    Shoes that look better with age...

    I’m kind of on the fence. If it’s just sloppy and will disappear with wear, I can live with it. If it’s going to leak water through, or make it harder to resole down the way, they have to go back. OSB assured me that it wouldn’t affect structural integrity, but if they send pairs out off the line like this and don’t see anything wrong with it, I don’t think I can take their word for it.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    Hello everyone, let me preface this by saying I don’t know jack shit about boots compared to you all. I have a question regarding a pair of OSB trench boots I received recently. I’ve had two pairs before in the past, no issues. I loved the elston last, and hate fussing with buying shoes online. Much harder for me to nail down than denim. So knowing that I like the last a knew my size I ordered this new pair. Anyway, I received them Saturday with what looks like serious gaps around the welt revealing the stitching. I asked the folks on the GYW reddit and I was told to send them back; contacted OSB and was told that the leather will relax and at that point stitching won’t be visible. Sounds a bit like I’m being had. What do you folks think? See pics

    @mpukas Here in NM we’ve got a few raging as well. I work for the forest service and, we just hit our highest level of nationwide readiness. Between the FS and the other land management agencies, over 15k fire fighters have been deployed. More I’m sure since our briefing on Monday.

    @Broark I know you’ve probably sent them off, but I’ll bet you could also just put a tiny bit of JB weld on that. They make specific versions for copper that I’ve used to repair copper plumbing joints. EDIT: nevermind; it looks like the problem is getting the washer back on, not securing it.
  5. Yup I got that one on vinyl as well! I didn’t enjoy the next album as much, blanking on that title though.

    How goes the bb58 honeymoon, Aho? I see you kept around a prospex after your GS purge eh? Been pining over the SPB149 as a viable alternative to the 58. Only concerns, well several of them, are shitty bracelet, 6r35 (it seems reliability is spotty and these are unregulated apparently, so all kinds of variation?) and the limited aspect which has made the price creep up even beyond msrp. The latter is why I’ve never gone for a 58 as well. I might just end up selling the captain cook and getting an aquis 39.5. I think I’ve gotten over the integrated lugs and have come to appreciate Oris quality:price. I’ve also decided only one diver in the collection at any given time, so 1 in, 1 out like with my jeans from now on. Or so I say, lol.
  7. Thought I’d share a couple tracks/performances that came to mind. Hope you all have a good week!

    I’ll dig my pair out from the stash and try to get you a measurement. If I remember right it was around 12.5”. Like I said though, that measurement is deceiving in this cut. I have a pair of black type 3’s in my stash as well and I think they have the same thigh measurement but are much tighter throughout. I’ll see if I can get my wife to take some pics of the two comparing the fit.

    It’s weird, on paper I was kind of concerned that the measurements(specifically thigh and knee) were going to be borderline slim. I think the relaxed top block and high front and back rise kind of push everything a bit lower, making more room. Unless of course you wear your jeans up near your naval, rather than lower on the belt line. I wear all my jeans in the same spot, regardless of rise. I also could have gone a size down I think. I bought 33 OW and could have went 32, but I really bought these to stash for later so it’s good to know I have some flexibility there.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I thought I was in the right as well. Was honestly expecting paypal to de facto side with the buyer. At least the buyer didn’t try to take a sharpie to the shirt and then return it! I’ve lately been taking pictures of the whole process of boxing up the item, shipping out etc. just never know what kind of crap people will pull.

    So guys, I have a sort of... am I the asshole(?) kind of posts. Sold a shirt online, provided measurements in listing. Buyer requests refund, stating that, and I quote: “Didn’t fit how a medium should fit“. For whatever reason, ebay said I was under no obligation to refund his money, and I could close the refund. If you all are more or less familiar with how ebay usually works, even if you don’t accept returns, they will bully your ass around until you refund the buyer, plain and simple. Decided that I will close the return, citing that proper measurements were provided in listing. Buyer gets mad at this point and escalated to a paypal claim. So I provided pictures and documentation of the listing and showed that I had provided measurements, and my defense was that the responsibility of checking measurements falls on the buyer. Fast forward a week, in a surprising move, paypal ruled in my favor and closed the case. I’ve seen in many threads where ebay/paypal almost always sides with the buyer because of eBay’s “money back guarantee”, even if the seller doesn’t accept returns. Anyway, you guys think that was an asshole move to not accept the return? I provided measurements, but he said it “didn’t fit like a medium should, and that I should have indicated so”

    Took forever and had a hassle with customs, but finally received the Club Campus Nacht on Monday. Absolutely love the proportions. Alpha movement is super nice looking and a joy to wind. Has only gained 5 sec since Monday.

    Yeah I had her try on a vintage gruen I have in 34 and she said that was a little too big. I’ve found a few Oris Arteliers in about 29mm and I’m thinking that might be the route I go. I have a few months before her birthday, so plenty of time to do all the research and geek-out, haha.
