    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    tell em why you mad jd.
    It always annoys me when people do that. I'm like [​IMG] I would totally have bought those if you hadn't maimed them; if you were going to do that, best be sure you want to KEEP them!

    Same thing with Diors. Like why are you buying Diors if you want them short hemmed.

    should I kop...

    some new footwear (suede bucks)

    or a +j military jacket?

    Right now my footwear is white vans and ll bean boots and my outerwear consists of an ll bean wool overshirt, an oversized gap utility jacket, and my snowboarding jacket which I rarely wear casually.

    I considered hemming because I'm like a 29-30 inseam and they look really silly stacked 35", but I'll probably either trade or sell.

    Don't buy suede bucks, I already told you about that. That shit is going to date so rapidly. +J sounds like a better option, but on the other hand have you considered not buying a military jacket? What about a cool blazer or something? I just don't like how shapeless most military jackets are.

    eh, I don't see myself wearing a blazer that often though and I'm trying to limit my purchases to stuff that I'm going to wear more than once a week, at least. The only thing with buying more outerwear is that it is almost the time of year where I won't be wearing it anyway (how heavy is the +j military jacket?). If you don't like bucks, what kind of footwear do you like? For reference I'm a big fan of the kvc/scott/mf aesthetic.

    Do not hem those. Do not. If you are going to hem them, sell them instead, at least then someone else can use them. If you hem them you will ruin them and then you'll end up wanting to sell them in a few months anyway but they'll be ruined. Then I'll open up a thread in B&S titled "Geller Plum Jeans" and see that you hemmed them and be forced to come to wherever that snowy locale might be and decapitate you.
    this right here. Don't be a fucker and screw up your shit xM. I am the same inseam wise. I just go with the stacks, tuck, cuff, or cuff inward.

    For something closer to the mf look, I Rachel Comey oxfords, like the Derringer or Mateba. Maybe Paul Smith if you can find something you like. What would you be wearing your shoes with?

    Thanks for the advice guys, even if it was needlessly hostile.

    thanks, I'll look into those. Will be wearing with cropped chinos or cords, and a button down? maybe shorts in the summer time.

    Don't buy suede bucks

    this should be "don't buy average suede bucks".

    Just cos they are and will be hideously played out doesn't mean there aren't amazing pairs out there.


    Some of those Trickers x junya ones are pretty good.

    Dunno, I think the stacks look pretty good on those. They're not all-over-the-place sloppy, and they don't make you look short. (I'm moderately biased, though, since the shortest inseam I can get away with on jeans is ~34".) The color's unique, and I think they'd look good sagged maybe an inch or so lower.

    Do you just not wear them? FWIW, I'd expect the gradients to be more difficult to wear.

    I've only ever worn them once and I'm just not hugely confident I can pull them off. By the same token, I worry that the gradient ones will make it look like I pissed myself.

    Get some new boots IMO, like slimmer profile boots. But if you must chose between the two you posted, get the suede bucks.
