Some Saturday morning Mac method, #8 Brixton and Cigar LWB. I've been having a hard time getting the same luster on my Cigars that my Brixtons already have - you can see in the closeups that the Cigar looks a little more dry compared to the Brixtons. I don't know if Alden used lower quality shells or what, but I've been doing a ton of brushing and buffing on these and they're getting better, but they still don't look quite as wet as my Brixtons. [[SPOILER]]
First to pay gets the item, PAYPAL only, FREE CONUS shipping, PM me with any questions! Up for sale is a pair of very lightly worn Alden for J. Crew color #8 shell cordovan punched captoe boots. These are size 12D and have been worn less than 10 times. I bought these new from J. Crew about a year ago, and I just never seem to reach for them enough, so I'm letting them go for well below retail. They still have a fantastic shine and show no real signs of wear other than the...

6.1 today. Last time I did a competitive 10K I finished in just over 57 minutes. I was a tenth of a mile short on this run, but I finished in 54:18.
Thanks, I use the same measurements for all shirts, whether I'm wearing them tucked or untucked. My first couple shirts were a little slimmer and a little shorter, but I prefer the fit of this one, I relaxed some of the measurements through the body (so it's not too tight when I sit) and made it slightly longer, but I still think it's a pretty good length for wearing untucked. I have other dress shirts that I wear with a jacket and tie that have the same measurements (only...
First wearing of my new Cotton-Linen Navy shirt. This is a really nice fabric, highly recommended for a warmer climate for anyone that wants a cool-wearing shirt without going with 100% linen. Very breathable, but still a substantial feeling shirt, it's not too wrinkly or flimsy or see-through at all. Also, there's a lot of collar talk here with tons of different measurements and order numbers of special collars, but I think Luxire's standard BD collar is pretty nice....
You might be right...I looked at the pics and it seemed pretty cropped on the model, but my Stark from a few years ago (size L) is 27" in length measured from the bottom of the collar, so if I sized up to XL I should be able to get the same length in the new season Stark. Of course this is assuming the measurements posted online are measuring the same way as I am. The one measurement that looks way off is the sleeve - mine is 26" and this one is listed as 22.5"? That seems...
Too bad the Starks are short again. The appeal of the Stark, to me anyway, was that it was a big ass chunky sweater, not some cropped fashion piece. Oh well, the search continues for an older version.
Damn you NAMOR. I think the problem with the dub monks was sourcing the new museum calf. I think the original estimate was 3-5 months, but we got an email about delays recently. It's been about 9 months already at this point, and it will probably a few more still.
5 this morning at an 8:36 per mile pace, super speedy for me.
