    From what I gather, 3sixteen slim-tapered has nearly the same cut as 19cm but a bit skinnier in the thigh? Hopefully someone else can confirm.

    hello

    I invested in my first pair of proper grown up boots about 4/5 months ago and just wanted to check when should they be resoled. They seem to have 3 or 4 different layers of sole and i wasn't sure which layer would be the point of no return so to speak. is it the layer i'm currently working through or can i keep wearing them once I'm walking on the darker layer? sorry for the bad photo, best I could do

    I want to start using a proxy service for Y! Japan that lets you do the bidding yourself. Anyone use one that they can recommend?

    Not sure they make a size small enough for me, their size 28 (smallest) says it's waist is actually 29 inches...

    @ Gorm That second layer is a framing. If you plan to resole those you'll not want to hit that layer unless you really want to pay an arm and a leg as well as sound like a women who can't walk in heels while you clop around like a horse. Considering it is your first pair of grown up boots as you said, asking your local cobbler to form and stick a rubber sole is a bit different then asking for a new heel frame AND sole.

    @ BlackSamurai30 You have to try on some different brands. Sporting some skinny jeans is all about accenting without looking like you are smuggling plums or have a constant wedge. I swear by a pair of bullheads for denims because of my build. (I have the build of a boxer.)

    My first post and recent change of style choices for the new year. I recently changed from print shirts with solid shoes and ties to solid chalky colors and shoes like these.I would like the opinions of others outside my Appalachian paradise on wearing these as an accent anywhere else.

    In my line of work I teeter the lines of informal business, I must make a bold statement and absolutely cannot look stuffy and aged. I breath new air into old businesses and must take on the appearance of "change" or "this is now."

    Sometimes I feel they are over the top but I love the fading dual tone and compliments I get keep them on my feet.

    Question is Can I get away with these outside of my home base?

    Looking for something to wear as my default everyday shoe (sneaker).

    Are converse / vans frowned upon?

    What would you recommend?

    Tailoring Suit Pants Q.

    I bought a suit about 12 months ago from J.Crew. The pants i got were waist 33 regular fit.

    I've lost a lot of weight since then and now i wear waist 32 slim fit.

    So the 33 regular fit is very loose at the waist and baggy around the thighs.

    How feasible/costly is it to ask my tailor to convert the 33 regular fit into 32 slim fit?

    Cheers!

    How long do you think an untucked casual (OCBD, flannel) shirt should be (in terms of distance from/across the ass)? I can't tuck shirts in because I have a short torso and it looks ridiculous.

    Would that not be more of a reason to in fact tuck them?

    I too have a short torso, short legs at least, and untucked shirts end at the bottom of my crotch generally. So I'm going to be shortening them. However when I do tuck them they're fine.

    I just bought a pair of Red Wing Beckmans in cigar, and I'm unsure if I want to polish them or use Obenaufs. Can someone show me a before and after picture, I can't seem to find one? Or help me decide which one to go with, as I live in Ohio and protecting from the weather is a factor.

    I would have to agree with this logic. A short torso shouldn't cause tucking in a shirt to look wrong at all. How would it do so?

    If you tuck everyone can see your short torso because we can see were it starts and ends (would need a really low pant rise to compensate this but not impossible),,, when untucked you cant see where the torso ends, make sense?

    btw- torso does not include legs.

    It makes my torso look tiny and my legs ridiculously long. Looks like I'm wearing clown pants, with my pants up by my bellybutton. I'll try to take a picture sometime tomorrow.
