    I wasn't commenting on your living space... it's just shoes. I don't understand this new hipster trend of wearing the clothing and shoes of crack addicts, and paying a lot for it.

    Just wear them a lot, and they'll get better.


    Crack addicts, just like everyone else, have quite diverse ways of dressing, you watch too many movies and wander around too little my friend.

    This is the truth. I work for an HIV/AIDS prevention non profit and do outreach to a lot of homeless drug users, and man do some of them have style. Badass style, even if it is on a budget!

    Anyway, those 5eps look great, they are gonna be perfect. I have relatively big feet too (12), but I got used to how my feet look in slimmer opening jeans. I used to just wear flairs, haha.

    Thanks everyone!! I was a bit self concious (TBTH) cuz these are the slimmest fitting jeans I own to date.

    As for shoes - I have a pair of all black OT Mexico 66's that I have yet to take out the box. I'm sure the more athletic look of the Tigers will also help to offset the "Bobo-the-clown-look".

    Hopefully Tigers will make me look a lil less crackheadish as well. [​IMG]

    I don't understand why people pay $400 to look poor.

    That's hilarious and true. I think that he means that you guys spend A LOT of money on clothes that simply dosen't look expensive. Example, Jap repos that look like thai fakes. You can rave about the quality all day but does anybody really need jeans that last 2 lifetimes when you are never going to wear it after 6 months? They fade and now look vintage, so you put it in the back of the closet and only use it to clean the house. $400 jeans...just to clean the house[​IMG] . Not to mention some simply don't fit as good as many "inferior" jeans. And since there's a fear of logos and designs or anything that looks a little out there, most of the clothes are just plain.

    Plain jeans + plain shirt + chuck taylors = BORING...

    ANYways...that's what i notice in NYC...bitch away. Prove me wrong [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What I look for in a pair of jeans:

    1)I like to wear slim to tight jeans, cheap jeans usually fit very bad (see Cheap Monday) for various construction reasons. In other words I enjoy the look of these expensive brands you dismiss. There are some exceptions to that rule, I quite enjoy wearing my Levi 514 black jeans and they cost me something like $50 (thanks getsmart).

    2)Look of the fabric; higher quality fabric usually look better and that's an important factor. It also ages and fades beautifully which is important since I don't stop wearing them after 6 month, even though you might think otherwise. As for the cleaning the house part unless you've got a camera at my, or anyone else's place how could you know....

    3)Secret luxury (the part you're criticizing). I like how sometimes I'm the only one knowing the quality of what I'm wearing and some small details, like the ultra comfortable pockets of Dior jeans, make me happy for some reason.

    4)Just like everyone else, accept it or not, I use fashion as a way to send messages about myself, notably as a way to distinguish from the masses and at the same time to note belonging to a particular group. Everyone likes to meet another person who's like "cool selvedge jeans man, you've got a nice fade going on". And you then answer "hey that's a cloak hoodie, I love that brand" and you start raving about what kind of clothing you like and what it means to you, normally linked with something like "hey that jacket looks like what Dylan was wearing on that famous photo of him at the factory". Okay that sounded incredibly gay but you get my point.

    5) as for the fear of logos and designs, logos usually suck and design is a whole different, all encompassing animal, but you obviously meant it as "graphics" or something similar and nobody here fears that...

    6)You don't like tight jeans and chucks because of the messages it sends (see #4, think Ramones or whatever) some posters love them for the same reason, diversity is the spice of life.

    47) In short, you're wrong [​IMG]

    Ok the camera phone pics are crappy but you guys get the idea. these are my 5ep on their 3rd wear. [​IMG]

    Seems like a good fit but I can't say much because of the low quality picture...I must say 5EP jeans usually look very good on most wearers..

    Crack addicts, just like everyone else, have quite diverse ways of dressing, you watch too many movies and wander around too little my friend.

    I've seen crackheads from Cape Town, London, Paris, Baltimore, NYC, New Haven, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and quite a few other cities. I've wandered plenty. Those shoes yell crack, to me.

    I still don't understand this phenonemon of paying to look poor.

    I suppose it's meant as an imitation of late seventies-early 80s punk rockers and grunge rockers from 10 years later. The irony of this is, they were broke and that personal style was partly due to not being able to wear nicer stuff.
