    Would it be retarded for me to buy them and have them taken in? It's such an appealing price, and I just feel like the Vibskov drop crotches are too extreme. I know, I'm a puss.

    I wouldn't buy something 2 sizes too big. Just live to fight another day. The vibskovs dont' seem too bad. I'll see if a boston store has them and i'll actually try them on and let you know. I still might get that red/white vibskov dagmar tank sometime this season though

    Yeah. I like that tank, I think it's on forward for like 90something right now? Shouldn't be too hard to find a discount code. Are you guys gonna go to Soho at all?

    If you can remove the croc, I'd say yay, otherwise nay. Lacoste actually make some quality sneakers, the croc always bothers me though, I think 99% of the time it looks out of place.

    I have those shown and in brown leather as well. I love them. They are definitely one of the better looking pair of boots I've seen for pants with a tapered leg with a hem of ~7.5" or less. (IMHO, I don't think they look very good with a straight leg though; they are not a 'chunky' boot.) FWIW, my girlfriend says they are her favorite pair of shoes I own (and I have a lot of shoes...). They aren't for everyone, but I like them, and I get a lot of wear out of them.

    I know you're one for confrontation, but I think you're wrong here, lacoste are not 'garbage', the quality is decent and the brand has a reputation, they're certainly above vans in the market.

    I like those boots (are they BoO?), only I'm uncertain about the cream/redline sole trim, I'd get out some black paint/polish and work some magic on it if I copped those.

    Saw a cream pair of perf loafers a few weeks ago, made in indonesia and synthetic lined. Smelled like a petroleum by-product... they'd probably run my car if i stuffed them inside the fuel tank
