Been wanting to get a pair. East Dane sells them and discounts them during sales FYI...which combined with Canadian exchange rate makes for a pretty good deal. 

 

I have a 1970s Bang and Olufsen turntable from an estate sale. It's awesome, but the cartridges are a proprietary design and replacements are $$$

This guy clearly has a strong idea of what he likes, but it would be a mistake to apply his ratings to yourself unless you you're pretty sure you like the same sort of sound. B&O is more or less a lifestyle/fashion brand like Beats (except their market is much higher end) - the stuff looks nice, but can be beat on sound for considerably less money.

I personally like Sennheisers and I'm really in love with V-Moda right now.  The Crossfade M-100s are very clear for a broad range (http://v-moda.com/crossfade-m-100/), but honestly, the LP2 work just as well, at least for me: http://v-moda.com/crossfade-lp2-matte-black-metal/  You can totally nerd them out as well, but I mean, do you want to? (fwiw, I got my son a pair, with like, initialized shields, but it's super nerdy.)

 

The trendiest and best looking headphoens that I've seen in a minute are Master and Dynamic: http://www.masterdynamic.com/  Every tragically hip boutique, from Colette to Fred Segal, are carrying their stuff.  I've only had a chance to try them out once, and the sound was good.  But they look pretty awesome, and the clean aesthetic will match your version of Margiela well. (0)

 

V-moda is the perfect fashion headphone brand imo, they look great, but are also built solidly and sound great. I disagree about the LP2s, I find that the m100 sounds significantly better. The master and dynamics sound pretty good, but at $400 there are better picks, like the oppo pm3

 

Someone mentioned the wirecutter earlier, seconding it as a solid place to get recommendations for electronics

You can't compare beats and B&O, unlike beats B&O actually makes good products, which aren't just $20 headphones with a couple weights in them.

I have that jacket, and I am sure that a lot of other guys here still have it, or a variation if it.  Never really embraced the GAT thing though.  I was a Common Projects man.

I feel ya on this one man, I love Siki stuff and own a number of items, but so hard to find anything new. His stuff for this spring looks really cool, but not even a hint of it online

I really dig the DEN IM by SIKI IM stuff. A little less crazy and at great price point. Tried on some of the stuff, and the cut was great.

There are decent Beats products, I don't hear a lot of people complaining about Beats breaking and a couple of their models beat similarly priced models on sound quality. B&O home stuff does sound good, but for the price it had better. Their headphones and earbuds are pretty average though, if you like the sound signature then they can be good.

i can't even grow scruff. i'll never be styleforum now
post #9384 of 13903

sorry @lesamourai, I only have scruff so my students stop mistaking me for an undergrad. As far as I know not actually SF approved.

 

also I realized that fit was based off yours from early 2014.

A little late comment on the "FASHUN" discussion - I strolled around DSM this weekend, and man, that store has a vibe. I've wandered around some expensive stores in NYC, but only at DSM (on two occasions now) have I been completely surrounded by people who seem waaay more into fashion than I am. I own four pairs of CCP footwear.

Led to some introspection/discussion with the girlfriend on the way I enjoy fashion. I think I only ever made it halfway out of the SuFu/styleforum denim bro culture (which I say affectionately). Despite some borderline absurd spending, I still dress in a manner that is inoffensive to pretty much everyone. I have an Incarnation leather jacket, but it, like the CCP overlock it's aping, is really pretty tame. The wildest thing I own is probably a White Mountaineering vest in a ridiculously awesome fair-isle jacquard.

I'm happy with the stuff I have, and my relationship to that stuff, but something definitely appeals to me about a broader, more look-focused, adventurous approach to the whole thing. If I ever have loads of disposable income, I'll probably buy a ton of Dries.

any suggestions for a small satchel/purse for carrying my iphone/cardholder/ipod around in? summer means no coats and i dont like having things in my pants pockets. 200$ish price range and leather would be ideal

I've been really happy with my Hender Scheme pig suede tote for a few summers now. I think I paid ~$85 for a new one direct from Japan then, but Gentry has them for $210 now.

 

Maybe check Rak city to see if you can get one direct from Japan still

 

edit: just noticed theirs is a single strap version, mine is a regular two strap tote, but seems like the same proportions.

Speaking of carrying things - who is it that did like, a leg holster thing, and has anyone done one this season?
