Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2181

post #32701 of 39267

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?

...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)

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 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 think they look sick, yeah, but I also wouldn't pay $500 for them.

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.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

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

Looking for some cans ( I know not fashion/ clothing per se). Debating on these two. Ive only tried the beats pro and I liked the comfort and sound quality. Any thoughts?

1. Bose QC3

or

2. Beats Pro

Damn kgfan I hope you're just trolling, because those are both terrible. You could spend about 1/3 the money and get a much better set unless you're really dying to brand rep.

audio-technica ath-m50

http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/0edf909675b1be4d/index.html

 

shop around and fine them around $115.  best entry level cans around by far.

post #32710 of 39267
lol. clueless on cans. I'll take a look at those audio-technica thanks.

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.

 

If you want to do some research, check out http://www.head-fi.org/

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

I've got Sennheiser HD448s, and I've been really happy with them. In the $100-150 range.

Good catch with the Tender jeans, those do look better and almost the same price. Unfortunately I know Grim Trim fits me perfectly but don't know about the fit of the Tenders.

What's everyone's thoughts on those Kent Want sneakers

 

http://www.kentwang.com/shoes/sneaker-white.html

 

I have a good pair of leather sneakers (MMM gats) and a pair of dirty gats (non mmm) that are close to RIP. I just need something in between for summer.

kg, for some headphones that aren't pure branding but actually sound really good, and also happen to be imo one of the best looking headphones ever(as in that they look seriously cool), I'd recommend these:

or preorder the new version of them that look a bit sleeker/sportier, they are cool as well
