    I'm looking for a decent pair of every day boots. I'm not ready for baller status, but I still want a nice pair of boots. I'm looking mid range pricing. I currently rock blacked out leather converse or some cheapo gbx chelsea/loafer things. I wear Danner RAT hot steels (12.5) all day at work. In the meantime I plan to pick up a pair of Clarks.

    I like the MMM ankle/calf boots for $395

    Or the NDC ankle boots for $235

    Two items still elusive after multiple physical store and on line searches:

    Air force or steel blue wool trousers of high quality, flat front no cuff. I think these would look incredible with brown brogue boots or on weekends, even sneakers. I also like to wear ACNE black derbies to work, though I do need to avoid the "bus driver" look with those colors.

    Thigh length brown leather coat. Shearling lined, must have waist and wrist cuffs as I get really cold without them. Weathered leather much preferred. No hood. I am not sure if this is called jacket, bomber, or trench. I can wait until fall and would like to spend under $3000.

    cheers

    Hello, I'd appreciate recommendations on trousers for the summer, with wicking properties - so could be tech trousers but ideally not looking like sportswear. Preferably in neutral colors and in the sub-$350 range. Thanks.

    Take a look at Outlier and Proof NY. You can also spend a bit more and get Veilance trousers. OR you can just spend $30 and get a Uniqlo linen easy pants and save $300 for other stuffs.

    Are there any jacket/coat recommendations for a college student on a budget?

    I'm looking for something that can layer well. I'm thinking: button-up shirt + sweater + jacket for work.

    I'll pay for good quality though!
