Interesting hypothesis.  Desert boots are the kind of boots that look better with a bit of wear  . One might just hang onto them thus negating another purchase.  .

I've actually had a pair of dessies resoled before now, he took it down to the leather and glued on new crepes

Didn't know they would do that and l suppose one would have to find the right cobblers. .

As usual, Uniqlo launch yet another take on the Harrington (G9 in this case): pros: outer fabric is 100% cotton, they offer a couple interesting colours aside of the classic navy and tan (the green in the picture and a red/burgundy) and of course the price (50 ); cons: no umbrella yoke or flap pockets, but still a decent-looking jacket to knock about:

I know from speaking to vintage sellers that demand there has gone down, in tandem with people not having events / clubs to go to

For myself, I don't wear suits around the house that often - it's very much casual moving into smart casual

No real need to dress-to-impress when you're watching a live stream from someone's kitchen!

I've certainly changed the way I dress over the last year. Now I tend to just lounge about the house in my jammies all day while working from home

That just goes to show an obviety: weather determines or should determine your clothing/footwear choices... if you aren't a clobber addict like ours, that is!  ;D I've got at least 4 coats and a couple macs that I get in rotation for hardly a month each year (the raincoats see more use, as I can wear them some Spring/Fall days in our odd downpour). Same with too many thick jumpers that I only get to wear more often when I go to my Pyrenees place.

Truth is proportionally I stock more Spring/Summer items, like dozens of short sleeves cotton/wool tops, but still I know I have more clothes that I need, and a bunch of them are used maybe twice a year.

Take for instance cord shoes; contrary to your point of view, I tend to see them more as a Fall/Winter stuff than Spring/Summer, and overall I get MUCH more use of my suede shoes than of the leather ones all year round.
Having an unusually dry Winter here so far, may have to dig my cord shoes out of storage...

Rain, ice, snow, more rain and more snow predicted.  I think my cord boots and shoes will be firmly staying in storage until much later this year.

Paul, right now same weather conditions here  :(. Currently wearing leather loafers (it never snows here, just heavy drizzle all day long)

Rafa, I see parts of Spain are currently knee deep in snow with unfortunately a small number of fatalities. I hope you and yours are all ok.

Thanks for your concern, Paul. We live in a coastal town so no snow nearby. It's colder than usual but that's that.

Thanks for that in advance, Ian. Looking forward to a Top 30 list that doesn't include "Taylor, GaGa, or Bieber"... ;)

well...

No, it doesn't Mike  ;D ;D ;D

I knew I could count on you  ;D  Every "Best of list" I've run across so far, from "serious" publications and programs seem to be all of the one's listed above!

Have to say Taylor swifts album was very good.  Have you heard any of those albums you list?

Yeah, actually it's not a secret,  I have.
I've heard parts of their latest offerings. Enough to know I'm not interested in hearing any more. TS's country pop never interested me, although I guess with her latest with the guy from "the National" she's dropped just singing about her ex's.. Likewise was never a fan of  GaGa's dance pop(although my hair dresser was a BIG fan). She has a decent voice, and from what I heard of her Tony Bennett duets could be a good singer if she was inclined to learn jazz vocals from jazz artists. That might interest me.
As far as Bieber goes, well.... he's "Bieber" after all.
Although he has some cool tats I hear.
