Strongly considering buying this t-shirt. Also does anyone have any experience with Norse Project? Is the quality good and how is the sizing?

Follow up to my last post-

Thanks for that advice y'all, I guess I hadn't realized how fire they were at first. I had them on a 24 hour hold when I posted, went back and copped today. Hit them with a magic eraser and a suede brush and they look nice. Can't wait to rock them at the first glimpse of Autumn. Ty guys

Saturdays Zac Jacket for like £55

It would make for a nice lighter waterproof layer but I'm not so sure if it would go with other bottoms as well as it goes with black jeans.

Thinking of buying this Whyred shirt from last season

or maybe this shirt (once I get a reply from their customer service telling me where/when to buy it). Sadly it's the only picture they got of it as far as I've seen on their website.

any reason you want flatbars specifically? you'd probs be way better off with drops and if you want discs you can get them on a cross bike.

Unless you're trying to do mad messenger shit like lane split and salmoning and stuff you'd be fine with the maneuverability of drops, and if you want to do any riding beyond just commuting they'll be way better

Going to NYC this weekend, I have some final pieces (this is a lie) to pick up to complete my F/W wardrobe. Not sure which stores I'll get to since my friends hate shopping.

White tank, scoop neck tee and longsleeve tee, grey crewneck sweatshirt, black tank and scoop neck tee. Looking for a bit of drape on everything except the sweatshirt.

I'll probably go with AA for some of it and probably Archival for the sweatshirt. Looking for any suggestions for moderately priced stuff.

I want boots but idk what to get. Been looking at timbs, doc martens 1460s, and these red wings. There's a cheap pair of 1460s in my size on grailed but I'm not completely sure yet because I want 1461s in the future and I feel like that would be kinda redundant.

Also considering this shirt, but I would have to tailor it to shorten the length and sleeves and I'm not sure I would want to do that because it would get rid of it's resale value because it would fit very few people, so I doubt I'd be able to sell it at all if I had to in the future.

Man I really need some more shoes, lacking some foot-fire. However my 12.5US feet eliminate quite a bit of shoes because they look clowny (looking at you Converse). Atm I have Vans x Wtaps Olive, 4 pairs of Era's, Multi flyknits and some brown wolverine moc-toes. Thought about getting some B/W sk8-hi and modding them like this, but HI's are like $110 here and again, I don't really need more "muted" shoes, even though I love them. I need some that can make an outfit, also, budget is like $200 maks, rather lower, but will pay if it's worth it aaaand I kind of want to be able to try them on without too much shipping hassle.

Boot recs would also be fine, I'm just having a hard time justifying buying new when my mocs still work great and look pretty good (a bit stretched and clunky though) and to get a good quality low-profile boot I'd have to drop $300+++

Down the road Im looking to get a pair of black skinnies and I've narrowed it down to two pairs, one being SLP 15.5s (I tried on a pair and they fit phenomenally in the thigh and calf and the taper is just what I was looking for - needed a size down in the waist though) and another being the Acne Thin stays. I haven't had the chance to try on a pair of the Thins, nor have I tried on the Aces, but I think I'd like something even tighter than the Ace fit. The SLP customer service was unbelievable and I would love to order from them just because of that, but no matter how good the fit or service was, the price tag, $475, is still high. Can anyone comment on how the Thins compare to the SLPs in terms of fit? Reason being because they're nearly half the price and if they're as good, I'll eventually do those.

@rjbman The only thing is that between me being 6'2", my foot size, my tiny calves and my skinny jeans I just had the idea that AF1's would look gigantic on me. Also, they are ~$160 here, but I'll see if I can find a store somewhere close that stocks them.

I've been looking for a duffle coat and I've come across this:

http://www.phixclothing.com/navy-wool-d ... 11154.html

It's super cheap and simple but would probably fall to pieces in 5mins. Thoughts?

Also considering this 'cause its jokes: http://www.phixclothing.com/bellfield-p ... 11164.html but its 85% acrylic so I'm not gonna

@breakadawn I got an acrylic-y jumper from gap a couple of years ago and it made my neck itch a ton, so I've not touched it since. Its suuuuuper tempting though... I could always give it to my brother as a present...

better off trying to find a nice gloverall on a nice sale or off the bay of dreams for a duffel coat, bit more in £££ but would be a lot nicer than a low end option.

considering getting these, I usually dress in blue and browns so I dunno if they'd work with a more colorful wardrobe

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

Torrentshells (and their TNF brethren Venture) are really as light as you can get while staying completely waterproof (think there are flimsier stuff but those are just straight vinyl or such). They're really great for staying dry, but don't breathe too well. My Torrentshell comes with armpit zips you can open to get some ventilation, which I usually do even in rain.

Would recommend as a stay-dry coat, but not as an overall spring/fall jacket.

It sounds like the SLP's are just what you're looking for. You tried them on, why even bother with the Acnes?
