I talked about his plans for that stuff just a couple hours ago when we met up. I know Boston has a hell of a winter (I'm from Minnesota myself) and from what he was saying, you better be layering quite a bit if you want to survive an actual cold winter with what he's putting out. The good news is that he's making it so that two of his coats will end up working well together, and judging from the materials, it should be nice and toasty warm with them layered on top of each other.

That's what i figured. I'm planning on just getting some thermalwear type stuff (maybe that uniqlo heattech things) and wearing them under a lot of stuff so i dont' have to layer quite as much

You know what's fucked up, when I arrived to work in Korea, it was 1026 KRW to the USD. When I left, it was 1560 or so to the USD. Now, it's back to 1120 or so. From a money perspective, leaving Korea for China was so fucking stupid, I'd be ahead by tens of thousands if I had stayed there. Still kicking myself daily for that.

Yeah when I came it was around there. Then the KRW tanked, and I was pissed because my money lost a lot of value. So I was smart and saved it. Over the summer is when I started sending money back to the USA to pay off loans. Now that I know things will tank more I'm going to conserve until it hits close to my mark, then send off like $1500 a month or so. No idea on the China situation but honestly from my time in Shanghai (half a year) I'd say that Korea is the better deal of the two. I do miss $20 all you can eat sushi/fillet/wine though.

What do people mean when they ask "what's the quality like?" I mean, when it's a poster that has been around or i know he knows his shit, i understand but when people are asking about low-mid brands and wondering about the "quality" what are they talking about? It seems that some people have this weird view of quality and needing it to be at some hypothetical number 1-10 in order to buy it. Seems like some don't take into account price, how it compares to other similar brands/pieces, how much quality you really need/want out of a certain item, if something like extra stitching is more important that the actual fabrics used, etc...

^^I've noticed that alot in the past few months. I wonder if they mean durability or what. Doesn't help that the item they're talking about is usually just plain ugly haha.

Lately I've had no desire to wear anything but white shirts. 75% of the time it's a T, the other times a button up. I'm going to need to start layering more with the cold weather and I'm stocking up on knits, but the first thing I always reach for if it's climatically appropriate is white.

I do this quiet a lot. I usually do it by asking how it compares to another brand. What I'm asking is will it last longer and is the fabric better.

I don't get it either. People seem to have this assumption that shit's just going to fall apart, but even stuff at H&M is going to survive normal wear. You'd think these people were doing construction work in this shit. Although, I guess BoO is exempt from this.

buying clothes off the internet fucking sucks. you think you're saving money, but they never fit exactly how you want, and you end up with a wardrobe of slightly misfitting clothes

a perfect fit is often overrated and sometimes just not the right thing. I've seen guys in WAYWT here wearing what were considered to be perfectly fitting clothes, and frankly it was doing them no favors...

I'll only buy something off the internet if I can get detailed measurements on it. And, yeah, I've had to be a little less OCD about a 'perfect' fit, which I've lately expanded to mean 'can actually move in it, but isn't baggy'. Some of the stuff I was wearing was a little too slim.

+1. Well, obviously, a "perfect fit" is best, since it's synonymous with "ideal fit", but that doesn't mean that everything fits like it would on a Macy's mannequin. That's just... boring.
