post #7786 of 46309
I did get the navy flannel in the walt model. It just sold out quickly which is why you don't see it. I haven't gotten them in yet but I'll report back.

Contemplating the light grey. I need a pair of really understated flannels to go with the 4 pairs of mabitex checks and plaids and herringbones I got during the recent bonanza.

Agreed about needing money to support my habit lol the SF minimum income of $250,000 would be welcome

I think with certain brands, synergy is crucial. With RO or Julius for example, their pieces become incongruous worn with anything else. Sometimes the only way to pull off a certain aesthetic is to pile on more pieces of that same designer. This reminds me of when socal was a regular and posted in waywt frequently. He got a lot of shit for wearing one designer (be it Rick, Ann, or Raf) head to toe and I remember a lot of people called him out on it. While it does lack the creativity you would see if you were to mix it up, I always thought that his fits were executed quite well.

The Walt or the Rudy? Because in imitation of others I just grabbed these (Walt) Windowpane is a nice touch and understated enough to wear with shirts / knits / ties with patterns, without looking too busy I'm thinking.

+J wool pants are great value and fit. I bought two pairs, will post pics soon.
post #7793 of 46309
Wish I had brought more. I have one pair from each season so far.

I don't understand why they're not restocking the +J stuff. I was told that was it -- the next shipment will be new stuff only.

i get the impression you are a "fashion conservative." you only like the "old stuff" and consistently talk about how bad the "new stuff" is. you also seem to do this without considering the current state of the fashion world which is trending towards less avante-gard and lower prices as a whole i think.
I think the bigger names aren't that great ATM. Schneider / Ervell is quite good, Jil is still quite good IMO. Rick is another that is good, TB too. MMM is good, but I don't think it's going to last. I just like giving Raf a hard time man, as much as I love him. Massive difference between old and new RAF. Also, aren't things wayyy more expensive now? Raf sneaks are a good example.

augusta is no better than diesel black gold ripping off ro, just at a higher price point. they are straight lifts off of ccp
post #7800 of 46309
This is a rip off of CCP.
