Hi Oli, for my part, chinos and jeans should have a quite different fit.What brand are the chinos, and do you wear them with a crease or not? Either way, iron them how you would wear them, and have them pinned up by the seamstress (or better, an actual tailor). Make sure you move around plenty, as there is a risk you will make them too tight by going for a for that works when you're standing rigid, not walking or sitting.If you like the length and cuff width of your 501s,...
Thanks for the tip. The navy scotch grain drivers look amazing, but I shall refrain due to sizing concerns!
They were about $500 or $600 last time I was in, that was before the official 'sale' began but there were markdowns all over the shop...

Spectacular! Who made that beauty??
I get the full cedar Florsheim trees from DJs (oddly, the Florsheim store no longer sells them). Can frequently be had on sale for about $20.On another note, can someone explain 'foxing' to me?I am overdue for some new shirts, and hence many in my collection are fraying around the cuffs and collar. What, exactly, makes this awesome rather than not awesome?
