    ^^Slamming Paraboot as cheap looking /"hideous moccasin seam"is imo completly off.

    I wouldnt get blue shoes, but other than the Paraboots are really good.

    The second black Vibergs are nice aswell.

    I just calls em like I sees em. The moc seam isn't quite so bad on 2 and 3, but I am not kidding when I say I think the first pair is just as ugly as Crocs. They look like a Dutchman and a Native American collaborated on a feces-coloured moccasin-clog for a midget clown. They're repulsive.

    Yeah man, this looks the same as all of the other pieces you own, which coincidentally all look the same as each other too. I do respect the commitment though

    I realize this is splitting hairs, but anyone have an opinion on which color is better?

    To @ericleavitt, I like the second shoe the best, and maybe the black boot, but the first would also go well with EG stuff, I think.

    Too Narc Dad?

    I was also thinking Victory Sportswear/ Hersey, but they look even more Narc Dad.

    I have the Victory Nepenthes ones and like them a lot. Comfy, sturdy sole, good support, good for running. Kind of an understated NB design with the right amount of panels and a sleeker silhouette.

    The Victory trainers are incredible. Worth every penny. Much nicer than New Balance and much better made than Spalwarts.

    Does this jacket fit me properly? It's APC and I ordered from tres bien in a size medium. It's good in the shoulders, chest and even sleeves. But the silhouette is not as slim in the waist and down the legs - I think it's meant to be that way?

    I've never owned a jacket this long so I'm not sure?

    They'll go well with beige chinos and your FBI badge.

    Woah a slightly shiny DB black jacket, you really need another one! Only buy to replace if you like it better than what you have...

    @1up first pic looks too wide from the waist down, but everything else looks fine, so it probably is fine. if it keeps bothering you, have it narrowed (only slightly) from the waist down.

    Yeah, not sure if making it slim will restrict my walking when it's closed?
