I think it explained some of this but I don't recall much from the article. This might be the article you're referring to... it's the only reference to Ferrari and Ford Focus I could find on WSJ. The tires on a Camaro are the same as used on more exotic sports cars....

Bosh has said he doesn't want to play C and according to him was an impt factor in deciding where to go. 7-3 Ilgauskas is the only true center. And it's...
In terms of chinos, I never really thought of odd pants in blue until I saw a pic in a catalog where a utility shirt was paired with navy chinos and suede bucks. I thought the look was smashing. Picked up a pair and realized they were just as versatile as dark denim, yet a bit dressier. Also I find they work better with various colored jackets than khaki or grey might.
^ nicely done. although what type of outwear would go well with that shirt-pant combo?
I would label shrink-wrap that doesn't come off unless cut as properly designed.

Have not see LE Canvas shoes in person but the regular LE ones leave a lot to be desired.

For example,...

POLK HIGH! ALL-CITY. 4 touchdowns in one game! More serious though, this one from Gant seems pretty cool. Looks more vintage prep as opposed to "stuck in HS". http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Gant...avy_16582.html The guys from Street Ettiquette pull of these jackets pretty well too. You can probably find some examples on their blog.

They're ostensibly that far off the floor for the same reason a lot of public restrooms use wall-hung toilets: so it's easier to clean under them and you don't get wads of crap collecting in the corners where the partitions meet the floor. Few other reasons: - so people can tell when a stall is occupied in case...

I was eying those chinos up but I'm unsure if I should go TTS or size up. For the poster asking about fit compared to JCrews Urban Slim, the LE Canvas pants fit more like JCrew's Classic Fit. Urban slim is much more tapered. The Heritage chinos are very comparable to the JCrew broken-in chinos classic fit in...
