    For whatever reason, IDGAF about that one. Thanks for the consideration, tho.


    Not crazy about the micro-heel on what otherwise looks like a sneaker sole.

    I was gonna pick up a pair of these to wear with an off-white leisure suit, but I didn't realize how light the 'navy' is. I guess i'm looking for more of a dark navy.

    I like those YMCs. And at $150 US they don't have to last that long.

    I scored a pair of these from End back in 2011 and I swear they still have a couple of years left in them after some serious use. Hoping they honor the US or UK market with another drop sometime soon.

    Went to a mall and was pleasantly surprised by the trend of less branding from some of the brands I liked but just could not wear due to excessive logo like G Star and A&F :embar: .

    wow, so I am never getting rid of my beard again.

    cross-posting this from MC to show what a difference it can make:

    he looks like a boss either way, but the beard puts it way over the top

    Minimalist(?) shoe collection 2014​

    top (L to R): Clarks, vintage, Bexley, MMM
    bottom (L to R): Topman, Bexley, Carmina, MMM

    not pictured: LL Bean Boots (packed away), New Balance running/hiking shoes, house slippers

    Still trying to do as much with as little as possible. The pair I'm most unsure about is the Clarks. I may get rid of these soon; the color looked awesome in the product shots but they haven't quite delivered in person, plus I'm not 100% sold on the way these fit or how they feel walking around. Possible replacement would be Alden Dovers in tan suede (which would be a considerable upgrade from the Clarks as well).

    Only other plans would be to find the MMM slipons in my WTB ad and upgrading the black captoes to something English and of higher quality. When the GATs finally wear out (whenever that ends up being), I will probably replace them with either the original white colorway or the blue. Leaning towards the original.

    SVB do you really only have 2 pairs of dress shoes? Doesn't seem like a lot for someone who wears suits to work, but otherwise I fully associate with the minimalism idea

    It's the money aspect. It's not really the hobbyist part that's the problem.

    I will probably pick up some new GATs. I really like the grey. Anyone have a lead on a pair in size 44?

    At a flat warming yesterday, a good friend of mine told me she saw one of my fit pics while she was shopping online for a dress.... I don't know what to make of this.

    That could be it. I was really hoping that no one in the real world would ever catch on to my internet shenanigans

    You didn't ask her how you came up in her search?

    Yeah there was some people around. It's irrational, but the thought of people I know going through my profile, posts and pics horrifies me.
