Is there a better short than baggies (5")? You can't really carry anything in the font pockets without looking ridiculous but otherwise they are hard to beat.

This also serves as your reminder that if you want to get a good color and not some ugly graphic you should buy before May because all the good colors will be sold out.

as someone who has never been tan, I love maroon shorts.

when I was 14 or so, my brother was legitimately upset at me for getting the pair of chubbies [5.5" inseam shorts that are meant to instill a middle-american fraternity ethos in the wearer] that were a rich, dark maroon, "the bloodhounds" they had termed them; the company I think only made shorts in an earth tone as a novelty, a self-defeating proposition reliant on caring about the brand, like "jeep sedan."

am i the only one who finds the fact that baggies have a mesh liner to be a dealbreaker?

Wish that more minimal white trainers would go for the GAT look rather than the cp achilles copycat route, the latter looks too flat and ducky and doesn't really work as well in a more dressed up outfit despite being more minimal (imo at least). Hard to find an alternative that strikes the balance of being clean enough to wear with a casual suit™ while still having some visual dynamism to them.

My Adidas ones are on their last legs and the only thing resembling the design and easily available in the UK is the Novesta gat they're so narrow they physically hurt to wear and the OG gat always looked a bit stubby and unrefined to me. The MMM replicas really have the look perfected but I dread the psychic damage that I would receive from scuffing £300 white shoes in the club.

Maybe I should just get ripped off and cop the Adidas ones again off Korean eBay for £112, or move on from the mid 2010s and accept the march of progress.

Only one I can find is still like £180, at that point I may as well wait for MMM on sale.

My MFA poisoned brain always recoiled from the branding on the side but tbh this could just be the answer under my nose, cheap enough to double up with a total beater pair. Would be good with a lighter sole but it looks like that kind of design should come around sonnet or later. Will look into safely removing the stripes, good idea @_Organism.

Flashbacks to MFA circa 2011

___________mad stacks bro
___________________________________________This is such a great look, but I personally think it would look better with just one or two cuffs, rather than going all the way up to mid calf
____whats with the no sock thing, your shoes must stink real bad

______________________why does everyone look like they're wading through water? is that what "fashion" is now?

A real pant leg is never too high, mr Frodo, nor is it too low. it ends precisely where it intends to

Why doesn't comfy outdoor garment have more traction with The Fashion Folx?

edit: we do know we're talking about the brand Comfy Outdoor Garment, right? http://losthills-store.jp/
