    Dope, here we go.


    These might look really cool when worn, ugly by themselves though, do you have any fit pics?


    Really depends on how you want to wear it. The KVAs are really sleek and they might look good with some tailored pieces, the ROs would be better for denim and street style stuff because of the bulk of the sneaker, but if you go that route I would hold out for the black and white Rick dunks.


    Keep the boots for sure, maybe return the parka if the bill is making you nervous.

    I didn't like the fit on the CPxGeller boots, so I'm returning them. If anyone wants to kop them for the USD 279 they ran me, please let me know today. They are size 9, TTS.

    I've never owned a hoodie in my life, thought I might give one a go. Not wanting one that looks too 'off to the gym' and thinking I'd try a cheap Uniqlo one.

    Thinking this:

    or

    or should I stick to a solid?

    Any experience of how they fit would be appreciated - site suggests a Large but I don't want it too slim fitting if they come up small/shrink.

    Thanks.

    MoK, as far as hoodies go I would stick to a plain solid color otherwise it will look even more juvenile, and not in a good way.

    Maybe like a navy blue if you want to avoid the "going to the gym" look that heathered grey might give, otherwise that would have been my top choice.

    avoid plaids, patterns, and black in your case.

    MoK, I like the second one far more. Color and pattern are better and will fit with the rest of your wardrobe The first one is a little chav-y on its own, which might balance out with the rest of your stuff, but I would still favor the second.

    I wouldn't really recommend a plaid hoodie, so I'd say the second one.

    MoK just get a workaday hoodie, it would go well with what you wear.

    I don't like the shapelessness in this case.

    you and yourself always have a diff opinion :happy:
    its an xs.

    im open to suggestions for a hooded coat. i kinda agree that the shapelessness would not look good on me. i had the oversized balenciaga fishtail and i didnt feel comfortable in that.

    semi-related, i always look like a freakin criminal in black outerwear.
    sisp=criminal
    siki im=criminal

    my brother says i look like a home alone character and i see it now.

    should i get an overcoat with a high collar (forme d'expression style) or should i just not wear a toque
