Jumpsuit suggestions? Black, one-piece (sorry, Old Town), pants length (28" + inseam cuz I'm short) and long sleeves, buttons a must (can't do zippers, sorry). Looking for something that's either pretty slim/fitted throughout or pretty oversized like a hakama jumpsuit or something. No denim.

Lol blastoise I think a lot of ppl who care about "fashion" also care if something is trendy or no...whether or not I do its not relevant ( I don't, I've been wearing ma1s for ages) but nevertheless you should accept We can't all be so cool and timeless like you:)

@Vaeltaja I have a Robert Geller jumpsuit from AW15 that meets all of those requirements except maybe inseam. It's a size 48 and is kinda big on me so I don't wear it too much. I'm willing to let it go if you're interested! (smiling)

What's the best option for a Yahoo Auctions Japan agent? I'm thinking of using buyee.jp but I'm not sure it's the best option?

Edit. Thanks all, hopefully I win this.

Who makes hakama pants? Yohji Yamamoto, obviously. Kapital, sometimes. Looking for something super-wide. Full-length is a huge benefit. 38 inches or 97 cm is perfect, give or take a little bit? Basically I'm looking for something that'll flow with the breeze and isn't heavy like a standard denim/twill. I'm going used so weird-o used brands aren't great for me (unless it's under $300 USD). Longer is OK since I can just tailor them up. I need like a 39-40 cm waist, I think?

can you safely machine dry cav empt tees? it says to not do it on the tag but idk it's a graphic tee

plus it feels like my supreme tshirt, like one tumble dry would make the cotton significantly less rough

EDIT lol i'm not saying regularly, just drying it once to shrink it a tiny bit and make the fabric softer, just want to make sure that drying it once won't fuck up the shirt catastrophically

Another trite black derby question.

I'm into the Yuketen 1940 Milspecs, but their webshop is out of stock in my size and I can't find anywhere else that stocks them.

Spoiler:
Image


The chunkiness of Trickers is really appealing, but all their best shoes are brogues. Paraboot has some cool silhouettes too, but every shoe they make seems to have a moc or split toe. I like the shape of the Doc Marten 1461 or Red Wing Postman, but I'm really unenthused about them otherwise.

Any cool uncool derbies out there I'm missing? Yuketen stockists? Other suggestions to cure my existential angst about my footwear?

For Raf Simons Velcro Highs, does anyone know the difference between the made in Italy and the made in Portugal versions? All I can gather is that Italian models have better quality leather, would love to hear opinions from anyone with first hand experience. Also any sizing advice, '16 models seem to be TTS but I remember hearing older models were a size large?

Just ordered a pair of Acne jeans. Assuming I don't return them, how unacceptable would it be to cut the "ACNE" tag off the waistband? The thought of people looking at the acne on my face and then I turn around and there's ACNE on my ass sounds like a bad fever dream.

That said I have a down parka that's XS and still fits me but that's a fluke.

I've only been wearing my Eyty's, which I bought brand new in November, like, three times a week and this shit is already happening. The sole is splitting and peeling off on both sides of both shoes :( anyone know how I can stop this from getting worse or possibly repair it? I figured there'd be some peeling since it's not stitched, but I didn't think the sole would be literally falling off in chunks.

Hello cuties can anyone please recommend me,

- Some kind of pant with elasticated or semi-elasticated waist, or drawstring waistband, that looks ~professional~ enough to be worn in a work environment, and at least some taper towards the ankle? Preferably around or under US$250? Am I dreaming?

- Some kind of Gore-tex shell under $300 with no visible branding

Used/Rak/y!jp is fine/preferable :^)

Here's a bolt you can purchase that seems similar, it's a wool and silk blend:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/123582795/ ... aign=Share

I'm not an expert but I did work with textiles a lot for a previous job. What you've posted seems similar to results that come up for 'Sakiori Rag Weave', 'ikat shijira-ori', and the Japanese boro pieces made from thick hemp (or cotton meant to imitate hemp's look since cotton was introduced to Japan at a later date)
