I had the same thought with the gear I picked up. If it's fake but the quality is good and the price is low enough, who cares. Had a 'Paul Smith' corduroy blazer delivered earlier this week, cost me about £9 (was more, but the sleeve lining had a couple of tares so I got a partial refund from the seller). Quality and fit-wise it seems genuine. However, I doubt it is. The neck tag is very faded and certainly doesn't look like it ever said 'Paul Smith', I suspect the previous owner sewed the 'Paul Smith, Made in England' patch in at a later date. Doesn't really bother me though, it would have cost me a pretty penny in most vintage clothes stores, even without the Paul Smith tag.
Some navy chinos, I a grey cashmere v-neck sweater, midnight blue cords, red braces, some red boot socks (I relent on socks trend, you all win this one!) and heavy knit pom-pom toque (I don't know what non Canadians call that).
I also bought this, though it isn't clothing, but it is fashion: http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...81037193_n.jpg
@WINTERSHORTS Hair looks great! I've just had mine done, from a floppish fringe to a nice quiff.
What do you guys think of this one? I have similar H&M shirt which is more red and blue, but this one is Paul Smith,found it for reasonable price, just cant decide does it like every other shirt out there?
Yes, I like your cut too, Billy. My hair is straight so I went more Jimmy Darmody from Boardwalk Empire. Any suggestions for intense hair product, preferably with a mat finish.
@Mogli, a little busy, but could be worse.
As for the hair product, have a look through this thread. 'American Crew' works well.
Winter, i know the question wasn't directed to me, BUT! I've used like a decent amount of hair products and always seem to fall back into buying American Crew, very safe and good option. Heard using sea salt spray is a good shout also? Never used it myself.
The sale on Asos sorta made me go out and purchase way nearly double on what i set out to buy. I bought double so i guess it's all good. Picked up:
Red chambray shirt from Penfield
Pair of Nudie jeans - my first pair from them. Gonna see what all the fuss is about.
Brown merino crew neck jumper from Fred Perry
Red v-neck merino jumper from Fred Perry
Can i ask of you lot to give me some 100% true, no holding back, honest opinions on what i've just bought please? Hoping to pick up a pair of Grensons or Red Wings also after christmas is out the way. Bloody murder is all its been.
Also accepting opinions on what to wear with the clobber i've bought, get a new angle an ideas from what i've already imagined.
Got a Holland Esquire Tweed Blazer in TK Maxx for £80. RRP £495. Same trip, my GF got a £300 All Saints coat for £30. Madness.
The shirt is, in my opinion, eurgh. The rest is nice though.
Found the Asos sale pretty underwhelming personally. Some good bargains in funny sizes, but the rest of the stuff I had my eye on only has meagre reductions that have been attainable before with student discount/discount codes.
