    So part 1 of my vente-privee order came today (I did 3 orders in 3 days:rolleyes:).

    It was the 1912 Sunset henley and boxer shorts. Very cool. Some of the Sunset stuff comes in really great packaging:

    H&M has a new banded collar shirt in 2 different vintage-y striped patterns. They look pretty good, except they have cheap branded buttons. $24.99.

    Just got my 2 final vente-privee orders today!! I'm so thrilled. It feels like Christmas!
    The 1920's wool pants have the boxing ticket too. And my jeans had the correct waist/ length!:D

    Update on my H&M French Worker jacket. I have been wearing it hard the last little while. I also replaced the buttons with some vintage black cats eye buttons.

    Also wearing a Klaxon Howl navy watch cap, Klaxon Howl California Slim 15oz selvedge denim, and some Katahdin Iron Works boots. Sorry for the pissed off look. I was standing in for a light test on a shoot today.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up too high for H&M. They generally produce total ill fitting crap. Occasionally they will let something nice slip through the cracks though. Luckily the things Im into are never the type of stuff their typical customer is into so I usually have no problem finding things in my size.
