    so for some nice outerwear options, i tried a very light julius trench (sz 2 seems to fiT!) and a devoa single button collar-less one -- construction is fantastic, in fact devoa seems pretty amazing in general, i tried a few and the sharp shouldered silhouettes are stunning, the fit is tight and very sharp cuts etc but you prob know this already it's just fun but a bit opposed to what i usu. prefer

    i know ! i just got some UU blazers so maybe a trench would be more of a gap filler, both are nice but i don't want to buy the two, need yohji funds :slayer:
    i wouldn't wear the trench with this outfit, probably not with chucks. hmm, tough decision, will return tomorrow with a friend and maek a decision. that might mean returning the UU blazers hah


    Layers

    edit: gdl got it ;)


    ya was nice but a bit slim, the shoulders fit well so sizing up is not good. i'd prob wear with a tee rather than a shirt, gives more room in there :eek:

    edit2: i will prob pick these up
    woven cotton trousers with cuffs and slight crop
    yohji of course :inlove:

    Shah, that devoa looks great. definite winner. return UU blazers. you'll be bored of them in no time.

    I really like that Rick blazer. In fact, Rick's blazers are one of the few things of his I do like.

    ^ i went specifically to check out harnden stuff, no jackets left obviously but it was good to finally see what the hype has been all about (which makes me ask, why all the hype :confused: )


    hah looks like you and everyone else like it a lot more ! the julius really didn't seem like anything else julius i've come across, maybe that's why i liked it
    will go try the devoa and i guess pick it up, i guess a few slim-ish items won't hurt :p

    They will look huge on you i think. Ever tried it on and like it?

    SVB: Toe is too pointed for my taste. Needs to be more stubby and rounded like the 2nd pair, which is okay. They both just look super elongated and it looks bad

    Yeah, I saw that the model was 6'2" a good five inches taller than I. I guess even sizing down wouldn't help with that. I just can't seem to find any good shorts :(

    I have relatively smallish feet; I wear a US size 8. Does that change your opinion at all?

    I'm trying to get away from the "clunky" shoes that everyone says they hate on me, but maybe those bals are too far in the other direction.
