    ^ My friend and I were looking at those Prada sneakers last week at Barney's Co-Op and making jokes about how fugly they are. Those creamsicle ones are slightly less than tasty.

    I wouldn't wear the hitops myself since they look a bit, well, chav, but the good thing about them is that they're completely water proof so there's at least some practicality to them. I picked up a pair at super discount a while back and they've served me well through rain and snow (I exclusively use them for just that, I like the colors as they work nicely with dark denim, and the 'syntethic' look is perfectly congruent with a rainwear outfit). I normally wear classic sneaks (chucks, adidas, german army trainers etc) but I really think the Pradas look better than a lot of the modern designs by Puma et al, though they'll never be my 'go-to' shoe.

    In honesty, I own a pair of Chucks, and all my other sneakers are reserved for grass cutting. I am gonna be picking up a pair of Jack Purcells as well, but that will likely be it for a while for sneakers. I want to get a dedicated pair of rain boots from LL Bean at some point, but I've got other purchases I'll be making first.

    I got a Jil Sander belt at I.T. which is Hong Kong's version of a high-end "progressive designer" department store.

    The fit and quality are amazing, not to mention the cool details. The arms aren't baggy at all, which seems to be common among flannel work shirts. The fabric is really nice and there's triple chainstitching throughout the shirt. There's also lining on the back of the button side of the placket.

    apc plaid shirt, sz medium

    i am kinda thinking about selling it though, it is too tight in the shoulders, i have really broad shoulders, and if i didn't it would fit really really well, its a shame :|
    so if anyone is possibly interested, i will let it go for a good price... pm me

    Rome had no good shopping, whatsoever.

    Paris had good shopping but that city doesnt believe in sales, at all.

    Now London is where it's at. The entire city was on sale and it was sensory overload seeing everything at a discount. Also couldn't believe my size was available in most items. Here's some stuff I picked up for myself:

    Paul SmithxTriumph mainline boots. Dark burgundy with laceup + sidezip
    [​IMG]

    Agnes b cotton jacket. (agnes b homme in London had an amazing selection, most sizes avail and all 50% off)
    [​IMG]

    Agnes b moleskin trousers with plaid cuff.
    [​IMG]

    Fred Perry argyle cardigan (the guy working there knew me from a mod forum and bought a TaT cardigan from me at one point!! so we got another 20% off the 50% off sale they had)
    [​IMG]

    Fred Perry vneck sweater with cableknit stripes
    [​IMG]

    basic Fred Perry buttondown
    [​IMG]

    Nudie buttondown shirt (I think Rye has this too)
    [​IMG]

    Pringle wool/cashmere shirt (maybe my single fave boutique in London)
    [​IMG]

    and a pair of teal selvedge Pringle jeans

    I wish I was you so I could pull this off. Nice finds for you and yes, Paris does NOT believe in sales (or at least a specific sales season).

    Agnes b moleskin trousers with plaid cuff.

    Yeah I like them as well. I don't think it's something I would normally buy/wear, but those particular boots caught my eye for some reason. I can see those looking awesome in a pair of raw denim. The color is also very nice.
