    I think we're agreeing here. You can go to The Kooples (gasp) and get a leather jacket for $1000 but it is not anything we at NoMan (or many here TBH) would consider as a good option. So, yes, the streets are filled with low-quality, lower-priced fast-fashion DRs, but that doesn't actually mean that there's plethora of options for those of us looking for the better products.

    American jackets typically have epaulets at the shoulder, and often, full belt. They also typically have the coin pocket in the front. English style jackets don;t typically have epaulets, nor the coin pocket, and in the case of Lewis leathers, often have side adjusters instead of a full belt. Of course, none of this is set in stone.

    Just get margiela grey sweat with elbow patches. Overpriced bullshit like every other designer sweat but the fit is nice (I have mustard yellow and navy and they get worn a lot). TBH My Uniqlo sweat is also nice.

    I bought uniqlo dry sweats and a hoodie for gym after my nike tech stuff started looking shitty, and honestly you're getting pretty much the same quality for quarter of the price

    I have the exact same request, but I want a chunky, shawl collar cardigan for ~300. I guess I could just get another 3A (is END the only stockist now?), but I was thinking of branching away from blue. RRL is always a possibility, though the budget is waaaayy off, and I'm never sure about embracing the southwestern thing. I guess Kanata is an option, too. What am I missing?

    Scott & Charters (or any of the various shops that sell S&C rebranded with their label)

    If you want a real workaday thing, just get a Pendleton: http://www.pendleton-usa.com/produc...AR-CARDIGAN/174935/sc/1727/c/2415/pc/1814.uts

    Foreign Rider Co - Canadian, minimal, after-surf beach type wear. I don't own any of their cotton stuff, but I lived in their merino wool tee shirt all summer.

    Seems a little cleaner/luxurious than my nefarious aims, from what I've seen? Which is mostly what's at your shop, and other people with the same stuff. Also, I thought S+C was notably pricier, no?
    what the fuck is this? who the fuck do you think i am?

    @Synthese

    The Armoury looks nice: https://thearmoury.com/catalogs/sho...-armoury-lambswool-shawl-collar-cardigan-navy

    I am sure @dieworkwear can provide more suggestions.

    I haven't seen a shawl collar from a SW&D designer brand lately, maybe I am not looking hard enough. I personally like what the CM side of brands have to offer in this specific category and as @gdl203 suggested. The S&C "Victoria" burgundy would suit a playboy like you I'd think.

    Edit:
    I thought Drakes would have a lower priced wool version but they only offer cashmere with one camel hair. Not a fan of that color personally for a shawl.


    The Eidos is cool but you should hunt for this:
    http://www.gentrynyc.com/products/horizontal-herringbone-long-cardigan?variant=19922572101

    Or even the Ajrak medallion cardigan

    They're finally showing on the qlo site, I had checked a couple weeks ago and nothing. Also popped into a store and they have 98 versions of 6 things for guys.
    That looks real good though I have a couple similar nike shirts like that and wanted something more loungey like real sweatshirts for post gym burger/fried chicken runs to fairfax.
    I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the button up stark facsimile by uniqlo u just for fucks and giggles.
    I like this don't know what synth is on.
    Thanks bruh I'll investigate.
