AA / APC / for sure gets boring, but the posters who did and do it well were more like
Surplus / thrift / AA / APC / weird yoox finds
I know hi/lo is arguably tired but those are still the wardrobes I appreciate most
Some of this stems from the oft-given and undisputable wisdom of not settling for cheap versions of "what you really want." But just b/c something is expensive or at full retail doesn't mean you should want it, and I think that's confusing for some people--myself included occasionally. I dunno I'm not feeling particularly articulate right now
I agree, it seems the more expensive something is, the more you covet it. A few years ago I would spend 500$ on a jacket, and think it's almost too much.. Now I'm at a 1000$ minimum, it's bizarre.
