    Thoughts on garment storage for medium / long term? I have a number of pieces I wear maybe once a year. Currently have most pieces hanging (blazers, jackets etc) in Muji garment slip covers, but they are intended only to protect from moths and as they are solid white I can’t distinguish what’s inside (Muji also says they expire in a year after use). Suggestions for proper storage?

    Acid free cardboards, filled with also acid free silk paper.
    That is how they stock fragile/precious garments in museums or archive rooms

    Takes lot of space, pretty expensive. (for what it is).
    The room you stock your garments in also play a role. Temperature/humidity must be controlled.

    Hey guys. Im curious if anyone here knows any alternatives to online second hand platforms like depop, grailed, etc or a forum with classified ads for Japanese people. I know they have yahoo auctions but i guess they must have some platform specificaly for clothing.

    What do you mean by tricky? You may just have to replace it.

    Was thinking it was oxidation from it been redyed/stained causing the double zip to be difficult to lock at the bottom but on closer inspection the base of the zipper taping has started to fray slightly. Not unsurprising as I've had and regularly worn the jacket for 7 years now, probably not much I can do about it besides replace the entire zipper if the time comes.

    Context would help. What sort of piece is it? LG is full grain lamb so maybe something related?

    Need some help dating these Rick Owens boots—I can tell they're the mega turbo wedges, but I've never seen a pair in snakeskin before, and the models I've seen from FW14 and FW10 had the signature button clasp at the top of the zipper, and these seemingly do not. Any help would be appreciated!

    Yeah, I think the T-shirt for man is proper, while for girls, it's too thick.
