    It's amazing how shitty service in this city is. And of course, people who wear t-shirts and shittily distressed jeans get immediate and courteous service [​IMG] Dunno about you guys, but I refuse to buy from shitty SAs. The idea of rewarding poor service is not particularly attractive to me. I'm hesitant to even buy from the company since it's they're decision to hire them. Oh, but I tried on the Lanvin wool trench, sooooo nice (but the 36 on the rack at the New York Barneys has a defective zipper, tried for 5 or 10 minutes to get the damn thing to zip up, wouldn't work and I actually got stuck for a bit, I can assure you that it's warm lol) Also, 34: [​IMG] or 36: [​IMG] I'm really terrible at sizing things for myself, for whatever reason.

    I got a shirt today from Opening Ceremony in XS.
    Seems like I say this every time I try a new brand but DAMN this thing fits perfect.
    Too bad I got it on deep discount on a fluke and they're normally $300

    34:
    or
    36:


    36 looks like poo to me.
    Then again, some might say the shoulders are too small on the 34 :shrug:

    Latvia is a modern European country, so I don't see why this would be the case. It's not like they've shipped production to Vietnam or China.

    Of course, I'm also half Latvian so I may be biased.

    1/8th Latvian here. NOT LATVERIAN MAGICIAN FUCK

    Finally putting together my sale thread, I keep adding things I forgot about and I forgot how long and arduous a task it is no wonder I've been putting it off so long [​IMG]

    Ran out of time to snap pics and was just forming a rough draft today, plus cam battery was dead [​IMG][​IMG]

    PM your homie a pre-sale.

    Nowhere in Vantown even sells it, closest you'd get is BBBF.

    I've noticed more and more Prorsum falling prey to the Chinese as well

    Most of Burberry and Moncler stuff is made in Romania now iirc. About SNS, here's a more detailed explanation:

    i don't know what you guys are talking about. ive got like 7 runway pieces from prorsum and every single one of them is made in italy.

    It's amazing how shitty service in this city is. And of course, people who wear t-shirts and shittily distressed jeans get immediate and courteous service [​IMG]

    5'11 last I checked, though it's a lot of leg. I can pretend to be 6'0 when I wear my Ricards [​IMG] It's only knits that are getting the China treatment, jackets, leathers, shirts are all Italy as far as I've seen. I wonder why knit production seems to be getting more expensive (so many companies dropping to lower-level manufacturers when they should all be using Cucinelli) Late edit: Also handled some Rodarte scarves, so ridiculous. Felt like they were going to disintegrate by my touch (0)

    What are your guy's thoughts on the Wool Sperry's? I'm convinced that they're bad-ass but the wool is throwing me off. [​IMG]

    I just looked at the chino thread for the first time in several months. Things I saw....

    Are slim fit Dockers too slim for a corporate job?
    Help, Dockers are cut too slim for me!
    Is it ok to wear Dockers in a bank?
    Hey, check out Lands End chinos!

    Fortunately LL Bean was not mentioned, otherwise I may have entered into deep depression and possibly a coma. Blame Levi for the sad state that is known as business casual.

    Sperry's are eternally bad ass, as are Chucks. Here Sperry has artfully combined two classics together-- the lower of the Chuck with the upper of the boat shoe. Plus, the wool adds a touch of old world charm and craftsmanship. What's not to like?

    You make a good point. I just wasn't 100% sure if they were tacky or not. I'm pretty new to this forum and I'm more accustomed to the Superfuture look, if even that. I think the wool will be a nice compliment to the autumn weather.

    Oh btw, would these kinds of shoes best fit chinos or would they go well with jeans in general?

    dior jeans on deep sale, 17.5 cms and 19cms in various washes and colors

    price on the initial page includes VAT, so subtract 20% from it... sz 29 17.5 cms for like 175 shipped

    also solid prices on mediocre lanvins and someone def needs to cop a pair of those deeply discounted margiela boots for their girl
