    Hello, my dad is going to Tokyo soon and I was wandering if anyone knows where he can get a Hare M65 and if anyone knows other good pieces (Mostly Tops/Outerwear) he can get over there? Thanks.

    has SuFu been down for a really long time or is it my computer?

    I had the same exact problem for a while when I was living at my old address in Los Angeles. None of my browsers would load SuFu.

    But whenever I tried it in San Diego or in San Jose, it worked just fine.

    It's probably your ISP.

    asos is a legit store, but their own line of clothing is really shitty quality.

    thanks, i'll avoid the asos branded stuff then.

    I know this has been asked, but what site do you guys use to view old runway shows? I know of GQ.com ([​IMG]), but they don't have older Dior Homme shows, which is what I'm looking for ATM.

    I usually buy my boots a size larger so I can wear them with thick socks and insoles, but while the arch and toe usually fit fine, sometimes the heel is a little lose, especially with thinner socks.. is it a bad for my feet if the heel slips a little bit? Do those "heel grippers" work at all? Should I stick to buying my size?

    This is a minor repost from the Alden thread; it's not really Alden-specific, but it involves an issue with a pair of Indy Boots:

    I have a pair of 403s -- Chromexcel Indy Boots -- and am having a bizarre problem with the tongue on the left boot.

    The problem is this: about 60 seconds after walking around in the boot, the tongue falls to the left down into the small space between the left side of my foot and the side of the boot. I can pull the tongue back up, but it will fall back down after another 1 to 3 minutes of walking. Sometimes if I've been sitting for a while it will slip down on its own.

    The right shoe doesn't have this problem at all, and bizarrely enough the tongue on the right shoe looks very, very well worn in unlike the one on the left (these boots are about a month old), which has some but not a lot of signs of wear. I'm hoping that this is something that goes away with age, but the issue here is that this slippage problem is preventing the tongue from breaking in in a way that might prevent this in the future. (Also, thickness of socks does not affect this problem; the burliest of wool socks or the thinnest of dress socks don't affect this one way or another.)

    So... any ideas? I had thought about putting a tongue pad on the bottom of the tongue facing my foot, but am looking for something less invasive/less permanent. Is there some kind of Chromexcel-friendly adhesive I could use that would be removable and wouldn't damage the leather? It'd have to stick to some fairly oily leather...

    Thanks in advance, everyone!

    ^^the website you linked to does not feature any ties, so I can't be of any service to you

    What company makes saddle shoes with red brick soles that run wide? Tried Opening Ceremony when I was in NYC, and they were far too narrow.
    I wear about a size 11.5-12

    In the long run it can be bad for the lining of the shoes (rubbing=wear), but I don't think your feet will be damaged more than blisters and the like.

    It's a semi-common problem, search the Alden thread for information and possible fixes

    Doesn't Alden make some? I remember Kiya posting some a while back but don't remember the manufacturer

    wow, I have same problem exactly with a pair of old school energie high top combat sneaker boots. As you said, the right tongue wore in nicely and stays erect while the left guy limps and falls to the left of laces.. i figured it had simply to do with age and how the laces were arranged originally..

    Thinking of buying APC jeans since I heard great things about them. Normally I wear a size 30x30 in jeans (Lucky Brand, Levis, etc...). What size should I get? 32x32?

    Thanks!

    Dunno really. I'm kinda a newbie to this whole "shrink fit" trend. Out of the 3: New Cure, New Standard, or Rescue found at Tobi: http://www.tobi.com/men/home/shop-by-brand/3-a-p-c

    Which ones tend to give the best fit?
