    My heart is set on Starrs if I get PS. And I'd still probably purchase thrift/vintage/ebay shoes if the price was right. I was at Davids (shoe store in Toronto) last summer looking at some Paul Smith Starrs for $250 I think, and I was like "omg they are size 8 I am going to buy" and then I realized it was UK 8 and they were enormous haha I was so sad [​IMG] And ya I really want to step up my game as far as more dressy looks go. I don't know how strict the biz-casual dress code at my internship is, but I feel like it might be an excuse to learn how to dress in that sense. My issue is that I'm like 32R-34R in suit size and 27-28 in pant size, despite being of average height (5'9") so I need to find stuff I can get tailored to my size because nothing fits me OTR and although I have an MTM shirt I can't afford to buy 5-6 of them. @suicmez: I wore a Dior blazer to a presentation I was giving to my physchem class about near field scanning optical microscopy lmao it was for like 10 people but it felt awesome

    Omg I loved it too. Miss it so much. What the hell happened to them?

    They were supposed to become an online magazine or blog and open an b&m store I think. I think LV wanted to sell their items exclusively using their online store too and that was one of Eluxury's selling point, being the only legit online store that sells LV items.

    yeah that was kind of retarded considering LV owned e-luxury. i mean....profit is profit right. it shouldnt matter to them which website it comes from.

    ps. you have mail in random fashion thoughts

    no idea why this thread has no posts today, it belongs on the first page, so bump RFX don't you have any more sneakers to post? can't believe you have reached the bottom of your stash.

    I got more but no more SF approved (at the moment). I could post more if you guys want to flame some more, I got no problem with that. I just don't want to shit all over the thread and be blames why it crashes. [​IMG]

    I'll leave off with this since this hasn't gotten much heat here (yet) but pardon the brown shoes with black jeans combo.

    I think you could, but I guess it depends on the high tops and shorts.

    I just got these for cheap. Anyone able to verify that they're fake? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I bought them expecting them to be fake, but it'd be a pleasant surprise if they turned out genuine CP.

    Spacing might be off on the serial number but I'm not sure.

    Only thing that looks a little weird is the serial number. Not sure though, they look pretty good otherwise.

    Are CP's big enough for people to fake them?

    Those are definitely fake, "Common Projects" is written upside down.

    They don't have the suede back inside the heel either, and they should say "Made in Italy" under the common projects logo inside the shoe. The reason they don't is they were probably not made in Italy :p Code is also not the same as my CP Patent Mids in 41... but that could be yearly? Regardless, on the patent sneakers the code is stamped really lightly. Those look pretty heavily stamped. Also, is that sole even stitched to the shoe? I can't completely tell but it doesn't look like it. Lol oh and the little graph thingy on the sole should be circled, and the bottom imprinted squiggly area isn't right but it's hard to describe why. Let's just say... Fakeeeeeeee. @Razele: They fake rick dunks... no surprise to see fake cp
