Well, I wear a size 28 (with a belt), so I would take in about two inches at the most. I wasn't going to tailor any of my B.R. pants, even though all three pairs I own are from B.R..

I think they look very nice; they're a bit expensive for when you're only sixteen and with only a side job, but I want to get some eventually, as the only boots I have at the moment are a pair of Macalister desert boots. And I only have one pair of brogues so far. Quote: Originally Posted by chasingred What happened to Chelsea boots? Seems like people totally forgot about them on the forum.

I have an idea: don't wear cargo pants. Yes! Quote: Originally Posted by GBR Yes: Dreadful looking things. Take them back or burn them.
I need a lot of different items, but the most essential are: Sterlingwear Classic peacoat (in navy) Dark brown Chelsea boots Gray flannels (slim) Navy sport coat
This thread has been very helpful; I'm looking for a pair of gray pants as well, as my current pair are from B.R. with 100% cotton and I want some in wool. I wear a 28 waist, so, when I find a good pair of pants, can I have the waist taken several inches without any really odd distortion? Oh, and chasingred, I live in the Bay Area as well.
Well, I wasn't completely serious when I said that; if anyone would feel awkward from the way I dress, that's their problem. Overdressing at any time can be a little odd in retrospective, though, like the time I wore shell cordovan to a science class.

Now, my second question is, will I look like an old man, wearing Harris Tweed when I'm only sixteen years old?
Now there's an idea. I have loads of saved searches on Ebay for thrifting, and I check them every few days; yes, I thrift. Quote: Originally Posted by Dewey If you are thrifting, buy all three. See what happens.
Can you give an example? I want a basic pattern for versatility, and not something like this. Grey tweed sounds lovely right now.. Quote: Originally Posted by pebblegrain there are hundreds, or even thousands of harris tweed patterns. Personally I would look for something more unique.
