I love the Montana! I wanted to get those a few years ago but they were impossible to find (and I wasn't yet prepared to buy from overseas) and my pair of the OG 2-strap guys was enough for my birk fix at the time

And the same is true for other things (shirts, pants, etc.). Unless you're looking at an entry-level line, like RL Polo, you might as well have stuff tailored. That's also something that I wish that I'd known 20 years ago.

Epaulet has a nice super 120s blackwatch, been meaning to make a jacket but their fit was never that good for me

Can't figure out why I want the MMM Galaxy / Milky Way print GATs

They are pretty ugly both online and in person yet I still want them. Probably once TBS has them for sub $250 or next Barneys drop if I'm lucky

Somebody talk me out of this. I also wear sneakers maybe once a month


Also in terms of space stuff this blazer has caught my eye:


The store goes 75% for sure with FSRs though at $500ish still dumb

And one more for shame, will try these on tomorrow and see, thankfully Bryan isn't at Leather Soul otherwise I'd be 75% sure I end up buying since he'd rationalize it


I should just buy some sweats and an Xbox One and stop looking at clothes

I look down at the sneakhead culture with such contempt, but I often catch myself lusting after some aj's, kobe's, or some other hyped nikes. I am no better... foo.gif

yeah, as I've said before I've been heavily into the whole sneakerhead thing and it's pretty a shitty scene tbh. Just built on hype, supply and demand and the pricing that comes with it. The people involved in the scene can be sketchy as well. Not to say there aren't any douchebags within SF / sufu / SZ, but they were def more common in the hypebeasting scene.

 

I've sold off pretty much all my sneaks now. Regret letting go of my Air Max 90 OG Infrareds :(

Probably gonna get some new retro runners this spring

Bad colorway of the Lanvin made it to sale at Bergdorf.  Tempted but might try to track down a better pair on sale if at all possible.

Tevas and Crocs. They're the footwear equivalents of friends you drink under a bridge with.

Shoes and blazer are both ugly, man. They look like pre-teen "halloween couture" via Zara.
