    Dior homme black 19cm jeans.

    Why's that? I love my pair.

    I hate the fit, sized down as much as I could and they're still loose. Fit on the top block is good, but they're really lose around the calf.

    17.5s probably suit your build better I image. I was considering them.

    Where the tracksuit and jersy both xxl? I really hope you still have these and will post a fitpic with them.
    I think they were L. XXL probably would have eaten me up at that tender age... Of course I don't own these anymore. Here's an old fit pic of me, though... [​IMG]

    I think these will be much more interesting than the best cheapies

    Time + a small budget has been kind... worst purchase in recent memory was a $50 A&F madras long sleeve. Too hot to wear in the summer, too bright + colorful to wear in the other 3 seasons


    Why are people afraid to wear some color during the winter and fall? Kinda dumb to delegate pieces of clothing just because the weather changes. I can understand fabric thickness, but it's absolutely fucking awesome to not see an ocean of grey, brown, and black during the colder months.

    Anyways, so far I haven't made any poor decisions on a really expensive item yet. I think a Patrik Ervell linen shirt I got for $95 has been the worst...fit kinda weird on me and I don't like the way linen is.

    I can't even find a picture of it right now, but Levi's made a yellow, brown, and white mini check trouser that UO carried last year. I always imagined wearing them in hot weather in a real skeazy outfit but I never remembered. Conversely, I wore a grey and a brown pair of 514 polyester trousers a hundred times each to work, making them some of my best purchases.

    edit: somehow 'expensive' in the thread title didn't register with me

    Maybe on a cool spring day, but that's a good 2 months out of the year To wear said shirt in the winter I would need an equally light colored coat + scarf + hat for things to even begin to make sense... not worth the investment This sounds like a challenge... shirt is on sale... everyone buy it and post a good winter fit pic with it

    Brilliant, it's like Robbie: The Sequel

    Seriously, we need another baller thread to balance out this nonsense.
