    I was semi kidding. I've always love FBT's as well. Enjoy and please post up your thoughts on them once you receive them.

    in regards to the fbt, the model is also not kudo it is kudu, which is a type of leather. hopefully you sized correctly as this season fits a little bit differently than previous. they are a nice shoe, although i wear my pair much less than i had anticipated- mostly because I have shamans which are fairly delicate:

    Haha I know Kudu is a type of leather I could put that together. I messaged a lot of different Japan shops and get the response of, I don't know 80% of the time, other times its TTS. From the other Visvim garments I own Japanese stocklists or resellers must measure different because there not accurate. I knew I would buy a pair sooner or later so in the past I messaged people on ebay or fuk and they usually tell me almost half size big for 2013 models. My foot measurement is 10.75" so I went with a 10.5. I sure as hell doubt ill wear socks with them since I know the leather will feel amazing, and if there tight the leather will stretch. Shamans are nice but look like crap when the ankle wrap starts to curl and get misshaped.



    Haha Personally not Kanye ...Im not going to lie and say the guy or his designers don't have style some of his outfits are really nice like they should be for how fashion forward or god-like he claims to be. The only reason I know he wears FBTs is because I have GQ in my rss feed.

    ya i know, heard stories about your hood...it cured my stomach ache i had for a few days when nothing else i took helped


    lots of 2013 production is smoking excellent but main two would be hdm epicure 2 and juan lopez seleccion 2, both robustos (which i ordered and will report myself of these 2013s) and you'd do well ordering blindly and getting a good box, consistency is high with these

    i posted a few boxes in the cigar thread that i picked up but depends what you want, epi 2 is good as a relaxing subtle smoke with a smoother profile, jls2 is a richer more straightforward smoke with no dominant notes

    of course i like the brash in your face complex cigars with aging potential in spades like rass and serie d4s so it depends on your palate and objective, those being among the more known ones

    i'll bring the halliburton stocked when i come up north one of these days, need to get a carrying case for the glencairns

    It's fall 2011 @reedobandito you see the same exact pattern on a couple of the shirts and there's a reddish/maroon version of it too.

    Great bourbon for a great price. Try out Four Roses Small Batch if you get a chance. It's usually under $40 if I'm not mistaken. One of these days I'll have tried enough bourbons to move on get a handle on the different scotches out there.

    I blame Teger.

    I've been meaning to grab a Barena blazer for months but couldn't decide on the style, colour and size I wanted/needed. Teger recently posted this pic in the following post which got my even more keen to grab one, but still I just couldn't find the right size (assuming i'm a 50 - we will see).

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/164384/t...0#post_6827619

    I'm a little shorter and smaller than Teger and he bought a 52 and via PM confirmed to me that he thinks he could have bought the 50, but it might have been too short. Seeing as i'm shorter, it should fit well without alterations. Comparatively, Sune, the TBS model pictured below is wearing a 50, the size I bought. However normally I think I am a little bigger than him in the shoulders, so who knows.

    Anyway, after being sold out for weeks a 50 popped up on my favourite site, TBS, so I snapped it up very quickly without hesitating.

    Co-sign this. Four Roses Small Batch is a tremendous bourbon for the price.

    Yea, only other Bourbons I've found comparable in quality at the $25 and under pricetag are Whippersnapper (a very young bourbon, made in Oregon) and Corner Creek, which is pretty bold tasting.

    I've seen lots of good reviews for Four Roses, must admit that I'm probably biased against the brand due to its rather unappealing marketing. The bottle, label and name are none to appealing. But that's pretty silly of me haha


    Alright, guess I should give it a shot

    Woodford Reserve sometimes goes on sale for under $30... if you see it for low $30s or under definitely buy. Buffalo Trace is probably the best bourbon in the $20 range though...

    Also, Angle's Envy and Four Roses Single Barell are good at slightly higher prices...

    I've really enjoyed bulleit's bourbon, and Basil Hayden's is fantastic when I can afford it...
