    I cant find the exact model of these Android Homme's anywhere! Are they propulsion 2.5's? I saw them on the non baller thread and it was posted in 2010. P.S all the propulsions look like they have wierd textures and designs unlike these. Anyone?

    Thanks my man I wish I could afford both :)!!!

    Balmain is a bit cheaper than MMM cause its 50% off hence the dilemma.

    MMM is also tempting because I believe they don't release 5 zip in material other than leather every year and leather/shearling is too warm for Indian winter :)!!!

    To be honest they're both pretty meh, you should keep an eye out for the neoprene 5-zip instead or just find something else

    I normally wouldn't ask a question like this unless I exhausted all search options (and I have.....). I'm trying to date this Levi's Type III Trucker Jacket in Bedford Corduroy, black and gold big E tag, single stitch left of bottom button hole, red and white tag in collar. My best guess is pre-'71 although. Saw one on a Japanese site but no date info. Any info appreciated.

    Winter boot in the sub 200 category (deally sub 100). Don't care about fashunz. Just want it to be water proof, excellent tread, warm, and durable.

    Hit me up

    Any REI hiking boot will do the job, just make sure it has goretex. Better to get it fitting in store if possible

    My Garmont (Momentum Snow w/ Goretex) boots have fantastic tread, warmth, and water resistance. They are what they are, pretty ugly, but they get the job done well when it's icy/snowy and cold as fuck.

    EDIT: Yup, got em at REI.

    I'd recommend these: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/65130

    They've lasted me a couple midwest winters now and I feel like they're invincible.

    Appreciate the honest advice :)!!! It is valuable when you are about to blow around 550$ for a knit. I'll keep that in mind and keep searching. Does margiela produce neoprene 5 zips every year coz I could not find it anywhere? Also I could not find viscose 5 zip which RegisDB rocks in WAYWT (SWD). It is so tempting but could not find it anywhere :(!!!

    Oh sorry mixed the materials up, meant the viscose one (don't think there are any neoprene ones)


    I'm pretty sure GDL can arrange for international shipping, but you'd have to ask him how it would be customs and duties. Unfortunately don't know any European stockists for that boot

    Two questions

    1. Any dress shoe recommendations for a shorter guy? E.g., ideally they'd have somewhat more of a heel than your average shoes? I'm looking in the $75-250 range. I wear the standard navy and charcoal suits (conservative cut) if that matters. My build is slender, and I'm a lawyer, so I'm not looking for anything too flashy.

    2. What about a winter coat for a Midwest winter? I don't need something formal, but I'm looking for something that won't look stupid with a suit coat on. Budget is of some concern (I can't afford a $400 jacket -- if need be, I'll just continue wearing my North Face ski jacket).

    For either, I can afford to wait a month or two to get it on sale if need be.

    Anyone know of a decent brand for chunky fisherman raglan knits? Slim to regular comfy fit is fine. TIA

    A question about Jcrew. Is it possible to have matching pants for one of those cotton XS navy jackets?

    Can I just purchase cotton bowery pants to make it a suit?
