I'm tempted although I might wait to see if the price comes down in the sale.

I've owned a couple of pairs in the past. Pretty comfy and they go with anything. Get them on sale (Gravity Pope got some models, Yoox too). Get your Converse/Vans size.

Brisey, is the paisley part cloth, like linen or cotton?

Do you have a link for those?

Yes, a guy has to be careful with Etro. Most women hate it, unless its worn by a grey haired 50+ man. Then they love it.

Wear it for yourself. I love those shoes. I also love some Etro jackets and I have my eye on one of their tuxedos. Midnight blue, very fine velvet with just a peek of paisley. Boss.

The quality of Etro suits, however, does not seem to warrant the prices. So just buy on sale. Better quality suits can be had for far cheaper.

I have never tried on Etro shoes though, but they are likely made in the same place in Italy that most Italian shoes are.

Thanks for the feedback Laner. Do you have a link for the tux you mention?

I picked up a dark blue Etro suit with a subtle paisley pattern on sale last year. It's a beauty.

No link, but its on google image search if you look hard enough. I think its been a staple Etro for a while.

This thread has some good looks. http://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-9489.html

Good choice on the suit.

Those etro shoes are nice but very limiting, you cannot wear too often.

Etro clothing is a dandy staple, which I love that style.

How is a Etro suit running these days?

Yes, I think those Etro paisley shoes are a little too dandy-ish. Your clothes are supposed to draw attention to your face. So, a cravat in that design might be ok if it contrasts well with your skin and hair tone.

Here are the Antony Sanders shoes I ordered a few days ago.

Good quality for the price. I'm size 12 and their size 12 fit like a glove.

The most important thing for me was that the brown shade worked perfectly with navy, in my opinion!

Yay or Nay? For spring-fall day wear. Would pair with jeans or chino pants.

I think these are fine and that you could also wear them at night in the summer.

Yeah man, these look great. How's the workmanship? Do they look like they're going to last?

RE: Let's talk shoes
I pronate my feet, specifically my left foot. I wear through the back left part of my left shoe sole too quickly.

I usually buy Steve Madden's, something similar to the ones in the pic, but they don't last long because they're hollow soled shoes as well. (I wear jeans to work, and walk a lot around town in these)

Who makes shoes that will better withstand my mean pronation?

I normally go to Nordstrom Rack, but would go to Macy's. I have to try them on first. Is this just a matter of looking at the sole to tell whether it's solid?

It's not full grain leather ("Genuine Leather"). Leather sole, appears to be Goodyear construction. Wooden heel.

We'll see how they handle two weeks of graduation celebrations...

Still with some good care, I think they'll last a while!

What went wrong with them? Curious to know as I have a pair. I was hesitant to buy them as I have only heard of them as of last year. Mine broke in quick and nicely, and I keep excellent care of my shoes, so I have yet to see any "weak points".

These are a Swedish classic in a similar style to a Timberland. They look more refined, less American street style.

Which ones should I pick? I looked for days for the Tretorn Walden Boot like the one Laner posted but could not find it.

RE: Let's talk shoes
To me all three of those are for metal fab (Ironwork specifically) even though I get they are street shoes they just look like metal fab boots.

Unless your style is 'Site Super just got off running a job now off to a business meeting over drinks' I would stay away from those. You are in Texas, so that style could work for you.

I see style as something that should leave people guessing. Never being able to pinpoint a mans social status, profession, etc is what I personally strive for. I say never let someone confidently judge you based on what you are wearing. 98% men dress to fit an image to fit in. Don't be that guy.

I wore this shoe minimally, but the wood has a small crack at the end.

They are dope, but I wouldn't really pay retail for them (not that I could anyways heh). If you can afford them, I'd say buy them. They go on sale really often though and there are tons of good alternatives. Some brands that carry alternatives from cheaper to more expensive are: kent wang, frank & oak, axel arigato, national standard, svensson, acne studios, eric schedin, etc.

Quote:I have liked their shoes on occasion, but their prices are just ridiculous for for a glued together shoe. Especially how I go through white shoes, I would never dream of paying over $100 for a pair, let alone $450. Its a goddamn sneaker.

Man you can clearly see that the sole is stitched together. No one in their right mind would sell a glued together shoe for 450 bucks.

Words to live by. I'm of the mindset that you can do this pairing work-type boots with a suit, fitted selvedge, or custom printed tee, anything that an ironworker wouldn't wear. Same end result - people will know you're not an ironworker because of the shined boots and fitted denim but...then what is he? Typically ironworker boots are matte finish and completely flat across the bottom as well, those have a bit of heel, but are very similar with the moc toe.

Edit: just clicked the other links, you're right those are straight up ironworker boots. Best to steer clear.
