    can i just email them for a black pair?

    Yeah, go to the eBay listing and send the guy a message, maybe include your email in it. He'll email you back and you can work out the details in an oh-so-sketchy outside-of-eBay transaction.

    FYI, you can also pick up AllSaints Brandons on sale for < $100 if you want a slightly less blatant DBSS rip-off. lmao said he had trouble with the zipper after only a few wears, but I definitely like my pair thus far.

    My only complaint is that I can only really wear them on weekends and on days that I work from home. They don't really go with the Brooks Brothers OCBD that I'm wearing today. [​IMG]

    Haversack is the worst for that. Seriously loose buttons. I think that they were languidly sewn on a slow machine from 1891.

    Lol dropping knowledge owning one Haversack jacket. My H'sack sportcoat is as well-put-together as they come.

    First pair of Cp's. After seeing how light they are and how good the quality is, I've definitely realized they are worth the money. I'll be picking up more in the future.

    Didn't we just have this discussion when I posted my AS Brandons here earlier? The logo is in exactly one place, located off to the side on a small patch of fabric sewn onto the tongue. You can distinguish that there's a logo if your face is within three feet of the shoes. You can tell that it's the AllSaints logo if you know what the AllSaints logo looks like and your face is within twelve inches of the shoe. Don't get me wrong, given the choice between logo and no logo, I'd skip the logo. I don't think it's anything that should be a deal-breaker, though. edit: My fit pic from earlier:

    [email protected] zipper pendant. I can see the bottle opener thing being reasonably useful for a goth-bro, but it looks like shit.

    ^Yeah, the first thing I do with a UW garment is remove all of the buttons and sew them on properly.

    don't laugh...what is UW?
