when i saw the jacket in the pics from other places thread, i wanted the jacket, didnt know what it was, could have been visvim/ burbery / supreme / insert trendy fan boy label / or whatever, i just liked the jacket.
the fact it cost £25 has nothing to do with anything, it could have cost £300 i still would have bought it (dependent on materials)
would you tell someone on here not to buy American apparel? or not to shop in H&M because they like something in there?
the quality is fairly good and i seem to have my clothes stolen from me in bars, so ill wear this so places and i wont cry if it goes missing.

on one hand you have a jacket you wear maybe once a week for a season… on the other hand you have a watch you wear all day / every day for many many years and maybe all your life.
not the same argument

kinda similar to the aesthetics arguement in the watch thread. someone should create a thread.
a nice looking jacket is a nice looking jacket, no one in the real world knows its price, and never will.

I was commenting on quality more than price.
Obviously sneaker52 (and anyone else for that matter) can do whatever they want with their money and it may actually be the best constructed jacket in the world, made from the finest materials, but I highly doubt that's the case. It just seems to me that if you are concerned about quality, which I am, and would assume that anyone who owns Tenderloins, Visvims, Red Wings etc is also concerned about that, then why would you buy something that is probably poor(er) quality? And it's not like you can talk about buying those things purely for the aesthetic quality, as you can basically buy budget versions of all of that or very similar from the high street.

And I would tell people not to shop in American Apparel, I hate it (their adverts are good though) and think it's shit. Whether they listen to me or not is another matter. Same goes for H&M (they are not redeemed in any way by their adverts).

so you take everything in your wardrobe that seriously? its a £25 jacket that looks good on, it costs less than a round at the bar. dont worry, i wont be wearing it to LFW.
apart from some AA tops and some cdg x h&m that jacket is the only non designer item in my whole wardrobe.

Personally think Tenderloin is quite a cool brand name. No cock/pussy connotation to me

u mean corefighter? seeing as gundam holds the same position in japeansee popular culture as star wars does in ours i think its a pretty cool reference. Tenderloin is one of the cooler brand names ive ever heard. word is Kei of tenderloin and tet from w)taps both spent time studying in the bay area/SF and were both inspired by the tenderloin district of the city. in fact if you look at older wtaps insignia theres a GPS waypoint code on it. if you put it into a GPS the waypoint is the tenderloin.

Cockfighter of Bermondsey is a UK fashion brand stocked in Selfridges, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm//330638364134/ to me the euphemism' too close to man version of scissor sisters (a sexual act involving 2 women enabling them 2 grind pussies against each other), but wot you said about Tenderloin may well be true, outside niche fashion circles, Asia and SF noone will get that reference. They'll think loin, reproductive organ (cock/pussy again).

from Wikipedia

There are a number of stories about how the Tenderloin got its name. One says it is a reference to an older neighborhood in New York with the same name and similar characteristics. Another is a reference to the neighborhood as the "soft underbelly" (analogous to the cut of meat) of the city, with allusions to vice and corruption, especially graft. There are also some legends about the name, probably folklore, including that the neighborhood earned its name from the words of a New York City police captain, Alexander S. Williams, who was overheard saying that when he was assigned to another part of the city, he could only afford to eat chuck steak on the salary he was earning, but after he was transferred to this neighborhood he was making so much money on the side soliciting bribes that now he could eat tenderloin instead.[2][3] Another version of that story says that the officers who worked in the Tenderloin received a "hazard pay" bonus for working in such a violent area, and thus were able to afford the good cut of meat. Yet another story, also likely apocryphal, is that the name is a reference to the "loins" of prostitutes.

Yes. But I think it's because during the week, I'm in my work clothes so my casual stuff becomes quite a luxury. My work stuff just gets fucked up really quickly, so I want my casual gear to be good quality, well made etc. as I end up spending way more on it (which is actually stupid as I wear it much less than my work stuff, which costs less).
I still stand by my previous statement about menswear not being throw-away though.

Norse Projects Nunk jacket came in the post today. Copped from Studio Homme with the 30% discount. Excellent service from them as well, they reactivated the code for me the next day as I missed it before. Cool Really happy with it, excellent fit, sturdy as fuck and great lining. Definitely recommended. csb. Socks are Universal Works and the Supreme hat is for Zoom.

This. Spend far more on gear that I only get to wear at the weekend rather than what I wear for the other 5 days of the week.

Makes no sense when you think about it.
