I can't believe I'm saying this, but "those Aldos look pretty good to me."
edit: I'm still saving up and buying Tricker's instead.
This is depressing to read, but most likely correct. I mean, what should I get though?
Aldos will fall apart after a few wears, realtalk. Don't do it.
I'd say go to a boutique that carries decent brands or a Barney's or something and have the SA fit you with a few different jackets. Figure out what fits you, what you actually like, and don't buckle to the pressure to buy something if you're not completely sure.
Eh, it looks like Aldo didn't actually make these, they're just selling them under their label. At the same time, I'd rather not buy these knowing I could easily get something much better for a little more money.
Unlike lots of people here, I don't think Rag & Bone is that bad of a deal at retail*, unlike say Theory whose stitching actually does fall out over time. Some of it may be produced in China, but the finishing and fabric are still quite nice. I'd do what Notwithit said and try that ish on.
*edit: the blazers, not the $400 MIC cotton sweaters hehe
I’ve been in the US for a few weeks and thus have access to limited wardrobe. Things are quite nice that way.

^ I like the packing list, might use that as a guide for when I pack.
edit- gotten any reactions with that wm cape?
I'm actually interested in what you're wearing with the EG bedford, fuuma. The moleskin pants? What kind of grey are they, and are they current season?
I enjoyed the high-fashion clothing plus bespoke/Eastern European shoe phase quite a bit, as well as the dandified Cloak/CCP looks - and especially the rumpled professor PH get-up. Really, I ought to just say that Baudelaire was (is?) my satori, and I've never moved much past that. Not that I can speak for you, of course.
Syn, shoot me back a pm when you get a chance
The lack of spacing betwwen shoes/tops confused me for a minute there haha.
got any pics of the cape?
got hit by a car on my bike today. bike is destroyed. 5g down the hole. sweet.
I too got hit by a car on my bike today. Though it was an 800 dollar bike I've had since high school. Still dealing with getting it fixed is going to be such a pain.
