Yeah, I tried that, but I get super huge bows. I may get another pair of laces for normal dress shoe tying and keep these for wrapping. I just tried wrapping twice, tying a knot in the arch and then tucking the ends under the wraps and it seems to work okay, so that's good. Thanks for the info about the heel cut too
layer-0 cordovan (i think?) derbies first pic seller's, second is mine. how do you get the laces to stay like the first image? I'm baffled
Got these Layer-0s in yesterday. Cordovan I think, very stiff and sturdy but surprisingly comfy. Really happy with them Interesting note: I was comparing these shoes to my MA+ boots, and it looks like they may have been made in the same place. Or at least, the sole is exactly the same as far as I can see (aside from the double heel on the MA+). ((ps- how are you supposed to tie the laces in order to wrap as in the first pic? They aren't long enough to go around...
whoa Inaisce is done/defunct?
Thinking about trying out these zara tees. $60 for two with free shipping and returns, sounds pretty safe to me. What do you guys think, worth giving it a shot?
I never posted these here, but I did end up taking exact measurements for the wallet pattern. Here they are if you're thinking of making one, troika
if you still want a bag you could consider making a canvas lining, might give it some more structure
There's a little part of me that misses the raw denim from my americana days and working in the shop is the only place where I'd actually break them in and they'd be useful
yeah sorry, tough was maybe the wrong word. What I meant is I have to bend down, squat, crouch, etc a lot in the studio and I don't want to do that in pants with weird spiral seams and stuff bc I don't know how they would react to that stress. Usually the only thing the pants will be exposed to is sawdust and sweat (if I'm using paint or varnish I switch to extremely shitty jeans i keep in the shop that already have paint and fiberglass all over them).So, maybe n&f's...
Can anyone recommend a pair of reasonably priced dark grey raw denim? I need something tough enough to wear in my studio but that still looks decent and I have too many black pants. I was gonna go with these unbrandeds but they're sold out and being discontinued I'd like to spend under $150 and lower would be even better. Should I just go with these grey naked and famous, or are there better options? (also, how much stretch in the waist can I expect in the n&f? at least...
