    Glad to hear good words about the J62-S. Was really interested in picking it up but as normal, I was a bit slow and it sold out. I think next time instead of pondering the purchase I'll just have to pull the trigger. It's a hassle I always try to avoid but I can always return it

    There are some real interesting shoes in the coming SS season from Boris.

    Which Enfin Leve trouser is that? And what fabric did you opt for?

    The Mionn is a lot warmer. I wear a black Quoin pretty much everyday, it's a versatile piece you can dress it up a little or wear it casually. It's just a smart, minimal over shirt. It's warm but not amazingly so.

    I'm not a fan of how rounded that iteration of the free sole looks, that aside the shoe could be real good. Hopefully it comes in monotone colourway. It's essentially what I like in a sneaker, high, slim and lightweight. The reasons I'm such a fan of the mercurial flyknit and this time they've managed to finally make the Nike tick a little smaller.

    That'd be ideal. I can imagine once worn in and when the patina starts to develop it'll look really good. Sadly, I have to choose just one and I want a nice clean look when worn with tailoring. I guess the J46U is the one for me. BUT the J62-S is just so nice.

    I wear a UK10 in Nikes and went with a UK10 in these. They are snug and designed so but it wasn't enough for me to go half a size up. That said, I know quite a few people went half a size up. So I'd say definitely don't size down to the 41 and go with the 42. A thing to note is, (not sure if you know) but the sizing is a bit funky. The 41 is a 41 1/3 / UK7.5 / US8 and there's two 42's. A round 42 / UK8 / US8.5 or a 42 2/3 / UK8.5 / US9 so just be sure which 42 the retailer / individual is selling.

    Carl again with the answers. Thanks, appreciate it. I was convinced I wanted the J46U but having looked at pictures of the J62-S, I'm torn again. They both do the same job for me and are both very nice jackets. As someone who doesn't have too much experience with Stotz I may be wrong so feel free to correct me. One of my concerns with the J62-S is how it'll age, I'm assuming as it's Stotz it will fade with wear. Which will ruin the clean look for me, the reason I'm buying the jacket. However, the J62 will be slightly heavier and has the option of a hood. It also looks more structured than the J46U which could be more flattering when worn smart. Kind of talking to myself here. Decisions, decisions. Time to sit down and stare at pictures of both.

    Could anyone give me any info / input on the sizing of the J46U-WS? I'm 6ft2 (187cm) and wear a M in the J1A-GT, it is slim / snug but the L was just too big for me. M in the J56-GT also fits me well. I'm often between sizes in most pieces so stuck between going for M or L in this. If anyone has both the J46U and the J1A it'd be great to hear from you. I watched it last night and really enjoyed it. I don't know if I can say it was an amazing film but I thought it was really well done and a worthy sequel to the original. There's plenty still to explore in the BR world, they could quite easily make another film. It's a shame the GITS live action wasn't executed this well. I did really like the jacket K / Gosling was wearing. I need want one. It reminded me of the old Lang Astro jackets. Not sure if anyone is aware of this but it isn't actually made of leather as much as it looks like it. Interestingly, I believe it's made out of a laminated waxed cotton.

    CP (Achilles at least) I've found are far more comfortable than Converse and Vans. I wouldn't put them in the leagues of anything with a free sole or boost sole but I think CP's are actually pretty comfortable. I have a couple of pairs, I used a pair as an everyday beater for a while and had no complaints. Also, someone correct me if I'm wrong, the soles are quite different. CP's use a Margom sole, the standard for luxury footwear, which is more comfortable and harder wearing than the soles of Vans and Converse. Maybe not as many times better as people claim but definitely better. On the subject of low cut leather sneakers, maybe look at some leather runners instead? A few brands offer some good variations of this silhouette

    Extremely. Most anticipated film of the year for me, followed by Star Wars and John Wick. I've watched the three shorts but have avoided most of the trailers and any other promotional material. I'm intrigued to see just how well it will be done, I wonder if it will be as "ahead of its time" as the previous film. I find the older great cyberpunk / sci-fi films are much more timeless then newer films. If that makes sense? To the guy above, watch the first film before you head out to see the new one. I think you'll understand the in film world more after watching the first.

    I have a size EU40 / US7 available in the all black 11 by BBS x Salomons. They were on hold for a customer but it didn't work out.

    I know a few people were after the dyed 11 by BBS x Salomon sneakers, HBX has a few sizes in the tan colour way; https://hbx.com/brands/11-by-boris-bidjan-saberi/11-by-boris-bidjan-saberi-x-salomon-sneakers-1

    Explains why the images look familiar. I just thought it may have been a similarly shot campaign. I wondered why I couldn't find any more images when googling it

    For those that like the KMTR, an all black colour way;
