    Don't bother. Anywhere but Martha's Vineyard it just makes you look like a dude who's read The Preppy Handbook.

    [​IMG] Think it would be possible to cross-lace these over the zipper? Trying to conceptualize what it would look like.

    Looking for some shoes online and found a pair I'm considering now. What do you think? To be worn with black or blue skinny jeans or with slim fitting khaki chinos. [​IMG]
    Those were 46£. Looking for something maybe 50-100€. E: Also was thinking about these. 36£. Any better? [​IMG]
    Both are awful. I'm sure you can do better. I don't like this kind of shoes but trying to help you [​IMG] £40 [​IMG] [​IMG] http://www.asos.com/Asos-Collection/...ort=-1&clr=Tan £72 [​IMG] http://www.asos.com/Sebago/Sebago-Fa...t=-1&clr=Brown £36 [​IMG] http://www.asos.com/Sebago/Sebago-Fa...t=-1&clr=Black £38 [​IMG] http://www.asos.com/Sebago/Sebago-St...&clr=DarkBrown

    or

    If they're both polarized, option #2. If option #1 is polarized, option #1.

    Persols are such a bitch about what glasses they choose to add polarized lenses to. They'll have a nice model with 4 colorways - one of which will be polarized. meh.

    I wouldn't be surprised if snowman has the most posts in this thread [​IMG]

    i should just throw my whole kop list up and see what you guys think.

    and the most "no" responses
    its better than taking a formulaic approach like that 123 guy.
    (which imo didnt look that bad[​IMG] [​IMG] )

    ^ I admire your imagination, however I can't help but thinking that you will invariably realize sooner or later that your kops have all been awful decisions thus far (at least what I've seen). You've been shouldibuying a lot of winter outerwear lately.. my advice is to wait until next fall so you can make a more 'choice' selection. Sadly, good winter outerwear seems to have the lowest rate of reaching sales, and the selection is completely mutilated by this point. There was a black Geller parka at Blackbird this past fall that would've looked great on you, but it was sold out before first snow.

    yeah i realize that my waywt just look incomplete due to buying pieces that i cant work into fits.

    i do the shouldibuy stuff so i can make a more calculated decision.

    what geller parka was it? the Glassgow?

    ^ the other one.. It was the black parka. BB was the only retailer I saw who had it and it was the first RG piece to sell out. After following the Snowman parka trilogy, I just think that that probably would've fit best with what seems to be your style. You should probably just go all out with Geller like the dude tvontheradio, who is always placing WTBs on both forums and snatching up tons of Geller shit.

    Is that part removable with a tongue underneath? I had a pair of boots similar to that and the zipper part was laced in, and if you laced it over the zipper, the zipper part would no longer be connected to the boot. Ya know what I mean?

    lol, i sold him a drapey tee. i have some geller stuff, but i find there can bee two diff aesthetics to his clothing. sort of punk goth (shredded /drapey/tight pants stuff) or workwear (full count/levis collabs/ and his looser fit jeans) ive got the workwear type stuff in light colours, so i dont wear it as much. i posted the jeans in this thread, they were the pre-distressed ones. i actually found the fit to be nice and relaxed, and the distressing was def not as extreme as the roden gray pics suggest.

    I miss the days when snowman posted fit pics every day.

    haha, just posted one and then read this...thanks mikey[​IMG]
