and found a jacket like hoozahs ( not rlly - less cool and probably feels like shit in comparison) while passing by a john varvatos sample sale somewhere. got a pic for lulz later
vanishing elephant t with yarn knitted into the seam of the shirt - also has chest pocket
LVC 505 ( these get more and more awesome but the honeycombs are a bit off because the pair that they're based off of was apparently was a tall skinny blkgjab )
They are super comfortable and will last a while if you sized your normal size. For some reason my left foot is bigger than my right and the left shoe (which was tight at first) ripped a bit in the sole (sole's glued not stitched) . Leather on the shoes suck too but the profile, which I care about most regarding shoes these days (amidoingitwrong?), is really nice and slim. They're pretty nice beaters though and I love not having to care to about taking care of the shoes
Also just find one pair of denims that you love and wear the shit out of it when you're feeling lazy
It is nice because it is pretty light footwear, shoe can be resoled both upper and lower (replace rubber insole?), and overall shape is pleasing.
FWIW people were right about sizing TTS.
Like you I just picked them up to beat around in.
Some quick photos:
I also swapped out the default laces. They are horrible and thick for a shoe like this
I'm going to just work bottom up. Happy with shoes overall, next are pants & denim then onto knits and outerwear. I'm doing it wrong I think
FYI, those AnnD boots are a pain to get my foot in. I just don't even bother with the lacing of the shaft anymore. I also realized last night that the entire boot inside is lined in a smooth leather, which is nice. So, it is not such suede on suede.
^My last pair will be some brown suede Jodhpurs .. already thought about it and I'm pretty set on it.
I think Lobb makes a few pairs I think
This last pair will require some more fact finding
bows1 had a nice pair on in a WAYWT
but in suede
trickers makes a nice pair of brown jodhpurs, don't know if they're suede. Was gonna buy them a few years ago, not too badly priced, definitely not Lobb pricing.
