    I don't think it's crazy. Most of what I buy is black or grey simply because it's versatile and if I'm spending a decent chunk of money on something I want it to be versatile. Obviously there are exceptions and some things will only be available in maybe 2 colours anyway and patterns and prints are going to be coloured but I don't think it's crazy at all. If you bought ALL black, or all white then yeah. But between those 3 shades there's enough versatility, contrast etc to be fine.

    Most of my clothes is blue, with some red and grey thrown in, the only thing that's different is the shoes.

    Wear it bro! You are graduating from HS and it's a fun time. Hope that it attracts women(or men if that is your thing) and you get laid(or you get your cheese stabbed if that is your thing.) Just beware....you don't want anyone throwing up on the jacket.

    This + blue for me (denim, chambray, and some indigo stuff). Basically everything goes with everything else and you can get a lot more play out of a smaller wardrobe. I guess some people think it's "boring" but it tends to take a little longer to look dated as opposed to something colored/printed that I would get bored with in a season.

    Not sure how it would work for a GQ look though (aka hyper-tailored business casual mixed with obnoxious accessories). Seems to go against that whole idea.

    Right. Outside of black and grey I have a decent amount of indigo and pale blues and military/surplus green.

    But yeah you gotta think "How GQ are you?" And that doesn't really fit with most people on this board.

    I've been doing Black, Charcoal, Light Gray and Navy. The navy works with nothing, so I threw in some dusty tans (like chinos).

    Weird look though, it's mostly just jeans and t-shirts; trying to diversify it with knits and chambray (etc). Different materials.

    I have one set of stuff that's all navy/black/grey/some dark green, some blue, basically muted and conservative colors, then other stuff, EG mostly with flower and bird prints. Never yellow/pink/red, no heavy contrast.

    Is there a different buying process for Global rakuten vs. Japanese rakuten? I want to buy stuff of rakuten.co.jp and I'm not sure whether I'll need a proxy or not​

    Not really - as far as I can tell, Global is just a translated-to-English version. If the seller says "foreigners welcome" you shouldn't need a proxy. The Rakuten sellers can be a bit slow to get down the post office, though. Amazon it ain't. :)

    Hi, I'm from Perth and obviously I can't buy from the US online stores.... So online stores like ASOS, Uniqlo, Kaeho, TheIconic... anybody has recommendations on getting great chinos? Or good hoodies that look stylish/great?

    Why not. I'm pretty sure Uniqlo recently opened stores in AUS, wouldn't they also ship there then?
    I'm fairly certain there's a decent amount of Australians on here that shop online regularly.

    Hi everyone,

    I need some help finding a nice pair of denim that is similar to the Nudie Thinn Finn in 100% cotton. A few years ago I used to wear Nudie thinn finn dry broken twill all of the time, mainly because they were nice and light, they wore in nicely, and they were both skinny and tapered at the calves. However, I decided I was getting too old for the big pockets and yellow weft, and wanted a more minimalist look. The best pair I've been able to find is the wings and horns slim fit selvage. However, even these aren't as skinny as I'd like, and they are heavier than the Nudies. I own APC new cures and never wear them because they are extremely uncomfortable and heavy, they aren't tapered enough, and I need a higher rise.

    I've already tried naked and famous skinny guys (not tapered at calves) and rogue territory SK (same, and the pair I had was also very heavy) and rag and bone (similar issues). The closest thing I've found to the Nudie fit was a pair of Cheap Monday "four" jeans, but I'd prefer to buy something of better quality.

    If anyone knows of a pair that might fit the bill I would really appreciate suggestions. Thanks!

    A sweater is made by individually knitting the parts and sewing them together. The knit structure can vary in a single part (eg plain knit and rib knit) and the edges are finished during the knitting process.
    A t-shirt is made by cutting the parts out of knit fabric and sewing them together. The knit structure is the same in a single part and the edges have to finished by overlocking.

    Thanks, ya acne is actually in the candidates for jeans to try out. I haven't come across a raw pair with no elastine at local shops yet though.

    When listing on ebay I notice that it's very common practice to put related designer's names in your listing title so your item comes up in more searches. However, I did this recently and ebay pulled my listing saying that's against their policy. I'm guessing my listing got flagged because of the number of hits it got, but how is it that so many other sellers are able to do this? Do they just relist, or is there some trick to not setting off flags?
