I'm afraid I'll have to veto this purchase, the who. Save your monies. Splurge on something more fundamentally whelming.

It's a lot of money to drop on a pair of shoes that's not 100% perfect in my eyes

Any chance someone in the city has used Andreas Gorges for custom shirting (or suiting)? Searching through the CM side yields results from 5+ years ago.

Order the EG Beaulieu on the 82 I think Skoaktie can get it for you for way less than any American store. EG Burnishing is better than G&G anyways

G&G burnishing is pretty solid, one could say the same about distressing on SW&D shoes

G&G is a pretty smooth square, not bad at all and pretty sleek

probably first bag, and no to the boots.  I can see the appeal of wanting to add maybe some shine to your palette though, to balance things out, so keeping that in mind maybe the second bag is better?

I bought and subsequently sold a WM shirt a while back. Fit was very short and boxy, with high armholes and super narrow shoulders. Kinda awkward all around.

I am also considering the siamese bag (strapped is my preference tbh. it's so much more useful to free up a hand and to carry it on your shoulder when walking/traveling long distances!), but my heart keeps telling me to get a guidi gb2a. yes, i know that's totally nonsensical since the gb2a only has a handle, but i just love its shape. decisions, decisions!

also definitely the yohji monkey boots over the ann ds

those troubadour bags on oki ni are pretty gorgeous but $$$. I like those black boots, zap. get Ziggy Chen linen bag from vertice instead, if it's still there

or Zam grey bison from zfactorie

ding ding ding. All my WM shirts are like this. Short body, boxy chest/waist, slim arms and narrow shoulders. I like the fit though, it's different from what I normally wear and looks great with a longer soft tee under it (like in a lot of waywts lately). It is definitely a weird-ish fit since it's not really what most people are used to I guess. It's slim and boxy at the same time, but it doesn't billow which is why it can still look good.

That said, I have that shirt in a different color (same pattern but lavender instead of white) and it's one of my favorite shirts.
