Dude, now that you shaved your head, why would you wear anything besides?

I guess there are a few reasons, but I don't know how to succinctly explain this so it's spoiler'd below.

In any case, it's a stock 48 iirc, but with a slightly smaller fit in the waist. If I do sell it, it'll go up on B/S in a couple days.

The first—and most important—thing is that, even though it fits pretty well all around, I'm not 100% happy with the fit. It's too tight at the waist, so if I zip it up then any shirt that I'm wearing beneath gets constricted and "skirts" out (if that makes any sense). It also doesn't help that after 13 years of playing hockey I've got an uncommon booty-waist ratio; the jacket can kind of accentuate that in a not-so-flattering way. And I can't imagine that my waist will be getting any smaller over the years (I'd prefer it didn't, to be honest). I love wearing it—I think it looks great—but I'd be way more satisfied with something that fit better.

Beyond that I know that there are other things I'd like to have in order to round out my wardrobe: better t's, button-down's, a hat (holy shit do I ever need one now more than ever), etc. I'd also like to have a piece of outerwear for the spring that isn't black, i.e., something that can be worn with dark indigo and khaki without looking, respectively, too Grease or too Indiana Jones. For a while I'd been thinking a ToJ varsity would be nice to get for my spring outerwear. I'm still wondering if that would be best.

And maybe this last point contradicts what I've said or implied earlier in this post or in other posts, but I'm unsure about just how well "edgy" items mesh with how I want to dress. This is something I've been wondering for a while, and I still don't have any clear idea at the moment. Which isn't to say that a part of me wants to "dull down" my style... It's just, I don't really know how to explain it. I think part of this also has to do with not being able to access or try on different clothes whenever I like in order to see what I might like. So I'd rather start with the more basic stuff (as mentioned above) and then figure out where to go from there.

This has been on my mind awhile, I'm done with overconsumption and am more interested in paring down my wardrobe a bit as laughable as that sounds. Relatively, of course but I will be selling any excess slowly in addition to what I've put up. I'm kind of disgusted at this point to be quite honest. I'm not really interested in avant garde stuff because I know what I like and have been always relying on it (shouldn't even say coming back because I never left). People preach to others about branching out etc and that's fine if their wardrobe isn't already impressive but that's not for me. If anything doesn't fit me properly I will pass it on. I don't have any really crazy pieces by our standards no but by an ordinary person's metric undoubtedly so. I'm at a happy place right now and don't think I will be copping much anymore and if I do it will only be because I've sacrificed something else in order to accommodate.

I'm finally at a point where I love everything in the closet and it all gets use. Won't be selling just adding on slowly (and only new stuff I can return easily if I end up not liking it). Feels good

This was linked to me......hehe only Margiela

i fucking hate everything I own now, I don't there isnt such thing as a endpoint where you love everything in your closet. Change is always gonna come about.
post #74069 of 98391
Don't think so, at least I haven't seen it. What kind of food?

I guess it's easier for me cause I don't care about anything else other than one designer? I don't know. I have reached my apex of Caribbean, Laid Back/Navy, Cream, and White/Easy to Wear/Margiela I must be crazy but I see myself wearing everything I have right now indefinitely

Just move back to Miami, buy non-black clothing and enjoy biggrin.gif
