    Nice! I have been eying getting some like those myself. What kind of leather and color is that?
    They have been described as "blackish brown" by two sellers so I'll go with that, haha. And they're cordovan I think?

    I've been sorely tempted for a month or two, so when it dropped in price I couldn't resist (even if it will probably barely see the light of day until the Autumn).
    Nice. Bleu de Paname? I think I saw it on decent sale lately.

    I ordered westfields in suede. Let me know if you need a referral son.

    Nice. Trying to decide between those or the chocolate hallams. PM your referral

    There's nothing margiela about those, don't think you would cop if it weren't for the name.

    I prefer without toe caps but they def have the MMM boot shape. I think I'll order some new short black boots soon, right now I'm thinking JM Weston, MMM or Carmina, not sure yet.

    I could have sold you mine. I wore it once or twice in the fall/winter so I'm going to sell it

    I think you acquired several BdP pieces, what's your take now that you have had the time to wear them over a few months?

    That's the only one I have. It's nicely made but overall feels a little too "soft" for this particular style I think. I think the cut lends itself to a slightly more rigid outer layer or maybe something a bit more weatherproof. A little "neither here nor there" - probably why I haven't really worn it much.

    The short black side-zip boots from MMM this season look good, I may get them.

    Damn - your's is probably the same size. I didn't even realise you had one.

    Construction seems good, and I was after a cold weather jacket. With three waxed Barbours and the Cameraman I wasn't really in need of a true waterproof coat - just something for cooler days. Basically I fell for the colour, pockets and buttons [​IMG]

    Here is a picture of the spring blazer from Cloak I just got. The pants I've already posted so the tag suffices. I found this blazer while wandering around the city today. You can see the tag above. Spring 04. [​IMG]

    Fuuuuu, that's nice. Looks like the perfect spring/summer blazer. Did you find that in a vintage shop?
