    Should I buy birk bostons? Is this even a question I should be asking? Do I even fashion anymore? It was sunny and nice today (like 68 deg) but I felt tired and stayed inside. Maybe buying spring things will make me go outside? It's supposed to rain all week. Back to wearing wal mart cargo pants and my Dana Lee shit since I can just get that muddy as hell and toss it in the wash and dryer.

    But do I buy birks?

    People are obsessed with Vetements. I've liked what they've done in the past but this recent collection just seems like what a soccer mom thinks hipsters dress like.

    Do the Louis W jackets fit any better than the standard APC or is it exactly the same?

    That beige suede bomber is pretty perfect even though $1300 is a kick in the nuts.

    I wonder if that's something Luxire could do better/cheaper...

    This is more or less every foreign BU student's uniform. Mix in some Been Trill and Diesel as you see fit.

    Yes, yes you do.

    Gtrans you could always look at those Aurora clogs people were discussing in the EG thread instead of bostons.

    Baller clogs are the new baller sneaker, I want a pair and a visvim noragi for maximum Japanese farmer swag

    for Birks, i def prefer non clog sandals, alá Arizona, to Bostons after wearing both for many years. The former are just more comfortable imo (easier to get a good fit with two adjustable straps), and imo looks better.

    as a survivor of visvim 2012 I'm gonna say this: no matter what size you get, it won't fit.

    I do have very skinny arms which I understand is a requirement? I like the longer length vs lhamo. I've been tempted to get a Cosmic Wonder piece, maybe I'll do that instead to fill a similar niche.

    personal opinion is that the noragi really doesn't work outside of Vis lookbooks and select FIL employees; just look at the Vis threads on SuFu over the last few years and how many noragis made it to market

    the lhamo, if you remove the ties, wears more like a thin cardigan, but you're right that the length can be problematic

    go for a 3 if you're skinny and wear a medium in EG

    best of luck

    @Lorcan7 could easily pass off for a dude in a vis lookbook though.

    Having occasionally delved into old sufu Vis threads, I get the impression people bought noragis thinking they can layer them under and over stuff easily, but they are too tight in the arm to go over a jacket and wrong length to be versatile as a mid-layer (like lhamos are). But if I only actually want it to go over a t-shirt from the outset, then I don't see so much of a problem. Medium in EG is too roomy on me these days, which is why I'm selling stuff.

    There are actually some decent noragi fits in the Epaulet thread. Theirs is a little easier to wear, though; it's got full-length sleeves and a hidden button IIRC, so people tend to rock it as a mid-layer or light jacket.

    sorry the Epaulet one is really really dorky, even more so than the vis one. it's got like, buttoned cuffs like a shirt or something I can't even remember since I had deliberately erased it from my mind

    I haven't looked in their thread specifically but outside of that I had not seen one where the person wearing it didn't look like a TurdLord. sorry guys

    Didn't realize there were buttoned sleeve cuffs. That's kinda getting into weird hybrid territory.

    That aside, I think this looks decent, and it'd probably look even better with some wear.
