    I agree that most H&M quality is lacking, but if you look at the price point it's not that terrible a deal. I was really impressed with how a beanie I got from them held up - took a damn beating during a Chicago winter and still looked alright. Lost it on vacation, goddamn shame.

    Easiest way for slim shorts is probably to just cut up a pair of chino's though its pretty boring.

    chrono- mike lowrey has been selling this for a while on SZ don't know your price limit but it looks really great... he says its really lightweight so thats good for florida weather and would look awesome with lighter shades. Apparently its around a sz50 so I think thats prob close to your size, measurements are:
    shoulders: 44cm
    pit to pit: 52.5cm
    width at button: 49cm
    full length: 82cm (top of collar to hem)

    I wanted to buy it but couldn't cut the price [​IMG] beautiful jacket though.

    Two things: Where can i find a jacket like this?[​IMG] and a windbreaker like the one on the right [​IMG] Or who makes similar items? I'm looking for a jacket like the top one that isn't M65 styled and has a slightly asymetrical detail like the shoulder flap.

    davo- Yea, i've seen that one on sale for a long time. Always thought i'd need a 48 but it does look nice. Should've tried socal or will's blazer on when i was in nyc for reference when i had the chance. tigerforumula- American Apparel makes a similar windbreaker to the bottom guy's. So does h&m and uniqlo

    looking for quality skinny stacked trouser-type (non cotton) pants that don't cling to my thighs. Saw this pulled off a few times with great success. Who's making a cut like these for spring?

    needs to be 225 or less. sale or non.

    Be more specific? Any examples or something? What do you mean no cotton? Trousers come in cotton too, not just jeans. My khaki a77 costellos are 100% cotton but more of a thin trouser material and the black costellos i have are 100% cotton but more a chino material

    Well, of course. Actually you seem like the person who would be able to answer this for me. I want skinny pants that aren't khakis , cords or jeans that I can stack. Maybe wool, silk, linen, would be good. Needs to be lightweight! Saw some hipster fuck wearing some really nice textured grey wool pants that fit this description, want2kop look.

    If you can track down April 77 costellos, they'd be a good bet. Royalcheese, yoox, revolve and maybe 1 or 2 more stockists carry or used to carry them.

    Patrick Ervell, Robert Geller, Obedient Sons, Raf Simons, Mjolk (aren't super skinny though), raf by raf all have some slim to skinny trousers throughout the past season or two. Keep an eye on online retailers of them.

    Go visit Robbie at Target and buy a button down you like but isn't over the top obnoxious and get it tailored. I always wonder what people are thinking when they add in descriptives like I am still growing. Do you really want people to know you're a little guy?

    Edit: I don't think Robbie works at Target anymore but whatever.


    No, I do work at Target... but they don't sell anything cool for someone on a budget at all. Definitely not rad-ass desert boots, or Merona OCBD's, nope... so don't waste your time shopping there go to Wal-mart their selection of fine mens wear is vastly superior to Tarjays...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Also, I live in the Bay Area, so any advice on shopping in San Francisco would also be greatly appreciated.

    See the Retail Directory in my sig. SuperFuture has an even more extensive list. http://www.superfuture.com/supertravel/

    Identify those mid-priced items that are of much higher quality.

    In particular, J. Crew's merino wool is fantastic. I wore their 1/2 zip and full-zip cardigan from this season probably 3 times a week and they still haven't lost their form.

    I am the ultimate noob, and this thread seems made for me. I can summarize my wardrobe quickly:

    Well, I could give you a rundown of the standard basics, but that's standard. Do you have any style you swing towards? Any major hobbies/passions?
