Still happy with em tho

White toothpaste and a nailbrush.

I have one of those shrink-wrapped cube shirts. Its p good. Held up over several washes quite well.

I have the recycled yarn tees and although they're notorious for shrinking they've also held up pretty well.

So I've gotten rid of tons of shirts over the last few months that had been accumulating and now I'm more or less left with all of the solid colored tees that I've stocked up on the last couple months that have worked well in the summer, but they're getting boring on their own. Since I'm still nubbish, any advice on what shirts (brand, style, or otherwise) I should look at since fall and winter are around the corner? Got a few Uniqlo l/s shirts when I was in the UK over summer that I like, but I'll hopefully get something versatile for classes and going out.

I've got one of those Muji multi color recycled (maybe? don't remember really) yarns tees from a couple years back.

Good quality. Feels pretty sturdy. Runs really small though. Went up one size and still a bit small after washing.

 

They don't have it on their webstore any longer so maybe they've changed.

Dad just bought some 24oz raw denim on impulse. Put them on and asked me why the were so stiff and warm.
He then got worried when I told him they would bleed indigo all over the place, including on the white tv sofa. Said that all he wanted was comfortable jeans.

Agree. The manager at Brigade has a 5 year old pair of CPs that are beat to hell and they look great.

Sometimes I like the sneakers to be nice and white.

It's not difficult to get them white again. A cloth and some soap will clean them, then put a bit of leather conditioner on so they don't dry out too much from the soap.

Lol! I assume he went to a brick and mortar store? Why didn't he try them on first?! Are they iron heart or nudie; they are the only two I can think of that make that weight of denim.
I feel bad for your sofa laugh.gif

It was some local store. They are actually Lee 101, so the quality is so-so for the price. Not up to Japanese standards.

He said he tried them on in-store but they looked cool and he was stressed, haha.

 

I then held a small lecture on raw denim and showed him Blue in Green. Since then he's been talking non-stop about getting a pair of Samurai's next time he's in NYC. What have I done? confused.gif

 

He's actually SF-approved circa 2006 (?). Wears J.crew OCBDs and Clark DBs with selvedge denim tounge.gif

porter now has undercover and undercover x nike, missoni, white mountaineering, and alexander wang!

... and Neighbourhood and Opening Ceremy.

You might mention that they're all "coming soon" so people don't head over there looking for nonexistent stock.
