*Drops mic*

If you're going to get on your grammatical high horse you want to make damn sure what you say is correct. Apostrophes are also used to denote contractions, such as 'can't, I'll' etc. Furthermore it is acceptable to use an apostrophe when you are pluralising an individual letter such as mind your p's and q's.

 

And like all good rules in english, there is an exception for your rule about denoting possession: its = belonging to it - it's = it is.

"It is THEIR puropose"

Communication on the Internet is often written in shorthand, as was some of the content in your awesome message. Someone might get a stick up their ass about you mispelling words and using CAPS ALL THE GODDAMN TIME WITH A BILLION EXCLAMATION MARKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Live, let live, and let's keep it about shoes on here. Did you know grammar nazis are the 5th ring of hell in Dante's inferno?

hi all, I want to buy the Alden x Jcrew suede in 7.5D US but i'm size 6UK in raf simons and common projects sneakers (sorry for the reference), are them fit me? thanks

Going to be wearing these regularly to darken them up faster hopefully. Carmine's shade of Nat CXL is pretty sharp, wonder what they use to treat the leather after they get them from Chi-town...

I also take 40 and 6uk in bramd you mentioned

If you are talking about barrie last lwb or ptb, you will need 6.5us which jcrew never offers

  • J.Crew Snuff Suede

  • Black Shell - 9751
  • Color 8 Shell - 975
  • Whiskey Shell (Alden of Carmel; incoming!)
  • Ravello Shell (incoming!)


All I'm wanting at this point is to find a pair of Cigar LWBs and possibly add a few more suede and CXL variants into the mix. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hi David,

 

Sounds like quite a LWB collection you've got going already. If it's not too much trouble, would you mind posting pics of the Kudu/Crepe lwb? It sounds like a fun combo.

 

Do you know if Adam at AofC has any more whiskey?

 

Where did you score a ravello lwb?

 

Re CXL variants, Kathy at DC tells me she has some Blue CXL lwbs left. May be worth checking in with her...

 

Regards,

D

Nice nattys, DpprDr! Epaulet? I just got some in myself and am hoping to patinate them as quickly as possible. Any members of the natty club who can offer tips on getting these bad boys to develop a fun Argentino-esque patina?

 

Wear in good health!
