That green is pretty great looking. I feel like I can find red and blue checks in flannels all day long but that green is a bit more unique.
I'll give another endorsement for the Balega socks. I originally got mine for running but often wear them with casual shoes where I want something not too noticeable. As somebody else mentioned though they are a bit higher than actual no-show socks. For true no-show I've tried a few different brands and they usually have the problems of rolling down and bunching up. The only ones I've found that stay snug and don't show at all even with a nice low loafer are ones I've...
To me it looks just a tad too tight, especially higher up through the body around the 2nd button. You also seem to be standing very stiffly/unnaturally in the photo (suffering from ILS? ) so that could be making it look a bit tighter to my eye. If it were me, I'd have it let out just a touch. I know with a DB you run the risk of having the 1980s look where there are about three extra yards of fabric and nobody wants to see that, but a DB jacket is inherently more casual...
Speaking of ripstop - I'd love to be able to get those fabrics in a Walt or Rudy fit.
I like the complaints of weight gain followed by a post with a pic of your McDonald's breakfast! lol (FWIW, I'm in the same boat and need to learn to eat less)
By our other brand, I assume you are talking about Epaulet? If so, I've always found Epaulet's shirt measurements to be a little wonky - either they are perfect in the chest and body but the biceps are too tight or they're too tight across the chest but the torso is great... I think their use of darts on so many of their shirts is what messes things up for me.I wear a ton of OCBD shirts and for comparison's sake, the best fit I've found OTR from one of the major brands is...
This is fantastic looking, especially with that jacket. Care to share the details on the material and maker?
As @NewYorkIslander mentioned, I received one of the Italian Denim Speckled shirts with my chambray shirts and it is so awesome... Unfortunately I've been enjoying more pizza and ice cream this year than I realized (the troubles of having a kindergartner!) so all of my shirts are going back for the next size up. Back to the Italian Denim though - I've got plenty of chambray and denim shirts from various high end makers, including a couple from Sartoria Partenopea that...
I switched my Scurfa Diver One from the stock NATO to a two-piece Zulu a few days ago and it's been glued to my wrist ever since. The stock NATO is pretty high quality (I believe he sources them from Toxic Natos) but too bulky for my tastes. This is a definite improvement in my book. If you don't mind quartz, I highly recommend Scurfa. They are designed by an actual professional diver and he definitely puts them through the paces and still keeps the prices low. They...
Was this the #8 Alt Wien boot? That order was placed around that time as well and is still outstanding.
