    I actually thought last Monday was President's Day because nobody in the building got mail (and really, who pays attention when President's Day is). Nope, mailman is just a slack.

    walking into the prada store--honey im home

    wow, so much tech/nylon :drool:

    tried on this minimal leather with gunmetal riri m8 zips. 2900 :slayer:

    its funny that no one was in the prada store compared to gucci and lv.
    rft: does freida or marc design those corny tees that these high fashion houses sell?? i saw a gucci shirt that looked like a bandanna, it came in red and blue too. WHO ARE THEY DESIGNING FOR (well, i know the answer to this already)

    A Riri zip is like, $10.

    Prada makes a 3-pack of white v neck tees now, lol. It's like $150. Probably pretty nice, but no idea about fit.

    After having lurked SF for a while (and posting intermittently), and after embarking on a semester in Paris, my head is just kinda fucked with respect to my wardrobe. Like how do I wear my 3Sixteens in a less Americana way? It seems like (indigo) denim is waaay less prevalent here (in Paris), and also on SF, so I'm having trouble drawing on other people's images for inspiration. Does indigo denim not have so much a place in "European" style?

    Also (kinda related): turtlenecks. Not enough turtle? or not enough neck? Discuss. But more seriously though, what are your thoughts on turtlenecks? I'm thinking about putting together a turtleneck/blazer look, but I don't I figure that's a pretty easy thing to fuck up. And fuck up I do not want.

    I like turtlenecks because they can look really dorky or really sleazy.

    I could use the addition of a dorky/sleazy combination to my wardrobe.

    I've been thinking about this. I really like my White Mountaineering boots. I got them partly because they were like a caricature of the Vibram Christy-soled, moc-toe workboot that you see absolutely everywhere here. And they're like.. so ugly that they somehow look good (debatable I guess).

    Like at a quick glance, you know there is something weird going on. They're almost unsettling in a way.

    Maybe the most polarizing item of clothing I own, and honestly the only one that ever gets second glances from strangers, if only because people don't know what the fuck. oh wait and the fuzzy phillip lim pants, but whatever. I'm not interested in getting stares anyway so I think my style works out well.

    I prefer non-indigo denim. I only wear indigo denim to work (like today) because non-indigo (grey! black!) denim blows the minds of coworkers. It is just better not to go there.

    That doesn't answer your question, but it gave me the opportunity to discuss my favorite subject -->me<---

    That's what I'm thinking. Like, I want to put on something that looks kinda what-the-fuck-is-that-shit-but-whoa-why-is-it-so-fucking-cool à la your fits (but also with a nod to the hobo-style that shah pulls off so well), but I'm having trouble conceptualizing it.

    Because, for example, what do I wear up top to weird-out a pair of denim and GATs? I'm thinking something poncho-y, but I don't know what to cop where (especially at a decent price). Or something turtleneck-y—but that kind of demands a blazer, right? And with blue jeans... meh.

    And yeah, snowman, I would definitely like to see your fit, if only for inspiration (because I'll be honest here: I don't think I'm going to be able to afford what you wear—but still, it helps to get an image in my mind to figure out what I want to do. Y'know?)
