    Really tempted to buy this Oliver Spencer Helvellyn Jacket I tried on today which was on sale for AUD385.

    And the age old dilemma, in which color? Navy vs. Khaki.

    I like the khaki green better too, although I wonder if you can size down one?

    Thanks gdl203 and SirGrotius, I leaning toward khaki as well. This size fits my arm snugly with a sweater underneath, I'll give the smaller size a go though and see how it goes.

    Nespresso Coffee maker?

    [​IMG]


    I got one of these about 5 years ago, used it a lot but ended up getting rid of it about 2 years ago cos I got sick of ordering $40 worth of pods and waiting a few days.
    Right now I just brew regular coffee and use a plunger/french press maybe 2-3 times a week. My regular drip coffee just died this morning so I need something else, being back in the NY area if i order pods they should arrive the following day now, and since they started selling Nespresso machines in Target and stuff I'm somewhat hopeful they will start selling the actual pods in stores to compete with Keurig and whoever else. I miss the convenience of a single cup brewer and I miss espresso. I have a $100 gift card at Target which is why I'm considering it (though I might just get an xbobx one instead).
    Thoughts?

    Been thinking about getting a pair of Japanese made roper boots. Are either of these a bad idea? Would be worn with jeans, Chimala chambray shirts, RRL jackets and the like.

    More photos behind the spoiler tags, and feel free to rip me a new one if these are indeed really ugly.

    I like the first pair more. I think it has a nicer colour.

    RG patch bomber.
    RG tencel bomber.
    Rick owens MA-1.
    SIki Im Stealth bomber.

    Pick one. I wonder if the Stealth bomber will be really heavy... looking for something I can wear more often in the bay (on the lighter end of things).

    RG Tencel is your best bet if you're looking for a lighter offering - nice and breezy, excellent drape. I'd say go for that unless you find a S/S Rick MA-1 that you really love. Some of the Rick MA-1s are great, but some of the fabrics are a bit of a miss, especially for the price
