    Truly a random question, but does anybody here own either the Cone or Stan trousers from Acne? Thoughts on either or both?

    How fast does the sole of Y-3 boosts wear down?

    And if in theory I wanted a "beater" MA-1, the slimmer fashion-y kind not the actual military round ones, what brands make good ones? I recall Sandro was a possibility?

    Ssense had Lad a while back, but no longer it seems. Prices weren't great - proxying is probably your best bet.

    Anyone know if natural leather ages very differently if you don't do things to hasten the process (e.g. leaving it out in the sun, hitting it with conditioner, etc)? I imagine the process is a lot slower, but are the results very different in say, five years or whatever?

    ime, the ageing is much less uniform between people, and even on different parts of the shoe (at least, that's what I have). Sorta the difference between denim fades and an enzyme wash.

    If you keep it out of the light and don't handle it leather doesn't change much. It can dry a little but that's all.

    Hm, maybe my question was a bit unclear. What I mean is, does letting natural leather age on it's own -- with regular use -- result in a different patina than doing the kind of tricks people use to hasten the process? Stuff like leaving it out in the sun to bake for a few days, hitting it with conditioner, etc. I know this stuff kind of ages differently from person to person, but I'm wondering if the results might be different assuming it's the same person, same product, etc. Maybe the patina would be less uniform without those tricks?

    Recently bought this eyewear case and I'm tempted to darken it with conditioner, like I've done with belts, but also wondering if I should just let it age on its own for the next five years.
