Nah. I used to wear camo pants pretty often and I'm not a wild man by any means. IMO it works best with an untucked OCBD or looser gray or white T (black will make you look like Dog the Bounty Hunter). I think you want to be super casual and avoid any suggestion that you are in the miltary or want to be. But I do understand that wearing camo is a touchy subject.I have my ideal camo chinos in mind -- a big, non "Tactical" pattern is key, i really like the S D'A ones on that...
Hello, I have a pair of size 9 L.L. Bean Signature Hunting Shoes, in tan waxed canvas. They are too wide for me in the heel. Worn about 10-15 times, mostly to and from subway. Note that these only come in whole sizes, and the standard is to size down 1/2 size. For reference, I'm a 9.5 C/D on a Brannock. These are a D width, in the 8-eyelet height. Link to item on Bean site below. I can take a photo of the soles if you're seriously interested -- there's only a small bit of...
I think you're just trying to minimize trips to Costco.Anyway, too monochromatic for my taste -- but fit and texture is great.
Yep, just a regular climbing carabiner from the days when I used to climb (before children -- someday one will be my ropegun...). I've been meaning to order a leather fob from Zissou if he's still making them...I'm always juggling stuff so I need to have the keys handy. And jamming a ring with a bunch of keys into jeans that fit the way I like them to is hazardous to my femoral artery. I do keep my iphone in my front pocket ... but that's not really a good solution: I'm...
Getting back to the "personal payment" part: So in the future if we want buyers to pay via PayPal we should just say "$50 via PayPal" and leave the "gift" or "4 percent" part until the PM'ing back and forth? Edit: I'm cool with all the rules. The best part about B&S is the level of trust, because everything is transparent.
The test is when you're sitting down. You want to avoid the mangina effect. I think you know what I mean.
Rivet chinos fit me with a single 1.5-2" cuff right off the rack. My gunmetals shrank a little in the length (cold/gentle) so I sometimes don't even cuff themThis summer tho I'll be wearing my light stone canvas rivets rolled up to catch the breeze...
Hello, I'm reluctantly putting a pair of Studio D'Artisan Olive chinos in size 32 up for sale. I bought them last fall at Blue in Green, wore 10-15 times and washed twice in cold/gentle and hung dry. They were hemmed post-wash at Blue in Green to a 32.5" inseam. They are just a little too tight in the top block -- the fabric is a wonderful, heavy (10-12 oz) mercerized cotton that will not stretch. The construction is bulletproof -- felled seams throughout, heavy cotton...
Timpoblete and other EG experts: What is EG Intermediates? The description on the Nepenthes blog just says made in the same factories but with a different "mindset." Is there a price/quality difference, or simply a less "engineered" look? The shirts all look very simple -- digging the print that's up on the site right now. I understand the other sublabels -- workaday, s2w8, needles, but Intermediates is a new one for me.
Well, of course you can tuck a "dress shirt" into jeans -- but the jeans should be top quality, be unadorned (or Levi's) and fit you well. (cf. APC New Standard or Petit Standard) And the shirt should ideally be slim but not darted (Gitman Vintage, Band of Outsiders, BB Slim or Extra Slim Fit), and it can't be pressed (light ironing is fine.). Preferably a button down collar I often wear a Gitman Vintage or BB slim fit oxford with raw denim. Another way to wear it --...
