Welcome to the forum @thedavidstarr.  I don't see anything wrong with it, but the rest of the outfit has to work.....basically what I'm saying is don't wear dad jeans and Skechers.  I love this leather bomber http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/brown-pebblegrain-leather-bomber-jacket.html

Thanks for writing. I confess I don't know what Skechers are:)

new balance kinda left that category about 5-10 years ago.

hey david if that one is too expensive heres one i found at nordstrom that is cheap and i thought looks nice, and its faux leather too so you don't have to kill a cow to wear it xD

otherwise if you want something a bit more expensive i thought this was nice too and it has the word ezekial in the brand which i thought u would like since ur name is the david star

i just can't imagine paying that much for clothes knowing that there are still homeless people in america right now.

Yes, what I posted could be considered expensive, but good leather isn't cheap. I really like the Valstar, but obvisouly if it's too much or if he could live without real leather, than there are better options.

Hello denim fans!

 

I know so very little and would really appreciate your help.

 

1- Does raw denim colour EVER stop leaking? I wear mainly white shirts, tucked in aswell and was wondering if they would leak on my shirt and they are quite expensive, I don`t know if a machine wash could remove these stains? It seems like a bad risk for me despite appreciating the fades and durability.

 

2- Does regular denim ever bleed? (levis etc)

 

3-Does raw denim like naked and famous (sanforized) ever shrink or stretch on the waist? Since I am a newbie I would only plan on buying sanforized for now, if it seems right. I own one pair now I might update with pics.

 

4-Does sanforized raw denim stretch? Does it shrink without wash after wash?

 

5-What about waist only? Turns out my N&F is a little too tight so that the button looks side ways which isn`t the best look but at least I wear 'em I guess. If the waist were to stretch I would be happy

 

6-I have a big butt and since the jeans are tight it puts emphasis on my butt and balls. Looks like a bubble area lol. Any tips, I think stretching would make it better. It has for my Levis

Here`s my wearing it. I just bought 'em. I`m also a noob at dressing overall but here`s my first shot: What do you think? Be honest, help me! Can polos even be tucked jeansjeansjeans?

I got a Barbour jacket from someone who said they reproofed the jacket with a mix of parrafin and beeswax.  Now the jacket seems extremely stiff compared to other Barbour jackets.  What is the best way to remove the stiffness: by removing the wax, applying the Barbour thornproofing over the existing wax or just breaking it in?

Welcome to the forum, @Pluffmud.  Try posting in our Barbour thread here http://www.styleforum.net/t/514536/new-member-inquiries-quick-questions-streetwear-denim-wk-of-dec-21-2015.  I'm sure you'll get plenty of feedback.  Cheers.
