I think he was giving them a good review on MFA but I was hoping for another opinion before I bought one. Not sure if woolrich is worth the price diff.

who makes cool necklaces, other than walter van beirendonck, I think those are a bit chunky for my taste. I like the idea of wearing a black or blue (or white I suppose) necklace with some of the more sportswear-y things I wear. I really like this Astrid Anderson but it's out of my price range by a few miles.

@germinal Thanks for the suggestion to check out Cosmic Wonder, I wouldn't have known to look at them for wallets. Really enchanted with this one:

How should you size on them? I've been considering one of their henleys for a while.

Any good stores worth checking out in Krakow, Poland?

(Is there a more specific thread for this question?)

@blastoise

I bought a slim fit flannel in store. It doesn't look like they have slim fit online yet, but I can't really tell you about how the regular fits fit because I didn't try any on.

I went medium in slim fit, and it fits similar to a WvG before dinner in medium as well. The flannel is a bit looser, but that is fine. I think they fit similar to the small uniqlo linen shirts, so pretty much perfect in my eyes. Sleeves are also really long for you tall folk.

ive decided to embrace a duffle coat this winter, no buttons needed. ive narrowed the search a bit but still havent found anything im in love with. looking for something deep black, wool, and fairly long (at least knee length) hopefully for under $500.

http://www.dufflecoatsuk.co.uk/mens-lon ... t-charcoal this looks like it would be nice if it came in a dark black :(
http://www.gloverall.com/mens/classic-duffle-coat.html this looks similar but the toggles are shiny, the plaid in the hood sucks, it doesnt look very dark either, and its quite expensive for my budget.

also any winnipegers want to recommend me a good place for slim button-ups since club monaco is no more? hint hint @arcticsound. ive heard some people recommend mexx but im hesitant.

You can still get Club Monaco online, the fit of the shirts are pretty uniform so you're safe if you know your size. Danali has Naked and Famous, and Tiger of Sweden, and Scotch & Soda shirts, Normandy carries some Gitman Bros and Norse Projects, and It might be worth checking out Harry Rosen in the mall, they have Burberry Brit shirts.

I know this isn't "Ask a question, get a non-relevant answer" but if there's any chance you're looking at other kinds of english coats there's this place where the quality of some of these vintage coats looks nice, happened across them and wanted to put them out there in case someone's interested.

The biggest one is Browne Thomas, that has lots of nice stuff. I've never really shopped in Dublin though so that's the only one I've been to lol

Grailed is supposed to have a womenswear site soon™ so maybe wait for that? If not then eBay might be only other choice @balloons

In terms of subreddits, /r/femalefashion has a buy/sell/trade on Fridays with higher end items, and /r/wardrobepurge and /r/thriftythread are the other ones (though things go pretty cheap on the latter two).

SuFu and SZ both hold women's classifieds (though SuFu is just one big marketplace).

when i take pictures using the timer setting on my camera, how do i keep the camera focused on me. it inevitably takes blurry shots when i do this and for the life of me i can't figure out why

also, i got this camera from my dad and have no idea how to mess with the aperture and all that and haven't the faintest clue of what all that means, anyone have a guide or something that explains camera?

How good of an idea is it to get some wood hangers for my clothes, the ones that have the drop off so they don't get those shoulder dimples?

Thinking of looking at goodwill for some but don't want to get a bunch if they aren't that important.

My friend was talking to a Japanese personal shopping service yesterday and apparently there are a few of these available at Ginza DSM. They're $3,000 each.

Are there any understated creepers for men?

I don't want anything like the Prada creepers. Something black and simple.

what's the cotton cashmere blend that dana lee uses like? Does it age well? I hate when poly-cotton sweat shirts inevitably die after being washed too much

I tried finding info in this area, but the only half black flags I can find of a political nature are half black half red for anarcho syndicalism, and half black half yellow for anarcho capitalism (but you probably already knew that).

Apparently, this is used in racing
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racing_fl ... white_flag
A diagonally divided black-and-white flag is displayed with a car number to indicate a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. This flag can be displayed if a car tries to intentionally drive another car off the course, or if a driver gets out of his/her car and initiates an altercation with another driver.

Some administrators (NASCAR and IndyCar) do not distinguish mechanical problems or unsportsmanlike conduct from rules violations and simply use the solid black flag for all violations.

Edit: Ahh, Anarcho-Pacifism
Image

But all the same, I picked it up in a military surplus store, and there were a ton of them. I feel like there's a more mainstream interpretation.

Whats the consensus on olive chinos with black shoes? I've not really seen anyone say no to the idea in my research, but then again I've not seen it be mentioned at all.
