    No, really? I meant what will you wear it with.

    Lol, sorry, I thought you were trying asking some kind of existential question.

    Probably not stuff that's super denim-bro workwear-y, to be honest. Would maybe struggle to find stuff in the closet for the first. Maybe old slim-straight 3sixteen jeans, chunky sweater, and some Kapital zip boots?

    The second seems to go more naturally with the kind of stuff I have in my closet, but I'm also not opposed to the idea of trying new things out and exploring.

    TBH both of them would look cool with a "light" 70s style, Beige and browns, large slacks or nice printed shirts. I mean that in the Margiela sense, not some Gucci frou-frou 70s posturing.

    Oh and if you look like Marvin go for it:

    If you're going to Visvim that shit don't buy any of them. Get a parka or whatever in forest green or some other nice colour.

    Thanks! I really like those ideas.

    I may go for the second just because it seems a little easier to wear.

    You're looking for a sweater to wear all summer? Move somewhere else. Sweater is a little bit ugly IMHO.

    @dieworkwear I agree with Fuuma, second would look cool with more casual almost CM stuff (which I think you wear). Don't go visvim.

    @cyc wid it go Visvim.

    I know you've posted about it before, but why get a bag like this? Friend of mine has a bag in this size range. Doesn't really carry much more than your pockets can
