I'm almost sold on a TOJ collared moto, and the only thing holding me back is, ironically, the collar. Why is it so high off the top edge of the jacket? Seems like it would look better if it was sitting flat. To get an idea of what that would look like, I did a super quick Photoshop mockup showing a flatter collar: I dunno, looks better to me, but I'm guessing there's some reason for the way it's designed. Does TOJ do custom collars?
Picked up this Rag & Bone cardigan on sale at Bergdorf Goodman. I'm liking the slim cuts lately.. but is this too slim perhaps?
I think they were $475 retail and came out to ~$330 after the various discounts, plus ~$45 on a gift card. But that sale required you buy two pairs of shoes to get all the discounts, so you can't evaluate it totally on its own.
Here's the heritage Mercer:Does look a bit dark - usually product shots are a lot lighter than the item looks in person unless you're out in bright sunlight.Here's one from MOMA that looks kind of interesting.. almost a medium brown, and pretty clean, slim design. Not sure where to buy 'em though.. the few e-tailers I've seen that carry MOMA only seem to have a few of their older models.
Thanks.. yeah I looked at those - but again, they're suede! . No one seems to be making quality slim leather boots in a medium brown leather.
And now the question: Where can I find a *slim* side-zip or chelsea boot in medium brown with a nice patina, not too dressy? I'd love a cut like Fiorentini+Baker Elf (which I have a pair of, but only ever seem to come out in Suede or dark leathers): But in this kind of color: Seems simple, right? But yet there don't seem to be any options..
Before I ask the requisite "where can I find a shoe/boot like x" question I thought I'd post some content of my own: Officine Creative suede brogue boots: Picked these up at Bloomingdales a couple months back when they were having a big sale. I like 'em so far. Build quality is great and it's hard to find a boot with a light colored sole that isn't too dressy. They have some nice subtle distressing.
Bloomingdales has some pretty good sales going on now. In the shoe dept, it's 20% off if you buy 2 pairs, plus $25 off every $100 up to $400, PLUS $15 on every $100 on a gift card ("bmoney" which is only valid next week though). They have some pretty good brands that rarely go on sale. I bought a pair of Officine Creative suede brogue boots that were pretty nice, and a pair of Fiorentini + Baker sneaker-boots. (The F+B Elf's in black suede were also in stock, and those...
Though I'm not a huge fan of washed leather, thought this one was kinda nice. I bought a shearling jacket from this brand on sale recently and the quality seems good.
Stumbled on these MMM's at some italian e-store. Kinda like the distressed effect 60% off if you're a size 43..
