Honestly I'm not the biggest fan of the MDR. I think it looks kinda neutered. Go with the 2010 with the buckles and scalloped hem. The design itself is iconic enough for it's "flashiness" isn't really an issue. You're still wearing a pretty familiar, recognized design. I would say differently if it were a stone gray julius with 28" sleeves and a holster.
As someone who has got a toj in that leather, it's honestly worth dieting for if you find it too slim. I mean, unless it's sized for someone half your size or something.
My small contribution:and more here (warning boot tuck!)I have not seriously styled it tucked, but covering 80% of that nubuck just seems like such a waste so I may work it in. [[SPOILER]]
I have had these hemmed and tapered to show off tall footwear better. I'm just not at the point where I can rock a slightly slouchy fit. The fabric used here is my favorite part. I included some close-ups so you can see the contrast between pieces. It seems slightly waxy but subdued; distressed but nowhere near drkshdw/ro. 15.5 - 16 waist 11.5 - 10 thigh 11 rise 6.5 hem; just under, 6.5 but leg is a little wider. 27 inseam; longer relaxed rise means leg fits longer.
This is in pristine, essentially unworn condition. I don't believe I ever wore it out. Sightly nautical, will pair well with APC for your 70s french sailor kick. Cotton/Cash blend. Hung only for pics, of course. Price Drop--this is new without tags!
Bought from here and I didn't wear very frequently. Button was loose so it's been reinforced, and these were originally 32" inseam but they're right at 30" now.
I've worn these out once so they're in great condition (minus a snag on the green trimming on the right boot--see pic for detail). I magic-erasered the vibram sole; you'll probably want to do similarly if you want to keep them close to white. I usually take an 8 in sneakers and 7 in shoes/boots, and these fit just a little snug so you will have some flexibility regarding sizing if you're a little smaller.
Just read the latter half of the thread. What the fuck
Looking to replace my standby wet-weather boots (red wing GT). I want something a little taller and more elegantly shaped. Think a higher and straighter instep, a raised but pointed toe box, simple punched eyelets without hardwear, thicker sole. Goodyear stitching is okay. An angular, sidezip combat is what I want. I like KVA and CP, and I have Raf but not sure I want to put those through water regularly. Are there options I haven't explored? Danner service boot sounds...
Oh right, I hear "olive" and immediately think about the Italian calf skin greens. I'm not one for fishtails but that one up there is looking damn slick.
