So I'm stuck between these red/black velvet vans x supreme and these black&navy suede eytys price is the same. I know they're quite a bit different but it's either or for me, unless I magically gained another 120 in my pocket(I still wouldn't buy both but w/e).
Edit: actually does anyone know if those eytys come with the waxed black laces?

I ordered this jacket (https://akindofguise.com/product/bagsh- ... dark-navy/) and they sent me this one (https://akindofguise.com/product/burged ... dark-navy/) instead!! And now the first one is sold out! Should I ask for a refund or accept this as a happy accident?

which parkas have "stealth pockets" (is there a name for them)--little slanted openings under the bottom pockets you can stick your hands in sideways? like

edit they're called handwarmer pockets in case anyone was wondering

i love them so much

I think that it is not. Cowichan, etc., If you prefer a thick knit, how about you? It is cool there is atmosphere!

Mid-heavyweight shirts with pockets like this?

This one is from Tender but is pretty far out of my price range, thanks.

Looking for some classic running sneaks, though I'm a little fussy. Essentially the Nike Deconstruct's with:

- Light-Mid Grey Suede all over, no mesh.
- No or very minimal branding
- Tread on sole for winter
- Not too chunky

Nike Deconstructs

Any where I should be looking?

Update re: shoes
After actually trying on all these I've decided to go with the superstars and slips.
FTC is really cool too but for the same price I could get both of the above and I feel like my cons fill a similar role to the ftc
Pics coming soon

I'm looking for a pair of black derbies and I have wide feet. I tried on Rafs and they were half a size too long. I found a used pair one size down that have purportedly been "worn once" for a decent price. Meanwhile there's a pair of new Dries I bookmarked that just went to 60% off and cheaper than the Rafs. The Rafs look a bit better, I like the shape more. The Dries are okay, I was told they fit narrow, but leather will stretch. They also come in the half size that's my true size. The third option is a pair of Solovairs. They would be the best value and would also save me the topy cost. I have a pair of MHLxSolovair boots and the construction seem solid. They're not as hip, but have a wider last.

@Copeland Why not DM 1461s? You can get them without the yellow contrast stitching. If not, then the Solovairs, but I've never had any problem with Dr Martens + they're cut wide!

@copeland my feet are pretty wide and rafs sized down one fit me quite well. (i have a slight problem with the vamp (?) pressing on my forefoot, but think this should loosen up with wear). might be worth trying the pair you're looking at, definitely my favourite shoe

@bels do you say to get rid of them because I have another pair in beige, or it wouldn't matter if I had only these black ones?

Because you have two pairs. The black ones are pretty cromulent on their own.

COS jogging trousers? Not usually a fan of sweatpant trousers nor ribbed elastic cuffs but they seem comfortable and go with a bunch of stuff.

Image

or Schneider trousers, elastic waistband but regular hem

i've been wanting af1s or any such chunky sneaker option lately; this exact model would be easiest to get but those stars on the heel kind of throw me off. iunno overall. think it's alright but also????

Looking for options similar to this sandro T shirt that's sold out, I have turtlenecks but ideally looking for something to lay under a button down so a little bit lighter.

The second a thousand times. The first shoes are a wack ass re release and therefore conceptually weak.

I've been on the hunt for a pair of heavily-tapered non-denim trousers for a while. I'm thinking along the lines of many of the SISP SS16 and And Wander SS16 pieces. Fokken's cargo joggers also come to mind, as do Snowman's… well, pretty much all of his pants.

My problem is I really can't drop more than $100 with my budget as tight as it is. Any suggestions?

Ok so I actually want pink vans and I have a $25 coupon to Zappos. Maybe it's just the "palewave" hype getting to me but that's ok. So someone please help me pick between these two.

Thanks!
Yes I didn't update my message but I did find what I was looking for from Peir. It is from ss16 (she has some left in the studio and the collection will be avail at HN beginning of April)

I don't think aw16 is available yet. Preorders just went live so delivery will take at least 3 months

yeah i saw the HN thing on her instagram, that's good for her. i rarely visit HN but the mix of brands is always quite odd- i get the feeling the buyers try to smuggle in things they like (MMM, dries, rick, now peir) amidst what sells to their clientele- wealthy young bankers and ashley cole types.
so the shirt is dark navy? i want something that will go with black trou.
