I have one belt, plain black and boring. What belt would you recommend to wear with dark wash jeans? Thanks :)

I'm in Tallahassee it get's as low as the 20s i think (my first year here) and it's pretty rainy

 

Anyone else have any recommendations on boots? I'd love to weigh all options before buying.

If you go back a page or ten, someone posted a link to some Timberland boots. Really good, IMO, if they'd just lose the heel logo.

EDIT: Maybe that was in the quick questions thread. Any case, here's one for $185:

...go two pages back, to the bottom of 265, and someone posted two more in the same price range.

for both I'd recommend getting one made by some of the posters on here or sufu that do leatherwork, such as unlucky / hollow / zissou / corter. i have a card holder and and vegtan belt by corter and an oxblood belt by zissou and all 3 are fantastic [especially the oxblood belt]. For belts you can also look into Equus Leather, forum affiliate, seem like quality belts for a good price http://www.styleforum.net/t/260644/equus-leather-bridle-leather-belts-official-affiliate-thread . really want to get one of the bottle green ones myself

dont most people just keep coins in their pockets? either way just looking at hollows stuff he has a card case / coin pouch listed http://www.flickr.com/photos/hollowsleather/2922770432/ [this is from a 3 year old post mind you but he does custom commissions so im sure you could order one if thats what youre looking for]

shog[1].gif the wallet ive had for the most of my life had a coin pocket so ive always used that. ermm i could find corters and zissous shops, but cant find any thread for unlucky/hollow.

nvm, found it!

I'm looking for a more classy wool winter coat.
I am 19, college student, 5'6", thin 130lbs. (More like 5'7(1/2)" in my Doc Martens (lol) )
Might this be a good idea, or should I look more towards a peacoat style?

http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/us/en/zara-us-W2011/119501/389097/HERRINGBONE%2BCOAT

And I would go with a size small, of course. I would think the herringbone might help to give illusion of height.
I don't feel like going to a store, since it's so inconvenient to do so, and I'm at school. So, I would just order it, and hope I like it.

thank you.

Fisch-That looks horrible. and you want a winter coat, that one is only 30% wool in the exterior. Horribly overpriced, all mall brand stuff is.


If I were you, I'd save up some more and look into a pre-owned TOJ peacoat on B&S. Probably be able to get one for about $250-$300, it will look WORLDS better than that and it will be thick wool. of if you REALLY save up, you can buy one straight from TOJ for around $500. It will be completely made to measure so it will fit you like a glove. Not sure what your budget is looking like though. Outerwear is one of the things you want to spend the most money on though, it's a staple of your wardrobe.

^yes +1 to Cyc's suggestion as well. I forgot about them.
post #4005 of 4945
Now I really wasn't looking to spend that much at all.
But there it is again, 'save your money'...
And I agree that's probably a better idea, though I don't have any income, as a college student right now.
I guess I might be able to survive through winter with my h&m rain jacket layered with my (well fitted) college sweatshirt for now...
Thanks.
