    Hi, do you mind providing the name of the denim. They are beautiful. I'd say go for the black. i am a big fan of double dark denim but these look really nice. Defo black. Both if you are flush.

    Cheers

    Was hoping you won't say that haha. I have trunky thighs and these aren't the most friendly. Had to opt for the New Standard in a double back when I bought them. Thanks

    lmao, are you going for a casual watch or something you can wear in your field? (doctor?)

    i like hamilton but there are cleaner options like a sinn for under 1000

    or junghans for something more formal :drool:

    snowman, thanks for the suggestions. Huge fan of the 556 - but they're a little out of my price range and tough to track down (not that I tried that hard). I might have gone that route if I could find one under $1000 that I was confident in. Really looking for a daily driver that I can wear on all occasions - being in the hospital is not overly formal and a Hamilton will definitely do the trick from that standpoint.

    You're welcome. My dad has a Hamilton in his rotation and it seems to be going
    Strong after 4-5 years so you can't go wrong!

    Anyone know how warm these are? Devoa, Wool+Washi. Didn't see it with any Japanese stockist, is it from this FW season?

    yes you should buy those devoa, or link me to them so I can buy them.

    should i buy - Hansen wool Ivan trousers.
    No clue about the brand, been wanting some casual wool pants.
    They seem like a pretty regular fit (which i need) with a good taper (which i want) but can't find any measurements so I'm going off looks. I like the permanenet crease, reminds me of combat pants. For use with black hi tops and boots. Anybody have any idea about Hansen as a brand?

    These are the A/W season that's just gone by. Amazing fabric; I haven't had a chance to wear them in any colder weather yet, but I'd say you'll be sitting pretty. I just wish Daisuke did more washi blends.

    Those Devoa look great and if that's your size on discount you should go for it.

    Occulta, you can do (a lot) better.

    @OccultaVexillum What size are you? I believe you are a big guy from some of your posts. Buy the wool cashmere trousers on H. Lorenzo website, tagged size 52. That fabric composition just sounds so soft and smooth, and hopefully pretty substantial (thick). edit: Christophe Lemaire pants

    Should I keep both? I couldn't help myself when the boots went on sale for 50% off...they'll make great 'shit kickers' though the tongue is really, really funny being a thin piece of leather. I think it is intentional so it is easier to get your foot in and out of the boot (you can peel the tongue forward). The entire tongue is like maybe 5" long but half of it is unlined (upper section).

    I am also a bit spoiled with shoes and side zip boots. I felt really annoyed having to unlace and lace back up the shoes upon trying them on.

    @gettoasty Have you tried them? They just look too slim for me from all the shots I've seen.

    I have an older iteration 100% wool. IMO they fit slim all knee down. Should be accommodating in the seat and thigh. See if you can order from Farfetch instead of directly from H. Lorenzo since the former allow returns and their is a 20% off code running.
