Never heard it that way, from the Toronto area originally...

Dislike the 'seemingly' structured blazer (could just be buff Eason with a jersey) with the waxed boot tucked jeans. I reckon a more casual jacket would have fit the bottom half more.

Then again changing that t-shirt to a solid white shirt and the shoes to black some paul smith derbies would have created a very Italian vibe.

Based on the ones you saw, I'd say yours are the mark I. There's another clear pair of Goliaths in dark blue that wouldn't seem amiss on my face. Ultra liked to manufacture their designs in various countries - I've seen Holland, Britain and the former West Germany, and those are just mine. If they were indeed the Ultra Palm distribution company referenced in my article, this would explain the misconception regarding their output and that of Cazal, perhaps encouraged by the Goliaths being mistaken for Cazal 607s by Run DMC fans

I'm far from an authority on frames but I'm self-educating. It was actually the release of the Rothschilds that prompted me to start connecting the dots

Thierry Lasry's stuff is rather nice--mostly takes on assorted '70s designs and other retro themes in unusual colorways. Apparently they are handmade in France.

I've also seen the Goliaths manufactured by a company called Caviar.

Ya'll aint gonna believe me but they're from Zara, just like $60 or so. I'm not sure if they're waxed or resin, but they're nicer than my SJDBC's were.

You mean without a boot tuck? I don't know why but black jeans w/ tucked white shirt and blazer just... makes me feel dirty, at least need to untuck the white shirt.

If you wear size 30+ you could get some black waxed Diors for 200k won here in Korea. No idea why Dior thought they could sell a size higher than 29 here. Or you could go to the Dior store in Korea and pay 800k for NORMAL Diors, so no idea what the washes/coateds are. How does the denim on those feel compared to Uniqlo? Jarude: the rear rise on 5010s can be brutal on those with an ass; 5507s are tight up front but feel just right in the back. I'd say it's probably one of the best '66 cuts.

There's a relationship there - I've seen some designs described as "Caviar by Ultra." Perhaps a rebranding of sorts took place

A company named Brandy designed a couple of Ultra models such as my Zeus pair and a women's style named Rangoon. The most baroque edition of Goliaths remains the tortoise with beige leather bindings I saw somewhere on the internet

No, the Dior store in Galleria jacked up the prices a bunch. You have to do some internet hunting then making sure they're authentic. It's only bigger sizes I see and older seasons so pretty sure Dior dumped them after no one bought.

Ah, cool. Thanks for the tip.

Yeah, I mean that current outfit looks good and everything fits but just doesn't 'flow' to my eye. I agree an untucked white shirt with some black 'dress' shoes would work. It is a very dior look.

Nice deal, if I was in the area I'd buy them. Denim feels comparable but a bit heavier than UNIQLOs and stretches back to original size. UNIQLO denim's problem is that it's a bit too thin and stretches too much, for all of it. +J doesn't seem to have the problem, but they don't have any +J denim in a color I'd ever wear. Wheat/black/Mao suit blue with no interesting details? WTF?
