ye, thanks for the heads-up
Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2181
I've recently gotten a little into the streetwear style and this coat caught my eye. I need a new spring/summer coat (starting to get tired of my current loose-fitting white one) and the fabric seems better than the usual polyester I see everywhere. I'll probably be wearing without the hood most of the time, during rainy or cold days.
Good buy or bad idea?
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.
(apologies if this is the wrong place to post a question like this)
Seems like a decent belt. For $40 why not right? I wouldn't limit myself to wearing it with one pair of shoes though.
I love my Acne denim and my J Brands too. I have two pairs of J Brand, both in the Tyler fit, and the cut is awesome. Drake, the grey ones you posted look good. I think you'd be happy with them.
I think the concept of woad dyed fabric is pretty interesting, and I'd like to handle it in person at some point. If you're considering something that unique, though, I wouldn't recommend going with Nudies. My experience has been that their stuff is ok at best, crummy at worst, and overpriced at retail. If you hunt around, I'm sure you can find something from an actual craft denim company at a comparable price point or below.
These woad dyed jeans from Tender Co are much more in keeping with the spirit of workwear, if that's your thing: http://www.unionmadegoods.com/tender_Slim_Jean_in_Blue_Woad_Denim_9571.html
shop around and fine them around $115. best entry level cans around by far.
399 for beats by Dr. Dre?!
For 400 (same price as the Beats) you can get real audiophile headphones with fantastic sound from AKG, Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, etc. but at that price point and quality, you need a bunch of other gear to get the most of them. Most cans in that range need a separate amp to even get loud enough and then you can invest further in cables and so on.
If you're gonna use them with an iPod, I'd just get something small and portable like Sennheiser px100 ii for really cheap or Sennheiser HD25's or something of that sort if you want closed back "fun" sound (bass and treble heavy). Those Audio-Technica's might fit in this niche too. I'm very satisfied with my HD25's and they work great for the iPod, movies or gaming and doesn't require an amp.

There's a B&S forum where you can get great cans cheap.
