I can't even find the picture anymore and when I try and google it I can't find anything. All of the paratrooper boots I see are like riding boots, this guys were like a nylon canvas or something so there was shape in the toes but the rest was very unstructured.
Anyway I agree that DIY would be the logical, and easiest, route. But it would be cool to have one done for real. Thanks for all the tips.

 

Almost sounds like you are describing Palladiums. A lot of their current styles are pretty ugly but a plain pair might be a cheap option to use as a DIY prototype? Would be suitably unstructured. I'm sure there are fashion brands (Visvim?) that have done Palladium style sneaker boots in the past too. I can't imagine a traditional leather shoemaker being interested in the project. I wanna find that photograph now, sounds awesome.

Epaulet? Their salt washed oxfords are < $100 a crack, and they have a pre-order promo going on right nowthat includes some at $85: http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/special-order/products/epaulet-shirting-fall-16-ends-for-friends-oxfords-novelties

Wolf vs. Goat oxfords are excellent and generally in the ballpark of $100 if you're a rewards member (which is a one-time cost of $20 or $25 I think), but there are sometimes long lead times. You're probably best off emailing Mauro at wvg@wolfvsgoat.com to find out what's available; I'm not sure if there are pre-orders going on right now or how much is currently in stock.

Some people like Gustin oxfords, and they list the weight of the fabric for each product. You're either looking at a long-ish lead time for pre-orders or whatever's in their stock store. FWIW, I've seen QC issues on a couple of Gustin shirts, but they've been decent about returns.

Want a chunky shawl collard cardigan this winter. Something like my old Uniqlo +J one, Robert gellert is too loose knit. Any other ones I can look at?

Inverallan? Or is that too workwear-ish?

*hall of shame* I just made my first eBay purchase ever today and it was a supreme x undercover t shirt. I don't even do streetwear and I don't have any supreme 😞😓🙃

(it was the anatomy t shirt)

I went one step further and kopped the coaches jacket to flip and pay for the burgundy overcoat I want. Also first time owning Supreme.

I have a few Supreme pieces but that cheap anarchy shit collab isn't for me (or anyone else).

I'm sure some of the graphic tees are ok but the all over "A" boots and tees are a major nono.
