    Best:
    Hard to decide on just one, but I'd have to say one of my DBSS knits as they are quite amazing.

    Worst:
    Wings + Horns tiger fleece hoodie; looked terrible on me.

    Best... [​IMG] [​IMG] Worst... [​IMG] Impulsive, didn't work for me, lost cash money. Hopefully works for the guy I re-sold it to.
    Worst: W+H flannel
    This is madness. The one I got in 09 was not my favourite of the 3 I have but on the whole these might have been the best purchases for me EVER.

    Best:
    Oly. barbell, 255 lbs. in plates, squat rack, starting strength book, rowing machine, lots of whey protein
    Thrift and B&S steeze (Yoko D herringbone cardi/sportcoat jawn, CdG shirt, blackwatch Pendleton, woolrich hunting coat, HermÃ[​IMG]s ties, that cool-ass boater hat, ridiculous plaid pants, nice tie clip, etc.)

    Worst:
    Some shitty concert tees, maybe? It was a pretty baller year for me.

    Best:
    Rick Owens/drkshdw purchases. Leather insert pants, cords, basic tees

    Worst:
    A couple of BoO shirts. Quality of that brand, in my mind, has decreased dramatically for the price.

    Best: EG spring jacket on a huge discount, Gap CPO shirt

    Worst: I lost the important half of my hiking pants so that kinda sucked. Koto chambray, too much of an impulse buy.

    Best: APC Jacket, Vintage Work Boots, KMW 1980s - essentailly the perfect fitting pair of jeans for me.
    Worst: Alt apparel basics, sizing was really inconsistant and the fleece fabric pilled like crazy.
