Tbf the N on the NB is a bit offputting. The swoosh less so. It's less offensive on certain shoes though. I would have liked allbirds but 95 dollars seems like too many dollars.

My hair has been a mess this year. I've had one hair cut in 2020 and I have no idea when I'll be able to get another. Probably when I go back to NY again.. in two and a half months. For Thanksgiving.

Skincare for me is mostly a non issue, beard care is a different story. I make my own beard grooming products though, so I'm obviously very happy with those.

Your plug was too subtle. How you gonna be a millionaire like this?

I'm also in the market for some casual kicks. I've been considering Allbirds but haven't pulled the trigger. Vans, Chucks, and Janoski's aren't comfortable to me. I've tried on several pairs.

I currently have these in rotation for daily abuse. I feel like this picture makes them seem even more obnoxious than they really are, lol.



For actual running shoes I've been wearing Brooks. Local company so that feels good... even if they're made all over the world.

Same. I don’t want anything that requires laces or tying, so I’m thinking slip ons / espadrilles. Had Janoski slips for awhile and liked them, but they’re a bit bulky. Really tempted by Cole Haans “cloudfeel” sneaker / loafers but “end of season” means basically no available sizes.

Slip on is nice for sure. I've tried a few different Sperry's on but realized I didn't own a boat so never pulled the trigger. The hard part is finding something that works well with both jeans and shorts. I really need a pair of casual boots now that we're about to hit fall again...

YES LET'S TALK ABOUT BOOTS.

I'll have to live vicariously through you, I can only wear mine two months a year now.

I think you like mocc toe right? Cole Haan has a few good looking options, as well as some penny style slip on sneakers. Also check out Cuater "Tracer" by Travis Matthew.

I ordered the ones I shared above. Cole Haan didn't have my size, but Zappos had it in stock and price matched.

Actual boots with lug soles or "boots"?

I'm not trying to actually wear some Lugz but there's a decent chance they'll have a lower profile lug sole. I've tried on several pairs of chukkas and I just cant get into how they look or feel. And I do prefer a moc toe but not an actual roofing boot.

Maybe it's time that I FULLY embrace the PNW and get some Romeos...

Chelsea boots are cool, but less so with lug soles. I much prefer these...





Chukkas also look terrible with lug soles. Again, similar to Chelsea, the point is to be more refined / dressy than outdoorsy. Lug soles look best with something that looks the part - a work boot like redwing, wolverine, etc.

White's might be made here, but Romeos are worn here. Like... everywhere here. It's alarming.

I don't mind Chelsea boots but I prefer something with a lace. Also considering a cap toe. Just did a quick search and these are a couple that caught my eye...





Keep in mind I want brown, possibly with a tiny hint of red, and casual. These are PNW everyday boots to be worn with jeans and hoodies.

I bought a pair of lugged chelsea boots last winter because I was looking for something nice that wouldn't get totally ruined by the elements. The lugs don't go all the way to the edges of the soles which helps quite a bit

^also seem to be shallower lugs than those boat anchors that JR posted
