i am proud of your growing coat collection, at the rate you are acquiring it will quickly overtake mine.

i've a:
unbranded brand deep indigo denim jacket
gap olive 2-in-1 parka
north face blue/black puffy coat
uniqlo long flowy lightweight black thing
indice studio staff parka/raincoat in black
plaid bomber by junya watanabe for comme des garcons homme FW '05
rosen o-ren batwing one-piece drapey monstrosity in black boiled wool
rick owens blistered lamb from moody/FW14

also been accumulating bunches of rick stuff from clearance sales & secondhand. got an island button-down, cropped astaires and some sock sneaks. hoping the crops make it in before the weekend so i can dress in head to toe rick for the big night out in boston :xx:

noice. i have very particular tastes. i like wool, canvas and leather. i don't like down jackets or polyesters. the worst thing in the world is PU leather, i bought some PU shoes back in the day and they severely disappointed me

i appreciate nice wools and leathers but on the whole i am pretty impartial when it comes to fabrics i guess, as long as i enjoy the look of a piece and can work it into an outfit i'm happy to wear it. wouldn't bother with any faux leathers though, i held out until i had cash to splash for a nice used leather jacket & i'm quite glad i did

i am particularly fond of the boiled wool coat, i've got a pair of fuck off huge black wool hakama from the same designer lined with silk. almost impossible to wear 'cuz it's basically like a big pleated dress except with legs, but they're top quality and supremely comfortable.

i just like the simplicity and animal heritage of wool and leather. and canvas and cotton are just simple and good. i still have polyester and other fibres etc. but minimal and phasing them out. i also have an oilskin cat and coat for the wet weathers, much better than plastic raincoats

Hey stormy I need to order another pair of ultaboosts because as I said a few pages back mine have holes in the tops. They are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever had. I tried going back to my new balance but they are so big and clunky and made my feet hurt. Do you know of any promo codes right now because I’d really rather not pay $180 again

Thanks

hmm the core blacks might be tough to find on sale since its a staple. will keep looking but i haven't found anything so far.

adidas has a bunch of UBs on sale right now, core black isn't one of them however but there's a fair few neutrals on sale that will work with any basic outfit:

https://www.adidas.com/us/ultraboost-shoes/CM8110.html

end has a few close-ish options as well, pretty much all the uncaged & laceless versions but they're every bit as comfy as the regular UBs:

https://www.endclothing.com/us/sale/sne ... yle=420784

i buy from them pretty frequently. just important to note a couple things if you get one of these; they're listed in UK sizing so go one down from your normal size (e.g., i wear a US10 so i'd get a UK9). they also don't cover return shipping so make sure you're happy with what you're ordering because it's a bitch to ship back to the UK.

mr porter's also got a bunch of deep discounts at the moment but lots of sizes out of stock, probably worth a look:
