    viridi anne linen jacket [​IMG]
    Looks extremely similar to the Attachment black linen blazer I recently bought. I like since you can pair this with either gungy jeans or somewhat dressier pants (or even a t-shirt). I would like to find another blazer of this style in a different color. Any suggestions? Attachment had a khaki-gray one this season, but it sold out everywhere almost instantly.

    KVA has a linen blazer in grey minus the pockets, there is also a zip-closure version.

    wjk "extra heavy jersey" banana pants

    These have the same incredible heavy fabric on them as the wjk hoodie I recently bought. Feels like you're wearing an old fashioned heavy wool work pant. The more expensive wjk pieces have always blown me away with their quality more than any other brand and this piece is no exception.

    no offense BB1 but i just don't get the whole heavyweight jersey thing. Even if the quality is amazing, it's still just...jersey fabric. Wouldn't you rather have wool flannel or cashmere or something?

    Why, when those do not lend them selves to parity with other, unrelated products, as do wjk pieces.
    wjk ___(product name and style)___ These have the same incredible fabric on them as the ___(other wjk product)___ I recently bought. Feels like you're wearing an ___(unrelated piece of clothing on which more superlatives are heaped)___. The more expensive wjk pieces have always blown me away with their quality more than any other brand and this piece is no exception. ___(exhibit A)___ ___(exhibit B)___ ___(exhibit C)___
    Formulaic to the point that I'm wondering if you are in advertising for Japanese labels now ?? I was checking out a few racks of other Jp brands, attachman, IS, virdi, and they were a bit underwhelming considering their price points. Then again I'm not as intrigued by the aesthetic as other people though there are certain pieces I wouldn't mind owning. Also, did you get a new camera like you were planning ?

    I guess my other question would be why the infatuation with the washed out charcoal/gray colour?

    I just looked through a couple of WJK collections and it seems that he uses a bit of colour here and there, so it can't just be the designer thing.
