Nice. I’m into those derby’s, thoughts? Did you pay retail?
Nah, I bought them secondhand
-They look cool but they fit kind of weird, theyre long but slightly narrow, not enough to necessitate going up a size (or in CP's case, going with your usual TTS), but I can't wear them with any socks that arent super thin
-They pair really well with the Carbons and the Meguro cast 2s I have, and the Wings + Horns Toyko Pants too, but they look really awkward with any pants that have more heft to them or a wider hem. The creeper style crepe sole makes them less formal but the shine helps if you do want to be more formal, I've worn them casually and with a suit and they always worked
- The crepe sole looks sick but gets dirty fast and really warped when you drive in them or step on anything. I stood on a washer or something last summer and theres still an indent from it
- They crease like crazy

tl;dr: love them for what they are and what I paid (like 150 or something), would be stricken with horror the second I saw the creases and the sole started to rub off if I paid retail

Thanks. They are pretty taxed and I could see them working well and also not working well with certain fits. Appreciate it

I like mine, they do crease a lot. The crepe sole is dark so they don’t discolor as much as the crepe soles on the tan CP Chelsea’s and such. They were initially pretty uncomfortable, but after a few wears they are great. I would also recommend not paying retail on them. They work well for that semi dressed up look. It’s a little “flair” to a rather drab outfit. CP does make derbies on an all black crepe sole with black mid sole and derbies on a stacked leather heel.

What is the best way to wash/dry Escobar’s and ebisu to prevent the pants from losing their elasticity? I have Nike tech fleece joggers that became loose in the thigh and butt area after some washes and I’d like to prevent that on my JE

Only way is cold wash, hang dry to keep them in top shape. You can dry to tighten them back up, but it won’t last.

I got those Sail FOG Raids and sold...i want the blacks for sure.



Just got some T's from them thanks to this forum. SUPER soft. Waiting to see how they hold up in the wash... but impressed so far.
You didn't like the bone raids?
