Sneakers are Common Projects, so far I am pleased with them. Been wearing them for the last eight months, very comfortable, good quality. I'm not convinced that they are really worth the full price, but as they were on sale, I couldn't pass the opportunity.   I am usually using Collonil range for my footwear, but for the Mr. Hare I did go with additional maintenance which has masked the issues a bit. I will take them to a professional soon to repair the soles, but I...
I will try, I guess customer feedback is always welcome.   Here are the pics:                            Sneakers I bought the same day (which were abused a bit):         Shoes from 2010:  
Is this the right place for a WTB post? I am looking for a pair of Paul Smith Cage shoes off-white, new or in very good condition. I bought a pair back in 2009 and they remained my favorite pair ever since. They are still in very good condition, but I would like to find a second pair. I've been lurking on different sites and Ebay for almost two years now and couldn't find a single pair in UK 11, so if you could point me to the right direction, I would be very...
Thanks Bam!ChairDance, I was thinking of doing this when I first bought them, but as I'm far from any repair shop or service center (I presume) I decided to cut my loss, mask the leather issues every time before putting them on, not to wear them when their state may be an issue (meetings with clients or higher management) etc. I can get maybe another 6 months out of wearing them, so it should be fine.   I'm not saying that all their shoes are bad, just that I personally...
Here's my experience with a pair of Mr Hare Bernad Green shoes:   Bought them for about 250 Euros at official retailer last March (2014) on sale as brand new shoes with a box. No seconds, not factory damaged, not a display pair or anything similar, but a regular pair of new shoes. The main reasons for the purchase were the design, color and overall impression of the shoes/brand itself.   It was not long after the purchase that I started regretting getting...
IMO, the waterproofness is not the major issue, I think the thinning of the material in some areas like elbows etc. is a more serious problem.
You have white parka and red field jacket in 52 on Yoox right now. Pricing is ok, I'm just not sure if it comes with or without inner jacket (I would say without).
Padded inner available on Yoox...
As a big fan of Ten C and other Harvey's/Pungetti's work, I must admit that this water proof thing is disappointing. I am very well aware that virtually all fine water proof materials lose some of their characteristics over the time, but this is too soon. My Ventile jackets are still almost 100% water proof, and I know that waxed jackets lose their ability faster than Ventile, but on the other hand they could be re-waxed.   Having said that, I am sure that the Ten C...
  Does this mean that the material thins up with wear? I get it regarding the water proof issue, but I am curious to find out if thinning out of the material could eventually cause lacerations in the end, especially elbows etc? Material does look strong, and one of the major selling points is 'jacket for life' policy...
