Thanks for the clarification. Curious, why do you say steer clear of the MS models? Is it just an aesthetic thing?Now I'm confused. I am usually a 10.5/11 in American sizes and I emailed PNP with my foot measurment (27.5cm) and they suggested a 44.
All the Guidi talk made me interested in picking up some boots from PNP. I'm going to order one of the 995 models and I have some questions about the different leathers...
The last couple pages have suggested that donkey may be stiffer than horse and has more grain and horse molds to the foot better. The reverse stag is interesting in a rough out kind of way.
Any other opinions/ thoughts?
Primarily, I'm looking for the one that will look the best BEAT UP.
I wouldn't buy it if you are expecting it to be a daily driver. I have always had unusual cars and live by the dictum that I'd rather pay for occasional repairs than have a car payment. If you are looking for an older Mercedes that will last forever and still have some retro appeal, take a look at the mid 80's 300D turbo diesels, which is what I currently drive.
The older ones like you linked are a bit more classic but they are more finicky, less reliable, parts are...
Nice pickup. I've had my eye on those for a while but thought they were gone after they sold out of the brown on ssense or wherever it was.
Jesus...now I remember why I've never spent more than five minutes on Gilt. What a nightmare. So, they have flash sales on specific groups of items, then that's it? So are those Raf boots done?
Lane, looks great. Layers and colors are cohesive and complement each other well. Because of the drape or otherwise, the clothes look lived-in and worn, in a good way, unlike so many of the fresh-out-of-the-box fits on here. You've caught a lot of shit on SF and while this look may not be the norm around here, I dig it and the fit. And much improved from previous fits.
What's that multiplier formula for determining relaxed/ slim/ skinny fit from body measurements? Also, when people make sizing mistakes, is it more common to err on the side of too tight or too big? Just sent in measurements for a GDL/UMDR and I'm second-guessing myself like crazy.
