    The zip pockets are kind of weird.

    Nay, too boxy, and leather just doesn't look up to MMM standard for some reason. Same conclusion drawn from SSense pics. I know it's supposed to be snakeskinish it just doesn't end up looking great to me.

    ^Not to mention for even the discounted price of that MMM (900ish) you could get said TOJ with a detachable fur collar in some sort of awesome leather like that burgundy horse stuff Drew had a while back.

    The margiela is just too dstressed for me. I like the cleaner designer vs. what toj has now but i'd be afraid the cracked leather would start peeling off or something.

    I don't think you can really compare the TOJ to the Margiela though. If ToJ offered a similar distressed leather then I'd understand.

    I think that settles it for me. I was leaning toward the first one as well, partly because I think it would fit me much better. Thanks, guys.

    Been stalling on the Heritage Research sweater for a while...it's really nice and I still hope to pick it up...luckily I'm at least one size bigger than you [​IMG]

    Depends on the jeans and obviously the rest of it but they're pretty awesome boots. For me, what I wear with a suit I don't wear with streetwear, shoes wise, and I'd wear those with a suits.

    Also, in re: black discussion, my go-to overcoat is black and it's one of my favourite things I own. Wore an all black fit today as a matter of fact.

    Neither, but #1 between the two.

    THose trickers aren't bad. You can't see from that angle, but the last is very blobby looking from up top. Not a fan of Trickers as a whole but they're ok, and in general, I think plain toe work boots are just really bland.

    The wolverines are just ugly. Hate the bulbous looking toe.

    I have no idea what the rest of your outfits look like, so don't know what to recommend. But I think brogues are much more interesting looking, or if you're looking for something cleaner looking, would recommend a chelsea or jodphur boot instead.
