Indeed, but then they would be way beyond the scope of the affordable swag thread wink.gif

wait a minute, i thought it was just the colour and not actual cordovan, why would it raise the price to such astronomical levels ? it's not like there's an alden x doc collab coming out. is there ??? patch[1].gif

Well I checked and indeed Doc Martens seems to be able to source genuine Cordovan shell. Expect 600+$ though

Just picked up a Grey warp/Black weft rigid levis trucker jacket today for $40 with a macy's giftcard I had laying around.  Honesty, I'm impressed with the fit and finish.  Nice and slim, and decent construction/materials.  Excellent purchase.

I certainly don't fall into that category.  I'm 6'2" at about 14.5% body fat with an athletic build. I find that target's athletic fit T's are damned decent.  I get a large, and while they could stand to be a *little* more fitted around the waist, I don't have any complaints for the price.  I run mine through one wash/dry cycle, and then wash them on gentle and hang dry from that point out.  The initial wash/dry seems to shrink 'em to a very nice fit, and they seem to hold up very well.   ESPECIALLY next to a lot of other t's I've tried.

 

Maybe there's a bit of variation in their manufacturing?  Though the one's I've gotten have always been pretty consistent.  Then again, mine are all less than about 3-5 months old.

Levi's are pretty good value..especially in the US.

I got a pair of zara jeans for something like 35 bucks. they have a pretty good fit. Also copped a zara safari jacket for $85. It´s a bit long on the sleeves, but looks great overall.

Nice bike. Do you ride only to commute or even on road/track?
post #373 of 448
lawlz be had. That is a co-worker and he commutes.

I only ride for fun to save some gas.

I'd like to see this thread revived. Maybe things like links to ebay sellers who often have great deals, or like this, inexpensive plain canvas backpacks for $20, just picked up one in blue. http://www.ebay.com/itm/170703792815?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 I'll let you guys know how I end up liking it.
