Anyone have experience on how to size W+H footwear? they have a cm measurement but I'm not sure if that's the outersole or what.

edit: I'm an 8 in vans... 7.5/8 in New Balance... 7 in red wings... 8 in Nike. If that provides any helpful indicator. since I'm mostly a half size I'm not sure which direction to go.

denimbros aren't really streetwear at all.

W+H sneaks are same as CPs. I sized down once.

Any recommendations for casual dress shoes/boots? I'm pretty sure I've heard Clarks are great, but these shoes look kind of funny... don't know if I'll like them. Also, are they TTS?

Actually, quite like the look of these too: http://www.revolveclothing.com/clarks-o ... Z6/?d=Mens

Loved my pair of light brown Julius Marlow chukkas, but they're falling apart now.

Similar to my last question, does Uniqlo restock pants throughout the season? I wanted the cropped chinos in black but they're out of 30 :(

what is japanese fast fashion like? we see all those cool and unconventional outfits from streetwear blogs and the like but what is their status quo like? what do they take from in the development of trends? what are the trends? what is developing to be a new trend? i can't imagine every japanese person is dressed in the relatively expensive brands we see displayed in most fashion forums.

I'm a 42 in CPs and I went down to 9. most people go down 0.5 or 1 from their brannock size. if you're near a red wing store I'd suggest trying to try some on.

Alright, got a challenge for y'all.

I'm looking for a very specific pair of jeans. Key features include:

- light wash (or dark if it's cool enough)
- button fly
- very roomy top block
- slight taper, not extreme
- range of movement; need to be able to move any which way I want them to

Levi's 501 is too small in every size that isn't comical in the waist and 550 & 560 are better but the cut is off in a way that I have difficulty describing. I figure I should own at least one pair of jeans but I haven't been able to find anything like this yet.

Any takers?

MKI. Does it get the c-t.org seal of approval?

Pretty sure I remember @hirokinakamura owning one of their baseball jersey's. A lot of their stuff is real nice and their general aesthetic is appealing to me.

Nope not even close. I've owned a few, and really since there isnt much detail that they add besides a locker loop, youre paying $185 for their special fabrics and their cut. Its fine if you really like their cuts, and I wont deny that they have some unique prints, but at the $185 pricepoint, you could just go MTM at Luzire or something instead.

I think anything under $100 is fair game, rarely see anything above $120 for them anyways. I've gotten all of mine for $60 or less so just be patient and you could find them for around there.

Can anyone help me find a plain, black, lightweight (spring/fall) jacket similar to this one from Norse but under $150?

Fairly open to materials, and buttons instead of a zipper might be cool too. I doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to find but I'm seeing absolutely nothing.

I would prefer something that isn't shiny, thanks though. Always hesitant about American Apparel.

I'd say they run a little large. I'm usually a 29/30 and 28s fit me pretty well

I have a pair of 513s in scraper dark. Some kind of pseudo-raw offering. The legs shrunk a bit. Could I unstitch the hem to add length? Is this a bad idea or a difficult task?

I have no idea how to care for long hair...

I found my first split end i think? are these normal? I go about 2 weeks between shampoos and apply moroccan oil as i feel needed (1-2 times a week).

Id do no poo but i live in a super dry area and if i dont shampoo my scalp starts flake.

is there anything special i should be doing or thats common knowledge?
