    Shah, that looks amazing.

    El Bert, I vastly prefer 2 buttons. 3 is okay if you're tall, but not for me (5'-10). 1 is okay if it's really cool looking and casual. It's always frustrating flipping through the hundreds on Yoox that are mostly 3+ buttons. And then you finally find one that's perfect and the designer spent extra money to put in some dumb contrast stitched buttonhole that completely ruins it...ok venting now.

    Where to kop Devoa? Would something like the lapelless blazer make it to sale or need to buy at retail?

    Shah, what kind of prices are the de rien people asking?
    do they have a retail store? Might pay them a visit next time I'm in london, that looks incredible.

    I think they sell at Hostem, around £800-£900 for jackets, more for coats.

    Not my style, but really nice looking.

    Edit: definitely at Hostem http://www.43hostem.co.uk/shopping/men/de-rien/items.aspx?userd=1

    Yeesh, they're pricey. Beautiful though, especially the dropped jackets. Apparently they also sell clothes a little cheaper through spitalfields/portobello road markets so I might give them a look.

    Dorje, if you don't have to be in an office you should jut go whole hog on this shit, instead of trying to blend quirky biz-cas with Damir. I say just go for it. Live the dream, dude.

    Please elaborate Synth? What do you consider quirky biz-cas... I have had to look biz-cas for long enough...

    I mean the john varvatos/ washed linen jeans/ all the relatively normal stuff you've been wearing and posting in the "should I" thread. It sounds like you've had a bit of a renaissance; what better time could there be to experiment?

    I think you should take a look at fits by Nil, some of the pieces you've posted pics of lately seem similar to the stuff he wears

    Not having dress code / working for yourself is the best.

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

    I would be happy to own almost everything Nil has posted looking at his waywt fits.

    I also don't want to wear stuff too far outside the norm so my clothes get too much attention. I'm sure this differs from place to place but Colorado is kinda conservatively (poorly) dressed compared to a lot of cities... especially Boulder, which I am closest to.

    That's fair, but just fyi these pictures are from REI in downtown Boulder. No, it's not a metropolis, and poorly-dressed it may be, but you're much less likely to get your teeth broken for being a faggot in Boulder than you are in a lot of places. CU students might yell "hammer pants" at you, but it's far from the most unfriendly place I've been.
