yes, 875s work well as winter wear. Good traction on snow and slush ( lug sole might be better though, but definitly no problems), and the sole lasts reasonably long. I dont have much sole wear on any of my crepe sole RWs, but they seem to wear somewhat faster than rubber lug soles.

I own the first pair in that cinnamon color, and they are phenomenal shoes...however I've never tried the other pair...

Though I'm not sure why you would want either pair for winter unless you live in Florida...?

Thanks for the advice. My state shares a border with Florida, so maybe that counts. My main concern is that the top pair's "boat shoe" aesthetic might be too much, even though I personally think the brown sole (as opposed to the typical white one) makes it more versatile. Thoughts?

Mmm, the "boat shoes" are quite open and let in a good amount of air, and they certainly do have more of nautical vibe. They are simply incredibly easy to just slip on and they look good with nearly everything...though I'm sure the same could probably be said of the other pair. I think the second pair is probably more versatile if you're going to try and wear these shoes year-round.

go with the second pair. they're more bad ass-er. really though, you can't go wrong with quoddy.

I have a problem I can't figure out. I have a jacket that measures 19" pit to pit. My chest measures 34", so it should fit fairly easy, like any other jacket, but it's extremely difficult to zip up, and once it's zipped up it fits so ridiculously tight that it limits my movement, even with just a t-shirt underneath. I was thinking that perhaps the shoulders are too small, but it also fits very tight in the waist. I intend on selling it, but I want to know if anyone has any idea as to what is causing this strange phenomenon.

Two words: High Armholes. It's probably also tapered. Have you measured the waist, too?

Just did a waist measure, it's 16 1/2. It could be the waist, even though my waist is somewhere around 29, it probably adds up with my jeans and everything.

robbie- Perhaps a red cardigan? Would give you something over your dress shirt and tie that is a bit more polished than a hoodie.

Hoodies are great for more casual times, but hard to fathom with an actual dress shirt and a tie--except maybe for the distance of the from the car to the store. Red cardigan, or red pullover would be much better.

I'm sold on a new pair of Regular Ralf Dry Nudies. A buddy of mine was wearing them today and they looked awesome.

What's the sizing like on these? I'm a 32 true waist. Go 2 sizes down from true waist size?

And where's the cheapest place to find them nowadays? I thought I'd go with Revolve since they're having such a great sale, but they're all out of smaller sizes.

Any help?

1) The "size down 2" rule is for APC NS. You'll want your true size (32) or size down one (31) if you're going to account for stretching. I did so for my SSDS and was better off for it.

2) Farinelli's. 20% off right now or wait until the black friday sale.

Do Creative Recreations run true to size? How do they fit compared to Adidas?

As polished and credible as possible? Nope, not possible in a parka. Almost by definition you would look more polished in a pea coat (and even more polished in an actual overcoat).

However, depending on what level of polish and credibility you need, it is possible that a parka might provide enough. Any more details?

Quick Question. How do I size (up/down) the following Jeans?

KMW 1950 Raw
RB11

And which do you guys recommend more?

The denim on both are pretty good, and tough as hell to break in. The cuts are different though. KMW1950 has more room in the top block and a slight taper at the hem (think retro-ish, but not quite as anti-fit); RB11 is more of a slim/regular straight cut.

I like how the RB11 fit me more, so I'd recommend it. YMMV.
