    junya x laboreur = scott.m wannabe starter kit

    eh. It's a very plain, canvas chore coat with a corduroy collar. It hardly has a trace of the typical Junya flare you see with scott.m's outerwear.



    kwoyeu, thanks for the info on foreign transaction fees.

    Nikes are the smallest fitting shoes I own. I wear them 2 full sizes above all stars.

    I'm a 12 on a brannock, 11.5 in Chucks, and a 13 in any Nikes I've worn.

    I'm not a huge fan of the swoosh, but as someone (I'm pretty sure it was fuuma) said, the swoosh at least blends into the design/contours of the shoe. The N on New Balances practically step off the side of the shoe and spit in your face with how jarringly incongruous they are. Also, most of them just look like running shoes, whereas the Nike Blazers at least look like casual sneakers.

    Christ it's easy to sell Styleforum things. Just one picture, not even a full length shot and BAM 10 people kop.
    If you're talking about the nikes, most ebay sellers have 4-5 images? [​IMG]

    Saw the jacket a George Greene earlier today, fell in love for a minute, and then died a little inside when I saw the price. [​IMG]

    Just bought a pair of APC NS in black (50% off because i traded in my old ones). What shoes go well with black denim? (Suede blazers in black and white are looking pretty appealing actually...)

    Why don't you like black blazers? I think they're just as versatile, if not more.

    They're not the recommended choice for the MC/trad set, but for minimalist ish, they're pretty much a staple.

    Wait I thought GN was talking about Nike Blazers, i.e. sneakers.

    Not hard to match stuff with black jeans hoss, black boots or black oxfords (not too sleek or polished though) or black sneakers or colored sneakers in good colors like a good plum or slate blue.

    Black blazers as in jackets are pretty slick but I'm leery of too much black suiting, reminds me of those Ferragamo or Boss ads with nonstop tans and jawlines.
