Would you recommend using Kiwi mink oil or Obenauf's LP, do you think that would darken or cover that scratch?


This is 100% common and will jut go away w/ use. Or rub it a little with your fingers. Don't use any product. Trust me.

This. I went to elaborate lengths in terms of communication on a claim filed against me (seller) for an expensive item I shipped to Russia. PP sided w/ the Buyer, who literally did nothing save for open the claim. I was furious. As I was out my item, and the money. In the end, the item showed up one day at my house, weeks later, returned by the Russian post office as undeliverable--triple checking revealed I'd sent it to the exact adress listed in both eBay and PP. Go figure

Odd, lame, but in line w/ almost every PP story I hear

i currently have the following 4 pairs of denim jeans in different shades of blue, but wanted to know if gray jeans are suitable with casual shirts e.g OCBD, flannel, checked , vertical stripes ?

 

are these dark gray jeans a versatile color?

for a 27 y/o man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

i have dark brown boats shoes and dark ish brown chukka boots, so i want jeans that go well with them

 

I just find it difficult to picture my footwear with darker color bottoms, llke gray jeans

or would they go well together, as well as the shirts?

 

heres my chukka boots & boat shoes:

so can someone share the color denim jeans a 27 y/o should own/wear?

ideally post pics of the jeans/color please as ones gray could be someone else's black or even dark blue

thanks

It's not as much about color as it is about fading and details.  The True Religions you posted have obnoxious back pockets and an ugly, unnatural fade.  You'll want something with subtle or no details; Levi's are fine, but since you seem to have the money for stuff like True Religion, look into a brand like APC or 3Sixteen, who make denim with very minimal details.  The result is a cleaner, better looking, more "grown up" looking jean.  Alternatively, check out the "What Are You Wearing Today" thread on here.  A lot of guys post the brands that they're wearing, so if you see something you like, you can look into it more that way as well.

 

Washes can be done well, but it would be better for you to go with something minimally processed (no fades).  Find a brand with details you like, then look into their washes to see if they offer a "raw/rigid/rinse" colorway, which is just dark blue without fading.  A decent pair of this kind of denim goes with most things.  People on this board like gray/white/black too, but you should probably start with a dark blue pair first.

 

Since it seems like you're just starting out with this stuff, I'd recommend you take some time and read a site like putthison.com.  Check out the articles in the links on the right side of the page.  They do a web series and they had an episode on denim in their first season; I'd definitely look into that just to get some good basic knowledge on this type of stuff.

MFA has tons of guides too, consider trying there.

Everyone knows there's no such thing as women/girls on the internet. So, no.

 

Only one I know that I've seen women post on too is superfuture, but they're still a rare breed over there. Google might help you here. 

 

Odds of someone on a forum geared towards men knowing about a forum for women seems unlikely, but you never know...

I think purseforum might have that sort of stuff, but i dont remember.

I also want to say thefashionspot (or somewhere with a similar name) has many active female members.
post #11563 of 16075

From most to least active:

TFS (http://forums.thefashionspot.com/f58/)

PurseForm (http://forum.purseblog.com/the-wardrobe/)

reddit's ffa (http://reddit.com/r/femalefashionadvice)

sufu to a limited extent

Out of those options, I would suggest purseforum. Extremely helpful and nice user base. Sufu is cool too (I'm biased) but as previously stated very limited in female posters.
