What’s the sizing on Belgian loafers if I’m a size 10.5 in Jordan 1’s. Should I get a 9.5?
Depends a lot on which maker, and even then, j1 size probably isn't the best reference for something like this. Best to try on a few pairs before committing.

I don't think that takes much imagination. And personally, I'm not much interested in what he thinks here. He can take it to the sinkhole of CE.
Yes, certainly not hard to imagine what someone’s position is when they say something along the likes of “stick to” sports/selling clothes/dribbling/etc.

the bulk of which is consumed in liberal urban centers.
An editorial media view from an online retailer doesn't need to "both sides" any political stance. Every brand is a media brand now, the old rotten fence that halfway existed between editorial and commerce in media, was never even there for brands and they are going to 99% aligns with what their customers view$ are.

A difference of opinion is whether jeans look better with cuffs or not.

Calling out someone’s dog-whistle racism is not a difference of opinion.
Sorry it was me being sarcastic. Of course this isnt a matter of opinion.

Meh, or at least, it's not that hard to predict what the political stance of most clientele groups. Even for "timeless, classic" fashion, the bulk of stores and sales are in the cities, and, from what I can tell from our traffic, and the traffic of several other fashion.style sites with which I am associated, from the liberal bastions like academia and college towns throughout the US. In college towns across the US, universities have become improbable ambassadors of "fashion" or at least higher end clothing. It's a weird phenomenon for sure, as academics have been traditonally known to dress poorly.

That said, I can understand why conservatives would want clothing retailers, clothing brands, musicians, etc... to have publicly neutral stances. Otherwise, if you are really going to "buy with yout poilitics", you might end up with some fairly limited choices. I always watch with fascination eery election cycle to see who the Republicans can finangle to do their music.

I've been watching Flowbee videos after it was revealed that George Clooney uses one. And I have to say .... all the videos ... look ... kind of good? Like, they definitely don't look bad. YouTube is full of what seems to be legit user reviews. And this guy, for example, actually looks kind of good in his Flowbee cut?

Is the Flowbee actually good?
