Thread: Your recent purchases

    Finally, got a new (i)Phone with a decent camera so I could took some pics of my not-so-recent last purchase:

    Forme d'Expression Fiamma scarf: "everyone should own one Forme scarf (at least)" (cit.)




    Rick Owens silk Wotan Peacot down jacket: my first down jacket!
    Super-light, but extremely warm. Get a lot of compliments for the silk: it makes the jacket look gorgeous imho.





    BBS Bamba: the more I wear them, the more I love them. Consistent leather and sole.



    BBS P13 rusted RF: maybe not the best colorway, but I get this on sale at a very nice price. The color has some red/rust/greenish shade. I'd love to get the TF, but my leg simply doesn't enter in the TF.

    Badass! Love that coat. Well, and everything else.

    @13we2 it's the SS17 iteration: if I'm not wrong, the exact model is P13RF-F1944 in BLACK RUST (depending on ambient's light, they may have a rust/red/greenish shade).
    As for the rest I confirm about the heavy waxing and the stiffness, while some recent model are less waxed and more "painted".
    My only problem with P13 is that my hips could probably fit a Medium, but my thigh reclame a Large: so the RF fits a tad large (or not so fitted as I'd like) on legs, while the TF... well, I really can't event enter my leg in the TF size Large so I'll never know :D
    [ADD] so, why bother?! ;))

    @Faust: thanks :)

    Well sorry then please totally ignore what I said above. Couldn't see the rust shades in the pics. I have the XTF from SS17 also in black rust, they actually feel much more flexible and comfortable than the AW1516 RF one I meantioned above because of the stretch to it.

    Yeah big hip and slim leg is the problem common to all bbs jeans, I'm sure you are not the only one experiencing it, just find a balance in between. But I guess since RF does work for you why bother for the TF? :)

    its funny because in that photo it certainly does not capture the way it looks at all, i had the same issue with my pair as in someone was asking about them and on my phone it looked like regular vinyls lmao.

    edit: new pic very much captures it :)

    Is anyone here aware of the brand "Charles and Keith"? I have seen their shops around Asia before and the bags seem to be really nice quality and it has an affordable price tag too. What can you say about the quality in the long run?

    can you share the inside tags for the Ruffo Research piece, sometimes I find the pieces with the same color/ style tag but it will just Say Ruffo for the woven label and the inside The inside care and content tag will have research.
    thanks!

    I bought a Rick Owens dark dust sequin wool jacket, guidi back zip ankle boots, rick owens leather & suede waist tie jacket, rick owens ruhlmann boots, rick owens silk & leather zip up bomber, rick owens lace up naska leather jacket and givenchy shark tooth open toe sandals. all from consignment and/or ebay. retail value of said items would be around approx $17K CDN and I paid approx total of $2700 with shipping and duty tax included :D









    I rarely buy new, only if it's a must have piece.

    And as a bonus; the womens silk velvet cape from Mastodon which I bought when I was drunk but don't regret it.

    gorgeous purchases & hello from TDOT!

    Can I ask where you got this? I've been looking for one forever in a similar fabric and haven't been able to locate one. It seems buyers rarely pick up on it, and it's not offered every season.

    Thanks!

    How do they fit? I'm thinking of getting one myself but i'm not sure if i should size up or not. I have a very broad shoulders and all my BBS leather i've owned so far had been very tight around that area.

    Sure!
    Got this from Yoox, last december, but seems rather hard to find. If I'm not wrong, Spence had one.

    Yesterday, Yoox had the nylon one on sale at less than Euro 600, but I have to say the silk looks gorgeous: I always receive an incredible/unexpected amount of compliments for this jacket...

    It’s a great jacket and looks very comfy. Always makes me think of this:

    I really love this season bamba/salomon.. The colors look incredible: I especially like the one you got and the hi-top one in the same color (which I only have seen on Archivesf).
    How's the fitting? I'm a true sz.45/12 and seems like only Jades has a sz.45...
    It's been a long time since I didn't buy low sneakers: would you mind to post a fit pic?

    PS: this season's bamba/solomon in green/desert/orange seems rather hard to find: is BBS strategy to not saturate the market or is this a buyers' choice? Personally, I'd bought a ton of this...

    PPS: yes, that jacket makes me feel a bit Homer, sometimes :D

    I really love urban zen but i'm definitely not paying retail for the clothing. it may be worth retail, as quality is superb, but i have yet to see a piece i'd bend over backwards to pay (except maybe a shearling fur suede coat from them, but alas it was like 10K). i managed to find this suede bomber type jacket for 70% off (originally around $2600). I love it.
