Get the Burberry sweater in black! The applique looks much nicer on the black one.

Rick Owens' sizing for women tends to tight, not sure about the men's stuff. Yay to the turtleneck, but only if you can get a good price for it; it's just a turtleneck, after all...

Mens stuff is tight with very long and skinny arms as well.

Yay to the Rick Owens, Nay to the burberry.

I like the black burberry more. But I kinda agree with caroline at the same time. If you want to stand out from the crowd or you want to make a statement pick the red, if you want to blend in the black is better.

I'm diggin the red burberry better. The flowers on the black one remind me of Easter, where as the flowers on the red one just look more retro/ vintage

Should I grab this black leather Helmut Lang blazer for $400, or should I save my money for something else? Such a terrible picture of it...

Im not really liking the leather blazer, Alex.

It just seems very ordinary to me and I'm not a huge fan of the cut.

With the money that costs you could save for the Dem boots or something nicer.

Lang may be known for his minimalism but I think that he is by no means thet master of it.

I'm with raijin - I say nay. The cut should be sleek or special enough to warrant a purchase at even that discounted price (we can't really see if the leather is as beautiful as one would hope, which would be another factor), but really, with a cut this normal, how different would it be from a Kenneth Cole or Banana Republic leather blazer?

Yeah, I was thinking it looked really normal, but I wasn't sure if it was the picture or my computer or just me. I guess I was just trying to convince myself that it was nice.
