I'm no help on a name for the combination of smooth and grain leather, but it is a look that I enjoy. I really like those Alfred Srgents as well (without the kilt would be ideal though).2) I've heard varying opinions about the wearability of shell in rain (with most saying they avoid it), any rule of thumb re the topic?[/quote]Personally, I would rather where my shell in the rain than my calf. The water marks seem to dry up and clear away much more quickly than on calf. I...
There's also a 40 out there.
I usually wake up to run around 4:15 or 4:30 so it's still basically the middle of the night for me. I went back to sleep and was still able to get another 2+ hours of sleep.This morning I decided to get back out there and gave running a big High-Five! Had I known my route was going to look so much like a hand, I would have added in a proper thumb.
After yesterday mornings 6 mile run, I went for another 6 mile run in the evening. I had to dodge so many bicycles, dogs, cars, other runners, etc. that I felt like I was playing Paperboy on my old Nintendo. I was supposed to get out for another short run this morning. I got up early enough, wandered around the house and started to get ready and then decided to just go back to bed. I think I made the right choice.
I've had mixed experience with Bonobos as well. Once you dial in on the proper size/fit combination, their casual chinos are pretty great considering you can often find get them significantly discounted. I have had a few pair for 3 or 4 years now and they are still holding up well. And like the OP, I got a couple of their shorts this year and have been more than satisfied with them as well. Their shirts are a different beast altogether. I have 2 or 3 button up cotton...
And since we're posting family photos, here's an old one from me: It's gone through a lot of changes since this was taken (early spring 2013?) but size-wise it's roughly the same.
Gorgeous boots!I don't need any more boots but was genuinely saddened when these sold out in my size before I made it over to the Unionmade site.
I recently ordered a pair of Clymer 2.0 navy suede shoes but didn't care for the workboot style sole on the standard one either so I went with the Reltex honey sole. They are scheduled to ship today. Once they do ship and arrive, I'll try and compare them to my Ranger Mocs.
SB - I've never had that happen to me during a run, but I have had it on occasion when I go to a spin class in the morning and then work out for a bit and go into the steam room. I'm usually pretty well hydrated but I've noticed that it's much more likely to happen if I haven't had anything to eat beforehand. Now I know if I am going for a morning like that I'll have something at home (usually toast with peanut butter) and a GU (or something similar) between the spin class...
I took a pair of coffee twill Rudy trousers and the POW suit that was recently marked down to an insane price in to my tailor at lunch and he gave his usual comments he makes when I bring in stuff from Epaulet about how nice of a quality they appear to be. He doesn't seem to make the same comments when I bring in most of my other stuff. I'll take that as a nod to the awesome Epaulet quality. Speaking of the Rudy trousers... I sure hope we get to see more options for...
