Wanted to share a few pick ups I got recently:

Damir Doma FW10 Horse Leather Creepers: I'd been looking for these forever and finally came across them in my size on Grailed. Ended up paying $350 including shipping. The leather is really nice and they're super heavy, although from just a quick walk around my office feel surprising comfortable.

CDG Homme Deux Trousers: Found these in INA (a consignment store in NYC). First piece of CDG clothing. Don't know much about Homme Deux or what season it's from, but they fit well and the fabric is interesting (I'm not entirely sure what it is, but it feels like a wool or light denim). Only problem is it's slightly itchy.

Uniqlo Dry Color Tees: $6.90. Nothing else needs to be said.

Quality is good and they come in a variety of lengths, made in USA etc but they are pretty basic. Don't have that netting a lot of swim shorts have so I will have to watch my bollocks. Adding patches or custom options makes them pretty steep, they do ship to the UK.

What are the Columbia Rugbys like? Any of the rugbys I've tried, Patagonia, RL have always been quite thing. Got a decent Reigning Champ one last week but those Columbia are nice.

Been after a valstar suede jacket for ages but could never justify the monies, saw Zara do a copy for £159. Well happy with it

They are decent, come in slightly different weight options but generally not as thick as sweatshirt from RC or similar as you would expect. Thicker than a RL one I have.

Barbarian are also worth a look but also not available in UK, or the Rowing Blazers heavyweight ones made by Sports d'epoque (they are more of a knit style).

Some Zara stuff is great for the money. Their raw hem tshirts they did the other year were really good and probably my favourite cheap tshirt apart from the AA Hammer.

Battenwear 'Battendown' parka.

It's a bit more of a muted colour in real life but surprisingly versatile as you invariably won't be wearing orange trousers, jumpers, shirts (etc).
