fortunately for you guys, boozing begets kopping
Too bad it's a bit expensive flight from Toronto to NY. I would party and kop a few NMWA items.
I'd wear my charcoal SS Merino too @LA Guy
question for the gents with Butteros. I have a pair of the sueded green ones and my denim has started bleeding on them in certain areas. Whats the best to eliminate/lessen the bleeding onto the shoes?
I bet that you could find a cheap Thursday fare.
Next time Fok, I should of planned it in advance. I'm sure it will be a blast.
I mean, I would say, "Bring Everything," but that seems unfair. How about "Bring All the Monitaly?" Is that better?
Anyway, thanks, Greg!
As far as I know, bleeding will occur as long as the hem is in contact with the suede. You might have more luck if you cuff them slightly, such that only the interior of the jeans are in contact with the suede. If the jeans are newer and raw, I've found that even cuffing them can't completely get rid of te bleeding. Fortunately, the dye will come off with water/saphir suede "shampoo". After all, the dye is water soluble.
I don't mind a bit of the bleeding. I love when my shoes get character but being I have like 5 new pairs of denim I don't want my shoes to look too discolored. Does a waterproof spray help at all on the shoes?
Received exchanged items in the mail today. OS Eton White Collar Shirt - I originally purchased a 15.5 (always have been that size) but it was a VERY slim fit and was super tight when I tried it on. I exchanged it for the 16.5 and couldn't be happier with the overall fit. I would definitely recommend those who were interested in the OS shirts to size up one.
And I ordered the Monitaly raglan zipper jacket in light grey melton wool in size 40. I never did e-mail NMWA but the exchange process went so smoothly last time that I wouldn't mind exchanging the jacket for a larger size if it doesn't work out.
I second the advice to cuff the jeans.
Anyone with pics of the burgundy buttero chukka?
I find cuffing helps. At some point, the denim stops bleeding, and you can wear your jeans uncuffed.
To get stains out, I you can try using Jason Markk for sneakers. I find the stuff works like magic.
Interested in the Heschung sherling lined boots. Noticed they have "latex" soles. Are they really more durable than any other kind of rubber sole? not much online about them.
Doesn't really matter, just curious. I'm going to resole them eventually anyway.
I do cuff my denim. It always happens as they are breaking in. I will try the Markk stuff when I can locate it.
I wear french cuffs (and therefore cufflinks) with odd jackets all the time - often without a tie. Provided the cuffs are proportional - not oversized - and the links aren't inspired by Flavor Flav's neckwear you'll be fine.
