I think everything piles, at least my margaret jumper had loads of piling. I dealt with it with one of those cashmere combs.

Probably the main issue with buying knitwear from uniqlo (i have plenty) is the cost cutting measures that must have lead to the jumper costing a tenth of what margaret is asking for.

People assume you're wearing Margaret because:

a) You seem like the type
and
b) You wear clothes that look like the ones she sells

I'm pretty sure if I bought Virgils off Rak I could tailor my faded Uniqlo washed selvedge I could pass them off as social sculpture denim. Then working off that expectation reach for a nice Jcrew jacket being a vis M-65 and then by association the Uniqlo denim jacket under it being social sculpture. Transforming myself from "guy who bought expensive boots used" into wealthy Visvim god. I'm sure I'm not the first to try this though.

Yeah my new year's resolution is not to buy anything from the high street in 2017, and both reasons not true.

Looking for some high waisted trouser recommendations. I want a loose top block and upper leg with moderate taper towards the hem. Fishtail waistband preferred, http://care-tags.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=31&p=78053&hilit=waist#p78053 this sort of extra material above the belt loops ideal. Pleats optional. I want something with some structure, not a pair of formless sack pants, but not overly formal either.

I think that it is not. Cowichan, etc., If you prefer a thick knit, how about you? It is cool there is atmosphere!

I quite literally had a Rains one in my hand the other day at work but someone took if off of my desk, so they do exist.

On the hunt for a new black jumper. Needs to be black, thin and not have heavy ribbing so I can easily wear a long sleeve t shirt under it and not have the hem interfere, so more like a long sleeve black merino wool tshirt than a jumper.

No smocks.

Searching for a new belt as my old one's falling apart. Don't want any of this dead animal business and it should be black.

Where can I get one made of webbing with the D ring thing?

Thinking about getting some Vans slip ons, probably white. Do you suppose leather white slips would look worse (especially when beat up) than canvas white slip ons. Opening Ceremony has vault ones for $45 and free shipping. Really tempted to get them over the canvas.

Edit: I think I've decided to pay the extra $15 for the canvas vaults.
