post #100831 of 109053
having a small closet sucks

it either forces you to pair down your wardrobe, which you may start making rash decisions and regret it later

or I think far worse depending on your perspective is asking whether you should focus on one direction (aesthetic, designer, etc.)

At least this is from my experience.

I recently cleared out the second section of my closet thinking I'd have more space. That didn't last long...sigh

* * *

when shirts, jackets and pants start getting crammed, and the hanger is not hanging straight but tilted because all the clothes are pushing every which direction, i get really uneasy butbut.gif

shirt collars start getting pushed in a little, lapels get squished, pants are okay i guess (they might wrinkled a little)

man, I know how ya feel
I am in the process of finally unloading some stuff I have been meaning to for quite awhile, and i know another round is coming in a few months. In the long run, though, I've never regret selling something - there's always something new and exciting around the corner.

Speaking of which, if anyone wants to buy any of these items (more coming all today), holler at me:

I really like how la garconne did their women's stylings. Especially the one with the Margaret howel large coat

Unrelated, might be letting go of my Rick Owens intarsia. Going to try it on again when i get home and decide.

if you're looking for something cheap, i'm going to (unsurprisingly) recommend wool overs.

whereas this ebay 3-ti (three tiger) find isn't nearly as luxe:


In conclusion, I recommend buying 1980s topps baseball cards as an investment rather than 1980s cdg shirts

Please. Anybody could tell you that you should buy Donruss or Fleer in the 80's. Lone exception is the '85 Topps (so many rookies).

Yes, except you (living in densely populated areas) have to deal with legitimately small closets. Toasty, on the other hand, has a walk-in, but not one big enough that you can lay down and do push-ups.

Are casual wool pants a good idea? Tried on the OL "tweed" ones today, which fit great but felt slightly itchy. What worries me most is how they´ll deal with winter winds, hate the idea of some icy winds blowing straight through them (given the looseish nature of non-felted wool fabrics) in January.... advice?

The fibres trap air fairly well, but flannell or very heavy tweed is needed for windproofing if you're going with wool (unless you fancy long johns). Heavy moleskin works well against wind and corduroy is okay.I'm tempted by the highwaisted Le Laboureur cords as winter trousers...

You can have tightly woven wool. Most of the pants I wear are made from wool, and the the dense, heavy ones are what I wear in the winter time. I've never had an issue with itchiness. Wool flannel, in fact, used to be used for underwear.

flannel and serge seem pretty windproof ime, tweed not so much unless they're fully lined

Thanks! Heavy (british) moleskin and cord is my winter staples! I can definitely recommend the low waist straight legged Le Laboureur cords (heaviest fabric ive encountered) for winter.

Yes British moleskin is much heavier than the French stuff. Fustian fabric generally is perfect for cold weather.

I've coincidentally been looking for moleskin trousers too. I've found some British webstores - Hogg's of Fife, Cordings, some others that are eluding me at the moment. I have no idea of the fit or quality on any of these. I'm surprised that I can't find them from the typical american places - neither Brooks Brothers, Bean, Lands End are stocking moleskin. There are some interesting pairs from Freemans on ebay.

All b&s listings that link to grailed will be deleted. Actually, since the guy is so scuzzy, I'll be making the term restricted so that there will be no links to that site.
