Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2773

@Fuuma is it decent quality wise or is it likely to be pretty thin. This is some kind of acrylic blend and it's $380 US, I have a hard time picturing something that is like 70% acrylic being very thick now that I think about it.

I really dislike those mid-level french ripoff brands so I wouldn't know about quality but I'd tend to look at something from COS at this price point not Sandro.

Thanks. There's a ton of dope Yohji and Marni and Lanvin ones but they are all >$600

 

Maybe an RO Faun? Or are they usually pretty slim and just long?

What do you guys think about black hightops? Are they versatile enough for everyday wear?

What do the cool kids in Paris wear?  Semi serious question.  Or (subjectively) well dressed people I guess

Judging by the wanna-be parisien girls in my office, long coats, slim turtlenecks, wide-legged pants, and Stan smiths

Stan Smiths everywhere.

So, I found this while browsing Mr. Porter and it caught my eye, but I'm a bit concerned it might be one of those things that you buy because it looks cool and never end up wearing. Any thoughts on it?

I fully support this.

I think it would be too much for me, although it is still a bit more understated than some kapital stuff

I do like it though

In theory it's pretty cool but literally every other girl on the subway I'm on is wearing some play on this combo
I miss the Barbie-blonde hair, leopard print top, miniskirt, and tall boots combo of a couple years ago frown.gif

Cool girls wear neutral or even boy pieces (white dress shirts especially) and avoid over fashiony look, magazine editor style is blech. 70s is better than 80s. I dunno, has been stable for a few months at least. Truth is style in Paris tend toward the relatively conservative even for people working in fashion.

Need a new washed denim shirt and apparently this is a very hard thing to find now (or I'm over tired and all out of internetting for the day).
I had a RRL one and an Ervell one and both are toast and don't seem to currently have anymore (also Ervell shirting apparently fits way now different than the one I had). All I can really find in this vein is the Acne Isherwood denim shirts but they are $220+. I figured APC would have one but can't find any. Uniqlo one was shit. Just want a basic washed denim for work that is good enough for not work too.
Is there something else out there for like $120? If I'm paying 220 for acne I may as well wait on the secondary market and pay 400 for Vis, but I'm not going to do that. Or of o happen to see one of the Isherwood go on sale is 52 the right call for an XL or should I go 54 (I have no experience with the brand).

What sort of style? Suitsupply makes a chambray or washed denim shirt (other styles available) that looks quite nice under a jacket. Otherwise check hollywood ranch market.

Crawford Denim makes a rinsed denim shirt.
