What is going on with the chocolate suede jodhpurs?

post #3992 of 4102

Mike,

 

I have seen a few rumors circulating about shell shortages at Carmina. Can you provide an update on the saddle shell chukkas? I am curious if those are affected. Thanks!

No offense - like I said elsewhere, these are beautiful in their own, freakish way, but the only vocation I can think of these being appropriate for is pimp.

ass.

The obvious '"vocation" these are " appropriate for" Is stylish coat and tie for more creative professions - obviously beyond your grasp -- or more adventurous street wear. They are also appropriate for the wearer to insert up your narrow- minded ass.

If they are not your taste, fine. You don't have to get them. But the next time you have the desire to crap on someone else's aesthetic and call it pimp, tell yourself to shut the fuck up because you have no business running down someone else's choices - particularly when those choices are more dynamic than yours.

Whoa whoa. Less caffeine dude. I'm entitled to my opinion as much as you are yours. Style is subjective or we'd all be wasting our time at Math Forum, where there are absolutes. I'm sorry, but these are outlandish shoes, and I (as I suspect many others would silently say) would struggle to come up with a single occasion (work or social) where I could pull these off, even if I wanted to. Like I said, the craftsmanship on these is amazing, but to me, some works of art just can't be shoehorned (pardon the pun) into a residence, and I personally feel the same about these.

 

A few other things:

 

1) I was making a joke, and I hope that was obvious, but if anyone should take offense, it's the person who bought and posted these.

2) What is Style Forum for if not to discuss matters of taste? Or should we all just pat each other's backs all the time. Great python shoes! I need to get some of them!

3) How can you tell if the wearer of these shoes has more dynamic taste than me? Because I don't particularly appreciate shoes made of multicolored snake?

4) Your excessive use of expletives puts me off.

To each their own, but I love them and I'll be wearing them to work likely this week or next. Pair it with a subtle plain navy or gray suit, white or blue shirt and solid tie. @wj4 has worn them with some pretty solid outfits.

Hey, if you can rock them, more power to you. I was seriously just joking around. Hope you didn't see this as a personal attack.

No kidding. Maybe that's why I'm focusing on shoes! Come on top 3 pick!

Hey guys,

 

Many apologies for not being more on top of this. We've been working hard to get a handle on just what styles we have in work and finished up.

 

The good news is that a shipment just cleared customs! We should have them in the Manhattan store in the next day or two and will work to let you guys know what is in there. It looks like there's a ton of stuff coming in!

That guy was flipping out over my joke on the same topic a few pages back.  Just ignore. :)

What irks people is your attempt to disguise an absolute statement as a personal opinion, insisting that style is subjective whilst written in the same paragraph is an absolute statement regarding style.

 

"I'm entitled to my OPINION as much as you are yours... Style is subjective ... but these are outlandish shoes... some works of art just can't be shoehorned into a residence... What is Style Forum for if not to discuss matters of TASTE..."

 

I really don't think attributing someone's personal taste to being unfit for absolutely any kind of occasion and being a shoe only for 'pimps' is "discussing" matters of taste, but rather putting his/her taste down as inferior.

 

Oh, and just because I think I can't pull a look off does not mean no one else can.

 

I hope you understand my point so we can all move on.
