    Could these make it into the jeans and blazer look? or is that ridiculous?

    Keep in mind, once the jeans are over the boots they become a lot more understated

    It's not ridiculous. It's ri-dane-cook-ulous.

    Yeah, those boots are too casual for a blazer. That said, I do like Frye Harness boots.

    Can anyone recommend me a boot that can take a beating and quality? I'm moving to the UK from Florida and I really want to have a pair of boots that'll withstand the harsh winter weather. I considered Red Wing heritage but those are quite expensive and still kinda clunky on my small frame.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    I don't know if these would look too cowboy for you (I live in TX), but my Red Wing Pecos boots are still going strong after 16 -- 16! -- years. They've been through high school, fraternity hazing, road work, rain, sleet, snow -- pretty much anything you can think of. And I've never had to get them resoled:

    Does anyone know the brand of these shoes, or can you recommend similar shoes? I like them a lot.

    While I have no experience with this particular brand, $1000 USD for a non-leather jacket from a designer Japanese label is commonplace. I paid around $1000 for my wjk M65 jacket and $1200 for my DBSS down jacket.

    I'd say there are 3 reasons for the high price....

    1. The quality is often noticeably better than domestic designer brands. Higher end fabrics and hardware are commonly used. And the clothing is frequently made in Japan, not overseas.

    2. The USD is really weak relative to the yen right now. Thus this jacket appears more affordable to the Japanese customer than it does you or I.

    3. I have heard it is common for Japanese stores to desire that many new labels have higher prices, causing the customer to associate the label with other higher end brands. It would appear that Japanese consumers are even more likely than us to equate high prices with higher quality.
