I copped. UE bomber was in consignment store right next to supreme but it was bnwt and 13440 yen (like $128 USD), so I pretty much had to.

I regret buying the bape tee on the basis that their retail experience/store policies are so backwards that they don't deserve my money, but since part of those policies include no returns/exchanges of any kind I'm stuck with it. Which is fine really, I do like how it looks.

I sort of hate last purchases threads because I'd much rather see everyone posting up cool fits with their garms in the WAYWT thread than dispassionately listing them here. We don't have a legit "last purchases" thread for this reason.

Love you all though! But post fits not purchases!

From a practical standpoint, these kind of pictures allow you to see the whole item in its entirety with room for details. Has to be a shot you took though and not just a stock photo.

'Should I buy'' questions should (hopefully) have a stock photo.

My cheap-ass black dress belt finally snapped in two much to my annoyance. Was hoping to indefinitely put off replacing it. Every time I look at decent belts apathy washes over me and I simply can't muster up the enthusiasm for paying ~€100 for something as dull as a belt. Also it seems like so much hassle to do online. Maybe I should just go to C&J and buy one and get it over with.

Anyone got any thoughts? I don't care greatly about baller leather but I want something that will last the course.

Not buying from north america so get out of here with your usual suspects innit.

Would you consider making your own belt? You can get a quality belt this way for a fraction of the retail cost. The process is pretty straightforward even if you know little to nothing about leather crafting (like me), and is a fun project to undertake. There were a couple guides on MFA about this, but if I were you I would probably just visit these guys in Brussels to get started.

If this doesn't interest you, then I'm afraid you may have to end up paying retail. Baller leathers aside, some form of full grain leather is really the only thing that lasts. Still, there is nothing wrong with getting cheaper polyurethane blended belts (think patent or genuine leather) as long as you're willing to replace them every couple years.

This Margiela coat has my interest but it's one of those pieces I'd really need to see in person to know whether i'd actually like it or not.

66% Polyester, 22% cotton, 12% rayon

This might be a little bit off-topic here. Really didnt know where to put it.
But I can proxy a Visvim Artifact jacket ( green ) in size 3, if it is still avilable, for 30% off. Originally costs 950USD and is now avilable for 660-670ish.
If anyone is interested contact me. I live in Sweden, so of course the shipping is a little bit higher, suppose it will cost 150SEK ( 23USD ) within Europe and 180SEK ( 28USD ) to get it shipped worldwide, outside of Europe that is.
I dont have the money for the jacket right now, but it is the first time I think I have seen Vis on sale, so send me a message if you want it!

Not my picture, just to give you a picture of how it looks!

Thanks

negging bc this isn't a recent purchases thread & stock pics are lame. post in waywt (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8) or shoewaywt (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=154) or in the nanamica ss14 thread (viewtopic.php?f=6&t=344) or in the windows 95 school of design thread (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=269) when you receive them, maybe

They sure are. But using my iphone-camera wouldnt do them justice, since its barely working.

sorry to talk meta but it wouldn't fit in a rep comment.

prompting people to post in relevant threads creates varied content, rather than having the traditional thread set of "waywt, recent cop, find me, gd" the trap that every other forum falls into, encouraging people to actively participate in all areas of the forum as a whole and in turn broadening the horizons/ knowledge in ways you would otherwise overlook. the thread was also started as a place to discuss the possibility of buying something, rather than showing what you bought. that said i have no issues with people posting product links and discussing about them as product shots achieve very little, but at that point you might as well post in a relevant thread.

Been wanting this all season, told myself I'd wait until end of season like I did with my olive balmacaan from them and get it on the cheap, and now its here and still in my size (50) I'm not copping. I don't really know why.

Grats on the jacket, looks great. Opt for a "extremely" sweatshirt instead as it's more appropriate for your roots.

Decided Germ's ToJ is probably too long (thanks for letting me work that out and not just taking my money Germ) so the question that isn't important but I need to answer is:

Band collar double rider or Minimalist double rider

my colder weather pants wardrobe will probably be complete with the jeans but i really want a nice black hoodie. i could just get an hm hoodie in the meantime but i'm generally turned off by cheap crap.

souped up jogging pants are definitely trendy but I can't help but want a pair. i'll have to try some on and see how it looks.

these Ervell ones look nice. also would try something from a cheap streetwear type brand to see if it could get the job done, though the leg openings seem to be more athletic on those and they have those awful gussets that so many of the cheap urban outfitters/karmaloop/etc brands have. (why???)

Are you talking about the crotch gusset? I love crotch gussets.

Publish is an underrated brand, quality is nothing out of this world but they make some cool stuff.
