    Other thought: I wore a Rick Owens double-layered longsleeve to run some errands today and it was rainy. The water and overall humidity was absorbed by the tee and it sorta untwisted itself and became a dress within 5 minutes. I looked like a stupid gaylord.

    Man what a joke. Is there a way to re-twist?

    i like overpriced basics by mmm and dries that could easily be mistaken for h&m by the uninitiated. i like brands that are not easily recognized by anyone but the wearer.

    You like it the stealth wealth ?

    thanks

    Haha, of course. It's just cotton and not really twisted, you just let it dry, throw in dryer if you want it to shrink and when it is moisture free it is easily twistable.

    I thought he had been progressively retiring for years? Anyway doesn't matter, I liked the last two collections and it's not complex like the woman's stuff so I don't foresee them totally fucking it up before a few seasons.

    BOO did a badass super thick wool pair for this season. Probably a little on the heavy side for loungewear but they looked real cool. Didn't try them on though.

    MMM is less logo'd Moschino
    It's too literal now with the references and it's too in your face vs. being subtle

    +1 on Canada sucking ass for fashion. I live within 2 hours of Toronto, so I can find some SF-approved stuff but paying retail price in CDN is comparable to getting kicked in the sack.
    Thank God for Roden Gray. Honestly there aren't that many cities in the US that have a store that good. TO has Nomad. If you compare where you live to NYC you're obviously going to be disappointed, but if that's the case then fucking move there.

    Scraggly dudes wearing white 70s Vegas getup? I dig it. But yeah, the anniversary collection with the disco balls was sorta hardcore on the nighlife references. I'm still thinking about the disco-lapel jacket.

    Next spring is terrible, renzo will undoubtedly utilize lots of archived pieces for lack of design talent.

    It wouldn't be so bad if you could order from the US online and not be hit by the exchange rate, shipping, and customs.

    Personally, I'd love to shop more from SF affiliates but these factors add up and they make sale items barely worth buying.. especially when you don't have cash to burn

    I concede though that the Canadian Dollar has been getting stronger recently.

    Don't you have a couple of brands that you feel are "favourites" by now and have felt so for a while? Maybe it's best to only purchase from those if you often experience that kind of remorse. I do know there are some mid-range and mall brands that feel that way to me so it's not even about high end. I never regret buying a new Uniqlo white tee, I get exactly what I want and merely feel I need to replace them when they're worn out.


    My fashion thought: I keep having these slight change of direction every couple of months or so. By now they don't really detract from the overall direction of my wardrobe but give it more depth, or so I like to think. I had a suiting phase where I got a couple of TB and shirts. Also sold a bunch of shoes and got more elegant/menswear ones.

    Nowadays:
    - I'm really feeling white garments (shoes, jackets, shirts)
    - I wear more light sweaters than I used to (not big on sweaters, prefer tee+jacket)
    - I tend to be more casual and hardly wear suits
    - I added some colours
    - I need some "fun" designers like De Castelbajac and wear more Junya/CdG.

    Next phase will probably be a return to suiting and dress shoes.


    I do have "favorites" the problem is that I tend to jump onto the lesser known American or Japanese designers and end up paying $400-500 at full retail for something, when I could get something really amazing at that same price if I just bought it from the B&S forum or Supermarket or something. I have some Juun J stuff + a raf sweater I bought at full retail that I know I'll love for a long time... but it's never fun if you're wearing the same shit every day, even when that shit is really nice.

    I'm more and more getting into suits and dress shoes, myself.

    I need to get some fancy knits and some good trousers and everything will be on a much higher level.
