what's up with the jogger pant / elasticized hem trend? a lot of labels are putting out pants with this shit and it drives me nuts. i am down with drawstring waistbands but this is taking the whole runner-chic thing a little too far
So I've been giving my tester sneakers the "house slippers" treatment and thought I'd give my thoughts so far. Since Common Projects seems to be a good benchmark I'll use them as my major comparable.
Uppers: The hand of the suede is more or less on par with my CP chukkas - luxe feel while robust enough to be worn for a good deal of time. I got the olive suede which has this really nice deep, rich shade that I fear won't really come across well in photographs. Pairs well...
Can confirm, the soles are the same as CP, Balenciaga, Raf Simons, etc. Literally just did a side-by-side with a pair of CP chukkas I have on hand.Going to hold off on any other comments until I've put my test pair through the ringer but I will say that the sneaks are very nice as far as materials and construction goes.
+1 for the technical knit. I got the navy tech knit bomber in today and it's really nice. Oddly enough I kinda like the branded patch which I was 100% keen on removing up until now...(although, the webstore claimed 53% wool/43% polyurethane/4% acrylic and my tag says 57% acrylic 43% nylon... wut)
