    I picked up the gray long cardigan.. figured black was going to be too ubiquitous.

    Which shirt out of interest? I did exactly this around sales season with the long collarless shirt in olive, I'm about an inch taller than you and a little skinner, but it fits me well - not as voluminous as I'd hope, but the sleeves fit perfectly and end just at my wrist, fits well in the neck.

    Here's the only I pic I have with it

    I think, at least for me, big pieces, such as that cardi or a coat looks better in black than grey cuz of my skin tone and hair color. Ended up preordering, thank you CAD for the permadiscount.

    Pronounce like Yawn-Yawn. Also there should be a SS15 collection (he splits the year with one "Project" and one "Collection") - some stuff is up at ateliersolarshop.

    Current collection is the SS15 collection

    Table of Contents and Cruvoir have both put up previews of their buys on IG, but have yet to put it online

    Here's the showroom vid for SS15/C#5 Inité anyone who hasn't seen it

    Absolutely love the two showroom videos, hope there's one for Wadada

    I'm looking for a long hoodie or cardigan, preferably hoodie as I have that SP cardi coming, to go with the top. Preferably black zippers and with the same drapiness, any recommendations? This is the uniqlo plokhov one. After considering (briefly) whether or not to return the sweatshirt as I don't have anything that goes with it, I realized it's probably one of the nicest pieces I own, cut is fantastic, warm, soft, etc. Just need a complete new wardrobe.

    EDIT: that was my experience with the JJvE I got - it was great, but even when it fit me well (rarely, IMO) it didn't work with most of my other stuff.

    I know there are a few guys that pair it well with other designers and clothes, but I'm just not one for now.

    i feel like the zippers on the uniqlo hoodie are really distracting and the fabrics are just too different, the JJVE top has curled hems, hoodie doesn't, etc. Just details, but important to me.
