Nay, cos you'll walk in the boozer and your mates will say "where's R2D2?"

not so much a Yay/Nay, but


What is the build quality like on these/any pair of Jack Purcells? - I've had chuck taylors before and they are easily the most poorly made, low quality sneakers I've owned. Are Jack Purcells as bad as Chucks or nearer a like, vans level of quality?

I would not expect much from Cons or JPs in terms of quality, they are sourced at the lowest price possible so of course the quality is compromised.
One of my close mates used to be a product developer at Converse. I remember him saying they pay their Indonesian and Vietnamese factories less than 4 quid all-in for chuck lo's and constantly push them to improve on the price.

does he go in boozers though, thats the question?
we need a 'pub' thread to see what fukers never ever go in a pub, or if fuks do how many times a week or a month etc and do a list like the class thread.
that way we can make differing oipnions on peoples yay nays ot purcahses etc if they will never need to pass the 'pub test'.

on the shoes, like they style a lot, but the colours totally unwearble.

They're certainly not for the shy and retiring types.

Pair them with this.
