They also have a grey pair in a pretty full size run. Worth a look, I think.

i've had these in a different colorway
bought them at asos 2 years ago, for about the same price
thry fit tts, the quality is alright but the laces get untied constantly
country of origin is not indicated

camper is a spanish shoe company
the together-line is designed by different designers
e.g. bernhard wilhelm, don't know if it still exists

Picked up this black tweed jacket for £5 from some vintage shop while at Leeds festival, what do you guys think? I'm thinking it was made for someone taller than me and would look better 2" shorter or so, has anyone had a jacket shortened before?

just threw it on over what I was wearing today


Fabric close up Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Not interested in wearing it in an MC way (shirt and tie). I may wear it with an OCBD at some point but thats as formal as I get when I'm not at work.

it fits really nice, but I think shortening it an inch would make it even better, without making the position of the pocket look odd
if you were to shorten it 2 inches, it may look weird
for only 5 £, great pickup icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Couldn't resist some Leder shirts while stopping by South Willard

^Can't believe this is a 100% linen shirt.

Love that blue wool shirt, really wanted to buy it myself but I don't think Leder would work on my body type very well.

Thanks for not buying the ones I wanted.

PS. It's 102 degrees.

Damn you all for living in seasonal countries. It's perpetual summer here.

Hrm I think you'd be surprised. I imagined that Frank's stuff would fit boxier, but it fits more slim cut than expected. I'm generally a 40-42 in tops and 32" in waist. Could get a medium on, but large was the more perfect fit. Looking at your profile I think medium would fit you better than you think ;p

Haha which ones did you want? I was looking at the linen/gray wool one too and some of the reddish ones too. The blue/white strip one was nice too. Fabrics are insane over all. Rougher hewn than Schneider fabrics generally but in a way I really, really like.

You are not really buying an iPhone, rather you are buying several years of high priced wireless service which just happens to include a heavily subsidized phone.

If customers had to pay the full price upfront few would buy one. The wireless carriers remind me of those low end furniture stores who attempt to sell furniture and a new TV on a payment plan. Thus it should come as little surprise that even the poor buy iPhones.

^ I'm in the market for a new phone but can't renew my contract since I'm probably relocating soon-ish.  It puts things in a whole different perspective when you realize that the phone really costs $650-$800.
