    welcome back D, havent heard from you in ages

    1. guidi, backzips are too much like a sock imo, i think lace ups may be ok, either way i eliminated the zips for myself

    Sinnedk,
    thanks for the mini-tutorial, and for the leads. Haven't found the right slip-on yet, and I just picked up a pair of the new a1923 "fatto a mano" horsehide boots, which are fantastic, so thought these might be right for me.
    I look forward to learning (and spending, it seems) more in the future.
    Cheers to the Bay Area; living it and loving it.

    Dayumm. Hope you recover quick brah.

    I agree with both you and Sinnedk as to those looking 'sock-like'. The leather is no doubt awesome(my Devoa supposedly is made of that). Wondering if the better made OC desert boots are of Guidi leather because they have been staying up well with all the beating, soft and supple.
    The slouchy look should go well with the rolled up chinos. But if you were to pair it up with some cropped pants like those frm yohji, i would go with a pair that has more a 'structured' shape(L0, Augusta etc).

    I don't want the nubuck version.

    Also the price is a bit steep for their condition and I think they're a half size too big.

    I believe so, but I don't have firsthand experience. I judge by cm size.

    The only kind of rolled up chino I can think of is the one preppy/hipster kids on campus wear with button downs. Are we talking about same chinos?

    i just typed in 'rolled up chinos' on google and this popped up which is sort of what i do. just a loose top block with a taper. if wearing w guidi derbz i'd wear a looser fitting tee. and i like chinos to be of linen material. linen + rolled up works great for spring/summer in fl.

    i guess some do it 'preppy', but i always do it 'luxe lounge' with drape and nice fabric. a loose linen button down with black/grey linen chinos and guidi derbies is anything but preppy it my mind, but to each his own.

    in the market for new boots and looking for recs...looking for brown, rubber sole and like the distressed aesthetic. like stuff I've seen from Marsell, Augusta, and officine creative...what ele should I be looking at and which vendors carry them? also, seems like 'summer' boots like what I've described are kinda limited...am I out of luck until end of summer or so?

    look to buttero, guidi, layer-0... this all depends on budget
