If that's a made in France Chevignon, it's a nice find. I am not positive that all new Chevignon leathers are French made. Quality is good, not top notch, say along the lines of Schott. Anyway, someone will get a nice coat!
1959 Gillette fat boy with Feathers. Omega silvertip badger, nice soap, finish with witch hazel and Floid balm. Cost per shave is like 3 cents.
^^@ktown: I'm 1.5 inches taller than you and 5-7 lbs heavier, and suggested measurements for CM are about the same with a little more in the sleeves an front length. So yours seem logical to me. Guess we'll find out in 4-5 months...
Here's a challenging question for Parisians: I live in Paris, where outside of APC and some random N&F at Colette there isn't much quality denim available for under 200 euros. (About 260 USD -- APC's are 135 euros = 185 or so USD). I've finally worn my BiG N-02s down to the point where they're too faded for work. So, I'm looking for APC-style denim, i.e. no embellishments, that I can try on here in Paris. The Rocker Speed Shop or whatever it's called in the Marais has...
Here's a pic of my well-worn sun forger S2W8 fishing bag. Perfect size to hold lunch and a small umbrella. btw it's a small bag, about 10 inches across.
Canvas shirts are good for the price, but the pants punch above their weight class. What the shirts are good for are wearing to work in an office job in which you're active, and the rest of your coworkers dress like its 1995. Honestly, if I wear a LEC shirt and slim chinos I look like Gianni Agnelli.oTOH I don't want to be that guy who peacocks it every day and is known for it. My uniform is pretty much bb sf , gitman vintage and LEC shirts, slim fit chinos from various...
Just got 2 pairs of Elston slim chinos -- very surprised at the quality. Really thick fabric, solid construction and they fit me even better than EP rivets, my preferred brand. (I find the Rivets to be a tiny bit short in the front rise.). I paid retail -- was going to wait for a sale but they aren't discounted all that often. I'd describe the fit as very slim for an American -- but since I live in Paris, I'd say it's a regular French fit...if you have big thighs it might...
Good question --- I suspect that Lands End mainline still does a ton of business in the heartland. I think that Canvas and by extension LLB Signature never really connected with their target demographic, because the quality and styling aren't really at a higher level. don't get me wrong, I much prefer LEC and LLBS to anything on their mainline catalogs. I'm just not sure there are enough people who would rather buy Canvas than, say, the Gap or JCrew, out there.I do own a...
