    I suppose that's selection bias though, right? The guys that get away with it might be flying under your radar.

    Fair point, that's probably some of it.
    I think there may be another form of selection bias (if that's the correct term) going on as well.
    My personal theory is that there's a certain pathology that both leads many of these guys (the vast majority of them are guys) to engage in this behavior in the first place and also is a component of their success. It's an ability to compartmentalize any thoughts about future consequences -- or even an inability to really recognize or mentally process them at all. These guys live for the charge of spinning a story and being believed, of being the center of attention, and of keeping all the balls in the air. And for many, it's the refusal or inability to confront even easily foreseeable future consequences that makes them convincing con men, because it gives them an air of sincerity most of us couldn't pull off.

    That also gets called the "Toupee fallacy" - everyone is sure they can spot who's wearing a wig, but if course, the best ones never get spotted. See also: plastic surgery.

    Seriously why is it online shops write "this is dirk he's185cm and wears a size 29", you can't use that information for anything without some sort of extra info like weight.

    The worst is shops that don't even give you that. No fit information period.

    Takes a lot for me to go outside of Margiela. Would have to think over heavily but are these any good or is it just a bad idea?

    Those are both nice, Regis. I think you could wear the Cuban heels better than most of us.

    I really love those cuban heel SLP's. I think it would blend into your style pretty well.

    Spilled a bunch of wine on a pair of white converse this weekend while bartending. The shoes were already dirty as fuck, but now they've got this cool ass light purple tilt. Im kind of tempted to buy a new pair and soak them in a bucket of cheap red for a day or two and see what happens.

    No love for Human Made on SF, chaps? There's barely any mention of the brand on here; I really dig it.
