Purechris, I'd pass. The last is weirdly wide. You might consider the Margiela slip ons that are done in a similar round toe but with just the distressed tan color - much more versatile (you could wear them more with black and denim without skewing brown), and maybe longer lasting than the brogue details, which are so on trend now they're definitely on their last legs.

Jeffrey has them, but they're pricey - $745. And yes, pointy toes have been wearing out their welcome with me for about a year now - if you have them, wear them out but don't buy any new ones. Even the gold, pressed-snake Helmuts I bought I only bought because they were the only metallics for men of that sort at the time, but I didn't care for the beak toes. Longer lasts like those of N.D.C. are better in that they're still a longer silhouette but with a more rounded toe, which is definitely where men's shoes are going. Women's shoes are already there, and just about ready to supplant the points entirely in a few seasons, IMHO.

If you go to Barneys, they have N.D.C. in the Coop now, as well as another brand I'm getting into, Jean Michel Cazabat (whose metallic python brogues I ordered because they're a rounder last!). N.D.C.'s own lasts are getting rounder for Fall as well.

Chris, Nay, for two reasons - aesthetical and practical.

1) They look USED. Now, I don't mind when you beat up a pair of shoes on your own, OR if they look like they have been beat up on purpose, sort of like CDiem ones. These just look like they came out of a dumpster, even though I know they are not (btw, knowing Margiela, I wouldn't be surprised if his version did come out of a dumpster, supplemented with a page-long postmodern ironic explanation as to why you should fork out $750 for them).

2) Look at the sole - it looks like it provides no support whatsoever. Considering that you walk half an hour to work and back and spend most of your day on your feet, these will kill you.

I had a great shopping trip in NYC and I've got the following pictures. What do you think?

The order is: Yohji Yamamoto coat worn in trench style. Is it too overwhelming?
Yohji Yamamoto coat (the same coat) worn in the way shown on runway. That piece was in a different store and it felt a lot bigger than the first one. It's bizarre...
Balenciaga military style coat. That one was one size bigger, I believe. Do I look like a Yohji person or a Balenciaga person???
Junya short jacket. It felt so different wearing it because the weight/gravity was special.

What do you guys think? as far as I know, that Balenciaga coat is not available anywhere in my size (36). People really buy expensive pieces at full price nowadays

The Junya jacket looks the best on you. If I were you, I would definitely get it. It also goes well with your hairstyle.

The Balenciaga looks OK, but to be honest, I really can't tell it's a Balenciaga just by looking at the pictures.

I don't like the Yohji one, it does overwhelm you, particularly when you expose the back side design. I think you need to be taller to carry it well. And you hairstyle doesn't go well with it either.

I saw her in both the Balenciaga and Yohji and I really couldn't decide. Her physique goes well with the Balenciaga style coats. But the Yohji one is so uber cool. She would be perfect in a 36 for the Balenciaga but its strage that the buyers only bought a size 38 for all the stores. =/

love it all! but to narrow it down... love the yohji and junya on you... the balenciaga looks too severe. the shapes of the yohji and junya suit you and your style... and you can play with it, mix and match more...

I agree that the Balenciaga would be hard to play around with, cuz its covering up everything and youll look the same everyday. But dang that yohji coat is sweet.
