Them russel mocs are insane, jp market obviously?

got my ranger mocs, sooner than expected. Randomly came up on shoemart:

Thanks for the sizing advice on here.

So happy with em, need to get em topyed up then I'm gonna turn into an old man and wear high wasted chinos and pendletons for the rest of my life:

Cool

If you don't mind them being made in England, Cordings do a good medium/high rise Chino in a range of colours without a slim hem.

I believe Eric Clapton owns part of the company now.

I thought about trying loafers with white socks but I think I need another 10 years before I start. I think the idea is you have to size down a little to keep em on your feet.

Any sizing advice for Padmore P204s and P500s? Up or down from say Nike hair force wun?

Size down from your shoe size rather than Nike size though.

I'm a 9 in Nikes but 7 in wallys

ok, thanks, good advice, think I'll just do UK9s (US10-10.5 in forces but don't want my Padmores to fit on the small side)

Now I got 4 work shoes I might as well make it 5 for a full week rotation, casual Fridays done. Always wanted P&Bs too, since the Supreme collab, will do well with my growing collection of vintage Polo old man wear mixed with Masterpiece Sport..workwear done for decades..

considered Manhunts for years as well of course but P&B fits in better with real world grown man shit, Jap imitations are less and less appealing. Yeah sure taps BC pants are rad but they always come up short (unlike BDUs) and you just want to go to the original inspirations, in consistent sizing with endless backup pieces..same with wally's, you want legacy gear at my age, no fucking around with obscurity, just decent accessible shit that is consistent..still love to mix in my otaku taps x porter and MP though.. it just fails as a real life regular option, even Supreme does now, just too much bullshit and inconsistency to rely on..

Manhunts are cool and a superior shape in my opinion but p&b and wallies are a lot more comfy. I've been wearing a pair of wallies for work for a long time at multiple jobs. Had some steel toe red wing oxfords (hand me down from dad) that died while working at ups last year and have been wearing wallies ever since for work (carpet cleaning now)

should get some proper work pants though don't like wearing my nice supreme ones doing it
