that shirt has a great fabric but the cut of the maison shirt is just…i hate it!
it would be so much better as 1950s, 1940s or generation shirt but no. great shirt ruined by the cut itself. the wool sweatshirt is boring, the other grey version looks much more appealing!

OL shoes were made by sanders. so size down one from your trainer size, assuming they havent changed factories.

I'll take the same size as in the mcnairys.

My correspondence with Tres Bien and OL themselves regarding black boots:
Me: Our Legacy black derby boots. What's the width of these like?
TBS: I would say that they're quite wide, what other shoe brands do you have for comparison?
Me: I have UK10 Tricker’s boots which are very slightly too big for me.
TBS: Ok, I would say that they have a pretty similar fit as Tricker's.
Me: In which case I think I’d need 9.5, which you don’t have. Nevermind, thanks anyway. By the way, they’re made by Sander’s right?
TBS: A UK9 would be the same as EU44 and the UK10 is EU45. Yes, they’re by Sander’s. Both McNairy and Our Legacy get their shoes made there.
Me: Cool, thanks.
Me: I’m interested in the black derby boots but I don’t know what size to go for. I’m a UK 9.5 in most British footwear, but sometimes a 10. Which of your Euro sizes is equivalent to UK 9.5? What is the width like? Generous like Tricker’s?
OL: Yes, it's quite generous. They're made in the UK so go for a 44, UK 10.

shirt looks pretty shit to me. pattern is really tacky. maison is such a horrible fit, too.

Thinking about those patent leather slippers, would the maintenance be a hassle though?
