    Wooster looks like a caricature. He needs to just stop.

    why? he's a genius. his outrageous clothing is a form of self-marketing, and it's clearly paying off - do you think jc penneys and leffot are working with him because of his stellar track record at bergdorfs? please.

    Your two sentences do not follow from one another... He does look like a caricature (of himself; no mean feat), but that doesn't mean he should stop. Quite the contrary. He looks superb in that outfit, I think... :nest::blush:

    I've felt this way about the SE guys for a while any time they pop up in my Tumblr feed.

    What am I supposed to use Tumblr for?

    I tried to 'follow' people organically, but my feed ended up 30% anime, 65% soft core asian porn and 5% Sipang posts

    Sipang posts should be at 98% minimum for a satisfying total lifestyle experience. Cheers.

    And the Belgian part of that is like 19%. You can sometimes replace some Sipang with either chocolate or Ann.

    Mikey you really should go.

    No I think it would be cut more structured and be two toned :teach:
    [​IMG]

    He can't keep doing the same thing, and one person's (or many peoples') preference does not make the laced cuff coat a better or more worthwhile design than the two tone. The influence is different, the inspiration is coming from a different source and it's hard to say whether or not a design is 'equivalent'

    And it's not like the Dip Dye is a new gimmick, not that I don't totally love the pink/purple bow tie shirt :inlove: In fact neither are the shirts with contrast body parts, whether it's the collar, or the whole placket, the sleeves, or the whole front of the body, it's the same things he's always done. Except different.

    And a lot of this is hearsay as well. The wool blends are different for sure but that two tone coat has MORE wool and LESS polyester than my laced cuff. And it only retailed for $50 more two years later.

    Is tencel cheaper than cotton/rayon or cotton linen? I don't know but I am a fan. I think it would be a bit overkill to use the shiny cotton/rayon every season and I personally don't like the cotton/linen flight pants. SS13 version is 100% cotton though if they stick with what was on the line list

    I can't speak for any old sweatshirts but the two I have from SS12 are exactly what I would expect from a sweatshirt made for summer, light and breezy. I wouldn't want them hot and thick. I will have an SS11 one passing through my hands soon to compare but I don't really even know what kind of fleece existed before then.
    AND goddamn my FW11 Richard jacket is so badass, the flecked cotton/wool/linen is just amazing.

    I can't say anything about blazers cause I've never handled one new or old but I really wish I would have bought that Diamond blazer a few years ago.
    Actually I'm pretty sure the distressed blazer from SS12 was the same fabric as the raglan bomber, which was kind of stiff and awkward but hey that's cotton/linen!
    And the FW12 one is just plain wool with a contrast collar, everything in that collection is plain wool. It's British.

    Does anyone actually WANT real leather shorts? I think the cupro/nylon or whatever stuff is an awesome creation and would totally wear.

    The SS13 color palette is one of the best ever, with some really cool new pieces and some nice remakes of old favorites. I don't see what's not to like. Except CP loafers. And bad graphic tees.

    I just think it's all personal preferences, frequently with no real basis, and freakin' nostalgia goggles.
