small questions thread (use before making a new thread!)

Recommended Posts

So I'm just about to pull the trigger on some Clarks antiqued leather desert boots, but first I'd like to know how they wear. I've searched about and heard that the crepe soles get blackened and the leather itself darkens (unfavorably or favorably I don't know).

Does anyone have any experience, pics, or sites to help me out?

Thanks!

EDIT: how to care for leather boots is all over the internet, so does anyone want to share personal/specific remedies for clarks?

Looking for a charcoal/grey herringbone coat/jacket. I know J Crew has one on sale, but it's $300. I'm trying to stay under $150 if possible, under $100 would be great. There's a few H&Ms nearby, I'll check that out in a couple of days.

Considering copping this myself, kind of unusual but I love it.

First number is year: 4 = 2004.

Next two letters is season: EH = éte (summer), HH = hiver (winter).

i recently copped a pair of shoes a size too big (it was fucking cheap) online.

I wear size 8.0-8.5 in vans and these are the US equivalent of a 9.5.

I guess the only solution is to cop some insoles etc, but I don't really have any experience with these... and when I look online it's full of insoles which appear to be sports orientated?

Anyone got a cheap, easy solution? Surely a few of you guys have been in the same dilemma.

Help us out :)

Thx

I need a red gingham shirt. RL has one but im not a fan of the pony and i'd rather it has a pocket.

Similar to this JCrew one:

Buttondown or point collar doesnt matter

anyone know where to cop?
