NOBD does this type of look much better. I would either:- replace raw jeans with something more faded, or- replace the OCBD with something more dressy lookingIn either case, would change the shoes and belt for something browner and/or darker, and lose the jeans cuffs.

Maybe I am misunderstanding, but going for cool stuff instead of flattering stuff sounds like you're moving in the wrong direction...
I once asked C&J directly about their cavalry calf, specifically whether it is corrected grain. Their response:
Is Ambrosi saying that the trousers were initially made correctly? Or that the altered trousers should be satisfactory?
Personally I find the most important feature of a cheap IEM is that the eartip doesn't easily slide off and get lost. In this regard, I find Sony to be by far the best because the rubber tip connects to a rubber seal around the speaker, creating a much stronger grip than if the rubber tip connected to plastic.
Those pics are from ads, magazines, etc. Most of the time if you wear that sort of stuff IRL you are going to look bland/geeky or really flamboyantly preppy.
RFX and other experts - What are your views on the lunarspider lt+2? Basically I am not a hardcore runner, but want to get them in a b/w color scheme for jogs and mostly walking around town. Are they too "specialist" for those purposes?
Does C&J let you order direct from their UK store if you live in the US? Sounds odd since they have an NYC outlet. Ordering from other UK retailers is tough because of the low stock. Either way, I'm not usually one to defend markups, but I find C&J to be decent value for the $500-600 they charge in the US for benchgrade. Much prefer their offerings to Alden or Church's.
Smith is really good about mailing swatches, just email them - sales@smithwoollens.co.ukAlso, for what it's worth, my experience with Smith vs Lesser in 13 oz is that the Lesser is a little more stiff and dense, whereas the Botany has a smoother and more fluid feel. Lesser performs better but I prefer Smith's colors.
