I think Vox has a pair of black vintage made in the USA weejuns. I have a pair of those myself. I think you can wear them Ivy style, with chinos and no socks - maybe with jeans too. Probably with a casual summer suit. That said, I don't really wear them much. I like the idea more than the execution, and being a california boy I generally wear sneakers (vans) or sand suede in the situations that would suit the black weejuns.
It's insanely hot and humid in LA, I wore 4711 in my search for the most light and refreshing scent in my cabinet. It usually doesn't last at all so I bathed in it, then sprayed a bunch on my shirt. No matter, it's long gone.
I'm wearing Grey Vetiver today. I've had this decant for a while and thought I didn't like it, but today I changed my mind. It's a modern take on Guerlain, kinda. More simple, but still nice, and it's very persistent. It's lasted all day in extreme heat.
Is that suit glen check? It looks a bit slimmer than your usual, but it does look great. It could also be that you're slimmer. Lots of swimming?
Seeing these last pictures of the SVB suit with the trousers hanging nice and straight sells it, I think it looks pretty good. But I do think we've yet to see it accessorized and styled to maximum effect. The shirt collar is the biggest outlier. A point collar would be better. And I think it would work well tieless and open necked for casual weekend vibes.
Not sure if I can make it to the sale but I love that building.
See, I hate driving into Hollywood because of the traffic, so I find W. Adams to be more convenient. It's not a bad space they have over there either. I'm expecting that neighborhood to change a lot over the next few years too. I'm way out in the sticks of Mt. Washington (though Obama is over here today fucking up the traffic) so maybe that colors my opinion.
The Denim Doctor/HTC is down on Adams now. But if you want a cheap repair job and don't care about making it artisanal or some shit like that, most dry cleaners have a tailor on staff that will do a perfectly adequate job.
Yeah I'm not sure that fabric drapes the right way to fully take advantage of a relaxed cut. I think the trousers need more structure - either a slimmer top block with a gentle flare (that might be hard for a tailor to get right) of some more taper below the knee, as you've been advised. I'd be tempted to try the former option though if you think your tailor can nail it.
I've definitely gotten rid of more clothes than I've acquired for a few years now. There are things that I'd like, but I still have too much stuff. I was actually taking a break from cleaning out my closet when I saw this.
