What's the closest thing to a Common Projects dress shoe / officer's derby (fw11 - ss12) ?
Or who knows where I can get either of these in a 12 / 45?



I don't like the fw12 version, for the record --

Dintex hunting vest, quilted shirt, and a couple of sweaters - still not cheap, but, I dunno, merry christmas to me?
I don't own anything from them. I'm curious though, why'd you swear them off?

WH is one of those brands like ndg, ervell etc that while are good in their own right (and way better than anything found in the non-internet world ie malls) they just don't have that "goddam" effect. Even sns which I wear all the time isn't that great so you really have to get into high caliber shit that even when you look back will have you saying fuck this was a good cop and makes everyone jealous of your next next level shit. Not to say none of that stuff isn't worth copping, I have quite a bit myself like margaret howell, cdw, apc, and I have it because it serves a particular purpose. I don't even know wtf I'm trying to say but I've sold off any ndg, wh shit I had long ago.

I purchased the creeper version recently. Couldn't be happier. redface.gif

Crap, I'm out of thumbs up. :/

Thanks for the the explanation, jet.

The problem with that fashism site is that there is absolutely 0 criticism. Seems like most girls dont want to be seen as "mean" on the internet. lol

I feel like some of the more boring pieces that I've acquired (ervell, aoc, acne, w+h, CP, uniqlo etc) are more useful now that I have some more avant garde pieces to contrast against.  Is that what you're getting at?

No, they will bring down an outfit of baller ass pieces if you're intent on become a thumb collector.

In other news I just realized I am the anti-toasty, I hardly own any black shoes. As a result I will sell off some of my current nib sneaks to acquire some. I mentioned most likely the mii lanvin lows (sup kid nickels) and probably my blue velvet margiela sneaks (the same ones sq got after me). Do they make black cp creepers?
post #68966 of 99780
Why would you do that? Just acquire more shoes
post #68967 of 99780
Nah I have too many and I fear I won't wear some of these so better to let them go, not let my closet get more out of control, and acquire things I will use right away. Won't be selling any pullovers or cardigans however.

Need black shoes, have bison guidis coming in a few months, looking for black suede side zips, and maybe some sutor chelseas (that i fucking missed out on ebay).

You really can't believe this? You're a smart guy, Hendrix, you know better. Half the people that post in that subforum probably espouse such views. The other half believe those views, but know that the first half will espouse them on their behalf so they remain silent so that they can project an image of being reasonable.

Agree with white sneaks, but if you don't like 'em you don't like 'em.

I would think that cockblocking somebody to inquire about their shoes would be the ultimate SF move.

Curious to know this as well.

I guess I would say the same thing about the w+h pieces that I own. From a design standpoint, none of them are spectacular. They are, however, well made and work as nice basics.

Also SS persian stole + 30mph winds = looking like a badass post apocalyptic cyberpunk gaucho

post #68970 of 99780

Has anyone looked at the new collections on LVR? I´m browsing my favorites ATM and gotta say it´s rather lackluster and not very appealing so far. One look at Ann D. and you´ll see.
