Been there. My kids are now 3 and 5 and just last year did I start buying "nice" casual clothes again. I basically realized about 6 months after our first child was born that it was going to be all I could do to be presentable and semi-alert at work. I spent way too many hours on my hands and knees in various playgrounds/sandboxes/dirt piles to even think about wearing anything other than cheap Levis/Chippewas and gray/brown/black T-shirts. Now I'm moving into EG and...

I bought my wife a NOS Hamilton military watch for about $200 and change. That's my recommendation. Of course if you want a watch that actually...

I think you need to try it on, or order a couple of different sizes. Reason I say this is that I tried a 32 (TTS) and it was tight...but then a 33 was huge. then I tried a 32 in the color I didn't want, and it fit...so I think the problem is QC as much as vanity sizing. The SA told me...

I absolutely second this re Polo. However, if you hate the little man...

Hello, I'm looking for an OCBD that fits like BB slim fit, but with a smaller (and lower) collar. Would prefer made in USA, price up to $150. Imported options welcomed too, though. Thanks in advance. Edit: should add that I'm looking to wear with tie and usually a solid color suit, if that makes a difference.
Quote: Originally Posted by S-Town I agree that selvedge doesn't necessarily indicate quality. but I feel that if a jeansmaker puts out a $200-$400 product, i want the selvedge there. At the very least, it's a cool detail. Is there any non-selvedge denim out there that is far superior to a selvedge denim at a similar price point? I've asked this before and the answer I've received are somewhat inconclusive. Two points to add to this:...

Beautiful shoes. But... I'd have to squint really really hard to tell the difference between the Ep. camp mocs and the Eastland camp mocs that Ep used to sell. Likewise, the tall boot looks Yuketen to me. I don't mean this in negative way, but what I like about Epaulet is they so far are doing things to stand out from the crowd (for example. rivet chinos, walt pant fabrics). The collabs are a different matter -- you clearly know you're getting something made by...
