^^Thanks, Whatever. I'm seriously considering the Arrow ring mocs -- am weighing how much I'd actually use them in NYC -- and couldn't quite square the price difference.

IMO warmth is also a function of fit/engineering. I swear by Patagonia R2...trim fit with bias-cut panels, wears like iron, groovy colors...but costly. However, I have just retired an R2 jacket that lasted for 8 years of hard wear -- probably 100 days a year -- including being worn by my wife through 2 pregnancies (don't ask...). And all the seams are still pristine, the fleece hasn't pilled, and the elastic on cuffs and waist is still pretty stretchy. You can often find...

My true waist size is 31.5 but usually buy my jeans size 30. (Levis stf, Gap)I have a Lee 101 size 29 that fits great) I wear 31 in dickies work pants. What size should I get for j crew chino? I'm thinking 31? . Order 30 and 31, and return the one that doesn't fit. $6 return...

The idea is to have a few to wear to the bars where I don't care if they are spilled on/etc. H&M? Banana? Zara? Topman? Doesn't have to be great, but also shouldn't fall apart. Looking to spend between $50 - $100 max. (Thrift stores are an option, but let's skip them for now because my 38S size is hard to...

A little late to this discussion, but NB has as much cachet as Vans, if not more. When I was a kid in the 70s and 80s (ahem), NB's were only worn by the rich kids b/c they...
Quote: Originally Posted by wEstSidE you think 501s havent changed over the years? To clarify, I meant both in the wearing and in the cut. You can wear them tight and tapered like Joey Ramone or droopy anti-fit like the kids I see on the A train. Or flare them like my mom did in the 60s by cutting the side seams and sewing in a triangular shaped patch of batik.

Any wide deviation from the 501 fit qualifies as a trend, and thus is era-dependent. In the late 60s/early 70s the style was skinny as eff to the knee, then a big flare. And reference the Ramones in 1978...ouch...those are basic 501s sized down like 3... It's also true that spandex will make skinny jeans pretty comfortable. As has been pointed out before nearly all women's jeans have 1-2%. Women hate diaper butt more than men...

I think the 2nd one matches the use for a chambray work shirt, and the boots seem fitting to the style. The first one I like as well though, maybe it matches the grey jeans better. Thoughts? i think you want to button it..."work" shirts are meant to be buttoned so you're not (in theory) getting yourself sucked...
