  1. Shoes that look better with age...

    My (primitive) understanding is that an Oxford style hides the laces under leather, whilst the balmoral exposes the laces. The former is of course much dressier, and often paired with suits/tux.
  2. Waywt 2018 (denim version)

    Yep, errors. Lovely outfits above fellas!
  3. Shoes that look better with age...

    I bought this directly from Clinch around 2 years back after going through a few crap jacks, and this is by far the best. Worth the extra.
  4. Shoes that look better with age...

    @spacecadet first thing that jumped to my mind too.
  5. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Post up pics @edmond! Fit pics if possible? Also regarding the humour - all humour is based upon violations (of social, cultural, physical conventions etc.), but what makes something *funny* is whether that violation is benign; interpreted as harmless. If something has an objectifying implication (for example something racist, sexist etc.), it's hard to interpret it as benign if you don't know the person well enough to have a solid grasp of their intention. So yeah, on message boards, where it's hard to really grasp someone's overall worldview and intention, probably not the best idea to go with those risqué comments ;).
  6. Shoes that look better with age...

    Very clean work.

    @Broark i think you’re looking for the “Denim Addicts Anonymous” club next door if you’re looking for discouragement. I’d snap that beauty up if it fit my style.
  8. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    What was your impression on sizing in comparison to RMC/JMC's other denim @MJF9?
  9. TCB

    Looks great, I bought my partner a pair too, need to post up pics soon, such a classic fit.
  10. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    This sums it up.
  11. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Hell yes. 991 and 004 are both rivals for my favourite jean ever. Fantastic cut, construction and denim. Can only imagine the 991bk is the same.
  12. Workshirts

    @redgreen Yep the sleeves on the Suvin gold D5595 were super narrow for me, especially at the elbow down! Must be something happening down at ole SDA... Still, all stretched out now!
  13. The Leather Jacket Thread

    Yeah stitching is incredible @dudewuttheheck. Geez that Himel jacket, your wardrobe is insane.
  14. The Leather Jacket Thread

    Haha indeed; rest assured the handbrake is now well and truly on!
  15. Denim Stores In Australia

    I could definitely do most Sundays in April.
  16. The Leather Jacket Thread

    Forgot to post this up, grabbed a real McCoy’s j-24L last week, loving the quality.
  17. Denim Stores In Australia

    Very cool. Do they have a mailing list/website up and running yet?
  18. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    That's tricky @gumchum, without the ability to try zipping myself it's hard to say precisely what the remedy is. Rather than sending all the way back to RMC for a small issue, I'd first bring it to a tailor and see what they can do. In my limited experience, I think it could be an easy fix. Meanwhile I'm figuring out how to wear this J-24L.
  19. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Thanks Ben! 24L - it’s the only one the mouton collar works on (the standard 24 doesn’t have the requisite snaps on the collar for attachment).
  20. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Sure: chest 44” shoulders 19” length 26” sleeves 27.5”
  21. Show us your leather

    J-24L slightly used from Markkt around 25% off, couldn't help myself.
  22. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Couldn't help myself, available on Markkt in my size (44) for almost 25% off slightly used.
  23. Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    Hear hear. How about a few more pics of that j-24 to turn this thread around Ben! Also want to say I contacted Standard & Strange for advice on j-24/l sizing recently and Jeremy couldn’t be more helpful. Definitely looking to buy some RMC from them soon; good service makes all the difference.
  24. Shoes that look better with age...

    After trying a lot of clinch, I’d say the rule is go up 1 size for NPT, 1-2 sizes for CN, and their wide last I haven’t tried.
  25. Shoes that look better with age...

    Yeah for sure @Iron Horse, makes a hell of a difference.
