Styleforum Top Picks
1. People on here, especially the SW&D side, are not often loaded, and buying one piece means not buying another. Therefore lower priced items mean more bang for their buck.
2. Not having access to these items in real life means taking a total chance on sizing, construction, fabric, how it fits in with your wardrobe, condition, etc. The lower the price, the easier it may be to flip if it doesn't work out.
3. Everyone likes deals.
I'm typically an M in EG tailored jackets (bedford, etc), and their slimmer cut shirts (tab collar, western). The two Needles pieces I own (a rebuild jacket and a shirt) I also have in an M, so the same size.
I think in my very limited experience, the standard Needles stuff tends to be cut narrower in the shoulder and wider in the body than EG. The rebuild pieces, well each piece is unique and I think it varies. I saw measurements for a rebuild mods parka where an xs would fit me, I've seen other pieces (like the fatigue shirt Inventory has) that look like they run small. My rebuild jacket fits me perfectly tts.
Nepenthes are pretty good at responding to emails I think, so probably best to contact them if you're interested in something and don't know how to size.
This way everything I buy fits great, and would only sell because I don't like it anymore.
Since I was born in Cuba I can't vacation there and enjoy it fully. I feel like shit staying at a "5 Star Hotel" while the family is mixing powder for milk. If you go to Cuba just enjoy it look at the 50's era cars still running with makeshift everything, clear and untouched beaches (shores are plentiful in lobsters etc since they are off limits) tropical drinks, and the hospitality. I met plenty Canadians while I was there and they looked like they did not want to leave...ever
I'm at a point where I don't want to visit anywhere else in the world and just drift around the Caribbean for a couple months at a time until I touch every island and cay
Jet, I'd say come down to the MIA, stay at the Delano
Good advice for travel anywhere IMO
I don't really get why people stay in super expensive places abroad, especially when you can easily hook up an apartment these days online
