Someone please educate me on zippers please. I know some basic stuff about ykk and riri but ones like lampo and talon are completely foreign to me. I looked up the price of a single two-way 30" super lampo t8 and it would cost $30. What goes into making these zippers? What's the history behind these brands?

Looking for some geometric focused jewelry for my girlfriend. I was looking at getting a matching pair of cos pieces but I'm completely oblivious of quality when it comes to jewelry.

I think I may just end up going to our gem show and hoping I can find something nice there.

Regardless, I'm looking for some suggestions for jewelry shops online that have a lot of geometric designs. Simple.

Thoughts on doc marten chelseas? is the last/shaft pretty clunky?

Assuming it is too rugged to wear with like tailoring/all that but not sure if its too chunky for skinnier jeans, any one know?

reckon it would be feasible with CPs? My rubber soled boots have worn through recently and I'm hoping I can take some preventative measures before anything similar happens to the CPs. Could be cool to make them slightly chunkier too.


margom sole won't really wear down much. I wore my cps 5 days a week for a year and there was almost 0 noticeable wear on them

Yea you can do it but with a lot of tapes you'll need a heat press machine to make sure the tape sticks, an ordinary iron probably won't do. Also, putting a jacket w/ hardware in a heat press is never a good idea.

What's the way to combine mao/band/throne collars? If I wear a mao/band/throne shirt, should the jacket have that sort of collar too, or should it have a more "traditional" collar? What of the other way? Do traditional (spread/club/whatever) collars necessitate similar folded collars for outerwear?

And by saying "pants", I meant trousers as well (as a synonym). Should I look into YY, CDG or I. Miyake?

Older yohji, like 95-03 would work well for that look if you get them in a cotton (sweatpants like) or jersey fabric. Maybe y's for men would have more of the jersey like cotton fabric. Maybe older wool Aberdeen.

How do you want them to feel?

Jersey or wool would be definitely ideal for my taste. I already had Yohij's pants on me, so I know what to expect, but they were your typical, wide leg PH wool ones (size 3, I believe?).

The only reason I suggest cotton is the jersey ones dont have the same drape. To get that nice crisp look wool gab is simplest, but it looks a bit beefier then typical yohji wool gab. The thicker wool is really nice but more structured, the main go between that I have found is the cotton. Depending on your sizing you can always find great deals online, and IF in NYC has a bunch of yohji at 75% off till friday.

Thinking about buying EG Vans. How do I go about copping them? Do I have to sit around in the wee hours of the morning for a drop just to snag them up in a half second window or what?
