    Four...this pair, another pair of Butteros, Lucchese, and this pair again. The first pair I picked up from Barney’s was very brown and this pair from FarFetch is more tan, especially when I compared both in hand with the Lucchese. FWIW I also ended up with a great bargain including expedited shipping in the end ☺️. Lucked out but I’d also say being patient paid off, which really is something not preached enough here though it’s in the back of all our minds.

    @Coldsnap Levi's 522's, long retired from their offering...Your ideal jean. And, they came in various inseams. I picked up two of the same pairs and rotate between them everyday pretty much. Probably one of the best purchases as well or most used article of clothing. They taper quite a bit though and now I am on the hunt for a pair that is between 19cm to 20cm. OrSlow 107 fits that I believe but going to check out how those new Uniqlo U jeans fit first.

    I assume you tried out the Lucchese Jonah boot, why did you return it? I always wondering about that one.

    Well, hopefully the forth time is the charm.
    I ordered this 3 times last summer and it got cancelled every time. Randomly showed up in my size again a few days ago so I ordered it again

    @bry2000 if you want that Haider bomber let me know before I return it on Monday. Same for anybody else that was interested. I’m returning this and kopping the colour I wantwd.
    This is the colour I received:

    Man it sucks that the only remaining stores with the gold Haider bomber in a size 48 are selling it for $1.4k and upwards.
