    These are both gorgeous, I need one or the other. Robin, since you have both, which would you go for? Thanks.
    I would say it depends on what you normally wear.

    The boots are very casual, being on the barrie last with commando soles. They're perfect for denim.

    The blucher wingtips are a bit more formal, and will only be for nicer trousers, and maybe suits.

    some of the oc stuff is nice, but the long-term quality has been pretty sub-par in my experience. i wanted to try the blue oxfords but lo and behold, no size 46.


    Seriously. That's more expensive than the nicer brands that they sell instore. You figured they should make it corpus/bson type prices. Those are more expensive than NDG or the various swedish labels that all look same. Fucking annoying when i wanna buy something of their's. The only OC item i own are the shoes and those aren't worth retail quality/construction wise. Seems like h&m/uniqlo type quality but better cut/styled

    Those OC shoes fit really true to size. If you're a 46 in CP you might even need a 47 (which i doubt exist) in OC.

    What is converse one?
    Where you can "design your own" Converse shoes. Go to http://www.converse.com/#CATEGORYC1 and click on the DESIGN YOUR OWN tab on the SHOP wheel.

    I went out to go pickup some booze for the evening, and instead ended up with another pair of shoes. [​IMG]

    Just got my Acne cardigan in the mail. Really nice deep navy blue color in a soft merino wool. Pretty good fit too. Bought back this APC tshirt i sold to brett a year ago too. Kinda funny how that worked out. More stuff too, but it hasn't come yet. Might take a group pic when it does. Selling more old stuff when i get some time.

    So I just placed a special order for my size in these Jil Sander "handmade" shoes in anthracite/grey leather. They quoted 10 weeks from the buying office; but, the girl said that since it is summer and we're dealing with Italians it may be up to 12.
