    i never understood buying tshirts of an expensive brand just to own that brand. they're still just t-shirts...


    re lbikers comment on transition - remember you are just seeing still pictures of people you don't know on the internet. if you saw them wearing something completely different initially and then saw them about face to another style you would also be all like "yeahbuhsaywhaaa?"

    so if like reedo comes in w/ some crazy aitor throupe headjacket suit, and then transitions to safe duffle coats, brogue boots, and apc you'd find it pretty incredulous, too... but i guess that's obvious anyway...

    gnome sane?

    that's kinda why I said it; the people I know who can't afford Balmain but want to rep Balmain only buy their tees.

    I was thinking about tees. Had my eye on one, but it´s like 500 dollars. Though with discount It could be affordable. I already own a couple of d2 tees that were like 250 each, which I love and wear them a lot, so that price doesn´t bother me. But 500 is quite extreme.

    @ Desi. I really prefer sticking to the runway line. I´ve seeing it a lot on Luisa and had a couple of items that got away from me for not buying them when I had the chance.

    i would expect it to be normal durable beater leather. It is a postman shoe after all, no need to expect smooth as the earth exotic leather for some post office getup.

    I have heard that both of them were crap quality :embar: Now I kinda regret not pulling the trigger on CP combat boots..

    As for oxfords, if I wear those the 0F wind will cut off my feet. Considering the WM socks to save my ankles (and Steeze) are necessary, it is safe to say that the postman oxfords cost over $300 :fu: :fu: :fu:

    I´m a bit curious about something, is there a thread about SF approved brands?? The term is mentioned often and I wondered if there was a thread for it.

    Actually, that was written by Blackbird in an e-mail advertisement they recently sent out. And I wouldn't say it means nothing. It tells us what type of language Blackbird thinks will appeal to the target customer for Odyn Vovk.

    Yeah I wouldnt really worry man, they are pretty nice IMO and trying to find another decent, welted shoe for 200 bucks is impossible

    They sorta tap into the creeper zeitgeist ATM as well, which is nice. Thats why I want a pair. If Jil or nice Prada creepers were easy to find I'd kop.

    I want an old 90s goodenough tee with the union jack graphic. Not sure I'd wear it though as right now I'm only wearing collared shirts.
