    It stains where your pants will drop. Unless you're planning on wear shorts with them or rolling the cuffs, doesn't matter. If you soak the hems a little more, there would be minimal bleeding.

    Something like this will help keep indigo stains to a minimum, as well as using a suede eraser.

    Would look fine with shorts and khakis with similar prep type button downs, light cardis, and what not. Gilt is based on impulse buys though so you can't just sit around on them. I say yes but i'm a bit biased

    If you don't have a pair of boat shoes already, definitely. If you do, and you don't love em/they're not very nice, do it anyway. If you already have a good pair...you probably don't need them, though I do like the texture and accent. Always nice to have a little subtle detail that makes you stand out, even if only you notice.

    Almost bought them to replace my sperrys i've had for like 3 years. The sperrys are built like tanks though. I wear these things into the ground and not so much as a loose stitch.

    Yours are the leather ones right? I had a suede pair a few years back before I got my Quoddy's and I completely annihilated them, wore them through rain and shit and got them all stinky. Considering how hard I wore them I guess they held up decently but they were pretty shot. Suede definitely doesn't hold up as well as leather and I think they might've improved construction over the years.

    Mine are just standard navy leather sperrys. Wear them through rain all the time. I'd get a new pair but i like the way mine look now and if i bought new sperrys they'd look all fresh and lame

    dang they got swooped right before i tried to buy.

    still no boat shoes. probably end up holding out for some quoddys or something with a longer lifespan quality/stylewise

    Been looking for this look for awhile now: [​IMG] Unfortuantly I couldnt find the BoO coat if I wanted it, is this a good alternative? Any clue on sizing? [​IMG] Its a cropped duffel coat, I ususally wear BoO small, would I size down? And this tie: EXCEPT ITS IN BLACK AND WHITE. On the gilt sale for 48... [​IMG] Thanks!

    ?

    I like the color but does it look too much like a women's wallet due to the size? Obviously you can't stuff it in your pants pocket so it would be in a briefcase.

    Talk some sense into me.
