    As am I, and didn't mind telling people what I spend on clothing before (though I don't spend as much as others here). I've learned to stop because it spreads like wildfire. Your friends and family start telling others to the point where people you barely know are singling you out in a group because you paid almost $800 for a jacket. I usually brush it off but it does get annoying at times and would rather avoid that whole awkward situation all together.

    Are you sure? It's really great.. It's about 4, maybe 5 pages of me and Drew Keith high-fiving, me and Drew Keith holding hands, me flying a rocket ship into space, landing on mars and making space-clothes, me and Drew Keith high-fiving about the space clothes, bathing in mountains of gold coins while martians cheer our jawnz, etc etc. Pretty inspiring stuff.

    some Heritage Research navy/brown varsity love, excited to see new S/S developments

    edit: varsity? just like the colorway, TOJ fit will be better and about half the price

    I may be alone in this, but as someone who is no longer in middle school I find caring about what other people use disposable income for rather tedious, and the people who care about caring doubly so.

    Cost usually correlates with quality fairly casually (and in fashion, really casually), but you literally cannot have a mature conversation about price because it's simply not a topic viable in public. Either something is justified in the context of your budget and your desire, or it isn't, but money only makes sense seen through the lens of those two things and any time you begin exporting either of those onto other people you miss the point of what clothes are about.

    It feels a lot like trying to have a debate about the existentialism of tofu. You could, sure, but how do you know when somebody wins?

    Guys, I'm thinking of a 2011 black lamb moto. Whats the consensus on 2-zip vs 4-zip?

    Also, would wearing a shirt inside be weird with that type of collar? A casual oxford, not a tucked in dress shirt btw.

    Thanks.

    ^I vote for two. and yes, an oxford would imo look a bit weird with a moto.

    depends how big you are...

    if you're small, like 44-46~ you can get a 2 or 4 zip

    if larger, 2 zips looks weird since there's all that empty room, so get a 4zip

    yep.

    For the record I'm a 46/47 and 5'10 tall.

    Currently leaning towards 2 zip just because I haven't really been able to see anybody wearing a 4 zip that is skinnier and look cool.

    4 zip, hands down.

    I'm getting one towards fall. Preferably without a hemline, if available.
    Still can't deside between lamb of calf. Need some durability.
