I've worn the same par of Vans for almost 15 years. No other pair of shoes I've ever owned have lasted this long. The inserts are pretty much flattened to where I can feel every pebble of gravel under my foot, but the exterior is still perfectly intact minus the usual dirtiness acquired over such a time. I ordered a new pair of Vans and I'll probably get some new inserts for my current ones.

My Carhartt is great, but the water resistance is nothing like it used to be. I thought the quick duck material was naturally water repellent but I notice all the quick duck gear is marketed now as "with Rain Defender® durable water repellent". Maybe mine was labeled like that too back when I bought it but I don't remember. After a few years and occasional washings, my coat needs a new coating of this water repellent but I don't see where I can buy a carhartt brand spray bottle of it online. I'm hesitant to use the water repellent I use on my grill covers because that stuff darkened the color of the fabric. I'm going to call the official Carhartt store in the mall near me and ask if they sell the actual rain defender spray once it gets closer to winter.
yeah I had some Dickies shirts like that and within 3-4 washes it just turned into a normal absorbent shirt.
lol. yep. I like Dickies brand belts, but their shirts and pants always felt noticeably heavier to me compared to similar styles of other brands. Hows the quality of the shirts besides the water repellent properties?
