if it's not too much trouble, could you post pics? very curious about what they actually look like. the AE at my mall didn't have any of the oxfords, yet they still had flip flops in every color in stock

the regular/slim cords run true to size. the skinny ones, however, i find myself sizing up one inch or else they'd be skin tight (they have a hint of elastic in them i believe)
thoughts on a sperry topsider chukka?
was considering getting a pair of desert boots in beeswax leather but already have a pair in grey and want something less sleek and more clunkier, yet still maintaining a slim profile because i'm 5'5" 120 lbs and "real" boots (red wings, timbs, etc) look like clown shoes on me. enough with my rambling. i'm pretty set on a pair of sperry chukkas but don't know whether to go for brown suede or brown leather.

I'm looking for plain black that just flies under the radar. I have difficult to fit feet, want to spend under $100, and live in a snowy country...
how about a pair of zig zags?

if you don't mind me asking, how much did the mods cost you? i've been looking for an affordable military watch,...

20" for sure. most 24" cruisers will not take the beating a 20" will.
other tips when shopping for a kid's bmx bike:
-a rear brake will suffice, no need for a front one
-a detangler (ie gyro) is unnecessary for a first bmx bike, it messes up brake feel and he's not going to be doing barspins any time...
any recs for a slim black casual oxford or derby a la rachel comey or common projects that cost a lot less? is this too much to ask for? i'm a broke college student so if i should stick to my shitty zig zags and save up my money for more packs of pbr then feel free to slap some sense into me.
