@flowcharts – Needs pants with a little more room in the top block/thighs and I'd go with more substantial footwear.

Boots are Wing and Horns X Dayton and Coat is Schneider

I can't believe I missed the Sage de Cret fishtail again.

You do not get rid of a coat that glorious (unless you sell it to me for the low).

MOK DMs are making me nostalgic.

Thinking of copping a pair....just like the old days at university.

I lived in them at university, stopped wearing them for about 15yrs, then re-discovered their joy. Yes the cheap leather will cut your feet whilst you break them in, but once you've broken them in they are so comfy, and the tread is perfect for frozen pavements. I've tried both the Made in England and Vietnamese ones, and whilst the leather is marginally better on the MIE ones the difference isn't that great (neither are what you'd call decent) and both have better insoles that the horrible cardboard ones you used to get in the 80's English ones.

@ManofKent – I picked up a pair of the MIE DMs after seeing yours all the time and was surprised by how absolutely atrocious the leather was. I can only assume it's corrected grain or "genuine leather" or something equally as untoward. But, even still, love them for thinking of my halcyon days as a punk kid.

Yes corrected grain, that'll never really absorb conditioner and scuffs as easy as anything, but they're a design classic smile.gif

My two winter 'uniforms' at university were, 1) DMs, army surplus combats, an Aran sweater over a denim shirt and a thrifted 3/4 length Crombie or 2) DMs, a fisherman's smock over a T-shirt and Levi's.

I've not really moved on - I found myself wearing a smock and Levi's the other day, and whilst these day's the combats would be Orslow and the Aran Sweater Inverallan I could pretty much replicate uniform 1 and feel quite happy wearing it (although I'm not sure about the thrifted Crombie that had probably absorbed a bit too much spilt beer and desperately needed dry-cleaning. The pony-tail probably won't make a comeback either biggrin.gif

The difference between MIE and MIT DMs is about 60 percent in price over at South East Asia side.

Gotta agreed quality wise is not as good as the olden days; leather and sole are much thinner.

It has been a decade and more since I owned any suede footwear.

Have you tried any Solovair? I really dislike my china docs, which, while ive worn them quite a bit, still is in the cutting face. It also seems that the footbed just has the wrong shape...

A classic black with yellow side stitching will be good.

They were worn and beaten with jeans, chinos and hell, I have worn them with shorts before too. LOL!!!

Not too sure they have the lace ups with side zips or not. I have gotten rather lazy to tie laces (especially on boots) these days.
