^nice choice, similarly I like the doc martens 3989 as a slightly chunkier alternative to the postmans. but the postmans are really great and super versatile. don't mind the shine (it's not so so glossy but I think it's nice actually) and I also do like how they look beat up. may want to use shoe trees though if the wrinknling bothers you. I don't.

I'm a ~35" chest / XS in Uniqlo tops - last fall's pocket sweater in XS fits really well in the sleeves but tight in the body. Size S is sorta slouchy in S through the body but a little baggy in the sleeves. I wish I could combine the sleeves of XS with the body of S, but I'll keep the latter since that's a much more comfortable fit.

The first two are pics I posted a while back as I received the wrong size and had to sell... The second are a pair that I have in my crosshairs...









those are really nice. are they both the same shoe / gibsons? best place to kop?

Yeah, they're both Gibsons. The first pair have the normal Gibson sole and blind eyelets. The second have a commando sole and nickel (i think) eyelets.

 

It would be really great if they had a pair with commando sole/blind eyelets.

 

As far as where to get Solovairs, unfortunately you have to get them from England. A simple google will show you a few official online shops, most notably britboot.


I really love Solovairs. People have said they are of a higher quality than Martens and some say there is no difference. I feel that they are a step up and the leather on my Hawkins boots is much better than any Martens I've ever owned. If you're interested in their history it is worth a read.

 

Edit: Unfortunately the pics on britboot are less than flattering. The pics on http://www.aircushionboot.com/ do better justice.

 

Here's the monkey boot (I have a pair in oxblood. Pretty sick...)

I have solovair gibsons, too, and I like them a lot although I don't think they're a huge step up from standard docs. Unfortunate that all of these shoes use mediocre leather--I feel like the 1460s I wore in the mid 90s were nicer, but wtf did I know I was 14.

 

Wish I could find some horsehair laces like Ervell used. Still mad at Bows for not selling me his samples!!

 

Mine (via yoox)

They actually were nicer, and they very well may have been made by Solovair.

Tooth,

 

Any idea if Patrik will ever bring the knit polo back? I really love it and want more of them. Many more of them.

Shucks. I really love mine. I'm always looking for a polo with a similar cut.
