    To play devils advocate, hasn't "white guys conspicuously into hip hop" been a thing for awhile now? I mean back in my Catholic school in the 90s where you were pretty much socially pigenholed by musical taste a lot of otherwise clean cut dudes were bumpin Goodie Mob, Snoop, etc. I don't mean white guys who culturally identify with hip hop in general, more frat guys who can recite Pharcyde lyrics. It does seem extra present in the #menswear tumblrscene, just sayin

    I came here because I was interested in raw denim (and sufu didn't seem to work at the time). Not that I've come very far since then. :embar:
    I hate zip fly jeans so much. I'm constantly afraid of accidentally leaving them unzipped. (0)

    Does anyone here have experience over-dying? I have a pair of black jeans with a white weft that I wanted to over-dye, and now I see that there is a small bleach spot on them as well ... will over-dyeing cover it?

    its likely it will but i would neutralize the bleach stain first ... that stuff is so bad for garments and then spot dye the bleach stain to see if it works first. but thats just me.

    believe count kunkula has gone through the procedure though not himself if I recall correctly (had a stone island project sent somewhere)

    Yeah, the plan is to neutralize it with alcohol, cover it with some kind of marker (fabric or otherwise) and then overdye the whole garment.

    Reading this always irritates me for some reason..

    "I'm just trying to get back what I paid."

    anyone know any wooyoungmi stockists? I know there's a store in chelsea that carries the line, I walked in there bored on a lunch break one day over the summer and was excited to see it for the first time. Forget the name of the though...

    Maybe, if you bought it several seasons ago or something. I don't see anything wrong, though, with stating you're trying to recoup your funds on a recent purchase that didn't work out, especially if you bought it from the B&S forum.

    Agreed. I think it emphasizes that the seller isn't trying to flip something for a profit, and an item should ostensibly retain its value as it passes through an additional set of hands provided its condition doesn't deteriorate (e.g., buyer receives item, tries it on, realizes it doesn't fit, posts on B&S).

    Also, @ Unc, those boots look difficult. Like, pony hair DBSS hi-tops-level difficult.
