    I don't wear anything with leather soles in the rain. Men's shoes kind of put up with that sort of abuse. Women's shoes, not so well.

    So far even women’s boots in leather soles seem to keep my feet dry, but I don’t go seeking puddles to step in.  Maybe boots have thicker/more sole layers since people tend to wear them more in wet weather.

I'm not asking to be a jackwagon, I actually just bought such a coat myself, and I am slightly puzzled by this feature. I figured that maybe I bought too small of a size, or that the coat is not proportioned to me, but it fits otherwise, and maybe that's just the style. I'm new to this area of clothing.

    Another example of women’s tops being fit for their shorter torsos.  


  3. It’s a fun idea, and perhaps we get a tiny step closer with each meetup with each other.  @spikesmike and I met up tonight.  It’s too cold for wearing this dress but these are the heels I had on.  Not that anyone would think anything unusual about it compared to what @spikesmike was wearing!

    London is very convenient for so many places. All the airlines now are avoiding Iraq and Iran airspace - I’m sure it’s quite safe to fly east from here to Asia.

    There are some exceptions to watch for now.  Qatar airways is banned from Saudi and Egyptian airspace and I think still flies over Iran.  Their flights show up here as cheap routes because they do have US destinations.

    To date no one has responded with the slightest enthusiasm. Excuses like - OH, I don't want my children to find about me, OR, What would people think if they saw me in heels in public. ETC. 

    Do you live near Columbus?  I am heading out to Dublin late tonight, and the only shoes I have packed are 4.2” heels.

    Make your annual trip to Vietnam a round the world one.

    For the last decade when I took trips to Singapore and Bangkok I connected through London.  It always works out to be fewer legs since we have so many directs to LHR from the US.  Though given the current situation in the Middle East maybe it’s better to go around the other way now.  


  6. US domestic and international flights are essentially two completely different products, and even the airlines they do both have to distinct policies between the two in order to adequately compete in both.  US domestic is like a bus, international is like an overnight train.  They make it a point to make the experiences different because that is what the market will bear.

    Just because it's a grocery store doesn't mean people need to dress like slobs. Nice going! I've gone grocery shopping in heels a few times, it's awesome. :)

    I do it all the time!  Also, I find pushing a shopping cart in heels kind of fun - anyone else feel the same way?

    There might not be much to like about the overall looks. And certainly much has been taken from women's causal looks with the cross-cross,  "slashes", and one shoulder styles.  But with so many designers showing heels and boots this might catch on.  Showing styles with  boots outside pants, no matter how high the heels is, makes it more "mainstream" for me to wear my Jessica Simpson stiletto boots outside my skinny jeans.

    I like to think of it as the fashion industry is following my lead.  When will they catch up to the 4 inch stiletto look? :giggle:

    Exactly!  I see this on the runway

    and think... belted blazer, aviator cap, this is what I've already been wearing the whole time!

  9. Rick is pretty avant-garde, but in those circles so many people really wear Rick Owens pieces that people have started getting tired of it lol.  Given the kind of cult following Rick has in designer male fashion, I think this hints that broader acceptance of men in heels is trending.  
     

    I like Dries Van Noten’s FW20 Collection too - belted blazers, tall lace-up boots, furs, broaches, evening gloves - seems like men’s fashion is finally beginning to not be so afraid of feminine association.
