I just bought a pair of vintage style, 6 eye leather boots from Officine Creative, and i'm wondering if anyone has experience in how long it generally takes to break them in?
That's kind of what I was thinking but I thought that was too big of a price increase just for some brand recognition, but maybe not. I tried emailing RL through the contact thing on their site but they never responded. Maybe they were too embarrassed about the mark-up lol. I'd rather have a clean looking sweater anyway, the logo could be a color that sometimes I might not want in a given outfit I'm trying to put together. (like that bright green logo on the charcoal sweater)
I'm looking to buy a pair of black lace ups, but am not sure where to start, preferably black with a leather sole and nothing too complicated in terms of design, something like this would be perfect:
thing is, I'm on a bit of a budget, looking for something in the range of 150-200. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
I have a pair of Loake Oban 8F on 1639 last which fits me quite well.
I am trying to compare it to C&J 7.5 E Harvard Loafer on the 314 last.
It seems that the Loake is quater of an inch wider at ball of foot but i dont know if maybe C&J may have more room in that area of the shoe.
Any input would be appreciated.
I'm currently a college student and I'm getting tired of always wearing gym shoes/tennis shoes. I'd really like to get some casual leather shoes (they don't necessarily have to be leather). I live in Florida so I always wear khaki shorts/cargo shorts and a polo. What shoes do you think I should get? By the way, I do not like penny loafers/moccasins so those are out. Thank you, I appreciate your respones.
That place scares me. In their WAYWRN thread (or the equivalent), there was a guy wearing a gas mask (not photoshopped). Why would you wear a gas mask? Do you live under threat of chemical warfare?
It is a strange, strange place.
