hah where the hell are you ? low 50s here at night at the moment, it's insane. can't even wear gloves or furs, no fun


merino thermals ? idk, i should get some but haven't looked into it. stuff from Icebreaker should be alright, I like Finisterre but no experience about their long johns (other labels to checkout: Woolpower, Devold, Brynje)

thought you were wearing some sort of merino base layer? uniqlo thermals are colder than wearing anything, i will have to break out some inverallan, cdw and shearling bombers soon

skintight heattech is pretty effective

cashmere crewnecks are my go to to keep warm. 

 

I like EG but only to a point. The shapes and cuts are all cool. But the overall design vibe is like a 1950s Field & Stream on steroids. Too retro for me personally. Also too rumple-y and scratchy. I'm a sucker for sheen, luxury and drape.

oh right thought you were asking about leggings for some reason :/ most of my base layers are from Rapha because they often ended up being cheaper to order and have been solid so far. but Icebreaker is just a good in my experience (same for the other labels I mentioned). since the stuff is usually 100% merino wool, toastiness factor should be about the same across the board (at same thickness) and it mostly comes down to personal preferences (details, length, fit) so it's difficult to recommend one over the other

Thank you - I'll check it out
This sounds pretty fail safe

Im in Heidelberg right now, then heading to Berlin for NYE. Im here visiting my girlfriends family, so its a bit different than a normal Europe trip.

What about you?
post #6157 of 13901
Nice. Wondered if you were planning on coming to England.

We were just planning on a quick trip to Brussels (Eurostar journey is about 2hrs from London) but theres a rail strike in Belgium on the 6th, 7th & 8th, so we're going to head to Lille for a couple of days afterwards and get the Eurostar back from there.nod[1].gif

Food yes, clothing not much. Off the top of my head there's Classroom which carries typical sf basic brands and Sid Mashburn that does #menswear.
post #6159 of 13901

The Classroom's buys have been getting better lately imho. Cool to finally have a store carrying CPs locally again.

But yeah, it's all about the food here. Some random recs: Solario for Neapolitan pizza, Kaung Kaung San for Burmese, Pho Saigon for pho/bo bun and BCN Taste if you feel like balling out on tapas

 

Also there's a Wtewael exhibit at the MFA that looks interesting

Look at how Fwrd styles EG: http://www.fwrd.com/mens-brand-engineered-garments/a3047d/ - yes it can look 50's Field & stream, but it needn't wink.gif

Good point. I think I just don't like the hunting-fishing-woodchopper stuff. Or at least I like it when it looks more modern like that Frwrd stuff. I was just ranting.

The outfit you described sounds like straight-up Pharrell. The Voice is really giving this stuff a platform...

Whats everyone's opinion on the brand: A Kind of Guise?

I have a sweater from them that I really like, but overall, I wish the line was more interesting. Sometimes they do really cool fabrications, but a lot of the line feels striped down and minimalistic. Sort of like Our Legacy in that sense.

That said, I like some of OL stuff too. It's just that, both lines are so basic that it's hard to feel swept away.

Example: Lemaire is really minimalistic, but the cuts are so interesting that you really get inspired. Hard to feel that way about AKoG or Our Legacy, even if I buy a piece from them every once in a while.
