post #31771 of 46042

 

My friend's a tailor at the Brooks Brothers shop at the mall here, and she wasn't there today. Meaning she's getting a surprise visit from me sometime tomorrow. Was tempted to get the second shirt for $259 but they only had the grey herringbone.

Bad cut, mediocre construction, mediocre fabric, $259? I hope you at least get in her pants.

 

edit: is that less mysogynistic?

 

I mean why else is he spending $260 on a crap shirt?

Lord no, and still no.

 

Edit: It was 2 for $260, not $260 per.

Brooks makes some decent shirts, but at $130/ea I'd spend the extra $15 for MTO. Far more fabric choices and an infinitely better fit.

just got the HMMM gray zips for my brother (new to dressing well) and myself. Very happy, they look rad and were $99 a piece.

Considering the painted ones, HAHAH. probably wont, though.

About a half size bigger in my experience.

+1. Yet surprisingly some H&M boots received nearly the same number of thumbs up. Everyone seems to eat up the idea of chain stores offering their cheap goods with a designer's name attached. Remember all the fawning on here when the Uniqlo +J collection first came out?

If you like the CDiem S21 boots, the junhashimoto S21 boots are extremely similar and readily available. Only difference I can see is a variation in the shape of the toe box. Looking from the overhead view the carpe appear to flare outward more on the sides than jun. But looking from the side view the jun toe seems to curve upward more.

The jun heavy waxed horse leather is so thick and strong that it feels like it'll last forever. I have not seen the H&M boots, but I'd be willing to bet they're intended to be thrown away when worn out, similar to a pair of sneakers.

This is dumb.  How often can you find good men's design that isn't really expensive? I was totally uninterested originally but now you can get really cool design at less than regular h&m prices.  It's fun.    I'm thinking I'll head back and get that giant oversized peacoat, wear it like a cape over a suit when I feel like being weird.

 

It's got nothing to do with name brand cache and everything to do with the once-in-a-rare-while opportunity to buy something that isn't chinos/flannel/blue checked shirts at prices that normal people pay for clothes, rather than the grossly inflated ones we normally pay here.
