    The obvious answer is to mix and match the boots, which seems like a very Needles thing, but which I can see being a Visvim thing as well.

    Guys, I have about an hour and a half in NYC (near Port Authority) and I want to pick up some stuff for family (grandparents, etc.) back home in Asia. Bit last minute, I know. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    That area is a wasteland. You want to take something back home tho? I would imagine food won't last long.

    Oh wait the nepenthes shop is close by. Like a street or two over.

    Also if you still want food of some kind I would buy a bunch of bombolini from Sullivan Street Bakery on 47th street. Also a sour cream Apple pie from the little pie company.

    Oh. I have a better idea. The Maison du chocolat in Rockefeller center is a few avenues over and a little north. I would get some chocolates and macarons.

    I would go to shake shack for you tho

    @willy cheesesteak I actually considered it LOL... if only it would survive the 14 hour plane trip

    @indesertum & @t3hg0suazn chocolate sounds like a great idea, thanks for the recs! My initial plan was to hit up Mast Bros. in Brooklyn, but they'll be closed by the time I get there :(

    man I'm so tired of seeing the phrase "has a lot of life left," a hoodie isn't a car where it'll just stop working one day. And I assume the worst that can happen to a sneaker is the sole wearing out. If something actually falls apart then it probably wasn't well constructed in the first place and not due to extended wear.

    Oh yeah those three were great. Albator wasn't very age-appropriate though, although we didn't really care.

    As for Cabu, RIP grand Duduche.

    Someone know what the Joyce tag is about?

    I've seen other pics that have a Made in Italy tag there.

    That's got to be a really old cardigan. Jil was guest designed by James Joyce back in the 30s.

    Things do eventually happen, lining ripped, stitching undone, fabric pilling, leather looking worn as shit, hardware missing, etc. Still useable I guess, but subjective.

    But "has a lot of life left" is just a euphemism for "beat to shit". I advocate beating your own shit to death, but I'm not going to buy someone else's beat up shit. Maybe vintage stuff to get cues from, but to wear? Not so much. I suppose that I'd buy a 60s moto jacket if it was in decent condition and in a color that is impossible to get now even custom.

    Ya, too many people post beatup to shit clothing and justify it with "tons of life left." Just saying clothing does have a lifespan from wear and tear.

    Anyone know where is @jet? I would like buy some tees

    I really like the AA tri-blend tee but they do not have a white color the closest being an off-white. I am looking for something in a boxy cut with crew neck. I really cannot be spending $400+ on a Lemaire henley or t-shirt.

    Also, who makes denim in a high rise 19cm cut nowadays? I like my pair of Levi's but the hem is too narrow when wearing with boots. @Synthese has some cool jeans but I think they are old APC denim. I remember the New Standard having close to a 19cm but the rise is ridiculously low. Uniqlo bottoms are also all low rise for the most part, or t he rise is great but legs too narrow.

    Just looking for some denim for the summer to beat around in, raw denim, wash denim, would prefer a dark and light color pair.

    I regret following @kgfan5 on instagram. It always makes me feel a little bad for getting/trying to get jacked. :embar:
