Bought for $138 down from $230. Last purchase till I go to San Fran where I'll probably buy out Uniqlo.

been thinking about getting these pants for a while, but I was wondering whether or not it would be worth it to spend the extra $100 or so on these:

what do you guys think?

I think oxblood is really cool and a bit more "versatile"

It also helps me not look like a random office worker who doesn't know any better when I wear them with black trousers.

Trying to get my basics for footwear covered. Just got some sk8 his for 48 bucks.

Next are plain white sneakers. It's between AF1's and waiting for the Stan Smith re-release. I'm leaning towards the AF1's after seeing the W(shoe)AYWT thread plus that would eliminate the need to wait.

Boxing day rundown; Sales were pretty good, seemed like not very many people were spending money though. Lineup to get into Haven took 45 min, but I swear I only saw 5 guys leave with bags the entire time. Roden gray didn't limit their numbers so it was a fucking mess inside, but again, didn't see more than one or two people actually buy anything.

Things I got: Maiden Noir for Havenshop service chino II for $74 CAD instead of $245, Homespun Knitwear dual faced ss thermal for $37.50 instead of $75, and these charcoal Lafayette shorts with waterproof zips for $85 instead of $170 that I can't seem to find a stock photo of anywhere.

So I have $200 in J.Crew gift cards when I specifically told my family that I don't shop there anymore. I'm deciding between new OCBDs because I grew out of all my others or these http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/ruggedboots/PRDOVR~05520/05520.jsp because I need to up my boot game and have been searching for suede boots.

That's how I am. Any ideas on sizing for the boots?

Oh hey, I got a J.Crew gift card too haha. I just picked up some greyish shirt, pretty soft and fits alright. There was a Schneider shirt in my size I really wanted on StyleForum, but it got scooped up before I had the money for it. It was this really nice looking wool check one, pretty bummed I missed it.

camera has packed up so will break my rule of no stock photos to tell you of my experience with raf x fred.

raf is cool to me because he has great colours and cuts, his silhouettes are some of the best and bang on that modern/slim look which i like, however his pieces never had a spot in my wardrobe. i remember scrolling through his s/s fp collab of this year thinking it was cool but i was still in the "monozone" so could only buy discount silent and docs, but over the last few months or so i have been looking at the fp site occasionally looking for the perfect polo to have some British heritage in my wardrobe always peeping at the raf ones but not being able to justify it. then sale season swung around and they started giving them away at regular fp so i thought now's the time to get some branding on my nipple. when i ordered them i was expecting something slightly above topman but was pleasantly surprised, all the buttons are embossed with the fp reef as well as there being two different types, the care tag is a raf tag imposed with the reef, it has 2 front darts to keep the body fitted, the cut itself is longer and it doesn't even have shitty paper tags! made in Portugal is nice too. i wore it to an nye party with some black jeans and cp mids and it looks v nice.

Image

after pulling a few extra days of over time i didn't expect to be doing and getting through my ny day shift on 3.5 hours sleep icaved and bought this too

Image

i've been looking for a rugby type shirt for a while but what i really wanted was one of these normal button downs with ribbed cuffs like you see soph putting out but i couldn't justify the price. when this presented itself with its price it was too good to be true, the multi coulour dog tooth is a lovely touch. will wear it with 2 butttons undone in the same way i did the polo.

i'm not sure how much 'involved' raf actually is with this collab but it definitely feels like his work, even if it was done by some interns or fp looking through his back catalog. fp and raf seems like a natural combo for that teen angst theme both carry and is one of the main reasons i like raf. the lookbooks are incredible

http://www.rafsimons.com/collections/ra ... rry/aw-13/

i also got a raeburn polo in the post which is pretty nifty.

I love those raf x fred perry polos. Except apparently you're not supposed to tumble dry them so one of mine shrunk up quite a bit.

I bought this cashmere Black Fleece blanket because you know, what the hell. Such a stupid purchase but i couldn't resist. I spend most of my time at home underneath various throw blankets so they might as well be nice.

The SA asked me if i traveled a lot, because in new york you can wear the blanket around like a shawl. Teckneaks has confirmed that this is indeed true.

My cats seem to enjoy it:

Found this at Topshop and found myself taking a liking to it.

I didn't look twice at it on the website, but I liked it in person.

Thought it would be fun with black jeans and creepers.

Just purchased an Apolis chore coat from [url]grailed.com[/url]. Really pumped to wear it. Grailed is an awesome website and really fits a niche that has been needed to be filled.
Unfortunately, this is my first time buying from someone else, so hopefully I don't get screwed over.

picked up the reigning champ x gastown fc parka for 50% off.

Image

it was definitely an impulse buy because i hadn't planned on going in. my gf wanted to check out the store after two previous attempts to visit the store but it being closed for whatever reason. i was looking through the racks and found the last one in my size. tried it on and it fit quite well. i'll have to throw up a fit pic some time soon. it's probably going to be my main jacket for rainy days that aren't cold enough to warrant something heavier. the material is a 60/40 cotton/poly blend which feels pretty cool. i'm just not sure how i feel about the front pockets though. zipped up, it looks like they're just large pockets but when unzipped, there are two smaller pockets in the upper half. they're formed by sewing the pocket lining together about halfway down the zip, creating two compartments. i like it because this means more pockets which is something i've enjoyed, especially coming from wearing mainly EG jackets. what i don't really like is that you can't really access the lower pockets without having the contents of the upper pockets exposed, potentially falling out. i think it would have been alright if they were sewn at a downward angle to keep your things in. since it's not, i don't think i'll be keeping much, if anything, in the upper pockets.

i'm still not 100% sure why i bought it though. i'm exactly sure how i'm going to integrate it into my fits. i'm thinking just a sweatshirt, black jeans, and maybe pick up a pair of slvr concepts in b/w. if anyone has any sugggestions, i'm all ears
