@nicelynice I would personally get rid of the Finecreek and the Addict sheepskin. The Finecreek trucker feels very repro workwear to me, which doesn't seem in line with your style. The Addict sheepskin looks kind of plain. I like the Valstar and the DR best on you. Plus, if you have to get rid of two, I feel like the Vastar should stay just because it's a different color from the others, which might help add variety to a small wardrobe.

Comme boring? Wut? Curious what you find exciting.

@nicelynice of the four, I would get rid of the Valstar and try to keep the rest. If you insist on a second, I would say the addict sheepskin. The FCL and the Addict horse are the two best (although both Addicts fit better than the FCL).
Boring as compared to themselves from previous seasons. I'm talking about Homme Plus, yeah sure its loud, but the mens clothes has been mostly the same type of suiting for several seasons.

I guess I wish for a brand like that, I would love to see them go back into darker stuff, more structural. Maybe play with current trends more such as the gorp core stuff. I guess I'm just tired of the goofy asymm suits with sequins or attached pieces. I find brands like Sacai doing much more interesting things than comme.

Also regarding the leather jacket, I'd probably get rid of the Sheepskin because it's boring and the FCL because it's looks kinda plain. I think I don't like leather truckers.

On another note how the heck were you in Japan for subsidized work? I literally have been calling the embassy every week and they haven't let me in so I can go back to Japan to my job.

Ahh makes more sense, I sadly had to leave for family stuff and couldn't make it back before the close.
We just left in early March just as things were starting to get serious, but we were only staying for 6 months this time. And I guess we won't be going back for a while...

Yeah I have no idea but from what I gather tourism isn't being allowed anytime soon especially since workers aren't being allowed. I got a video call with my bosses and I fear that they will tell me that they can no longer wait for my return. Although it is what it is, much more people are having it worse. I at least get to spend all this time with my family that I didn't have before.

Are outbreaks slowing down in Japan currently? I haven't kept up in the last few weeks. I know there won't be any tourism probably for the rest of the year, but I was really hoping by spring travel might be an option if things are starting to get better.

Compared to the rest of the world Japan seems to be doing fine, but their economy is just as bad if not worse right now then other countries. I work in a boutique hotel, and our occupancy rates are abysmal. Even before I left, Kyoto was a ghost town.

The tight restrictions on foreigner residents, and tourists don't look like they will disappear for those in hard hit countries like the US.
