And then what? Where does SF go from there? What's gonna be the next big thing? (these are mostly rhetorical questions)
Edit: IIRC GQ already did a feature on the whole Americana trend for FW09 or something like that.

No, selvage jumped the shark when American Eagle started making bootcut predistressed selvage jeans. Or even before then, with Gap and j crew.

I think he meant pieces priced similarly to EG, not the aesthetic itself...

The problem with takin style advice (or any advice, for that matter) from publications like Esquire with such a large reading audience is that writers inevitable have to water it down in order to appeal to and be accessible for the majority. Regardless, I agree with other posters that its entirely possible to build a presentable wardrobe for work and otherwise for under 5 grand.

Wow, I never thought anyone on SF would pay good money for Supreme. Camo jacket is honestly not that bad, but that varsity is bleccch.
