    I like Raeburn, the recycling military fabrics thing appeals to my interests

    He kind of doesn't fit into a convenient category though- bit tech-y but not really in the way that appeals to dudes who like acronym or veilance, bit of heritage/military inspiration mixed in but none of the heritage dudes on here really go for him, does runway shows but isn't really high fashion. Prices aren't cheap. I've generally liked what I've seen in person, the paint splat-ish camo parkas from this season are really cool.

    I like Raeburn's bombers and other pieces of outer wear with a kinda marbled effect on em. (neighbour stocks them). Think it's maybe last season iirc?

    Anybody know where to see ALL the latest SS15 shows? Style.com, is letting me down.

    I think most of the looks in that hackerman collection are pretty gross. there are some nice things but mostly it's like hackeramn for russel brand / johnny depp

    but that is a shirt though (or kimono or at least something with sleeves on it)

    and i've tried the scarf instead of shirt a couple times now, have to admit I like it, and although I could never go sockless, or wear shorts, I wonder if you have anymore tips since this summer looks like its gonna be a scorcher down here

    i didn't love fw14 at first but it really grew on me. now i really like it. the boots are kinda hilarious. can't wait to see the pieces in stores though. i really want to see what the construction is like.

    i've learned at this point not to even wish for a return to old school raf. those days are gone. the new raf is good in its own way.

    Ha I did not even notice the sleeves. One would think Margiela would help me out here and make a deep V scarf shirt

    This is pretty much my summer aka all year tips

    - Throw away anything that comes between you and your wears.....everything...put that money towards more wears
    - No shorts. My official pair of shorts are white Orlebar Brown Setters
    - Wear nothing but Viscose/Virgin Wool/Silk pants. This goes back to my first point, juts feels niiiice
    - Light and thin (almost see through) knits
    - Keep it simple

    This is easier said then done some of you guys don't benefit from the "tropical breezes" and having a tolerance for heat helps.....and of course not convulsing and breaking out with heat rash at the first sign of 90+ weather...looking at you LAguy

    Man, as far as pants surprisingly linen doesn't do it for me. A couple hours with it on and it looks like I took the pants crunched them up in my hands and put them back on again. My last pair or linen pants were purple label RL's so its been a while

    Yeah you have to be cool with the crumpled/wrinkled aesthetic if you like linen :) There's something very summery about a light colored linen piece and its rumpled characteristic for me, but I can see how it wouldn't really mesh with your style.

    Linen-fanatic myself. But I like Paul Harnden's stuff and he goes out of his way to crumple shit. Wouldn't be very hobo chimney-sweep without it and that's pretty different from tropics-life style ;p
