Clothes

I don't know what I want (Buyer's guide)

Postby bels » Wed Jul 17, 2013 6:23 pm

In microeconomic theory, the opportunity cost of a choice is the value of the best alternative forgone, in a situation in which a choice needs to be made between several mutually exclusive alternatives given limited resources. Assuming the best choice is made, it is the "cost" incurred by not enjoying the benefit that would be had by taking the second best choice available.


Post things you're considering buying. I'm on an anti buy clothes thing lately so I'd ask you to present an alternative that isn't clothes but who knows what you'll do.

I dunno I was just trying to think of something. In reality I probably wouldn't spend this money, which is probably the most compelling argument for me not to buy clothes atm since I'm only doing it out of boredom / some sort of sick sense of capitalist obligation

I can't say it gets my motor running. Though it looks quite durable and I like blazers that can be rolled up and put in a bag.

That color though..

I like the idea of you in a khaki jacket but this one isn't the most interesting around.

Could see you more in something like this or this for example

Yeah it's sick

I've got an itch for a mac too, my jackets are limiting (one wool overcoat for work and one barbour for foul weather casual)

How is your YMC?

Dunno. Heat Wave init? Not been worn yet.

From feeling it up and the detailing though... A little over priced I think

I like those blazers but they both seem a little modern in cut and details to me. First feels too formal and second is a little barnyard.

The bean appeals to me bc I know it will fit how I want it to, like a guy in a 90s sitcom and it comes in Tall sizes and I love ll bean. I've always wanted a khaki cotton blazer that would be my Airport Jacket which I wear whenever I fly

thisis the other bean blazer, it's a little safari but I always imagined my Airport Jacket could have some safari details

why do you want an airport jacket?

do you spend a lot of time in airports?

I also want airport jacket. Really handy thing to have. Currently wear a denim jacket as mine and it works fairly well but would like a blazer type one too.

All about the pockets germ

That's the thing. An airport jacket is probably so practical that you wear it all the time. You just call it an airport jacket

I love flying alone, I ritualize it a fair bit and dunno I think the right khaki jacket would just look so good in an airport. I would look so mature and adjusted you know?

Maybe a m65 type would be better tho. I found a ndg jacket at consignment that had a stand collar w zip, but instead of a hood coming out of the zip it was a jacket sling. Didn't fit tho

It's a piece from my past.

http://dressed.so/post/view/5043819a3b315

I know what you mean about the ritual and airport clothes. I have some bits that get a lot of airport wear. Got to be at the right vector of comfortable/practical but still look good because I want to look together in an airport.

That m65 sounds amazing
