    It seems to be a Chinese fake of a Korean-manufactured card phone. There are a lot for sale on eBay.

    Recently got a pair of Japan Blue Hi-Taper denim. They have more space in the thighs and seats for people with booty, but still has a decent taper to a smaller leg opening. I'll probably hem and taper a bit cause i'm a douche.

    I decided to take the year off fashion until I figured out my place in capitalism. But that's not happening anytime soon so I adjusted it to a ~$100 limit. And that means Yooxing it up. A couple cheapo hits lately:

    [​IMG]
    Reveres 1949

    Pretty cool blazer for US $48. All Prices are 90% higher for Canadians but even then it's still cheap. Has a cool flecked pattern in the fabric. Terrible, terrible buttons. I took off the stupid metal button that frayed the button hole after two uses and replaced it with the one below it but it didn't come with a spare so it's a one button blazer right now.


    [​IMG]
    Obvious Basic

    Never heard of the brand. Pretty terrible fit; slim in the arms and baggy in the waist but cool print and it's just for wearing around the apartment.

    N.D.C. Made by Hand

    Couldn't resist at US $65. I already use a pair of boots by these guys as my motorcycle boots and they've lasted a year and a half with no issues at all. Fantastic build quality. These ones look better than the photo, luckily. Goodyear welted through the lug sole, which I appreciate.

    Yoox roulette is a fun time, I say. Their photos are so bad that everything is a least sort of a gamble but I've gotten tons of cool stuff from brands I never would have heard of otherwise. I've gotten tons of crap, too. But I'm getting better at returning stuff these days.

    Life is good, folks.

    after a meandre around soho spotted the apc ov stuff, loved the fabric of these shorts, need more gym/running shorts

    [​IMG]

    that gave me the impetus to pay the mr porter delivery, so been craving this, again the fabric coarsnes of a brushed oxford appealed

    [​IMG]

    i tried on their brushed flannel shirt in liberties and might fall back onto that one if this does not appeal

    and seeing as i've paid for delivery now i have taken a punt on
    [​IMG]

    I expect to return this one, I'm 43, a hoody...hmmmm, but again the patina on the fabric called out to me

    but have already decided on the replacement (non hoody) if I return it, arrives today whoop whoop

    Shorts look great, I feel you should keep this hoody too.

    Keep it or not, but don't return it because of your age. It's a hoody, not skinny jeans.
