    Is that you? What are the boots and were they massively antiqued from the beginning or have you worn the hell out of them? (Or is that just a weird trick of the light/camera?)



    They aren't desirable, and rather than appeal there is affordability + ubiquity. (Cf. Uggs and Crocs -- ugliness can't stop what's cheap and everywhere.)



    That's awful. And from the two big letters, I bet >90% of people will assume it's a $10 H&M sweatshirt. How do they sell this stuff!? "Are you desperate to spend a bunch of money? Are you even more desperate to look like shit having spent all your money? Buy our ugly piece of shite today for just seven hundred dollars!"



    "Inevitable" because everyone else is doing contrast soles?
    Why is that other guy so mad about them?

    EDIT: on a related note, collaborations in general are getting pretty stupid. To wit:

    Orlebar Brown has been making side-cinch swim trunks for years, so why does it take a collaboration with a brand known for crummy little leather goods to produce a pair in navy and decide it comes with a towel? What happened to "design", innovation, and detailing?

    I like how I can run in them but 270$ does not sound fair for Cole Haan quality

    Fuck. Picked up two ervell oxfords from two different tailors. One was taken in from the sides and now is about a size and a half too small. The other was darted, and has few discernible differences other than a flared, skirt-like ass-cover. Also dropped off a vintage blazer, and while she did a great job on the body, she forgot to let the sleeves out.

    Sigh.
