Nice color and fit, but have heard underwhelming things about AA-quality, and for that price I can get something similar at weekday

Was thinking 100-150$ (so a bit higher quality) but I only really know of OL in that range

 

edit: to not clutter up this thread any more with just one question, pm me instead if you have a suggestion smile.gif

at that price you can pick up virtually anything used/on sale.. acne, kimmel, our legacy, APC, etc etc. just dig through yoox.

also I picked up and returned that OL sweat. fabric was shit.

good to know, thanks

Part of the draw of OL fabrics is that they're shitty in a good way ie. slubby, fuzzy, pilled, washed out, pre-crushed nap, etc.

However it's a fine line and sometimes they just end up shitty. Their great sweats sweaters are an example of this ime

For $150 get something wool that looks casual enough to pass as a sweatshirt.  You'll thank me in like 2 years.

Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, want it to be "streetwear" enough to wear with sneakers, but clean and simple enough to layer with shirt and trench

Why is this? Noob question, I live in California so it never gets that cold. I figure wool is warmer than cotton (but also not as comfortable on the skin) and it will look better over time as you don't really wash it. Am I missing something?

I think he just meant it'll look better

here's a close up pic of the our legacy great sweat fabric in the 70% cotton / 30% silk version, it's used for the great sweats and great shorts. i wear the shorts almost everyday around the house, they are so comfortable. but look kinda scruffy

Well, I occasionally wear outfits that I would describe as "workwear lite". For example a military style jacket, v-neck tee, indigo jeans, and W+H service boots. But my overall profile will be far slimmer looking than most workwear guys-- e.g. I'll wear very slim Attachment jeans instead of roomy cut ones and the overall look is more fashion-y than rugged. I'd say a posters like jwied82 and nicelynice are probably the closest to my aesthetic. Not sure what you call the look, but I see it on many Japanese web sites. It's like an amalgamation of workwear, dark casualwear (goth ninja?), and rocker styles without a huge concern for being pure to a specific style.

Four Horseman has an OL reversible burgundy sweatshirt for like $90, but you'll have to spend $200 to get free shipping. I would tell you the quality, but I ran out of monies. cry.gif
