Any recommendations for wool trousers with a fairly hairy texture? Not suit trousers for casual wear. Preferably somewhat on the loose side and under $200

Any recommendations for boots for the winter? Preferably military style. I'm thinking of buying these Nid de guepes tactical boots, or a pair of timberlands or a pair of Yeezy 950s.

sweaters that don't make me want to tear my skin off? seems like no one's selling them. nice thick cotton ones or maybe wool blends. resorting to buying banana republic on ebay rn and it's not a pretty sight

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

Tried on an EG button shawl today, mostly for shits and giggles, but I actually really liked it. I wasn't expecting to buy into the shawl hype that seems to be going around right now, but I'm having second thoughts.

I think some wool cropped ones would be cool. help me friends.

Wanna buy boots for winter. British climate, so not too worried bout snow. Mainly gonna be wearing a dark grey Acne Charles coat this winter, but also a stone Our Legacy Shield Jacket and a green OL Bomber. Any ideas?

Not sure boots and overcoat is even a thing that can work

for 4-500 you could probably get whatever. Just make sure it has at least a Dainite sole if not a commando sole.

I think one pair of boots that goes with a parka, a bomber and a topcoat might be pushing it but maybe not. Feel like an acne longcoat would go good with some chelseas or something whereas you might as well just get some docs or doc like boots for the bomber and shield jacket.

In fact you could possibly get both some dainite soled chelseas and a pair of docs with commando soles for when it gets really grimy for about 500.

http://www.jigsaw-online.com/products/s ... boot-11350 these could be well under budget.

those are quite nice, but more on the sleeker/smarter side than I was thinking of. Kinda looking for something more street, whatever that means

Was hoping the Acne coat was chilled enough to work like that? Starting to feel like Docs are the only option, even though I was kinda hoping to avoid them...

Colour-wise though, I'm kinda fucked for choice with a dark grey coat, aren't I?

reckon you can wear any colour with a dark grey coat...

MHL has a solovair with a chunkier sole. But that is basically a doc in design.

You could provide us with some flintstone for us to flintmatch.

Could go hard trend lover and wear wheat timbs (still on trend???)

thoughts on acne garret coat? seems the closest i'll find to something like my helmut langs in a darker colour.
also, this season's navy seems a bit brighter than last year's, not sure if that's a good thing or not..

How many long coats must a man own pirx

You take them off as soon as you enter the cafe anyway

And then if there's no hanger you have to put them on the back of a chair and they scrape on the floor because the chair isn't tall enough.

you could be right. still think the best coat is the peacoat, but kids on the internet told me they weren't cool.

Being over thirty and having 19 year olds think you're cool is its own kind of uncool.

no1 by far, the other two are a badly thought out work jacket coach hybrid and some poor jacket that doesn't know if it's a Barbour or erolson hughs latest rejected design.

I've been interested in buying a nature print rain jacket.
I could buy an Undercover "less is better" forest print jacket now.

Or wait for a Patrik Ervell one.

Or wait even longer for a miharayasuhiro rose camo
