I think that it's still around in some places.

Styleforum SW&D is going through a wierd phase right now. People are calling anything that isn't really slouchy, which is nearly exclusively a NYC hipster thing - I don't see in anywhere else, and definitely not in most of Europe, cropped. It's like goth ninja passed through and left this single idea, that all tops should be long enough to cover your balls,

That phase, the climate that's going around where yeah, an AnnD piece or whatever basically ends up covering most/all of the top block on a pair of denim. I guess that's why there's drop crotch pants and so forth. Not my steez though. Not going to miss it when it's passé either. I thought it would be more of a flash in the pan, to be honest, but whatever. It'll croak soon enough (let's hope).

The Barena with the toggle I had in mind wasn't the cable version. That looks pretty standard. Can't get around the cable knit or I probably would have bought it close to retail. This one almost looks like it could be a base layer it was that thin. At least from what the picture showed. Anyway, pretty short. Maybe I'm wrong but it seems to come from the school of thought that guys should show off their, um assets as much as girls/women. Pair said knit with some high rise trousers that show a flattering fit through the seat and you're set. European, Italian? I don't know. Also suggests late thirties to middle aged man chasing skirts. Not where I'm at in my wardrobe just yet. Aside from a few cardigans, a stark from a few years ago being one, there's this sweet spot where my knits end up, ~27" label to hem or in that neighborhood. Usually level with the pockets of a pair of jeans. Color me conventional (or sensible) I just figure if you're going to put down a fist of bills on a knit or jacket that you'd likely want to still wear it down the road.

Try indigo and cotton. They had a few on the cheap last I checked.

Just curious if anyone knows if Maas & Stacks stops at 50% or if they have further drops in the coming weeks.

well since I'm sale hunting tonight.. Any place that still has the EG denim jacket?
post #25762 of 36468
Coldsnap, Gitman fit is not so bad. Not super slim, but looks fine untucked, and I am skinny as hell. They also do a few funky prints every season, which no one else in the price range does. Sizing in the plain oxfords is usually consistent, but try to get measurements before buying the prints.

Gotcha. Hoping medium was a good choice. I'm 5'7 181lbs 39"-40' chest. Shirts with 21" chests fit me great, anything less pulls a bit in the pecs

thought I'd let people know, MAC in San Francisco started their warehouse sale. Everything that didn't sell from last year is $45 dollars (pretty good rack) - I picked up two White Mounteneering shirts, still some sizes left, some WWM vests, Nice Collective, and lots of Japanese stuff. Some pieces (mostly pants) by Dries Van Noten. No shoes.

Their regular items are also on sale, up to 70% off. Adam Kimmel is 70%, Junya stuff is 60-70% off (lots of great outerwear, lots of knits, all sizes left). CDG is 50% - 70% off.

They don't have a webshop. They are a really great shop in San Francisco. This sale is in their Haight location.

Thanks man you are right, yet another fail by Unionmade
