omgcookielol, what type of everyday wear do you have, that you feel works with the pure black leathers?

Nothing special but my everyday wear consists of:

Plain black tees and military/safari shirts, black jeans that have received a beating over the years (frayed seams/hems, surface texture, oxidized hardware), worn black kudu leather sneakers and calf lace-ups. Works well for the biker look, but I want to add more military elements soon - stuff like combat and engineer boots. Something like this fit by AR_Six would look great in all-black, imo:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

There is no color contrast in my closet: Everything is black, and if any small pieces of hardware are visible, they're already black or darkened from heavy oxidization. I choose black hardware because it isn't loud, and will not be overshadowed by other details in my outfit. They exist peacefully with other details without demanding disproportionate attention from an observer.

Interesting. I wear a mix of aesthetics. It's pretty standard SF stuff, white or blue ocbds, dark denim, navy/grey pants, and black/white/grey t-shirts, all plain. The only sneakers I own are a pair of recently purchased GaTs, as I mostly wear dress shoes/boots. The only bright pieces I own are accessories like scarves, or a sweater or two (though most are gray and black). The lack of flashy-ness is what's keeping me away from silver/gunmetal.

What was the outcome on oxfords? I read something about Drew losing track of his resource and closed the thread down before having an aneurysm. .

Saw a toj tote today at school, black leather nearby too but couldn't determine what it was. Probably belonged to the dude wearing a Geller dip dye and mmm/hmmm sidezips. Mind blown because I always thought my school was tiny and poorly dressed wat

Edit/
My brown a2 is about to arrive, I know this was asked a few pages back for black bombers but any suggestions for boots besides Clark's dbs/wolverine 1000 miles? Im assuming brown would be best, but black might work too? If distressedish? 150 and under preferably

they were ordered and in production. lady is way slower than we thought and then had a baby + a car accident that affected her sewing hand, a couple other mishaps on her side plus more fabric sourcing on the Japanese selvedge, and now we get them today and I get to look over them. Send tomorrow.

Navy calf bags?

It was mentioned earlier in the thread that womens quilting would hit a bit above the elbow on the new BCDR. Is this the case with the men's BCDR as well? If so, I was wondering if this is a pretty accurate representation of what to expect from a BCDR with channel quilting. satisfied.gif

wow. nice photoshop there. Yes, the jacket will look almost just like that with the channel quilt. Was thinking of not bringing the quilting down so far the sleeve on the men's, but now you have me thinking.

The width/thickness of the channel quilting is very good too
post #26820 of 41448
I agree with Willy. satisfied.gif I was hoping it wouldn't be cut off at the shoulders like the qdr after I saw how good the women's qdr looked.

Assuming that the length of the quilting isn't reduced dramatically before you give the final okay, you can expect an order for a channel quilted bcdr from me sometime in early March (Valentine's Day's digging into my jawnz budget, or I'd cop with swiftness tonight laugh.gif).
