It's sort of apples to oranges here, isn't it? The fulton Maz 3d is a predistressed, prewashed, non-selvedge jean. It's lightweight and really quite comfortable, and top top it all off the cut is pretty damn good for a straight leg. They are mildly bootcut, I believe. On the other hand, APC NS' are raw, selvedge, stretchy jeans. They taper. So... it totally depends on what you're looking for. Both are pretty nice, but I think on these boards the NS' are +1.

Flip flops are good when worn how they're meant to be worn: part of a relaxed, simple, warm-weather outfit. The more casual/tropical your environment, the more appropriate it is to wear them.

Samba's. And to disagree a bit with the guys who say these aren't good for workouts: I played indoor soccer for a few years and always wore samba's. They didnt' seem too bad at all - grippy and fair levels of support. Maybe my arch is a bit lower than most, but I had no problem using them for athletics.
Quote: here are usually four tiers of denim brands: designer, fashionable, mainstream, and mass market. My picks for each category based on price/quality value: for designer (DSquared, D&G, Karl Lagerfeld) you’re looking to spend $450 plus; for fashionable (Diesel, G-Star, Joe's, Parasuco) prices can range from $150 to $400; for mainstream (Abercrombie & Fitch, Zara, H&M) you'll get fashionable jeans at an economic price range, like $59 to $89; for mass market...
It's a subtle boot cut in person. Flattering for most people. But filson is more of what you see on styleforum - slim, slightly tapered cuts. I think ES has changed their cut names for new seasons. Jakimo ~ Hutch and Ace ~ Filson? Last time I bought ES it was called Fulton, so it could be...
Max time: About 3 days. Otherwise shit starts to dissolve into your booze from your flask, and thats not fun. White vinegar does wonders for alcohol related smells.
