    The heel etching is pretty badass in person, the skull print boots would be my choice over the ship ones though (still purty)

    Those boots are beautiful to look at, but I'd never wear them.

    What attracted you to that version over your original one, zissou? I think the denim is far more interesting on the older one that you're selling.
    I'm liking the extra flap pockets, leather details, and the midnight denim (fading looks stunning on the MF site). I am planning on adding a button-in liner to it so I can get more three-season use out of it. I was getting tired of the Texas tux, to be honest. But, if no one buys it, I'll just keep both [​IMG]

    I like the ship detail in particular. I never own any McQueen. Since he's dead and this is the last season of his own design. So I asked myself, why don't get one? Hmm...

    You should have picked one of his iconic pieces instead.

    I don't mind the heel etching. I actually like it. Not sure about the design on the toe box though. Need to see it in person to judge.

    They are all sold out lol. But I know some iconic pieces will last forever like the skull scarf, can definitely get one later.

    I feel that some of Mcqueen's women pieces are amazing. Can't say that about his menswear though.

    yes, with thick sox.

    I'm glad they fit you. They're amazing in person, the footwear was definitely one of the highpoints of ss10, some of the best he's done for a long time I think. I thought I'd have to size down on these, but I guess I could go with a 4 then, once I locate a pair.

    I agree. McQueen's design for women are incredibly amazing. I do appreciate their high heels (not the ugly one from runway). His menswear from runway are tooooo dramatic. Not daily wear for me. [​IMG]

    Well...he was always known more for his womenswear than his menswear...
