Can anyone recommend a shop west of Colorado where I can send me Alden LWBs to have the heels replaced? I'd love it if they could also add a commando sole.
I still own the small house I lived in before I got married, and renting is a pain in the ass. Now, I rent it to my Mom, which could turn out to be an even greater pain in the ass. But, it's a much better (i.e., cheaper) option for her than a retirement home.
True. SLC is a bit of an underrated hotbed for MCM. There have been a couple Danish shops around for decades, and they have supplied lots of great furniture that people are now casting off.Hopefully. The house we are considering has a workshop, so I could finally build that little wooden sailboat...
I've furnished an entire house in vintage Danish teak furniture from Craigslist for a song. I'm talking about a third the price of cheap IKEA crap. It's not designer Danish furniture, but it all matches and looks great. IKEA is great for buying pillows, lamps, etc. that match all of it pretty well.In related news, we've decided to move. No more farmer zissou.
I'm thinking of backing the heavy caramel chino and wondering if I should plan for stretch in the waist.
I can make one that is undyed on the inside if you need.
If anyone ordered shirts in the Feb/Mar chambrays (nep, true navy, coal) in classic fit medium and wants to trade for one of my slim fit mediums, let me know. I think that somewhere between slim and classic is my ideal fit, so I'll just have a mix of the two fits rather than all slim mediums.
I have a grey homespun wool Andover in medium that I'm interested in trading. It's a little too small on me.I could go for:CPO in medium (only the older version with buttons)Andover in largeWorkshirts in mediumTrousers in 32W, although they tend to run a little short on me sometimes.I'll browse the thread and see if there is a possible trade.I had this in a medium, and I really regret having sold it. If anyone has one, I'd be interested in it.
Hello SF 2010.
I just picked up a pair of the old selvedge officer's chinos in 32x34, planning to have them taken in an inch in the waist. My pair in 30x34 are great in the waist, post stretching, but damn slim in the thighs. I'll have to watch Ebay like a hawk to see if a pair in 31x34 ever pop up. I think that would be my ideal size...
