Any idea how does patent leather wear out. I dont really want them to be super shiny and judging by the pictures they dont look that much shinier (compared to CPs for example). So I guess I wont contrast too much from the scenery lol.

i used to have white patent sneakers a while ago, they stayed shiny but that was because i didnt 'wear' them. i babied them lol

Yes wurm. And Adam's great to deal with; really reasonable when it comes to offers.

Oh okay. I wouldnt mind them getting worn out. I bet theyd look just as fine, plus I feel weird when wearing shoes you can tell are brand new; or look too outlandish like something Lady Gaga would wear, thats why I hope my sense of style is in check here lol.

If you're just worried about the patent leather being way too shiny, but still want white leather shoes, then Common Projects Achilles in white might be a good alternative. The cost is probably about the same.

If you think that you might want to go for canvas instead of leather, the white canvas Maison Kitsune are probably ~$100 or so cheaper than the leather options. But, if you're going the canvas route, it might be better to just get a cheaper pair from Saturdays/Vans/Superga/etc.

I do want leather yes. Last two canvas sneakers were unwearable, made me blisters on my ankles. I have either weird feet or really bad luck. And yes Ive looked into Common Projects and they are fine but, I dig this design more.

 

I just looked and the shoes are actually polished calf leather witch is not the same as patent leather, that would mean they wouldnt be as stiff I guess. Strangely some sites say its patent but not the official.

And then I'm wondering: should I go with a pair of these? or should I just pick up a pair of Uniqlo or Levis jeans to fill in for my lack of distressed/super-faded jeans?

I'm looking for a pair of gray jeans feels dressy and close fitting like this http://us.burberry.com/store/menswear/denim/london/prod-38549461-steadman-grey-wash-slim-fit-jeans/

 

Willing to pay up to $200. Any recommends? 

 

Edit : No selvedge please. I need to wash my jeans at least once or twice a month

Selvedge has nothing to do with washing of jeans... you should just get some N&F, which will probably be lighter. The APC faux noir might work if you can find a discount code somewhere. Dior gray washes will run you much more than that.
post #32683 of 38532
To add to what cyc said, you're thinking of raw denim, which people usually wash as infrequently as possible. With that said, you could still wash them as often as you liked and it would be perfectly acceptable, you just wouldn't get high contrast fades.
post #32684 of 38532
The difference between washing vs. not washing is also much less significant with non-indigo denim, and it's irrelevant if the warp threads have been core-dyed.

Need some sweatpants or casual cotton pants for casual fridays at work. Which Isaora one should I get?
