    I'm starting to realize that I'm content with raw denim, white v-necks, and a rotation of shoes and outerwear. Seriously it's all I need.

    My go to Summer Outfit.

    Maison Martin Margiela Muffa Wash Boots
    I own too many shoes. None have gotten as much wear over the last six months as these. The dusty white coating wore off revealing supple worn looking leather. My go to outfit is these boots, white tapered jeans and a dark grey AA loose summer crew

    Oliver People's Bernardo
    A modern minimal and very sharp wayfarer, that works perfectly with my face. Plus the lenses are slightly photochromatic so I don't have to take them off indoors.

    Uniqlo t00
    I lost some bodyfat and these are constantly falling off my ass, but for the price there are no better white jeans. I've tried industrial dryers, boiling, but nothing will shrink them. [​IMG] Thought about replacing them with levi's the idea of arcuates drives me insane, fuck pocket details. Will wait until uniqlo restocks

    UWares are really well designed, a 250 will be at my wrist soon.

    I like those margielas except for the soles. And why don't you let a tailor take in your jeans?

    smash just get some levis, pocket arcs aren't that big of a deal.

    +1 the arcs aren't a big deal
    That said, IMO the T000 is a better cut than the 511

    kind of surprised they haven't put out a model that has navy arcs on a basic indigo cut.

    Posted this in the RRL thread a few days ago, no time to take real photos yet but as a result of this pair I've sold off all my denim so this is the only pair I have:

    Smashwindow, if you're dead set on those white jeans rather than another, why not just have the waistband nipped slightly by a tailor? that would at least get your through until uniqlo restocks.

    if you really hate the pocket arcs, do what I did on my pair of 511s and pick them out with a seam ripper

    yeah those RRL's are hideous but could be adjusted to make an arcuate and they'd look fine.

    I ordered a pair of shipley and halmos for less than 40 bucks off gilt hopefully they'll fit otherwise they're going back.
