    snow those dbss are probably best with sweats and drop crotch business, but the second velcro strap kind of kills it for me. those kvas are cool, but i dunno about the gum sole. i remember seeing an all black version similar to that from last season or one before that.

    or find the black version of the mmm velcros i got[​IMG]
    just got some more silent and dd stuff for those comfy non work fits

    snowman, don't buy the ro's. you've got your own thing going on, keep after the tech shit and have fun. RO sneaks are having their little moment right now, but you just gotta keep doin' your thang; don't just buy 'em to buy 'em.

    The KVA's are pretty nice, and obviously go with what you got. I'd say if you go DBSS you'll have to find some new pants.

    Dunno man, don't force it.


    uhhh. lo-fukin-l

    i really like 2 and 4, but maybe 4 is too much hype with the vibram sole? number 2 i feel works great all year round? the other two are pretty much ordinary.

    1/2/3 or 4?

    i don't own a nice pair of brown boots, dayton's are nice but a bit out of my price range


    Juding by your recent WAYWT post, these would all work. The white wedge sole is the trendiest so I guess take that into account. Are they Grenson? I know a lot of people seem to like Grenson's lower line, which if I remember right is not made in England to the standards of their better lines, but I've always steered clear. The look is good, though.

    Should I? Not sure how versatile these would be... heck... how would they look with jeans? chinos?


    They'd look pretty good with washed or well-faded denim, almost any shade of tan, and olive. Do you have a pair of bucks/red-soled shoes already? I like red soles but obv more neutral soles are more versatile.

    those look good to me. would look great with chinos. not sure about denim though. The blue/blue might be a little much. maybe with a cuff to break up the colors a bit? idk. what are they?
    Check tres bien, they did a collab with Mcnair and they just put them up

    well i like these too: http://www.ssense.com/men/product/kr...sneakers/35301

    but i dont think theyll accommodate a stack that well, given the width of the shaft.

    and i dont think i want to go with the ricks in all black

    http://www.ssense.com/men/product/ri...sneakers/33790

    id rather have inverted colour of synths


    I like http://www.ssense.com/men/product/kr...sneakers/35301

    It looks a lot like one of Dior sneakers which I really like.

    Oh my god, I DO NOT like these jeans. What is up with all these patterns? They made me dizzy!

    this is good advice. i will take it. i am moving toward more relaxed pants. not so much like yours but a slight drop crotch, a la neil barrett. Attachment 63038 Attachment 63039 maybe those nb pants will look good with nylon rafs as well. Artishard, I kinda like those. Are they Rick? Obv needs some dope sneakers to go with em.

    Absolutely horrible.

    I don't know, they don't strike me as any more offensive than the paint splattered gats everyone jumped on.

    +1. And yeah, the DBSS sneakers are not that easy to wear with just anything. You really need to pair them with the right bottoms. I generally only like how mine look when paired with DBSS half pants.

    that's why i havent taken the plunge on them. I don't like my shoes doing all the talkin, and having to work my wardrobe around them.

    ^Too much money for flimsy leather - insert obligatory "go buy TOJ" comment but really, why NOT just get a Minimalist DR from Drew for 10 bucks more?

    I like 1 and 3... which one depends on-
    color - 3 looks to be cordovan colored (at least on my monitor) while the others are brown
    what you're wearing them w/.... 1 looks a little more antiqued and therefore more casual than 3 which has more sheen to it.

    I like TOJ leathers, but I'm not a fan of really thick leather. Where is this Minimalist DR you speak of?
    I've never touched this particular jacket, but I really liked the feel of the other R&B ones.

    What AR said, +1.

    Get it in black lamb, fitted to your measurements. $710, no brainer.
