    Previous Small Questions Thread (up to Feb. 3, 2010) can be found here: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=33849 ------------------------------- i need a beater shoe and will buy some converse. currently choosing between high top chucks and purcells. leaning towards the purcell but heard somewhere that the hightop chuck makes for better draping of trousers. any truth to this? thats pretty much the only reason i'm considering the chucks.

    Big answer post of the week.
    Anyone know of anywhere still selling last springs Band of Outsiders x Sperry Navy reconstructed boat shoe, the one found here: http://www.thetannery.com/ProductDet...8234&sid=42078 looking for a size 10, would also post in WTB but more a lurker than poster and don't have enough posts, thanks in advance
    I'm sure these will be released again for SS10. They were a big hit. Alternatively, Gilt's having a BoO sale soon (probably during February), and they've sold BoO boat shoes in the past.
    i need a beater shoe and will buy some converse. currently choosing between high top chucks and purcells. leaning towards the purcell but heard somewhere that the hightop chuck makes for better draping of trousers. any truth to this? thats pretty much the only reason i'm considering the chucks.
    Draping of trousers? Will you hear your high-top Chucks with trousers? With jeans either looks fine. Purcells have a slightly preppier vibe. Buy whichever one you like (or, hell, get some Stan Smiths).
    http://www.amazon.com/Original-Signa...ref=pd_sbs_a_2 Any particular reason not to buy this?
    Why would you buy it? Have you tried it on before?
    Can anyone help me with this? I wanna return them by the end of the day tomorrow and i'm not sure whether to go with size 7 or 8 hi tops. I think 8s would provide just enough room to slap an insert in them for extra support but does that even work out well with these shoes? I could prob get an insert in the 7s if they were lower profile like those slim gel inserts or something but i dunno if that would be enough?
    Not familiar with inserts in Chucks, but in general I hate walking around in Chucks. I buy Purcells solely b/c they have inserts (and don't destroy your knees), and use my Chucks for weightlifting.

    I need recommendations on some kind of jacket/outterwear that is not leather or wool + will keep me warm.

    Thanks~

    (Edit: This, um, IS the 'small questions' thread. Heh )

    When you post there, can you give the forum a better idea of jackets you've seen that you like? Also, some idea of cuts, materials, colors, and how you plan to use this jacket and where you live?

    Otherwise (and I mean this sincerely) you'll get a series of really smarmy, wiseassed replies, in which I'll participate, and you'll go away feeling used and upset. And you won't have gotten a helpful answer either. It's just how things work here.
