    yea, crazy I know. I'm 5'8, 150 or so, fairly slim, but athletic build...and finding one that fits slimmer and shorter has been a challenge. the closest I've come to finding one that fits perfectly was actually a juicy couture one, out of all brands. it was a dressier, more structured peacoat that fit perfectly in the shoulders and length (b/c it was technically considered "cropped"). but the collar was huge and I like the option of having the collar down and up.

    Still trying to find some ps sundance boots... size 10 anyone?

    mmmmm...those are close to the top of my list as well. I think I'd be an 11 or 12 in them.

    A lot of the things posted here are not "holy grails".

    A holy grail is something that is practically unobtainable, either because it is rare or because it is way out of your budget, that you hope to one day be able to own. Or, something that you saw in a vision and don't even know if it exists.

    The next purchase you're planning is probably not a holy grail.

    I don't really have a holy grail item, but a perfectly fitting G2-style bomber jacket would be pretty epic.

    It's unfortunate for me that many of my holy grail items simply do not exist (yet...) and they're mostly pieces I have dreamed up in a "What if I was a designer... scenario".

    -One would be a leather jacket similar to this Tim Hamilton one except it would have a rich, deep reddish collar and have the Rick Owens wrinkled/aged look to it. It would also have the addition of several more zippers, a skinnier fit, and functional buckles to the point that, if I wanted to, I could buckle my arms down in a straight jacket style (just for the sake of saying I can).

    -Oh, and a slim fitting v-neck. Impossible.

    This is maybe the best part about being a maker. I can put (some) dreams into hand.

    Grail item? White's.

    I'm a bit jealous and I have always thought of pursuing a career in designing clothes but it's unfortunately not a practical one.

    Curious, how difficult is the jump for what you currently do to shoe making? I'm sure it's a large one, but not an impossible one.

    I don't know, exactly, but I hope to work at a shoe repair shop someday. It's something I'm really interested in.

    http://www.eluxury.com/estore/browse...sp?id=11709891 Rick Owens leather in XS. Not necessarily that jacket, but yeah. Do I have $1400 in the bank I could drop on it? Yeah. Would I be eating ramen for the next year? Yes. I should probably just man up and buy it, but that would probably be the most fiscally irresponsible thing ever.

    I would cop the reverse color pattern of that jacket.

    Oh forgot the discoball shirt which will be more of a spring cop.

    A pair of Tricker's monkey boots in espresso. Only available in the Japanese market and not in my budget for the foreseeable future.
