I've always wanted a pair, but I realized that because of how they lace up, they'd be right against my shin and look weird. the wolverines, however, would let you stack your jeans on them

Those shoes pictured above (I guess they're red wings) are ugly. I can't believe anyone would pay good money for anything with a hideous sole like that.

The loafers I got are super versatile. Nothing grandpa or yacht about them although they probably are aimed at an older demographic than you. I need to get some tongue pads though and see if that helps with the heel slippage.

IRs are definitely very tight up through the ankle. I basically gave up trying to stack with them, even when I rig a slight tuck, it just doesn't work.

oh u didnt....

vibrams look like crap on the doc martin style on the last page for sure they clash, Love the look of them on my 877's though:

[insert post which i was going to make a week ago]

so i'm onto about the 5th oil in about 5 months. Had them out in the sun this past weekend for about 30 minutes then oiled them, it's hard to tell from the picture but the color of the leather now is more dark chocolate than the original red leather color, they are coming along pretty ****in sweet:



out of the box brand new:



hmm didnt realize the contrast in pictures isnt great, but when i saw them once the oil had sunk in i was like "wow wtff.. is that dark"

also while i was at it oiled the natural leather belt i picked up a while back, again the Patina doesnt come across in pictures too well but i was surprised how much is sucked in and the change that occured, hope the belt lasts long enough to see a real dark patina come in

fresh from the store:



currently:

Vibram is just a sole manufacturer, vibram soled shoes come in about a half billion designs, they don't have a specific style.

I know you are talking about that sole in the above picture, but i guess with my experience with vibram in terms of sport/work-related shoes it struck me odd to call that a "vibram sole" as if it was a specific design, seems more to me like an ungodly thick sole that just happens to be made by vibram.

I'm right there with you but I understood what he meant. My AE Malverns have a Vibram sole and it looks nothing like that one. It's the black one with the circles for grip.

There was a pair of BR I was wearing today that I could tell was a looser fit so I felt that those were flaring out.

i dont want to nit-pick too hard because overall the fits youve posted have been solid. maybe lacking in imagination, but cleanly executed. also, info on omega

those might just be how big his thighs are. i think his fits are great for an older, working, family man. better than most people dress

I think I see what you mean. It seems like the pockets flare out a bit but not sure what is causing that or how to prevent it. It obviously doesn't happen with jeans.

Edit: SURE is right. I do have big thighs which is why I can't wear slim fit pants. And yes, as someone in their 30's you might think it's unimaginative but I can't exactly go in to work (when I do actually have to go in) with bright colors or something flashy. At this age, you don't want to stand out for the wrong reasons.

It's not the pockets that are flaring out though.

Really simple today since I didn't feel like putting much thought in to it. Started out as the one on the left but it got warmer as the day went on and ended up as the one on the right. The thing I'm most proud of is how much I paid for everything. I love getting stuff on sale.



shirt - Uniqlo - $20
sweater - Lands End - $20
pants - JCrew Factory - $30-$35
shoes - AE Malvern - $125
