Man what a joke. Is there a way to re-twist?

Haha, of course. It's just cotton and not really twisted, you just let it dry, throw in dryer if you want it to shrink and when it is moisture free it is easily twistable.

I thought he had been progressively retiring for years? Anyway doesn't matter, I liked the last two collections and it's not complex like the woman's stuff so I don't foresee them totally fucking it up before a few seasons.

BOO did a badass super thick wool pair for this season. Probably a little on the heavy side for loungewear but they looked real cool. Didn't try them on though.

MMM is less logo'd Moschino It's too literal now with the references and it's too in your face vs. being subtle

Thank God for Roden Gray. Honestly there aren't that many cities in the US that have a store that good. TO has Nomad. If you compare where you live to NYC you're obviously going to be disappointed, but if that's the case then fucking move there.

Idk, but it worries me. Geez this is quoted from a while ago.

Scraggly dudes wearing white 70s Vegas getup? I dig it. But yeah, the anniversary collection with the disco balls was sorta hardcore on the nighlife references. I'm still thinking about the disco-lapel jacket.

Next spring is terrible, renzo will undoubtedly utilize lots of archived pieces for lack of design talent.

It wouldn't be so bad if you could order from the US online and not be hit by the exchange rate, shipping, and customs.

Personally, I'd love to shop more from SF affiliates but these factors add up and they make sale items barely worth buying.. especially when you don't have cash to burn

I concede though that the Canadian Dollar has been getting stronger recently.

I never regret buying a new Uniqlo white tee, I get exactly what I want and merely feel I need to replace them when they're worn out.


My fashion thought: I keep having these slight change of direction every couple of months or so. By now they don't really detract from the overall direction of my wardrobe but give it more depth, or so I like to think. I had a suiting phase where I got a couple of TB and shirts. Also sold a bunch of shoes and got more elegant/menswear ones.

Nowadays:
- I'm really feeling white garments (shoes, jackets, shirts)
- I wear more light sweaters than I used to (not big on sweaters, prefer tee+jacket)
- I tend to be more casual and hardly wear suits
- I added some colours
- I need some "fun" designers like De Castelbajac and wear more Junya/CdG.

Next phase will probably be a return to suiting and dress shoes.

I do have "favorites" the problem is that I tend to jump onto the lesser known American or Japanese designers and end up paying $400-500 at full retail for something, when I could get something really amazing at that same price if I just bought it from the B&S forum or Supermarket or something. I have some Juun J stuff + a raf sweater I bought at full retail that I know I'll love for a long time... but it's never fun if you're wearing the same shit every day, even when that shit is really nice.

I'm more and more getting into suits and dress shoes, myself.

I need to get some fancy knits and some good trousers and everything will be on a much higher level.
