This was prob asked a million times, but any reccs for a bag that could double as diaper bag? It has to have pockets i guess, and not weigh a ton. Anyone? Thanks.
I don't have any experience with needing to carry a diaper bag, so can't really speak from experience. But Pete and Jesse are fathers and they recommended the bags posted above.

Alex Grant, who used to maintain a menswear blog, has also said he uses a helmet bag as a "dad bag." I don't know if this also means using it to carry diapers, but maybe something to consider. You can find cheap versions of this online or at milsurp stores for about $20 to $40. Upscale Japanese versions are also available from brands like Porter. From what I can tell, the difference is mostly in the material. The cheap version is a bit stiff and utilitarian, while the upscale version is made from a softer fabric.

Any reccs for boxy sweatshirts / hoodies I can pickup on Yahoo Auctions Jp for cheap? Real Mccoys look nice, but sort of wanted something more boxy fitting.

Camber is boxy, thick, and made in the USA. Rumoredly, the private label producer for Bape offshoot Very Ape, Futura stuff, and some Engineered Garments Workaday (the stuff made in the USA). Available on Rakuten, eBay, and Etsy if you search Camber. Also available at Beige Habilleur in France, All USA Clothing, and All Seasons Uniform. Dave's New York also carries Camber, but they're completely closed right now because of the pandemic. I don't know if the other stores are shipping.

It's a boxy fit like this. Over at All USA Clothing, they're about $75, but they normally take a while to ship, even when there's not a pandemic.

Was told this might be a good place to ask...
Looking to get a pair of black side zips/Chelsea’s (horse butt preferred) with a high/Cuban heel that will go with lemaire/dries/de bonne facture/Stephan Schneider style. I like the look of some of the Margielas and our legacy boots but they are all cemented soles, and I want a stitched sole.

I don’t want any Celine or Saint Laurent or anything artisanal like ccp.

Our legacy and margiela examples:

From the first are black stitched:

I'd get those Margiela boots if you can find them in your size, recent experience being that even if glued the quality is very high.

Ranch Road's silhouette isn't as aggressive, but it's an elevated heel and features a stitched on sole.
