    It gives off a Victorian vibe, but not like non functional, and still modern. Tres classy!

    Also coats are something you really shouldn't feel bad spending big money on, gonna be wearing it often enough in the cold months

    But I already have a winter coat that I got a year ago and is still in great condition.

    Maybe I will win the lottery!

    I would improve my odds by starting to play the lottery.

    Dudes I need new shoes. My uncle just gave me a metric fuckton of new classy shoes for business wear and stuff but I need some new casual wear stuff. I don't do shoe shopping very often and usually I go to like payless and get some cheap ones that last a couple years. I thought about doing something different this time. I thought about getting these:

    But I also like having comfort so I take it I need to get some insoles for these right?

    I wear those. I typically have only one pair of shoes that I wear until they fall apart, so I've had my chucks since summer of '09, and they're still going strong.

    Starting to look kinda rugged, though.

    Do you wear insoles with them? Last time I looked at them my friend kinda freaked me out going on and on about the intricacies of purchasing a pair of chucks. Saying how to get them a size bigger and get like these super expensive insoles and shit and then I decided to go to payless instead.

    I had a pair of Jack Purcells, which are very similar to Chucks. They came with a really comfy insole and were my favorite shoes ever. I am sort of hard on shoes for some reason, despite being thin for my height. Maybe I drag my feet or something, I don't know. Anyway, I walked about five miles a day in them, and wore them pretty much every day. They didn't last a year. Things came unglued everywhere and the soles wore really thin.

    I don't think I would buy them again. They normally sell for about $60. I expected them to be more durable.

    apologies, but this is a pet-peeve. the "ladies button to the left" thing due to maidservants, that's partially lore; men were just as liable to have dressers, if not moreso, given the difficulty of getting into armor without some sort of squire. and the personal attendant who can't figure out a buttonhole on the 'wrong' side probably ain't getting paid. there's no one agreed-upon reason for the placement of buttonholes, really. internet people have opinions:
    "It actually dates from victorian times, when it was seen as unseemly and unwomanly for women to be wearing clothing that was too much like a man's. Also because that is when buttoned clothing for women really came to the fore in the guise of 'tailor-mades' (i.e. suits), and garments that reflected military clothing. [...] However, on clothing prior to the Victorian period (as evidenced by many, many extant garments both in museums and in private collections) there was no hard and fast rule for men's clothing or women's clothing. It wasn't unheard of among poorer people for the buttonholes to be sewn up, and the buttons sewn to the other side of the garment to increase its life."

    "[...] for the most part, women's clothing did not button in the front but in the back (and it made it handy for the noble women's servant girl to get them dressed.) This also explains the men's servants buttoning them from the front, and the need to make it easier for them as well."

    "Traditionally, men's garments button left over right. However, at one time, both men’s and women’s wear had buttons on the left. During the Middle Ages, men’s buttons were changed to the right to enable one to open the coat with the left hand and draw their sword from across the left hip with the right hand."

    re: Civil War reenactment costumes: "For middle and upper classes the modern rules apply (ie different for men and women). for lower classes it's possible that they may have carried on the older tradition of switching sides to increase the life of the garment."

    "One theory is that the gender closings were only standardized as ready-to-wear became widespread, and that was later in the 19th century."

    so, there are various explanations.
    1. it was due to the majority of self-dressers being right-handed, and
      • liable to draw a sword across the hip, or
      • breastfeeding or carrying a baby on the left, leading another with the right hand (what?),
    2. it was easier for the tailor (and conveniently, the maid and valet) to do up the buttons,
    3. women's fashion differentiated from men's due to considerations of style or propriety,
    4. there was no rigid bespoke tradition, with the placement varying throughout the garment's life in order to prolong its use,
    5. the emergence of ready-to-wear as a phenomenon brought manufacturing standardization and the segmentation of markets.

    i suspect it's some combination of 2-5, with heavier emphasis on the latter two. i wish i could find this article: Lopez, Judith. “Buttonholes: Some Differences in Gender-Related Front Closures.” Dress, Vol. 20 (1993): 74-78.

    and for those not interested in the wall of text, or alternately, as a reward for wading through, a pretty:
