Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2106

post #31576 of 37273

Q: I need to build out my shoe collection. I'm thinking of buying one of these three pairs:

http://www.yoox.com/us/44477569GE/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80_m&cod10=44477569GE&sizeId=

 

 

(In dark brown, they don't have black in my size) http://www.yoox.com/us/44477663CO/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80_m&cod10=44477663CO&sizeId=

 

 

 

I currently have a black pair of oxfords and a dark brown pair for work only (for when I wear suits, which isn't often);  a dark brown pair of derbys and a medium-brown pair of leather Varvatos chukkas for casual/streetwear. Would appreciate suggestions on which of the 3 should be my next streetwear purchase.

how is the leather on momas looks so terrible in the yoox photos.
post #31579 of 37273
not bad not bad. relatively soft, full grain. it's not particularly thick, nor is the texture all that interesting, but at the same time it doesn't feel cheap

Hi folks...

This is technically suede, but I suppose it generally fits under the 'leather' category.

I'm toying with purchasing one of these and can't make up my mind....assuming price differences aren't an issue, which one would you go for?

#1- Calvin Klein Collection jacket....$550 down from $1,500 (I would never buy it at that price).

#2 - Club Monaco blue suede bomber. I think the color is interesting.

Thoughts?

Mine have really nice leather, very thick and durable and slightly waxed. Another pair I owned for a short period had less nice leather, though I believe they were from S/S as opposed to F/W

Dude looking at MOMAs, won't hurt to try them all, esp. w/ that 15% off code

good to know re: moma. may try at some point in the future. has anyone ever posted detail shots of them?
post #31583 of 37273
i was 'ok' with the pair i owned. was soft, medium weight, but it didn't have the tactile feel i've come to associate with really good leather, ie: aldens, C&Js, etc.

Would not spend $700 on Club Monaco. The CK was crazy over-priced to begin with at $1,500 and is now just silly over-priced. Got to say that you can do better. Maybe look at Yoox. For just a bit more you will move up a lot in quality with ToJ.

+1. Even though Club Monaco regularly goes on sale, that's still pretty steep.

not sure if toj/jc have ever done a suede bomber/ma-1, but if they could do that you should get that instead, or some other toj suede jacket, pretty sure they're all cheaper than 950$

How does this stack up w/ other SNS offerings?  Only pt of comparison is the stark.
