Boots should generally be a bit more spacious than other type of shoes. But if your foot is swimming in them then you should just cut your losses sooner than later. If you got them on Zappos then get a smaller pair and see how they feel

Picked up my first pair boots - Frye Arkansas and love them - been breaking them by wearing them around the house. Sized down 1/2 which might not quite be enough.

Unlaced (so not exactly accurate), if I jam my foot forward as far forward as possible there's around 1/2" of space. In addition, when I first started breaking the boots in they were quite snug around the but now I'm concerned that there's a decent amount of movement. I am wearing the socks I would use.

 

I vote yes.

I could only find this Momotaro Gold label here made by hand which costs over 2K (source). It this the most expensive pair of denim jeas of today?

Well two years ago I had bad grades. Now I am very much better and up to my intellectual potential. However my cousins boss me around and say I should like my parents. My parents won't let me until atleast Christmas. I am almost 17. Do you recommend working at a clothing store to get discounts? Maybe jcrew or Ralph Lauren?

I am needing a coat for this Winter.  I dress very casually dark wash jeans, v neck tees or the occasional polo shirt, and tennis shoes or beeswax leather boots.  I am not "stylish" by any means.  Someone recommend I get a pea coat to go with this, what do you all think and which pea coats fit well? I have been looking at some online but on most that I have seen the fit looks terrible.

What does one wear with brown (chocolate-brown) sneakers?  Suede+leather if it matters.

I would like to preface this question by noting that my prior experiences with 3sixteen and Self Edge were nothing short of fantastic — my ST-100x jeans are a spectacular product.


Yesterday, I received my new pair of raw denim — 3sixteen's SL-100x — which I ordered for the looser fit than the skinnier pair I was wearing. I ordered the jeans in the same waist size I wore my ST's, which I anticipated being tight at first, and then close to perfect. I tried them on, and they fit great; however, within several minutes, and only just walking around my house, the top button popped and broke into two.

 

Now, I have trouble believing that the rivet could have been intact, when you realize how 'heavy-duty' these jeans are constructed. 

 

My question is, has anyone experienced or heard of any similar problems? I have contacted both 3sixteen and Self Edge for advice, but otherwise, do not know how to proceed.

Thanks,

 

Nick

I'm sure they'll take care of you, I had a weird issue with jeans being uneven but turns out it was just my body I guess.  Either way 3sixteen was super helpful throughout the process so you should be good.

I have two pairs of 3Sixteen jeans both in SL fit and have not had an issue with either of them. I'm sure they will fix you right up.

I just started working at an office that's business casual. At the moment, I only have two pairs of gray wool trousers. They're appropriate for the office, but I would like to get more. What would be some kinds of fabrics that aren't chino?

I think a peacoat would be fine for your wardrobe. People tend to over think peacoats. Although it is a bit more formal, it can easily be worn with jeans. Just make sure it fits correctly. My peacoat is from Martin & Osa (they have since gone out of business) but getting it in a slim fit was the best decision I've made. If you thrift a coat, just take it to a tailor and get it altered. A "boxy" peacoat is awkward looking.  I've never gotten a winter coat tailored however so I'm not totally sure how much this would cost.  Your best bet would be to find one that fits and if you are of athletic/skinny build get it in slim fit.

I like Ralph Lauren Rugby OCBDs. With the right sales I found some to be between $30-$45 online.  I also have tried Banana Republic and they fit pretty well.  Their clearance rack in store sometimes has them for as low as $20.

Has anyone used Sharpservice recently? I know they were hacked about a week ago... but since then communication with Hide-san has been very spotty, and I haven't gotten my deposit back for two auctions I didn't win (about $150 locked up)... I'm trying to be patient, but it's a bit odd for someone so communicative to suddenly shut off. Anyone know what's up?

I think you should look more for the colors instead of looking at the material. Most pants are going to be wool or cotton. Wool is more dressy and cotton is more casual. They may even blend the wool or cotton with other materials.

Rugby is going out of business and they are getting rid of a lot of stuff with frequent sales. You might want to check them out if you want to pick up some more for cheap before they're gone forever.
