    Been kopping for awhile now and here are my results:

    Best:
    ToJ Parka (immune to the cold)
    ToJ BCDR (satisfied my leather thirst)
    W+H MA-1 (helped me survive winter with a vest on)

    Noteworthy:
    SNS Herning Stark (Charcoal and Black)
    RW Muleskinner Iron Rangers (no maintenance and look great)
    SS Suit
    KKA Hook Blazer (travel blazer)
    W+H Dress Chinos (you can wear this with anything)
    Prada Sidezips (surprisingly, very good quality and comfortable boots)
    MMM GATs (go to sneakers)

    Disagree. All of mine are pretty good quality and have held up great. IIRC synth is pretty happy with his. I feel like it just matters what pair you get- like with anything some variations/seasons will be better than others.

    Buttero Side-zips I had were really nice, just didn't fit my style.

    Luckily I still have a wishlist - I'm going shopping on Sunday for a new handbag, as my clothing budget is full until Jan 2015(!), but accessories and shoes/boots/underwear etc don't count:)

    Found a handbag on sale online, so kopped it.

    Also ordered jeans from Yoox by J Brand - now looking for last pair of jeans!

    Still going for a pizza and shopping on Sunday, but not sure yet what I'm looking for!:)

    Sounds like a dream come true - not to have a wishlist a mile long of jeans (and bikers and shirts)!

    Currently I've got all the jeans I need (10 pairs), but there's always another pair out there...wish I could do that too!

    Next year is just a pair of custom boots, if I stick to it (highly unlikely ), no new clothes until 3rd May 2016!!!!:)

    Have kopped everything on 2014 list - now already thinking about 2015 kopping plans (new boots etc)

    Have enough clothes to see me through until 2016 unless I crack for something and can't resist..:)

    Resolution ends May 3rd 2016 - but so many lovely clothes, doubt I can do it, although I'll definitely need new clothes by then!:)

    2 year clothing ban still on until 3rd May 2016, but June 2016 will see some casualties

    2 worn out jeans

    I worn out shirt

    Possibly a coat and/or jacket as well

    This ban isn't going to be easy to keep..

    Here is my last time of wearing my collapsed N and F cashmere stretch [​IMG]
