Looking for a slouchy cardigan sub $200 similar to the nonnative belted ones. Can't find any on stockists, so I figure I should spring for an alternative. Also, any recs for suede boots sub $300?

You are doing this:

Code: Select all
[img]http://imgur.com/RtMIifO[/img]


Linking the imgur page.

But need to link the actual image:

Code: Select all
[img]http://i.imgur.com/RtMIifO.jpg[/img]


To make life easy imgur provides you the BBCode for the forum when you upload.

Also, use the "large thumbnail" version, so that the picture is appropriately sized. It'll link to the full version.

What are some good options for a plain(not covered in pockets) black or olive parka (preferably fishtail) in a technical-ish(ie Carhartt, ace x alpha) fabric for less than $350? I was looking at carhartt and ace hotel x alpha industries but they're both sold out in my size.

I have it in an olive camo and I quite like it. Size down once for a normal fit or TTS if you want the oversized m51 look.

Jrisk has it in black;

keep in mind, it's really just a shell. you're probably gonna want to layer or get a liner. I wear a fleece under mine.

I'm thinking about asking luxire for a placket shirt. all the ones I've owned or handled have always been too trim and in delicate/formal fabrics.. looking for something a little more wearable

oxford is an obvious choice but wondering if anyone had any ideas. has to be a little thicker / more textured than a thin broadcloth

Do you mean hidden placket? Have considered that myself though I would go for delicate/formal fabrics. My issue has always been length: need to be short enough to wear untucked

Damn, you missed out. somebody on sufu was selling a nonnative one for really cheap, but then decided to keep it. if you can find the sale maybe you can convince him to sell?

how big are designers' production runs? I mean obviously it varies piece by piece and designer by designer but let's say a medium size designer that's probably familiar to everyone on here but maybe not to the world at large. thousands? tens of thousands?
