post #75361 of 102336
I want to try the whole casual suit + tee and sneaks/boots look this spring/summer.
Any recommendations for a suit/fabric that will scratch this itch?
I want something that is a bit fitted and slim.

Read that the Uniqlo Tasmanian suit would be a decent option. Any input/suggestions?

Something along the lines of how Parker wears his suits/ how Margiela styles them.

RFT (not a response to the last post)

Scroll through Balmain women's ss13 RTW at LVR and forget the clothes, just keep an eye on the prices.

And look at the armholes / shoulder joints on this thing:

Minimalism is great but I struggle to implement it sometimes.

Speaking of that stuff, and following all of that spreadsheet talk, I made one, just of things to sell, and it is really, really long. How did I acquire so much clothing? It is really time for a spring cleaning.

I'm so close to clearing out all of the stuff I've gathered and don't wear. It's crazy how much stuff you just end up having around...it feels good to have it gone!

Yeah, if selling stuff was as easy as buying it I'd have no problem downsizing. Need to put it all on ebay I think.

If you look she picks it up with the white wrapper that they sit on still attached to the chocolate and shoves it in her mouth. Or maybe the chocolate was white.

Either way, just joking around biggrin.gif

My closet is the perfect size at the moment albeit missing some shoes and misc. items like a pocket square, scarf, and I would like to eventually start wearing a watch again.
I could downsize even more, more redundant things like shirts, tees, sweaters...could just donate it all and make life a lot easier. Hey, that's a great idea, Ghetto! redface.gif

I think I would be coming full circle once I pick up a leather jacket, which has still been pretty elusive. Crossing my fingers for Siki Im F/W '13

random fashion verbiage :

as we shortly enter another spring, a new year begins, blossoming scents, flocks and flowers, daylight graces linen again. am likely getting the third one, have tried a bunch of different stuff and these are what i keep remembering most.

cdg2man - everydaywear, rei wins at your expense. conventional yet no less pleasing, it's so easy, alternating from frankincense and the aroma of a snuffed candle.

rose oud, by killian - smells like what old men in the mid east douse themselves with by the liter en route to friday prayer. and my yoga teacher, she likes rose water too. though for many it may seem at first feminine, this gender lineage is an american, culturally-constructed myth that leads only to the fellas missing out on a superior, transcendent scent. the rose of eastern mediterannean pastures with the bite of oud.

ambre sultan, SL - playful splash of sunshine, notes of vanilla, a sweet scent for the sunny celebratory days spent in the palace pavilion entertaining the people.

sarassins, SL (nonexport) - intoxicatingly seductive, probably too feminine for most (so give it to her) but with spring in the air, is that the new jasmine blooms or is it the fellow that passed by draped in silk and a funny hat, possibly a monocle or pocket watch somewhere, lots of colors.

black afgano, nasomatto - a prohibitive cost hinders further exploration, but no more than 2 or 3 carefully placed dabs are required to revel in the rich herbaceous splendour. dark, drug-y, but perhaps too over-the-top attempt at grunge cum orientalism. it smells of spice, but can't say which. certainly not hashish, which was its cliched inspiration...

Rose Oud is nice but everyone in the USA will relate it to a very feminine old-woman type perfume. Also, it pales in comparison to a good mukhallat that uses real oud and all-natural ingredients, but such a mukhallat might cost around $50/mL. Check out Agaraura's Al-Jazzab, it's $145 for about 3 mL. If you like this type of scent it is worth buying a sample to check it out, and 3 mL will last for about a few hundred wears, so the price really isn't that horribly expensive...

After trying hundreds of frags the only "conventional" one I wear with regularity is Puredistance M. I also wear a handful of pure oud oils and mukhallats from Agaraura. Most mainstream men's colognes come off as horribly synthetic and are really annoying. cdg2man is full of iso-e super, one of my least favorite aromachemicals.
