MOK - never would have believed the matching pants, vest, and jacket would work well in that olive ripstop....but I love it!
Recently discovered bolt-action pens and they are fantastic to play with while doing monotonous office tasks. I've been using a fountain pen for years (Pelikan M215) but have just started using these TiBolt and Maxmadco bolt-action pens just recently. There are some decent writing Parker style refills out there and the bolt-action is just a great thing to fiddle with during the day.

EG spring/summer lately has been a pretty fun and playful take on things, which is cool, I admire a lot of the clothes and looks but they just aren't my thing. Their fall/winter lines are almost always more in fitting with my personal style and I tend to do most of my shopping then. Really, only thing I've loved from this season so far is the herringbone workshirt which has a really nice feel and weight to the...
Best Buys: Alden x Context Roy boots Red Wing 8146 boots (these were the biggest surprise, bought them for winter beaters and turns out I just love them) Needles denim workshirt (wear this pretty much all weekend every weekend since I picked it up from Nepenthes when I was in NYC over Thanksgiving, current favorite shirt) I didn't really have many bad buys, I didn't buy a whole lot this past year and most of what I did buy has worked out pretty well. I'm sure there...
You should post this in the Alden thread, it doesn't need it's own thread. But to answer your question, yes, they are worth it. I have a pair and they are great boots. The crepe sole makes them particularly comfortable to walk in.
