I don't understand why everybody bags on MMM leather quality. Mine have held up pretty well (though they're not the original white/gray) and they're far and way the most comfortable sneakers I own (CP, Buttero, Raf, etc.).
post #89132 of 109053
Not kidding

I mean my green pair is straight up terrible, maybe it's the batch but it's crap. My brother has maybe 5 pairs GATs and all don't look very good used neither. His CPs look much nicer though recent CPs fw12 / ss13 felt really bad too. FW13 CP was a little better. Just at $450 retail price point / $250 sale price point I would expect a little better from MMM. The leather will hold up just fine just would prefer something a little nicer if I'm spending so much. Maybe just prejudiced since I pay the same for cheap leather glued together vs nice leather machine welted

Comfort wise yeah GATs are definitely most comfortable for me as well though I rarely wear sneakers. MMM is still my top choice for sneakers, just don't feel leather quality is there. Still gotta get galaxy print too.

Definitely agree with you re comfort. I love my CPs, but Margiela trainers are faaaar more comfortable. I've no idea if the leather holds up just as well, but it sure doesn't feel cheap enough that I'd be concerned about them falling apart or anything.

the JCP gats are comfy, but the difference in leather quality is huge. they look really good though. i've already gotten a good amount of wear from them.

refer to my original post on em.

dont mind the insoles i just threw them in there. i'm a size 40 in MMM and the smallest size they make in the JCPS is US 8. they're pretty big on me.

jcps look like some simpsons caricature shit that someone decided to make in real life

If you really don't want to spring for full price, you should just get surplus German ones.

I might have to focus on the CM side of things for a while. iGentdom here we come.

sup

what's next on your list? gonna cop a couple more shirts then work on my shoe game
post #89138 of 109053
I don't really need super baller suits as it stands, but it irks me how I get that little ridge behind the back of the collar on just about every RTW brand I've tried on - plus I have to buy separates for drop, which limits my options. So far I just have a couple Epaulet suits for work and a Boglioli silk blend one for fun. I'll probably look to add something a step up or so (or hopefully find a brand that fits me a little better). Then I want to upgrade a couple of my shoes - I have the "essentials" already more or less, but some of them are of lesser quality. That should be plenty. Oh, and add a couple more nice shirts (although Kamakura would probably be enough) and ties. My tie game is pretty feeble.

I also realized in preparation for NYE that I seem to have outgrown my tux jacket... or something happened when I had it dry cleaned, although it was borderline tight to begin with.

Don't upgrade shoes if you don't have to, easy way to sink $25k into random stuff you don't need

Cyc you kop any watches recently, I'm on / off on watches can't decide if I really want one or not
post #89140 of 109053
Not since the Datejust earlier this year (and sold my SM300). I'm pretty decided on what my next watch(es) will be though whenever I can justify it/them: JLC MUT moon phase for dress, Rolex sub (from my birth year if possible).

Try them on in person if you can. What are you looking at? Stitches and other people from the watch thread have tons of knowledge.

Not too sure at the moment, posted in both watch threads and got a ton of recs. I like clean german design with something like Nomos but don't wear suits much if ever so not really practical. Then something like a sub is nice but doesn't really speak to me. Still going through now but need to stop in stores to try everything out. Just don't want it to be another expensive habit. Also don't want to buy anything I don't really want and then have to sell later. Once I cut shoes down to only MTOs and what I really want I can free up funds for a watch
post #89142 of 109053
If I could bump my budget up without feeling terribly irresponsible, AP Royal Oak jumbo maybe? That watch is a pretty iconic design and does double duty well.

Glashutte Original Senator hand date makes me happy too and is within my comfort zone money wise.

When has this about what you need?  You could get everything you "need" for about $2K, at your local Macy's, if you are a baller, and a few hundred if you don't have the funds, and need to go to your local JCP.

Hey Fok, I was wondering if you could give a sneak peak of what might be coming in the next year with Styleforum Market and/or MTO's etc.
