    Anyone taken any shit for wearing those newfangled red-soled wingtip/buck/frankenstein concoctions? Like those Grensons. Those look really nice, but all I hear when I bring them up IRL is, Ooh, maybe if you were GHEY. (Concerned middle-aged female variation: Ooh, but won't people think you're ghey?)

    Unfortunately, this has been a theme, lately, as I try to expand my sartorial horizons. Effing RACISTS!


    I don't really dig on the McNairy monstrosity hybrid things, but I'm a couple degrees away from that sort of americana anyway.

    People will think you're gay, but here's the deal: limited horizons are their own punishment. If you tell yourself that all music is dumb except for classic rock and prog, you never get to hear Bill Evans and Stan Getz play "Emily" or "Grandfather's Waltz", etc. etc. Go wear the stuff you think is cool, you don't get three hundred thousand bitches on your dick without having a few haters.

    waist is pretty much true to size.
    i ordered a size 30 and the exact waist measurement is 15.25'' laying flat. i ordered the slimmest cut, and as one can see in the fit its not super slim at all. there is a medium and then a huge baggy cut.
    dont know if itll stretch but i dont need it to as my waist is a bit smaller than 30.

    cut is cool, banana legs!! lol. both legs curl inward. this makes for some great stacking. other brands use j-legs which ive never owned but look cool as well.

    i proxied them from forward.
    just checked they have a good size run, 30 32 34
    i think there is a 28 but ive never seen them.

    edit: i like the high waist on them, but the yoke and pocket placement makes them look low rise...good stuff damir, good stuff..ahha

    I don't know why but the following jacket made me smile. I can't invest in a good leather jacket at the moment so I was thinking if this would be a fun alternative. Any info about Diesel sizing? I am 6' 3", chest about 40, with a long torso and since I will have to wear this zipped I am worried if it will be long enough.

    ^ Hideous colour, polyester blend, extremely awkward pocket placement, vestigial ticket pocket, tacky belt... what's not to love?
