    I wasn't too serious about it, but now I'm definitely going to give it a shot:

    BTW, I'm definitely down for the chair backpack if EG ever puts that one out. Give it to the GF so she can carry me on our next hike.

    Great pickups Timpo. A bit curious how you´ll wear that APC coat though, since it seems a bit more dressy and "european" than what i´ve seen from you. More waywt´s pleaaase!

    ^^^Thanks Bobo. The APC Coat I'll probably just wear by itself, simple and streamlined, for nights out with the GF. No room for layering under that one. Probably with a scarf, although I like how the collar looks, so I might not.

    I'll try to get the WAYWT posts started again one of these days, but I haven't found a good spot and time at the new office (lighting is horrible) and I'm in too much of a rush in the mornings to get it done at home.

    It's a spring jacket. I think it's the mesh lining one.

    I buy most of my Jil Sander at Jil Sander

    Sounds logical..

    In my country we don't have a Jil Sander store so that kinda sucks.. Is it worth it to make the big travel once in a while? I have to go to Germany ( I live in the Netherlands ). I mean do they have much more than there is available on the internet?

    Barney's NY and Saks both carry Jil. Selection at both is pretty limited, but should be fine if you're looking for basic items like simple button front shirts or black/grey suits.

    It goes on sale like pretty much everything else in those stores. I picked up a black Jil suit at Barneys a month or so ago at 40% off.

    what is the price point of their decent starting line of suits? (i dont know what lines they have , mainline, luxury line, diffusion line, etc)

    would it be implausible to think to get one of their decent suits in under $700?

    i know the saks at south coast carries none. i hope you meant barneys nyc at the one in beverly hills.

    The basic black or grey suit is going to run you $1400 retail. Others can get way up there in price.

    The only Saks and Barney's I go to are in Beverly Hills. Can't really speak for the others. They definitely don't have it at co-op though.

    Correct you can get the entry level basic suits about $1400 full retail and if you play it right could get it for about 40% off.

    Saks and Barneys are your best bets if you are in the LA area.

    As to the guy in the Netherlands I think there is even a Jil Sander outlet in Germany.

    would the jil suits be the way to go for a guy like me more into a slimmer more fashionable suit (of decent quality) and not into the rigid, old man cuts of brooks, oxxford, samuelsohn? etc what have you , brands that are more into fabrics and construction rather than just a lighten-up fun and style.

    like , i wouldnt mind getting a suit from Nice Collective if they had a model i was interested in (They have a linen/cotton one that is cool, but it is black)
    the cut is more street-fashion sense and looks better on the younger group of people needing just a suit for going out or even a wedding, not some suit for banking, law firms, FBI, and interviews.

    One look at their suits on a runway should give you the warm and fuzzy that you won't be getting an old man suit.

    I'm pretty happy with mine. I could easily wear it as separates if I wanted to. The pants are fairly slim too, but your mileage may vary because apparently the buyers have a choice of different cuts when they go to the show room.

    It's a nice and trim shape that you can get from the suit and is still going to be well made. I'd liken it to Ralph Lauren Black Label, Dior Homme, Prada, etc.
