    It depends... :)

    For the past few weeks the South East of the UK has been unseasonably mild - around 48-55 Farenheit (8-13c), so mild that Daffodils that shouldn't be flowering until March are out in places. That sort of temperature looks like holding for a while.

    Typically January is more like 42-46F, but you can get cold snaps... :) Where it can be around freezing.

    Ordered two John Elliott tees, took them 10 days to ship them out, $35 in shipping, $20 in customs fees, but damn, these tees are perfect. I like my shirts with a tight neck and a little extra length - the Classic Crew is a good cut. The texture on the Co-Mix fabric has a wonderful texture and I hope the 28% polyester helps it keep its shape. These might replace AA tri-blends as my favorite non-cotton shirt - we'll have to see how they hold up in the wash cycle

    Really happy with these and the James Perse ones I picked up as well. Man, I love black t-shirts

    does John Elliott have oversized tees? been looking for t-shirts with dropped shoulder, slightly longer (and oversized?) body, possibly heavier/ more structured material

    Did the collab feature any slip-ons?

    I don't see H&M stamped on the insole and I wouldn't expect H&M shoes to look that decent; what makes you think they are from the H&M collection?

    They look like the loafers from the H&M collection. You wouldn't be able to see the H&M logo on the insole in the Yoox pics anyway.

    FWIW I'm not interested in buying these - they're not even my size - I just found the thought of Yoox reselling ebay flipper markups amusing.

    If you had to choose only one brand for your entire wardrobe, what would it be and why.

    It would be tricky as I frequently wear suits at work - there aren't many brands that stretch far enough into the formal and casual. At a pinch I suppose Engineered Garments would do.

    that's a tough one, and an interesting question. It may be Dries or Yohji for me. It would have to be a brand that had the full spectrum of clothes, accessories and footwear. maybe gym stuff too, like Y-3. and also have casual and formal options.
