I'm thinking about trying out some more fancy socks with streetwear and would love some inspiration! What kind of socks do you wear? Any interesting patterns or colours? (I've already checked out the sock porn thread over at men's clothing, but it doesn't really show streetwear and socks. ) I'm also looking for a web store with a large selection of nice socks, at a reasonable price and with international shipping. (I know there was a thread about this a long time...

How well does the beeswax model stand up to rain and snow? Can I use some water resistant impregnation spray on them? Used a lot of sued before, but I'm new to beeswax.

Most of these jeans are over $200 though as most all of the japanese repro company jeans are. Skull 5010 6x6 are sold at self edge, Blue in green, and some other sites. Slim fit, maybe slightly more so than APC NS with really nice looking denim. There have been issues with stitching, but some have good experiences,...

I was hoping to pay under $200, but I don't know how much quality I would get for that. I will pay more if it's necessary. I don't really know that much about fits. Maybe similar to APC NS? My style mostly consist of solid colour tees and shirts with cardigans.
I'm thinking about investing in a pair of entry level raw japanese selvedge denim. Which brad and model should I look in to? There is too much to choose from.
