    Albam and Howell sounds interesting, have to check it out closer...

    Filson and carhartt is definitly in the comfort zone for me, wearing a filson mackinaw vest and carhartt duck pants right now as a matter of fact.


    Just got an albam painter's shirt, will post pics.

    Stazy, have you checked out the other colours/styles of Super glasses on Revolve? Some nice, colourful options to be had.

    alright, might as well make my contribution to this thread haha.
    I've looked around both on here and sufu, and have found little to nothing about this swedish brand called 'fifth avenue shoe repair'. It's stocked pretty limitedly, Oak and Reborn carry a few pieces but I haven'd had much luck other than that. However a local store downtown does carry a few of their pieces, one of which I picked up for my ex-gf last summer. I found out this same store stocks a few mens pieces and decided I'd go check it out. Long story short, I'm very satisfied with the stuff. It's definitely on the pricier side, but this is now my favorite label and I'll be waiting for some of their items to go on sale because the fit, quality, and design is all on-point. I did pick up a red long-sleeved tee on sale a month or two ago, and it's already one of my favorite things to wear. The material is very soft, and the fit is drapey while not being too large (length and sleeves are the right length) I encourage anyone to take a look at this brand. www.shoerepair.se

    Yes. I like the stuff i've seen from them. A sufu user is selling that same shirt and i've wanted to buy it since he put it up. A nice color and cool twist/vagina type thing on the side. I'd like to see more from them to see if they differ much from the other swedish brands (acne/filippak/whyred/tigerofsweeden) in terms of design quirks. Hope to see more stockists in the future so i can check stuff out on sale

    chrono, Fifth avenue have gotten loads of good press here in sweden, and definitly seems to be a much "fashion forward"/high fashion approch compared to Acne and the like. Not sure I like what ive seen that much, but they are sure to get more (worldwide) attention in the future.
    According to my gf, they even have a haute coutoure (sp..) line.

    I don't get the hulk reference... The "usual" is a lot more refined but I had fun wearing my new stuff today. I can't remember the last time I bought a hoodie. lol.
