  1. Drying off with a fine towel is like a hug from one's guardian angel.
  2. No. I don't. I'm sorry if the photo implied that. For the shoes pictured I just use the one on the left. The other items were bought to use with different shoes & boots.

    Nice Things

    I have a set of those that belonged to my parents. They probably had them before I was born. After my parents passed away one of the neighbors was lusting after them. No fucking way! They came back to the US with me.
  4. Yeah. I feel like LVC promises much but rarely delivers.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    mpukeas ^ That's very unfortunate. He should have taken care of that issue. My experience was better. With the boots there is feelable ridge inside where the heel meets the front part but after a few minutes of wearing I become unaware of it. I also had a pair of Paraboot Loafers resoled by Brian & the work was perfect.

    I have. A while back. Let me see if I can track down the pics.
  7. You'll have to go with a polish to cover up scuffs & scratches. A cobbler friend of mine recently sold me some products by Saphir. He feels they make the best polish. They make various versions that yield more or less shine dependent on the wax content. The one on the left is 'high gloss'. I use it on my White's.

    Here you go, Buler. I'll make a post in belt section at some point. I think the guy did a nice job with the carving on the leather.

    WW2 repro / detailed jeans

    Agreed. The older LVC 44s are definitely the best thing of theirs I've owned.
  11. Having attempted a bit of darning on my TCBs I found there was a fine line between under & overdoing it. I prefer going as light as possible & then adding/touching up as needed. Of course that's only practical if one is doing the work themselves.

    Happy jeans: TCBxSufu S40s WW2 contest thread

    Yeah! It's been great! I've really enjoyed interacting with all of you who participated here. Congrats to the winners. I for one will gladly buy another pair when they become available. Frankly the fit has spoiled me for all other jeans lol.
  15. Is anyone else having trouble with the functionality of the site? Recently it's been taking a very long time for pages to load completely. I've tried different browsers but the problem persists...

    Bigger cotter pins perhaps? Available at most hardware stores.

    @spidereye I think that hardware is based on vintage policeman's braces. You can find them occasionally on ebay. That's where I got mine.

    @spidereye Ah, I see what you meant now. Good luck with your search for the hardware.

    The ones in the picture are by Bronson. They look nice & appear to be available. If you want something a little more exotic the Danish brand 'For Holding Up The Trousers' make some very cool braces. @forholdingupthetrousers

    You might want to try suspenders/braces. I find looser fits hang differently when worn with those.

    That surprises me. I have a pair of Full Counts from S&S, 1110s I think & they're not short. I'm 6' 2" btw. Correction - they're 1101s (35x36). Maybe not the cut you're after.

    Those chambray jeans are cool. I'd definitely buy a pair if I could find in my size.
