    Not really Vans-ish, but I've been kind of intrigued by Billy Reid's Dayton loafer. I think it qualifies as a suede slip-on? Kind of expensive though.

    Last week I had a large package with multiple items delivered to someone I had never heard of.
    I was updating DHL's tracking page and saw that it had been delivered to someone whose name I had never seen before.

    Almost panicked first and the customer service was of no help, but after talking to some people I went and checked with the company next door. Just by chance there was this guy in their lobby at that moment that happened to know the person the package had been delivered to. Haven't felt that relieved in a long time. Almost hugged the guy from the lobby.

    Those are cool. I've considered guidi suede slip ons before, but I don't think any of them would necessarily fit how I dress.

    @notwithit , I'm kind of trying to avoid another pair of vans - I just seem to shred them too quickly.

    Tried on flyknit prestos, nmd's and tubulars today. prestos felt the best material-wise, but didn't like the wide toebox. nmd's had the best silhouette but the materials looked cheap and they looked pretty meh from a top view. tubulars just felt bulky in all the wrong ways, and again materials felt and looked cheap. So I guess the RFT here is now I have unrealistic footwear expectations thanks to styleforum....?

    I haven't seen this problem with my suede CastaƱers but the canvas loses its dye instantly if wet.

    Speaking of sneakers has anyone here had experience with Spalwarts? The local CDG is having a sale and there are some SpalwartxCDGShirt marathon runners, i really like the sole on them but the uppers looked pretty flimsy from my try-on.

    I have a pair. The uppers are kind of flimsy, and I don't like how you can feel one of the interior seams with your toes, but I generally like the style.

    They've held up pretty well for me after a season, but I'm also not terribly hard on my clothes.

    Any recommendations for dining/shopping in downtown LA? I'll be checking out both MOCAs tomorrow and am looking for some suggestions. I'm being dropped off by a friend so won't have a car while I'm there, so places within walking distance would be preferable.

    Just thought of another one. Along with the MMM suggestion above, Christian Kimber has suede slip-on (although I don't know if they're in the color you want). Kind of on the pricey side, but I've seen him do sales. Plus AUD to USD rate is pretty good.

    The Geffen MoCA is right in little Tokyo, lots of great places to eat there. Hama Sushi? Sushi Gen? Definitely ask in the LA thread.

    @LA Guy refused delivery? Also why are there so many codes in your posts?
    Around here a durum is called "dressing in sleeve", which would a baguette a dressing on sleeve.
