Fancied these Choos (click) from the side, as they're shot in the look book (Jimmy that is, not Fo Man*). The name is Bedford. The colour, Cognac, is particularly fanciable. Am now a trifle cautious about them. Can do Chukka, but never got on with Chelsea types (boots that is, not Sloanes). These aren't really Chelsea, but more a zip-Chelsea fusion thing. They're beautifully made things, and the shapes is good, just get the odd glimpse of what looks like those tan pull on boots workmen wear.

They're just a touch more rounded, wider and rocker-esque than what one is used to. That said they're madly elegant, and will adjust. In light of being revved up by Trussardis AW12 show (click) gonna see how they drop with a suit. Whadda ya fink? Boots and suits or smart strides has got to be the way forward (no one say S&B'd for Christs sake- men's dressing cliche lyric No.1)

Gonna give it a whirl, but just don't think can handle with demin. Too, too rocker for me. Maybe there is a new direction ahead that not aware of, but doubt it. Talking of new direction, one notices the kids are wearing Dr.Martin's again. Bless. Here they are (see video) second time around. What are we on now? Fifth I reckon. Mr.Hare says about once every five years using his special shoe equation. Any more offers?

Stubbs out.

Take it away Feargal...

* who wears a Mandarin collar FYI.
