In my experience the Red Wings are pretty shitty on the comfort/leather quality front. Mine started creasing really unattractively after 1 wear.

So I read that your line started as a graphic T. What were the graphics like?
It was marble statue heads, just details of them. They were really faded and printed on white. It was like a ghosted image of a marble head shot from a beautiful angle. There was a series of three of them. And I think there were some that were an image of a nebulae, something from the Hubble telescope. They were printed on washed out T-shirts. This was when Opening Ceremony first opened, and I think it was one of the first things they sold there. I was still working at V then. I don’t even know what the label said. I don’t know if it was my name or something else. But it was more like a project. It was casual. I don’t know if I have any, but I remember them being very beautiful.

Are there any photos of these floating around? they sound great.

he should just get rid of the "born to swedish parents." why do people place so much importance on the fact that patrik ervell had swedish parents? i don't know that much about him, but i feel like half the things i read have to include this fact.

buy some elastic from jo ann's, and stitch it insdie the tongue to the side of the shoe? i dunno why youd want this though, looks awful even with the MMM

I'm completely ignorant when it comes to clothing repair/alteration, so I appreciate the suggestion. (I wouldn't have known what Jo Ann is otherwise.)

As far as the why, well, I'm sure you can guess that I don't feel the same way as you regarding how army trainers look without laces... which is why I ask. In any case, thanks for the rec; I'll see what's available, and then I'll just mess around til I get it right I suppose.

you can buy elastic in strips of varying width. it's really cheap. as far as actually sewing it in.. I dunno, you'd probably have to do it by hand with a thicker thread?

It's funny that there's a music school on the east coast called "Berklee"... confused the shit out of me when I first heard about it.

Hmmm... I wonder if this would work on a pair of Raf pants I never wear because they're just a touch too loose, but not enough that I want to bring to a tailor, and have no belt loops.

Yeah, I was wondering how exactly that would work. I'll probably get one of my handier friends to guide me through that.

Trickers are by far the best, actually have a pair of dark espresso brogues I'm about to list that may fit you

Our Legacy is made by Sanders, which is the company that makes Mark McNairy etc. Like some materials they use but it's sanders and may not be using full grains

Red Wings are sleek shape wise, not sure about build / leather.
