You talkin' 'bout black shoes on SF? Come on, man!
When I think of gunboats, I ONLY think of burnished chestnut pebble grain. The old chestnut Florsheim Imperial is the one true gunboat, in my mind. I remember going into a Florsheim store with my Dad as late as the early 80s and being shocked at the prices. All I could think of was he's about to buy some hella expensive shoes but won't buy me some Jordans. Funny thing is if he had bought me those Chicago Jordan 1s then and I had kept them in good condition, they would...
Yup, return those. I mean, I could understand if the color of the stitch was a shade off but they straight up used the the wrong color thread. Alden's QC is out of hand. You pay near $600 for a pair of boots that aren't what you expected. Unacceptable. Contrast stitching vs tone on tone stitching is a big difference regardless on whether you're ok with the result. It's wrong, that's it. They should apologize for the error, not blow smoke up your a$$ about how the...
Is it new? I know that some SARBs are not covered by warranty in the US but I think some sellers offer some type of coverage. If your covered, I'd send it back. If it's not covered under warranty then read this link.DISCLAIMER. DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!That said, I dropped one of my Seiko automatics and it started to run fast. Like, a couple minutes an hour fast. You state that your watch is only running a couple min. fast a day so it may not be the same problem that...
^ Perfect for a day like today in the Bay. I need a nice pebble grain shoe for the all this rain we're having.
Cool. Not my size but thanks for the link.
Anyone have the link to the DB linen Zenga up there? No link and I couldn't find it using search.
The difference is basically city vs. country. A double sole is used mainly on bluchers (open lacing). It's a less formal or "country" shoe/boot. A single sole shoe is mainly used with oxfords (closed lacing). Historically, I think is comes from people in the country needing a heavier duty shoe to wear while on rough roads or cobblestones. You wouldn't need anything so robust in the city so no need for a thick chunky sole. As for comfort, I don't think there is much...
This is the only issue I have with Gustin jeans. Anyone know why certain pairs sew up small? Is it the person cutting the patterns or maybe the material itself?I had to return a pair that were sewn up way small. The rise was an inch short of the chart and that's not a little bit. I could button them but it looked like I was wearing some low rise joints. I have another pair in the same size that are my best fitting jeans ever. Gustin cust. serv. is great though, they...
A Korean tailor taking appts. in London and taking payment in Swedish Krona? LOL, what the hell is going on here?
