    How wide are the Silents? I can fit in some size 41 CPs but more often than not they are too narrow so I always size up.

    I only have experience with the Achilles in CP. They are a little tight but not uncomfortable. 42 was too much room for my liking. The silents fit better. I'm trying to find my measuring tape and I'll let you know the exact width.

    ^^^ I know, they gave me a free shipping code too but if the sizing is wrong, i'll be screwed with the return/exchange.
    And I don't see their sizing chart on the shoes like they do on their clothes.

    Thanks Gwyn, much appreciated.

    Pulled the trigger. I'll let you know how it fits Snow, quick free shipping too, should arrive tomorrow or Friday the latest.

    I have a pair of the silent Astilbe hi tops(Was that what they were called?). They're a 42. I wear a 41 in CP and 8 1/2 in rachel comey if that helps you.

    great stuff. and thanks[​IMG]

    You'll have to wait until tonight when I get my plastic measuring tape back for an exact measurement but I used roll-up tape for now and the silents were about 4-5 cms wider than my CPs.

    How's nonnative quality? Thinking about picking up one of their leather bags from the ln-cc sale (thanks, snowman!).

    Yeah, the beige is sold out. [​IMG] I only posted the picture since I couldn't snatch a picture of the back of the black version for some reason. I like the look of it, but am curious regarding the quality of nonnative since I've never handled any of their pieces before. I'd much rather have a full-on leather backpack / daypack, though. I'm not sure I'm too big a fan of the shoulder strap. Any recommendations?

    well i'm far from being able to offer recommendations, but maybe this's a good starting point

    i kinda like this ervell bag but black is really not my thing...

    i'm sure the folks posting over in the manbag thread will have much better suggestions.

    ^^^ Links not working.


    Snow - Those KVAs too bulky for me, I like the Silent ones because they're pretty slim and low profile that I can put my jeans over it and the shoe is high enough that a jean tuck (or semi-tuck) could work as well if I wanted to. Most of my recent sneakers rotation has a thick and padded uppers so all I could do is let it fall above the shoes.

    Lane, got any sizing info on Silent sneakers?
    UK7 = 41.5 and UK8 = 42, for the most part, I'm a 41.5 but I am not really sure how these are sized.


    Just wanted to point out- they're not. Everyone is just used to seeing the completely flush toe on CPs and Rafs. The toe on KVAs is still pretty low pro

    But Snow, I think you really have to dress within a certain range to wear those DBSS

    Thanks, man. I'll take it over there. [​IMG]

    I'm basing it on Snow and Synths fits, they look clunky and huge in their feet but not in a bad way, it looks great in the context with what they are wearing.
