At the core of it, it all boils down to; do people notice that you're dressed in a different way? And, if they do, are they going to criticize you for it? It depends on the standard dress where you live...
Definitely. Shoes, more than anything else, make or break a look; you can dress up all you want, but if your shoes look like shit, or don't mesh with what you're wearing, it's going to look like crap. Though, I suppose I should say that it's less the quality of the shoe, and more the context. If you can make a shoe work with what you're wearing, then it's like anything else. But, like I said, I really think that shoes are perhaps the one thing you can't afford to mess...

Picked up a pair of beeswax from Nordstrom Rack yesterday ($49.99!) and I can't wait to beat the hell...

It's a shame, really, since most of this stuff looks...
I usually don't hear much from my friends. There are comments every now and then about something or other, but I usually take it in stride, and it's generally not criticism - or, if it is, it's more like a playful jab about how I overdress or something. More often than not, though, I hear nothing; it's just generally excepted that I dress a certain way, and it's not anything outlandish, everything just fits well. I suppose the slimmer cut in my clothes might lead to more...

They're also offering some "Raw Selvedge" in their Matchstick cut, Kaihara denim.Right Here. At that price, you're probably better off grabbing some APC's or something, but I'd love to see what these look like.

What is the consensus with sizing? I read one or two sizes down from usual sizing for APC, but also read they will stretch a bit with wear? Thanks APC NS sizing works roughly like this; subtract two from your waist size, and then an additional size if you...

Frankly, I'm sort of glad to see selvedge denim become more widely available. Selvedge never equaled quality, anyway, but at least this says that people up top are paying attention.
