Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2180

post #32686 of 38499
If you're a small, the ones I'm selling but haven't gotten around to posting yet. They're not exactly the first ones, but more like those than the second (which are more like track pants, if they're like the black ones I have).

Amathew, those blue Isaoras you posted are quite nice. they have a slightly dropped crotch and nice taper in them. The fabric is nice but took me some time to notice, that the label says do not wash. I was bit disappointed. They are sweatpants after all.

amathew - are your Fridays casual enough that you can get away with full-on sweatpants with elastic cuffs?

 

I'd go with the first pair, and not worry about the dry clean only instructions.

these look so nice, but unsure whether or not I'd be able to wear them well

I'm thinking about buying this belt: http://www.gilt.com/sale/men/jv-star-bags/product/1009566306-john-varvatos-star-usa-distressed-crackled-leather-belt

...thoughts? If it helps, I would probably wear it with these shoes (already purchased): http://www.amazon.com/BED-STU-Mens-Manhattan-Oxford/dp/B006LHBYQU.

Any suggestions about what else the belt would look nice with? Or, for that matter, how to build an outfit using the shoes? I like the shoes a fair bit but am struggling to really work them into my wardrobe.

Thanks!

(apologies if this is the wrong place to post a question like this)

I already owned jeans from those brands, except Dior. I would like to try something new. How about this http://www.jbrandjeans.com/Tyler_in_Mechanism/pd/cl/6364/np/225/p/2976.html


Anyone has experience with JBrand? Celebs wear them a lot...

I returned that pair in black few months ago. The leather is super shiny and feels like plastic.

 

Get a pair of  CP Achilles, you won't regret.

Koy- those are the silent palamedes pants right? I sold my pair, not because of the fit, which was nice, but the cotton fabric was pretty bad. Really thin and cheap.

they're probably my favorite of the "mainstream celeb-endorsed buy-it-at-a-nordstrom-near-you" denim brands. the denim feels nice and the washes are tasteful. still wouldn't choose j brand over the smaller brands we talk about here though.

I prefer Acne's denim to the JBrand stuff I've handled, but I got my pair for $40. Would definitely not pay retail for either when you could get get APCs or N&F at a similar or lower price.

$500 Nudie "Woad" dyed jeans

I love the photo, but is it worth it, and how would it play out in real life? I am not a jeans guy but trying to get into it

I'm sorry but those look awful and definitely aren't worth the price.
