Just adding some data points here...picked up a pair of slim/straight "raw" selvedge denim for 19.90 euros. I sized up 1 in the waist (usually 32x34) cause the top block was a little smaller than I thought it would be and I wasn't sure if they'd stretch. I plan on wearing for a couple of weeks then warm soaking if they seem a little stiff. Fabric is pretty thin -- I usually wear 14-16 oz Japanese denim -- I'd say these are 11-11.5 oz. Construction is spot on from what I...
Re haircuts: Japanese salons are where it's at -- mine has groovy vintage US music and reiki massage. I pay about $40-45 at Hoshi Coupe in Paris (they have branches in NYC, Berlin and the original in Kyoto(. I find the Japanese obsession with detail gets me a great cut, although it literally can take an hour...my wife jokes that they cut each hair individually.
^^That's a really good fit, and there's no reason to worry about the zipper. Would look great with a gray or white luxe T. I have a few things with the zipper on the "wrong" side, including an old Muji baracuta-type jacket and some Italian cycling gear.
I like it -- looks like some of the EG collaborations in recent years. It would look great with some mid-gray heavy tweed trousers.
Please keep pounding home how crappy vibergs are. I'd like to buy a few pairs on the resale market, kthanksbye.
S2w8 has ballistic cloth bags that are pretty sweet.edit: in fact the binocular bag comes in black ballistic (and possibly green) ballistic cloth. I'd go for that if what you want is a casual everyday bag. for something more work related, provided you're white collar, Filson #70230 small field bag is probably your best bet.
Yep, have had one for 3 years, and use it pretty much daily. Getting a little beat up so thinking about replacing it. Think I paid 125 at Nepenthes store. I posted a pic a while back in either this thread or the EG thread.The only quibble (really, it's minor) is that the leather and hardware is basically built for life, but the sunforger canvas isn't. It's really durable, but if you're looking for, say, really long-term use you might want to consider a different...
That looks really, really cool.Just one point -- is there a way you could shorten the sleeves and pant legs a bit? There's stacks and slouch, and then there's "my mom bought my clothes a size too big so I can grow into them." I think it would be 100 percent on point if you tried this.Another way to make this fit pop would be a pair of beat-up slim jeans. Or a lighter-colored shirt.
No, hardly "girlly." My concern would be that it's not really a messenger bag, because the strap isn't long enough to go across your body. Otherwise, nice sleek bag in what looks to be a useful size. Can you buy and return?
I'm pretty sure you'll be fine in a 10, but why not email Viberg to make sure? I think the consensus, with rare exceptions, is to size down .5 from Brannock. Possibly 1 full size if you have short toes and narrow feet.I've found that Viberg fit like most work boots (Chippewa, RW etc). They're a little big to account for heavy socks, arch supports, "high-volume workingman's feet that swell by the end of a hard day" etc.
