    Real nice pickup on the Guidis, the back zips are my fav model. Where'd you kop them from?

    Man why are you so bitter towards me? I often get the impression you're some envious poor student hailing from his dorm room.

    I bought the sneakers specifically to wear with with my junhashimoto sweatpants. Previously I tried styling the sweatpants with Converse, CP, and GATs. Yet all of these pairings felt wrong to me, like two different styles being forced together: Converse looks cheap when paired with nice fabrics, CP is too austere and non-sporty, and GATs are too European looking. But the junhashimoto sneakers mesh perfectly. Similarly Julius sneakers pair better with Julius pants than do GATs, yet Julius sneakers are not good all purpose sneakers for pairing with most other styles.

    My current kick is to wear outfits that are comprised entirely of pieces from the same designer, worrying less about how aweseome each individual piece is and more about the overall look. This is why I've bought so much stuff from wjk and junhashimoto recently. This technique can actually work really well.

    The soles on the junashimotos are nearly identical to the soles used on many CP models!

    without a doubt it can work well as that is of course part of the intent. but this lacks in creativity and requires little though aside from finding appropriate labels in your closet. a bit too formulaic, which confirms my suspicions that you are at least part robot. a more exciting challenge is to play with shapes, fabrics, and colors in producing an outfit.

    also, can we get a fit pic standing in the bath tub again ? those sneakers, placed on the ledge, took me down memory lane...

    That Missoni Target jumpoff looks like something my grandma would like.

    Im getting real tired of those bs designer x discount store collabos. Not only does every bitch in the world post on their facebook about it, they always sell out and instantly show up on ebay. Newsflash, none of you would buy this garbage if it didn't have the designer name behind it.
