Just got the chinos in khaki. Looking forward to trying them on. Also looking forward to the walt restock.
Lots of exciting stuff in this thread. Not sure exactly what to get. I fell sort of like that dog that goes back and forth between the two food bowls till he starves. P.S. for all the love the new trousers have gotten, why are people not posting their own fit pics?
He rocked for a long, long time. Now it's time for him to pass the torch.

This will be the next book I read.

You're some well read fellas. Kinda random, but can anyone recommend a good book about the British Raj?
The la Marseilles scene always gets me. And Bogey is a joy to watch. But I have to agree that the movie is overrated. When I compare it with some of my other favorite movies, it comes out looking like a flat and pious wartime picture. And though I'm no expert, it doesn't seem to me to be very technically sound either. It's good, but all this "greatest story ever told!" and bitches dragging their boyfriends to summer screenings--it's too much. But if you like it, more...
