    Yeah, the shoes I bought are actually black, with small carbon fiber pieces around the heel, they are actually kind of cool and the only pair of shoes I have that I can comfortably drive my car with.  All my other shoes I either have to keep my foot at a weird angle or take my shoes off in the car.

    But I'm cheap, I won't pay full price for the designer stuff, I hate shopping but I will walk around to all the different stores to find the same thing on sale somewhere else.

    These are the shoes I got, Trionfo Low. They are like the Speed Cats but not fireproof.'

    Banana Republic is by far my favorite shop.  Simple and Stylish.

    A year or two ago I got a nice jacket for Christmas.  I somehow lost it.  Last week I went in and bought another.

    Unfortunately, talking with Charles yesterday I found out, we now both own the same jacket.  Tongue Out

    what annoys the hell out of me is people think i'm trendy because i only wear puma's

    as if i just started wearing puma's NOW

    they are simply the most comfortable shoes ever, i've been buying myself a new pair of puma californias every year for about 6 years. i'm just now ready to start experimenting with the other puma models. looking into the romas or the speed cats.

    Ha, I WISH I knew what happened to it.  Charles wears a large and I wear a medium.

    They are beautiful. I haven't seen them in black (only in red).

    I'm not buying a brand because of the name. I was in a boutique a few days ago (last week or so) where they had a lot D&G and such stuff. I didn't buy one, because all were weird and not winter like (I mean I can't have something with big holes - as a pullover - in winter).

    I'm buying stuff if it's comfortable. I like puma shoes, because they are comfortable and easy. No clumpsy something. I like diesel, because those are the only jeans (well CK is also similar) that are wearable. I tried so many different brands (even H&M jeans) and I looked like in a potatoe bag...


    Cothing is fun and buying clothes is even more fun. It's like hunting... I like it.

    One more race and finally we'll get rid of a german driver on an italian car.

    *Then* I'll be able to root for Ferrari again.

    (no offense to the germans here, I simply can't stand Schumacher, the man)

    ... never.

    I suppose it is lucky for me that given I have no sense of style, any remote temptation to look at or find something new from such place is quickly squashed given that such boutiques cannot fit (think big AND tall), so instead I stick with what fits and what isn’t all that expensive.

    Although in some respects I am sad to say that may not always be the case as I’m currently 70lbs down since May... I may be able to seriously look at and fit in to such things one day (*shudder*). In the meantime though I do need to get into a store and buy some new pants as I’m getting sick of drilling holes in my belts.

    I will admit that there is one specialty clothing item I wear... it’s rare I’ll wear anything but Red Wing Boots due to just how comfy they are, especially my favorite, the 875:

    personally i like the thrill of the find - especially if used

    *way back when - being cool meant the Clash = used clothes

    I cared alot more about clothes as a musician than as a designer - but i still like stuff that's not off the shelf - and definately NO LOGOS - plain! Smiley
