None at all. Ultimately, at 6'1" I was too short, and quite simply lacked the skills to overcome that disadvantage.
It's very difficult to outplay someone of a similar skill level when they are 4-8 inches taller than yourself and outweigh you by 30-40 lbs.
I hadn't seen "proper" basketball players in the flesh until a few months ago. I hadn't appreciated how absolutely massive those dudes are.

Massive feet too! I saw a pair of Shaq's size 22 shoes on display once, they were ridiculous.

Thank you. Don't know the maker, bought from and labelled Charles Tyrwhitt but we all know they don't make them. Click.



They've got better as they've worn a little and have a few creases. wink

They look really nice.
Are they made in India? I think I know the factory.

Fair enough, I'll make a mental note of your sarcastic humour for future referencethumbup I've also ordered myself a whoosh parrot.

RM Williams boots at a good price if anybody is in the market for a pair.

I tried some of those on quite recently. I thought they looked dated. Fine in the 90s, but a bit too cowboy for today.

Know what you mean, mine are the lighter colour. They really are comfy as chuff, right from the first wear. If the jeans are anything other than a really straight leg then they do look a bit 'Top Gear Presenter', but by and large they get plenty of wear from me.

Interesting, mate of mine who has the Loake factory in India sent me some pics of some shoes he is doing for Tyrwhitt, one of them the same as yours. They are obviously going to do a few at a keener price point.
Really nice styles though.

It could be Loake or Barker but looking at the sole, it looks very much like Barker. Just a hunch.
