    Any difference between 'Dior' and 'Christian Dior' in terms of cost, quality, marketing? Just curious. Google is no help.

    Is it vintage? Thrifted Dior/Christian Dior is not really all that valuable. Dior Homme is the line that shows on the runway.

    Thanks. Yeah, I've seen both in the resell shops (Dior less frequently, obvs), but I couldn't discern any real difference in terms of quality. I actually find the older stuff more compelling, especially when trying for that douche-y Kevin Bacon look from Animal House. Ahem: [​IMG]

    I don't understand why you would try for that, but it's cool that you found good stuff for it. I don't really find any Dior particularly compelling, maybe the Slimane years would have been cool but I was way too young to experience them firsthand at the time.

    Well, I went as Kevin Bacon's Character From Animal House for Halloween, so that helped. [​IMG] Actually, I do sort of like the late nite cable prep look from the 80's. (Tiny blazer, a tight, brightly colored sweater, and you can walk around like a young Jay McInerney, fretting over whether your watch makes you look rich enough). A bit confused, too, given all the discussion / copious amounts of dough dropped on the 'trad' 'ivy' look around here (not to equate you with everyone else, but still...).

    Can anyone identify the light-vanilla sneakers found in the bottom right hand corner of this image? At first I thought they were PF Flyers, but I didn't spot their distinctive "A"-ish logo on the side of the shoe; this is very confusing.

    Is it bad to wear pants/footwear that are the same color? Thinking about kopping some "camel" colored shoes to wear with khakis (among other bottoms).

    Also, if a certain online store isn't on the official stocklist, is it still ok to buy from?

    Which tshirt fits better? Both are from Sunspel - the white is a small while the gray is a medium (the accidentally sent me the wrong size).
