    I don't believe i've ever seen anybody write so closely to Hunter Thompson's style on an online forum without the intention to do so.

    Kiya,
    I'm one of your best customers. I take what you said as a great compliment. I'm heading over to the Self Edge thread next.

    For those who are unfamiliar with Kiya, he is the Steve McQueen of Persian Denim perveyors who like myself made the voluntary choice that hair slowed him down. To speak accurately, Kiya is the most influential individual in the United States denim market since denim was created...thus making him the most important and influential individual who has ever exposed the United States to denim. I'm not talking about the NY garmentos who enter and exit the denim world every 3-6 years, each time with a brand which further deteriorates their already non-existent group of admirers.

    Without Kiya, we have no Flat Head, We have no Iron Heart, We have no Sugar Cane, we have no Dry Bones, we have no Strike Gold, we have no RJB and , most important;y, we have no Roy. Kiya is on the verge of doing what Michael Milken made an artform out of in the 80's. We call it a hostile takeover. I do not see the department of trade getting involved when SE starts carrying Samurai, Studio, PBJ and Momotoro. Blue in Green tries to be so authentic that they literally cannot communicate with their perspective U.S. customers. Just as AT&T lost the iphone, Kiya will soon be carryingall of these brands and will stop his ceasefire with a store which fails to understand that their goal os to be one of two leading outposts where Americans can purchase the finest Japanese Denim. Go get 'em, McQueen!

    I lol'd.

    Seriously though, if y'all haven't noticed, Self Edge focuses on Japanese brands with an American flavor. Many of BiG's brands have a decidedly more Japanese character, like Momotaro, PBJ, Samurai, etc. So it's not guaranteed that he'd stock all of them even if BiG didn't, they don't necessarily fit in with the store's flavor.

    I'm (obviously) very flattered, you should write our press blasts for us.
    FYI, the SE thread is right this way: http://www.styleforum.net/t/26625/s...e-gold-3sixteen-roy-etc-affiliate-thread/5625

    Just wondering whether the 2030 last (with unstructured toe) is significantly sleeker/slimmer than the Red Wing Iron Ranger (D width) last?

    I'm thinking about getting a pair of service boots but I want to be able to dress these up with slim chinos and a collared shirt (possibly even with a casual suit) and not look like my boots have just stepped out of a construction site and/or a clown performance.

    I find the IR last balloons around the mid foot and looks really chunky and a bit clowny.
    How about compared to the Wolverine 1000mile as well? I'm looking for something a little sleeker than these as well.

    Some photos I see of the 2030 service boot look nice and slim and dressy and some look kind of chunky.

    If anyone has fit pics of these with slim jeans/chinos, that would be grand as well.

    Thanks.
