    Don't do it. Febreeze smells disgusting, and it won't actually get the smell out, just cover it up with another foul smell.

    If your jeans are dirty, just wash them.

    How could you not love those pants. I already have streetsyle shots built up in my mind revolving around those bottoms them.

    Jumping in here a little late, but I'm definitely with you on this. Most button downs seem designed to basically work as a neutral base layer. You put something interesting over them, like a jacket or whatever, but the shirt itself is fairly boring. Lately I've been looking to find shirts that are interesting in themselves. Schneider certainly seems like a good place to look.

    if you look in the right places there are so many shirts that are fun to wear and not at all boring. yohji has billowing ones with sometimes abstract designs in a little corner, jil had floral shirts, dries has loud paint splatters, viridi-anne (i think, the one snake has) has something crazy going on with the textures, nicolo cesci and damir have longer shirts that are cut nicely (tho NCB flares out a bit which not all may like), frank leder has great thicker fabric ones, i've probably missed so much, but you get the point. it depends in what way you define boring and what aspect of a shirt you think counters that property.

    only shirts I fuck with that are not straight oxford must have some wild prints/patterns on them. Love the way they look under a suit jacket or popping out from a sweater. Wouldn't wear them alone.

    eh that is a little bull. I also would wear tees alone.

    I also have floral and lace shirts.

    They certainly are around. The challenge for me is finding ones that fit my style. The Jil and Dries you mentioned are too much for me. I like the Schneider palette, which is why I mentioned him. Occasionally I'll find something from Paul Smith that works as well. The other problem is budget. Bottega Veneta has some beautiful shirts, for instance, but they're very expensive. So I'm looking for shirts that are the right combination of design and price.

    Somebody bought the xs red bavarian wool blazer from SW! Was really hoping I could buy that.

    Perhaps I'll buy a hardnen blazer next season instead.

    These are diametrically opposed! But I know what I would do. Sorry, Desi, but Topman isn't for me. Though I'm not sure Leder is either. I find his refined Teutonic peasant aesthetic appealing on others, but it's not what I want for myself. I think I'll teach myself to sew and make my own clothing from now on. It should only be a few years before I'm capable enough to actually make something wearable. (Would never do this, of course, but sometimes I'm very tempted...)

    Um, we should. I have no idea how much people would post in it, but I would check it out all the time.
