    Things do eventually happen, lining ripped, stitching undone, fabric pilling, leather looking worn as shit, hardware missing, etc. Still useable I guess, but subjective.

    But "has a lot of life left" is just a euphemism for "beat to shit". I advocate beating your own shit to death, but I'm not going to buy someone else's beat up shit. Maybe vintage stuff to get cues from, but to wear? Not so much. I suppose that I'd buy a 60s moto jacket if it was in decent condition and in a color that is impossible to get now even custom.

    Ya, too many people post beatup to shit clothing and justify it with "tons of life left." Just saying clothing does have a lifespan from wear and tear.

    Anyone know where is @jet? I would like buy some tees

    I really like the AA tri-blend tee but they do not have a white color the closest being an off-white. I am looking for something in a boxy cut with crew neck. I really cannot be spending $400+ on a Lemaire henley or t-shirt.

    Also, who makes denim in a high rise 19cm cut nowadays? I like my pair of Levi's but the hem is too narrow when wearing with boots. @Synthese has some cool jeans but I think they are old APC denim. I remember the New Standard having close to a 19cm but the rise is ridiculously low. Uniqlo bottoms are also all low rise for the most part, or t he rise is great but legs too narrow.

    Just looking for some denim for the summer to beat around in, raw denim, wash denim, would prefer a dark and light color pair.

    I regret following @kgfan5 on instagram. It always makes me feel a little bad for getting/trying to get jacked. :embar:

    Check out their power washed tee. I have a few of the AA tri-blends and picked up one one of the power washed tees recently. Unfortunately, I like the fit of the power wash more, but I prefer the fabric on the tri-blends. Such is life.

    Thanks for the recs

    I receive 3Sixteen emails all the time but never gave them a thorough review. Will check them out.

    I feel the same way about the AA power wash tee. I too ordered some and quickly threw them away. =\

    I want a thick jersey material that is averse to wrinkling or will loosen up with wear like the AA tri-blend, and is soft. Such a thing?


    edit:
    I picked up a Nike tee from their made in Italy collection and was just perfect. Thick, soft, and did not wrinkle.

    Mine has nothing except the Jil Sander.

    Joyce is a cool store though, maybe they did a special order. The Joyce outlet is probably my favorite place to shop in HK.

    Just saw a photo of @kgfan5

    Will give Voidthebrand a try again. The cotton to modal mix seems pretty good. Sizing is always an issue though and I always try to account for shrinking in the dryer.

    Hmm, I kinda dig both the SS2015 and AW 2016 actually (back to the "classic" DH look) . . .
    Not sure if he's the one to blame for somewhat average collections or the "fashion trends" lately (wearing ugly ass running sneakers with suits, exaggerated boxy coats, etc.)
    The question is : who's gonna do better at Dior Homme if KVA leaves, without f***ing up the original DH DNA? I surely don't want Dior Homme to become SLP 2
    (I do understand a brand has to evolve with the current "trends" but the SLP thing was so radical ...)

    Seconding this. Power wash is the perfect boxy cut in a thick jersey fabric

    edit: any pure cotton is gonna wrinkle a bit, gotta get a fabric blend, and none of those have the thickness of a pure cotton jersey that I've found

    Perhaps I am folding my tees wrong then.

    I usually just wash and dry then toss them in my bin. But I find that folding it leaves a cross faintly imprinted at the chest/stomach of the tee. Especially when you got stacks of tees piled up.

    Maybe I just buy some premium tees and hang them on.
