Please help me keep myself from making a mistake. The enchantment of this delicious light purple bandana patchwork has completely clouded my mind.
I'm going through a phase where I'm buying clothes extremely similar to stuff in my closet from 5 years ago. It's oddly comforting you're experiencing the same dilemma.

But gotta double up, right babe? *Wife rolls her eyes*

Time to be the voice of dissent! :hide:

You're not crazy for wanting it, but colourwise it feels redundant. And you may or may not already have a bandanna Kakashi shirt. Don't do it.

I made a similar redundant purchase: I bought a short sleeved patchwork Kathmandu shirt on sale last year, after having owned a long sleeve one for years. I'm not sure when I'll ever get around to wearing it. Don't be like me!

I hate redundancy for the most part but I am a sucked for lee rider so I technically have the same thing 3 times. Lee 101j vintage, storm rider, Kapitals western with bone embroidery.

I don't know but I think it's too much but I'm a hypocrite

Shirt is doable in an asian post-hippie who listens to Acid Mothers Temple on lsd kind of way but adding the much harder to pull off shape of the first piece in the mix makes it too much. Pass. Note that I'm anti visvim noragis too so YMMV

def the noragi for Acid Mothers vibes (partied with them on their first US tour after a show, bandmate actually sold Kawabata a guitar since he destroyed his. super nice), but not both

I love both. Don't care about "The Vibes". I just want to wear stuff I like. Overthinking clothes takes the fun out of it. Ymmv

However, as people have said before, they are pretty much entirely overlapping so I'll do the most sane thing and pass. Thanks SF!

Seems cool if you bike. Otherwise, for walking in the rain, I would want a longer raincoat.

I’m considering these for straight leg Howell and Lemaire stuff.

@OccultaVexillum I've been thinking about ordering a new pair one size up actually (so a 46), not sure if my feet have gotten bigger or if I've got used to more forgiving footwear but I've walked in them a bit lately and my toes are not happy.
For reference I'm a 11 in Nike and stuff.

Those new Clints look nice
