  1. Shoes that look better with age...

    These look a LOT like Attractions suede engineers...
  2. The Flat Head

    That looks good to me. I would definitely NOT size down. Are they washed yet?
  3. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I mostly listen to classic rock, early 2000's pop punk, and a boatload of Rush. Not sure that fits with my Sophisticated Japanese biker look.

    Does this mean we need to start a new music genre along with clothing style? My vote is 1950s rock and roll blended with screamo.
  5. The Flat Head

    Flat Head fades still make me smile. Great aging on those sneakers as well. I have the white pair and love them. Wore them today in fact!

    Deleted. Who cares?

    I definitely agree with you. While that look is basic, I think it still looks good... As long as the jeans fit properly. The Japanese take on it that you describe is also what I prefer, though I have seen some westerners do that look with a classic looking western hat and pull it off really well. Damn! I will take that as a compliment. That is essentially my favorite style.

    Yes, Heddels has gone massively down hill and not just in terms of only featuring Indonesian fades. Something I would like to point out is the fact that Indonesia is still earlier on in their raw denim journey. I would imagine that in a few more years, the horizons will broaden. Perhaps not, but sikk fadez were seemingly the only thing that mattered in the western denim scene for quite some time as well. Also, we are only seeing what is likely not their entire scene. Perhaps there are some who do prefer different fades and styles, but we're only seeing what is submitted to Heddels. My guess is that this would be a very tiny minority, but it still could exist. In terms of denim fabrics, washing, fading, etc, there is definitely variety here. However, in terms of style, I would argue otherwise. I may get hate for this, but to me, the style in WAYWT is kinda basic boots, t shirt, flannel look and often streetwear-esque due to the proliferation of sneakers, Red Wing, and Viberg. Although, I will say that it has gotten more diverse, especially in 2018 which is really nice. Denimbro is not as coal miner as it used to be, but that place is dead anyway and really has been for quite some time. The elitist snobbery really went too far during the final Denimbro and it hasn't gotten any better since. Instagram was my least favorite in terms of aesthetic until I found some dudes with some really good style that don't just do the standard IG thing. Skinny jeans made by some random brand that will be dead in a year, 3Sixteen shirts and jackets, Chup socks, and boots from Truman and Red Wing are all you need. Still, the general quality of photo is better on there and the community is the only one that has really made me friends in real life (aside from @itsbenhere ) so I like it anyway. I actually really dig the Sandlot look, personally. I wear sneakers a lot now, even if I don't take pictures of them as much. I don't even know what my style is exactly. Probably "late 1940's wannabe" and I'm just fine with that. I'm happy to cosplay because I know that I, not anyone else, will ever actually look or be as cool as @volvo240thebest is.

    Yeah this pricing is pretty intense. When I bought my 2 custom pairs of Clinch, they were a lot less money than they are on this website. I am so glad I ordered when I did.

    Have you talked to Brian at Role Club? He isn't cheap, but he's very good. I think he would do that work. If you're willing to go outside the US, I'd give Dr. Sole a try
  11. Shoes that look better with age...

    I only just tried them on! I'm showing them to some friends tomorrow and then I'll start wearing them. Yes, but then I won't have the pleasure of breaking them in myself and I can't have that Yes, a lot of his customers spec some very... interesting boots. I went with one of the most understated combinations that I could while still maintaining his signature style. I will definitely make sure these get the proper attention. Will do! You have to go to his shop to order. In person meetings are a requirement for his boots, but he is an extremely kind and gracious host. He is very easy to communicate with otherwise. He actually has fairly decent English to boot.

    I received my White Kloud boots today. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is ridiculous. They are even better than my Clinch and Role Club boots, making them the best work boots in the world. It's not easy to get a pair, but if you ever have the chance to go to Goto-San's workshop to be measured for a pair, it's worth it. A full write up will be on my website eventually. I'm taking some time to bask in the greatness of these boots first.
  13. The Leather Jacket Thread

    Thanks! This is the most intricately constructed one yet.
  14. The Leather Jacket Thread

    Thanks very much! I'm quite happy with it

    Now all I need is better weather...
