You should try it on before you buy though. I don't think the French company takes returns.

Forgot to mention I got an MMM striped longsleeve from last year with the droopy neck and pocket on that cheap that seems to be a good buy; color scheme is grey and black wide stripes so I look like I just escaped from the prison of steez.

Raf bolero is on a level that styleforum is not quite accustomed to; massive genitalia groundbreaking heart stealing steez. Paired with Raf Asics = more kills than Synthese in a gay bar.

Best: APC PS: I didn't expect to like them, but shit, I'm in love with these jeans. 6 months in, and they still fit great. Colby Backous Shirts: I'm guessing Colby disappeared? I bought a couple gingham and twill shirts from him earlier this year, and they're fantastic. For 30 bucks a pop, I wish I'd bought more. Vanishing Elephant Chukkas: I've never gotten more complements on a pair of shoes. And they're so goddamn comfortable. Worst: Epaulet Smith: They're constructed great, and I love everything about Epaulet, but the fit just doesn't agree with my body type. I probably should have sized down one. Frye Boots: Got them cheap, but they look like clown shoes and the leather is shit. Theory Shirts: Cheap fabric, Dry-clean only, fit like shit, expensive. That's a boring list.

They're actually like $65, so get 12.3 of them.


Super corny. My grandfather got the same one when he served during the second world war. When he passed away, I found it fitting to get the same design in the same place. We were pretty close. I also spend a lot of time on the water so it suits my personality.

BEST
  • LVC 1944 - My first pair of selvage raw denim. I chose these over the other LVC cuts because of the higher rise, lighter denim (10oz?), and straight leg. I also love the history behind these - WWII, arcuates painted on to save thread due to the wartime economy, etc. I wanted to spend this year developing my wardrobe, and found these a great starting point. These were originally my worst purchase; even after two hot soaks, they were still too big. They sat in my closet for a few months until around the end of summer break, when I decided to sell them. But, when I tried them on one more time, I found that they now fit. I've worn these almost every day since August, and can't wait to see how they turn out after the first wash.
  • Martin+Osa Harrington, in light grey glenplaid - I found this in the B&S; it was a good price and the measurements were spot on, so I jumped. Due to its versatility and the way the light blue check popped with anything blue (like my LVCs), it ended up being my go-to light jacket for most of spring and summer.
  • JCrew Cord Sport Coat, in medium grey - Another solid staple - casual and comfortable, but with a bit of structure. The color works well with my skin tone, and the texture works well with my denim. I bought it Black Friday, and after having the sides taken in, reach for it almost every other day.
  • CK Slim Suit , in 3-button navy pinstripe - My first suit. I purchased off the B&S for $60 in the spring and took it to a tailor. For the price, I've gotten a lot of mileage out of them; so far, I've worn it to a job interview (I got the position) and several presentations for classes I was taking.
WORST I was able to refund most of my bad decisions. However...
  • This JCrew Lightweight Secret Wash Shirt, in small - This really should be under best. Among my first JCrew shirts ever (from a flipper in B&S), it led me to realize that I could in fact wear plaid without looking like a 145lb lumberjack. Easily my favorite shirt, I wore it after every load of laundry throughout the year. Well, until I grew out of it. It's what I did with it that gets it filed under worst. I had it taken in a bit too much in the chest, without keeping in mind that I needed room to grow because I had planned to start working out. It now fits uncomfortably tight. I plan on keeping it to wear unbuttoned over T-shirts next summer, but am still looking for one in a medium.
  • Epaulet Exploded Check Flannel Shirt, in small - I bought this near the end of winter in B&S. I assumed it would fit based on the measurements on Epaulet's site, but it ended up being too small due of shrinkage. It also arrived with every other button coming off, but the seller compensated me for what it cost to get them all resewn on at my tailor. It's been sitting in my closet waiting for it to get cold enough for me to resell it. My mom saw me trying it on today though and liked it, so I may just give it to her if I can't get a good price for it. In the meantime, if anyone has one in a medium, please PM me.
I wasn't around last year, but...
  • H&M 3/4 length Peacoat, in charcoal herringbone - Still wear it regularly. Now that peacoats are everwhere, the length and herringbone texture help it stand out in the crowd.
