    New leather Vans slip-ons for summer. Black Lux leather with “porcini” tan leather trim. Lucked into a store return in my size on eBay for $25.

    Picked up some pearly white Stan Smith Adidas on clearance at DSW. Dappered recommendations ftw again - they're super comfortable. Got them for 59.99 with 20% off with a $10 coupon discount.

    Just bought an all original SKX007 from 1997 (second year of production). Perfect amount of wabi. Should be shipping Monday.

    Epaulet, light-light grey, ghost horsehide tennis trainers arrived. Very comfortable right out of the box. Not quite white obviously, but a little lighter than "sand" chino color.

    Ordered the light-light grey, front-quarter horsehide tennis trainers from Epaulet

    I am hoping they are good. I had been looking at not-quite-white sneakers for a while and these appear to tick all the boxes.

    [MENTION=14744]Dun[/MENTION] If you need to have a Ludlow let out, your probably better off with the contemporary fit from S&M. If it's your first order from them, you can always pick up both fits to see which is best since returns on your first purchase are free. I really regret not picking up the matching trousers from last year's run of their navy hopsack sport coats.

    J. Crew ludlow un suit before any tailoring
    Navy stretch cotton
    44r and 36x32 on 5'11" and 220 lbs
    Unstructured and I think enough material to let out and get rid of the button x'ing

    My only hesitation for keeping it is it's first duty would have to be a summer day wedding in LA, groomsmen were told to "just wear a navy suit", so I'm worried about it being too rumpled next to more structured suits.

    I'm hoping to also get the spier & Mackay hopsack 2 piece soon to be coming out and compare. Also any recommendations if I should go slim or contemporary on the S&M?

    There is a little extra blousing around the bottom back around the elastic hem, but nothing crazy. That just seems to be inherent to the design. I would not call it baggy or boxy. Even sized up, I would say it is pretty fitted for the most part.

So I returned that. None of the other colors available at US retailers really interested me (the bright Cambridge blue is fun but not available in my size). I ended (no pun intended) up deciding on the racing green color available from End. I was glad to have bought from J.Crew first because then I didn't have to guess on my sizing with international returns on the line from End. These do run a size small.

    Nice. Love Harrington jackets. Hoping to get one myself some day.

    Those are Aquatalia Benjamin dark green pony hair.

    They are very comfortable although it is questionable if they are worth $178. They certainly aren't worth the $595 msrp. The edge of the tongue is already going bald on mine, although none of that is visible unless I take them off. This is after about 25 wears. The shedding is not as bad as the haircalf converse I had before. I clean them with a soft cat brush and magic eraser for the soles. I store them in the shoe bag that came with them.

    I bought little plastic doo-dads that allow me to lace without a bow and without having to tie anything on the inside of the shoe. After trying these, I think I should have gotten the 9 pack.
    Sorry, see my message above. Forget to click reply with quote. Again, awesome shoes.
