Five Favorite Articles of Clothing (that you own)

post #1 of 152
Thread Starter 
Five Faves! I know we've had this thread before, but I couldn't find a good one and they're fun so here goes: Post your five fave articles of clothing you actually own (and a little bit about each item), I think this can include things like belts, bags and shoes too. I'm ranking them in order of one being my absolute favorite and so on I've retooled my wardrobe pretty dramatically, last time it was things like boat shoes and aa hoodies hah. 1. Julius Chain Blazer Wrinkled black blazer, No buttons, but rather fastens with an antique brass chain, just steampunk enough without being costume-y 2. Julius Shredded hem Longsleeve tee serious post-apocalyptic warrior steez, also beautiful cotton cashmere blend 3. NDC derbies - black distressed calf, leather sole, curved toebox 4. Attachment bag - black distressed calf skin, ridiculously durable (holds like 4 textbooks and a 17'' laptop) 5. Coated H&M jeans - surprisingly awesome fit, better than a lot of pricey denim brands, and have held up very well. Incidentally that exact list is one of my favorite outfits to wear (though I sometimes swap out the Julius blazer for an Alexander Mcqueen coat, or the shredded hem tee with a DRKSHDW one).

Oh well, here goes:

1. Stetson's Temple hat, in brown fur felt.
2. BB OCBD, white or blue, they are both perfect!
3. A hand knit, blue cardigan, gifted to me by my late mother more than 40 years ago.
4. A2 Flight Jacket, issued to me and then sold to me, when I retired ().
5. AE Leeds, in #8 shell cordovan.

Sourcing and the length of time each of these items has been in my service lead me to conclude, it is all good!

1. kmw rockers-- I had been looking into these and crates for a while, a friend was willing to part with them for a decent price so i copped.
2. std issue peacoat- my fiance gave it to me in Lincoln,NE after we'd been dating a while. It fits me perfect and is warm and great. my go to coat for the omaha winters
3. heather grey hanes t-shirt-- it is rare that you find a tshirt that fits you the way you want at wal-mart. i like the fact that its unlimited edition that I could go and buy 100 tommoorw.
4. threadbare adidas t-shirts. -- I used to work at a clothing donation processing center. We'd sort up clothes, make them into bales and ship them to 3rd world countries. One of the perks of the job was that every week we could take 5 lbs of stuff with us. I ended up selling a lot of stuff, or having a lot of just crap... but I love these tees a ton. They are really old, super threadbare, made in USA adidas t-shirts. The designs are pretty basic, but I remember seeing one of the shirts in a PSA about heroin once or something. Both have holes in them from wear, and are perfect. I don't know how many times it had been washed prior to me owning it, or how many times i've washed it... but if I could wash a hanes t 1000 times or so and get that nice patina I'd be so happy.
5. levis 511's-- they look sharp, fit well, and I got two pair for 50$. I am sad they aren't making the twills anymore... as I have said many a time they are my 'wonder pant'

1) Woolrich Woolen Mills Black Maine Guide jacket in melton wool (FW08) - sturdy, durable, essentially goes with anything - and distinctive without being overly fashiony. Not too Americana, not too slick. My favorite piece of outerwear by far

2) Mr. Olive G-Type Sweat jacket in green/grey (FW08) - just a great layering piece or light outerwear piece - tight without being body hugging. Durable and tough (I hate urban warrior looking clothes that actually can't stand up to a good bar fight), a

3) Robert Geller Double belt (FW08) - just an amazing buckle, and the raw black leather has weathered remarkably well.

4) KMW dark brown belt (SS09) - hands down the toughest belt I have. 1/4" saddle leather, and a great buckle. Plus, I won it as a prize. I never win prizes. When I travel, this and the Geller belt are always taken.

5) My beloved waxed cotton Engineer's Cap from Fred Bare (they were made in... 2003?). If anyone can find another one in black for me, I will pay them handsomely.

For bottoms, I really like my Wings+Horns narrow fit jeans and my 5EPxSF jeans (slim and slimmer), which really match my outfits (color and cut) and match well with my Common Projects midtop Achilles and Desert Boots (both grey), but none of these really beat out the much more unique pieces above.
