    All I have for outerwear currently is some light jackets, and mostly leathers. Trying to up my winter items cuz I dont wanna freeze my balls off.

    So, help me choose

    http://www.antonioli.eu/products/11086-rick-owens-knitwear?gen=men

    love the simple classic cardigan by rick

    http://why-lip.com/ro_mens/ro11a-RU2660M/03p.jpg


    or the more extravagant julius coat

    in charcoal


    julius one strikes me as more costumey even though its cool. Trying to get a balance with wearability and coolness.

    love the simplicity of the RO one.

    That rick looks great and really comfortable too. Almost like a baller robe. I really like the silhouette given by the high offset button at the top. Price seems pretty good too for rick

    Microsoft Wired Natural Keyboard Elite for $29.99 on Amazon

    Anything better out there? I effed up my back recently, and I think my tiny laptop keyboard is slowing my recovery because I hunch my shoulders in order to type on it. :(

    I think that's an awesome idea. I have this oversized shawl collar sweater/robe thing that belonged to my grandfather, cream with this cool fair isle-ish pattern, really chunky knit. I was going to wear it in the winter kind of in the way you described, but with blue raws and brown sorels. Where would you be ordering from?
