    This denim is slow fading, but very pretty. I dropped my pair off at a local tailor to fix the yoke and rear pocket, because I don’t own a sewing machine and I’m clumsy with my hands. I’ll do a proper update in a couple of months probably.

    Buzz Rickson

    I’m 5’10”/79kg, and also normally wear a western M and Japanese L. I have the Chambray in M, and it fits great, with the exception of the sleeves being just a bit short.
  4. Anyone have experience with either Buzz Rickson or Warehouse sweatshirts? I’m curious if or how much they shrink after being washed. My Strike Gold sweatshirt shrank nearly 4 inches, so I’m a little uncertain if I should size up or not with any other loopwheeled sweatshirts.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    @indigoeagle I agree that true to size is correct. I’m also a EU 44, I bought the Michael’s in 43.5, and they were painfully tight. The big toe on my left foot was also touching the front of the shoe. I exchanged them for a 44, and my toe was no longer touching the front, but the shoe was crushing the widest part of my foot. I was going to sell them, likely for a loss, until I read a review somewhere and the reviewer said the break in process was awful. After two weeks of regretting not just selling them because it seemed like they just didn’t fit and wouldn’t break in, they were suddenly comfortable. The left foot is still a wee bit more snug than the right, but it still feels pretty good. I’m surprised at how much the leather stretched- though the outsole breaking in may have had something to do with it, they had what seemed like no flex at all the first few days. I’m happy I stuck with them, I’m really starting to like them.

    ^Agreed. Two is the proper amount of cats per household.
  7. @unders I’m so glad Pig Destroyer is still making music at least. I haven’t been listening to as much metal as I get older, but I’ll never get tired of Scott Hull’s riffs.

  10. At 39 years of age, I’m just now learning that my left foot is bigger than my right. I bought a pair of Paraboot Michaels after trying on several pairs, and it seems the last just doesn’t work for me. After sizing up because my left toe touched the front of the first pair (I initially thought this to be a defective pair), and the second pair, I’m left with one shoe still being too tight, and the other nearly a 1/4 size too big. It’s interesting to me that no other last made this apparent to me before. Now that I pay attention, I realize that my left big toe ever so slightly touches the front of my Lofgren combat boots, though not enough to notice unless I pay close attention. Any Paraboot owners able to comment on how they break in? If they’ll stretch a bit, I’ll keep them, otherwise I’ll sell them on eBay or Grailed.
  11. “Death or Glory” is my all time favorite Clash song. The bass line for “Guns of Brixton” is so simple, but absolutely brilliant at the same time.

    @JMS I have the ‘47’s, and I find them to be true to waist size, and they’re capable of stretching too. They’re roomy, so I’d take the smaller of your two sizes. I have a pair of them in 32, and everything else I own is 32 as well (except for my Ooe)

  14. Where can I get a decent pair of suspenders? I’m on the fence about the Ooe mechanic overalls- I feel like I might as well go all out and make use of the suspender buttons if I get a pair (I can’t personally justify buying the pair if I just work around the suspender buttons) I’m still not certain this is a look I can pull off, I’ve passed on pairs of jeans/trousers in the past that had them. But damn, this pair of jeans is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while.
