    I've never gotten Devoa. It almost never looks good worn, and the pieces I've handled/tried on haven't blown me away. The fabrics are in the vein of all the artisan brands, and the anatomic seaming doesn't seem any more special than the shifted armhole on my luxire shirts.

    Also high rise pants are the best.

    if you're gonna buy aldens, buy alden seconds from theshoemart. most of the seconds have only cosmetic imperfections that will become invisible with wear.

    Ugh, same here. Currently waiting for the "21 day pending period" to end on two items I just sold. What a bunch of non-sense.

    i'll have to check that out! actually planning to cop in the spring when i get my tax return. will be able to wear to my real job starting in the summer, so a smart purchase imo.

    also, brought my walk overs to a cobbler today, finally getting them fixed after the last cobbler removed the mid sole. $70 down the drain. probably not worth it for $200 shoes or whatever, but I don't like wasting shit and the uppers definitely have life in them still.

    i bought a pair of walk overs for $100 off yoox but hated the profile. way too blobby. if you want a replacement, there's a bunch of cheap pairs up now.

    yeah, i know i could get a replacement cheap (actually almost copped a pair of mcnairy's off sufu) but it seems silly to "waste" these when the uppers are fine. i have no problem with the profile but can totally understand why it would be off putting. i wore them all the time before the botch job of a resole.

    Thanks for the tip, but I work from home most of the time and I don't really go out to eat all that often. :confused:

    I still have yet to touch a Devoa garment. There don't seem to be any stockists on the east coast, though

    It's almost as if we're posting in a thread where we all volunteer opinions on random fashion topics.

    Eh, Devoa isn't about blowing you away. It's all about attention to detail; patternmaking and farbric selection. It's not really a stretch for the fabrics to be reminiscent of other artisanal brands is it? Daisuke has always focused on organic textiles and fabric treatments. That may not be too appealing.

    But their anatomic tailoring is lacklustre? Surely you're joking.

    Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck

    So last night I totalled my girlfriends car. I'm 99% sure my insurance won't cover it and I'm praying her insurance covers the car and not just her driving it.

    If it doesn't I'm seriously fucked. I only have a little over 5k saved up and I'm guessing the damage to the other persons car and the kbb value of my girlfriends car (2008 hounding sonata) is gonna be around 25k.

    If her insurance doesn't cover it I will have to sell my car and some of my clothes. Most likely gonna have to part with my toj1 and a2. I also had one on the way I might ask Charlie if I can cancel my order if it hasn't been made yet.

    Before people ask why I was driving her car, we were on a weekend trip going biking. Her car has a bike rack mine doesn't. And she asked me to drive her car.

    Moral of the story people is don't drive others cars. I've done this for years without ever getting in an accident. Last night my luck ended and now I'm fucked.
