Some good stuff been posted last year but what was the absolute favourite thing you bought?

Mine sneaked in right at the end of the year but worn it almost non-stop since.



Absolutely love the style of this and the material is amazing.

To be honest, given I’ve spent most of my time in 2021 WFH/lazing around the flat, my best (or at least “most worn”) purchases have been a lot of overpriced basics - hoodies, T,s, sweats and joggies - from The Real McCoys.

Out of the lot my 14oz black ballpark hoodie has probably seen the most wear. It’s super heavy and warm (but soft and comfortable) so I can’t really go wrong.

Nothing much more exciting than that this year. Maybe the RM vest I picked up from Timmbo. I’ve not had that long enough to say how much wear I’ll get out of it but so far, so good.

Boring one and not really fashion but Hoka Kaha Goretex boots. Bought them for hiking but wear them any time it’s wet or a bit moody out and they’re amazing. No breaking in, warm and more comfortable than any pair of trainers I own.
I don’t think I’ve bought an item of clothing in the last 5 years I’ve been 100% satisfied with so makes a nice change.

I don't usually buy clothes online but I made an exception for this which I was looking for and found at Kafka.


I just need the matching slippers now.

I purchased over 30 pairs of trainers last year, and these are by far the best of the bunch. I haven’t stopped wearing them.



Tempted to dye my all white pair. Seen some great dyed pairs.

Had some great buys in 2021.

3 pairs Nike Air Max BW’s were best normal trainers released for a long time for me.

John Elliott Edition One Runner are the comfiest trainers I’ve ever had. Got grey and black versions.

JMM Torino in platinum are just unreal.

SISP Moleskin Gilet.

Cool

Favourites for me this year were

AM 90 Infrareds and Spruce limes—Nike really smashed it on the shape etc of the OG remastered releases.

Spellbound coverall

OrSlow Type 3 / 1960s jacket

Yuketen x Bureau Maine Guide Ox

An unworn pair of the Flat Head / Real Japan Blues / Corlection colab jean from years ago

Also, shout out to the Reebok x Story MFG—probably wore them more than any other shoes this year

Really liking both pairs of Folk Assembly pants that I got recently. Also picked up a couple of Beams plus hoodies in the sale that got a lot of wear.
