.


Gotcha, so essentially oxfords? That was my main concern and usually is with different pants. Im down to try anything but have to be able to create a good combo with the shoes before I will go through with it.

And SF, you might wanna look at some penny loafers etc to step up the dress game. Thats usually what Im on is dress and such because its what I wear to work.
