Looking through (my sister's...) Vogue this stood out to me

Image (Isa Arfen cape, Joseph shirt)

What (mid-range) brands do a similar clean but relaxed textured aesthetic? Other than OL

sidenote: Joseph (women's) is cool

@DeafIdiotGod

Thanks, especially the shirts seem like they could work

Though overall the aesthetic I'm looking for would be more luxe. Like Lemaire but less formal, sort of

@mike868y thanks! I'm assuming you're talking about the Fords. Do you happen to have measurements? Looking at Gios and Skinny, they have weird waist measurements. If not, I'll just shoot them an email tomorrow.

Thinking either Devoa shorts like these: Image

Or should I buy full length pants and crop them into ~mid-shin length (wearable with boot or shoes).

A banned user once called it the "AllSaints of techwear" which is, if information from some seasons ago, is still relevant, is true. They are of similar design, but lesser quality than the brands they try to look like (e.g. Arc'teryx Veilence).

Can anyone tell me the damn hem measurement for Uniqlo's regular fit chinos? I think this response is absolutely deplorable. You can't just go measure it? Should I be this mad? lol

i have a jacket from a few years ago that's great, but their newer stuff supposedly has some issues. i've heard a lot of bad things about the pants, but the hardshells are probably ok on sale.

Who makes a really stand-out plain black tee? Sounds like an oxy-moron, but it really is a challenge to find an actual black (not dark grey) tee with a good fit and quality.

I kind of want a gauze material maybe? If I was more patient I'd wait until I found something that's a looser but thicker gauge but still obviously a tee, but that's so oddly specific and rare that I'd really go with anything.

Edit: Pocket preferred? Fuck I'm picky.

Is anyone high street making decent cropped trousers? Preferably with a bit of elastane but I know that's asking.

Otherwise I guess I'm just going to run last year's uniqlos into the ground.

I want to buy a basic CDG suit, but price is suspiciously low and seller didn't say anything except that this suit is from HOMME PLUS collection. I don't really know what to think about it. Can someone look at it and give me an opinion? Is it fake?

Cropped pants + boots. Is the goal not showing any skin? Having trouble not doing that with either of the pants I have right now and I want to wear boots during the summer but pants are too warm :(

Got this T by Alexander Wang scoop neck off eBay for a pretty good deal. Kind of concerned it's a fake. Thoughts?

Is there anyone who makes a chunky slip-on sneaker (think black Vans slip-ons, but with a sole like Eytys) in a men's size 11?

@Fatiloquent

lift etage + lift ecru are a must! The ecru staff are the sweetest! Visit Julius flagship + KKA while you're in the neighbourhood.

Also, Rick store. The manager is super nice and a fresh change from all the horrible English. Visit Yohji, CDG, UC, issey while you're there. (that area (aoyama) is packed with high end flagships....)
