How many pairs of jeans do you guys think is ideal? I know some of you have like 15 pairs but I mean that would actually get plenty of wear. I have two pairs (plus a cheap h&m pair), trying to decide if I should pick up a third or spend the $ elsewhere. I don't mean blue jeans, any color/treatment.
Depends on what you would use. I've got a bunch these days, but they're all different colors/treatments/etc so there isn't much overlap and they all get used in different sorts of outfits. It's not like I've got half of dozen nearly identical pairs of raw denim sitting around
Mine - black, dark grey, light grey, off white, olive, one washed pair, and some old raw denim. Plus some ervell "jeans," but they aren't really denim so I'm not counting those..... Some get more wear than others, but all of them get at least a decent amount of wear. These days my raw jeans (2 pairs of KMW rockers- one hemmed, one unhemmed, and a pair of apc PS) get the least wear- I've only worn them a handful of times all winter (though to be fair, the PS aren't getting worn b/c I need to repair them... and I keep putting it off).
There are, I believe, quite a few photos on SF of my own dusty rose boots. I assume these are the same color. They are beautiful in person, but they are definitely rose- colored. The tall version could be quite feminine. But yes, they will fit the same as a 41 in MMM boots. Which is to say, the same as CP sneakers, or one size larger than their MMM sneaker equivalent.
Here is a reasonably accurate photo:
They are lightly waxed and have a great texture.
i might snatch a pair of comey's, im just worried that the top part is too big to tuck in or if they'll look too bulky? can we get a shot of the shoe itself and then a fit?
Is there any way to (permanently) shrink up a pair of dry-clean-only cotton pants a bit without messing up the finish? I sized up when I bought my Balenciaga painted cords (was only size available), and they fit ok everywhere but the waist for awhile, but by now they've stretched out a bit more than I'd ideally want in the top block. Pretty sure if I put them in the wash all the paint would come off, but maybe dipping them in hot water or something?
errr, get them tailored. If you just need to shrink them up a little you get them into thye dryer (already dry) for like 15 mins, can't say what it will do to the pants...
