    The next big purchase on my list is always a pair of lace up boots, but year after year I buy another pair of side zips...

    Been wanting these Acne derbies for over a year, when they suddenly pop up in good condition for less than 10% of the retail price and in my size :slayer:

    Red Wing x Cabourn

    Found a brand new one in my size in Japan, been wanting a pair for a while. Got them for pretty cheap too, and it's funny how you just slap a name that I like as a collabo and boom I'm on board

    Thanks for the heads up. The hoodie has since been washed and it certainly isn't as blue as it used to be. Thankfully, I prepared myself for that.

    Well, I finally received this a while back.

    Forme D'Expression SS17 Forest print dress shirt.JPG

    The one I have looks a little different from the above picture.

    This was a gutsy and somewhat irrational purchase at the time but I love the print. Not the most practical thing to wear out and about and I'm still thinking of what I should wear it with. The shirt is a little long on me in terms of sleeve and overall length, given my height. I've decided to shorten the sleeves soon, but I likely won't shorten the overall length because of the print.

    I'm thinking black or green pants, with black derbies and perhaps a drapey black/navy/grey cardigan. Any suggestions/advice?

    Why not a little more Arpenteur linen?

    Let me know how you like those Lorenzo's @ChetB - The silk blend sounds great but I cannot find pictures of the Lorenzo cut being worn.

    I was hoping this was them?

    @ChetB You are the same size as me... :fence:

    I just sent email yesterday requesting a front view to see the pleats. Side photos online look off to me. Enjoy the Aran sweater, I like mine. Shoes are cool too, wish I did not miss out on the brown pair early on.

    @OccultaVexillum I have a pair and they look like the one in your photo.

    I ordered the 52s @gettoasty - I don't think that's your size? I'm in between a 50 and 52 and figured I'd just take them in a little.
