    Takes me five years, at least, to get mine primed:laugh2: ... my contest pairs “bloom” years after the contest ended.

    In that breath, peeps who want to be competitive do what they do, due to time constraints ... now,  a 5-yr competition, most peeps would be in a slow boat.

    Gotcha. I can understand that even if I don't subscribe to that mindset myself. My jeans take forever to fade too because of work and the fact that I like wearing chinos and trousers a lot too. I still just let it happen naturally. My CSF 37's definitely do not look like they have been my main jeans for almost 3 years by now, but I'm OK with that.

    I'm surprised to hear that folks actually have fading methods, i just wear the damn things and que sera sera.. i find that good fades often come from giving less of a fuck :D

    I think your fades are pretty strong proof of how well not having any special method works.

    I'm surprised people are still talking about using any special method at all during this era of vintage fade popularity. Do whatever you want of course, but I am surprised.

    70's low I go half size up from my normal chucks size, 70's high I go up 1, no issues. 

    Funny as the converse site says do the complete opposite, 

    That's good to know. Makes me more confused why so many people use Converse as a sizing comparison.

    Modern chucks are def narrow. 70s are wider BUT it does get pretty narrow at the toes so it actually hurts my pinky toe. I end up not sizing down a half size like most people recommend but even then it still rubs. I wish i could make them work. 

    Yeah I sized down by a half and now I think I should have just gone TTS. If I get 70s, that's probably what I'll do.

  5. Are all versions of Chucks so narrow? I got a pair of USA made Chucks from 2000 (I think) and they feel more narrow than my equivalent Chuck "copies" from Japanese brands and much more narrow than my PF Flyers. I'm wondering if the modern Chucks and 70s are the same way.

    Note, this is just for giggles. If it offends anyone affiliated with DB I’ll remove it. Don’t want any cross forum beef. 

    I participate in both and this is hilarious :D It's pretty accurate IMO. There is no question that this forum is simply more active, even for those like myself who still post on both. Doubt this would cause offense to anyone on both.

    If you want to be authentic Brad you’ll need to sport a Wrangler jacket dude!

    I will never be authentic Brad so I think I'll just stick with what I already have.

    Loved that Wrangler jacket, though.

    Far and away your best outfit yet - looks like you’re Really comfortable in those clothes

    Thanks very much Duke! Open short sleeve shirts are my favorite in the summer. Indeed very comfortable and easy to wear.

    Hair looks much better too dude, far less fussy than that slick style.

    Haha I cannot tell you how many people tell me that. I never agree, but clearly I'm the odd one out :D

    Dude’s cleaning up today. Face mask and sunglasses like a bandit too. Genuinely looks like you just stepped out of a Tarantino movie or something. 

    I had just watched "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" before taking this walk... the Hawaiian shirt was a deliberate choice after loving Brad Pitt's style in the film. I don't pull it off as well, but I love this shirt.

    as an uninvested observer [who hasn't tried on either] my choices would be:

    wesco: engineers

    lofgren: m43 / service boot and those monkey boots

    its a tie on donkey puncher vs. jobmaster tho...

    Yeah the jobmaster and punchers are both great... that's probably why I ended up with Onderhoud for my logger boots :P

    having worn neither I can't comment about anything...

    there are many moments where I could see myself choosing wesco over lofgren

    ... but not for chukkas ... lofgren is def. winning there ...


    I have both and I like both very much. There are definitely good reasons to buy both depending on the situation.

    Those new Wesco chukkas are an abomination though :D

    God Ed we get it, it’s almost like you can’t keep his name out of your mouth. I’ve never seen someone so obsessed with hating another man so much. If you don’t like his boots we get it, but you don’t have to comment literally every time his name is mentioned.

    Or bring him up when he isn't even mentioned.

    You're right mate... wrong word... hoping to not overpost... all good and thanks

    Not overposting either. The jacket looks absolutely amazing. Love seeing activity in this thread.

    The fades on the back under the yoke are especially cool.
