    One from Weekday and two from H&M Trend

    Would recommend keeping an eye out for H&M Trend, in Sweden you can find a bunch on tradera (swedish ebay) and blocket (swedish craigslist) but the retail pricing is totally reasonable imo.
    Leather, fit, design and construction are all very solid for the price and I'm pretty happy with the two jackets I have
    (got a shacket from the same line that's one of my most used layering-pieces when the temperature starts to drop)

    Someone recently posted a store that had a house brand of black derbies. Around $200-300. Not centre commercial. Anyone know what I'm referring to? Sorry I can't think of more detail, but I seem to remember the shop being European

    Yes! Anyone have any info on quality with these, particularly whether they start looking like total shit after a few wears?

    Those look like they're made from corrected grain leather. I wouldn't say they'd look like shift after a few wears, but they won't age as well as full grain.

    The upside to corrected grain is that you get that high shine/ somewhat plastic-y look, which suits SWD fits better than CM. I wore a pair of Marigela boots today, actually, made from corrected grain. Not the worse thing in the world, but I prefer the natural look of full grain.

    This might be a good option even though they're navy. http://debonnefacture.fr/en/trousers/188-carrot-trousers.html

    Thanks for the rec!


    @gdl203 you're sold out in size 4 [​IMG]

    I had my eye on them earlier in the season. Do they have a bit of green in them? I have a pair of Lemaire pants in a grey/green that clashed with the coat imo, so was worried about the Peel trousers being the same thing.

    Those De Bonne Facture ones look pretty nice (so do the herringbone drawstring pants, for that matter). Does anybody have a pair? I'm curious how the carrot shape works with such a low rise if you aren't already skinny.

    Maybe these? Unfortunately for you I snagged the last pair of size IV, but maybe you can find another stockist.

    What is going on with this Vetements jacket on Mr.Porter? It doesn't say anything about a removable panel, zip-off coattails, etc., but the worn view looks awfully different from the product shot. (There is a telltale seam bulge running around the waist, but I still see no method nor location for detaching the bottom section)

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    and while I'm asking MrP questions, is this Berluti wool sweater actually [supposed to cost] nine thousand dollars? It's sold out in all sizes but one, or does that mean they only stocked one item in one size for this singular piece of history? If there were something special about the sweater to justify such a price (woven by the last child of the remote Hakuna Matata tribe, before he died of culture shock...), shouldn't that be mentioned in the description? It's not even cashmere, let alone vicuna.

    Just some wack styling with the right panel folding up inside, coat is vented so it's doable I guess


    But $4000 ? Fucking hell

    But it's got that cool little "B" sewn in the bottom. Those "in the know" will have great respect for your impeccable taste.

    edit: make that "impeccable investment". Everyone knows that "fine wool sweaters" made in an "ageless hue" appreciate at at least 18% per annum.

    Got some Issey drawstring trousers with light taper recently, was cheaper then the comme i could find at the time but fabric was a light cotton linen wash. Yohji does a ton as well, pics would help of some you like since comme does a ton. I think our legacy and acne also have slimmer wool drawstring trouser out.
