    my favorite trousers I have right now are from epaulet and they're pretty damn baggy on me, love it.

    I frikken love these things, though they're not that baggy on me.

    Gotta remove the belt loops though. I hate belt loops.

    Guidi boots are here. They fit. Tight, but they fit. And they feel like they'll stretch, too. Awesome boots. Much darker brown than the pics originally suggested, almost indistinguishable from black unless in sunlight.

    If you're bored with an entire article of clothing, your aesthetic is making it boring. Not an attack, just the indisputable, absolute, incontrovertible, undeniable truth. 100%. Super serial. Thuper. Therial. Dude. Ervell made mad print shirts this year. Dries did an amazing paint splatter print this year and has done a placket that twisted around the back (might've been a cardigan, though). Taralis and Raf both do futurist panel shirts on the regular. Geller has done band collar, pin collar, ribbed cuff+hem, shoulder pleating, fencing placket, dip dye, to name a few. Thom Browne has that classy ass grosgrain trim. Uniqlo does 30924809324 plaids. Oh God, Ann D does drawstring, bloused, assymmetric, tie dyed, insane buttoning. I've seen like 3 different versions of metal blend shirts that cause the fabric to twist and shink/stretch. So why is your aesthetic making shirts boring?
    Doing one weird thing to a shirt doesn't all of a sudden make it interesting. Very rarely does a shirt actually catch my eye. Dries paint shirt is awesome, twisted placket looks dumb, asymmetric looks really dumb, and I can go on and on. Most of these tiny little details don't really add anything more than "oh that's neat". I buy a lot of prints, have different fabrics, hidden plackets, etc but ultimately to me if it ever boils down to "I can buy a few shirts or buy this fucking awesome leather or these high tops or boots blahblahblah", it will never be the shirts. You're right though, my aesthetic makes it boring. I'm perfectly fine with a solid oxford, cause if your shoes and your jacket look good, it doesn't matter what shirt it is.

    pics?
    Waiting for my new battery and charger for my camera to come in the mail.

    Got my 2010 DR, and it actually fits quite well - as intended in the design anyway, so a little short for my usual tastes but that's what it's meant to look like and I knew that when I bought it. So that's good. The materials and construction seem to live up to all the hype.

    One thing I wasn't aware of though, is that the "blacked out" apples to all hardware EXCEPT the snaps for buttoning down the collar, underneath. So it looks pretty weird to wear the collar up as there are 4 suddenly very noticeable metallic nipples sitting there.

    Hence, the following question: what should I do in order to make my blacked out DR fully blacked out? Only thing I can think to use is nail polish, which will probably come off if I actually use the snaps to snap the collar down ever.

    As posted in TOJ thread, same kinda thing I was dealing with with my SNS knit which I haven't done yet.

    To the extent it is "back," it seems more like a drapey look than a 1992 relaxed fit, which people should still hate.

    Why do some people insist on obscuring their photos on this site? All the silly facial overlays distract from the fits!

    i do it because i've seen people link to 4chan posts where they post pics from WAYWT, and i'd rather not have pictures of my face on 4chan in other news, i just found out that i'm getting back the equivalent of about $1000 back from the taxman because apparently i was on some emergency tax code most of the year. spend it all on one thing y/n
