    Have you gotten this yet? (would like to see pics)

    Yeah but I'm on break until New Years (so I don't have it right now). A written review will probably be done before then out of sheer boredom but pictures will have to wait, trying to find a way to use my friends nice DSLR and not tell him why (I uhmm...want to take a picture for myself for a bunch of strangers on the internet...).

    Best: Stephan Schneider Author cardigan; MMM Burgundy Shawl sweater; Jil Sander turtle neck; W+H boots

    Worst: Ummm it's been a good year, only possibility is WvG shirts, because I got the wrong size, but not because of the shirts themselves.

    Best: CP Training Boots, ToJ Unwashed Grey Moto, Loden Dagger Sea Island Tee, blue BoO oxford Worst: RMWs, a bunch of meh stuff that didn't fit me the way I wanted it to.
    Yeah, that whole situation clearly sucked. The original seller is such an asshole as it is super obvious that they are Women's by the size of the boot versus the marked size. Best Purchase: Probably Nudie blacked coated conny jacket. It is the tits for sure. Worst Purchase: idk

    Sometimes one purchases an item, only to be disappointed later, usually by worse than expected build quality.

    Best has got to be my black tanner belt and a herring bone chore coat from Pointer.
    worst: the RRL jeans I bought that are just way too big. Love them just wish they fit.
