Ditto on the school rugby, very much so. In addition, I think for British people, wearing rugby shirts outside of the game is something that only rich, conservative, ex-private school men do. It's that 'image' that Ralph Lauren and others who promoted rugby shirts in the US context were seeking, of course decontextualized and freed of any negative connotations, and it's spread from there. But I can't see myself ever wanting to wear a rugby shirt.
chouinard made rugby shirts popular with mountain climbers, afaik he got them from umbro. i think 'context'gets somewhat overblown. i mean they're hot with short shorts, and isn't that enough?

Anyone know where to get some sleek black/brown boots for max £400? I want the Margiela cubans but they are impossible to get now. Been looking at Story et Fall but their website is really broken? There's barely any pics and I can barely tell if they are still in business.
...they can be found all over the place. How about some red pythons?

@malcb33 i can’t do the legit rugby. Thick, coarse cotton and the flex rubber buttons. Too many memories of high school rugby.
but rugby style knit polos can be dope.
There’s a nice micro cable knit one from the CHCM house line I’m just waiting for it to go online.
I prefer ones with a full button placket or open collar, but this kind of stuff...
Long sleeve polos are wildly underrated round these parts. Me personally I love the Tom Fords

Does Jil Sander no longer have any of its own stores in the US? I went to the Chicago location over the weekend and found out that it closed and is now a Goop store, and went online and saw that the website no longer listed any US stores. It's a shame, because I feel like the current iteration of Jil Sander really benefits from a B&M presence because a lot of what is interesting about the pieces can only be discerned in person.

I grew up in Miami (well, Hialeah), and distinctly remember wrapping myself up in a jacket, sweater and scarf when the weather hit... 50 degrees
Haha thats also me man, can’t lie. The weather hits 70...let alone 60 and I’m wearing knits and turtle necks. I wasn’t made for cold, I’m like the Jamaican bobsled team in Calgary

Oh geez. What can be in a Goop store. Pretty sure we don't want to know.

Is Mr. Porter's site really screwed up for anyone else right now? I can't log in to my account or add things to my cart.
