How uncomfortable are docs right off the bat? I got size 6 like I was recommended but these seem a little bit on the small side, not sure if I'm just not used to the discomfort.

I wear a size 8 in vans which is a UK 7 and I got the size 6, I think I'm going to return and get a 7. Don't want to risk it.

quick q guys

what styles of winter coats would look good with my current wardrobe? i'm hard pressed for ideas, and nothing i have at the current moment is good enough for chicago winters, which, judging by last year, aren't afraid to regularly dip below 0 degrees (fahrenheit)

Any recommendations regarding jackets/coats with cool pockets? e.g. Acronym and the chest pockets. not saying it has to be at a weird angle, but I like that it was centered and not just a breast pocket.

Also, no pocket required, but anyone making any good white outerwear this season? Mens or womens, looking for me and potentially christmas for the missus. <=google chrome doesn't think that's a word. I wanted to get that cool OL white pullover with the drawstring, but couldn't afford it at the start of the season and it was gone fast. Digging Supreme's White N-2B(3B??), but I'm a small so I don't think that will happen.

Rec me brands, pieces, etc. Thanks (smiling)

I have (somewhat dark) blond hair and blue eyes and I rarely see good fashion photos, whether streetstyle or otherwise, with people who have the same skin tone or whatever it's called. Everything I have found in the category seems to be a fairly blandly dressed guy in a well fitted jean jacket or suit with a blue button-down. I was wondering if anyone has any good ones lying around in their comp they could share, or places where I might go to find stuff like this that show color used well on blue eyed blond people?

I'm trying to learn to better use colors that fit with my skin tone. Esp. beyond basics like blue jeans and a white tee, or a blue button down. Help please

Two relevant threads that pop yo mind are

and

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=207&hilit=uniform

Some artics in both of them.

Lately I've been toying with the idea of getting some sort of slp-esque biker pants to mix up just wearing my black jeans and leather jacket. Though I can't drop 1.5k on a pair from slp.

Image

Are there any options in a price range like $100 - 200? Or is that just not feasible. Looking for a skinny cut, like 510's. I know luxire will do basically whatever you want but I imagine there are just some design elements of having zipped knees that take some trial and error unless they've already done some stuff like it. Waxed denim is fine too but I imagine that'd be even more $$$. Doesn't have to have the quilted leather (in fact I prefer no leather in a pair of jeans that cheap it'd probably be junky), or even the knee zips. Just interested in a pair of more aggressive black jeans, open to any ideas if you guys have seen anything you like.

Any sweatpants that stack well? Maybe like those curved seam pants that SZ people like? Does this question even make sense?

Maybe I'll try to make them at some point (probably not)

How waterproof are New OGs on a bike?

My Levi commuters tend to bead water around the calf, but the thigh saturates straight through in anything but minor showers.

Hender Schemes in size 3? I found some on rakuten in size 3 (which should be US 8 afaik) but I haven't seen them listed with that size anywhere else so I'm kind of concerned. They're only $375 too, never used rak before but I've never heard a lot about scams on it.

e:
They're the vans model, to be specific. MIP-04

Same seller that @smiles got his from, might sit on the idea of getting these for a couple weeks and see if I still want them.

Question related to Rakuten, when I search a designer that is two words it gives me everything that has either of the two words in it. Like "White Mountaineering" will give me everything listed with just "white" in the title so I get tons of irrelevant results
how do i get around that?
