  1. The other day in central London (Jermyn Street, the traditional home of high class men's tailoring) I saw an older man (he might have been younger than me!) probably in his 60s or maybe even 70s, smartly dressed with a pair of short western style booties. Maybe 3" heel.
  2. Nothing as dramatic as your siting but I've occasionally seen women wearing surprisingly high heels while walking dogs. Along local footpaths (decently surfaced) as well as in the street.
  3. If you are on a desktop or laptop there are plenty of free resizing apps that work from the right click menu. That's true for Windows and Linux. I can't speak for Mac. On my old-ish Android phone I can do a certain amount of resizing natively. Don't know if it's good enough for this forum which is quite restrictive on file size because I always post from my desktop or laptop.. Don't know what Iphones can do.
  4. He's got an actual shop: https://maps.app.goo.gl/i2cKJV8A45JYkK339 It's less than five miles from my house.
  5. These may be very nice boots but we can't see them unless we are members of the site you have linked to.
  6. My stepped drills go up to 32mm which covers a lot of electrical and plumbing applications.
  7. A stepped drill or cone cutter is ideal for enlarging existing holes.
  8. One trick for using a holesaw without the centre bit is to drill a hole in a piece of scrap wood, using the centre bit in the usual way. Then use this as a guide when drilling the wanted item. Ideally clamp the guide and wanted item together. Works perfectly in my experience.
  9. I've just bought these: https://www.asos.com/devils-advocate/devils-advocate-heeled-cuban-boots-in-leopard/prd/204126104#colourWayId-204126112 I needed to go up a size. Lower heel than my other leopard print boots from Asos but they are real leather. All indications on the website and box is that these were expensive boots - over £200 originally. I paid £46 by getting new customer discount, easily done by signing up with a different email address. They seem well made and comfortable but I haven't yet worn them outside. Soles, although synthetic, are a bit slippery. I'll rough them up before wearing outside.
  10. The other day I went to see a play. I was wearing some colourful trousers with 3" heel black ankle boots with slim block heels. Nobody seemed to notice except for one women who generously complimented me on my heels. She said they were cuban, which they weren't. I thanked her.
  11. Search for men's heels at Asos. Not the best quality but you should find something you like.

    Cali World

    If you need a song for that part of the world it could be "The Lass of Richmond Hill" or "On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at"
  13. I'm not sure if these boots have high heels or not but it doesn't matter. The whole idea is simply and wonderfully bananas. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-68297196 Not sure if people outside the UK can see this.
  14. I think it looks horrible. Walking badly in heels isn't a good look. My opinion. others may differ.
  15. Five star review of the show: https://www.broadwayworld.com/westend/article/Review-FASCINATING-AIDA-40TH-ANNIVERSARY-SHOW-London-Palladium-20240205 Although some people do dress up for the theatre in London, I don't think there's any mainstream London music or theatre venue that would have any objection to jeans and trainers. This may be less true out of London where theatre isn't so readily available. This isn't the photo I was thinking of but here's Michelle O'Neill in classic 3" courts: https://www.politics.co.uk/reference/michelle-oneill-profile/ Some photos of her in 3"+ courts here: https://apnews.com/article/northern-ireland-government-sinn-fein-stormont-brexit-33dae8ed4649c9386366e2dcd73f7391
