6'3" here and they fit me fine Well, if they were 1/2" shorter in the sleeves they'd be too short... Maybe I have minor trex genetics.
Can anyone recommend some non-CM linen (or other summery, breathable) pants for someone who normally wears a 34" inseam? I'm having trouble finding anything that's in between colonel sanders or hyper cropped 3/4 pants. Black preferred but not being too choosy on that point right now!
4.2 today. Tried doing the "breathe shallowly every two steps" thing, always breathing on my right which is where the stitch comes in. Seems to have helped a bit - managed faster times today and Tuesday with only slight twinges. Have the hardest time moderating my pace though. Every mile I think I've slowed down, then the pace time is the same as the mile before!
4.1 with crazy headwind for 1.5 in the middle. Anyone have side stitch remedies or avoidance techniques? I get it all the time as I approach my natural pace of about 7:30 min/mi, and have to slow down despite not being short of breath. Have tried breathing in on alternate sides of stride, varying level of hydration, time since eating, all with no results.
I'm wearing a pair of the ST's in 29 right now and was in the same boat as you. First cold wash they shrunk noticeably through the leg (not much on inseam) and waist. Waist has stretched out a little, but not past original point. Thighs and seat stayed shrunk which was great for me. This is after at least a couple of months of nearly every day wear.
Oh and in general there's a great strip of restaurants on Randolph street in the west loop. Favorites of mine are Maude's and Avec. Also JP Graziano makes a mean sub if you're there around lunchtime.
There's a place called Bad Wolf Coffee a couple of L stops west of Wrigley. It's basically a one-man shop run by the ex-pastry chef of Schwa. I've never had anything less than amazing bread and pastries from there: the Kouign Amann and Caneles deserve special mention. Try to get there before lunch, stuff comes out of the oven between 10 and 11 and doesn't last long. It's mad casual, with metal band posters on the walls and only has a single high table to lean on.
I have a pair of Big John black Slim Tapereds, with the black/indigo/white threads. They've been worn almost daily for close to 3 months now, with one wash after I spilled coffee on them. So far the only noticeable fading is: -Some whiskering around the crotch, I think this is mainly from me crossing my legs a lot and the folded parts rubbing. Looks like ordinary whiskering, but white on black. No noticeable indigo. -Heavy outlining on the front pocket where I keep my...
Are these the standard ruri denim that Big John sell elsewhere? UO description is "gloss blue" and photos look a lot more saturated and lighter in color than pics elsewhere.
I asked for opinions on the Geller Canadian coat a while ago, when a few people suggested the wider body was not as weird as I thought at the time. Was about to head to the tailors with the intent to trim the body down a little when I thought another round of (much better quality) pictures might be in order. [[SPOILER]] The back of the shoulders look a bit large, but this might go away with an extra layer underneath. There's actually a size smaller still in stock at NMWA...
