- The Asos scoop necks—while obviously cheap and nothing to write home about—shrunk like crazy in the wash. Then again, I'm dumb because I put them through a hot wash. Oh well. Now they are slutty in a not-so-attractive way.
- I like wearing my black Uniqlo jeans more than I like wearing my Jesus16s. They obviously won't "age" like raw denim, but goddamn if they aren't more comfortable. I also like indigo less and less; need some cool grey jeans à la AFL's Acnes.
- Went to some basement party last night to wingman a good friend. Random girl I did not know loved my jacket; we talked for 40 minutes. Literally ran into some friends. The first thing they exclaim: "Oh my god that jacket is so coo—OH MY GOD IT IS SO SOFT." Ran into the first girl again, we talk more and join her friends upstairs in their kitchen where I am plied with more drinks and pizza (think Odysseus with Calypso, I guess? but without the whole "captive" aspect or something). It's insane how many compliments/captivated stares this jacket has gotten me lately.
- Like Mikey, I pretty much wear the same thing every day now. CPs, black Uniqlo jeans, Everlane/Hanes/AA tee, ToJ. Super satisfied.

I'd say to look to Paris and Milan for something like that, rather than Tokyo, which is more expensive, especially given the exchange. Costume National does a narrow silhouette much like that, and their outerwear was always Capasa's strong suit. Kris van Assche probably also does something similar, and I might look at Les Hommes as well. It's a little too Euroglam for my urban hobo/Killer Cowboy tastes, but I could see it looking good.
Inspired by my exchange with Zissou yesterday, I dug up some older stuff today, and am actually not wearing a S.N.S. Herning Stark for about the first time in a week. I have on a charcoal, raw seams, wool felt, Kris van Assche low 2 button sportsjacket with a standup (well, more like rolled up) collar - I think that it is from the AW09 (maybe 08?) season, over an olive brown Our Legacy shawl v-neck sweater (09?), a well aged brown going towards back Margiela belt with a blackened buckle (also 09?), and some extremely worn in, oversized, RRL slim fit jeans. Trickers chukkas in visone repello suede with a midnight Vibram sole. I even got my amused wife ("Hey, where is your cardigan? You should wear more sportscoats.") to take a bunch of photos. If I can get her to upload them to her computer, I may even post a picture, for the first time in years.
None of this is the really old stuff. Most of that is in true storage, excepting a pair of Cloak pants from 04, and a long, super heavy, a Cloak sweater from 03 in the trunk that I never open, that I am scared may be seriously moth eaten (though, theoretically, that would make it even more authentic), and a Costume National jacket from 01 (that was my favorite jacket for years, until I wore it into submission.)
