    I'm looking at Viberg and Yuketen for a pair of Derbys. I think I'd like a all black shoe.


    I can't warrant spending 500-600$ on a pair of canvas sneakers that are almost identical to converse. If I were to buy a Visvim shoe it would be an fbt.

    I honestly don't know what colors of footwear I need...

    Can anyone comment on the sizing of the mismatched flip flops? Also, does anyone know who manufacturers these (if it's not EG themselves)? They're listed as Made in USA.

    picked up my olive ripstop bedford from Drinkwaters yesterday. fit seems just a tad looser than last ss (comparing to cotton twill navy bedford). overall really happy with it. fabric is a bit thicker than i was expecting, which i'm happy with. olive color is slightly duller than my reversed sateen workaday jacket.

    If anyone is able to try on the new slip-ons today, can you confirm the sizing?

    Previous seasons have used Vans Vault sizing, which is 1/2 size larger than regular Vans Authentics. Is it the same this time?

    Just got back from NNY, I found the sizing in line with previous seasons (and the same as my other pairs of Vans LX).

    Slip ons were $85. I didn't buy sk8 hi's but I believe they were $115 (don't hold me to this but 90% sure)

    Honestly this would depend largely on your size and the color you want. There was quite a bit of most sizes though until i left approximately 2:30pm - 3. There is always the chance for the after work rush... Sorry this isn't more helpful. If I had my damn unlimited metrocard I would even pop back over after work today to give you guys an update hah

    Seems like there were a lot left when I stopped by today.

    Just an FYI, I wear size 9 in Vans (Eras, Authentics, Old Skool, regular slip-ons) and the EG slip-ons in size 8 were still a bit big.

    The slip-ons were a bit wider than regular Vans slip-ons too, which is probably why they were a bit big on me. Decided not to pull the trigger, but the quality is great.

    Got mine from The Bureau this week. Agree with you that the fabric is a bit thicker than I was expecting. It's also a bit darker than I was anticpating as well. Would have preferred to not have the sewn buttons. The one thing I'd like to change, however, is I would have really liked to have the sleeves lined. It was a little difficult putting my arms through the sleeve.

    As for the fit, this is my first S/S Bedford, but I acutally find it to be more snug than my F/W ones.

    in general i think most ss bedfords aren't lined.

    why do people dislike the sewn buttons so much?
