    What are some items you wish you owned, but either cannot afford, or have not been able to find?

    I am really liking these jeans from American Apparel: http://www.americanapparel.net/store...lmostBlack.jpg

    I also really want a pair of nike dunks.
    And I've wanted black jack purcells forever.
    I really want a bunch of cool cheap white dress shirts from Jc Penney.
    I want a blue madras tie, and a red one too.
    It would be cool to have really tight tapered red jeans, but only because Jack White is a hero of mine.

    A few really nice hoodies. I know I should put an order in for some of MJK's soon, but I can't bring myself to drop more than $30 on a hoodie, so I keep buying American Apparel hoodies [​IMG]

    Heh, I actually have an Excel spreadsheet where I have it all listed out and budgeted against what I'm willing to spend on all of it. I wonder if I should just post that [​IMG].

    My wishlist is too huge to post and keep track of. I should probably make a spreadsheet like robin, but that seems a bit obsessive. No offense... haha

    Obsessive is an understatement. I actually have it tied into several of my other spreadsheets and have all these crazy formulas and scripts that show me the true costs of the items, when I should buy them, when they'll most likely go on sale, etc...

    I'm really trying to get one of those AA polka dot hoodies...

    As for denim, im either looking at getting flathead 3001's or skull 5507xx's, leaning towards the skulls based on the price

    Oh, and some kind of short peacoat. Something I won't be able to breathe in.

    lee 101b hair on hide
    some kind of vintage duck pant style, but cant find any (or dont have the energy to try ordering directly from japan...)

    and a horsehide A-2, but that will probably not be in the next 5 years...

    Horsehide 1-2 would be the perfect match for your look, unlike most leather jackets so I guess it's time to start saving. J is pretty knowledgeable about nice alternatives for "retro" (read styles that have been around for a while) leather though, I think he's posted advice in several threads about brands and what to look for.
