    The big thing about Americana is that it was easy and it fit a wide variety of body types. There'll be a lot of stuff that's randomly embraced but none of it is going to crystallize nearly as intensely. You'll probably see random dudes walking around with flannel/denim/boots for a while.

    Fashion Kids will follow whatever gothninja/opening ceremony/sprez/"designer" look that's hyped up on tumblr but "simple, well fitting basics" won't become passe because it's so stylistically neutral.

    Also, for the people who don't really "care" that shit moves fucking slow--you can still dress like a Hedi Slimane skinny rockstar and look quote-unquote "fashionable" to your random person even though that shit's like, 5-8 years old.

    At least, IMO.

    +1. Would rather take a hit on return shipping than miss out!


    And does anyone know what shipping service ln-cc uses for the US? Haven't ordered from them in forever. Not sure where to plug in that tracking #

    Ehhh it wasn't really that sort of a deal, it was an informal one with a friend. I'm not too stressed, I didn't pay full price

    Ohhhh u fancy huh

    I got the wool big check shirt (red/charcoal/white), the beige spear stratum cardigan, and the red/gray ring yarn wool vest (which is the standout piece for sure). They'd be ideal for a 40-42 chest, although really slim on a 42. I really wish the vest was smaller, I'm so damn sad

    No it is not. In good news tho, I took the pants back to my tailor today and he's doing a rush job to fix before 5 tonight, free of charge. VICTORY!

    You could always improve my week by selling me a Schneider scarf.... :smarmy:

    Does anyone know what this model of CPs is known as? I got mine in the mail today in the steel gray color and sized the same as my Achilles. They are really tight, despite what I read about sizing the same across different CP models (excluding their DBs).
