    Fok,
    I just find Yoox too overwhelming to even begin digging through--but I can tell there is good stuff buried somewhere. It would be awesome if you shared some of your strategy or tips for digging there.

    Gilt on rare occasion has good stuff, but rummaging through Yoox stock is tedious.
    You're a NYC'er, aren't you? Or at least, have taken residency there at one time? Let's not forget that for most of us, trying on anything of better quality than J.Crew requires a stop over at Expedia.com first.
    So true. I'd love to visit NYC this summer and check out all the shops.

    I find Yoox ridiculously fun. It's not so much like Costco (which has tons of the same stuff) as like rummaging through an enormous Century 21. If you are a sportshopper, it should be your playground (and I am a sport shopper.) I reminds me of hunting out vintage pieces. You really have to know your craft, or the good stuff will slip through your hands while you are paying a premium for a pair of Margiela sneakers or something equally common and lame.

    +1--you know that one runway item that looks cool but you could never see yourself paying $1000 for since it looks so ridiculous and situational? love finding that on yoox for $100 during final sale

    That's what I'm doing this summer (NOTE: I am not just going to NYC in order to shop, that would be lame).

    On a different note, here's some random thoughts:
    -The color palette that Bailey used for Burberry Prorsum FW 2006 was awesome. I wish more people would use purples and blues and such like that.
    -Does anyone have any experience with either Simon Spurr or Lad Musician? Any thoughts or feelings or comments on either brand?
    -Someone help me, but I really think that the Versace FW 2011 runway was pretty great. Love all the different textures and patterns - it had a great tactility to it. There's a few clunkers, but the good was really good, I thought.

    It's best if you browse through your favourite designers in full and then the next day start sorting out merchandise by latest arrivals. That should help organize stuff IME

    Not really a fashion thought but this is the feeling I get while lurking the buy/sell/supermarket forums

    I think 80% or so of my wardrobe is either Gilt/ebay/B&S forum stuff...

    I want to buy black jeans, and am annoyingly torn between DRKSHDW, black overdye petit standards, black Ande Whalls, or some SelfEdge-ish elaborate overdye thing.

    Some aesthetic consistency in the things I want would be convenient. Not sure if that's a common experience or not.

    Acne's black overdyed jeans (hex and cash at least) aren't much better than what you'd find at H&M. They're just too thin, and it isn't very flattering, for me anyway (I own at least 6 pair of Acne jeans and I've got a lot of love for the cuts in general fwiw). I'm looking for another pair of black overdyed jeans myself and so far it's looking like I'll go with Iron Heart. The options for overdyed, substantial denim are fairly limited. If you like the KMW 1980 cut, there's some at Blue Owl worth checking out. I'm waiting to hear back from Blake about some RRL Slim Fit ODs (whether they make them in that cut or not).
