    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Did you end up buying a pair?
    I think it looks decent. I say if you think you'll get a decent amount of use out of it, go for it. Should I go for: chelseas: [​IMG] side-zips: [​IMG] jodhpurs: [​IMG] All are the same leather, and it looks like the color is a little less warm than it shows up in the first pic.

    PC Jogging Boy Pants

    Don't own any other Jogging pants, would probably go well with CP's that I just picked up?

    The cuff isn't that elastic though, kind of just looks like cropped pants in some pics?

    I'd say the color is like Stanley's middle picture mostly. Maybe they look like the third picture on overcast days. Mine have never looked as warm as the color in the first picture.

    I can't decide which of the three you should get. I think for you the Chelseas could be a cool departure from the standard #Styleforum sidezip but the sidezips also would look good. I guess I'm not sold on sef jodhpur yet. I guess we haven't really seen that many pictures of those. Maybe that's the problem.

    I did! Was put off at first by how easily they creased, but I think I'm over it

    Yeah, my initial inclination is toward the chelseas 'cause they're just so damn easy. I have a pair of CP chelseas from a couple of years ago and I definitely like them. I also have a few pairs of side zips, which makes the side zips less appealing. At the same time, I think there's an argument to be made that side zips are objectively cooler than chelseas. Jodhpurs are kind of the dark horse in the mix. I don't have any, and I can't tell whether it would be a pain dealing with the buckle and strap every time I put them on and take them off.



    Rad. I think I'm pretty set on getting a pair of the white ones. You got the houndstooth ones, right?

    White leather! Do you own any common projects btw? I've never handled a pair (shocker rite), and I'm curious to see how Greats' leather compares

    Yeah, I have a couple of pairs of CPs. Their leather isn't super-consistent, though. I've never come across any that felt plasticy or cheap, but there's definitely variation in terns of how stiff, soft, grainy, or smooth the leather is from pair to pair.

    @notwithit I own two other jodhpur boots, not SeF ones, so I'm obviously a fan of the style. I don't think a buckle is too bad, but yes you've gotta learn it. Better than lacing boots up though.

    Got my pair of greats slip ons, they're sleeker than expected.  I'm not sure that's a good thing for what I had in mind for them though?  All white gives vague reminders of nurse shoes. They look dope from the side and back but weird from the front...might just be my wide feet
