    mr porter is now open for business

    they have some ...interesting merchandising in some cases

    reminds me of that annoying debate from last week about bad brand combinations


    Pretty good brand selection

    hope my ervell jacket sells for more than $50. If not I guess some got a bad ass deal. There's still an hour left so I guess well see.

    That site's design is great. The sizing information is particularly useful-- no measurements but they're very specific about what size the model wears and why

    It looks pretty well-curated, for the most part. Kind of odd to see that they'll be stocking Rick Owens mainline and DRKSHDW, though, neither of which seem to fit with the aesthetic they're working toward. For the most part it looks pretty good, I think.

    ^It seems like they are trying to maximize profit/appeal to hype rather than a particular aesthetic. Online stock seems pretty slim so far. By the time my Universal Works insulated vest and wool knit arrive from the UK, it will be spring! [​IMG]

    I would do Kelly green most likely, and it's a good point, I could do suede too I'm just trying to move away from it. Any suggestions will be taken will from you, tween.
    I've been digging around a bit, trying to find a picture of those boots (tricker's grasmere?) in that leather but with no luck. The more I think about it thought I bet they will look pretty cool, especially with the kelly green pull (my first choice for sure), and I totally understand wanting something besides suede I'm just a sucker for the pebbled leather though, probably because I don't own any boots with it. Now i'm questioning whether or not I need to order up this exact pair but with a double-leather sole instead. I'm thinking those + some black washed acnes I have cuffed up and a blue TB oxford untucked could be pretty awesome for the spring

    Blue oxford with all black always seems off to me, white would be sliiiiick. I just cannot get into Pebble Leather, I've tried but something about that shade looks so appealing to me. Truthfully I'd have them in a burnt reddish brown suede if they had that option, but unfortunately don't. Damn shame man.

    Word, though lately I haven't spent much on food, mostly drinking and clothing.

    yeah I get what you're saying, I just have this vision in my head and it involves this old tb oxford that i've machine washed and dried like a hundred times

    I need to lay low on my boot game for a while though so we'll see what the future brings

    I think you should go for those trickers though, they'll look great when done and a commando sole sounds awesome for stomping around in since you don't seem to be too into those Diemmes
