So @afterthesuit and I inadvertently played wardrobe freaky Friday today. If you caught his post he’s wearing a sportcoat, denim, and no tie👌🏻. I was actually inspired by my own flat lay and grabbed flannel trousers and even a tie 🤷🏼‍♂️. Strange, maybe it’s a full moon 🌝

@spiermackay @hardyminnis tobacco fresco jacket and denim shirt, @drakesdiary pocket square via @nomanwalksalone, and @rampleyandco pocket square.

Review time, gather ‘round! 👞
.
Please give a read below on my first impressions of the Henry loafer from @cobblerunion. They were kind enough to send me this pair for free in exchange for my honest feedback.
.
The Henry loafers looked great out of the box, no scuffs or marks from rolling around in shipping. Stitching was clean all around the shoe apart from one small section on the welt where the stitch gets a bit close to the edge, nothing major. I really like the last and split toe style of the Henry. Another cool thing is the signature red quilted heel cushion; it’s visually stunning and gives the shoe instant brand recognition without actually slapping a logo on it.
.
The grain leather itself is rugged yet refined. Though it is a pebble grain it is not as heavily embossed as I have seen from other makers, and I appreciate the subdued look. After a couple wears the leather is supple enough that it is breaking in quickly and starting to roll, they are going to look great as they continue to wear. The only thing I noticed with them is an ever so subtle shade difference between the left and right foot. This is probably indistinguishable to any normal person 😂. They have to be right next to each other to even have a shot at spotting it but the left shoe leans more brown and the right has a bit more orange undertone to it. Once I am wearing them I do not even notice though.
.
On sizing, I followed the advice on the site to size down a half from normal UK and they fit me really well. They were comfortable straight out of the box with no heel slippage.
.
I am a big fan of these loafers and they will be a staple in my rotation this fall. I am really looking forward to breaking them out along side some tweed sport coats. The Henry loafer is a true three-season piece of footwear and hits the right sweet spot for me
.
Let me know what you think of them in the comments! 🙌🏻

#sundayinspiration from @mrporterlive and photograph by @aks. I have no idea the maker of the jacket in this photo but it’s perfect looking from this small peek at it. If anyone can identify it, let me know.
.
How do you guys like balmacaan jackets? they are pretty much top of my list right now for outerwear. If you have any other suggestions on brands to check out that may have one this year, let me know in the comments.

Two for one day because @miloh.shop wants me to wear these @vibergboot boondockers more and I just happen to be right now. Show and prove as they say. Cuffed up @wilhelmclothes denim by @epaulet. Pretty sure I’ll need to see my friends at @shopnaqp for a chainstich hem soon enough...

I few fall new releases creeping into the mailbox which is a great sign. It’s not often I find denim I like but this new pair from @wilhelmclothes via @epaulet should prove to be a great addition. Higher rise, athletic taper, and an easy to wear 14oz raw denim. Forgive the no cuff as I just have them rolled under until I break them in a bit and take them for a hem.
.
The other new addition here is the @epaulet corduroy Doyle jacket. I’ve pretty much made it my mission to drape myself if corduroy this winter 😂. Paired with a @spiermackay polo, @hm_man shawl cardigan (which I actually bought years ago because I couldn’t fit one of the Epaulet heirloom cardigans in the budget). The belt is olive chromexcel leather and is also from Epaulet and the chelseas are from @myrqvist.se @herrstil.
.
What do you guys think of the new items? How do you think the new denim will work with sportcoats?

I get the question of “how many loafers do you own?” more than a few times. So as we draw closer to the end of loafer season I thought it would not be right for an impromptu family portrait. I sadly had my @paulevansny pair at work so they aren’t in, and I didn’t count camp mocs and boat shoes. It’s a pretty good representation of the collection though.
.
Clockwise from the top: @berwick1707_official for @leatherhealer Belgian loafer, @2120handcrafted, @morjasshoes tassel, @meerminmallorca unlined softcalf, @loftung via @skoaktiebolaget Utah wholecut, trio of @aldenshoeco LHS in snuff suede, color 8 and whiskey shell cordovan, and lastly, @cobblerunion Henry grain.
.
The wild thing is that over the years I probably have sold off just as many pairs. Building a shoe collection is a lot of trial and error for me, that’s part of the fun and journey imo. Plus I’m fickle and my tastes and wardrobe evolve.
.
What do you guys think is missing? What should I consider next? The one I have on my wish list is the @edwardgreen1890 Piccadilly in dark oak. I owned it briefly but had to sell because of a fit issue.
