   I'll just leave this here: http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/pembroke-tan http://www.pediwear.co.uk/crockett/products/5550.php http://www.robertold.co.uk/crockett-jones-pembroke-boot-g-fitting.html Admittedly, the above are described as "tan scotch grain", but it's not a terribly light tan.
 Excellent idea - let's tar and feather an entire brand based on two examples posted by strangers on the internet. Every brand makes mistakes. Some make more than others. I haven't heard of Carmina making many mistakes and the examples above appear to be anomalies. Even Edward Green, John Lobb Paris and other much-vaunted brands make mistakes sometimes. Ultimately, it's how those brands deal with the (hopefully very small) number of mistakes that they make, that makes the...
 Yes, Uniqlo used to make Kaihara selvedge denim jeans in Japan (ie Japanese-made jeans, made from Japanese denim). Nowadays, they still use Japanese selvedge denim, but the jeans are made in Bangladesh or somewhere similar.
 I was so, so tempted by those but after thinking about it, I ended up deciding to give it a miss due to the heavy stitching. If they were a re-run of the split-toe bluchers that they used to have, with the finer stitching, I'd leap on it in a heartbeat.
   I've got a pair of an older Uniqlo model of their regular fit straight cut Kaihara denim selvedge jeans and they are great. I've been wearing them for 9 or 10 years now and they are still going strong. I'm not a denimhead, but for my money, if the cut fits you well, then they're a great option.
^ It doesn't look too bad, but conversely, it could also be better.    I'm not so sure about it being too big in the shoulders - it actually looks as though it might be a little tight in the shoulders. If you look at a couple of the pics, you can see that there's a little dimple right up at the sleevehead, above where the sleeve touches your deltoid muscle. This can be a sign that the shoulders are a little small.  Others who know more about tailoring than do I will...
  For a moment there, I thought that you'd managed to dig up a pic of a young @fxh!  Seriously, though, I haven't seen nor read Inherent Vice, but I've read a couple of other books by Pynchon - The Crying of Lot 49 and Vineland. I've also read about half of Gravity's Rainbow twice, but haven't managed to push through to the end.  I suspect that Geoffrey Firmin, LonerMatt and California Dreamer might be able to chime in on Pynchon, too. 
^ Definitely the first one, in the mini polka-dot.
 But have you tried pushing its buttons?!?!
 I agree with this, particularly the bolded part, and I think that PSG expressed it very well.
