I bought these pair of sneakers/trainers from Herring-and this was my first pair of sneakers. As I am looking to develop my all season casual shoe collection.
I was thinking of getting something along the lines of this next. Would this be a wise move or would you guys recommend something else? Or getting nothing at all.
In terms of my overall casual shoe rotation I have two(aging) Sperry boatshoes, the pair of Herrings, and a pair of Italian drivers. And for winter I have a pair of suede Loake chukkas, along with a pair of Chippewa boots along with the classic Bean ducks.
Should I buy a Margiela weekender (for 50% off)?
I know a lot of members have one - how does it hold up with use?
There's actual bag makers out there, but the shape/dimensions of the MMM bag seems pretty ideal and simple.
Yes, and you can get 10% off extra with FLASH70.
Speaking of Margiela, would this work on a wide shoulders, working out body type? I'm 6'1"/185cm and 200lbs/90kg with a chest circumference around 44.5"/113cm. Also, anyone has any experience with it? Thanks!
Looks too short to me for someone your size
That morejelly weekender looks pretty nice
If it's of any value I love mine and use it all the time for vacations
At 50% off, it's probably fine, but I'd prefer to buy my bags from a bag maker..
In that line of thinking, I'm gonna buy a Frank Clegg tote. Tan or cognac? Leaning towards tan, seems more unique and I believe it'll darken a bit with age?
I agree. Tan
I like cognac. Haven't owned anything in tan, but my cognac Frank Clegg bags haven't darkened noticeably in the ~5 years I've owned them.
Margiela bag looks cool, but I'd buy from a place that allows for returns. IME, some Margiela leather products can be a bit disappointing in terms of material. Feel like they use unconventional leathers sometimes, which can be cool, but can also not at all be like what you wanted.
No. I got that same jacket a while back (tried on and returned), and I've got a similar build except 2 sizes smaller (size 46 body with 48 shoulders) and it did not work at all. Theoretically it could work with some straight-cut pants as part of a boxy top-to-bottom look, but it's definitely a boxy cut and so harder to pull off if your chest / shoulders are a lot bigger than your waist.
It's a seriously nice piece though. Well-made, very nice fabric, and will look great on the right person. But that right person probably has narrow shoulders.
