Hey all, I found the following pair of 7 jeans: http://www.7forallmankind.com/store/...ctid=1464&cs=1 ...and I really like the look. I'm a jeans newbie, but I'm loving the "shininess," really dark wash, lack of any fading, etc. I'm also a fan of slim-fit bootcuts. The problem is that, as a poor grad student, I just can't justify spending $200 on jeans. Now, I realize that you can't get quality jeans for $40. I can probably justify spending in the < $125 range; does anyone have any suggestions for similar jeans for a bit less? I've been very happy with Levi's 527s in the past, but they no longer seem to make the really dark wash in my size. I also love the shoes in that picture. But I know nothing about shoes. I'm looking for a pair of shoes that can be worn at work, at a club, and casually. Shoes that will look very sharp with jeans and aren't outrageously expensive. I currently wear a pair of ECCO's that look something like this: http://www.eccousa.com/shoes/mens/ca...87/detail.aspx -- but I feel that my shoes lack a certain "edge." Of course, I also don't want to get shoes that are too fancy (perhaps the shoes in the picture, for instance?). Any suggestions for resources to help me with shoes would be much appreciated!
