I like the chairPartly related to fashion because I came across Green River Project as set design for Bode lookbooks which I thought was cool for interior inspiration. But now they seem to just be making stuff out of twigs, OK you've black lacquered it for minimalism but otherwise its like something you'd bring back for your parents off a school outdoors camping trip.
This a salty gripe I have with art and creative worlds, its like as long as you live in New York, or London, or LA, and have friends in the right places, in galleries or whatever, you can throw up any old shit and call it design. Like what in the hell is this twig cupboard handles
I think Clarks are great, but you can also check out Astorflex and J. Crew's suede desert boots. I have the latter and like them.I want to replace an old pair of Clarks desert boots that I bring to, well, the desert, bush or similar places. They've lasted me a long time so maybe I'm an outlier (no idea) but I was satisfied with the construction/durability etc, still are there any alternatives I should be looking at? Mine are suede wit crepe soles and I'd like to keep those caracteristics, don't like leather versions.
Clarks are probably fine for what your after, but I've always been a fan of Tricker's Monty chukka. Chunkier sole + welt if you care for that kind of thing.I want to replace an old pair of Clarks desert boots that I bring to, well, the desert, bush or similar places.

I had a black metal case Seiko digital that was very close, sold to a friend who was enamored with it as I didn't wear it as much as my Casio Protreks. Your best best is looking at 80's Seikos on Y!JP, rarely you can find a Silver Wave or similar with a black metal bracelet and case. Should be under $200.speaking of watches, anyone can recommend anything similar to the "bladerunner watch", Microma PVD?
I like it both for style and nerd appeal, but not enough to look for a vintage one
Less a thought than a question: does anyone know of any vintage/classic looking sneakers/everyday shoes with a soft, relatively thick sole +/- some arch support.
I've developed some plantar fasciitis because of my flat feet and lots of sports, and have been forced to wear running shoes, all of which don't fit with my style at all (something between all black archive and heritage workwear).
Any suggestions would be amazing, please help me not have to wear my awful Brooks running shoes anymore.
I had plantar fasciitis and Birkenstocks helped. In addition to switching the whole insole, as someone recommended, you could add these arch supports:A bit late to reply, but I'm in a similar boat except I can't wear zero-drop shoes (sorry, Chucks). I've settled on New Balance 574 that even come in wide to suit my wider feet. Now, I really look like a hipster dad.
