    Yup they're geller. I wear the same 2 pairs of jeans every day which I'm not unhappy with, but I feel I could benefit from mixing it up a little bit

    Currently only have one pair of raw denim. Far cry from when I was rotating 6. Though I have black, grey, green and painted white denim now. Mixin' it up for the win.

    still cant decide on a turtleneck. The first one is my favourite but is by far the most expensive.

    the augustas are quite nice but imho no piece of footwear is worth over $1000. I have a hard time justifying that any piece of clothing will make me happier than equivalent non-clothing items, i.e. 20 nice meals or a big screen TV or a new computer. even if you have that much money and more, i find it ethically irresponsible for myself to spend that much on a single piece of clothing (and of course i am not going to project that onto you or anyone else here, do whatever you wanna do). i also would think that putting $1000 in your wardrobe might be better spent elsewhere. i dont know why i got into all of that but after getting a pair of c. diems all of these questions started popping into my head. of course im also a student who is building up a lot of debt and probably will have to drastically change my wardrobe in a few years when i wont have any time to wear sw&d stuff anyway, so the situation is obviously different for me.
    Ethics? You're simply stating that around $1000 that is where your marginal rate of substitution sets in. This is completely different for everyone.

    I like it but I can't see you pulling it off.
    I'm not 100% sure either but have a couple of ideas. I wanted a real hat, not just a beanie, but hats in general are hard to wear these days just because no one really does I guess. Anyway I'm leaning towards getting it but we'll see what happens.

    nice stealth edit. and no. i did say that earlier but i am also saying that i think a certain level of luxury is morally wrong in my opinion. i dont really feel like discussing or defining a moral system in buying clothing though so im not sure why i brought it up

    BB1, I feel like you're buying stuff that's really similar to what you already own.
    I actually don't own a single low top boot-- something I've been wanting for a long time. And I happen to like the Augustas better than anything else I've seen in this category. Besides, a lot of your stuff looks surprisingly similar to me too. I feel it becomes difficult to pair styles together well when I buy too many things that look super different. Thus, if someone says "that looks like a typical BB1 purchase" then I consider that to be a good thing. No different than when we see a leopard print Tornado Mart shirt and everyone calls it an "Uncontrol shirt".
    BB1, I think those Augustas would go well with your Attachment stuff.
    You read my mind!
