Yes they are, I googled that term and they look exactly like that.

The fact that they are called "desert boots" might help inform his choice. That said, crepe soles are actually pretty long wearing and suede does better in the wet than most people think, particularly if you use a protectant spray. I wouldn't want to be trudging around in the snow in those, though, and they won't be particularly warm. Are they even lined?

I thought the pinch test was the best way to figure out a canvassed suit, but this link http://putthison.com/post/35710706689 suggests otherwise. Is asking the salesperson really the only way to determine this? How about for thrifters?

More a matter of the clothes you will be wearing underneath than the coat, per se. I'm going to take a flyer and say Doc Martens.

Thanks.

Unfortunately the sales rep told him they are for the winter and that is how they are marketing them. I convinced him to look into a AE boot instead.

Has he looked at Wolverine?
post #18637 of 30357
Yeah we did, but I think the profile of that boot is too big for what he wears. He choose the AE long branch, now he just wants to find it under 350.

Hello all

 

I saw this coat and I really want to get one for myself. Trouble is as I saw it on TV, I have no idea what brand it is so I don't know where to start looking. Can someone please provide some information on this coat if they know anything?

 

Many thanks!

The treated suede of desert boots does, anyway. I stepped in a creek accidentally with a Clark's desert boot, and it still looks the same as the other one.

Hi Guys,

 

I'll be going to the University of Virginia in January for a student exchange program. I'm coming from a tropical country, so I have no experience with living with snow whatsoever.

 

I will be bringing a few pairs of leather soled shoes over. Is it advisable to topy/vibram them to avoid slipping all over the place?

post #18644 of 30357

I know square shoes are a no no, but i am curious about these cole haans, they taper down to be skinny but they aren't rounded, they have a squareish finish at the end. Are these acceptable?

I'm 6'3 170, and have tons of problems finding clothes that I like the fit/look of.

Why do some thermals/t shirts give me the appearance of man boobs, even though I have none? Not every shirt, just every now and then I'll try something on, and boom.

What kind of boxers are best for wearing under skinnier clothes? I recently picked up some Levis 508s (tapered) and I'm still always struggling with my boxer briefs rolling up on the leg and causing discomfort. And when I wear skinny chinos (not too skinny, they fit fine in the waist) some of them still show a dreaded outline even though there's plenty of loose fabric. I'm thinking I need something that keeps me held in better. Any help appreciated. I really think it's a problem with the underwear, since I'm having problems even when wearing 508s. Same problem with my APC NS.

Finally, in the levi's 508's I got, I tend to roll up the bottoms once for a nicer look. However, the jeans don't seem to want to stay rolled and 5 minutes later the small cuff I created in the pants has gotten bigger. Is this just due to cheap denim? Anything I can do to keep a cuff in place without pinrolling?
