^ Maybe you could find someone to knit custom for you ... a yarn shop might be able to make a recommendation.

^Good idea, but I'd rather have a very fine knit fitted turtleneck sweater and unfortunately that can't be done by hand I think. I hope Rick will have a nice one in the near future, because his bodies are usually rather long.

I've been a bit quite as well lately. I have done some sale shopping, i got:
  • white linnen collarless shirt
  • High top grey nubuck sneakers (monogrey, including sole)
  • loose fitting cropped trousers in navy and in olive
  • replacement for my Rivieras that had a hole in them after a few years
  • two t-shirt and a short sleeved denim shirt


For the first time in my life I've grown out of some trousers (considering my frame not such a bad thing) so I suddenly need to replace about half my bottoms because they don't fit anymore, on the plus side I'm able to wear the other half without a belt. I ordered a pair of new jeans and a pair of green chinos on you, one size up form what I use(d) to wear so hopefully those will fit. While searching for the chinos (I really like the fit of Acne, and have had lots of wear out of the pairs I already own) I came across a version of the Canada scarf I already own in grey and love but in white tartan that I couldn't pass.

Nymphea Rick Owens seems like a goof place to look, it's the first brand that came in mind with your description. I like the idea of a really thin long turtleneck.

eizhowa Hopefully the cobbler will live up to your standards.

fashionista-ta What kind of chair have you bought?

Betinapple Usually jeans stretch a bit, but not that much in my experience. Plus evert time you wash it it will be tight(er) again, so you'll have to be willing commit to that.

^ You've been very busy

This is my Thos. Moser chaise ... I think I mentioned back when I ordered? It will be tiger maple with purple leather. I'll take a picture when it arrives ...

Ah the therapy lounge chair, now I remember. Curious what it will look like irl, so looking forward to the picture.

And I was a bit surprised when summing everything up as well, it was/is a bit more then intended (and I didn't even include the custom suit I had made when on vacation ). The sale is my main shopping period and that combined with needing some replacements leads to this...

Well I don't count my national costume as a 4-5 piece and when women in my country wear their national costume, the men usually wear suits. So in the spirit of equality, I think the suit should not be included. Feel better now?

(Speaking of national costumes I am saving up for a beautiful green one that I have wanted for years Well, that or a Chanel bag. Might try to save up for both.)

Most girls get the national costume as a gift from their family at the age of 14-15, which they are intended to have for the rest of their lives. Very few guys would fit into a national costume they were given at that age for very long... But they are comming back in style for men!

They are easy to make larger horizontally They are supposed to fit you when you are pregnant, for example.

^ That's an extremely handy quality in a garment. I bet Fewormany wishes he had pants like that ...

^Aren't we all?

My new suit doesn't go with the (only) pair of dress shoes I have at the moment, so that goes on the list for upcoming months.

Noooo, not all, I'm not joining the club! I can still fit in a pair of jeans from high school, I have to admit it's just a little bit tight.

Nice haul Fewormany!

I'm going to try a pair of Balenciaga ankle boots.
So far I haven't bought much since January:
- Black sweater on sale
- Short lightweight rain coat
- Small silk scarf
- 2 Uniqlo jackets ultra light down
