    As a casual fall jacket:

    The TOJ that just came out. I've always seen bomber jackets as something fat guys wore, while the motorcycle jacket looks much more sleek.

    What do you guys think? This will probably be my only chance to get a fitting leather jacket as I'm tall and slim.


    The first one.

    What are your thoughts on the aesthetics of this as a functional, wear-all-the-time peacoat? [​IMG]

    Agreed, it looks hideous.

    I rather like this, though I'd prefer it as a cardigan instead of a pullover. Who makes/sells it?

    Looking for a blucher oxford with flexible/lightweight rubber/crepe/whatever sole that isn't chunky or clown-shoe round, and is at a reasonable price (pref. $200 or less). This seems to be the closest I can find to fit the bill, though I'm really iffy about this color. I'd prefer a darker brown leather or even brown suede.

    these are under $200? They look pretty flimsy, so I don't know about wearing them through the winter, but I think the shape and color is totally good.

    Well, shit, I am thinking of blowing my wad on an original pair of Mister Freedom jeans that have been out of production for about two years. You know, the ones with three kinds of Sugar Cane denim, including Edo Ai. It's been a grail piece for me for some time now. They are probably the very last new pair on the face of this planet and they just happen to be my size. Buy them now, or forever regret it? Thing is, I can't afford them right now so they'd have to go on my cc. But, I'll be paying off ALL of my debt within the next 12 months regardless. Here's Christophe wearing them: [​IMG]

    If it's your grail piece and you're sure you want it then get it if it's within your means.

    jet has a good point, though those jeans are definitely not for everyone. over-designed or just heavily engineered?

    How much are those Mister Freedom's? Sounds like they are a shit load or is it just retail price?. Just wait for the workman jeans to come out or whatever they are called. Do those use Sugar Cane denim too?
