The order of posts on this page made this post unintentionally hilarious.

@hennree Assuming that you're just hanging around the city centre:

Food
Putien (Chinese. Several outlets in town)
Rumah Makan Minang (Indonesian)
Koh Nang Kam (Thai Muslim)
Nobu-ya (Japanese Izakaya. Reservation required for weekends. Ordering of alcohol is a must, else you'll be turned away)

Drinks with view
1-Altitude
Level 33
Smoke & Mirrors
Lepark (a slightly different kind of view)

Things to do
Enjoy sunset at Marina Barrage Rooftop
Rent a bicycle and cycle from the Marina Bay area to Changi Village (somewhere near the airport) on a coastal bike path. You don't have to do the entire route naturally.

If you have the budget, stay a night at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, just to have a swim in the infinity pool

-fake baller hightops
-red fake baller hightops
-yeezy boosts
-as a matter of fact anything kanye or yeezy related

This shit is a plague and adopted by every fashion lemming across the world.

I'm kind of astonished by the wholesale adoption of ripped / destroyed denim. Obviously the raw denim thing has been over for a while, but I feel like we're back in the aughts with skinny jeans from JE+Co and SLP replacing the bootcuts from 7FAM and True Religion.

Fits in with everything else that's popular right now though. Slutty tees, metal tees, flannels tied around the waist, grunge, "white trash" aesthetic, etc.

Walking in downtown San Francisco, every fashion conscious dude is in a double rider, MA-1 bomber, or top coat. Usually with a long tee and skinny jeans. Or he's full Hypebeast with hype sneakers and joggers. It's just that crowd + cubicle farmers in raw denim and OCBDs + old dudes in tailored clothing.

Hmm, I wonder if the raw denim thing will ever really be over over.  It's not exactly the new thing anymore, but it seems to still have quite a following, and I could see it holding on among certain people.  I know I'm old enough that I don't ever see myself putting on a pair of ripped jeans again.

Grailed will probably buy it and then Ian Connor or whoever will buy it from them.

I thought those only get traded via secret invite only ACR seller groups or something.

Very true...it's either SLP or reddit or suits, I very rarely see anything remotely interesting. For this reason I couldn't nominate SF as a fashionable city, for the most part it's just people following some pre determined aesthetic and not daring to stray from it

for the duration of time wonder if that was written by nic. ovadia and sons really is a bandwagon brand though, they have no identity. i've spoken to one of the factories that made their samples in the garment district, not gonna drop any names but this review seems pretty in line with what i've heard of them. it's good to see honest reviews like this. more businesses especially in fashion need to be held accountable for treating employees like shit. sadly seems quite commonplace
post #10825 of 13958
I have not liked the stuff from Ovadia for several seasons, but when they first launched, l liked what they were doing, which was modern, better fitting ivy/classic American stuff. Their Oxford cloth button downs and madras shirts were fantastic. I also have this linen over shirt/shirt jacket from one of their early seasons, which is very well done.

At some point, they decided to abandon their early stuff and try to become a high fashion brand. But the high fashion stuff is pretty awful.

Why is this supposed to be a special snowflake?

Ssense still stocks him. Ecole has bits and pieces

The Official Sales Alert thread should be locked to longtime members or members that pass certain criteria (low barrier to entry of course). Every time I'm on there, there's a billion 'Guests' who probably snatch items or noobs begging for TBS codes. I don't mind helping out fellow members but sometimes I feel like I'm giving free info to absolute strangers.
