On MFA there's a bit of a backlash to CDBs and the CDB support circle, as far as I've seen. Even when they're recommended, it's with a lot of qualms and how they shouldn't be the last shoe you buy and whatever.

my best friend has a pair of suede desert boots and i must say, they're a billion times cooler and much more relevant and just age so much better as well

Uniqlo's new Indigo collection is in.

Wonder what the fit is like on those "loose taper fit" jeans. Could be very cool... maybe? Cheapo pocket tees too.

Wow, so they changed the name from Pure Blue Japan to Indigo Blue. At least they realized they fucked that up. Someone here bought those loose taper fits... show yourself!

highly recommend these Uniqlo "Light Comfort Jackets" on sale for $50 in-store and online.

Image

just picked one up at the store on 5th ave and it's really great. construction actually is surprisingly solid unlike some other qlo outerwear I've handled, and the outer shell is this badass poly/nylon blend that gives it that coveted snow-pants-swishiness factor and also makes it water resistant. was wearing it on college tours today in Boston and stayed remarkably dry despite the brief downpours. I love it to death already.

@Ques I sized tts, it's not very slim and the sleeves run a tad long so if you're into that "trendy" slim-cropped-blazer look you could probably size down. ofc recommend checking uniqlo's thorough-as-always sizing charts before any decision making though.

why would you size down to look like a slimntrendy when you could size up and look like a yeti?

really though that fleece material is quite unattractive in person in my opinion, other uniqlo fleeces seemed much nicer (though had less character obviously).

Top block is very fairly loose, tapers very aggressively to a small opening. For reference top block was looser then weird guys I was wearing that day, hem smaller

Did some Haloween related shopping today.

Has someone else noticed these Primark x Common Projects?

Image

This sweat makes identification easy:

I thought this guy at the check out was pretty inspo. Shorts, white socks pulled up, grey vans, tourquise polo shirt buttoned to the top, burgu harrington, talking shit with his mate in full sports direct regalia.

EDIT the shoes are puma baskets not common primarks come on

I'm kinda just amazed at how easily they copied nearly every visual detail of Common Projects. The weird part is the rift between people who frequent Primark and people who might know what Common Projects are. Do they have anything in place to avoid being sued for selling Cheap Primarks Ajax Lows?

not gonna pretend i know shit about common projects legal strategies but my guess is that CP figures that the people who will purchase £15 leather trainers are not the people who will buy £300 leather trainers and the cost of suing/hiring lawyers/all that shit is more hassle than it'd be worth since it's not like they're losing any purchases.

pretty sure they wouldn't be able to do anything anyways. i don't believe there are trademarks or copyrights for clothing outside of brand logos and maybe proprietary fabrics. as long as they change at least one thing, you can't really do anything about it.

Decided to take a look at the A.Wang + H&M stuff on the H&M Website today and the product shots make the pieces look like absolute rubbish compared to the promo shots or whatever.

http://www.hm.com/us/wangxhm#men

originally planned to cop the leather jacket, print sweater (not the WANG one) and windbreaker but they look awful now (go into quick look)

what be ye thoughts fellow care-tagians?

P.S leather high tops look especially awful

Visited Victoria BC twice in the last couple of months, and noticed that Sitka had a distinctly looking EG piece.

Sitka Drifter Shirt
Image

Engineered Garments Work Shirt
Image

Now it seems one thing to be making similar items based off of mutural workwear flintstone , but quite another to almost duplicate someone else's pocket patterns. That said if you like the EG look but can't get it, there is always this. The Sitka shirt was $40 at the promotions I saw.

This one is not as bad a copy, but Sitka also had this apron ($60 during promotion)
Image

which is reminiscent of other EG aprons,
Image

or these handeyesupply aprons,
ImageImage

Of course these are more varied than the shirt designs, and could be taking their cues from actual trades' aprons rather than each other, but somehow I doubt that is entirely the case. Curious to see how this sort of workwear aspect of Sitka fits in with the rest of their skater and surfer branding. In the meantime we can all pull up a chair, pour ourselves a drink, and watch as EG designs (aprons included) begin to hit the mainstream.

muji ruined one of the greatest shirts of all time this season when the bio-chemois button up was iterated to have a flat / French front placket instead of good old double stitched.

okay so the stuff isn't bad but it's probably all going back. the sweats are a weird fit... like boxy but also pretty slim at the same time??? the small was too small for me but the medium was a bad fit. nice wash on the black and blue though. the jeans...hmmm... initially i thought i'd keep them but now probably not. again the sizing is a bit all over the place. i went for a 29 which, if i'd paid more attention to the sizing, is actually a 32... bizarre. but i wanted them baggy / loose at the top so that's not so bad. the taper is fine. i think it's the wash i'm not happy with. feels a bit euro slav g star raw 2010 (especially with my boots). i think i really only like the levis dad stonewash when it comes to blue denim

COS trousers that sold out in every size in less than a week :(

"A loose, straight shape, these wide-leg trousers have a folded pleat along the front and partially elasticated waistband. Tapering slightly towards the ankle, they have slanted front pockets, welt back pockets and a classic zip fly fastening."

pics

Spoiler:

tried in store today but they didn't have them. the girl kept saying 'are they these' after showing me another pair of wool trousers... i think she thought i just fancied some wool trousers even though i kept saying 'they wide legged with a folded pleat... no, they don't have a drawstring.... no they don't have elasticated hems...' etc

tomsfood quarterly gap review

As always Gap is full of gold at the moment (kinda). These are all things worth your money (during a 40 percent off code sale ofc) that I have personally tried on and verified (professionally certified gap reviewer so you can trust me).

This jacket is awesome if you size up (always gotta size up at gap smh). If you want like the big rick parka look two sizes up will be awesome but the liner will be unwearable on its own.

Spoiler:
Image


This jacket I actually just bought as my winter jacket, sized up one and got the "tall" version. It's dope but sleeves are wayyyyy too long so gotta get them shortened at some point. It's very warm.

Spoiler:
Image
Image
Image
Image


These three blazers have the same cut and are have a nice casual cut. Only size up if you have wide shoulders cause the shoulders are a tiny bit wide. EG on a budget right here

Spoiler:
Image
Image
Image


The new "Standard Taper" fit is pretty much the ideal cut of jeans, unfortunately all the washes they have in it at the moment are garbage. Hopefully they come out with a black wash or something better than what they have now.

Spoiler:
Image


Also you will all be happy to hear that gap finally responded to givenchy's rottweiler with their own animal mascot, which I do say is more ferocious.

In COS' defence, when you assert every possible permutation of the bomber jacket, your results are going to contain a couple that have already been hit upon.

COS is to bomber jackets what Nike is to trainer design.

So, I got this, with similar rationality. A lot of people ask if it's patagonia. Anyway, short review.

I'm a J. Crew regular XS and a Uniqlo XS, so I got an XS.
+ Fit is retro, kinda boxy, but also reasonably slim in the body and short in the arms, since this is Uniqlo we're dealing with; I like that.
+ The inner lining is very warm, I take it off in some classes, would recommend for cold and unloving lecture halls with un-insulated seating.
+ The neck stands pretty strongly. I love it while driving.
+ 2 inside pockets, both very deep. Large enough for a paperback novel.
+ Side pockets are very warm, pretty big, and at a good height.
- Outside is very fluffy, denser than most pile fleece, but not super soft.
- I don't really use the chest pocket, but I guess it looks good.
Got it at $50. Wear it once or twice a week, around the house, and on errands. Do not regret, would recommend to a friend.

@rublev tall stuff just has longer arms and longer overall length for tops (at least it's that way for the jacket I got idk if all items are like that)
