Changes for me. I generally aquire my holy grail thing as soon as I save up enough cash.

Right now I want a vintage rolex air king on a croc strap. Also want mto whiskey shell wingtip boots with beveled waist from martegani, and a brogue-cap balmoral boot in #4.

finally, lost worlds bedford car coat in russet.



I imagine this to be ridiculously unwearable with anything I have btw. I jsut think its cool.
None of these will be purchased till at least march.

Just an epic piece thats at the top of your list. Something you have to own at some point. Or maybe something thats not necessarily attainable.
