    Bry2000 that means fit for you right? Great! Erm I was going to wear them with my less casual stuff like trousers (VB flares) and some dries. I have a pair of patchwork junya denim and some random cdg stuff that I will prob wear it with too.

    Basically it's good for dressed up SWD.. like the stuff mumma, Fokken or fuuma does. Or some of Parker's more formalish fits.. (yohji for eg)

    Yes, they do fit and I am quite happy with the shoes.

    I have picked up a couple of Yohji and CdG pieces over the past few seasons. And Dries. I have been trying to change and upgrade my casual wear. These will likely work with that theme

    Do you think they will work with EG and Needles type clothing as well?

    Cross-posting from RFT cause no love there. And I know what you're thinking -- I've tried looking it up already.

    Also wanted to add that I'm wondering if heel slip is really to be expected given the very thick sole. The heel/ankle area of the shoe is wide-ish, however, and my heel isn't super wide.

    An inch of heel slippage seems like a lot. If your toes are comfortable, you might consider an insole or tongue pads? Is it slipping a bunch when you walk around?

    I've never been happy with derbies that have heel slippage - it's harder to correct with insoles than boots. That seems like a lot. Either wear them with thick socks in the winter or consider finding your size

    sorry to hear that dude.. i think it may be too big (maybe 1/2 size?). fwiw i don't have any heel slippage or much spare room in the front. on the bright side it should be an easy flip.

    edit @bry2000 not with my EG/needles stuff which is at the much more casual end of the spectrum..

    Damn it. I was trying to convince myself they weren't big lol. Not because I'm concerned about the no return issue as much as I want them to work so bad because they're so damn amazing.

    There's also the complicating factor that I've never tried a pair of welted shoes that wasn't unstructured suede or already broken in that didn't slip at the heel. It's the curse of narrow heels and wide-ish forefeet. It's part of the reason I own so few.

    I think the slippage varies from 1/2" to 1".

    P.S. Anyone that has a size 9/Medium of these they wanna sell, please let me know.

    P.P.S. Here are pictures of where the shoe wants to crease. Trying to figure out if it's worth trying to hunt down a smaller size (i.e. these are too long based on where they crease), or if the heel slip is caused by the last not being good for my foot (i.e. the crease is in the appropriate place, which suggests some other issue for my foot fitting the last)

    Looks like they're creasing in the right place to me.

    Don't listen to synth, he'll tell you he doesn't wear black then he'll go and wear black three days in a row.

    I bought this shirt, not this sure about it. Feel like it's too long/big for me? Fits good in the shoulders, but maybe I need to get it taken in and hemmed.

    Also not sure about the double buttons?

    I feel like this would work better with a more loose bottom half

    Hmm I like the look the model has and he's wearing quite fitted trousers?

    I suppose I just neeed help styling it, just not sure if i should get it tailored to something more fitted.
