Good looks pingson an crat. Those coats are fantastic.
I think SW&D could probably learn a lot about shoes from CM. A lot of SW&D shoes tend to be shit quality.
I kinda want a pair of Vass.
My version of SW&D. I hope it's not too bad. I'd love to hear from some of the SW&D dudes on it.
really? i assumed all the MMM/ann D/RO/jil/raf ..... shoes were good stuff?
either way, buy vass.
please please please remove that scarf. also your jeans fit terribly and your socks make me want to cut myself. tshirt is also ugly but not as egregious. cardigan is ok!
Well they certainly have their own way of offering advise in SW&D, don't they? lol
They are fucking vicious. I really wish the villain or ...shit...I can't remember the other guy's name...Marius or whatever...had shown up in that thread rather than ours. They would have been eviscerated.
The Villain came to the leather-jackets thread over in SW&D, I commented, and he deleted the post
Srsly! If the villain thought WE were mean...
Honestly I don't mind viciousness, or snark. However I do wish there was more construction, rather than destruction. What I mean is, it's great to know what is wrong with it, but also tell me how I could have made it better!
Even though the pics are worse, I think I should enter this instead of the previous one...

Apparently, cardigans is how CM does SWD.
One pair of my MMM boots are nice, but hardly well-made. The others are falling apart after a year (hole in the lining, leather all crinkly). Ann shoes are very nice. The pair of raf shoes I have are one of the nicest I've ever seen, super hefty sole and crazy construction, but I owned another pair that had like a plastic and glued sole (although the leather was still nice). I haven't handled Jil. RO is notorious for making shitty quality shoes.
What last? I want a hefty boot but I think the U-last may be too tall.
Try this with a white t-shirt instead
1. Loose the scarf
2. Get better fitting jeans (look at tapered models)
3. Switch the tee to a white one
4. Boots instead of vans, would mesh better with selvedge jeans + cardigan
5. Get a nicer knit, something chunkier (like the sns herning stitches posted above)
I know! I would have worn a leather jacket if I had one. Speaking of which, I've been meaning to get one for, like 3 years.
