Yeah, those dayton's look good. Pretty much split between the service boot, iron rangers, or 1000 miles. I really wanted something in charcoal, but I haven't found anything in that price range that I liked all that much.
If anybody is in Charlotte, Saint Paul, or Philly in March, go check out City & Colour. Granted, he's playing with pink so that's a downer, but I'm going to stay for his set then duck out. Saw him in Richmond over summer, and he's definitely my favorite artist.
I did wear those Kirkland ones as undershirts for a super long time and they held up pretty well, never as an actual shirt though. Uniqlo is also good, price and quality considered. Probably could look there. And if you want to up it a little Everlane would be worthwhile to check out (and by upping it I mean go from <$10 to $15).
Some super early pics of my NS. I already have some fades forming, though the pictures are obviously a lot more pronounced then normal because of the flash. But I wear them pretty damn hard. Pretty much 6 days out of the week for probably 12+ hours each day walking to and from class. I got them about a month ago today. [[SPOILER]]
Yeah that zeemon coat is pretty damn awesome, but definitely couldn't drop $2700 on it.
Also, those converses remind me too much of those Sorel (and other brands) boots that have the rubber shell on the outside. I hate them. I understand their purpose, but that's all I ever see in terms of boots around here.
