    I'd say go for it if you need a summer suit (I prefer all wool for 3-season goodness) or live in a warm area. Probably retailed at ~$1700-$1800 would be my guess

    What's similar to this coat, but without the Burberry Prorsum price point?

    First up peacoats/half trench? Yay, or nay? I need something for Autumn/Winter to update my look but am kinda cash strapped being a university student. I figure getting something different to any one of my cheap skate brand hoodies might be good and I can wear it with a business shirt or any one of my t-shirts.

    Budget is about $150-$200 tops.


    Spiewak would be best. They make pretty great stuff for people on a budget.

    At slightly less then the BP price point, there's Macintosh, which is The Original (and can be bought, in updated form, from J Crew if you want). That's $800 though.

    Also, the APC macintosh this season is pretty sharp and minimal, with two pockets incorporated into the side seams to keep the clean feeling. It's narrow-cut, and it's a really nice color. It's also $400, though. I don't know where you can get a mac for cheaper and not have it look like shit.

    I'm looking for a decent light tan (casual) shoe that will work with slim jeans (both black coated and dark blue). Pairing it with the black jeans is probably trickiest, hence why I'm looking for something on the light side. Then again it may not work at all. I'd love some desert boots, as I have a few pairs of Clarks already that I wear quite a bit, but sand is too light while oakwood is too yellow.

    I'm really open to most styles that aren't too over the top, and I'd prefer something at, around, or below $150. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, as browsing online stores already has me overwhelmed without anything sticking out just yet. Thanks!

    I really loved this bag from Krane but $800 is just too overbudget for me. My budgets around $500. Suggestions?

    Slim fit shorts? Did some searching and don't see much about slim in the shorts threads. I wear slim-fit pants and shirts, does that translate to needing slim fit shorts? Does such a thing exist?

    There's a jacket by Penfield that's very similar to that at UO. Under 200, IIRC.

    I'm looking for a decent light tan (casual) shoe that will work with slim jeans (both black coated and dark blue).

    Tan and black together looks like shit. Do not attempt.

    I've already checked them. Didn't see anything I liked too much. *EDIT. Fuck it. Will end up buying Krane bag...
