    Got my first Dior Homme suit. Received it back from the tailor today. Wow. I feel like a million dollars. Won't wear anything else now, well, maybe Prada.

    It feels GREAT!

    That sounded a lot more retarded than I anticipated. Can I blame it on too much coffee?

    Am very happy with the Dior suit. Wasn't serious about not wearing anything else, of course.

    Why Clark's desert boots are so popular is beyond me.

    I may have to stop wearing them they're getting so ubiquitous. I've been wearing the beeswax model for 2-3 years, and re wax them pretty frequently to keep water out and keep scuffs from getting worse, so they always look brand new. All these kids are buying them, hitting them with sand paper so they look worn in, and now I look like I just hopped on the bandwagon and forgot to antique them. I'd just wait for it to pass, but they're so damn comfy I think people will actually hang on to them. If not, I'm gonna get enough pairs for a lifetime on ebay dirt cheap as soon as the fad passes.

    and thats why people wear them. They hold up for ages, they're good year round and they're super comfortable without looking like shitty gym sneakers. at least thats my bet. why they trended? because they're ugly, and hipsters.

    I think all chukkas are ugly, but Alden's look much nicer. Honestly, I think a pair of Jack Purcells look better than desert boots.

    I love chukkas, own several different styles, also own CDBs, hate them. I find them actually to be very uncomfortable.

    My desert boots have been incredible after about a 2 wear break in.

    I like the look and they are very comfortable...but I think the shape would look terrible with wingtips (as it seems to on the women's model).

    to each their own. most comfortable shoe I own for me other than possibly my AE strands, and I don't worry about getting beer on them or scuffing them. nice, low maintenance shoe.

    and again, questionable taste in aesthetics is pretty much a given with me.

    Chukkas can be quite cool especially in dark brown suede..

    CDBs must work for a lot of people because so many rave about the comfort.

    But for me, they just don't work. I have a hard time imagining how they could - the toe box and vamp are quite low, and the small lacing area (only 2 holes per side) way down on the instep means I've got to put all the tension on a single spot farther down my foot than I'm used to. For a shoe that you're supposed to be able to walk in, I don't get how it could provide enough support for anyone.
