    I have an SCHA (smart people smart hats?) baseball cap coming from yoox. made from abaca and leather... [​IMG] Could be dope or shitty; we'll see. Also a Haute viscose/silk tee, hopefully an M works. I don't really have any cops planned atm, I have more or less everything I want aside from a few novelty suits (white cotton heyyyooo) and TOJ wintery items (shearling plz).

    golden goose is legit stuff, very underrated here. my wife has a leather jacket of theirs, among other things, that is laminated in some weird way. dope. I could see a lot of it working for you.

    They also have a casual line called gg750 (on yoox it's g750g for some reason) that has some nice tees/sweats/sweaters you could check out.

    yeah, i have gg750 button-up that i love. tried out some sweats once from yoox but they were waaaay to baggy for me.

    was kinda considering these, but they dont have they in my size anymore.

    It's full. [​IMG] Trying to convert the guest room though, here's a pic I posted last month of the shoe rack I bought/built from Ikea. The left side has two 43" long clothes rail. Still a lot of work to do to finish it up I've just been too busy to go back to Ikea.

    yeah the women's stuff seems to be more consistent size-wise; she's only gotten XS's whereas I've gone from an M to an XS in random things to get a good fit (this only applies to gg750, golden goose is very consistent, I'm a Small fwiw).

    I find that it really depends on the category. I'm a medium in most Golden Goose stuff, but a small in some of their sweats, for example. No experience with the GG750 brand. Maybe I should try some of their stuff. Golden Goose is terrific, but I think that it translates poorly on the internet, which is the reason it doesn't get that much play. It really is the fabric and details that make it. For their layered outerwear, you'd need about 20 shots to give people a good idea of what a specific piece is actually all about.

    Got these John Lobb William II's for a really good price on eBay. Unfortunately the seller didn't list the cracks/nicks in the leather. I doubt I could find them again for such a low price, so I'm torn between returning them or just wearing them as is. I just waxed & polished them after this photo so the marks are slightly more subtle but still apparent. Not sure what to do.

    If it were me, i'd get them filled/buffed as best possible, and dye to black. Cut your losses and wear them as black, find something else later to take that tan leather spot in your lineup.
