    I'm trying to decide whether to get a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots, I don't own any real boots and I've been wanting to get a nice pair. The often recommended 1000 Miles look great, but I would prefer something just a little less casual and less rugged looking. I'll be wearing them because I like the looks, and not because I'm in need of a tough and durable work boot (though of course quality is never a bad thing).

    Anyone have any recommendations? The guides I've seen seem to go straight from the Wolverines to the polished dressy boots you could wear with a suit. It could be there's less of a gap there than I realize.

    I just want something that doesn't look wrong if worn by a guy who clearly hasn't just gotten back from a hunting trip. I dunno, maybe I'm worrying too much about if the looks fit me or whatever. Maybe I stick with my nice safe CDBs, I don't actually NEED 1000 Miles.

    A question about color, I've been browsing the review thread for them... a lot of pics of brown and rust colored 1000 Miles, not too many cordovan. Any reason why? Does the reddish color stand out too much and draw attention or something like that? I sort of like the color, but I also like to dress conservatively but nice. Not sure if I should go cordovan or stick with conservative safe brown, if I do go with these boots. The price is the same on all the color options.

    The fabric on this jacket feels really cheap. Not substantial at all.. Uni-Qlo makes some nice outerwear, however, this jacket isn't too great


    Nanamica outerwear, however, is consistently high quality. If this is a style that suits you, I'd say go for it

    Not to pile on, but out of all the leather jackets in the world, I'm not sure why you'd want the one with hacking pockets :confused:

    That thing looks mad versatile. Spend a day wearing it with black denim and sidezips looking like a badass, then lend it to your fedora-wearing greasy-ponytailed friend so he can protect his celibacy for a while longer
