    can you reccomend me some? I was going to buy the common projects x robert geller boots if they were $700, but their around $850 before taxes and i live in Vancouver so we have 12% tax [​IMG]

    thanks


    woah $160 to $700 jump. There's plenty of nice boots in between those prices

    Buttero makes a relatively similar pair. Also check out Fiorentini + Baker. Apparently they're on sale at Barneys if you live near one.

    If you're a 41, CP canvas boots are on sale here

    Bastian (OMG Cucinelli!) wool-merino-alpaca blend. I like it, but I kind of feel like I can get something better if I wait for sales (though it is >70% off)

    i like it.

    Here's my L SNS Herning Naval on me. It's not quite as slim/tight as most Breton-type sweaters I've seen worn. And, it's about as long as I could stand to wear (these things are long!). Opinions on the fit? Keep or sell? I won't be able to find another in this color in M, that's for sure.

    Honestly, I think it fits me well, but could stand to be a little smaller. Maybe not worth sizing down...


    You look like one of the joker's henchmen from the old Adam West version of Batman.

    Dear noobs looking for cheap boots,
    Look at To Boot New York. They're decently cheap (retail $200-$300), I've heard a few decent responses (though there isn't that much feedback that I've come across), can be had for decently cheaper ($150-$200) and are pretty nicely designed. They may be a bit hard to come by, but Nordstroms/Rack stocks them

    If it's the tax that's bugging you I'll proxy them for you from AB (5%)... but somehow I doubt it?

    Kit what size feet?
    These are 10.5s but my size is all over the place, 8.5UK in PS Ricards (and I could likely go to an 8 if I really wanted a tight fit). Makes ordering shoes online a hassle lol

    you look like a sailor deck hand for a pirate ship

    You look like one of the joker's henchmen from the old Adam West version of Batman.

    I am ok with either of these scenarios.

    i like it.


    thanks for the suggestion, those cps are definately nice and im a 41... the only thing thats bugging me is that their canvas, i would probably need the boots to at least rain and stuff.

    haha, yea...$160 - $700 is a huge jump, but its difficult finding boots that i like and having a zipper on the side is really convinent.

    All of them, nah I'd personally go with the yellow and blue so you can wear the yellow with navy jeans and the blue with chinos or lighter jeans.

    Yeah, I was leaning towards that one already, since I need some colour in my wardrobe. And lets face it, all raincoats should be yellow.

    It's treated canvas, it's waterproof.
