…they don't look that much wider than some achilles on eazys pic?
Cool pickups mate



Shitty angle but snapped this today. Prefer them over achilles, not too boxy nor slim. These are the exact ones eazy got.

I've got both but prefer the bballs, because I think they're more casual.
Achilles I tend to wear a bit more dressed up.
I noticed the squeaking as well, thought it'd go when the leather wears in a bit?

Yeah I would swede if you plan on wearing them with shorts, thin socks. I took them photos for mob in summer and 42's are too big for me so its a 2 pair of socks job in the colder months with jeans for me, still look mint though would defo recommend.

got the usual well known books. last few i have read are 'the book of jokes' by the momus (very dark humour), 'the sisters brothers' (western) and 'the man who was thursday'.

no, it is the moleskin version. I have the serge wool from last winter that i regularly wear and it is a mid weight jacket. similar to uniqlo flannel blazers but the fabric is a lot better
