    What do you guys think about this $370 jacket from apolis activism?

    The only reason why I'm a little unsure is because I've never bought anything in olive green.


    Olive green is a pretty solid color, it's used by the military so there's nothing tacky about it. I'm not sure of the quality but for $370 I would make sure it fits or that you can return it since it is a lot for a bomber jacket IMO.

    Does anyone know if the Uniqlo in NY still has the deal with jeans where you get two for the price of one?

    It may be a moot point - it's about the shape of your head, face, haircut etc. Ain't it?
    Of course it is. It's just that I've seen these glasses only in the standard shop perspective.

    What's this kind of finish called on these leather boots? Distressed? Matte?

    And what's the best way to protect/care for this leather? I use cream or Obenauf's on my other shoes but they have more conventional leather.

    I think thats a horribly unstylish and uninteresting jacket for 370$. Looks like something by H&M Divided.

    +1. I feel like I've seen that jacket there a hundred times before.

    I prefer the 634s, the heavy but breathable denim is very interesting if you've never owned such a pair before. Also the backpockets on the F380 kind of turn me off (stitching and shape)

    Fair points; if he wants sweet fading results faster, though, consider FH.

    For those who wear slim fit tees or polos, do you have to have muscular build to look good?

    I got some size S slim fit RLPL polo shirts. I have 35" chest and they fit just about right, not much extra room, but not too tight, but I feel like they make me look too skinny and little. I don't have much muscle but I have wide shoulder, and I look all right with my other regular fit polos, should I return these slim fit RLPL polos?

    Thanks

    Guys, kind of a long shot, but does anyone know where I can find these Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81's in this color scheme?

    [​IMG]

    They're sold out on Zappos in my size (10 or 10.5 are fine).

    If you're really skinny, the extra room helps to keep you from looking emaciated. A bit of size helps fill out a tight polo. That's beside the point though. If you don't like the way you look in a shirt, it probably ought to be returned... or you could eat more and lift a little.

    Now then, time for a noob question- how dark of a belt could I get away with, with a pair of shoes colored similarly to that pair?
