    You had posted mentioning IS boots, right? What designer is that again?

    And thanks, Superb0bo. I'll check those out, too

    The attachment boots are very similar in shape to Carpe Diem s52m workboots. Obviously those aren't going to be much cheaper or easier to get your hands on. But they do come in larger sizes, so at the very least you could keep your eyes out for them on grailed, ebay, and the classified section here, on SuFu and on SZ.

    Thinking about a Dior cashmere peacoat. Super luxe and warm. May need to get some tailoring on sleeves to be more fitted. Thoughts?

    @Superb0bo I am fairly certain those attachment boots go up to 44. What size do you need?

    Oh, sorry - got the sn's confused. @Spehsmonkey check rakuten/y!jp for those boots, because I am pretty sure I have seen the occasional great deal.

    I was thinking about picking this up for just a casual twill jacket. I thought it had a cool look to it. I'm 6'5" 200lb.

    I'd be a 43.5 if these are true to size as people have said. 10.5 on the Brannock, most sneakers, dress shoes, etc.

    I've been checking Rakuten, but will have to look at Y!JP, too. I think I've only seen one 44 (Grailed) which was sold out and the Kazuyuki Kumagai official site doesn't seem to offer shoes larger than 43 unfortunately.

    I always gravitate towards all black, but they're all nice. I just want a classic varsity and I've liked these ones for a long time. Which colour?

    All black might strike me the best, but I find the second (black and grey) the most interesting. The other two may be a little too loud with the contrast idea.

    you should buy one of the non-black ones so you can tell your friends the contrast arm was the result of fighting off restless ghosts

    Yeah. All black is the sound choice. I wish the dark navy was both grey sleeves or one navy/one grey.

    Margiela moonboot-reminiscent side zips for cheap on yoox. I dig the wedge sole and want to pull the trigger, but I've been seeing lots of bad commentary on MMM footwear quality around here lately. Pls advise, styleforum.

    Eh, it's Yoox. Have 'em shipped, see if they work out. If they don't, send 'em back.

    Now that I think of it I'm pretty sure @el Bert has the derby/creeper version of those MMM boots. Maybe ask him about quality?

    Someone literally bought the last pair minutes after I posted, so it's a moot point. I assume it was someone lurking who reverse-searched the image or something since they are part of the weird yoox deep discounting and aren't even searchable right now unless they're in your dream box.

    To that person: F U, I hope they fall apart.
