Didn't see anything I'd remotely even consider buying. Not at those prices. I stocked up on the 608 fit pants as they were clearing out the old stock.
Pro tip: I wear exceptionally boring clothes at work, can be boring and still wear well-fitted and well-cut clothes. (my wife says no one can make expensivle clothing look cheap better than me!)For example, if you like button down shirts, try brooks brothers slim fit or Gitman Vintage, or even Engineered Garments Workaday or 19th C. shirts. For 5-pocket pants or jeans, APC New Standard cut will make almost any body type look good. Swap out those blobby shoes for...
If true, that is too bad. Their Rockers -- minus the orange stitching -- were/are a great cut, and their denim faded really, really well.
I disagree re Epaulet. How is offering Chelsea boots a knockoff? I haven't drunk the Epaulet Kool-Aid, but they are not a copycat retailer. Everything Mike has offered is just a version of a long-established style. (and, not necessarily cheaper either)
That makes sense -- like a lot of boots it's hard to tell where they're actually made. For instance I believe Wolverine or Red Wing or Chippeway makes boots for Allen Edmonds.Nick's certainly has a great quality reputation, but the wait times have made me wary, after being burned by ToJ. The price is very nice...sorry for derail.
It sure does, definitely has that blobby profile from above. VB definitely has drawn some imitators lately, with Truman, these and a few other models/collabs from established makers like Wesco that have a distinct Viberg Vibe, as it were. As they move away from stitchdown construction I think there's a definite niche to fill.The tonal stitching is a nice touch. Very nice. Undercuts VB on price by a fair amount, though it looks MAYBE a touch less sturdy.
I don't think they make a ton of money, but it has a weird corporate sheen that EG, in general, does not. Vans is owned by VF which owns SF favorites like Rock & Republic and 7 for All Mankind., the sneakerhead hype...I could be wrong but are they US-made, at least?
I feel like the Vans collab is the one thing that EG does purely for profit. Or maybe I just don't get the sneakerhead ethos.
Blah. I ordered that exact jacket from ToJ -- guess seeing your photos is the closest I'll get to seeing it...good luck with sale.
