Thoughts on this chocolate brown flight jacket from Private White?
I've got a Nigel Cabourn bomber from a few years ago that's like that. I think brown is actually far more versatile than navy for a piece of outerwear like this. You would have a harder time wearing a navy bomber with jeans, for example.

I’m considering picking some up, it’s between the fawn coloured Birks and the Auroras.
Go with Auroras. And then you can still buy a pair of Birks too if you want—just get one of the $30-50 “used” pairs that often pop up on eBay from someone who wore them twice and hated the footbed.

Any reason I shouldn't buy this SC? Cotton tic weave, ivory colour, unconstructed, patch pockets. Ticking all boxes for the perfect summer jacket. Just unsure about its versatility.

This might be more of a Do they even exist...?.

^These are some cool-ass jeans. I totally bought them. And yet, I still want some jeans that look like that. I’m talking Luke Perry on the beach. That perfect late 80s wash, faded to a memory of blue, the smell of Sun In trailing it like a gown.

I bought them. And still they elude me:

Maybe jeans are just hard to photograph. Here, they still appear lighter than the reality. A shade darker than the product shot, and less uniform — that kind of 90s dadwear wash that’s so ironic no one’s in on the joke. And yet, they’re apparently the only light wash jeans without elastane.

I put it to you, Greg: who makes jeans that actually look like that photo? And where can I find them? (Or should I just shut up and rock these...)

Too much heel on these or just the right amount?

Get cowboy boots if you want snakeskin and that much heel. Those heels look like lifts on a chelsea
