Vans and Puma I hate Nike too. I also never much cared for Converse (I grew up on Vans slip ons).

Is the PBJ one wash?
Picked up a pair of slim bootcuts on ebay recently. They're the newer season (made in USA with back pocket stitching?), I think. But oh my god are the knees ever tight. The waist and thighs fit fine, but I can barely get them over my knees, and even then they feel like they're almost cutting off my legs. Also, the hem measures 8, but the knee measures 7. They seem a bit more "boot cut" than the .5 inch difference people were seeing with the earlier models. I'm not...
I like the pattern, but as a suit it is too much. I think the coat alone might have looked ok. But after seeing this it makes me want to find a black brocade silk scarf with a similar pattern.
Nope. I dislike branding in general. Levi's is the only brand I'll tolerate much external advertising on.
Definitely not the loafers. I think they'd look terrible with a bootcut. I'm not sure about the other two. It would depend on the shoe.
I just bought a pair of raw Sliqs last week. H&M does indeed sell them still. The H&M I visited actually had a pair of last years (?) version with the back pocket stitching in regular color and a more slubby look to them and quite a few newer ones that are much darker with dark back pocket stitching you can barely see and a more sleeker looking denim. I like the new one a lot more. But if you've got 70 dollars to spend, I'd save up a little bit more and get some...
They're definitely not as heavy as APCs. I returned mine because they turned out to be quite a bit baggier than I expected. They're not as bad as the gough as far as being a baggy cut, but they're still way too wide in the hips for me. I ordered a size 30-32 and the waist was about a 31 and the length was actually close to 34. Hem was about 8.5, which might give you an idea on the overall cut as they are a straight leg.
I like having control over the length of my jeans. If I get them hemmed at the "correct" length then I'm pretty much stuck with that for day to day wear. Sometimes I like the stacked look with some shoes, but other times I might want to cuff them short to show a little sock. It just depends on my mood that day.
