    Got a pair of rick sneaks for $100 with an absolutely destroyed sole - the heel was worn down to the leather and had holes through to the insole
    Repair cost more than the shoes but they look decent at least

    So where are you guys wearing your casual blazers, anyway? I must admit, I felt a little out of place at the local Best Buy today. And I keep seeing these documentaries set in London, these guys and their friends all walking around in tight casual blazers, and I think: Yes, now there is exactly what I need: friends.

    I think my desire for wearing any kind of casual balzer has pretty much disappeared. Chore coat and militaristic jackets all the way now [​IMG]. Although I'd still quite like a Barena. They almost look like cardigans anyway, right?


    Takuji not going to allow his bro Daiki to have a monopoly on long belted cardigan-bathrobe-jacket-thingys this season:

    I want everything that guy is wearing in the first photo. Too bad Ts(s) is too small for me.

    If you could find a 5 it would probably work out for you. When I first tried them on I thought I would be a 5 (I take a L in EG shirting and XL in EG outerwhere). Turns out the 4 was perfect for me.

    Nonetheless, Ts(s) is consistently getting better. My biggest gripe is how expensive it is in the US. Thankfully Yoox carries them.

    So does NMWA. Hopefully @gdl203 and @conceptual 4est have made some choice selections.

    Barena blazer is definitely like a cardigan. In fact most of them are actually knits.
    The new season fabrics and prints look like they'd fit with your EG stuff really well.

    Oddly I'm headed in the opposite direction. And it's really hard to find a (good looking) structured blazer.

    Saw on The Bureau's facebook page that Ts(s) is returning to their line-up this season. Nice to have a UK stockist again even if prices will no doubt be eye watering.

    Geller is a new one for you guys right? I'm excited to see it. Knit-robe-things are my downfall. I already own 2 and I'm already plotting on copping the EG one from this season. (Although I think I might sell my nonnative one and finally accept the fact that I will never lose the weight required to fit it)

    I have a PRL knit blazery thing but because i'm short it ends up getting super robe-y.

    Yup, new for the fall. We're excited to have the label since we're both fans of it, and as you all know Robbie is a great guy. It's also nice to have a local NYC brand in the mix. We'll have a good mix of some of the favorites as well as more interesting pieces that caught my (mine?) and Greg's eyes, like the aforementioned robe which is in a Prince of Wales check IIRC. Can be seen a little bit layered under some other jackets here:

    his hair is so much better than mine.......also he's taller and like 15 pounds lighter LOL i'm a fattie OTL

    (but yes, mine is the charcoal version of that exact same suit)

    the stretch wool is a bit disappointing. i prefer drier, crunchier fabrics that give better stacks.
