Thanks for the reference, sounds like I should prolly take a small but I think I'ma get a XS, because I don't want this to be a boxy fit in any way (and If I mess up, I'm only out $50). Also, the guy in the above photo is wearing an XS, I asked.

Oh and If you guys are looking to buy the coat too, code 1913 gives you 10% off so it amounts to about $51 shipped. Not bad.

do this for me. only ask for 150$ quality for 150$

Yea man, I'm not expecting a work of art in boot form by any means, but I can't really afford Tricker's or Alden's right now (studying abroad in London in like 3 months). I think these will be good winter boots, and I won't have to worry too much about beating them up. And you have to admit, they look pretty good.

Yo reedo, I know you're low on cash, but check out Grenson boots. They're more expensive, but not like Alden $$$, and you'll get the same look as the boots you posted but wayyyyy better quality. If you can find a sale it might be worth it.

also interested in those Mr. B boots. Want some wingtips real bad and in a similar position to reedo. but I'm definitely going to keep my eyes open for a sale on grensons.

yo can you hit me with some fit pics? I'm a similar size to you (shorter, chubbier...lol) and really love the look of those pointer coats, but figured they'd be too big. but maybe a washed xs could work.

i just tried it on again and it actually doesnt fit as well as i thought it did. it's just really boxy. i think an XS would definitely fit you, you may need to shorten the sleeves though.

Also, I'd suggest Loake's Banks boot. I've had a pair for a couple years and they've held together great, and they can be found for about $190 shipping included

Yea, who knows if I'll actually keep these boots, I can return them tho and free shipping so I'm not sweating it. If they don't work out, Grenson will likely be my next move. But I literally compared the Mr B's and Grenson sharps one picture next to the other and really could not for the life of me tell the difference (didn't look super close though). Maybe this Mr. B line is a way for Aldo to rehab its image. If so, I think it's working.

Annnnnd I bought dat chore coat in XS, I'll let you guys know how it fits.
post #19389 of 38448
The difference is less in appearance than construction (ever watch this? it's interesting http://vimeo.com/11075261). That said, on the Mr. B site they talk about old world construction and all that. Sounds good. But hard to believe for the price. Let us know how they are.

Hey guys I posted this a few days ago on random fashion thoughts but didn't get a response.. was wondering if someone could help me solve a dilemma.

Determined I'm ordering the Filson x Levi's Trucker. But can't figure out what other jacket to order.. clueless on what color in Sapper or the field Jacket to grab as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Barbour Sapper. I like all 3 colors equally :/

Thank you guys!

These are probably the nicest Nike dunks I have ever seen, are they worth getting? I know Nike is not sartorially endorsed but I think these are a work of art (they have about 7 different textured on the upper). Opinions on whether I should buy please.

Seven different textures is not a plus.  Those look terrible
