    ^ I liked the SS polo version -- or would have, if it didn't have a now-redundant embroidered chest logo in addition to the carven zipper pull.

    That just seems like an unimaginative extension of the same theme, but if you actually need something in that category I can't see why it would be a horrible choice, it's not as if very many people are going to note that the zips are logos when they aren't even letters/words.

    Are Bally sneakers SF approved? Saw these leather ones that caught my eye:

    There's a black version too.

    The stripe is a tacky signifier and only decreases their versatility. Don't buy.

    bally had some cool hightops not too long ago, no dorky stripes/etc. the sneakers are well made but brown w/ a red-white stripe is kind of blah. edit: these hi's

    yo thoughts on these jackets (undercover): [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] The last one apparently rolls into a packaway bag... anyone have images of this? also, on a technical feel lately... anyone make some good elastic bottomed jogger style pants? don't want sweats but something a bit sleeker.

    Second jacket looks pretty cool. Is it perforated by the pockets?

    yeah around the pockets and in a few other places, the first jacket is entirely perforated as well, which makes this all the more difficult! gotta cop em all [​IMG]

    This is the only RO sneakers I've liked since the dunks. Tempting since I might be able to get it for around $700.

    The second one stands out. Very modern, yet LL Bean at the same time (in a good way).

    I personally am a HUGE UC fan, but I can't recommend anyone to buy a single piece from this collection outside of the terry suit. This shit was so fragile I was literally scared to try it on. You've been forewarned, chances are it won't come with tags saying "this garment will fall apart"

    Thats a great price on those RO sneakers. I bought the exact same ones for about $850 from mrporter.com

    Yes/no?

    Need a casual spring jacket. I'm a bit skeptical about all the zipper logos though.


    They don't look that logo-ish (it's not like they're embroidered on the chest); they just look like weird zipper pulls. They just look like they're large enough that they'd be irritating after a while, particularly the ones that aren't a full circle.
