    augusta or guidi
    Augusta is tough to compare to Guidi for me even if both are SZ-approved brands. It's a higher price point and generally the leather used is of the stiffer/tougher variety (Horse) with stiff treatments. Classic guidi to me uses soft leather (donkey, kangaroo, soft horse, calf) with a very soft finish and slouchy profile. If you are going to get one pair of these type of shoes I'd go augusta will last you for life or until you resell ;p If price is a concern unless you are getting a great deal on augusta (Fear augusta retail) I'd go guidi. I think it's a better value... <3 no middle man for a lot of aspects of leather working. If you are more concerned with style think stiffer vs slouchier. Either way great shoes. I personally want both, but still waiting on good deals on Augusta derbies. I also find CCP derbies for me somewhat interchangeable with Augusta if you are talking about black cordovan derbies with nice thick looking leather. Both have that slightly grotesque/wabi-sabi quality though CCP more so and Augusta seems to have more traditional elements most of the time. Then again of the two I've only handled Augusta derbies in person so I could be totally off base there.

    I prefer the Character Hero and Alternative Apparel selection in store over the house BDG tanks. But out of those I like them all, maybe lean to the purple and green.

    I just realized that they're sold out of the web-only item I wanted to buy [​IMG] so I guess I'll drag myself over to Rittenhouse <shudder> and just pick up whichever looks good in-store.

    should i treat myself to cp achilles lows in white?

    i just landed my first job ever so i really want to, but 350 bucks? plus, i JUST bought a new pair of CP sandals for 240 bucks.

    something about spending 600 bucks on two pairs of footwear seems messed up (for a kid straight out of undergrad). im really pissed i missed the 50% sale at leather souls.. damn!

    Ssense has CP achilles lows in grey on sale for $255 and the grey looks practically white in the pictures.

    Didn't know where else to post this, so I guess it can go here. [​IMG]

    Does anybody know where I can kop the Stephan Schneider alpaca/wool scarf from last season? Preferably from within the United States.

    Honestly, any scarf of comparable quality / length will do. Just looking for a nice scarf that can stand up to some abuse. [​IMG]

    Out of the half dozen or so members here with that scarf I'm sure you can talk one of us into letting it go.
