post #16666 of 16674

Proper Cloth recently put out a brown jacket that is pretty much exactly what I've been looking for.  Unfortunately, it sold out quickly and won't be re-stocked. 

 

Does anyone have recommendations for something similar?  Looking for a fall/winter weight wool with some texture (this one was a twill flannel), soft shoulder, patch pocket, and non-trendy lapel.   Any suggestions are welcome.  Thanks.

I don't really know much about fashion and I don't feel like I have a personal style... I'd like to find my style, but don't know where to start because there are so many brands out there. 
So, here are some random notes on what I realised about myself and what I want:

* I don't want to wear something that would really really stand out and attract attention to me
* On the other hand, I'm not into extreme minimalism either - I'd like something more minimalistic than not, but with a unique touch to it
* I like black, blue, dark green, grey etc. 
* I'm not into really slim clothes
* I'm not into formal clothing, like suits
* I don't want to look like a rapper
* ...or too rock and roll.
* Music-wise, I like electronica, folk, indie, odlschool goth
* I really like sweaters and knitwear.
* I want high-quality, long-lasting clothes. I don't want to buy new clothes often.
* Balmain has some styles that I really like, but they're mostly too expensive.
* Acne and A.P.C. can be okay
* Diesel, too, can be okay
* My price range is something like up to 150 EUR for a t-shirt, 350 EUR for shoes and sweaters and a bit less for trousers and jeans. I'd give more for a nice coat.
* It would, however, be nice if I could buy most of my clothes at prices 50% less than the ones I mentioned above, and then sometimes buy something more expensive that I really like.

So, what do you think, which styles and/or brands should I look into?

150 EUR is a ton to spend on a t-shirt when you don't seem "really know much about fashion" and you'd "like to find [your] style". Spend it on some cheap, fast fashion stuff to find out what you like. Then like TheObserver said, you can get a Rick shirt if that's your thing.

Buy your APC jeans and then get some basics and button downs at Uniqlo. Then look around Yoox, Marketplace here, GR+ILED and what not and see what you like for outerwear. Then study some more on footwear and do the same thing and see what you like for footwear. You seem to have a ton of money, so you shouldn't have any quality issues if you find the right high quality brands.

Wardrobe Staples is starting up soon and they might be able to provide you with your basics later on.

For this winter I'm wearing black Timberlands and RW 9010 Beckman. Timbs are full waterproof and won't make you slip and embarrass yourself. Went with the Beckman's, because they had somewhat of a more aggressive threading without bulking up the boot too much. Still don't know how I feel about workwear/heritage-y boots yet.

But here's my list that I had for boots but a lot of them didn't work for me simply because of weather and what I needed boots for: Alden, Red Wing, White's, Doc Martens Jeffrey, N.D.C, F+B, Buttero.

Which one fits better? Will you be layering a lot?
I want to say the left one fits better because you look more comfortable. The one on the right just looks like it's squeezing you.

Get the left and then shorten the sleeves from what I can tell.

Looks a little short to me, what's your budget?

i have a loose budget of $300. what is the most versatile, well-made pair of dress boots i can purchase in a walnut brown color?

prefer: ability to handle weather (dainite sole or similar) but i don't mind having a cobbler add this.

also want to be able to rock them with denim if need be.

That one was $650, which is probably the most I'd go.  Not sure why the model is wearing his cropped.  That came in long sizes though, which is another requirement for me (rules out LBM).

Anybody?

I've found one other place in Lane Crawford, but they're gonna charge me duties and whatever else, too.

The Toughest Great Question Ever:

 

Should I go with the MA+ in bison or cow?

 

Bison:

 

Or cow?

 

 

I already have the cow in a non-biker (it has this big wool collar thing, so it stays hidden from moths in a hanging plastic bag), but it's so amazing, having a biker might mean more options. Seriously, does anything get more beautiful than this??

 

But the bison is different, a bit more macho (which I can always use a bit more of, cough cough), and has cotton lining, which means less vulnerable to moths, which likely means more wear time.

 

Thoughts? Thanks!

S.E.H Kelly aren't making shoes, are they? 

What kind of shoes (type and brand) do you think would go well together with most things they make?

 

Edit: To the guy who asked the bison/cow question - The bison one just looks prettier to me, but I don't know much about fashion.
