And to my taste, the pocket stitching is a bit gaudy. Having said that, the Grim Tim is a great fit...

I got about $110 to spend on the sneakers. Yeah, i know. Brown Blundstones; buy em direct from Australia for $110 or less on ebay....
I generally hate American Apparel, except for their gray 90/10 T-shirts. But yesterday I saw they have some cotton duck work pants for $75. Tried 'em on, nice slim fit and will probably wear nicely. But worried about stretch or shrinkage, and the 17-year-old sales girl had no clue. Any experience? I'd size down 1 if they stretch. I'd just do a cold water gentle wash/hang dry. TIA
Since you're asking...good quality flannels in classic tartans are never "out" -- they wax and wane in popularity -- but next year I think brighter colored and "exploded" plaids won't be as popular. Ginghams have some life left in 'em, I think. I plan on buying one or two this spring.

Y-O-K-E (sorry, the editor in me comes out sometimes) I'd argue that tuck/untuck is basically sitting on the fence. If the tails were just a smidge shorter it would clearly be "untuck." But the gusset is too high to tuck. I know Daiki has a pretty sophisticated aesthetic that derives equally from high fashion, workwear, surfer chic, and god knows what else. No need to defend him, but that shirt does not work for me, and I'm (pats own back here) pretty much a spot on...
