    Somebody else is gonna hafta step up to the plate on that one. They say they're slim fit, and I'm operating under the assumption that a medium tall will fit ok once I get it darted.

    The XS shirts are longer, both in body and sleeve length. EDIT: Probably not by much, but I had to get them tailored cos I'm a hobbit

    ugh, genuine moroccan mint tea is waaaay too sweet
    I was taught how to prepare it my first day there, you load it up with sugar like a 10 year old at starbucks


    i dunno, my aunt is Moroccan and i dont seem to enjoy the tea that much.[​IMG]
    maybe if it was sweeter...[​IMG]

    edit: ^ you seem to be hesitating and answering your own question. regardless of how great tehy look in pics/look books or even other peoples fits, if you dont think they will fit your body type, skin tone, style etc theres no point
    Yea I'm pretty sure other people will think it looks OK but if I personally don't think I'd look good in them whats the point right?
    I like them, they look nifty. I'm 5'7 too and high tops shouldn't mess anything up too bad.
    Yeah, same here. Get them. Those aren't even that high to be honest, more like mid-level.
    Just to get an idea of what they'd look like worn: [​IMG] That's the designer/maker of the shoes and he's ~5'10+.
    they look like pauper shoes.
    They also look awesome. [​IMG]
    At least no one said they look like woman's shoes (general consensus among all the people I know). Unless you all thought I was a girl? I've honestly seen a few girls wear this exact same design/material but I figure like Vans it's unisex more than anything.

    A little further south. I see you're in SoCal too. More like near Huntington/Westminster area. Blah that'd be OC then. I used to live near the 91/605 and that was pretty much the dividing line between LA and OC.

    are you paying retail? then hell no!

    if they are on sale, how much is the sale? these things go heavily on discount from gilt, urban outfitters and even affiliate epaulet.

    can you afford better such as quoddy, yuketen? if not, then i guess ...


    Actually what I want to know is whether a grey pair like that would work. I love the look of it but want to make sure whether it would go with indigo jeans. About considering other brands, my mind is already set on Sperry, I love them, I already have 2 pairs (navy and ice). Beside, I can't afford more expensive brands and this seller sells Sperry for $45. Not too bad of a price I guess?
