Need some cheap shoes/boots to wear with my DR or trousers, since all I have are sneakers. I was thinking of something casual with a rounded toebox, like CP Derby or the RW Postals. Help?

Barneys, it was 60% off. I'm done with navy blazer.

Mr porter is on sales for 50% off or just wait til it drops to 70%.

ok guys before you go spend $900 on this blazer with tacky gold buttons, instead get a thick as thieves jacket made to fit your body exactly for a third of the price. email jason with your stats and will get everything set up for you.

Instead of paying Jason 1/3 of $900, instead spray paint the gold buttons black for $2.95. Ask Iroh to set it up for you.

Yeah, the average item price tag and spending have definitely bloated a lot, even since I joined. A few years back people were debating buying $140 APCs for weeks. Now they're picking up discounted $240 margielas and sns hernings faster than you can scream "styleforum uniform'd!".
The "new" Mr. Moo was freaking me the fuck out too, until he pulled out the old "you cretin, you have insulted my honor and I demand satisfaction!" routine when some dude criticized his waywt a couple of days ago, and I realized things haven't really changed that much after all.

I think when I got here, the W+H hoodie, BoO oxford, APC NS, and alden indy was the uniform of choice. I distinctly remember Fuuma posting a pair of plain white Margiela trainers, and people freaking out about "WTF 400$$ FOR A SENAKER???!???1." Now every other person in WAYWT has CP's as their baseline, and Moo is copping Rick Dunks.

Get Smart is a legit dude, but I've seen some really bad TaT fits.

Since when did iroh the college kid everyone made fun of become a sartorial consultant?

What peeps are forgetting is the cost of goods in 06 was immensely cheaper. Top tier jil knits topped out at 700 not 2000, there has been an drastic increase in the overall price level for the stuff we like in the past five years even cps and boo. Weren't rick leathers like 1200 or some shit when he first came out?

Accept no substitutes my good man.

I love getting involved in navel-gazing discussion about the ghosts of styleforum past. (2)

I really do enjoy that the forum in general has broadened its scope, and fewer people demand justification of value for big $$ purchases/wardrobes, but I really liked the days when dressing well and interestingly on a budget / getting value for money was more of a focus. I know this is hypocritical as fuck, but I still get grossed out by blatant conspicuous consumption (altho I admit, I like to watch...sometimes).
