All I need, really. Boots take up a lot of space, been a lot happier ever since I edited down to just the essentials:

Black boots (Jun Hashimoto S23 backzips)
Brown boots (Guidi backzips)
Beater boots for rain and snow (guidi laceups)
Casual Derbies (Jun Hashimoto carpe knock-offs)
White trainers (CP highs)

Truth be told, I wouldn't mind a pair of bone white zip boots, however

man, i cant think of an essential shoe list for myself that has less than a dozen shoes, and that is just to cover MC ish.

Black,Brown, white lace up boots for me. Black, grey and white sneakers but I mainly use those as beaters, going out and partying or what not. But I do really need some sidezips in darker grey suede/reverse leather.

top four has to include:
(1) one pair dress shoes - ae delray in black
(2) one pair boots - brown timberland earthkeepers
(3) one pair casual shoes/sneakers - white cp mids
(4) and one pair true sneakers - nike fk lunars

next two are a toss up. I'll add one more dress shoe (ferragamo brown plain toe lace up) and last is a toss up between another pair of sneakers (nike bo jackson trainers atm) and another pair of boots (officine creative grey side zips)

Those shoes are too clean

I'm confused. Shoes don't get very dirty taking fit pics. Are you actually supposed to wear them too?

"Cloak skinny jeans" featured in an article about the lack of a disposable fashion trend this year.

Odd juxtaposition sitting there with colored Gap denim and Ugg boots, wonder what editor worse those into the office that day

As someone who bought them for our store before the Kanye photos (which made the brand explode), I can say that it comes down to 3 things : 1) you gotta touch the material to understand, it's a really great rubbery material, nothing like typical rainwear; 2) the cut and style is minimalist and slim, 3) they're not expensive (at least the machine-made Stockholms aren't; the handmade Arholma are pricey).

I handled one, back when they only had the Arholma in black and where pretty much unknown and I must say the quality is great, but a $1000 for a raincoat, seems ridiculous to me, as you will look like a fool wearing when it's not rainy.

It's a raincoat, which will look out of place when it's not raining, personally I would get something like a Mackintosh or Nanamica Soutien over it.

Its based on a classic raincoat, which is basically the same as the Stutterheim, they are just cheaper quality/price, also most people fold them and shove them into a bag, which to my experience zippers don't like.

if i were to go bare minimum i think i could cut it down to:

oak brown dress brouges
something in polo suede
black punched cap toes
brown boots
nice sneaks


but that would be really sad and limiting.

The Stockholm is 1/3 of the price because it's machine-made with welded seams instead of handmade with taped seams.  Also no lining on the Stockholm which I actually prefer for that coat.   We chose not to carry the Arholma because of the price point but honestly, I don't find the price that ridiculous for a garment with so much labour into it - and not in a low-cost labour country.

 

I love Mackintosh and we sell them but the aesthetics are so completely different from the Stutterheim that they're hard to compare side by side... The bonded cotton on Macks also has a very different feel and drape from Stutterheims - just a different animal.   And again, a Stockholm is 1/3 or 1/4 of the price of a Mackintosh.       Nanamica we don't sell but take a look at the tag and where the garments are made - there's bound to be a different in cost...

 

I don't necessarily agree with the statement about wearing it only when it's raining but that's an opinion, I guess.   I think it looks good simply as outerwear - rain or not.

 

At the end of the day, those are not the best thing since sliced roasted pork, but they're a cool garment with a nice feel to it, that's functional and costs about 300 bucks or so...

My Humble travel with me collection. I have an odd assortment, most of these have sentimental value especially my Ralph Lauren Sandals which are the only non-Margiela thing I have in my closet. Other than these I keep various moccasins, brogues, some other sidezips, and a pair of RAF Vandals I keep for the hell of it in storage. I have a thing for keeping my collections minimal...I hate seeing it all at once, makes me feel like I have way too much shit that I should be using



To tell you the truth id be happy with just my Painted Linen Moccs and Replica Military Boots for everyday wear and my knit frees for the gym. I never want to take myself too seriously when in cones to my wears, always tropical and laid back
