quality on those is supposed to be pretty poor for $700 msrp. can see a little bit of sole glue in the photo you posted.

if you do get them get black/white sole at least. but I wouldn't.

Any suggestions for a gym bag? Just looking for something inexpensive that can contain gym clothes, towel, a pair of shoes and a shaker without getting smelly.

Fisherman pullover from AA. The guy instore said that he recommended sizing down if I wasn't sure about the fit because the fabric loosens up quite a bit with wear... This is a medium, I think I'm going to get them in a size medium anyways cause I'm not a huge fan of tight knit wear. Thoughts though? I'm going to wait and see if the cyber Monday sales from AA are any better than the in-store ones then decide.

Image

They also have these cardigans that were $22/piece instore, thoughts? I really loved them and I was thinking I'd grab three and get the third one for another 50% off. $55 for three cardigans ain't bad I figure. (diff colors)

@une_impasse
yeah i know...
It's just that i've had band shirts that look like this but itchy and with shitty printing for as long as i've been buying my own clothes. That this pullover is embroidered, likely well made, and (relatively speaking) simple strikes me as nostalgic and funny in a way that goes beyond trend.

y'all are probably right that an adult like myself should think twice before walking around with a pentagram on his back though.

Skirt, Y/N?

Pros:

- I like the print (I'm getting into graphic b/w prints lately)
- Seems easy enough to wear
- I dont have a predominantly white skirt

Cons:

- Print is reminiscent of marble which I think is very much played out at this point
- Another skirt to add to my collection of barely worn skirts (dont get me wrong I love skirts which is why I have a lot of them, it's just that it's so easy to default to pants in the morning)
- I hardly wear white bottoms because I use public transpo and cant always be vigilant where I sit

Been mulling the military boot for a while (docs were considered).

These are 60's vintage and I have no idea what that means in terms of comfort and durability.

would like some straight leg cords/jeans/chinos (iffy on fatigues but i could probably give them one more chance if they're cool cargoes)

had my eye on some llbean classic fit jeans

or (insert brand here) wide wale olive//black corduroys

mostly to go with my many dana pieces (beige,brown,charcoal)

also should i get a white/off white sweatshirt?

is the Uniqlo ""Pure Blue Japan"" distressed denim work jacket cool???

Image

I like it a lot and feel like it's a step in the right direction in terms of my ~~aesthetic~~ but also:

1) I already have a run-of-the-mill distressed denim trucker (that I never really wear bc it's a little "americana" for my tastes so idk)
2) possible redundancy w/ my HW Carter long indigo chore jacket

halp :-S

p.s. @jrisk how do you like yours?

I like it a lot. I wore it bunches this past fall, almost always with the collar up. I like how the front two pockets are crumple-distressed. It looks/feels perfect for sticking your hands into.

its ok but its not like super amazing. i wouldn't spend money on that given what you have, i don't think its really gonna feel like an upgrade. better off to save more and then spring for something really dope like a vis or nbhd trucker or a kilgore or that taps shop coat that INNIT has that's really gr8

Returned OL scarf and looking for alternative

Mum scored a deal with this scarf wholesaler to get some individual pieces from them and I can pick one.

Thoughts on this one? I feel like it would go with more things than the OL piece with the pattern and colour being more neutral. 100% wool.

Better image here, can't embed it on phone

I wore these amazing straight fit comme des garcons wool trousers on a shoot the other day, they had purposeful creased lines going through them, I don't really know how to describe them but they were very cool and now I really want a pair of straight fit pants to roll up, I've wanted a pair for ages now but now I REALLY want some. I don't know if the cdg pants were ss15 or from a store so I dunno if they're available for purchase, there are so many cdg pants out there it's hard to look through

a couple of people were saying gap for cords and I checked out a pair the other day they were v nice but a bit slimfit and I think I'd rather get something more upmarket, any recommendations? Ideally I don't want to spend more than £200 but I would probs go up to £300 for a something really nice

also can someone explain to me the difference between comme des garcons/commes des garcons shirt/comme des garcons homme plus and all that stuff?

Floral printed Andover

Homespun CPO shirt
Spoiler:

Image


I like both, but I'll only get one (or neither). I want something versatile that I could wear to my (bizcaz) place of employment. The homespun fabric looks great, and I like the pockets, but it may not be as appropriate @ work. I think the Andover in general is a bit more appropriate @ work, and I also love the cut and the subtle print, but I worry that I may grow to dislike the print. I already have an Andover, so I think I know how to size it, no idea w/ the CPO (it seems like the XS CPO has the same measurements as the S Andover)

Spoiler:
I know they're totally different things. I don't know what I want.
