On an average day how many hammers or tools do you find yourself carrying?

Enough to warrant a carrying strap and several pockets I suppose

Would quite like to own this. RSVP's size chart looks all fucked up though for CE stuff, shame they don't have it on their own site. Think i'm an XL but I'd rather not deal with returning it.

I'm probably going to check that place out in a few weeks but that's probably not especially helpful for you.

Shirt is sick though.

Came across some random mom selling her kid's bape shark hoodie on ebay for $10 but I think it's fake b/c I can't find a record of it ever being produced in brown.

Not sure if I should cop anyway cause I feel like I should do something with it, even if it's just repurposing the hood for something else or something.

Anyone know anything about Dries' suits? I just bought one off of yoox but realized I don't really know how their quality stands compared to other brands. I feel like it's been discussed before but I can't recall where.

Lovely quality but the most impressive things are the fabrics which can be (as one'd expect) really gorgeous and interesting.

However I find that the jackets are crazy tight on me in the chest and sizing up makes the shoulders too big.

so today was eventful,

i went to london for the palace x reeboks got to the store and they were all out of black so at first i thought 'time to go home' then they bring out the whites with this sick ice crystal sole and i it was game over, bagged them up for him to show me a tee with thermo ink which changes clear as it heats up which i was i thought was insane. after all this excitement i walked around london a bit to cp company and they had this great shirt jacket, cotton lined with a nylon shell and roll out hood was perfect, only for me to see the price and cry a little. as time passed i met up with carraig from irc (great guy) and we went to y-3, opening ceremony and cos we then got on to the topic of tk maxx getting mad rep lately for some brands they have in, was only across the street so we thought we'd give it a shot. walked in and there was racks of rlp and superdry so i was regretting this already, carraig then pulls out an arran craft sweater for a barg so i thought better look harder. i find this rack of 'gold label' gear in the corner, flicking through i was pulling out some nice margeila mole skin trews, maggie howell zip up and a few other great pieces thinking it's insane, the prices we so low. then i struck something that felt familiar so pulled it out, and was floored. i'd just picked up the same thing i'd found in cpc in a better colour and my size, could not believe it checked the price tag and saw it was 70% off, proceeding to run to the till.

today the garmz lords shone down on me.

I sold some stuff I never wear and have some money and I bought the vans x liberty sk8 his a couple weeks ago but I think I'm going to buy the olive wtaps ones because sk8-his are my favorite shoe ever and I've fallen in love with wtaps recently and I feel like an idiot but who cares, it's what I want.

I also really want the chukkas ahh wtaps is so cool you guys.

Also who makes good M65s? Should I just go surplus?

was (still am) really tempted by midvh's sidezips, which are pretty different things, but at this price i couldn't resist.
