    not as easy as it used to be. i can fit xl in some brands now and buy size 50/us 33, 34 max pants so i am finding less and less.

    Stop losing weight, don't want more competition in my size :p

    Buyers remorse is the fucking worst, I have two items of clothing right now that I am on the fence about, I wish I had a more concrete idea of what I like and don't like and a budget big enough to make mistakes.
    Why don't you just calculate the cost of your clothing purchases, and see how much of that could have been put towards leg extensions? That would be pretty good motivation I think.

    Stilts are cheaper than leg extensions, and can be used as weapons.

    was on yoox for $250, now on ebay for almost $500. [​IMG]
    Seriously?! Someone needs to give me a heads up, for 250 I would definitely grab it and risk the length issue.

    My new engineer boots add almost 2" to my height. Just wish that they wouldn't completely destroy my instep. If I can't break them in within a couple more days then I think I need to return them [​IMG]

    Went to Fred Segal in SM today to check if they had the navy Ervell pocket sweater,
    and they do but none in Small. I was tempted to try on the medium but it was on
    display on a mannequin.
    Want to be in New York the next time an Ervell sample sale happens. DAMN

    Nor the buys from US boutiques which i think is part of the problem. Not many places that carry it anymore. South Willard used to, Seven NYC used to but both dropped the label. Not sure who carries it still. I definitely love the label and stuff i've seen. The book is pretty cool to glance through on occasion as well.

    Bless has mad style, but when I saw it at Daily Projects, I was really underwhelmed by the fabric and overall feel of the stuff. Looks great on others, but I wouldn't pay the kind of money required to have it myself.

    ^one of my girlfriend´s friends did her internship at Bless, and they are actually buying like H&M hoodies, cutting away the labels and sewing on scraps of fur (which the interns were sent out to collect from fur companies) or whatever they are using. On with a Bless label and a 500 euro pricetag...

    Bless is good but I think that apart from the hoodcoat/jacket and maybe some of the crazier accessories, most people wouldn't be able to identify the rest. Some of the stuff is brilliant (the patterncutting of the hood on the hoodcoat/jacket is great, and then some stuff is... well yeah. There's a big Bless army though so I'm sure that everyone has to get paid something, and so the prices are a little higher than you'd really want to spend on like, a jersey knit poncho hoody ($350), etc....


    Other end of the steez spectrum: dizzhizz and I were at Uniqlo Myongdong today and I spotted a guy wearing a Saddleback bag; the same one aeglus and stvwrd have, so the third one I've seen in less than a month, in Korea. I immediately thought 'styleforum' but dizz and I were kind of embarrassed to ask about the SF connection but it turned out he had 2 Saddleback bags on at once, and the rest of his outfit was more backpacker than styleforummer, so we weren't sure in the end.


    TOJ-related: making clothes is fucking hard, not really an amateur's game. Probably get that served to me once a week or so at least. I'm probably only surviving the clothes world based on the help I get from others and then my little bank of useless information I've got in my head that is proving useful; my mom taught me how to sew when i was like 6 or 7 and I've paid attention to what I've worn since pretty much, so now it's all coming back and I don't feel like I'm searching around in the pitch black, so good there. It's interesting though... It's a game to always get better at, so I have something to do with myself for awhile...

    BTW Saddleback guy - if two Korean dudes, one all Junya'd out and the other in a TOJ black leather jacket, came up to you and asked you about your bag today, that was us.
