if you haven't received these yet, please post how they fit when you do. i'm still having a problem finding slim fitting dress shirts in anything other than solids and stripes.

I've had them before. They're all right, i.e., "better than boxy" but the 15x34 is still a bit big on me at 5'9" and 145 lbs. I should probably be wearing a 33 sleeve, but I have to keep my tattoos well-covered, so that may have something to do with it ... I suspect the 15x33 would fit me much better. They're definitely the most cost-effective options for me, though. EDIT: I will check that band out.

Hopefully your new workout doesn't make all this stuff not fit

they don't sound much anything like d-generation but they were jesse malin's first band. he was like 12 or 13 or something like that at the time. it sounds exactly like the music you'd expect a 13 year old in new york city to be playing in 1981.

Sure, no problem. I hope it's not sheer, I'm not in the best of shape right now LOL My worry is that none of this stuff is going to fit me because I ordered International Size Large but I'm trying to lose weight for a trip to Europe at the end of the summer, so hopefully I'll lose enough in the next month or two to fit into them

Weirdly, his solo stuff doesn't sound anything like D Generation either.

It's sort of the same look I've always had, with a few additions ... my main goals are expanding the palette, adding a few things like seersucker and more cords, and getting/tailoring things to actually fit.

I suspect my new workout regimen won't swell me out of my wardrobe, as I'm not really aiming for significant hypertrophy at this point.

Got these yesterday, on sale for $60 CAD. Not familiar with the brand (Jack and Jones Denim), but I've been looking for a more chunky sneaker than Chucks/Purcells, and these fit the bill; they look like Stan Smiths.



A little too bright right now, gotta wear them in a bit

I believe it's Danish brand targeted for teens and young adults, mostly streetwear. They usually sell with with another brand, Selected, from the same main company. We have those shops in every mall in Finland (and probably in Scandinavia too).

Umbro by Kim Jones. Simple designs goes never out of fashion.

^^ Nice Buddy.

I bought a bunch of jeans at BlueBee, looking for something to burn my store credit on. Discussed in detail elsewhere...April 77 Sinners are unique and well-cut, but not exactly what I'm after; KMWs are excellent quality but bizarrely oversized below the knee; Acne Mics fit me almost perfectly, and will probably be the ones I keep. Ordered another pair to see if I want to size down or not. May try some Jean Shops too...

I was actually at Blue Bee yesterday and Friday. They had some pretty cool stuff. I liked some of the Alexander McQueen stuff, they had some nice Steven Alan shirts, and I was fond of the Acne jackets as well although they were a bit pricey. It was sorta funny though, when I was there friday the girl I was with was browsing in the female side, but on Saturday we both walked into the male one just to check things out briefly and it sounded like someone was getting it on in the changing room. She was like WTF so we left haha
