@balloons The 511s I'm trying to get rid of in b&s are indigo with elastane so I guess they exist.

My question: why hasn't @cameron- managed to convince his fashion designer room mate to come onto care tags?

What's the best Android selfie app? features:

Ability to take a photo on timer, with a burst. (preferably a programmable burst time) so the ben would wait 15 seconds then take, say 3 photos 1 second apart.

Also the app should meter and focus when the shutter fires, not when you press the shutter. (IE meter and focus when I'm in front of the camera, not when I push the button and the camera is pointing at a white wall)

recs for warm outerwear? something warm enough for me to wear just a tee or thin sweat and still be ok. i'm avoiding peacoats because they wouldn't fit in my wardrobe but am not opposed to other wool alternatives. entertaining the idea of getting a down jacket.

Does anyone know when the rest of RO SS14 are going to arrive to the stores? seems like most sites still have a lot of pre-order items? (sorry if it's a dumb question, first time I'm acctually paying attention to this)

what does it mean when sneakers are "washed canvas"? referring to these:

could I soak the canvas of a pair of regular cons in water for a bit and they'd look like that?

What's everyone's opinion on these as an alternative to the Undercover sandals?

Also: Does anyone know how to get Suicoke sandals in the US? Rakuten didn't have any good colors.

is there a name for ... I don't know what to call it. modern/contemporary menswear? the type of looks/garments that are interchangeable between the street and the office, where either sneakers or oxfords would both work just as well. I like the designs of Ervell a lot.

I hate genre-fication but I'm looking for flintstone for this type of style.

it's easier to list brands that fit the description than to give it a name, but the look you describe is very modern and minimalist in my opinion.

ervell, prada, acne, ami, our legacy, jil sander, often raf simons. there's a huge list of them. the strongest signifier I associate with this style is that it tends to trade in shapes and garments which have very few social connotations, or at least have few connotations in 2014 (maybe that's all it means to be in vogue?). simple and clean wool coats, solid knits, straight or cropped trousers, minimalist derbies and baller trainers.

wow, thanks - I think you hit the nail on the head really perfectly. maj too. my main concern is that these designers (especially european ones) may aim some of the garments at tall and skinny builds - I'm very 'average'.

it's strange I don't see these type of looks in WAYWTs more, despite the fact it's something the majority of brands are doing. trainers are interesting - something I see a lot are middle aged dudes walking around in their dress shirts and khaki slacks, then some out of place asics trainers or something. i wonder if the sneaker is creeping into the office, and if young people can leverage that into something 'cool'.

I'm short and of a very average, or even stocky build and I wear a good amount of Our Legacy and Acne and for the most part all the Raf stuff I've tried (or owned) has fit me well being tts. I'm sure it'll workout for you as well

Any recs for good white jeans? Might just settle for Uniqlo but if anyone has good suggestions Id would be more than open to listening

To respond to hooplah, definitely not of a skinny fit but i still would want them relatively slim. I can't do super long inseams because I'm super short so preferably something that would come in shorter inseams. It also gets stupidly hot in Orlando so would definitely need a lighter fabric (which i assume most white jeans would come in) Pure white, or an off white like the ones Ervell has this season would both be great, Ervell ones are too slim for me though

these are straight, pretty close to 501s, but are no joke the nicest jeans I've ever handled. not pure white but whiter than ecru.

Image

can't pull a link off yoox mobile but shouldn't be hard to be find. seriously, material and details on these jeans impress me more than anything I've ever seen from Japanese brands or Roy type artisans. has all the prerequisite denim head details if you care about that stuff (leather washer hidden rivets, complete piping, chain stitch blabla)

would buy three more pairs if my size was still in stock

where do you buy presidents? Their site just lists their own showrooms, they don't have any other stockists on there.
