I'm not really feeling the moc toes, though. I'm going to Chicago for grad school and was thinking more of a chukka/desert boot style. I'm basically in love with http://oakstreetbootmakers.com/footwear/natural-trench-boot (but would get vibram soles for weather) 

Any suggestions for stores to buy? I'm rather new to this.

 

 

I'd suggest these - I'm sure there's a stackable code somewhere that'll bring them way down. Cheap and 2nds just means there are superficial blemishes you'd get from regular wear anyway.

Oh shit nice deal..... anyone have a coupon code to stack I will buy these right now!

I got those 1Ks 2 weeks ago when there was a stackable code to get them down to 135 with free shipping.  I'd check the Wolverine 1K thread to see if there are still codes floating around.  It's still a great deal but OSB is definitely better quality for the price.    

 

@h4id: If you're in love with those shoes you can get them from OSB's website or Independence in Chicago, their flagship store.  Unfortunately, those Trench boots and chukkas are insanely popular and won't likely hit sales anytime soon.  

 

Thread derail /end.

You mention a chukka than say you like the oak street trench boot you should look at the Red Wing Beckman they are made in both styles and Redwing stores are everywhere

Yeah, if you are in Chicago, go to Independence; if they don't have you in stock they can size you and order them for the week.  Ecco, can you PM me the codes you used for the 1Ks to get them at $135?

I want to wear my jeans over the summer to keep breaking them in, but I might have to put them on hold because of too much swamp-ness frown.gif

This made me throw up in my mouth a little.

What are you feeding your balls bro?

You guys have given me a lot of good ideas. I'm totally into the OSB, Red Wing, and Wolverine 1000miles. In a fit of impulse yesterday I ordered Clark's desert boots for now since they're cheap and seem to be good shoes for the warmer seasons. Once I go to school I'm going to check out Independence and try on some OSB's to figure out my forever boot. Any other stores that might have Red Wing/1000 Miles/Alden type boots in Chi?

 

 

Back to thread topic:

 

I'm noticing a 'shelf' of bunched material directly under the knees of my jeans when I stand. There's a lot of extra inseam on my skinny guys and I was hoping the stacks would eat it all up but the bagginess looks odd to me. I read in an interview with the Blue Owl guy that wearing the jeans while they are wet/drying can cause it, so would it shrink back after another wash?

 

I haven't had any alterations done yet, but what helps with this issue? Tapering the leg from the knee down or getting the inseam hemmed shorter? I can post a pic when I get home from work to make things clearer.

A potent mix of 32g protein/day, grilling in the sun, yardwork, and weeks of 70%+ humidity. This is the first year I've ever known my legs to sweat, in pants or shorts, and it's freaking me out a little.

 

I've decided to say f*** it to not washing jeans and see what happens to the precious fades when you treat pants like a normal person. I'm not cool enough to hang with the seasoned denim enthusiasts. It scares me to think about people who say they haven't washed jeans in 3 years... maybe if there were custom-cedar-manikin-leg-shoe-tree contraptions for jeans i could try.

There are a couple Red Wing stores in Chicago. If you want to check out Red Wings and Wolverine you can hit up Belmont Army. They seem to keep a good stock of both.

Plus one.  I was going to make the same recommendation.  But go to Navy Surplus on Belmont (not Belmont Army).  Also check out Sir and Madame; they have RedWings and alot of other good stuff you'd like.
 

 

@Distorbiant: Navy Surplus on Belmont and Belmont Army are no longer synonymous; Belmont Army is now a trendy store in Wicker Park that does not sell anything related to Army or Navy surplus.  I think Navy Surplus on Belmont was a partner in opening Belmont Army and then abandoned shop.  Belmont Army should probably change their name since: (1) they are not located on Belmont and (2) they do not sell any Army stuff.  The name is just a point of confusion at this point.

@h4id Washing your jeans won't hurt your fades as much as you expect.  The more heavily dyed jeans like the Deep Indigos don't even really start to fade until you wash/ soak them.  

 

There are products you can use like Dry Balls or baby powder too.  Or just retire your jeans for the summer like I did, because fuck the 90% humidity in DC.

Clearly you have never worked on a line in a restaurant, that shit is essential.
