    if you're going to kop NBs I'd get these leather 576s (made in england)

    much less conspicuous branding (the 'made-in-usa' version on the other hand seems to have branding on the soles?!! wtf?) and great color. i'd kop them but i'm only looking for a pair of running shoes, and these are strictly speaking only for walking so i don't know if functionality-wise i should kop or not. can anyone comment on their suitability for running (jogging actually, nothing intense)?


    These would work really well with an eccentric, LN-CC type wardrobe but not with, say, jeans and an OCBD. They remind me of old sauconys, not that that's necessarily bad.

    Most NBs are appealing in part b/c of the clunkiness and deliberately nonfashion design. Embrace the ugliness. Like a French bulldog.

    Do you have pics? I am not 100% sure how many versions of the Mollino came out that season but just do not assume it is oiled calf right away.


    I tried on an All Saints leather jacket at Bloomingdales (for some reason they carry them now) and look-wise, it captures the aesthetic it intended but quality wasn't too impressive.


    ive handled rick leathers before, obviously they are better leather but i think for the price they ask it justifies the price tag since the leather doesnt look like shit. I tried a belstaff panther and i liked it alot but not for $1200[​IMG]

    I haven't tried it on since I haven't been in NYC in forever even though I was suppose to go february! I'd say buy it if you feel its worth the price. Just know the leather quality is not stellar, and its a blatant copy of the fw09 julius rider. If it fits well, why not? if you're fine with buying derivative stuff its a good buy.


    I was trying to buy kelvs but he made me wait for some guy who wants pics of zippers, lolz.


    Im applying there for a job so if i get a job def copping with the employee discount [​IMG]

    pretty much how i feel about julius: awesome shit i can't wear

    I don't really know what kind of stuff I like anymore because I basically like everything, but I love the whole Julius idea of "fuck it, let's look like badass video game warriors". Because you only get one chance to wear what you want for the number of years you get to have your body, might as well do the thing that gets you on the most primal level.

    Nope, you should definitely pass and tell me who is selling it instead.
