that's my understanding. i haven't noticed any difference in terms of quality. fit varies by season for both lines (in general, the earlier garments were looser/boxier).

unless synthese is jumping out of a giant cruller, i don't see the point.

Reasons include good loot and free food and drinks. So, essentially, the things for which I live. I will try to get regular drillers.

RRL Denim&Supply, at least from what I've owned, makes some awesome jeans

I'm looking for a dress(ier) boot that can handle a decent weather beating (snow, slush, rain). I'm picturing a Commando/Vibram sole, storm welt, scotch grain (or some type of tougher leather) in a mid-brown wingtip under $500. Haven't had any luck. Any suggestions?

Crockett & Jones has a bunch of models that would fit this. Carmina might as well, and they still do single MTOs (though, I don't know if that would be over $500).

Meermin once let me design a boot and I came up with these:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



They're no longer doing single MTOs, but they have group MTOs. You could see if they'll organize something like what you described. The ones above are made from Japanese shell cordovan, which I really like. IIRC, I think their shell cordovan model was originally $400-ish? Calf would be a bit less -- like around $250, I think.

Thought C&J boots would be more expensive, looks like they do have some that fit what I'm looking for. Like yours a lot by the way, pretty much what I want. Thanks.

I like this topic, what have you found so far @scrolls

I want a boot that does not have speed hooks, which I think makes the overall aesthetic less elegant. I want a clean, fall-winter "city" boot similar to your request. Carmina has a few but they all have speed hooks that I also find cumbersome. I like slipping into my shoes by loosening the laces and using a shoe horn.

I'm holding my breath for more Carmina offers to come.

My two favorites so far are:

 

AE Long Branch though they discontinued the color I like the most (Brown Waxy). The AE pictures (as usual) are pretty bad--Google Images has better ones. And they come with two pairs of laces if you dislike the red ones.

 

C&J Islay thanks to dieworkwear. I like these more but doing some research has really made me prefer a commando sole over Dainite which is what these have.

You could contact Allison at AE to see if you can still get in on the brown shell Bayfield. They're brogue captors but fit your other criteria well. More details in the AE MTO thread.

I have a pair of Carmina captoes for winter wear and love 'em. They're on Dainite, though.

So since +J didn't bring back the shawl collard cardigan anyone got recommendations for something similar? I really liked the brown color and also liked that the shawl wasn't super large and I could wear it popped up and it stayed up. Also I'm not paying $600 for a knit.

potentially enormous intrinsic value if you really like tigers. congratulations on your life-altering thrift store find.
post #100829 of 109053
Thanks. It's pretty awesome.
post #100830 of 109053
it really depends on the tpsi (tigers per square inch) ratio

this versace shirt is flooded with tigers and is highly sought after:


whereas this ebay 3-ti (three tiger) find isn't nearly as luxe:


In conclusion, I recommend buying 1980s topps baseball cards as an investment rather than 1980s cdg shirts
