    I've been incorporating some military influences into my wardrobe recently, but I want to take it in a slightly different direction -- a little postapocalyptic, a little drapey -- basically Dune, or David Bowie on the cover of Low. What designers should I be looking at? Where else should I be looking for inspiration?

    Well I have been collecting the bones of my enemies for a while now, so I guess this would be one thing to do with them.

    I definitely agree that it's much more difficult to pull off a leather in a formal/casual look than in a strictly casual way. You've met me, and I'm sure you'd find it hard to imagine me doing formal casual, or modernist (a la Raf Simons, for example.) It's sort of like pulling off anything denim well in that formal/casual setting. The best of the second is the black denim Gucci sportscoat or the black denim biker jacket from Dior circa 2001. You really don't see it done well that often, though.

    The past decade, with all the fascination with casual clothing, has served me well. I suppose that if I need to bust out a sportscoat with the whole #menswear thing, that my Kin jacket in 18 ounce military barathea will have to do.

    A fucking bird just pooped on my new OCBD as I was walking home from the book store. I will be eating CAGE RAISED chicken tonight in retaliation.

    Don't worry guys, this is an MC troll, otherwise known as Reevolving. He has some great threads.

    Ummm, that looks pretty much exactly like the description. Not sure how you can't see that.

    friend of my gf was interested when i proxied as a favour for someone here, she was considering doing this for maybe a small fee if people were interested. lives in london but shes actually swedish, so easy to communicate with the tres bien /nitty gritty etc. she thought the person i proxied for was cute so could just be a way to meet men tho:foo:

    Is it just me, or are those long, floppy, shapeless, thin leather boots that I see women everywhere wearing the new UGGs?

    Do we need to send a head shot along with the proxy request?

    Late pass on the t-shirt talk, but do any brands out there other than Silent offer long, slim sleeves on their short-sleeve (preferably non-crew neck) shirts? It seems like most t-shirt sleeves don't even come close to mid-bicep on me.

    Wish it was easier to find Man of Moods t-shirts below retail.

    yeah they're everywhere, but on most girls they look wayyyy better than uggs. not nearly as offensive stylistically IMO.
