$200 for all white leather Marc Jacob sneakers. Should or should not? How's the quality compare to Common Projects?

I like them, especially the burnishing. Actually I have a similar pair. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

FWIW, I have the grey on white model of these, which I got for a good price off Gilt.  Unfortunately, a scuff on the captoe has developed into a rather ugly blister that doesn't wipe when I try to clean it, and looking closely I see tell-tale signs of a weaker leather in that area.  I also feel like the insole isn't as high quality as my CP lows; it's leather, but they shift around barefoot and aren't attached to the body of the shoe like CPs, which I prefer.  Still, I rather like the look of the shoes, especially the combination of the gold eyelets and the grey, but I won't be purchasing other Marc Jacobs sneakers based on my experiences with these sneakers, unless I really, really like the look.

Ugly scuff.

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.

I feel like the Made & Crafted shirt I own has a similar cut to it: high armholes, not so fitted throughout the midsection, but nothing really billows out of control 90s office-style.

Hm, maybe I'll tuck that shirt away once I've weighed the other things I'm considering for this season.

I. So are Dana Lee chinos reasonably slim and worth the cost, or will they make me look like a big fat square, and maybe I should just get some cheaper brand that looks the same on a computer screen?

II. Cotton anoraks -- does it have to be raining?

Should I keep this Barena? It's a great piece, just a little big. I like it slouchy but not sure if it's too much. Sorry for the poor styling. I'll almost always have it unbuttoned. Kind of like it the way it is, but every store has it modeled slimmer so I think a size down might be better.

Yeah, the Barena looks pretty similar to my fit pics. Heh. Same concerns as you had, the general advice appears to not size down. Still not sure to keep or not. It looks nice/interesting, but can't really think of occasions I'd wear it.
