    Was thinking about getting a French Connection jacket/coat today and can get it at roughly fifty percent
    off, but i was wondering if their quality was any good? I'm very gentle with my clothes and have yet to
    experience any holes or tears in any of my clothes, even the cheap brands i buy, so i was wondering if
    i should even bother with them. They're a really good price for me and i have a difficult time finding jackets
    as it is, so this is a miracle for me, but i don't want to buy it if it won't last me a few years.
    Anyways, i apologize for the skyscraper of text. Please and thank you in advance! :)

    What is the best deep indigo slim straight raw denim for around $100? I am Canadian, around 31.5" waist, about 6 ft. tall and I like to cuff my jeans. I mostly wear Clark's DBs and sneakers with sweaters or tucked in shirts. Thanks in advance.

    I have a pair of vintage tricker's bourton in light brown in desperate need of a resoling. What kind of sole should I get put on them?

    DO NOT. FCUK is awful quality, and it would only be a deal at 95% off

    It's actually, like, 70%-ish percent off, but i don't know.
    I'd prefer a gray jacket, but i don't think i'll find anything else...

    There will always be something else. I see you're new here, lurk for a while and get an idea of what higher end brands really tickle your fancy, then save up the occasional piece. Srsly

    Ok, so i have a problem. I have a very weird body type. Nearly all clothes end up being too long on me. I am 5'10", 160lbs, with a muscular build for my size. My arms are too big for nearly all cardigans, sweaters, that properly fit the rest of my body... on for regular shirts, they always end up being too long. Here I am wearing a size S in Jcrew. I can't go any smaller. It fits the rest of my body fine, but it is always too long.... with every brand. Should I just spend the money and get all of my stuff tailored? Im assuming that won't be cheap and may be silly doing it too JCREW shirts. Can I get by wearing shirts with this length?

    Anyone have experience with T by Alexander Wang? How's the fit and do you guys like this cardigan? Was thinking of picking it up at Barneys. Word.

    If it matters to you, it's all made in China. The pricing is actually pretty fair though, and the knits are pretty decent. Haven't tried any of it on to be honest

    Figuered as much. Seems like his line has been winning awards left and right and my wife loves his clothes. Granted that doesn't mean anything w/ regards to how it will work for me, but I haven't heard anything negative about them. That cardigan by the way is $285, not too bad.

    I think I saw that one today (not sure, but it was a knit that was at $285), decent weight to the knit, 100% wool, decent hand. All in all you could do much, much worse for the price. More stockists seem to be picking up T, but I haven't seen much for his mainline

    Good to know. They're offering free shipping, probably pick it up, and if it doesn't work return. Feel silly buying a cardigan when it's 95 degrees out here in L.A., but fuck it, sweater looks cool.

    Hey, your name sounds familiar ;)

    Gonna have to go with Unbranded. N&F quality for less money. There's thread on them some where.
