    I think the chukkas are pretty boring and seeming incongruent with what you are going for next in your style. I think the dying could be pretty cool, especially if it ends up splotchy and you get some awesome texture/colouring. Just do it!

    kelvin,
    absolutely right. not sure what i was expecting. I just hoped $500 sneakers looked objectively awesome, no matter what they were paired with. i had never seen them in the wild before. was not the case.
    He was also a filthy looking hipster, which didn't help matters.


    That's bc mids are garbage.

    NN has mentioned the stitches a few times, I don't cut them bc they're dope and doing so is dumb.

    I wonder when we're going to stop hearing about aeglus krane jacket.

    saw a dude on the subway today kitted out in diors and MMM Gat Mids. He looked completely unremarkable and boring.

    lol sounds like this could be me.....


    except for the obvious fact that I don't subway.

    How is Rag & Bone quality these days? Downhill slide, I assume?
    Considering they don't just make t-shirts, it depends on the type of garment you're talking about. In general, their collection is pretty well-made but I think it's their outerwear where they really shine.

    I hate losing auctions. That's what you get when you lowball.

    Word. I lost the bid on this big down coat with fur hood I was going to use as my cold weather arctic gear. That one hurts more than most since I know it'll affect me more than just in steeze.

    "Suspect?" What the hell are you talking about? Once Theory bought them they were able to move just about everything in-house. Keep in mind, prior to '07 their main focus was denim. Since then, they've done collabs with Grenson, Loro Piana, Martin Greenfield, etc.
