    I personally am a HUGE UC fan, but I can't recommend anyone to buy a single piece from this collection outside of the terry suit. This shit was so fragile I was literally scared to try it on. You've been forewarned, chances are it won't come with tags saying "this garment will fall apart"
    Hah yeah, some of it looked very lightweight and delicate, torn about it because the design of that stuff is awesome. Will probably get one just to see. [​IMG]

    I like what you do so I'll be honest, steer clear of the bottom two, tried all 3 on and definitely first had the best contruction. The slit pockets tear mad easy on tha Ma-1 esque silhouette and the harrington one is AIGHT. but the first is definitely best. You ever consider gyakusou?

    Can get these for $230. Looking for a good summer loafer that I can wear to a business (very) casual office and out on the weekends.

    Are these worth it? can I do better for the price? Not limited to loafers, but something summery. was also considering the j crew suede alden bucks in camel, but don't see those working as well in an office.

    Decent. I read an article about these and they seemed interesting. A little plane-Jane to me, but I can see them working in a casual office. There's something sort of old about them though. I like the blue ones!

    thanks for the input, and no, haven't heard of gyakusou until now, this genre is new to me so i'm pretty much a noob. [​IMG] any other japanese labels make this kind of wipeout-meets-neuromancer kind of shit?

    Never understood that alot of person posting in here leave out price - which is a high factor (or should be) for everyone.

    Dude Gyakusou is Undercover's performance line with Nike, it's insane. White Mountaineering BLK is good too. Outlier and acronym are other labels that come to mind, arcteryx veilance as well.

    buying RO shorts made me realize I dig shorts a lot....plus I realized I could do some interesting shit where I get rick owens denim leggings or julius leggings kinda like the dude in my avatar to pair with em. So, ive been contemplating these, despite my long hate for cargo shorts. [​IMG]

    I suggest to pair those with some oak street bluchers. Denim leggings sounds weird.
