casey, if you drive in the mountains a lot check out the Subaru WRX, 2006+. Might still be too pricey but they are fun cars with a lot of power and all wheel drive. Albuquerque doesn't get much snow but Taos isn't far... my parents lived there until last year.
the unconstrained environment of SW&D with mixed silhouettes works better (not appropriate for work though).
think i have spent more money in the last few months trying to dial in CM attire for work than I have in 2.5 years buying/selling in the SW&D scene
I feel pretty comfortable with SW&D and thought I could venture in CM side of things. Lame.
just going to carve out a small portion of my closet dedicate for work, meetings, social functions, etc. instead of the 50/50 I had intended on. I feel so let down. oof
on that note, the local donation centers are going to receive a nice size package of clothes from me this holiday season. as is i feel suffocated by all these Yoox boxes littering my room, and clothes Edited by gettoasty - 11/8/13 at 2:12pm
The Esemplare felted polyster parka I just got might just be one of the coolest jackets I've ever handled. Super beefy material, fantastic detailing, great oversized hood for Nazgul steeze, and great warmth.
Toasty... If you have 1 dark suit, a decent pair of shoes, and some boring shirts and ties, you are doing better than most people in the real world. If, god help you, you've been fucking around with tan pants and tasseled loafers (I kid, but not really), GET OUT NOW.
