They've gone up in price and aren't really worth it anymore. Used to be able to purchase them for relatively cheap, and a lot of times they would reach sales. Now they're pretty expensive and people buy them up, otherwise I would probably still buy a few. Same thing is slowly happening to Gitman, but at least Gitman has some cool prints coming out.

Master classter you need better boots.

(And the buttons on the tee are not good)

Also last week I went into Sydney's and they had some awesome blazer samples in size 48 (slim) for $150. You should buy one.

I also don´t like how the sns looks under the TOJ (specially buttoned that way) but, damn son!, you look badass. Not even the little pompadour sticking out of the beanie can take away the toughnes of the fit.

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.

Yeah, popularity on SF waned. I was never a BoO but there shirts are waaay short so they probably fit the bill. I think elisix(sp) just wants to dress like a regular casual guy but in his thirties and not look like a fashion poof or anything (i.e. not like many here, often including me). If I wanted to do that I'd mix something like this:

APC (jeans, boots, outerwear)
Kitsuné (Sweaters, sweatshirts, polos)
Boo (for shirts)
Some Nike hi vintage and say common projects for sneakers
Porter or something like that for bags

Maybe spice it up wit a few Junya and Geller pieces and call it a day.

Now if you ask me well I haven't bought a tee or dress shirt that wasn't Uniqlo in quite a while and pretty much always tuck unless I want to have the shirt show under a sweater or something relaxed like that.

To each his own - nothing fits me better than a BoO shirt straight off the rack. They are also easy to procure at sale. Not to mention their Martin Greenfield suits rock. Probably actually comprises most of my wardrobe.

Every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes, it's the heart.

Absolutely spot on in every way. Even the brands you mention are the ones which stick out for me.

I see a lot of the fits in here and while I admire them, many are too young looking and in many ways portray an 'emo' look.

I hate to say it, but they make some of the guys in their 20's and 30's look like much younger guys.

Anyway, back in the office today so..

APC
Industrie
Anderson's

what does this even mean (5)

post #84012 of 115926
it means we're supposed to dress mc when we hit thirty
post #84013 of 115926
Perhaps not as extreme as an emo, but certainly quite hipster. If you knew what younger guys dressed like in Melbourne in AU you might understand what I mean.

The whole TOJ leather jacket looking like your straight out of the 1970's look with super skinny jeans and boots etc. It's just a look which I associate with younger guys who appreciate an edgier look.

I don't think you know what emo or hipster means.
post #84015 of 115926
Perhaps. I've still got a lot to learn.
