What’s the deal with Brixton hats? I really want a packable/rollable fedora like the offerings from Sublime or the nice one that dieworkwear has. But I’m not sure if I can pull it off.

Will I be disappointed if I try out a cheap option from brixton first?

New Bedford sizing
Update in case anyone’s curious. The New Bedford sizings are apparently just as volatile as the old ones — so always insist on measurements. Just received the new SS version in high count twill. It’s really wide (cut bigger than the FW versions) without added length (like a couple of my old SS Bedfords) — ideal for me, a guy of average height.

If you like big lapels, you’re in luck, as they flare out a bit more (or it’s much easier to fold them down for a broader look). I’m a fan.

I think I would like that better with a different sole, but a lot of Yuketen stuff is about creating a weird look anyway, so it's hard to nitpick. If you have the kind of weird workwear that would go with that, then those could be cool.

If you don't already know, Yuketen usually runs wide, so size down half a size if you're a D width on the Brannock.

Really like both style of loafer, but anyone know any brand that offers them in a last that have mid-high instep, unlined leather, and somewhat flexible sole? Really want a loafer that is comfortable but not as comfortable as a Belgium loafer.

Thank you!

Looking for some all white, semi-chunky running style shoes.

Ideal, but sold out: Salomon Satisfy RA Max, Hoka Bondi 6, React Element 87 Sail

I wish I could get the hyped "sail" colorway here:

Saw these styled with some baggy CDGH pants, and it looked pretty great:

Not sure that first one is the React 87 Sails? The sails have a clear upper and red highlights.

Either way, I like the Air Max 97s better between those two.

@Spehsmonkey zoom fly sp?



Triple white might be harder to get but the off white color (light bone) can be had for fairly cheap.

The shoe is translucent btw if you didn't know.

Thanks, @dieworkwear , @MGoCrimson,and @Timbaland. I actually really like those Nike Zoom Fly SPs. Hadn’t seen them before but they look kinda like the Bondis.

I know the ones above are the 55s. 87 sails are sold out (b/c of mega hype), like the Salomon and Hokas.
