^you're used to raw denim, non raw doesn't[always] work that way.
Asobu's pants likely have a leg opening of > 7"
Good point. Those don't look particularly pre-distressed, but there's probably not much reason for them to have a bunch of starch in them. I'd still expect 15 - 16 oz. denim to have a little initial stiffness, but maybe that's not the case.
a) you meant < 7", not > 7", if you were trying to comment on the whole "narrow hem --> better stacking" idea, and b) I think we were all pretty clearly talking about denim, which, unless my eyes or monitor are failing me, is not the fabric used to make asobu's pants.
How do you see the FW11 shows?
I stack on 8's
When you say "smaller the hem the better the stacking", are you referring to the width of the leg opening? I only ask because when I hear the word hem I typically think of the pant leg length.
yeah that's what he meant, I know it's confusing but that's how it's often referred to, that or 'leg opening'.
and notwithit, you're right asobu's pants are not denim, but the leg opening is certainly >7"...I would wager somewhere around 9.5 or 10
Found out where margiela stole the Incognito design from:
^love goofy movie
Not sure if I'm just getting caught up in the hype machine, but these BoO brogues are so sick. I'm getting sweaty palms mang
Wow, those *are* sick. Here I thought my next brogues were going to be some alden ravello boots...
Anyone have experience with BoO shoes in terms of quality / fit?
They had a similar oxford last season. They ran a full size too big and were only in size 9-12, so really they only fit a 10-13. I do not think they were worth the price, though they looked nice enough. I'd much rather buy something from Alden, maybe even two pairs for that price.
BoO is great with some pieces - I like/sometimes love their shirting/oxfords/button ups. They make great suits through Martin Greenfield. Their polo's are my favorite polos around. All of these items, in my mind, justify the price point. (Even though some of their shirts have serious button issues). Then they sell things like sweats and hoodies that are of shit quality compared to Japanese brands or even Wings + Horns, leather jackets that aren't nearly worth the price compared to the competition, and shoes like this that look great but are competing with some seriously great shoemakers at an extremely high price point. They get away with it because of the designer brand name, but seriously, who's going to drop 200 on some Sperry/BoO when they can pick up Quoddy for $50 extra?
IMO not worth it - but if you have the money they look pretty nice.
Need a uniqlo proxy.
These are from A/W 11 so you'll have no problem finding a pair soon, unless you're in Tokyo/Paris/London in which case you could buy them now. Atelier will carry these, this is actually their picture. Looks like will be several excellent cuts coming out this winter, this pair is by far the widest and the rest will be more tapered.
