Hi, this is my first post and I’m very excited to share with you guys about my latest boot purchase. I found these a few days ago on White's website under "Limited Series." It was Father’s Day weekend and White’s was running a sale! The Okanogan, which is new-or at least new to me, fits what I was looking for in a knock around boot for everyday work or short hikes.
I'm relatively new to PNW bookmakers yet I do have a couple of White’s MP's and the Americana by Nicks Boots. These Okanogan's might just be my favorite boots ever. For the past 5 years I've practically lived in a pair of RW heritage roughout/suede boots, model 2947. Like the Okanogan’s, they are six inch roughout boots with a soft toe and a Vibram outsole. I've been looking for something a little more substantial to re... keep reading on reddit ➡

I’ve noticed that Coco’s GD 4.0 and other batches have a lighter suede color than retail. I’ve seen online how coconut oil, beeswax, and suede dyes all can darken suede. Does anyone know of a certain method that yields the best results or has anyone even tried any of these things?

Over the winter I was obsessed with all the results from the last few AE shell trunk shows and was ready to put some money down on green shell First Ave boots, but sadly (I thought) this years first trunk show was for suede shoes. But I live within walking distance of the NYC shop that gets the trunk shows, and had nothing to do on that Saturday so decided to just see what the trunk shows were like.
The associates there were really nice and let me just look around for an hour, eyeing all the different suedes and dainite colors. I had always... keep reading on reddit ➡

Pulled the trigger on these J Crew loafers after finding out that Grant Stone manufactured them for a long time. I managed to get them for the crazy price of $75 during J Crew's overlap sale!
Background + Purchase
A bit of an interesting story with these loafers. I was scrolling around J Crew's website a couple weeks ago and I stumbled across these Ludlow loafers. I've seen mixed reviews about them in the past, but I was impressed with the materials being used. I decided to research them some more, and found out that J Crew was having Grant Stone assemble the Ludlow shoes at their factory in China, using materials sourced from the US... keep reading on reddit ➡
Banana Republic is having a 60% off sale on all sale items, making this jacket a fantastic deal. Gap/old navy/banana republic gift cards are 20% off right now on ebay as well, effectively making this jacket $27.50, nearly 90% off from it's original price of $240! This item was somehow hidden from both sale and final sale sections of the website. https://bananarepublic.gapcanada.ca/browse/product.do?pid=4914240030002&cid=&locale=en_CA#pdp-page-content
I didn't know whether I liked loafers or not, but my first pair confirmed it, I actually love loafers. Let's check out this pair from Meermin to see if they're as good as they look.

Dark chocolate. Sexy, delicious, dark chocolate. That's what these brown suede loafers from Meermin remind me of. The suede is a deep brown that has a few different hues shine through when the light hits it.

Okay so I have never gotten a pair of reps before but I've always wanted to get the TS1 w/o spending $1400 so I did and impulse by on the first pair I really found and got these:
OGTony GQ batch - https://imgur.com/a/KH5nxMa
But then got a lot of comments in my QC post about flaws with the 3m and the embossing, which don't really seems like a big deal to me no one is running at my shoes with a pic of some retails. But the color of the suede seems really good and on point. But everyone told me to RL and go with Coco's GD 4.0 batch and then got these QC:
Coco GD 4.0 - https://imgur.com/a/pabXTqC
This pair looked really good with the exception of some stitching on the back of the left shoe which is no problem to me at all... BUT the suede seem completely dead and the color looks like a completely shade of brown.
So in the end my thought is it really worth trading the color of the shoe for the fixes in the minor flaws like the 3m or a lower swoosh?
Hi! I'm iso those protective sleeves that come outside tom ford quads and chanel quads. I'm organizing my collection and I don't like the incongruity of some having sleeves and other not! I want them all sleeved. If you're someone who throws them away, I would like to buy them off you (paypal g&s). Thank you so much!
Pretty decent color and size selection for Sierra.
EDIT: Here's a link to all Chippewa, Red Wing, and Lucchese items on Sierra, lots of good deals if you can find something in your size:
The Milfords just showed up with a good selection hence I decided to post them.
Suede brush really helped make the suede look more alive. I didn’t spend too much time messing with the embossing. What do y’all think?
Batch: GD4.0 W2C: cocosneakers dot ru
Got these on sale for $AU415. It's a suede Craftsman in the leather sole.
I have a very normal foot and consistently wear a UK9 and US10 in normal width. I prefer a snug fit. I took these in a 9G and would say the sizing is right where it needs to be. It's a little snug but should ease up a bit as I wear into the footbed.
It's a very comfortable boot. Like a leather sock. The support is good.
The suede is nice. Not excellent but at this price I wasn't expecting flawless suede. The nap is fairly tight but it lacks that lustre that my Edward Greens have.
The stitching and clicking is all on point. Part of the welt didn't have even colour coverage but I applied some dark brown cream to those parts.
The reason I bought these is that as an Australian I felt compelled to support the last real bookmaker. It's very iconic.
I am a big fan of the silhouette and the wholecut design.... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just went back to look at the GQ version Trav 1’s from Tony and I noticed the suede looked darker than it normally would be, thoughts??
Not sure if anyone was waiting on these, but it seems they got restocked with all sizes being available! They are easily my favorite boots and I get compliments every time I wear them.
With the 30% off deal going on, they are a steal for that quality of boot. ⚡️
For you NYC UberEats Drivers, if you ever get a job for “Suede Restaurant”, decline it immediately. I don’t normally bash restaurants, even when they mess up, but this restaurant is completely neglectful to their UberEats drivers. Not only is the wait time disrespectfully excessive(45 minutes to over an hour), you may also be told that they, quote, “did not receive the order so there’s nothing they can do, so cancel it”, which means you waited for no reason. This is not to mention that they commonly do not have certain products which were ordered, and will argue with you if you even THINK of being irritated about it.
To top it off, even during this pandemic, many of the employees have no face masks on, and joke around while you’re standing waiting patiently for your order.
So for the sake of your time, money, and sanity, decline this restaurant until they get their act together and respect the drivers that help them make their money.

Hello! This is my first post and it will be a beginning review on my first Goodyear Welted shoes from Meermin Mallorca.
These shoes are $195 and with shipping came out to be about $210.
They are designed and finished in Mallorca, Spain, but crafted in Shanghai, China. The shoes shipped from their New York store though and came to Texas, arriving quite quick. I was very excited to finally put my hands on them as they are my first quality, Goodyear Welted shoes, and my first step to my Sartorial journey! Let’s see how they’ll hold up...
So what type of shoe are they?
Coming from their classic line, I have a pair of suede unlined tassel loafers in Alicante Dark Brown on the HIRO last.
The shoes are again, Goodyear Welted with a blind stitch and have a leather/rubber heel toplift with decorative nails too.

Goods First: Album.
Going to keep this one nice and short as you can look at any other Craftsman/Turnout impression for the same info. This pair of boots have been on a bit of a trip around the world - they recently popped up at 50% off on Nordstrom in a RTW seasonal colour that I hadn't seen before, and were a clearance on the last pair which happened to be my size. RMW's standard non-seasonal suede offerings are a little bland in my opinion so this felt like an excellent opportunity.
These are my first pair of Turnouts as I generally wear the chisel-toed Craftsman. The slightly rounder toe still looks great and makes these a little more casual, which suits suede and this aesthetic really well in my opinion.
USD$250 plus tax/shipping to Australia, which ending up costing me just under AUD$490 - good price but nothing spectacular here in Australia as we're kind of spoilt with resellers, but since they're a bit unique I decided I'd commit.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Has anyone purchased these skates from Urban Outfitters? Did you get your skates and did it ship when expected? I purchased them in clementine size 5 on June 20th and was given July 6th as a delivery date but have not received any shipping info. I checked out the skates availability (as a new customer) on the site two days ago and they stated “expected by Aug 30th” and now they’re not on the site at all. I’m sure they were taken off the site because they’re “exclusive” but still. My order still states July 6th but I’m skeptical. I’m just excited to skate and wanted to see if anyone else has tried/ gotten skates from UO recently. Thanks!

Matches has these Cheaney suede Chelseas in British tan for $200 at 50% off. Quite a few sizes left. Seems like a pretty good deal to me, can anyone comment?
They also have 40%-60% off Cheaney, Church's, and Tricker's.
22 years old, so I should know better. Obviously I had heard some of their songs before. But recently I cancelled Spotify subscription so to listen to music I've been watching the full music videos, which has sent me down a 'britpop' rabbit hole. I can't believe I've only just discovered Charmless man, Beetlebum, the Universal(apart from on adverts) Along with Suedes Trash and Beautiful ones. Thing is I know I've only scratched the surface
What's the final verdict on a serious note.
