    Any of you folk have experience with Mr. Hare shoes/boots? I have been eying them up lately, but don't know much about them quality/fit-wise. Would love to hear some feedback if you have any.

    Hi SF members. Long time lurker, first time poster with a quick and easy question. I'm looking for a good place to buy casual button-up shirts, either in-store (San Francisco area) or online. I'm mainly looking for solid and patterned shirts to wear with jeans and black sneakers. I'm looking for shirts in the $30-50 range. Thanks for any tips.


    Lands end canvas. find the thread here for coupons.

    No, any tailor can hem any pair of jeans. If you want a chainstitched hem, though, very few people do that.

    i think someone suggested in the past that taking them to a weaver would be a good idea if you wanted them patched up.

    Moving to LA at the end of the year from the east coast. Realistically, how many boots do you LA'ers have, and do you actually wear them? I've amassed a load of boots in the years living on the east coast and can't see myself wearing anything other than sneakers when I'm not working.

    Thanks!

    I have 3 pairs of boots, and I've only gotten around to wearing one of them so far. They are handy in the winter when it's cooler, though, plus it does rain sometimes out there. Usually when it rains, it rains hard, so boots are useful then.

    forgiveness if this has been discussed before or is a silly question. I noticed recently that the Dr Martens MIEs I have been seeing look different than mine. The eyelets of mine are not metal......was looking to pick up some oxblood MIE shoes online, and noticed that they have metal eyelets - mine do not. Here are some photos........ [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Picked these up many many years ago at a spot that was going out of business......likely before Docs were ever made anywhere except England.... when I picked them up, I was unaware that production had moved and only recently looked at them and noticed that they were MIEs. Got them for about $15. Last pair in the store. they were missing laces and I never got around to getting new ones until recently..........have been in closet for at least 10 plus years Perhaps they are seconds of some sort. Is this eyelet normal? Of course, I see that the eyelet has metal on the inside......is it just missing a piece of the grommet that should be on the outside?

    Can someone recommend a good quality necklace/chain that's not too expensive that I can add my own pendant to? Preferably available online.

    If they had an outer metal eyelet, it would probably have left a mark. It's likely by design (reinforced blind eyelet)
