“Letters are just pieces of paper,” I said. “Burn them, and what stays in your heart will stay; keep them, and what vanishes will vanish.”

I’m a tough sell on trainers, especially in white or off-white… but ever since I took a chance on a pair of Shoes Like Pottery, I was into trainers. They go with my entire wardrobe, and just look better the more beat up they get. They’re a fantastic shoe to compliment all of the Nepenthes brands, especially EG. The sole is fired in a kiln so that it’s more flexible and durable than a typical vulcanized sole. There’s no plastic cupping like in a lot of the other trainers, which personally kills my heels. So comfort wise, nothing has fit me better than these. The heel is reinforced with fabric so that it keeps its shape while not giving you blisters. I’ve been wearing these for about 4 months, and they seem like they’ll hold up for years to come while also looking better & better. The rest of my outfit is EG: FW09 Workshirt, SS15 Explorer Jacket in Weather Poplin, and SS16 Olive Ripstop Fatigue Shorts. The bag (which has seen better days, but also has seen a ton of use) is South 2 West 8 Canal Street Tote. I think I need more pockets.

  1. Man… I’m glad you’re back. I’ve enjoying your last 4 posts the most.

    Although I’m not the biggest fan of EG due to how some of the items fit. I can agree with the lifestyle and aesthetic of the brands.

    It’s great to see a brand speak to someone as well it does with you.

    • Thanks man, have always enjoyed your Instagram. Without a doubt EG is tricky for some people, I just got lucky that it fits my body type really well and it was a brand with an aesthetic I was and still am into. I always tell my friends, I’ve been wearing the same basic outfits for 7 years, but to me, they’re unique and I love to see the progression of the fabrics and fits of my clothes. I just add pieces in little by little.

    So tight. I’m in love with the EG drawstring fatigues. Got the SS16 20s Cotton Twill Fatigue pants this year but I’m gonna have to break down and grab some shorts; it’s just too damn sticky! Let me know if you find any sz L on sale…
