I understand how others could not give a flying shit, question the very necessity of a watch since they look to their phone for time - but I think it is a worthy passion / hobby.

Very good point, I conflated basic luxury watch buyers and horology enthusiasts much too quickly. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

He has some nice watches, but any one who owns a yacht master II and a pair of golden Beats headphones, has horrible taste.

I can now confirm that www.other-shop.com is sponsoring the WAYWT challenge with a prize of GBP250! That's some serious dough so get out there and do something and make a friend or stranger take a pic.

 

Given the recent conversation, maybe a winning entry would be assaulting someone with your baller watch?

Like a biker ring on your wrist?

So is Yoox so terrible because they just use the same model no matter what the size of the clothing is?

I mean, I know there are numerous reasons it is horrible, but in terms of the fit pics is that the main reason? Clothes are either many sizes too big/small for the model?

Is filming yourself walking past their shop too meta?

Nope, please do

there's nothing like that feeling when you salivate (metaphorically!) over a piece for the whole season and then, when you finally cop it, realize it sucks.

^What you get?

i got this lee roach jacket from the corner. was really looking forward to getting my futurism on. but the cut is horribad. like, the chest is really tight, but since the sleeves are also quite long and the waist is on the roomy side, sizing up probably wouldn't work.

I can't imagine a body it would actually fit. I think it was ghost-designed by Everlane

Anyone have suggestions for a pop-over anorak? Looking for something simple in a light nylon, waxed cotton or Ventile -- in short, something water resistant. Been digging the Battenwear Packable but can't find a sustainable color/material in my size.

I think the only brands I'm willing to spend money on anymore are Dries and TheSoloist. There are random pieces from others here and there, but those are the main ones. I'll probably feel totally different in a few months, but that's how it is right now anyway.
post #97934 of 101360
Props to anyone who can make Dries work in their personal wardrobe-- I dig most of it, but I feel weird wearing loud printy stuff.

Oh, and if any of you have the chance to make a disappointing purchase, I highly recommend it. Gives you a new appreciation for the sweet gear you already own.

That Lee Roach blazer really soured you, huh? Assuming that's what you're referring to. Sucks man. I hate that.

There's a ton of Dries that isn't loud at all. But if you want to go that route it's a good brand to do it with.
