I have both the gardener and the comfort craftsman. The gardener is more rugged, but the comfort craftsman is enough for the never-more-than-half-an-inch-snow we have here in southern Sweden. I like the looks more of my CCs hence I'm selling my gardeners, but if you really want it to last I think the gardeners will take more of a beating.

To start of I'm going to need a tail suit for this saturday, I know it's very late thought of, but things come unexpected in the academic world. The trouble I'm struggling with here is whether I should: Buy a 370$ poly suit (including white bowtie, vest, shirt and suspenders) or a 670$ 60/40 wool/poly package or the third option: Buy a 110$ set of vest, shirt, white bowtie and suspenders and just borrow the suit until I can find something without poly. The...

I had the same thing, only tried the blaxland and normal craftsman before. I took a shot and ordered the CC in the same size and width, it worked perfectly. I can't feel any difference at all.
Oh, what shoe trees do you people use for your craftsman? Right now I'm only using a pair of cedar wood but on a spring. I'm thinking about what to buy (expensive shipping costs on the buggers).

I'll post pics later but I assume this is just a regular thing and nothing to...
At my Uni people are hell of a lot better dressed than the common people, at least among business and law students (not so much among the engineers). The engineers are practical, they wear outdoorsman apparel and backpacks, I respect them for it. Not everyone has to dress well, if everyone did you would just be mediocre

Now lower the mirror 5 inches and angle it up and look at your face again. You'll see how much older you look. Now position that mirror 5 inches above your eye level, and...
Just received a pair of chestnut comfort craftsman. To answer my own question: they fit exactly like the blaxland, though I've only tried them in a store. Wonderful color too
I actually thought this was just another internet legend. But there are other people out there wearing suits like this. I remember graduating from middle school (comparable) and in those days people looked like this in a suit. Horrible days and most poeple never wore a suit again after that experience ;D The worst thing is that girls complemented the guys on their apparel ^_^
