RE: Fashion and Style Lounge
For gloves, you should first decide which leather you want. I prefer pecary but if you don’t like pecary skin, look at suede or deerskin or lambskin (or carpincho but you won’t find it in Paris)

I you want thin gloves you should take them unlined, or with silk lining.

My favorite shops in Paris are http://www.1000gants.com (rue Saint Honoré) and http://www.acaba.fr (rue des Petits Champs). Vente Privée and BazarChic also have regular sales on gloves.

Wait for the sales and buy everything 40% or 50% off. However, you can also find great deals online year round.

I agree that that particular color isn't aesthetically pleasing, but let's be honest, most coats aren't made to be stylish, and if they are stylish, they're usually expensive (e.g. Moncler).

I'm all for aesthetically pleasing apparel, but there isn't much of a choice when it comes to coats without breaking the break.

Scour eBay for vintage items, like I did below.

I honestly hate overpriced garbage like Canada Goose, where I'm paying for a brand name instead of a nice looking jacket. I'm not sure what to do now.

I'm going to beg to differ here.

This British Warm coat arrived in the post yesterday. It fits almost perfectly (apart from the sleeve length) and feels like a suit of armour. Aesthetically, it's got an aristocratic, even commanding appearance to it, and it feels that way when I'm wearing it.

When worn this morning at -2°C, I was perfectly toasty, and I imagine it would be completely appropriate several degrees lower once I throw on more layers underneath including thermal underwear (I've worn a coat made of the same fabric in -20°C.

I generally don't prefer to wear parkas in town, anyway. The length is perfect, given that I ride my bike a lot.

Interesting U.S. brand I just got a new wallet from, understated stuff without logos all over it but full grain leather and practical designs. Leatherology:

I might get their laptop brief as a new cabin bag since Travelpro has royally screwed the design on theirs.

Looked on the forum, but I couldn't find anything.

Could someone post a guide on buying/wearing khakis/dockers/chinos?

Too much drama for a hit it and quit it brutha such as myself
