    I'm just under a 33 true waist and I got Large kolordidas shorts. Probably could go down to medium, but am fine in a large if I cinch the drawstrings. I'd say I'm probably between sizes.

    I generally wear Birkenstocks inside the house, which is the only time I ever wear Birkenstocks. Lots of arch support.


    Looks like they did a fantastic job. Anyway, not sure I wanna get a bag that's already $500 and needs another $200 worth of work (I assume it would cost something to get the strap modified so it doesn't dangle) even if the bag itself is pretty rad.

    I just ordered some Chacos for that purpose, but I also get cold feet really easily (and not just around women) so I want a more cozy option too.

    The La Portegna espadrilles look kind of sweet.

    Or, better yet, he could just job to Bottega and they'd probably send him one for free. Thought he'd have to deal with his precious impugned integrity, which as we all know is a suckers game.


    I didn't know this was a thing.


    As somebody who participated marginally in Track and Field during the early 90's, I respectfully disagree.

    As someone who was busy disrespectfully smoking drugs in the 90s..... I would run in them today. Cropped leggings are surprisingly good for distance running at least, they save heat but keep you cool.

    Why don't you contact someone on Etsy and have one replicated. Or are you just chasing the Bottega name?

    It's simple and discreet key fob. Nothing complicated. Yes maybe it will take you more time to sort out the specifics, which you probably don't have a lot of seeing how you're running this place.

    Just my two cents.

    1) I hate replicas. Either get the original thing, or just... don't
    2) I would rather not deal with the inconvenience of finding someone who can do the work. One thing that a company like Bottega does extremely well is the details, like the finish on the edges of the leather braids, etc... that, and a lot of the colors are proprietary, so you'd spend a ton of time finding the right leather, in the right grade, etc...
    3) I might consider custom job for something that is really dear, but I mean, even in North America, the price is $220, which, while super high for a stupuid key ring, is not, in absolute terms, particularly high. Honestly, if I could get a guidi grey ring in the same shape. without the woven leather, I'd be good with that too, but I don't even know who on etsy would have that leather in stock.

    The things I like about this:
    1) the rectangular shape, which seems actually relatively uncommon.
    2) The layers of tiered leather.
    3) The trademark woven leather inset, which makes the thing a bit more interesting=
    4) The color of the leather, which is this dove grey that is fairly hard to replicate, and that is very likely proprietary.
    5) The fact that the leather that actually attaches to the ring is fairly wide. I can't stand those key rings that have a really thin attachments to the ring.

    There are a lot of key rings, but a lot of them look a lot more rustic than I would like.
