The Made in England Docs are absurdly overpriced. They run 40,000 yen here at the DM store. I wanted to buy some Siano Docs for my wife but they felt like garbage in my hands, shame because they're pretty cute and my wife likes em. Makes it worse thinking how I paid that same amount of money for brand new Tricker's Stows.
I have been mostly unengaged with Styleforum for a while and just started coming back to post and read and now I'm catching up with this whole debacle. Wow. I have known Drew for years, and he and Dan were my two best friends when I lived in Korea. I lost contact with Drew some time around his divorce, though I still know his ex wife, she never told me about any of this mess. It really hurts to see how this has all unfolded, not because he's a victim here, but because...
Picked up the Buried Giant and am savoring this one little by little. Its sweet and somber like Ishiguro's other novels, I'm already dreading the inevitable bittersweet heartbreak.
This place is a discussion board at its core and I think there's no reason why we couldn't have people posting review threads, especially for shoes that are harder to come by, like m-moriabc. If people are not interested it'll fall off the front page and if they are it'll stay alive. Either way, something to read and more shoe porn to look at while bored in the office will be welcome all round I reckon. As a personal taste issue I've never been a fan of official...
I guess if someone is gonna bring back the #flarez, @Fuuma is the man for the job.
I love a good quilted jacket. What did they do with Beams?
Don't know about the Barrie last but I'm a 10D in most lasts I've tried and for the Stow a 9 is an ideal fit. If you normally go with a half-size added conversion for UK to US size, consider getting a half size smaller in the Stow.
I suppose it takes a bit of that to post pics of yourself in front of a mirror on the Internet For what it's worth, their Tokyo store is sensationally named "M'Arijuan" http://www.dartisan.co.jp/shop/tokyo/
Stumbled upon the Studio D'Artisan store in Osaka last weekend while doing some New Years traveling and am a firm believer in their menswear brand ORGUEIL now. Everything made in Japan, top quality 1930s style Americana gear and fits really slim - a 38 on my wiry frame was perfect. Honestly fills a similar niche to FW14 Junya but unsurprisingly costs much less. Couldn't resist and bought their 'Old Surge Jacket', fits like a dream and is pure quality, as you'd expect from...
Been deliberating over this for weeks myself. My wife like Sorel Chayennes but they are too utilitarian for rainy days in the city, my preference being for the classic Hunter wellies. At any rate I am not allowing myself to suffer another Japanese rainy season without proper footwear.
