post #83986 of 115861


shout out to Dave, the styleforumite who my ex-girlfriend dated immediatly after i broke up with her in a pathetic attempt to hurt my feelings and funnily enough get me back, at the same time. I guess buying her a BMW for her birthday didn't work?

All black outfits are arduous to choose and prepare because you have to either entirely match the black (i.e. have a jacket and pants that were made with the same wool AKA a suit) or contrast the fabrics and texture. A leather is usually not that hard to contrast so it works very well even if the shade is different, which is why it is often used. The problem is when two fabrics and textures are similar but the shades are close but not the same, it looks off.

fuuma: do you have any luck matching navy wool/tech pants with black jackets (either wool or leather)? I have some dark navy nylon pants and am trying to integrate them....

You must have this mixed up with the What About You Wequiwes Thewapy thread, in which licensed psychiatrists ["thaikaitwiththth"] counsel StyleForumites about relationship woes while themselves receiving counselling for their speech impediments.

Strange how nobody discusses or buys BoO anymore on this forum. Yet when someone wears a shirt that looks odd untucked, BoO suddenly becomes the "go to" brand!

I had a friend that bought a BMW a couple years ago. And my ex-girlfriend's dad bought one probably 10 or so years ago. My aunt just got one last month, too.

I went true to size with the jacket and tried another one that was also true to size so PW seems to be quite consistent with sizing.

I should really read the whole post before posting. I didn't realize you mentioned where you got the jacket from biggrin.gif

and yes maybe it was unfair for me to compare yang li to peir wu as minimalists. just too tempting not to compare two new and young asian designers (both based in london? not 100% sure) who worked under raf.

And I'm happy to see a number of those fits include a piece from Suspension Point smile.gif.

Probably can't tell from the picture but the jeans from my fit are Siki Im layer dye denim from Suspension Point. I highly recommend the store to everyone fing02[1].gif

Back around 2009 or so Band of Outsiders was one of the hot brands on here-- e.g. many members posting Boo shirts to Recent Purchases, excitement about GILT sales offering Boo, noobs inquiring about the brand. Today the interest has dropped dramatically. Have you not noticed this? I just did some quick research and found this....

Activity in the official "Band of Outsiders" thread:
2009 = 26 pages
2012 = 4 pages

Number of posts mentioning a brand in the last 6 months:
Band of Outsiders + Boo = 242
Geller + RG = 1113

Geller is not even a popular brand on here, yet even it receive far more activity on this forum than Boo. Boo is dying (or is it dead)? There's no market anymore for overpriced shirts with buttons that fall off simply because they're slim fitting and look good untucked. Anyway, I was merely commenting how it's interesting that a brand who's popularity has waned continues to hold on to the "untucked button shirt = Boo" crown in so many people's minds.
