These are true words that I think we sometimes forget. Due to the nature of cheap prices, I think we are all guilty of a couple of things: A) holding onto/buying things that are not worn enough to justify at any price; and B) not doing the necessary work to make them wearable. If someone buys a $/€1000 odd jacket, they'll almost certainly see spending $50-100 in alterations as justified in order to have it fit to perfection. However, when you only spend $/€20 on a jacket, spending $/€50-100 seems excessive and makes the piece pointless.

I try to keep in mind how much something will cost in order to be useful and instead of looking at a jacket and thinking "Hey! It's only €20!," I try to think "Okay, when I'm done with it, it will be a €70 jacket." Honestly, it doesn't always stop me, but I make an attempt. Thinking about it, I have a brand new pair of Incotex cords that I bought at Neiman Marcus nearly two month ago. They're still with their tags and unhemmed in my closet. shog[1].gif

I also know that I love wearing the things that fit well and go with a lot of things. I often wear a navy jacket/blazer because I love the look and it's fairly easy to put together. I own a few of them and would honestly take a few more. I think I'd (and guess others here) would benefit from focusing on core pieces rather than trying to make things work. I've done it a number of times and there are quite a few things in my closet that will prove that giving advice is far easier than following it.

I'm not sure whether this was discussed or if you mean this when you say "odd buttoning," but that jacket is buttoned the opposite direction. It should be left over right.

I found a pair of Corneliani ID black suede chukka boots today. Im pretty sure that its this model; www.yoox.com/us/44422004CI/item?dept=men 

 

Do you guys have any idea who makes these boots for Corneliani? I can take pictures of the shoes tomorrow if the link isnt enough.

No need to return that Raf, it will net you beaucoup $$$ on the eBay. If you don't have an ebay account, I definitely recommend sending it off for consignment. Also that Polo SC, so sick! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I don't know White stag, unfortunately.

Are a lot of ski jackets made in Japan? Are most of them well made? I ask because you reminded me that I found one in the US. I don't know if it's for men or women as it was smaller. It seems well-made, but I don't know the brand.
