With summer coming around I want a floral shirt, I have a very particular but rather ill defined idea of what I want in one. I generally want things on the more subtle side but not so subtle you can barely make out the design, I'm also ok with bold designs if they don't use primary colours and aren't super saturated. Large, somewhat sparse prints are ideal, also long sleeves only.

Here are some prints that I dig, can anyone make some suggestions of other places to look for this sort of thing?

This is not a shirt but the print is cool

The prints from that Dries collection are all absolute beauties but they're pretty £££££££

@meatjacket

Gitman seems like it would fit the bill on paper but I find most of their designs either too saturated or too busy for my liking.

Been looking for some sort of slip-on or loafer for a bit, and have been considering these MOTOs, but I'm not 100% convinced on the shape of them. Interested in hearing second opinions.

Any ideas? I'd like to avoid buying converse, but it's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.

Edit: no Af1s.


Realized that I actually just want Vandals and that I shouldn't settle for anything less..

Except now I have to try to find Vandals in a good colourway that fit a US10.5. Faurk.

I'm going Interrailing through Europe this summer and I need some shoes to be my mainstays throughout the trip (I already have a pair of Tevas that I'm taking). I am completely stuck as for what to take as I need them to be able to be comfy and sturdy enough for over three weeks of Interrailing but possibly also to look clean enough to get away with being worn to clubs. <-- do tell me if that is impossible/ a rubbish idea
Any help is much appreciated!

unless you mean clubbing as in the yacht club and those £20 a drink trendy joints, the avg UK euro club will let you in wearing trainers unless it's some dress up night. as long as they're clean and you don't look like you're going to stab someone you're good, you're probably also good if you do look like you want to stab someone as its a trendy look rn

I went to Windsor a few times in liquid, some guy wanted a word with me after I was dancing with his mates gf, I also pulled on another night there dressed as Clark Kent. Wokingham but that's a shit night out Tbf would not recommend. People raved about reading but to me it's a bit bait.

Really you should only ever go to clubs where everyone is wearing trainers. It means that the crowd's going to be friendly, there to dance, and the music should be good. Nothing worse than cheap leather shoes on tiny, sticky dance floors and girls stumbling around in heels.

Personally I wear Reebok Workouts on nights out for that 90s raver jizz.

Looking for a vertically ribbed, long, somewhat loose gray knit sweater. Sloppy rollneck preferred. Kind of like this but about thigh length on someone over 6 ft. Lighter than this gray preferred, and no darker:

Image

Will be keeping an eye out for old yohji mens in case something like this in a light enough gray was made but wanted to put some feelers out and see if anyone had other ideas. I've found suitable rollnecks like this but the problem is that they're all way shorter than i'm looking for.

want to purchase some shoes for summer that are more formal than sneakers. i.e., something that could be worn with shorts or jeans, and also airport jacket / casual blazer. not sure if it's really what i mean but something like a wedge sole derby, but more summer appropriate. wallabees maybe? idk. anyways, looking for any and all ideas at the moment. probably can't spend more than 250, but mainly just looking for some interesting options.

Is there a consensus on capes? Topman have got a few at the moment, I managed to try one of them on -

Image

I dig the concept, I dig the shape, I'm still holding out for something like this though http://i.imgur.com/uP4fvItl.jpg which is just ever elusive.

I'm tempted to cop this one though anyway... Other colours that they didn't have in store:

GREY: http://www.topman.com/en/tmuk/product/n ... bi=1&ps=20

RED: http://www.topman.com/webapp/wcs/stores ... &langId=-1

EDIT: @Blastoise - yeah I'm down with that, I really like the idea of being able to wear a lighter jacket/overshirt and then throw the cape over the top (much like how I did it in the picture) in spring/autumn. Its not something that I've seen often and I feel it fits nicely into the SLP aesthetic I'm trying to chase. Beyond the look of the thing I'm also worried about realistic functionality. Like today was blowing an absolute gale, I doubt the cape would hold up too well to that... #problems

What are the best places to look for 3/4ths type sleeves? Also, if they are like flared sleeves that would be even better.

If not, good places to look for good s/s or l/s flared shirts? I haven't found much. I'll take any price really, just looking at them is fine, but if there are sub 100 options I would appreciate those

Thanks (love)

I'm looking for a new black belt. A fairly simple black belt with a silver buckle..Something similar to belts from ma+, Goti, Werkstatt or iolom (maybe not too crazy like iolom) but abit cheaper. Somewhere between 200 - 300$. Any suggestions would be great..
Thanks! (smiling)

The standard COS chino is a great fit and nice and lightweight. Never tried rolling it significantly but it works out fine otherwise.

need recs for a good olive shirt jacket to replace my falling apart trusty H&M one.

- no m65 style pockets
- must have ≥4 pockets
- no epaulettes
- kangaroo-style pockets are a plus
- japanese brand that no one's ever heard of is a bonus/open to buying international or used
- max $150-200

Thinking of buying these, but before I do, wondering if there's anything similar that I could look at? Mostly about the length, olive would be best. Pockets, no pockets not a big deal.
