    Last two are fine, not sure you're not better off with cowboy-lite. Last shape of real cowboy boots is hard to deal with. I sometimes search for cowboy boots and look at those types but I dunno, just wouldn't work for me, I guess you area/background is a little bit (understatement of the century) better for them.

    You mean a plainer pair, or something different altogether? I don't have many pairs of jeans that would even work with the shaft, I think - but cowboy-lite kind of seems like what I look for already.

    Stuff like the side-zips you posted a few weeks ago or maybe just ropers?

    I tried a pair of pull-on ropers as well, but I don't think they'd fit under your slp denim.

    I guess most forum members would find it easier to be Tom Ford nocturnal animals cowboys than actual cowboys, hence my cowboy-lite comment:

    It was ok I guess. Perfume ad look, hammy symbolism (her blue/cold world versus the red/hot world of the south) and long punishing scene to add the #serious hashtag.

    I didn't even see the comment mentioning the movie by name and this was sufficient to guess what it was.

    It sounded terrible based on the Guardian review (which was confessedly hostile).

    A quick google tells me it is a "five star" review, didn't read it though.

    Looked this up myself and there's another opinion (sort of a review of the review) and the woman who wrote it is having none of the movie. Sounds pretty awful the way she describes it.

    Ah, I guess it was an opinion column, not in the movies section … confusing. Victoria Coren's.

    She forgot to say there weren't enough black people. I def don't come at it from the same angle as her...

    Do we even need to mention that there aren't enough black people? It's Hollywood after all. Liberal pieties only seem to go as far as the fundraisers. The movies on the other hand give America what it wants.
