A good, casual men's hat (ie non cap) is extroadinarily hard to find (at least in Vancouver). Is the bucket hat dead this season? Was looking everywhere and found almost nothing - its all caps and douchey straw fedoras. Eventually got a simple Kangol trilby - not bad, but kinda wish I didn't have to settle (with hats, buying online isn't an option - really need to see how they'll look on me).
^ Good advice. To me there's still some selected pieces (off the top of my head: deck pants, chore coats) that are tough to make work unless you commit to that aesthetic 100%, but (as has been said) I don't see the difficulty in working, say, a chambray, plaid flannel, peacoat or work boots amongst classic American brands. If it's the really idiosyncratic workwear details that are throwing things off, look for designers offering more modern interpretations on these styles.

^ Agreed - to me it's more a once or twice a week visit, rather than daily. I dislike the way the site was built too (especially the reliance on popups for features etc). And amen on h(y)r too... the newish one (Simon) can write fairly well, but the others are in dire need of an editor.

^ Me too. I'd like to see someone outside Japan pick up Old Joe & Co. and Marchercher as well.
^ Jeans are nice.
+1 for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, food-wise def. my fave show by far. No Reservations and UK Kitchen Nightmares arey pretty good too.
H&M or Gap are the only two I bother with (the latter only at sale prices). Don't know why H&M gets so much flak over quality, my stuff has always held up well - better than some other brands charging several times their prices. Good selection and generally a pretty good fit off the rack too. Gap sizing often runs too big for me, but each season they'll usually have a couple of decent things. Club Monaco ain't too bad - looks like shit if you try'd to wear a full outfit...
