After years of dreaming l finally purchased highend cashmere tracksuit pants. I couldn't bare to folk out 1,000 bucks so l eventually got lucky on ebay with a new pair of Derek Rose. It's things like this that can really make a difference - I like to be comfy on a cold night at home, now l can do comfy and cozy at the highest levels.

"The Finley trouser is part of our premium line of luxury contemporary leisurewear, born out of the desire to craft an off-duty wardrobe that matches up to the highest sartorial and quality standards. Our philosophy is to use the finest materials and components, paying attention to every detail of construction, so that the resulting garment is both comfortable and stylish.
The starting point for Finley was the grade of pure cashmere we chose — a luxuriantly soft 12 gauge pure Italian cashmere made by Loro Piana, which we consider to be best in class. Touch this fabric and you'll be reminded what cashmere should feel like. The material hangs wonderfully, for a look that's as luxurious as the feel".

thinking about a pair of Saint Laurent Theo boots.
I'd say low heel Wyatt Chelsea over Theo. The Theo's cuban heel gives it a fat-assed weirdness on the heel which does not go well with the pointy toe.

I'd also take the Wyatt jodhpur over the Theo.

But, horses for courses, YMMV

I think the fit should be o.k. I ordered a small so the legs aren't too long.

I visited my tech guy the other day to fix my computer so l could post pics again, however there is still a downloading problem occurring. After l visit him again l may post a pic of me wearing them, and l will let you know.

Wyatt to me is a bit too generic. I tried on the Theo at Barney's and the heel width is not as wide as pictures depict. I figured if I am going to get SLP, I would get something extreme.

Might return if I change my mind.

Maybe. I sometimes forget you and your boi Raphael got da GheyQuotient™ going on so I should control for that in my responses. You ever checkout Story Et Fall? They have some sexy boots.

My old man had one of these from the 40's that I really dug as a kid as a kid in the 60's so when Nigel Cabourn did this limited run I figured what the hell. Its a wool/alpaca blend which was commonly used as insulation and liners in military cold weather clothing.

Cut like a mechanic's jacket but with a full neck zip. Makes for a warm outer layer in normal winter temps and a good mid layer under a shell for more brutal temps.

Not to everyone's taste but a nice workwear-style piece in my opinion. Very functional as everything Cabourn does is. Extremely well constructed as all of his pieces are. Made in Japan. Unlined like original jackets were. Big, soft fuzz and loft for insulation.

As worn in the famous bigfoot sighting of 1967:

Picked-up a couple of shirts from my shirtmakers yesterday, wasn't sure this one would work and was somewhat disappointed as I thought the blue stripe was darker, so I made sure I wore it today and I think it's winner:

I think the paler stripes are better. Especially with candy stripes. Do you call that candy stripe? What sort of collar did you specify. And is it higher than usual? I like it.

It's got to yellow hairline striped in the white stripe, so really a stripe shirt. Thomas Mason 120s.

It's a spread collar and it is higher than usual to cover my neck operation scar.
