    No first hand experience but iirc lace ups fit smaller than sidezips and backzips so those might work. Can't you just compare sole measurements and go from there ?

    I love these Grenson boots for some reason. What do you guys think? Should I buy the brown or tan one? Which works best with dark jeans?

    the second boot's color would look awesome with a dark pair of jeans.

    I think hes referring to the ma-1 not bomber since he posted pics of the A.P.C. one. Blanc and Noir, Lanvin, TOJ (price is ~300 iirc), Margiela, etc usually have bombers every season. Just look around and you will find one that has a good price / quality ratio.

    Gotcha. Would've been kind of bizarre if we'd been at the same wedding.

    I remember seeing some nice green Trickers but I can't find them on their website.
    They only have two boot models at the moment. (both brown) What's up with that?

    I'd go for the tan if you're going to wear with jeans. I have the Loake 1880 equivalent in that colour, and they work very well with dark denim.

    I am looking for a bomber, but after seeing teh TOJ1, I will have consider my options. I'm really feeling the camo lining on black. It looks so sick.

    Ann Demeulemeester coat.

    Financially crushing at full retail. Still on the fence, I'm afraid if I email for measurements I'm gonna pull the trigger. Does anyone have experience with Ann D outerwear?

    ^ looks interesting. I like how the material looks, is it wool? What's full retail?

    it's wool/linen. i've seen this coat in other materials as well, but this particular one has more texture and slight color variation. $1630.

    i've heard ann d sizing can run big, so i'm hoping i won't need xxs, which could be very difficult to find.
