    G these are freakin' incredible. Hands down the most comfortable Alden I own. LeatherSoul did a collab with Self Edge, a pair of jeans (that are totally badass, but I'm not ready to drop $500 on denim yet) and these boots (as well as in black lady calf). The sole they have is so comfy, and its an all eyelet which I love. Done in WW2 ration style with a "faux cap toe".

    those are sweet man. i am looking for a boot that is comfortable for tramping around hours at a time, and these look like they're very well suited. i have a pair of Red Wings with the rubber sole, but have been looking for something a little different from a moc toe. i may need to buy these!

    :)



    Nice pants dude. I wish I could wear bright colors, unfortunately I'm the color of that cardigan.



    I'd never thought of that. I gotta give that a try. I either need to learn to knit my own or find a way to get sweaters tailored...

    Lazy ass sunday
    sweatshirt needs to get the waist taken in a bit. Its kinda a tent now, but its pretty low on the list of priorities.

    ^ Your sweatshirt is fine, no need for any alterations. I like your simpler fits BTW.

    jeans are too big in the waist/crotch area.


    chinos are too tight in the top block and too long -- the roll looks ugly and clunky. get them hemmed up a few inches and they'll look a lot better.

    You´ve never seen a fit I´ve posted. Tu ne peux pas juger à personne, así que guarda silencio, ¿querés?

    The bagginess of the jeans and the extra sweater fabric gathering around your wrists are making you look too much like a little boy wearing his dad's clothing.

    the jeans just need to be tapered in and the waist band of the top lowered so you don't look like Simon Cowell. Other than that it's an ok look.

    Tu quoque is a logical fallacy. It's when A makes criticism P; A is guilty of P; Therefor, P is dismissed. Liam calls fits comical; Liam dresses comically; Therefor, Liam can't call any fit comical. This is fallacious and he's right, most of the goofy fits posted in SW&D are comical.
