the daggers to my heart. they sting.
I think its thumb envy and they want @StanleyVanBuren banned.
So I've been looking around for a black denim jacket with side pockets and finally found something that I actually like.
Originally, I want something JP/IT/US made. But might have to settle with this one for now as I've been looking around but found nothing that fits the criteria.
Someone suggested that I should take a look at the recent release of Robert Geller's denim jacket, but the fit is very cropped. (http://man.totokaelo.com/robert-geller/denim-jacket/black/H1D4FD)
Here's a picture of the denim jacket I'm interested in:
It's a type-I jacket as opposed to the mainstream type-III jacket. Would also appreciate some insights on Levi's Line 8 quality. It costs 60 quid with a student discount. I think orSlow and Our Legacy did similar one a couple of seasons ago.
What do you think of the jacket?
I already have a type-II, Vis 101, and a type-III, Vis 103, jackets.
(Did Hiroki get the naming wrong?)
I was also thinking on getting a black and white 'Peace" patch and stick it on the front pocket. Does doing this make the jacket looks cheap? If you guys see me in the street, what your first thought would be on a guy wearing a jacket with one patch on it.
someone would probably punch you if they saw you wearing a black and white peace patch on your front pocket. it just makes it look too affected
fwiw, i prefer the type-i over the geller
Has anyone tried Howlin's socks?
Also, Fok will punch him in the face for describing the Geller jacket as cropped.
I'm on board with the type-1, not so much the peace sign patch. Or at all, really, although I'm sure if some esoteric Japanese streetwear brand came out with a jacket with a peace patch on it people here would be all over it.
Appreciate the honesty.
I'm not even the thumb king anymore!
But yes, I have received threats
From Miran I presume.
Hey fam, long time no talk
Who wants to give me my annual SF update?
reedo, read the toj thread. that's all the recap you need.
Then, to recover from the crushing depression you'll undoubtedly experience as a result of reading the TOJ thread, read the SF in Japan article series.
Thanks. Someone at tres bien got back to my email and said that they always ship CP (and I presume all their shoes) with the original box. They think Fedex fucked up and damaged the original shipping box plus the shoe box (luckily the shoes were not damaged) and moved them into a new shipping box. They offered to send me a CP shoe box but I don't know if I want them to waste money just to ship an empty box across the Atlantic. Pretty weird, though...
Not that wierd if you have worked with shipping companies enough times...
