^^no. That kind of money for a tee is retarded.

yea that's what I was thinking too, just needed to hear it from someone else (preferably sane)

Did we see it when we passed by there a few months ago? I sure don't remember it.

It's definitely something I see you wearing (not now but when it goes back to being warm again) but I'd falcon punch you for paying retail on it.

I've heard nothing but great things about mr. freedom fabrics, construction, and philosophy. If it offers something in terms of fit, fabrics, design, and general aesthetic you really don't think you can find elsewhere i'd say just go for it. Sure, it's a tshirt, but i don't understand why a rather plain button up should be justified at $200-300 while $50-100 for a tshirt of similar quality and design is frowned upon. I think a lot of it is just the fuddy duddiness of some members on this forum as tshirts are automatically thought of as lazy wear. I'm sure you can utlize the tshirt in a way that it'd look great so i don't really see a problem with paying that for a tshirt. I wear a fair amount of tshirts in relaxed/casual outfits, and in outfits i actually care about. Also, it's nice to feel good in even your most simple/casual outfits in my opinion.

FTFY.

And I don't see GS getting that much use out of tees, in general.

yea it'd defo be a once in a while wear, not a regular staple

when it comes to Ts I dont need philosophy/virginpubethread/handthisandthat details behind it. just a good fit (AA fits great imo) and cool image

but something about that shirt appeals to me in a way that I consider doing something as dumb as dropping almost $100 for it...tho I won't

Whacked has it right. I don't really pay retail for anything, but i have a good amount of tshirts that at retail were $50-125 It's more about whether the tshirt offers something you can't get for cheaper. Fit, fabric, details, graphic, aesthetic, other crap. If it does, it may be worth it. It's why some people feel BoO, jil, raf, agnes b, etc... shirts to pay between $100-300 on them (2nd hand to retail), while some feel $30- 75 jcrew is good enough for them. Same goes for getting AA tees, or springing for s2a, mister freedom, vibskov, raf by raf (or some raf), cdg, or others. I'm not trying to justify everyone buying expensive tshirts/dress shirts/laceups/sneakers/outerwear, but for some specific pieces are worth it. Depends on the person though.

Yup, case closed.

I know some will hate the toe, but for me its a matter of money. Its basically just these and nothing else for a very long time....

The cdiems are nice. The shade of brown (are those the brown ones?) they have is really nice from what i've seen when i was at barneys. Having owned the black pair for a little bit, the shape, and details are really nice. You will definitely need to get either a thin rubber sole, or at least one on the heel with a toe tap or something. The original leather sole is pretty soft and slippery. Have you tried them on before? The bulbous toe isn't for everything or all types of fits. However, given the few fits i've seen from you, it seems they would work. I figured the black reverse leather 6 holes would be best for the style you seem to want to go for.

^ Well I couldn't dream of touching them at retail, but a guy at SZ is giving me a very good price for that specific pair, and I've actually been looking for brown boots for some time. It is the reverse leather in brown. I knom I could get Buttero brand new for the same price I'm paying for these used so i'm a little apprehensive though I am the first to admit I love the cache of Carpe Diem. it's basically either those or a stack of other purchases I've been planning...S2A jewelry, Margiela sneakers, W&H tees.... Do you think i'll look like a clown with those in a 46 though?
