  Nice, I have the grey jacket. IMO, it looks great with a scarf underneath and the collar popped.
My 201's   Hot pre-soak. Got them hemmed, tailor took off ~6inches, the leg hem is 1/2 inch wider than the original hem. In my opinion, the hem is too large and it's almost a bootcut style.   The jeans fit good. The fit is relaxed, but I would have prefer a slimmer fit. The pants bulge in the crotch area whenever I sit. It crumples up too much at the knee, and from the knee down it looks rather baggy. I guess I have to get them tapered *sigh* I'm going to hot...
I got the same exact starter kit too. I'm sorry if this has been asked, but what's the difference between the Creme and Conditioner - which one to use first? Should I use this kit before applying sno-seal/obenauf (still waiting for it in the mail)? Should I polish my shoes first before getting a half-sole topy? I've been wearing them in wet weather for about 2 weeks now.
^Yes, that was what I meant thanks. Hopefully the tailor can use the same color stitching as the original hem.   Initial soak let off a lot of indigo and the waist shrunk roughly 1 inch.
@ boognish - awesome jeans, we demand more pictures!   Speaking of 201's, mine finally arrived in the mail. They fit a bit baggy on me, hence the shrink to fit. I'm going to do a pre-soak in the bathtub, while wearing the jeans in hot water. Hopefully that will get most of the shrinkage because I have to hem them as I'm only 5"7.   Question: Since there is slight taper, should I keep the original hem when getting them hemmed?
My slim fit Twill Chinos came in today. Thighs are bit tight but other than that the fit is good. I'm thinking of exchanging it for 1 size up.   This is my first pair of chinos, do they stretch at all?  I've been wearing them around the house and there's already noticeable honeycombs.
  Orient Sun & Moon watch   Which color should I choose?
