Anyone have suggestions for jackets like this? Preferably in a fabric that's wearable in Texas fall->early spring

This is Marg FW13 So my chances of finding the exact one are slim.

on this note we need someone to find an OG supplier of wool overshirts/work jkts that are not too heritage-y. sadly the person in charge of this stuff has lost his mojo and veered off into '2015 techwear dad' territory. :-|

What about the microplastics? I guess you could decide never to wash your fleece

Figured patagonia would have something to say about microfibers, turns out they make a bag to wash your fleeces in to catch them.

very close to buying some wranglers tbh


i tried various pairs of levis, namely 501s and 505s and the rises weren't high enough. when I wore them high enough to fit at the waist, they were too tight on the thigh which made the rest of the straight leg look very bad.

got a pair of vintage CK jeans on the way. crossing my fingers.

@cheerupbrokeboy, looked at supreme for a sec but their inseams are too short. Need at least a 33".

I'm looking for a bigger top block + slight tapered fit, so something vintage is probably my best bet. can't imagine acne having anything like that.

I don’t have any goals I think just it’s strange to through life only having my admittedly limited and uninformed opinions that’s why I asked I didn’t mean to stoke any fires JonJo. Who I am and who i want to Be are two different people and while I think it’s good to have ambitions and I have lots of them, I’m going thru a time where everything in life is changing and this, lost any sense of stability I once had. I’m excited but I’ve lost my sense of who I am and this have to change.

Any good recs on some BDU jackets / fatigue jackets? I've looked at vis, orslow, auralee, fujito, c.e, and comoli. I'm trying to see if there's anything else that's interesting

I'm sorta desperately in need of some trousers. Have basically two pairs: a grey wool pair and a blue linen pair. It's too cold for the linen one, so all I have now is grey.

Somehow seems I like very few of the trousers out there this season, or the ones I do like seem to be even beyond what I'm willing to spend. I was hoping for some trousers that aren't black, blue, or grey, and preferably something warm enough for winter and loose enough for me to feel supercool. Definitely don't wanna go over €300 tho

Album of some trousers I've kinda considered or liked:

Spoiler:


First two are just way too expensive
Story ones I like but they're denim and not sure I want denim
Last three are OL: Black cords are cool but didn't really want black, not sure how much i like the green, and trackies are cool but don't really help me for warm daily trousers and are hard to justify spending 200 eu on


So any trousers or brands that might fall within 150-300 euro trousers that are cool would be v welcome

Anyone have any recommendations for a nice cute winter parka (female, 5' tall and 100 lbs)? Living in Boston (moved here from TN a little over a year ago) and am still looking for something warm, interesting, and cute! Preferably less than $250, though I know Canada Goose/Moncler/etc. are all the rage

Spoiler:
Found this on norse but they were out of my size, tragic : ( looking for something along this style

I’m looking for the perfect (for me) casual blazer thing. Something I can wear with straight denim, oxford shirts, knits, tees. MHL and EG seem to be a kind of obvious choices, but I’ve been looking at Bonne Amaterdam’s stuff too, and despite the funky double breast, I think I could make it work. Some heavy cotton/twill would probably be best for me, wool (even in near blends/weaves) seems like it would be maybe too much. Trying to avoid excessively slim cuts. Any recs?

I lost my CdG 3100 wallet on a night out last week and I think I'm too heartbroken (and skint) to replace it with another, any recommendations for a similarly-priced or cheaper alternatives?
