So I tend to just lounge around the house most of the time in sweatpants or ogs, birkenstock sandals, tshirt & cardigan, but as soon as I have to go out I tend to want to compensate and do a polar opposite fit, so even if Im just going out for whatevs to a store or something I'm in some type of blazer fit, and the rare occasion now when I have a work meeting or something work related I'm in a suit by default, not necessarily a full cm suit+tie fit everytime but at the least I do a casual suit fit

I can get away with Dark wash jeans, so I've been wearing a pair lately. Otherwise, I try buying things that I can wear at the office and still wear out of the house when I go out on the weekends.

I like some SWD stuff, but I don't see the point of throwing a lot of money at something I can wear for only 2 days a week, if even...

Man, I'm in a similar situation. I work online from home and I only go out on the weekend. I'm currently rebuilding my wardrobe and there are so many pieces that I want but I'm on the fence about it because I know I'd only wear them no more than a few times a year. Maybe I should just be like Hirsh and gain satisfaction by just owning things and wearing them at home.

Or just make up stuff about buying/ordering things...

 

I think part of the 'joy' of owning nice slash nicely fitted clothes is being able to wear them. Of course there are a few things where you can't do this all the time (like tuxes), but I think the majority of one's wardrobe should be stuff that could be worn pretty often.

 

I'm trying to break my habit of being more 'consumerist' oriented and being more 'utilitarian' oriented. Nothing wrong with having nice stuff provided you use it. For instance, I rarely wear suits. I have 4 of them. I almost feel bad about it because I could go an entire year without wearing one of them.

I'm also not even close to being wealthy, so I try to pick carefully and buy things that I can 'get my moneys worth' with by actually using them.

Currently I set my "consumerist purchase" budget at 10% of my income. And that's crazy enough for many people.

Get outside! It's a good excuse for copping outerwear.

You do feel better about yourself if you wear clothes you really like:)

For people aware of the bay area demographic and geography... Balenciaga is opening a boutique in Valley Fair (right in the heart of Silicon Valley). Odd choice IMO...

Also, Louboutin is opening in SF soon, apparently they hired staff already. SLP is expanding to women's - I went in today to ask about the black/indigo court high's and encountered an empty store with 5 SA's loitering by the door making fun of people walking by. One of the women had a pretty solid fit on, the rest looked garish at best. They did not seem to think my fit indicated that I could afford SLP. I left my name down for them to let me know when they restock, but apparently they sold out within a week of both the black/red and black/indigo the first time around.

DH was mostly Eastern Europeans and fobs.

Barney's has the coated SLP black 15.5 cm's in a few sizes left. They also have the painted 15.5 cm's from last season. Red Hawaiian print shirt is fun, but not $900 fun. The 40 black 5-zip from last season is still there. The new pebbled 5-zips are fucking awful. Seriously AWFUL. Balmain bikers going up to almost $1500 for the waxed versions pre-tax. Cheapest around $1250 IIRC. Dries bombers were sold out. They still had some leftovers from last season as well.

Looking at some $10 fedoras on eBay, hard to tell difference with a $280 Borsalino. :o

 

Is quality difference apparent in person?

Yes there is absolutely a difference. My wife has a lot of hats. And there's a world of difference between a cheap hat and a well-made hat. It's not unlike the difference between something, say, by Margiela, and the quality of the H&M/Margiela collaboration. You might also want to try some English makers like Lock.

From what I hear, Valley Fair has its fair share of rich people poking around and it's not uncommon to run into a celebrity there.They've opened up a couple of high end boutiques recently.

Whoops I forgot to mention EG. They had the floral shirt that @penanceroyaltea has shown us. They also had some chambray or denim type stuff. Some flower print vests. I didn't see any jackets, but that doesn't mean they aren't there shog[1].gif It was a relatively small rack - even smaller than the Geller and Balmain racks. I didn't get a chance to check Bloomingdale's, but they usually carry some stock as well.

Didn't bother going to The Archive or Mac again as there was insane traffic everywhere.

I don't think Balenciaga is the same as Gucci or Channel as far as brand recognition. Valley Fair is also inundated with high school kids. Sillcon Valley has the money, but everybody dresses pretty shitty. I'm not just talking about start up or tech types. Even the finance people and VC folks generally dress like shit. Dudes worth 8 figures will walk around with company polos and flip flops on weekends. I'm sure we've always had a sizeable Eurotrash contingent, but I'm noticing them more lately.

I see some 49ers at Santana Row from time to time, but that place is awful at night. Many divorced older men, gold diggers and Persian kids with Ferraris.
