apparently I'm closest to goth ninja, though I don't think I'm at all goth- or ninja-like

RFT: I spreadsheeted the hell out of my 2012 purchases and discovered more than half of my spending has been outerwear and shoes.
Spoiler: Breakdown! (Click to show)
Shoes: 32%
Outerwear: 20%
Knits: 14%
Shirts/polos/Ts: 6%
Suits/jackets: 6%
Pants: 6%
Jeans: 5%
Underwear: 5%
Shorts: 3%
Ties: 3%
Accessories: 1%
Gifts: 1%

* Obviously this doesn't give a picture of my wardrobe in general since I had plenty of clothes to begin with; this is just, rather arbitrarily, my recent acquisitions of the last seven months or so.

I guess that's neither surprising nor provocative, but I did discover a couple of interesting things, since I knew all the amounts I paid and had a pretty good idea about most of the retail prices. Overall I've paid roughly 45% of estimated Canadian MSRP on my clothes purchases so far in 2012; a number of things were at full retail, but my best deals were 96% off a cashmere & silk hoodie, 92% off a BNWT YSL sportcoat, and 90% off a jacket fully lined in fur (those three were all eBay scores, for the record), which helped bring the average down a bunch.

All that said, on further reflection my most satisfying purchases were items I had to splurge a bit more on. I'm uncertain whether the first part is a function of the second part or it just so happened that the things I wanted most were not handed to me on a platter of affordability. But in the end, I've bought a bunch of stuff I really love this year and only regret a few purchases which were thankfully smaller ones in the grand scheme of things.

Frank Leder fw stuff in at South Willard.
Never checked the brand before. Was quite impressed by some items. Some very nice looking hidden placket shirts in wool and a cardigan.
Looked like it was cut on the boxy side though. Anyone can confirm that?

Definitely, google image him.  It's very 1920/30's Germany.  Cool stuff but you have to commit or have a zissou/mail-moth type wardrobe already.

Did you handle the cardigans that look like the ones on SouthWillard? What is the weight/hand like? Are they knits, or some sort of heavy woven? I'm very interested, but also hesitant to pull the trigger (not to mention that it's 90F here right now.)

no he handled older stock but cuts are short and boxy still

FW12 frank leder looks are up

Haha, I was there when this was taken, dude is a good friend + we used to have places 5 min from each other. His place was basically piles of artbooks with no furniture.

There is nothing gothninja in that fit though; Bless coat+Acne jeans+Raf moto sneakers. I guess hoods and black clothes make people gothninja...

Kinda surprised Leder doesn't get more love here, would half expect there to be a dedicated thread. Cuts might not be for everyone, but the fabrics and colors are consistently on point season after season.
