    Should I expect Clarks Desert Mali boots to stretch? (I know the regular DBs do, just not sure if these would be different.)

    check b&s for other diors or similar used denim and price appropriately...the 19cm are something of a classic, so you shouldn't get totally hosed
    red lining threw me, but details look otherwise similar to the piece from john elliot and co

    Are they usually longer though? I wear size 10 in Converse and I tried on Red Wing Iron Ranger in size 9 and it was noticeably longer than the size 10 in Converse.

I'm looking at a pair of size 28 RRL's and I was wondering if they'd fit more like 30's or 31's . I tried asking the seller for measurements but they wont give me any

    Yea RRL runs about 2 inches larger than tagged on both pairs that I have. My 31x32 slim fits measured 33" in the waist new and have stretched out an inch to 34.

    You need to size thighs though, more important than waist measurement

    Anyone have suggestions as to which backpack a Grade 12 student should purchase? I have been wearing a Herschel Supply Little America backpack for a while and I loved it....until everyone starting wearing it. Any suggestions? thanks.

    I can vouch this. I found only about 1" extra in the waist myself, not 2" though.

    I think I'm gonna get a Tanner belt, but I wanted to know:

    How much darker does the "natural" color get over time?

    [​IMG]




    Will it get as dark as the "vegetable tanned"?

    [​IMG]



    Or should I just get the vegetable tanned to begin with if that's the color I prefer (though I'd like the shade to be a bit lighter to be honest)?



    Edit:

    Okay, I must be blind, but I just noticed how big and obvious their branding is:

    [​IMG]


    Is it only exposed there because the belt isn't wrapped all the way to the middle hole, or is it always gonna be that obvious?

    You don't notice the branding IME. TypicAlly the end of the belt covers it up.

    The belt will get super dark tho. Here's mine after 3 years hard wear.

    Yea, you don't notice the branding, the end of the belt covers it.

    Mine isn't nearly as dark as that, but I suppose that belt as a lot more sun exposure.

    I prefer the natural just because it darkens over time based on your use, sort of like if you like raw denim and how it fades over time.

    Exactly why I went with the natural also.

    Just picked up a vintage canvas (with some leather accents) bag. However it has a rather strong musky/old smell. How can I get rid of this smell?
    Thanks

    Alright, thanks, guys. Natural it is.

    Real nice age on that belt, hooker, btw.

    So what constitutes a "good deal" for a used DH blazer or suit?

    Is there a thread that'll give me an idea what people are wearing Europe? Sort of a "WAYWT" Europe edition or something. Or even just something that'll give me some info on Euro fashion in general - Anything relating to European style or fashion really. Current trends, sales, etc. I am going there for a few months later this year and would like to know how differently, or alike, we happen to dress.

    I'm building a new website and am looking for feedback. Site is called What Goes With This? (http://whatgoeswiththis.co) and it's answering that common question.

    What do you like about the site and what would you like to see added? We're adding a login, the ability to write comments about things, and a M/F filter, but anything else? Thanks!

    Here is a pretty dumb basic question, but how should a new pair of jeans fit the first time you put them on before they stretch out? Is the refrain about "you should barely be able to button them" and all that really true?

    I ask because I went to try on a pair of 510s, and I had to size down because I have lost weight. But it was kind of a pain in the ass to get them over my calves and stuff. I could get them buttoned without a MAJOR fight, but it was still pretty snug.

    Is that dumb? Should breaking in a new pair of jeans really be that drastic? Or is that a little overkill?
