ON A MORE IMPORTANT NOTE.

 

Rudals is coming to Korea to get married. I'm taking him out on Sunday (because in Korea, every day is drinking day). If you'd like to buy him a drink, message me with your preferred beverage and I'll let you know my paypal. Any extra cash is pooled into a "Get Rudals to Drink Even More" fund. Rudals has to drink it, no matter how foul. Photo evidence of consumption will be provided and posted in the Noddles Good Natured Advice Thread.

 

This is the best thing this thread has seen in a while. Get schwasty-face @Rudals!

 

Also, dainite on suede shoes and boots is awesome. Waterproof that suede and BAM!

I don't like the idea of lightweight flannel at all. The stuff even when heavy doesn't last all that long. In my mind light weight flannel will distort prematurely. I like fuzzy plain weaves, heavy frescos, and tighter hopsacks.

My hate for dianite soles is well documented in other areas of the forum, but I will repeat: Dianite sucks. I have tried it out and I feel on wet pavement it becomes more slippery. Oak bark soles when worn get a kind of nap of them as opposed to getting slick and smooth like other tanned outsoles. The nap on oak bark soles, IME, is much better on wet ground. Dianite on ice is as useless as anything. Also, to top it off not seeing a leather bottom on a shoe ruins the appearance and charm to me.

I can't use leather soled shoes on inclined escalators, at least not going down. They slide. I'm forced to stand there like a punce (made up word) for a good 45 seconds while middle aged women waddle past and glare at me for being a lazy fucker.

Fuck Dianite, dainite, or whatever. They suck.

They fuck and suck? How much?

You need to avoid that inclined plane, or move. Seriously.

After breaking my leg because of slipping down my metal stairs on a rainy day I put Vibram soles on all my shoes.

If you wear rubber soled dress shoes you will be ruined.

That has more to do with your gait than the shoes. Stop walking crooked, man!
