    I now hate myself for passing up on that shirt.

    You're welcome

    Before this post, it was difficult to imagine a consummate Junya collector like you writing a sentence like that

    totally agree with this.


    Yup. Except in black. The cabling is kind of thick so I don't know if I'd be as big a fan in a lighter colour that makes it obtrustive.

    Sometimes drinking is more valuable than clothing, this was not one of those times. Also, you flatter me.

    to everyone who asked about the last jeans+boots fit, Jeans are Nom de Guerre narrow denim (texture is amazing), fiorentini and baker boots, and an AA vneck.

    Yep, it sure is, do you know the actual name of the style?. It's kind of a shame, I love the way it fits me through the legs, but the way the top block fits is pretty heinous. Also some of the coolest denim I've handled, I wish I could buy a petit standard made with nom de guerre denim.

    Also, xenox, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't describe that fit as "Americana," more like "Jeans, boots and a t-shirt."

    Everything about that fit is conspiring to make you look short. A big shirt shrinks you, it should be cut much closer to the body. Jeans are too big in the thighs; that plus the taper makes you look even shorter. Colors/patterns could be better as well, light blue shirt plus med-light blue jeans is not really advisable (although there's nothing wrong with it, it's just boring). Shoes are fine; now make everything slim and trim and we'll be getting somewhere.

    all mmm


    Everything is kind of boxy and wrinkly, I know mmm isn't supposed to pop out at you but that is pretty bland. It might just be your JD May shoulders?

    This seems like a general rule for NDG denim. I had a pair that gave me enormous mangina

    ^lol. yes, ndg needs fix the rise on the jeans.

    synthese, they always have grey denim but each season they use different fabric for their jeans. The pair that you have came out 2 years ago. The cut is "narrow fit" with zipper fly. "Classic Fit" is with buttons fly.

    ^Thanks, Mellow! And yep, I picked them up 2 years ago in this cool little shop in Paris with a pretty SA called Frenchtrotters (check it out if you're in the...8th, maybe it was? Lots of "mid-tier" brands; acne, filippa K, etc. etc.). Right down the street from an APC store, good times. Anyway, back to my "street shtick" today: wearing: [​IMG] [​IMG] drinking [​IMG]
