    Barbour/Tokito Limited Edition--waxed trench coat

    should I spring? supposed to be out in the fall and it will retail for about $850. Haven't seen any picture of the back yet; I'm hoping it's a plain back without any cowl, flap, or hood. On the one hand it seems insane, but on the other...I think I might regret if I let it pass. I would probably get many years of enjoyment out of it, wouldn't I?

    Yeh, the buy now price was close to 40 bucks, which I wasn't willing to pay for this. It's only a Van Heusen, after all. It's more the principal of the thing, and that I was hoping to win a bid for around something like 20 bucks.

    I tried on Magician's today with a band shirt and some B. Son shorts. SO DOPE. I would rock them with faded raw denim.

    i have been thinking about them lately as well, but they just seem like they would feel like cinder blocks on your feet.

    buy em and lets see the pics. it'd be interesting to see how you can make it work because i am thinking of buying some. i could never bring myself to pay more 50% of retail though.

    yeah. the resale value on those seem absurdly high. do those even go on sale at the end of the season even though they don't change year over year?

    Unless you're buying my exact BoO shirt, you're probably not getting the same one. That was the holiday collection one from 07. Not the normal oxford. Different material and fits a bit tighter.

    Dammit Chrono. So its not this one?: http://www.southwillard.com/designer...lue-oxford-2//

    ARG, I should have bought it from you when I had the chance...stupid ass me.

    No. The holiday collection shirt i had wasn't the normal oxford fabric. It was a bit lighter and the color slightly more saturated for a light blue. Fit just a touch slimmer than the plain white oxford i had in the same size. It was from the 07 holiday line.


    teger- you should've bought the fake rick hitops someone was selling on sufu for $175 a few weeks ago. Looked exactly the same as the real deal. In the black w/ milk check distressed leather. Pretty cool. I almost kopped

    Common projects or regular chucks?

    Also how does the sizing on CPs run? If i wear a 9 - 9.5US in most shoes what should i look for?

    ^ Kind of a pointless question, considering they aren't really in the same league, no? You may as well be asking "511 or 19cm?" or something.

    You'd want a 41 in CP, though.

    Ya, i know. I mean is it worth the extra money to invest in CPs or just stick to the original

    Thanks tho
