lamp tell me something about corduroy shirts
in like burgundy or grey

whether rock (los blue jeans), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 01:34 (seven years ago) Permalink

i think duffel coats are still p current looking, daria or elmo might recall better but i think in particular those loop/tog fasteners (what is the name for this) are still a really current detail so

i mean i know the coat has a slightly different connotation in england (its a p indie look iirc?) than it does here but i like them

SOMEGHOSTDURRP (Lamp), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 01:34 (seven years ago) Permalink

this in grey: http://shop.uniqlo.com/uk/goods/069857#colorSelect
suede desert boots in a saucy colour, e.g. brandy (leaning this way) or dark blue
couple of plain flannel button down shirts in beige or white
plain corduroy shirt in like dark green or dark red

shawl collars have become a bit scally in the uk : (

caek, Wednesday, 14 September 2011 01:39 (seven years ago) Permalink

yeah duffel coats are either indie or lol oxford. i feel like i could pull it off now i am not in the uk though.

caek, Wednesday, 14 September 2011 01:40 (seven years ago) Permalink

i have no opinions on corduroy shirts other than that i have this is mb a h1pster trend here atm

also i do think like gitman bros. style 'coarse' shirts in heavy fabrics will be big

yeah shawl collars are kinda off trend or w/e i wanted one of those sweaters last year but didnt bite the bullet

tbrr i just totally vibe the whole norwegian fisherman thing thats reaching its apex this year idk

SOMEGHOSTDURRP (Lamp), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 01:42 (seven years ago) Permalink

i am finding it hard to find plain (i.e. non-lumberjack) flannel shirts in sensible modern cuts

caek, Wednesday, 14 September 2011 01:45 (seven years ago) Permalink

also i want a raw silk/linen tie for not €€€

caek, Wednesday, 14 September 2011 01:47 (seven years ago) Permalink

i guess this is a prince of wales check? anyway this is good ex. of the pant i was talking abt

SOMEGHOSTDURRP (Lamp), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 04:38 (seven years ago) Permalink

i have no idea who that post was directed at either btw

SOMEGHOSTDURRP (Lamp), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 04:38 (seven years ago) Permalink

i love apc so much. thinking about getting a crewneck pullover but i want it in bright pink. also thinking about a knit sweater jacket from there. or really splurging on their red hooded coat. RED. <3

i have some acne pistol boots on preorder. shouldn't spend the money .. gonna sell a pair or two i don't wear to not feel as bad, i guess.

don't care much about trends but i do like the trend of bright colored trousers and i'd like a pair in red if i could find any i liked. the only pairs i've seen are j brand and rag & bone in the skinny-skinny cut and i don't want that

that's really all i need. got a couple of simple knee length skirts from theory.. and i would really like a nicer fitted blazer in cream or taupe from isabel marant or vanessa bruno, i just can't find the perfect one (and shouldn't spend that kind of money tbh)

daria-g, Thursday, 15 September 2011 03:03 (seven years ago) Permalink

oh hell i also maybe should get an apc 'fashion is for losers' t-shirt and their 20's top in RED, i have one in navy already & it goes with everything

daria-g, Thursday, 15 September 2011 03:06 (seven years ago) Permalink

I would love a pair of red trousers! I've been on the lookout for forever, but have not come across a pair that would work for me.

I threw away my 10+ years old winter coat last year (black wool peacoat, had replaced lining 2+ times, didn't cost much to begin with). I'd like an awesome camel coat and am willing to drop some cash on it if it would give me a decade of wear. Suggestions appreciated! Must be go0d for both casual and over-work-clothes wear (pantsuits, mostly) and look good on a tall laydee.

quincie, Thursday, 15 September 2011 03:25 (seven years ago) Permalink

Also there was a Jason Wu dress in the print WaPo today that I <3

quincie, Thursday, 15 September 2011 03:26 (seven years ago) Permalink

if you want to spend $$$ then i guess max mara is the obv choice

Lamp, Thursday, 15 September 2011 03:30 (seven years ago) Permalink

Fav time for fashions btw

D-40, Thursday, 15 September 2011 03:38 (seven years ago) Permalink

garance dore got a camel coat from max mara and she knows what's up. i'll keep an eye out, i usually don't pay attention because i look like death in that color

daria-g, Thursday, 15 September 2011 03:52 (seven years ago) Permalink

haha me too - i totally ignore everything camel coloured in fashion! charcoal all the way. white in my dreams, the ones where nothing ever spills and bikes don't need grease.

obliquity of the ecliptic (rrrobyn), Thursday, 15 September 2011 05:00 (seven years ago) Permalink

Camel may not be the most flattering of shades on me, but I am sick to death of black coats. Charcoal would be an option, but I am really trying to expand my coat horizons. A nice cherry red would be cool.

quincie, Thursday, 15 September 2011 14:12 (seven years ago) Permalink

UKers: depending on the item, I'm a 6, 8, or 10 in US women's sizes. What UK size for a coat that supposedly runs true to size? UK 12???

quincie, Thursday, 15 September 2011 14:35 (seven years ago) Permalink

10 or 12 i think but E would know better if she's reading

caek, Thursday, 15 September 2011 14:45 (seven years ago) Permalink

Oh man Quincie that's hard. Which of those do you think you'd most likely wear in a coat? You'd maybe want to size up to accommodate sweaters?

In general US - UK is two sizes so

6 - 8 UK
8 - 10 UK
10 - 12 UK

Some websites say to size up 2 sizes but I've never felt that's the case. I'm a US 12 and a UK 14 pretty consistently.

I would maybe order a 10 but make sure it's something you can exchange if the size isn't right?

Sorry - that wasn't very helpful.

man i would buy a new winter coat every year if i could afford it i love buying coats, jackets, sweaters

Lamp, Thursday, 15 September 2011 15:59 (seven years ago) Permalink

otm.

i got a great vintage pea coat last year. it is like 1/2" too small though which the fit a bit more "fashion" than i would like, and the shoulders end up being a little bit dramatic.

caek, Thursday, 15 September 2011 16:04 (seven years ago) Permalink

I've been wearing the same navy pea coat for a couple years and I'm not tired of it yet but wow I REALLY do want that APC coat in red, I tried it on and the fit is perfect.

daria-g, Thursday, 15 September 2011 16:41 (seven years ago) Permalink

Hmmmm I think I'm gonna go for the UK12. With a coat it seems better to err on the side of too big than too small!

quincie, Thursday, 15 September 2011 16:44 (seven years ago) Permalink

haha daria imo the f/w apc stuff is some of their nicest in years just the palette and the details... they have an 'english mack' that i covet but i just got a new coat last winter

I know Laurel aren't they the most beautiful coats you've ever seen. I keep looking at them . . .

your mom the burrito (ENBB), Thursday, 15 September 2011 16:51 (seven years ago) Permalink

I mean all of the nice coats I've had over the years have probably originally been around those prices but I've never actually paid full price for them. I always wait until they're marked down. I doubt these will get marked down any time soon though.

Their camel suit-coat is literally stabbing me in the heart with its coolness.

despite my ethics and love of animals and opposition to slaughter for fashion purposes :( i just really love leather and really want a fur vest - i feel like it's a hypocritical thing of me to want, but i truly do respect clothes made out of animals more than i do synthetics (which is a whole other kettle of fish re: industry, craftmanship, etc) - at least they're items that last forever, can be repaired and well-loved. also my feet and synthetic fabric do not get along in any way, ouch ouch ouch.
also fur is so amazingly warm!! montreal was meant for wearing fur, not even kidding. i am torn...

I was inspired by Mireille Darc's sartorial choices in "Weekend" last night.

rrrobyn - at least it is vintage, right? i understand your fur concerns, and i think that your buying used is really a good testament to the virtues of durability and practicality you mentioned!

Is the cut of those orange pants the way things are going to go this fall? Because come on, that is really weird looking with the low crotch and the very tapered legs.

im dressed pretty well this fall tbh

flopson, Thursday, 13 October 2011 00:03 (seven years ago) Permalink

carrot cut is terrible. makes you look like you have a fat arse or nappy.

jed_, Thursday, 13 October 2011 02:35 (seven years ago) Permalink

but i dig the bold colours thing. i can't really wear browns, beiges, mossy colours etc, it's not for me but i think it can look great on others.

jed_, Thursday, 13 October 2011 02:37 (seven years ago) Permalink

carrot cut is a little weird but if done right it can be really nice. i got those off asos and on arrival they're a little bit too drop crotch for my liking, though i'm still happy enough. but i have another pair of carrot cut that are a bit less baggy and tighter and they sit really nicely. i like the sort of "plus fours" feeling of them...think they're nicer with the cuffs rolled up a bit tho and some decent socks (enhances the sort of humorous british vibe) they look insane if you wear them full length imo, the narrowing at the bottom is so diff from the baggy ass. if rolled up a bit they kinda sit nicely.

flopson, Thursday, 20 October 2011 04:41 (seven years ago) Permalink

got a bit of stuff recently, orange polo neck, looks pretty great with navy blazer and a mac. also got some sort of burgundy jeans and a heavy cable knit sweater. gonna look at second hand stuff today for a bit i think.
