I'm all about investing in timeless and less trendy fashion that you can wear for years without being outdated. Rocked this look last year too. I paired them with Timbs because I do have a slight urban style plus you can stuff like 2 inches of lifts in them to get a 3 inch overall boost from regular shoes. Going from 5'9" to 6'1" is immense. Regular black boots would fit GLLs without an urban vibe
Throwing a beanie on can turn classy into stylish casual. I feel like I get alot more looks in this than a regular guy rocking a casual hoody/sweater, but it also doesn't come off as trying too hard. Blue jeans, brown kicks, scarves - it goes with alot of things you throw at it and stands out more than the 15465 guys who wear black jackets when it's cold because they go with everything
You guys may think even at 50% off $114 is alot for a jacket, but i'd rather buy one high quality wool jacket i'll have for life then 5 $40 ones that i'll donate in a few years. Zara probably has some good outerwear too

@WoodisGood. Whats your opinion on shoes? Boots and kicks?
I've worn tan timbs to be more casual. Timbs are probably played out on the east coast, but out here they're less common so I go with them.
I like aldo for kicks with a little bit of class. I've gotten most of mine one sale in the 70-90 range. If you want to wear the classic pair of black boots you want to wear for years, a quality $200+ brand would hold up the best through weather and creasing. Aldos look good, but material isn't battle tested (any shoes under $100 aren't top grain leather)
Chris recommends asos and they have good stuff. My advice is only buy them if they are fucking awesome (the fit may be off), or just screenshot what you like and try to find a pair you can try on (with your lifts) in person. I'm in the market for some black boots so i'll probably bring one of my stylist chicks with me to approve. Timbs are fine for everyday, but if I wanna go full swaggy they aren't the building piece
sweatervest wrote: Hey Wood, what shoe lifts do you use?
The ones I use advertise 3.5 inches but I've measured and get barely over 2 inches out of them. If I could get a 4 inch boost that would be great.
For me every shoe is different. I wrote a thread earlier about this: right now I have around 1.6 inches in my timberlands. that's my max before i feel like it looks weird or i get broke
This is my formula that took around a year or so of trying different combinations to maximize the height without rolling your ankle all the time. I like having a 1 inch boost on the whole foot because it makes my shoes crease less around the foot. Boat shoes would probably be around the 1.1 inch range for me and some high tops could probably allow an extra calden or two. All shoes are different (ankle support) so having separate incremental insoles is better.
If I wear a shoe with a decent medium top (vans alomar otw, jordans etc...)
1. Spenco Total Support .6 inch (top)
2. Spenco Polysorb .6 inch (middle)
3. Calden Half Inch .5 (bottom)
My vans could only handle the .5 plus .6 polysorb until I found these (anything higher caused ankle rolls). Now I have stability to add another .6 inch and it feels the same as 1.1 inch. So adding these brought it to 1.7 inch boost. These aren't as comfortable on top as the cross trainers, but worth it for that extra .6 inch.
I wore these for years because i worked on my feet all day and they are comfortable. The bump between the heel and toes make a huge different on fatigue and I haven't found any other insoles I can recommend for everyday use. I use 2 of these stacked in my nike free run gym shoes (1 inch boost). These are mad comfortable.
Calden Half Elevator Insole for Men - 1/2 inches (A pack of 2 Pairs) $7.99
These only raise the heel. I use them to compensate the heel once the rest of the foot is maxed out with full foot insoles.
I ALSO TRIED:
WSWS 4-Layer Height Increase Taller Insole Shoes Pad Air Cushion for MEN (approximately 3.2 inches)+ WSWS Shoe Shine Cloth $21.95
Early on I found these to be too extreme. I take two of the flaps out to make it around 2 inches. I don't really understand why the bubble is there when the point is to raise the heel. (didn't really find it more comfortable, just weirder when you sink down when you stand). Don't recommend these, but figured I'd mention them since I've tried them.
Woodisgood are you like a male model or something lol. You seem to be pretty chic on fashion advice always appreciated. Whats your stats? I'm sure you have no problem pulling as you looked pretty maxed out.
Thanks for you insight

Glad to help brotha. Alot of the insight I share is funneled from my work in the industry and with girl stylists/stylish fuckbuddies. I wouldn't say I'm a model because it's not my main source of income, but I can say I model/style/blog as a paid hobby. Currently working with Timex, they sent me free watches to blog. I'm seriously thinking about posting YouTube videos on men's style based off good feedback i've been getting
As far as girls go, my stats are very low considering I was in a 7 year long faithful relationship and only go for GF-quality girls (8's and 9's). Lay count is 17 pretty much starting in 2012 after my first long relationship. I've never gave a fuck about numbers. At 30, I'd rather smash one solid 8+ chick exclusively for months without a condom than 10 chicks with rubber suits
If I'm not drinking, my cold approach game is wack. Working on that, especially getting the balls to interrupt a girl in daygame when she is busy (on phone, headphones) is what I need work on

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
