11 days ago I pulled the dumbest, dipshit boneheaded move while less than sober and ordered a pair of new Lazy Mocs from MMM. :ugh:

I told myself I'd order and forget it, that they'd show when they'd show and hopefully it would be less than the zero-communication two month wait I endured last time, and fuck it fuck it - Fuck it. Sure enough there's been nothing since. The card is charged without order verification, and it does show in their Shopify system when I log in but with the "unfulfilled" label, which will likely stay that way until the shoes show up at my door. In winter 2021.

Just going to have to put this one out of my head and forget about 'em as a potentially torched $275, especially if they arrive with any problems. :rofl:

Looks amazing though. Where are you?

Yeesh. No clue how I didn't see this at the time but when I made that post we were just about to hit St. Thomas, which was a slummy horror show compared to when I was last there in 2009, and then St. Martin which was even worse. But I had this on the UE Megaboom so it could have been worse.



It may be old, but it's still my new shit! :big grin:

I mean fuck, man. Why can't they just not suck? The product is so good, good enough to to have me spending more money with their untrustworthy/unreliable fuckhead asses and it's such a shame that they cannot even provide a modicum of customer service. In the end I'm the fucking idiot for doing more business with them and have brought whatever calamity/fiasco that's coming down onto myself. :dunno:

i want this but can't justify spending 375 bills on it

not boots but expensive style bullshit thread so here

https://railcarfinegoods.com/collections/chore-coats

and

https://railcarfinegoods.com/collections/deuce-jackets

I'll put Railcar's coats right there with Raleigh's at a much lower price point. I have this one:

And it's built like a tank. I'd wear it if I hadn't mis-sized and the shoulders had any chance of fitting. :sad2:

Lol I used to live in everlane, have a couple of their duffles around here for weekend trips.. I need to drop some weight, have no joke 30+ pair of epaulet unfinished hem pants and shirts, and a grip of RRL I grabbed back when they were still sending everything to Woodbury outlets. No chance I fit any with this IPA belly :hsd:

I’ve been meaning to check out everlane as I’m trying to make some effort that my clothes are ethically sourced. Maybe put together an order this weekend

Those lazy Mocs are never going to arrive

I will bet that they get delivered some day, but it will be months from now. I'm not even wasting my time trying to contact them as I'd rather find something else to do for frustration.

Worse, there's a chance I'll be living in Milan for three months in the very near future, so they will assuredly be delivered while I am there.

:cool: that seems like a worthwhile reason to never see
Them.

Are your lazy Mocs crepe sole'd? Cause i just got an email response from the owner that they're not doing resoles right now :hsd:

guess I'll just blow the soles out this year and toss them, or buy a couple crepe sheets and find someone willing to give it a go. I lived in those things all last summer :wtc:
