    There is about 1 degree of separation between this thread and the "Ask a Question, Get an Answer - please ask all quick questions here" thread. Same goes for the WAYWT discussion thread. It's just turning into another WAYWN thread.

    What's the point? I thought we wanted less clutter, not more. [​IMG]

    Is that really the best you can do? [​IMG]

    Now this is a bit funnier. I'd recommend something with a strong aftertaste and an offensive odor. Such a cheese would mask the whine and help you forget about the substance behind it.

    I think the style I am aiming for would be on the casual side of what I see on this forum, as I feel most comfortable in sneakers, jeans, and a hoodie.
    so buy one of each that fits you well, then see where it goes from there.

    Souper i have a pair of raf x fred perry pants i think from this fw0809 that are a very nice wool and pretty skinny, try track down a pair in black (i think the sizes run big btw), i wear them cuffed but they can work stacked.

    For linen pants, the junya ones from ss08 could be great if you can find them...if you want a higher price bracket things like ccp/ann D could fit the description.

    The differences between the WAYWT and the WAYWT chat edition should be clear.

    The difference between the Quick questions thread is that all "quick" questions should be asked there. Stuff from "Do these Raf Simons sneakers look like ass?" (a: Yes) to "Where to kop CPs for cheap?". In the noob thread, much more involved questions can be asked, things like "Please help me build a wardrobe from scratch for $500".

    I'll start it off: I want a blazer....
    This is a very lightweight, brushed wool blazer I picked up from Opening Ceremony in January at 50% off for 275. The fabric is really really soft, it's a nice jacket. This is a size medium which corresponds to a 38; I think it's a bit big on me put it would probably be perfect for you Chrono. I might have it worked on but anyway, call them up (both stores) and see if they still have this shit lying aorund; I ordered the matching slacks a few weeks ago for a dance and they were 75% off at 80 bucks, so if they still have this blazer it should be for a good price.

    Ive been looking for a slim pair of shorts for awhile...Jcrew has nice offerings this season but out of my price range at full retail. SLIM NOT SKINNY SHORTS.
    Are you a college student? If so, you get a 15% discount at J Crew which brings the club shorts down to 50 bucks. If you still can't afford that, then I would go to Urban Outfitters and buy pants from last season on sale and cut them down. You can do it yourself if you're careful.

    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'm particularly happy with Club Monaco's equivalent (they have sizes down to XS) ... however they have no online store (bastards).

    If you have one in the area, definitely check CM out.

    I sometimes think it's criminal that we don't have rep system.

    Two things: Where can i find a jacket like this?[​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.


    You should PM member yfyf because that's him in the picture and he'd be able to tell you what the jacket is.

    Wait. Did you just call me fat?

    That jacket looks pretty nice. Might have to look into it. Opening Ceremony nyc or la? If you are bored later and can trow a measurement or something in PM, that'd be cool.

    I need a new jacket. Something basic like an M65. Should I just go for surplus, or try and find something in a similar vain in shops? I saw a Levi's military jacket on another thread, but cant find it on their website or anywhere else. EDIT: Around the 40/50 pound mark. 60 if its a really great buy.

    Looking for a slim navy COTTON blazer to be worn with cotton pants and jeans. The shipley and halmos blazer looked about perfect but it seems to have sold out about everywhere.
