All you can do is reconstruct it with extra fabric, which I can't recommend because of the insulation (along with the ever-present risk of misalignment). You'd really only want to add fabric if it was like a dress because you could just add paneling.


to clarify, i haven't actually tried this bomber on yet because it shipped to my parent's house while I'm out of the country, but my brother (almost the same dimensions as me) tried it on and said it was a little tight. This is probably to be expected because it's Attachment, with high armholes and built for an asian frame. I'll get it checked out by someone when I finally get my hands on it, it'd be really nice to layer with


i own 2 attachment pieces and the cuts are definitely the slimmest and least forgiving out of anything else i own. wish i'd sized up on them. and like sidewalk said, a bomber specifically is going to be tricky.

@camping jazz i sized correctly on the bomber, the shoulders/all the lengths are perfect but it just looks too slim

seriously a bummer, i was totally going to buy a KKA mod coat, now i'm second-guessing that

Why do some Raf pieces say the season on them and others don't?

What are some shirting brands (vintage or otherwise) that use unique fabrics/patterns similar to gitman bros. vintage? e.g.

Image

(not full print necessarily, just any brand that consistently produces interesting patterns or prints)
right now I can only think of columbia, tommy hilfiger, woolrich, kennington, paul smith

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

Looking for slim white button down/up shirts... I was recommended twill because of the fairly thick fabric and the fact it still looks nice... so:

sub $100 (or /just/ above, especially if there are sales/deals)

Twill or otherewise thick fabric (not oxford)

Good to tuck in (very long) or good to wear untucked, but not both

Any advice regarding this on the 2nd hand market is great too...

Sadly Kamakura seems to have twill, but not in the Tokyo slim fit (which would probably fit me best).

Does East Dane do sales / have discount codes &tc?

I notice that Veilance IS patrol is about #400 cheaper from there than it is in the UK. Knock another 25% of and that's half price.

Not sure - I'd say halfway in between the start of the season and sales season. Looks like it was around April this S/S, so extrapolate that as you may. I didn't look at the item being discussed though, I'm talking about full priced items here. They definitely did a few % off sale items too but then doesn't come until sales season which we're faaarrr from

i've been procrastinating getting a bike for around a year now (i'm pathetic, yes), and since i'm on break and it's nice out today i popped into the local bike-store

they had some jamis coda-sport 2014 things that looked very nice, for around $500. wondering if they're as good as the employees made them out to be?

looking to be able to ride 10-30 miles casually a few times a week, and possibly commute. i live in portland, so the brakes need to be good in rain. from what i've read on the internet thus-far the bike seems to be a good match for me, but i'm wondering if any c-t cyclists have some knowledge to drop on me before i drop cash that i can't get back?

@ques

Jamis' are really solid, non flashy bikes. Really well priced, well made, will get you around. Most brakes on new non-walmart brakes are going to be good enough, if you wanna get real into it though get something with disc brakes (by no means necessary.)

My favorite route is craigslisting some solid old steel frame road bike. Much cheaper and have a lot of character, but hard to go wrong with Jamis.

What is some good starter denim? I've been buying JC Penny Levi's for years now and want to put a little more into my jeans. I'm 5'11" and 150 Lbs With a hip measurement of 85 cm and waist of 75 cm with an inseam of 76. I'm looking for a basic runway look if that makes sense? Like raf simon's 2015 collection type of fit. Any help would be much appreciated.

Guys I'm helping set up a fashion society at my university in London with 4 or 5 girls and although I've already come up with a few ideas such as attending exhibitions, going to places like Liberty or Selfridges and of course, London Fashion Week, but I feel like I'm not thinking hard enough. What would you have wanted to gain from joining a fashion society in university?

thoughts on the ethics of using luxire or the like to replicate a specific piece bc it doesn't come in your size/a color you want/is really hard to find?

I hate to be that guy that does this, but I'm so lost. I want to do a sort of british teenager type of cut (If that makes any sense.) Like a stereotypical runway haircut, but I feel like my nose is too bulbous to do that. Can someone recommend me direction when it comes to my hair? Image

I guess you just need a belt that isn't so stiff. Maybe it'll go away with use.

@donut_milk here is a list of japanese webstores/brands that I like... most webstores don't ship directly so you'll need to use a proxy, but tbh lots of older seasons available for SUPER CHEAP on rakuten, and they usually ship directly to ya. useful to use google chrome bc of built-in translate function

brands:

beams (all lines, tho beams boy is my favourite...)
beauty + youth (by united arrows)
cosmic wonder
eva evam
grandma mama daughter
green label (by united arrows)
journal standard
kapital
nano universe
or slow
