    A badass car is so much baller than badass clothes that there is no comparison, sorry guys.

    Guess it also depends on where you live. Having a badass car in a city isn't nearly as fun since you don't drive it a ton (unless you commute out of town), have to parallel park everywhere and impossible to not get dinged up. Then again, if you have the money for a $60,000 car you probably have enough for private parking and stuff like that.

    I dunno. People differ though. For me i'd rather get a nice $12,000 barely used car than a $45,000 brand new entry level bmw/merc and use that $30,000 to spend on wardrobe, vacation, some toys, and then savings/invest.

    The clothes people talk about here really is chump change when talking about cars though so hard to compare. Not that hard to save up, sell some old clothes and buy some nice stuff but we're not talking about $6000 suits or anything. Usually the max people discuss is like $1300 for dick dunks, augusta boots, or on sale rick/julius leathers. Difference between h&m leather and rick leather is like $1000 but difference between civic and bmw is like $30,000 so definitely tough.

    Some car forums though i'm sure have guys who get badass modern cars and spend a fortune on older cars fixing them up while scrimping on other factors like some here with clothes

    Yeah but if you don't give a fuck about cars then that doesn't matter. Frankly as long as my car doesn't look like complete shit thats good enough for me.

    Throw in a bad-ass bike and you're really there. Maybe a ballin' boat to put you over the edge.

    I'm thinking an M5, a 124" Bourget Big Daddy, and a 38' Scarab with twin big blocks, blown no less. Maybe even supercharge the M5 just in case some guy in a Z06 think he's more ballin' 'cause he can pull on you.

    I would kill for an old XKE (british racing green, tan leather interior, spoke wheels), but I would worry about it too much. There are too many idiots on the road simultaneously driving, talking on their mobile, eating a burrito, clipping their toenails and changing their shirt. All of them with 5 DWI's and no insurance.

    Would never get a nice car. Over here in Aus tax is insane on 'luxury' cars so the price is ridiculous. M3 is like triple the US retail.

    Besides that, parts and labor are way too expensive and I would just prefer to be able to have a nice life and a basic car. If I lived in the states or somewere without insane luxury tax I would probably get something nicer though.

    ^ can anyone confirm that the sizes listed on the site are marked Lanvin/UK sizes?

    Im sure they would be

    The size printed on the lanvins is the Euro size, which runs quite large.

    I feel the patch logo + signature is a bit much.

    I think that's the point snake, and I like it. Rolling were the first sneaker I loved :p before I knew anything about clothes/baller sneaks/etc.
