Like I said, the denim jacket was not my favorite, and I will agree with you that some Clarks DBs would have been a much better choice than the Jordans. She always recommends DBs (Yes I read her blog), so I think she was trying to mix it up and be a little more outlandish. This forum also tends to be overly critical of what I will call "outsiders" or non-Sfers. If WAYWRN is any indication, people here disagree constantly. Break vs no-break, slim vs borderline...
