Since my Iron Heart 634s are wearing out I need a denim recommendation. I'd like: -Dark indigo blue wash -'regular' fit like APC NS (but a higher rise would be a plus) -Slight taper below the knee -Non raw. Don't want indigo bleed. -Don't care about selvedge. Any suggestions?
Maybe this breaks the first and second rule of fight club... but I wonder if it would be possible to establish some standard metrics for thrifting. eg: -hot streak (store visits per single item with over $100 profit at market) -grind value (store visits per item with any flippable value) -sunk cost per visit (gas, time, etc) over net sales -some way to calculate which stores or neighborhoods are most likely to yeild ... At this point I only really buy stuff I need for...

Given the time of day you're getting married (most of the even will be after dinner), I would suggest that you get fitted a Samuelsohn MTM tux in the style of your choosing and do it properly with a bowtie (a-la blacktieguide.com). Tell your fiancee that your attire is something that is very important to you and it would mean a lot to you if she would back you up on this decision. If after this she still will not be flexible enough to let you choose your own attire then...
I'm not an american, but I'm pretty sure that the US postal system is heavily subsidized. Other countries cannot ship as cheaply as americans have become accustomed.
