    First clothing purchase in several months. Just ordered a jackeet from Loden Dager and a short sleeve trovata button down. I have never seen Loden Dager in person or heard anything about them on this board, but it was too good of a deal to pass up. Jet, those sweaters look amazing.

    Note: model=not me, which explains the badly adjusted sleeves.

    Oh, while we're on the subject, I finally saw that Junya jacket you posted in a fit several months ago, in Tokyo on sale. It's amazing. Too bad they only had it in XS (or SS, as they prefer to call it) left. I cried a little.

    Relatively recent purchases [​IMG] I just almost never post in here and haven't really bought clothes ultra recently so I posted my latest acquisitions. Let's call it delayed recent purchases...

    I may be more conservative than most, but I have a hard time envisioning anytime I'd wear those tuxedo-inspired blazers. They just don't jive right to me.

    Thanks asobu and dill.

    Fuuma, how come you got two similar jackets?

    I've been wanting something lanvin for some time now, I think I might pull the trigger on a small collar shirt and silk scarf/tie soon.

    I have the second one in purple that I've worn to see The National Chorale, openings at The Met and work.

    Recent un-purchase for me. The post office fucked up and lost my Inapt Pea Coat so i'm out of my key winter jacket and $100. Also, my girlfriend's pea coat was lost at the same time. So now i'm in the market for a winter jacket again. Not really sure what i'm gonna end up getting. The only things i have to wear when it's cold now, is this one french f2 jacket that's alright fitting, an AA flex fleece hoodie that is pretty thin, and an ill fitting BR brown hoodie. Sucks that f/w stuff for all brands/stores aren't out yet.

    This vintage Lee western shirt that is pretty 'drugs'. Fits perfectly - nice and slim. From a thrift. Also got a Fred Perry polo - white with thin navy and red trim on the collar and sleeve cuffs. Made in England.

    I dont know how cold it gets there, but my EG hoodie I got at the end of last winter is pretty sweet. They have both the pullover and zip up on peasant.

    Yea, i generally prefer my stuff slightly slimmer than the relatively full cut models that EG produces. Although, that black zip up raglan hoodie looks pretty nice. I'd still like an actual coat, but a decent hoodie is on my list too. That one looks purdy. Too bad i don't have the money for both a vacation to boston/nyc or LA to visit friends or family and to buy clothes there.

    This one looks great in Lanvin purple. By the way is it me or is yours entirely unwrinkled? Do you try to keep it that way?

    Mine is from the 1st Lanvin runway collection (FL 06) and I think your "washed/wrinkled" jacket is from the SS 07 collection...each of ours have their correct and intended look.

    OH, I misunderstood your comment as saying it was from the same collection as mine (indeed S/S 07), where the main idea was that jackets were wrinkled and fabrics often had a used/washed look. My bad, still a great jacket although, like most of Lanvin, the non-wrinkled version is too "clean" for my style.

    They are in no way similar: different cut, lapels, colour, pockets, fabric. You definitely would not say that if you saw them in person.

    Fuuma,

    I had a black satin Costume National jacket that is similar to the notch lapel one you bought. Pretty cool.

    The one from two seasons ago with the working buttonholes? If that's the case it is indeed gorgeous, nearly got it but the fit of costume is good but not ideal on me.
