Can some one help me ID this bag a bit more. Is it North Face white label? What's the difference between white and brown labels. Any idea on the age? Thanks for any help CT.

Three questions.

1. Recs for compression socks or knee socks to go with pods? Would prefer simple Adidas ones like these as opposed to all back, but I can't find them anywhere. The only ones sorta close are BBS11 but they have the logo on them.

Spoiler:

2. Deciding whether or not to sell this UC bomber. It doesn't get wear, I don't like keeping stuff for collecting's sake, and most importantly, it's tying up money that could be spent elsewhere. On the other hand (harhar), I might never find it in my size again (4), or at a reasonable price should I regret selling. And there's a slight to decent? chance its value will appreciate in the future

Spoiler:

3. Would I have a better chance of selling things on Grailed if I re-post the items that have dropped in price 3-4 times, instead of dropping it further and further?

Now.

I also printed the Island design larger on some totes. Those are going up tomorrow once I take a nice photo.

Edit: Rams, I checked the blanks I had lying around but nothing that I think would fit you based on your purchase. I'll take a trek out to scour more source blanks soon.

i found them. That color way is kinda hard to find tbh. It's some brand called Lafeet, from their collaboration with General Garments Casanova & Co. Shoulda known by the Edwina pants in the pic (they stock Edwina)

Is there anything special about the straps from headporter tankers, or can I replace it with any laptop/briefcase strap from Amazon? Any recs for one that's padded throughout?

Fuk

But yeah do it, just be careful with sizing and don't ask for too much in the way of detailing because they just won't do it

Suggestions for a clean, navy/dark navy relaxed trouser, preferably with belt loops if elasticized, preferably cheapish. Was looking at these COS ones but they're sold out on the US site. Also looked at the other-shop store brand.

Is tumble drying a primaloft jacket a good way of re-fluffing the down? I got it dry cleaned without knowing that's bad and it's less puffy than before. Was told to tumble dry the jacket in a duvet cover on low and with a tennis ball.

@maj

that raises some new questions. suppose i want 2 look like i sit at desks but could also make a desk

threw out my black uniqlo slim str8 because bela told me that anything non goretex/<16 pockets was 'lol so 2015'. now i realise i want them again but new ones seem to be crappy lightweight fabric.
who makes a decent black jawn? our legacy first cut maybe?

Are you talking about the "normal" uniqlo denim or the selvedge ones? I assume that they're OK, limited selection on the website (and i think in store it's only in the store that has that uniqlo denim pop up on the top floor)

http://www.uniqlo.com/uk/store/goods/180046

Normal uniqlo denim has got rubbish but I assume the selvedge ones are "good enough"

Of course for my own personal needs I wear swrve regular fit "durable cotton" every single damn day and wouldn't go back to normal jeans if you paid me.

i think it was the selvedge i tried, they weren't terrible just much less nice than the ones from a few years ago.
swrve doesn't look bad actually, you mean these? do they ever do them in black?

Having to carry something around in your hands is not the look, but they do exist if you really wanted one

@perks you're probably not into them but stoney makes very good jeans
