Thread: Frequently Asked (Inane) questions

    Default

    quiet noise's recent purchase of an obscur leather jacket has piqued my interest in obscur's leather jackets again, is anyone particularly familiar with the leather jackets that they have produced?

    I'm aware of the following:
    - SS08 washed leather jacket with straight and curved zip




    - SS09 washed leather high collar jacket with straight and curved zip





    - SS09 hook closure leather jacket


    - FW09 tri-zip leather jacket with detachable vampire collar

    Inane question 1:
    Regarding CCP:
    24 out of 38 (or whatever) means that 38 of that particular size was made?
    38 of a piece sounds like a very slim number even by CCP standards?
    Q. 2:
    How is it possible to spell label incorrectly on boot?
    Carol Cristian, without h?
    And continue doing it over years....
    It's got to be done deliberately.

    what sort of boots do you guys wear when it's rainy and miserable outside? don't like the thought of ruining expensive boots in the wet, was considering picking up some cheap boots as beaters for when the weather sucks.

    another inane question, what is the distinction between a work boot and a combat boot? to use the barney's webstore as an example, these butteros are listed as work boots while these boots are listed as combat boots despite a similar height and general silhouette.

    $173.

    More seriously, I think that in "fashion" boots, it is mostly a matter of marketing, but if there is a consistent difference, combat boots tend to have a higher and narrower shaft.

    Get a pair of Moma boots or URoads from Yoox.

    not sure if i should be in small questions or inane questions, but i'm willing to bet many of you will consider this an inane question

    i was looking at the drkshdw jeans on yoox and it has made me start wondering about the inseams. do they come in different inseam lengths? even if they aren't tagged as such? some look long and others look pretty short. also, i know the detroit is slim and the berlin is a little fuller, but is there another fit? a couple of those pairs look really full. thanks.

    somehow yoox makes everything look a little bit crappy

    thanks for the advice Faust, I've been watching Yoox for Moma boots but they don't have a style I like in my size atm. how does sizing run on their boots?

    This question should might be in the small questions thread.

    Didn't we have a "shoe care"-thread? I'm going to get my ccp derbys soon and have some small questions about the care of them.

    I though about buying a ceder-shoeblock. But there seems to be different ones to buy if you are going to have shoes with pointy toes or not.

    Also if you guys usually use wax/polish/etc. on them.

    1. That is the total number of that item made for that batch for that season. Excludes custom/special orders or (as expected) orders made after that batch was completed. Certainly is very small for some pieces.

    2. Lots of speculation on this... but like the "SAFE" still printed on the soles, most likely a massive amount of leather soles were ordered and subsequently misspelled/misembossed. The soles have been used ever since and will probably be used until that batch has run out. Not to mention that "christian" and "cristian" are interchangeable in some parts of the world (Christ, Crist, Kirst, Kist, Kierst, Kryste, Chryste are but variations on a theme originating from Austria).

    This, in my opinion will ruin the 'wrinkles' in the toe box that CCP shoes are known for. Granted they somewhat smooth out over time I don't think it's worth it.
    Wax/polish for CCP is blasphemy.

    Echoed :)

    For "care" of my CCP bootsies I pretty much only use some Kiwi clear oil on them every so often and rubber sole them. Nothing else.

    After each day of wear I leave them unzipped and open overnight to help them dry/air out before I rezip them and put em away.
