The other day a friend of mine said to me "Some day I'd like to go shopping for clothes with you.. you always wear nice stuff." Cool, sounds like fun, I'd love to help my buddy out. Then I thought back to not long ago when I was in the same situation as him - a normal guy with not much sense of style, wearing normal casual guy stuff, and wanting to improve. I came here and found out about all sorts of brands and styles I'd never seen before. Then (like many people here...
Price drop! Take a break from all that dark denim and try something different. These are from PRPS's high end denim line, PRPS Noir. All designed in NYC and manufactured in Japan. The denim is a nice heavyweight selvedge - 13 or 14 ounce at least. Lots of cool details like the sewn rivets, the signature PRPS folded back pocket design, brass-color buttons, and cracked leather patch. PRPS does some nice distressing on their Noir line without going overboard - just...
Haha, really it's just that once you get above two that you want to wear regularly it's hard to justify keeping all the others.
Bored of all that dark denim? Mix it up with some lighter colors like these light blue raws from denim specialist Civiliannaire. Made with high quality 13.5oz denim from Japan. This pair is very lightly worn (maybe 8 times?), just starting to fade. These should fade pretty quickly. Never touched water, still raw. Size is 28 but Civiliannaire fits very large.. these are like a 29 in most raw denim brands. This pair has a custom length 36" inseam (+$50) for some...
Beautiful fabric on this workwear-inspired wool shirt from Chimala, a small line that makes their stuff in Japan. This shirt has a nice slim cut and the weave has a modern look to it despite the retro pattern. Shoulders and cuffs are lined for easier movement. Being wool, it's also really warm - great shirt for cold fall / winter days. Note: I removed the pocket on the right hand side for a cleaner look. There's a very small blemish in one spot from this (pictured). ...
Vadel size 43 on Yahoo JPN. 70,000 yen buy it now seems reasonable? http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/173780018
Eck, can't you just remove the tag?
Slim cut jacket from 10 Sei 0 Otto in a soft oiled calf leather that has a nice matte finish. Has a stand-up collar and a thick wool lining which is great in winter - this jacket works well in lower temperatures. Lots of nice details like raw cut hem and cuffs, overlock stitching, and a thick gunmetal double-zip. Originally the wool lining on this jacket extended several inches past the cuffs and hem but it was a bit too long and drapey for me so I trimmed it off. I...
Yep! Thanks again.. great jacket. Wish I could wear it more.. it's so warm in LA these days.
Here's a fit pic I posted in WAYWT.. jeans are Drkshdw Berlin, black coated, although they wore out super fast and are now getting $80 worth of repairs at a specialty shop. I opened up the hems like RO does on some of their other models.. kinda like the frayed hem over boots.Also, your pics of that llama jacket look awesome. Really curious to hear what it feels like / how it fits. Is llama stiff, like horse?
