I was just thinking about a statement I've read on style message boards and heard in conversations, "I don't wear what's in fashion, I wear what I like." Saying that you wear what you like as though this is an entirely individualized statement ignores the role society plays in what you like. You aren't born liking a pair of jeans, or with much of a disposition towards one type or another. Your taste is based in some way on a lifetime of interactions with your...
Haha, thanks. I tried to email Riri about this but the address on their website doesn't work. I'm going to try to get ahold of some polyester dye and give it a shot. I'll let you know how it goes.
Or... if the only thing I don't like about the hoodie is the white taping on the zipper, is this something I can just dye another color? Does anyone know how I might go about that without tearing up the garment? It's a black hoodie, so I'm guessing the dye job doesn't have to be incredibly accurate. Maybe spray a little of that on?

Also, when did you get this hoodie? PS. I appreciate all your helpful posts on this message board, LA Guy.
Has anyone ever seen the Spruce black french terry zip-up hoodie? Is that the one with the white zipper, or does it have a regular metal zipper?
I'd really like to see a picture of one of the EG belts. I'm interested in buying one.
Oh boy, I really love the fit of the RB6, especially in the thigh. Can anyone recommend another similar jean for future reference? (I'll be wearing these for a while)

Odin carries Rag & Bne as well, AFAIK. Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, Nom de Guerre and Odin don't have what I'm looking for. Any other suggestions? GWAAAHH!!
