I had that jacket for a bit. The ropey bits rattle with any movement. The hardware was also a huge jump down in quality compared to other pieces of his. Looks cool hanging up though.

I picked up a Lee 101-j. I had one for years but I never liked the fit -- too short -- and sold it. I found this one in a 44 long and it's perfect. The other one was in much better shape, quite dark, but I find that denim jackets drape better when they're more broken in.

I wore nothing but Sambas for years before I got into this fashion stuff. They were easy, durable, and looked good with everything. I don't think any of the dozens and dozens of shoes I've bought and worn since have made me any happier.

The amount I've spent on clothing over the past 5 years makes me sick to my stomach, and I need to start saving for a house. Back to the basics.

But I did buy a white pair, too, at least. :)

They remind me of the Busenitz. Which is always a good thing.

Oh dear,someone help me stop. I need a cure for stress-shopping.
Apart from that, really love the purchase. Super comfy and the black shoe I really need.
Also these type of Bally sneaker tend to sold out fast.

When my non-fashion friends ask me about shoes I usually direct them to vans or spring courts. Inevitably they come back to me concerned about whether they can pull them off and the conversation converges on sambas. They are great looking basic shoes.

I’m with you, expenditures on clothing will be budgeted this year. I have more than I need. With a baby on the way, a not entirely furnished house, and less than 20 years to 50 years of age - I’d like to put my finances in other areas of my life. I won’t be thinking about fashion any less. It just won’t be so singular.

@mmmargeologist shit you wrote less than 20 years of age to 50 and it took me a second then my thought is fuck I’m in the same boat. Crazy thinking I’m 14 years away from that.

Wondering why you said 50 though, idk if you are in USA but I expect to work until approx 65ish, really really hope that’s not the case.

I’d like to be able to not be afraid of life at a lower income level by 50. I agree though, probably continue to work after 50. Other capacities like teaching kind of interest me.
