Everyone's chinos are looking great. I still haven't ordered mine as Christian suggested comparing the measurements with my old ducks - since we're away i can't do that for another couple of days. Itching to get these after seeing all your pics0
Beautiful -z-, the combo of narration & photos is magic! And ditto for those cupcakes!!
I haven't been posting that much lately. December was an insanely busy work month, most of it spent in a suit. But I did get out to do a few interesting things.
I did a shoot for a dance company - it was a ton of fun, great to be surrounded by all those vastly energetic & talented dancers! Here are a couple of out-takes:
Once my little one was off from school, we found ways to entertain her & ourselves.
For the first time in a while, we visited the zoo. Because it is the "off" season, we pretty much had the place to ourselves.
One of our favourite spots was with the tigers - it's always an interesting feeling when you're not at the top of the food chain!
The arctic wolves were a blast - we must have spent a good hour howling back & forth with them!
The rhinos were probably where we spent the most time. There was something fascinating - almost prehistoric - about these giants
Another trip we did was to visit the Hershey factory store in Niagara Falls - 650 square feet of chocolate extravaganza! Just a few pics to whet your appetites
I'll continue later with the Xmas stuff !26
is anyone else noticing this shit? how you be levitating??????
^ Sounds good to me Fits are excellent - stoked to get mine! Also, arcarsenal - the Mulholland looks great - glad we collectively twisted your arm!0
Congrats suzie - awesome indeed!
Shubs - thx for that link - going to show it to our little girl
My thought for the morning - happy new year...3
This is gonna be the shoe porn thread!
Coleslawyum, the edge finishing you did on those bucos is really beautiful!2
Very nice indeed! The desaturation gives them a certain ambiance which I like!
Are you shooting with the 85?0
Looking good guys! Day 1.... The Whiskey Aldens will have to wait - leather soles on snow and ice - not too good!17
^this. But I'm still tempted....1
Still got 2 spots that haven't been claimed yet, Riff
Stop tempting me - i know what kind of trouble you get into
So - is what's showing on his website all the stock he has left?1
I keep needing to remind myself that I told myself I would take a break from contests once royxcone is over (though I'm quite intrigued by these pants), so I'll stop cluttering with my questions!
Sounds like ninja07 is a similar size to me, though, so I'll be curious to see how his 28s wind up! Unfortunately smallest size in the seconds sale is 30.
Also, just saw this on You Have Broken the Internet (via some other blog):
look like Left Field, and dude is apparently a buyer for Need Supply so it would make sense. Good looking fit that makes me even more intrigued... dammit...
This pic mades me sad I passed on these. Should be a great year guys!0
Hope you didn't spill anything on them Happy new year!0
^ alden longwings.

Rapha & studs for the early am freeze26

^ That's something special you got their mate!
I love the look of that heavy lug unit, works better with the shape of the vamp than the original one I reckon.
12 hours left to go for me...going to wear the boots around the house at midnight
theblackgoat - those are bloody amazing!
mike: 26hrs to go for me0
@riff: if you ever make it to NYC I got a few more of these por larranaga petit coronas for us to smoke.
Dammit, everyone knows my weaknesses Thanks bro!
That warp/weft combo will be something to see as it evolves!1
^ they're the 3sixteens - same material i think. looks good man0
Last couple of days39
Shubha, you've got me blushing. That's the nicest compliment But I'd be the first to disabuse you of your romantic notions - and my wife would be the second And I'm no homecoming king Thank you nonetheless.
WAYWT got pretty deep all of a sudden. I never mind neg rep if there is some sort of criticism involved. It's kinda nice to know why you got negged. Not that I'm going to change how I dress to ward off neg rep. Far from it, but it's more out of curiosity of what people disliked and what their personal tastes are.
As for a lot of regulars who post and get +rep they just consistently do it well or have become a favorite among the other members. It's a natural thing to happen. Same goes for the opposite which is unfortunate sometimes, but again a natural course when dealing with a small online community with specific criteria and taste. Furthermore, fashion is so subjective so whether someone hates a fit or not who's to say they're right or wrong in + or - rep?
I think tiger has it - behaviours may be exaggerated online, but they do follow many of the social mores we experience in daily life.1
@ cold summer: I thought your waywt was fine - good fit, good shot, nice background. It's true that newcomers do attract a fair bit of flak - kinda like frat hazing. Is it right? Probably not, but that's life. How you'll continue to be treated will be determined more by how you react to stuff. I remember getting shit on a lot in the beginning. Just carry on & wear what you like.4
Mega, I agree with tmadd - the dress leather is the way to go - it can take a spit shine that even marineabilly would approve of I prefer chromexcel, but then again, i don't want a high shine on most of my boots...
picked these up today! can i get advice on protectors for snow and insoles?
If you have room, try the superfeet insoles. Otherwise, the local cobbler usually has a selection ranging from leather ones to the dr scholls stuff. For snow/water/salt protection, you can try obenaufs or snoseal0
tate + yoko - the official thread
I'd appreciate it if the shit-slinging were taken off line so that consumers can enjoy the thread.
