After a trip to Last Call needless markup to look @ what's been reduced this week & trying on an awesome yet $270 waistcoat(didn't buy it!) to find an awesome 1/2 of 1/2 of 1/2 so about $30 in the end equally if not cooler waistcoat. Also, after looking @ some terribly over worked , distessed, & badly cut jeans(notice i didn't say high end designer denim, ie. CRAP!) On that note is i'll go on the record that i still feel that there's an emperor's new clothes mentality when it comes to better to designer ready to wear. I decided to pull three items that i wear all the time that no matter what you add to them can be awesome no budget staples. tshirt, jeans, & boots. i will readily admit to a passion for vans & nikes(courtforce, & vandels), but with the right jewelrey,accessories, and blazer/coat(for evening and out) the following three items can be dressed up or down where need arrises & they are fairly inexpensive & look classic.(FOR ME ALL IN BLACK!(of course) but for most folks color is fine just not on me!
