    don't know anything about lanvin footwear quality these days but from here those look filmsy as fuck and like any other generic barneysbrand shitty tin soled derbies. raf/jil/yang li/.... derbies tend to have a much heavier silhouette, fuller toe box, thicker sole etc



    black sole, leather patches...

    I'd say yes on both of those. Grey mids may be favourite CPs ever.

    He puts out his zip blazer every season. Have two of them and wear them religiously. Don't really like this rendition.

    What's different about this one? Is it too boxy?

    The material is lightweight and it's unlined. Even just trying it on once the arms became pretty honeycombed. It's lightweight to the point where the zipper is even a little wavy.

    The armholes seemed higher than normal. The fit is typically tight and narrow up top and relaxed through the mid.

    Last seasons was a gem and this upcoming seasons looks really nice as i think its a wool blend and fully lined.

    Don't get me wrong, it's still a nice spring blazer, just don't think it's his strongest offering.

    Can't decide whether to break 2 year clothing ban as boyfriend let me down and left me, not buying the 2 pairs of jeans I wanted..

    Do I buy them for myself, or stick to the ban?

    I might not live 2 years anyway so I don't know why I'm depriving myself..

    Don't really need the jeans as I've got 10 pairs, just like getting new clothes...

    Feel too ill to decide ..:)

    ^^I passed on that one over the slanted pockets myself. Not silly, just a bit off. I'm sure it's a nice piece, though.

    Robert Geller Tarmac bomber or Silent Damir Doma mesh back bomber?

    I cannot choose one:

    I like the RG abstract design in the back but the body seems really short
    I like the SDD mesh back design in the back, but the zipper placket is on the left. Longer body, droopier fit, which I like. It's is also more MA-1 than bomber

    Should I get both? I don't have closet space...
