+1. The "classic" black lamb is probably best for people who run cold and like a lot of insulation in their clothes. Personally I run hot and thus only really wear my goat TOJ/Falcon jackets.
I think Hedi Slimane makes sense as a successor to Yves Saint Laurent - who else is doing that sort of mainstream chic/luxury fashion design at such a high level these days?Thought Berge's point about H&M/Zara was interesting (i.e. that's where the action is these days). Feel like the trend, at least among NYC yuppie women these days, is to exclusively shop for clothes at those kinds of "high street" stores and then focus big spending on status symbol accessories (e.g....
That's odd. I went to the Sloane St store a few weeks ago and told the guy I was just browsing and don't really wear the SLP style and he roped me into trying on the various "iconic" pieces like the nut Wyatt boots, teddy jacket, double rider "just for fun".Was also surprised that the jackets fit pretty decently since I don't have a SLP build. Seems like it's working if they're tweaking the patterns to broaden the audience.
Could you elaborate on what you mean by efficient here? Having a hard time between the Field IS, Node, and the Monitor Down. Think the Field IS looks the best but unsure if would be as warm as the down ones. Would appreciate any thoughts!
That sounds really interesting - would love to see photos (if that's at all feasible)
Serious Q - is it possible to put a vibram on the CP crepe sole? I thought about it but sole didn't look replaceable like a goodyear welted sole as I think BV chelseas have. I saw some online cobbler that offers crepe sole replacement for clarks but couldn't tell how good the workmanship would be.
Can't speak to the actual longevity of the CPs but I had the same experience as Bertdinner -- tried them on, really liked the shape and comfort, returned them because the sole was clearly not going to last
I like options #2/#3 but have found LVC and the Japanese makers to have short inseams on predistressed jeans. Personally have had better luck with RRL, J. Crew and Uniqlo (the stretch selvedge in particular).
Pretty sure DK paid all required taxes - one of the reasons he required payments to be indicated as "for goods" rather than gifts on Paypal was so they could be processed through the Paypal IRS reporting system.
YMMV guys. I was just talking about the basic white leather/grey suede GATs which I bought full price from fwrd.com. Leather is genuinely cheap and got creased up after a couple wears just like a pair of $60 nikes, would be just preposterous to compare it to hermes leather. Would not expect suede etc. to behave the same way of course. Shoes are very comfy though, no doubt about that. CPs can be comfy too when broken in if you size right. In fact the most comfortable...
