I subscribe to Esquire's suggestion about jewelry: one watch, one ring, and that's it (and I don't even have the latter). Besides, I generally find that anything around my neck tends to feel too heavy, no matter how light it is.
The pair in the picture is the Filson straight-leg in the rigid selvedge denim (the XX). The Fillmore is an AG jean.
EDIT: Totally my bad. According to the ES Web site, the Filson is now the Fillmore. To be honest, right now the Earnest Sewn inventory confuses me: there's the Hutch bootcut, the Filson/Fillmore straight-leg, the Hemingway full, the Rollins full straight, the Walken military pocket ...
Whenever the blades start to pull on my skin. Depending on whether I simply shave with the grain or shave with, re-lather and shave against, it takes anywhere from four to eight uses before I chuck the cartridge.
PDC GTO jeans, possibly with 1-year wash, though I've had them for so long I forgot. Â I don't feel like taking my pants off to check out the tag either.
Grey American Apparel hoodie
A generic brown belt with a belt buckle in the shape of a tape.
White Nike Cortez's
That's scary. I'm wearing the exact same thing (well, except for the tape-shaped belt buckle).
I still consider to be the best of the *mainstream* jeans, despite some very, very ill advised washes and changes in their lineup (I have a feeling that they are self destructing like the Lakers, my poor Lakers.) Â
Like the Ripper wash? (Exempt are the really cool weird stuff, like the jeans with the shadow of a fence on them.)
I'm also still a fan of PDCs, but I'm curious: when did Scott Morrison leave the company and why? Also, has anyone...
From what I hear, Earnest Sewn is dropping a lot of washes (Hutch 05, 09 and 10, as far as I've heard.) and perhaps changing the cuts as well (the Hemingway, I think.)
They've added their own version of the PDC LIT jean, with a new kind of wash (a sort of dark rust/blue shade). Didn't get to try them on, but they seemed pretty good.
The ES are slimmer, but I feel pretty comfortable in a 33 in both the Hutch and the PDC GTO. Otherwise, the Hutch is pretty damn cool: the wash and detailing are more sophisticated than the GTO, which says something, and the denim is a little more rigid, rather than the sublime softness of its PDC counterpart. My only real gripes with the Hutch are the slightly lower placement of the honeycomb whiskers on the back of the knees and the lack of a coin pocket--the GTO's is...
As a knockaround pair, 517s are decent. Crappy denim, and the rise is too high for my liking, but for $20-something, they're OK. However, I kinda regret not just saving the money towards a pair of APC Rescue jeans, which are of vastly higher quality.
