what r u looking for? standard R&R gear, or their dressier stuff

Standard R&R I think, like their western/americana style shirts/jackets/knits

Something like £50-60 a shirt, £100-150 on knits/other stuff

siding with the second pair. less pointy

Where can I get these shoes from Swede, I like the look of them.


I have the top ones and some different ones on the same last as the second pair. The rounded ones are actually fairly tightly rounded and not the same kind of style you would see from chuch's or cheaney for example. Both lasts are exactly the same length. Top ones are a bit more on the chiselled side and are basically a copy of the Crockett and Jones Hallam oxfords which are to my eye a perfect dress shoe. Bit of a task to break them in. Their higher level line leathers are much softer and easier to break in.

Love this so much but are these things wearable?

Like it. Great with navy shorts and birkies.

Beer garden acceptable, but needs to be roasting

I think you need to be really wiry and tanned to pull it off.

I hate wearing shoes/trainers during the summer but I'm tired of Bostons and Arizonas. Men are so limited in their options.

Quite into these Malibu X Missoni hurache efforts. What do we reckon?

Wish the soles weren't so thick. Remind me of Sketchers or those MBT monstrosities.

How about these Fracaps? Can't believe I'm so into spicy sandals atm.
