    Had to exchange the white APCs since it was too big, got this grey Jil jeans instead.
    How do the Jil jeans fit? I have no experience with Jil jeans but would be interested in a pair in that color if fit is right. I am hoping they are something like a APC petit standard cut - slim thigh and leg, tapered hem, longish inseam. If they are straight leg no interest.

    I got a 43.5 and it fit snug, I usually wear a 41.5-42. Everything fits fine though (length and width) but the toes leather is thicker so it kind of pushes down on the toes which make it snug. Should be good after the break in period.

    Yeah I got size 42 and its snug but not uncomfortable. Break in will definitely loosen up and then it'll be ideal. I also have a pair of size 43 ankle boots that fit perfect without break in. Somewhat worried how they'll fit post break in.... Latest acquisition is a pair of donkey derbies at size 43.5 which the seller told me will fit me though I might need to insole. I'm somewhat skeptical, but the price was good and donkey derbies were on my list. Last thing I need are some donkey backzips and derbies in soft horse and I think I'm covered on the black colored guidi front anyways.

    Been eye-ing a pair of MA+ derbys myself, almost pulled the trigger when Sydney had that buy one get one 50% off deal.

    Sneakers are guidis look good, but I think you should buy dress shoes from dress shoe makers, you could easily afford JL or EG. Those Diors and Jills just look blobby as fuck.

    Thanks for the advice but I do not really need JL or EG at this point, I just need something more fun and wearable. The Jil has a bulbous toe but not bulbous where it looks overly huge like last seasons, just right for more casual wears like jeans and chinos. The Diors are more sleek, it'll be worn with suits. I just like the shape on these and the sizing is just right. With JL and EG, it'll be a start of whole new sizing research, lasts, silhouette, etc...


    How do the Jil jeans fit? I have no experience with Jil jeans but would be interested in a pair in that color if fit is right. I am hoping they are something like a APC petit standard cut - slim thigh and leg, tapered hem, longish inseam. If they are straight leg no interest.

    The Jil are more slim than APCs PS. I got a 28 in APC PS but a 30 in Jil is slimmer but not painted on tight. It has a shorter inseam than APC, I think around 32"-33" and it does taper to the leg opening, not straight leg at all.


    And thanks for all the comments everyone.

    I know The Archive does them. I'm sure Atelier does it as well.. I think Arthur at The Archive mentioned its a 2 month turn around time [​IMG] Call em up and ask!

    Thanks [​IMG] I need to learn how to use my Lumix point and click because I'm pretty sure I could do better even without a DSLR, but I have to say the Nexus 1 camera phone has really impressed the fuck out of me for ease of use. I love this phone... do not regret frying my Nexus S after switching to it for a week and hot tubbing with it, do regret dropping a weight on my AT&T Nexus 1 which shattered the screen which necessitated the "upgrade" to Nexus S.

    [​IMG] are they oxblood? if so, please die lol. Also, this special order probably would cost me more than 1k, dunno if I wanna pass that threshold.
