I seriously have no idea. Well, more like I have a lot of ideas. I bought white Ann backlaces today, which are not black, but will be worn with black things. I also want a pair of brown s23m-type boots if I can ever find a pair in my size that I can afford. Black guidi 995's seem like a good proposition, but I've had sizing problems with guidi so far. I meant to buy black ann boots at one point, but like I said, ended up with white ones. So, really, I have no idea what I'm doing, other than aiming for a starring role in a space western.
If I found plokhov's bomber from last season in a 52 (is it last season? the ma-1?) I would probably buy that, too.
Which Ann backlaces? I have an image in my head but it's the one with the wedge soles, is it that one?
For black boots, keep an eye out for sales. There should be some getting marked down here and there and you might just find your size.
And I got the grey AP bomber for a really good price late last year, I believe it was sitting at 70% off at Barneys for a long while.

Hey diglet when that belt arrives, would you mind sharing your thoughts? I ask because previously there were some complaints about its stiffness or something of the sort. Though that may have been due to the wearers' strengths; I do drink 2% milk for a reason.
