i died a lot inside after seeing that "noragi".

They're basically copying everything under the sun and bringing the production inhouse using their own label to create higher profit margins for themselves.  It's a good business move, but only if you have the customer base that will buy into it, which it doesn't appear to be any problem with the amount groupthink they got going in there.  

 

First it was the GATs

Then it was the CPs

Then they started doing EG stuff.

 

All pretty safe stuff, but when they came out with the noragi, i lol'd.  I think they also have an artifact cord piece too, not sure, unsubscribed a while ago

Now I think they're doing goodyear welted boots.  Makes sense tho, margins must be much better than selling redwings or whatever.

The Vis lhamo has buttoned sleeves too. I like mine, even though I realize it's basically the #menswear version of an all-over-anime-print tshirt.

First it was the GATs and I didn't speak up because I didn't wear GATS
Then it was the CPs and I didn't speak up because I don't wear CP's
Then they started doing EG stuff, and nobody was left speak up for EG.

Dudes,

 

It's voting time over in the Viberg proposal thread. With your help, we can totally get the Echo boot made. You're probably not going to see a boot like this from Viberg again any time soon, so this is the one chance. Don't live with regrets. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as uncle and nephew.

 

Vote with your $$ - 20 dollars (refundable if the boot doesn't make it) gets you a vote, and secures you in the annals of history.

There are a bunch of other good options. But none trump the Echo boot, which, in addition to being a looker, can easily make point five past light speed, and will keep your feet comfy on the Kessel run (and can, in a pinch, be used as a forceful mynock removal tool).

 

 

 

(thanks again to @kindofyoung for the mock-up)

Yeah, I feel like if you can get past the fact that it's a watered-down insult to our shared traditional agrarian heritage which were you caught wearing it in public would result in the immediate severing of your topknot / struggle-bun, bringing great shame upon your family and household, it's not necessarily a bad-looking or difficult-to-pull-off piece.

I say fuggit, if someone wants to make MMM GATs and CP Achilles out of nicer materials and sell them at a lower price, I'm not gonna argue.

Pretty much my take on it. The sole on the first run of GATs was teh fuggs, but supposedly they're changing it for the second iteration.

When my CP Achilles inevitably die, I'll probably just try to find a pair of monochrome white Stan Smiths because they're all basically referencing the same thing.

The epaulet noragi is getting a lot more flak than it deserves. I'll grant that the shirt sleeves are sub optimal, but it looks good with the sleeves rolled. Also I'm a fan of the pockets, they're good for shoving your hands in if you wear it open all the time like I do. The pics on Epaulet's site do a really poor job of styling the thing. The fit B!CD posted is much better.

I look fuckin good in my vis lhamo. Like a godamned Japanese indigo artisan. Like all the white folk see me wearin that shit and they're like "whoa, this guy must be my hibachi waiter. 1 swordfish steak with some fried rice please" and menswear dudes be like "I bet this guy has vats of fermenting indigo all up in his home" and white girls see it on my OK Cupid profile and be like "I didn't know I had yellow fever"

BOOM WHAT'S THAT ARE YOU SERIOUS ARE THOSE BUTTONED SLEEVES?

yeah dudes guess what when I'm all ready rockin and rollin di' go, I just fold up and roll up my sleeves easily and I'm ready to get dirty to plant some japanese eggplant seeds.

"But how do you close it? Are those tassles?"

Yeah baby I can tie them if I want but I do somethin' called ESPREZZO and tie a knot in only one tassle and leave them hangin', that technique is called "drape," darlin'. Sometimes the drape gets in the way when I'm makin my pasta and the tassles kinda go into the boiling water, but that's ok because I like my noragi hybrids EL DANTE
