Yeah, I saw that when I was googling for some info. Couldn't find anything that was helpful though, so I just winged it. Finished the grey cords, now doing my cream cords. I think I'm going to ask Luxire to do this on all my future trousers, perhaps even on wool ones. Sitting behind my desk all day always causes the crease on the knees to disappear.
 I'm not actually wearing shoes at the moment. Just put them on quickly for the pic, and I knew someone was going to comment on it. Yep, they're JF.
I hate how cords and other cotton trousers don't hold a crease, so I tried sewing a permanent one. Left leg has the crease, right leg not yet, for comparison. Thought you guys might like to see it. I might just do this for all of my cotton and linen trousers.
 Great photography! Looks like the toes of the shoes go up too much. Here's a pic of a similar shoe, made by Meermin: 
 This is the only good pic I have, but it's probably not what you're looking for and the quality still isn't that great. Stitchy has the same jacket, maybe he has better pics? Or are you looking for tan based gun club jackets only?  Everyone, thank you for the discussion, it has been immensely helpful. I will think about all of it, and I probably won't leave SF, as I don't believe in extremes. Moderation would probably be a good thing for me though. My apologies if I made...
Yeah, I might just do that. Perhaps I'll just start posting/reading less. It's a good resource, but seeing awesome things that you'd like to have on a daily basis does not help the long term planning at all.I don't need to have the perfect wardrobe right now, or even a couple of years from now. What I have right now isn't bad anyways. Most of it is fully canvassed and fits well, so there's no immediate need. I have 12 pairs of shoes, 25 shirts, and 25 ties, so that's more...
Gun club with a striped tie and a light grey hanky. Not professional photography, but you get the picture.  
Thanks for the discussion guys. I'll definitely have to put some more thought into this, as it's not an easy question. I just had this sudden realization where I saw myself in 5 years time with lots of expensive clothes that I won't wear frequently enough to justify the cost. That made me think, and that's how I got to this discussion. When it comes to making $500k+ before you're 30, it's not entirely unachievable if you're working in the right division of a big...
It does bring me joy, but perhaps not enough to justify the cost. All that extra money I would save could be used on traveling with loved ones for example, which I'm sure I'd enjoy more. Or save up more for a rainy day, or invest so I can create a steady stream of income next to my salary.For example, I have 12 pairs of shoes at the moment, but I don't wear most of them. During the week I wear black cap toes, of which I have four pairs. So, for during the weekends I'd need...
Surely you meant to say you have a big wardrobe compared to the average person? I think you really overestimate the amount of money the average person spends on clothes.Most guys I know have 3-4 suits, no blazers or odd trousers, 10 shirts, 5-10 ties and 3-4 pairs of shoes, and they all make $200k+ without any children or a mortgage. They'll have maybe 2 or 3 pairs of jeans or chinos, a couple of sweaters, t shirts and OCBDs for casual wear, and that's about it.The...
