post #5596 of 14525
There used to be another thread where this group of people congregated to talk about clothes but i forget. But, cali guys, what is info on fred segal sale. I heard there is nice stuff (ymc, ervell, ndg, w&h, cloak, enodovera, obedient sons, opening ceremony. You guys go yet? Is there a thread on it i'm missing that you guys talked about it in secret? Few price/stock questions if you guys went on items if you remember: -Opening Ceremony canvas black laceups in 44? -YMC cropped trousers? -Common Project dress shoes (lace or no lace) in 43s? - What ndg, obedient sons and ervell is stocked?

Gotta agree with you there. When I tried on the jacket I was like wtf walmart brand zipper...

But the wool is allright (nothing spectacular) and the price point is a lot less than other contemporary designer brands so in my opinion it seems to be priced accordingly (1200 for a coat versus 2000 for Jil Sander)

Polo chambray western from the bay

Here is 6 month's worth, all my streetwear purchases since April. Went on a bit of a Belstaff Trialmaster binge:

Early 50's:




60's:




Early 70's:




They look redundant but actually they all fit very differently and go with different things. I picked them up on the cheap too.



Rag & Bone anorak:






Cucinelli heavy cotton fisherman's sweater:




Zanone coarse cotton sweater, feels like linen:





RRL chambray shirts:










The Flat Head 3005, I'm super stoked on these:




Replacement pair of Earnest Sewn Fulton 50:




Earnest Sewn Hutch in 'Dark Worn'. Great wash, it reminds me of the old PDC 1 year wash, but executed better:





The Alden shell cordovan Indy boots I ordered came in:





The Flat Head wallet and Skull rein, I replaced the leather cord with a braided bolo cord:






Mosley Tribes Enforcer in Silver/Midnight and Gold/Amber:






Ralph Lauren Collection belt:





And I'm awaiting what should be the ultimate belt from Unlucky, handstitched double-thick horsehide:

But, can you find something with such a great cut?

If you let the zipper influence your purchase you are too easily swayed.

Funny because I'm actually thinking of getting ANOTHER overdye oxford.....the overdye seems to fit slightly different from the regular A-body oxford. Maybe it's my imagination but the body seems to fit a bit slimmer, the length appears a tad shorter, the sleeves are def a tad shorter (the normal OCBDs are always about 1" longer than I like), and the neck is actually perfect when buttoned up all the way.

The buttons are def not MoP but that's not a dealbreaker for me

Andrew, wow that's some haul

Amazing pickups on the Belstaffs....!!

I also like that Cucinelli sweater a lot, and the Flatheads are dope (cool back pocket pattern)

Is there an easy way to tell the difference between the 2? I have one my dad used to wear racing in the early-mid 70s when i was a lad but I don't know if it's actually from the 60s or early 70s and he doesn't remember either. I freakin' LOVE that jacket too. i hadn't considered adding another but....

If this is the case I may need an overdye...
sleeves are about 1" long for me too, and I could use a slightly shorter hem

I agree, quality might be so-so still the cut/shape is amazing.
post #5610 of 14525
at higher price points, you should be getting higher quality materials (zippers, buttons etc) since it doesnt cost any money to make a good cut....but I hear ya, I'd be more inclined to pay $$ for a good cut with lesser materials than an inferior cut with top notch materials
