    Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread

    Purchased a bottle of Au coeur du desert this week, which I've been thinking about buying for some time. It doesn't disappoint. Today I'm wearing the sample of L'Air Des Alpes Suisses which came with it, and it's a very pleasant white floral. Seems very wearable without being too aggressive...

    Random Fashion Thoughts (Part 3: Style farmer strikes back) - our general discussion thread

    Chuck 70s are definitely made of harder wearing materials. My last pair of regular Chucks actually had a tear in the Canvas that I had to sew back together. I'm a little disappointed they discontinued the Chuck II line. I really liked the idea of the gusseted tongue but wasn't huge on the...

    Random Fashion Thoughts (Part 3: Style farmer strikes back) - our general discussion thread

    I don't know, it's a combination of wanting to keep nicer stuff looking nice, and not wanting to think too hard about how I look before I do certain menial tasks. If I'm going to be trudging through dirty snow or riding my bike I don't really want to wear a pair of sneakers that I'd prefer to...

    Random Fashion Thoughts (Part 3: Style farmer strikes back) - our general discussion thread

    I'm curious, do folks around here have any preferences for beater sneakers? I have MM GATs and several other pairs of fancy sneakers but they never feel appropriate for things like walking to the grocery store. Meanwhile I have a pair of Sambas that I've worn a hole in the sole of. I've...

    Not wearing anything today yet, but last night was Le Labo Patchouli 24. I've had very positive reactions to that one in the past. It's quite strong though, so I'm pretty selective about the settings in which I'll wear it.

    Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned?

    One of the things about online dating is that it's hard to really judge chemistry before you've actually met, and there's really no way to filter by personality traits. But you need to filter by something, so why not limit your search to people you're superficially physically attracted to...

    Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)?

    I have the non-cardigan version of that SNS Herning sweater and it's definitely not thin at all (nor are any of my other Herning sweaters). The point about the lack of the two-way zipper is fair but I'd probably just wear it open most of the time anyway. I'm a pretty big fan of the brand...

    Random Fashion Thoughts (Part 3: Style farmer strikes back) - our general discussion thread

    When I'm in one of my "jeans are boring" moods I seem to end up buying pairs of cords. Still casual, but with some texture and look good in colors. I find them super comfy too. Meanwhile I usually end up having to take every pair of pants I buy to a tailor.

    Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned?

    I'm 6'3" so I tend to lean towards longer jackets and shirts. That feeling when a jacket is too short (and is way too short when you lift your arms) drives me a little crazy, so I'd prefer to err on the side of too long. But I definitely get that this isn't the classic cut for this sort of...

    Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned?

    Picked up this Schott jacket at the Mr Porter sale. Looking for feedback on the fit. I'm feeling like the camera angle is adding a bulge at the hips that isn't there IRL and it's actually pretty slim throughout (Sorry, I have no clue what I'm doing with cameras). It is a little narrow for me...

    CdG Incense Avignon today. Big fan of this, very easy to wear crisp winter scent. Performance isn't amazing but honestly, I'm leaning towards lighter scents lately.

    Discussions about the fashion industry thread

    Probably none of them? I'm not really convinced that the "metaverse" is a thing people who aren't Facebook or venture capital firms care about in the slightest. There's a fairly large percentage of people who report that they get VR sickness no matter what setup they use.

    The last meeting on my calendar today is "Team Meeting (Mandatory)". That's bound to be good news, right?

    Huh, you're right, I had no idea those were different fragrances. Fragrance names are, on occasion, very confusing.

    I just had a package delivered after 3 weeks in transit. It was supposed to be 2 days. Apparently parts of the USPS are fucked, especially international sorting facilities.

    Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread

    I know Sauvage is kind of the trendy mainstream fragrance of the moment right now. For me it's one of those "it's fine, I neither love it or hate it" sort of things. Very ambroxen heavy. It reminds me of a lot of designer stuff in that it smells pleasant, but doesn't feel like it has a...

    Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread

    Haven't tried Assoluta, but I've been pretty disappointed with the performance of the Colonia variations I've tried. Even the Colonia Leather and Colonia Oud, and those are normally longer-lasting notes. To a certain degree, I think this is intentional, though. I think a lot of older-vintage...

    Scent/Fragrance of the Day thread

    Floraiku The Mountain Standing Still. It's tea and oud. Fragrantica lists a saffron note but it's not coming through for me. Very linear. Not sure that's a bad thing, though. I really like the tea note used, reminds me very much of sniffing a freshly opened tin of black tea. I often find...

    That's probably reasonable...the book is long and dense.

    Carnal Flower: Wow, a fragrance with ylang-ylang in it that I don't hate.
