    I thought they looked like futuristic german army trainers...I need white low tops and well...they're Jil Sander. [​IMG] I'll try to do better next time.

    Jil's is mad uggz.

    If you want designer kicks check Oki Ni. The Margiela and Christian Peau selection is dope. If the price gives you pause PM me.

    You don't like Raf or Jil. Give me a good reason man.

    I have tons of jil and raf my voice is the only one you should listen to.

    Besides I didn't even have to click the link to tell you no. Do not buy jil sneaks ever.

    cs- those look solid for $80. TaT trousers are kinda pricey. I'd just get those if you need work pants.

    Really want to break out of the boat shoe thing this summer. Was thinking about some dirty bucks, but I'm still unsure. I want to wear them with shorts, but I'm not sure how that will look. And even with chinos, they might still look a bit too trad/old manish. If I did buy any, it would be one of these two pairs, from Johnson & Murphy or O'Connell's, respectively. What do you guys think?


    Among these two, I would go with JM. But LLBean also has the same style bucks, its like 75 or something. Looks exactly like these two.

    RRL officer chinos? They're really nice and fit me well, but I feel uneasy about the idea of $185 chinos (I can get them for $150, but still...). Then again, I have an RL store credit, so it's either these or more Rugby buttondowns and maybe a patchwork madras popover.

    I'd rather have the chinos you're really happy with rather than a couple button downs you're only luke warm about

    I'd say $150 for mtm trousers with a great trim cut in a nice fabric of your choosing is a good deal.

    You try on a lot of clothes, don't you, Bruno?

    They actually appear to fit pretty well considering your slight build. Yes, one-fiddy gs is no small price to pay. But if you think they'll be of significant benefit to your wardrobe, jump in. Don't think of buying a patchwork madras popover, I repeat: DON'T THINK OF BUYING A PATCHWORK MADRAS POPOVER.

    Unless, of course...

    How tall are you, Derek? I noticed you have preety large flippers.

    Your dressing room fits always look better than your WAYWTs. Those chinos look great and the shirt is cool too. What is it?

    Thinking of getting the W+H SS09 Bomber jacket in black.

    I like the black and it looks good when its abit faded. I've heard the quality is good.

    Any advices?

    Thanks!
