I'll be studying in London this semester and don't want to look like a tourist.

I'd like to invest in a Burberry trench this fall, but I'm torn between a traditional or more modern style.

I want a pair of raw Levi's 501s, but I know they're supposed to shrink. Do I wash them before wearing? Or buy a size up?

I've been seeing a lot of jackets and sweaters with elbow patches lately. I like the look of them. What do you think?
