Visvim Lama Sandals - Really pleased to get a pair in my size, complete with the box and in one of better iterations IMO.



Real McCoy's Hangers and Anonymous Ism hemp socks.



Just ordered another 6 hangers. :D The quality of the socks is great as usual, and really interesting colours.

@kjb how did you size the denim? Looks like a perfect pair for spring/summee
i took my actual waist size, so these are a size 34. they were a bit snug in the waist and hips at first but being washed, stretched pretty easily even within the first hour of wear. i like them, they seem a touch darker in person than shown on the DR site (but it's a very grey day here so maybe they'll brighten up in full sunlight) but the cut and weight is very nice.

Those Studio jeans look like the perfect wash! Accuse my ignorance, but what is the DR site?

those aren't doc martin's?
Nope, Solovair. A bit better than Docs. Made in UK, better leather (but still not great),Goodyear welted, and still have the wood shanks that Docs removed when they outsourced years ago.

edit: I can tell the difference in leather immediately. These will take a bit longer to break in than I'm used to

To make it totally clear - this is the factory that used to make DMs back in the day, before the company went global, forgot its roots and quality control, and outsourced everything overseas. DMs were once "Doctor Martens by Solovair."
