    Your gear, gear you want, gear you got. Doesn't have to be tennis stuff, just about anything.

    Just got this not too long ago.

    The 2nd floor's got some 'loonie' priced-absurd selections...(forget the CD-bs & overcrowed otherwise/jive--smirk--on the ground floor....)

    bezs: I like the orange jacket; it'd look good while running or something that's related to training.

    mozzer: M'man, I can't say I'm feelin' the jacket. It's too shiny. Men should never wear glossy leather. But what do I know, I'm fashion-impaired. And you know what they say - to each their own, yeah? Go for the pants though!

    Anyway, the missus took me shopping yesterday. I found a pair of shoes I liked and bought them. Later on "we" decided that "we" didn't really like the shoes after all and returned them and bought these instead (a lot darker in real life):

    Also bought a painting I took a likin' to, to fill a bit of void on my wall:

    Lastly, we found a vest for me. It's my first vest.

    The Puma Mostros are nice but if you can do a search and find the Puma RPT suede shoes(the ones with the spikes on the side), buy them. I have a couple of pairs and they are the sickest, and comfortable as well Pumas out there. I don't know where you live but they are hard to find in the US now.

    Colette is rubbish.

    The best store in Paris by far is L'eclaireur (the one on Rue Malher)

    Dont worry man, i was worried about that too but its no where near as shiny as it looks in the pic! I took quite a risk buying it for that much online without trying it on or anything, but it fits perfect ^_^

    Gonna have to blow some cash on these too!

    Leather jackets, Timberland shoes, or just regular black shoes are good for going out. Jeans i wear 24/7. Sometimes i don't even wear anything.

    Yeah i got my leather jacket from TK MAX, £100. Pretty expensive. I never shop at Top Man anymore, getting old and everyone wears the same Top Man hoodies and v-neck t-shirts.

    I had some chino's, now they don't even go to my ankles.

    Keep looking and good luck getting them. I get compliments wherever I go. The best Pumas I have ever owned and the color schemes are wicked.

    I wear mainly Loro Piana though I just went crazy at Brunello Cucinelli today. Other than that, I have odds and ends from whatever looks nice in Bergdorf Goodman (and of course my suits from my tailor).

    I've been buying a lot of tailored clothing for my girlfriend lately, from a women's tailor in London. Before that, we had no real affinity shopping in the BG's women's store, or Saks.

    He thinks that when he says tailor 15 times in a post it makes him sound "fancy", but it makes him come off as an amateur.

    On topic with this thread, I bought a Julius leather jacket and Common Project sneakers. In need of new jeans too, might mix it up with grey ones instead of indigo, unsure about brand.

    jeans are too restricting

    Thinking of getting a new watch, can't decide which colour to get. Thoughts anyone?

    If i were to choose between the 3, Id pick the one with the red/ the first one, but I dont line the weavy straps....I have a couple of Nixon watches. There should be more choices though right? The one thing with Nixon is that they tend not to carry a product for a long time so if you like it might as well buy it or it will be hard to find later.

    Oh, but he's down with the struggle.
    Dead people's clothes are cool. I know a woman who wore some of her dead grandmother's items. Apparently Granny was something of a tart back in the day. I was almost completely undisturbed that I found it such a turn on.
