    What were you doing in the 80's?

    You could use zippers instead of lacing. Not that I have anything against chelsea boots. Some high end models use thin leather panels to hide the elastic. That looks a little busy to me though.

    I tend to think that zippers would look busier than leather panels. I suppose the simple fact is that there are only so many ways to make minimalist boots and elastic is one of the most minimalist available.

    I like the classic design. The only problem with the elastic is that, over time, it can develop this wavy, lettuce-leaf edge. I've heard you can get it replaced though.

    Anyone know where I can find an Adidas sweatshirt like this just for men? Haven't been able to find any place with them in stock.

    Essentially, you are looking for the opposite of what I like to wear - high tension, dense weave, at least 16 ounces. However, the most comfortable LHT denim I've worn has been from Studio D'Artisan, which uses a low tension for nearly all of their denim. They have a natural straight leg model that is fairly relaxed and comfortable as well. The RHT version is the 101, but I'm not sure what the code for the LHT twill version is. With the low yet, it's worth going through Rakuten. iirc, the jeans fit tts or even a bit smaller, so I would size up 1 if you are looking for comfort throughout.

    Why is it that Japanese stores never buy bigger than size S, but when they do it's the first size to sell out?

    There are SF females around?


    Thanks I checked the okinawa but looks like their LHT is a little on the old school a little baggy side.


    Does anybody know if EG Bedford measurements stay the same every season?

    I like Myles, even though the inside is nylon, not fleecy.

    I've always wondered about the Cold Cave guy and his affinity for Atelier brands. Like, is the band big enough to sustain his jawnz purchases? Maybe he landed a big commercial spot or something.
