    I'd wear actual service boots or say an old jacket but not insignias or identifying stuff, that's just me though, not trying to make it a universal thing. I'd also wear a bleu de travail but not with a name tag/factory identification/etc., same principle.

    Now the only military thing I wear is an old F2, I'm not much of a gear queer and people in full anime military cosplay make me a little bit uncomfortable although I like it in pictures:

    Although I differ from OJ in that I prefer Visvim 73 folks for something like this, the Nonnatives are nice. The slim shaft, upturned toe, materials make it pretty different from an actual military item. They will go well with El Bert's stuff (and Belleville's would not).

    I think its easier to appropriate when the stuff is obsolete, like older military boots are cool, look at spacepope's. I'd wear Belleville's, but only for a decent looking trekking / beater boot, not really for fashion.

    well, yes. but it could've been just one zipper, like on any other boot.

    While I do like the Visvim Virgil when these nonnative came out, but back ln-cc carried them, I loved them. I liked the bigger toebox area compared to the Virgil's and also they're higher boots. But if visvim ever were to make the patrician without the brogue I'd be all over em. I ended up getting the Nonnative for $203+shipping off rakuten which is a lot cheaper than ln-cc 2011 full retail at like $1500.

    Is coverchord still the best place to buy Nonnative? And is it run by the nonnative people (by far the biggest selection), I've only ever ordered from nth American stockists but there's so much good shit on Coverchord.

    coverchord can ship directly to US. there are other japanese sites that sell NN but not as big of a collection. nn pieces in us shops tend to be overpriced sadly

    edit: they ship to "north america" so I think that includes Canada?

    Also, not clothing, a 2003 Honda Civic. Nothing fancy, but it's huge step up from having no car at all. Hello weekend getaways!

    It's a bit much but mine looks great under another layer. If you picked up an L, I might take it off your hands. :)

    Another Esk knit, a Guernsey. Kind of impossible to see from the photo. Can't get enough of those camel hair knits.

    Picked up a Nike Tech Pack fleece hoodie, pants and crewneck sweatshirt at an outlet. Been waiting for them to drop in price here since they came out. Very comfortable and I like the athletic fit.

    UPDATE:

    So, it's too big. Like, possibly irrevocably too big.

    BUT! I have a tailor who has proven before that he can slim shoulders, so maybe I will have him take half an inch off each side, which should be sufficient to get it "into spec." Taking in the body should be no problem and other than the shoulders being just a bit too wide I think it could be made to work for me pretty easily.

    Tell me not to. Tell me if it will ruin it. Otherwise I'm tempted to give it a shot. This is a really cool blazer. Tie is YSL as well.

    Also working on a collar design that is less spread.

    SVB for real don't do it.

    Sell it to miran so he can wear it on a fancy date with his wife and repair his marriage.

    Also, Margiela loves that style of cut, so maybe try Yoox for something cheapish in your size?

    Sapphire ring for my wife for our upcoming 10 year anniversary. Also, hotel reservations.

    Also, gearing up to do a photolog at Viberg in June, about the same time @Synthese is in Japan doing whatever stories he has planned. Will probably also do a "3 days in Vancouver" story. Any stores you guys want me to see? I usually do Roden Gray and Haven, and sometimes Gravity Pope. Brooklyn Clothing Co and Neighbor will also be on my list this time. Anything else, guys?
