harm salmon your swag levels are immense. I don't know whether to tell you to save up loads to buy cool shit or to completely ignore cool shit and just spend $30 at thrift or H&M or whatever because you'll probably make it look good anyway.

probably a stupid question, but there are some BNWT Wolverine 1K seconds at the local thrift store for 55 bucks. Not my size, thought about buying and reselling, any thoughts from you guys?

I'm looking for some cool rain protection in a reasonable price range (like sub $200?) so I don't get wet in the rain. What kinds of amazing suggestions for brands/styles do people have?

Why not stick to EG mikey? It suits you, unless you want something a bit more formal than what they offer?

OL looks kind of cool though to be honest. Get the trousers too. Just in case

Contemplating a couple things.

Image

Been eyeing this nonnative hat on grailed. I really love the idea of a big floppy hat, and like how I've seen it worn by people I know and people in photographs on the internet, but I can't really figure out if it's for me or if it would feel really affected to wear.

Image

Also been eyeing some Patrik Ervell modified Red Wing Postmans (or maybe just some regular postmans) for more of a shitkicker black derby type shoe, without the contrast edge on my Tricker's.

Looking for blue suede slip ons.

I found these http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/ca ... Nn8P8HAQ#/

Image

My issue is that I want something closer to the classic Vans navy, just not in canvas.

Image

Any suggestions?

I've wanted jeans in this color/wash since i saw the film years ago.. thinking about getting the gray uniqlo jeans washing them with some bleach, unless someone knows where i can get something super similar and/or has a better suggestion. all the gray jeans i've seen are just a bit too dark.

@tomsfood, not even close

I looking for a grey (doesn't have to be grey) pullover hoodie in probably XL, that runs long in the body and has a straight and loose waist—something that will fall straight. Possibly something with a cool graphic or design. reigning champ is too slim. supreme doesn't really have what I want as far as I know. hanes and champion will probably be a little too thin and a little too cheap looking.

http://shop.havenshop.ca/collections/sa ... parka-grey

didn't look at the measurements for this so IDk if the XL just fits like a L, but it doesn't have waist ribbing so it'll definitely fall straight/loose.

http://nonnative.com/nn-c2703/

this doesn't cinch in at all and is very long but in north america will likely be $450+

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nike-Mens-SB-Dr ... 20f5cadd17

i don't know how the collar on this looks irl but its not expensive and definitely long or at least long ish (and you can buy 2XL if you really want lol)

edit: i'd rec a tech fleece hoodie but rike only made the hoodie pullover for women for some reason...

man, that nonnative is exactly what I'm looking for. ah shit.

nike is cool but not what I'm looking for. still might buy though, since it's so cheap and would be useful for spring.

This doesn't really answer your question, but if you're looking for blue slip-ons by Vans, the collab with EG is getting a re-release this Friday and navy just got added as a colorway.
