    once i put anything on, no matter how much significance it had to me prior to owning it, this feeling always slowly dissipates. I think someone (forgot who) once said it best that buying the item is where the most satisfaction is derived.

    Is there a specific piece that let you down more than usual, or just generally? I've been thinking about the same Cameraman you have for probably close to two years now, and still have not pulled the trigger. Probably wouldn't fit anyway, I'm ill-proportioned (sup hendrix).

    The satisfaction lies in the chase?

    Sure. I mean, honestly, the best way to describe many of us is "fashion junkie", not fan, junkie. I suppose that in MC, most guys would rather cop to being "style" junkies.

    This is not true. Couture is couture, period. Chanel is the mother of modern couture, some of Chanel's earliest clients had figures of Rubens women, hence modern couture has nothing to do with working out.



    This is an example of the Hail Eason which made me think eason was a god in the forum.



    The thrill of the chase. But once picked, even the most forbidden fruit loses its sweetness.

    I don't know, there are tons of things I wasn't excited at all about when I bought them but I know I couldn't live without now.

    Even something as simple as a grey James Perse tee I have. Bought it on a whim since for a while there I couldn't help but pick up grey tees if they were a good price or looked good, but now when I wear it I seriously feel like I can take on the world. I thoughf the laundromat lost it on me last week and I was totally devastated, and the feeling of relief I had when I got it back was unbelievable. All this over probably the most basic piece of clothing in my closet.

    I get that some stuff is more fun to chase down, especially things like "grails" but it also seems to be a common sentiment to also want to just "live" in your clothes and get some enjoyment out of what you actually did buy.

    I guess it's split for me - I didn't wear my reversible blazer as much as I thought, but I love my screen printed jeans and would never consider selling those. I have every intention of running them into the ground.

    yeah I know, about 3X what he normally clocks in at. It's that Guidi calf that they're pretty proud of I guess. It's completely unlike what people are probably imagining 'Guidi calf' to look like though, you wouldn't even know.

    Ya'll getting Kevin Spacey in here.

    It's not the "It" you want, it's the fantasy of "it".
