I should have been aware of the lack of wariness accompanied by getting free jeans. God knows I'd have been more cautious had it have come out of pocket.
Will post pictures of Midnight Riders shortly. Would appreciate feedback.
A) I would contend this is exactly the right strategy for claiming victorypants. If you're paying out of pocket, sure, take the time and make sure you're gonna get maximum bang for the buck (in terms of how regularly you'll want to wear them). But since this is an opportunity to get something for nothing, why not use it to push your boundaries a get and try something new?
They look great. (though I do think they cater better towards a more classic boot/oxford/non-urban-sneaker type shoe)
So I say well done!
Edit: And let's see your t-shirt design!
