That sounds horrible dude. I generally agree with the save your money idea, but if you really don't have winter outerwear, it may be a good idea to either proxy a uniqlo peacoat or duffle, or grab one off b&s.

You can probably find a lower price on a peacoat if you hunt around more army surplus sites. That said, you're a pretty narrow guy, so you may have trouble finding an army surplus peacoat that fits that way you like. Sierra Trading Post might have something decent, too.

These come in size 34. I'd think that should be narrow enough for me.
Or do you think not?

^^ It's too bad they don't list the measurements, because you might even want to size down (if you aren't already).

This is an interesting point.
I wear H&M xs shirts (34in chest) and they fit like a glove, basically. I think the 34 would probably fit ok in the chest. As you say, though I really don't know how it will really fit as a whole.
A 34 isn't normally big on me. In my experience, that size is good for me.

I'm the same height and weight as you, and take the same H&M shirt size. You're going to want a 32 short. Trust me.

Can anyone help me find a brown boot? I'm ok with most styles: cap toe, brogue, plain, as long as it looks good. I don't really want something bulky like wolverine or red wing. What are my options in the sub-$300 range (preferably around $250)?

Ok.
Thanks.
I guess I'll try that size then.
They run big? maybe.

I actually just found and bought that size on another web site. I hope it's not too small, or too short in the sleeves.

Hi!

I need new brown boots for the northern german winter (which isn't that cold here, occasionally temperature falls below -10°C, but this would be an exception). They don't need to be very warm, as I will wear them with thick wool socks when it gets cold.
I don't want to pay much more than 120€ and it would be nice, if the boots would be available in a german online shop, so I don't need to pay (much) for returning them, when they don't fit. But you can also just recommend some and I will look for them in german shops.

I found these boots I like:
Clarks Manly Alpine chestnut
I also like the Clarks Motive Pole, but I don't like it's color very much...
Clarks Gofor Life is also nice, but I guess they would hard to walk with the sole on slippery grounds...
I think this boot also looks nice, but I never heard of the brand and for me they look like the quality is lower (but what do I know?).
I like boots like the Wolverine 1000 Mile or some Redwings, but I can't afford them. biggrin.gif

So, what do you guys think of the mentioned boots or can you recommend other ones? Most of the boots in the "shoes and boots thread" are too expensive for me.

Thanks in advance!

^ lol

erm, so i got this gitman shirt a couple weeks ago. it was brushed cotton medium. it fit me pretty well and i like it. i decided to try a gitman oxford, so i got light blue in medium, but its giving me major hip flare. i have bigger hips than the average male, but im lean 170 lbs 6 feet, and hit the gym 3-4 days a week. guess the fabric made the hip flare stand out more? anyways, im returning the shirt, but im curious as to why something that would cost so much and be in my size (medium) not be fitted properly. the bottom of the shirt seems too open, and the oxford is stiffer so flares more.

im just unsure of which direction to go now

should i try another brand? any worth trying out from what you know about me?

I think the sleekest option available in your range (while not an balmoral) would be the Herring Stratford - $254.82 shipped excl. any import taxes.

These are made by Loake in the UK.
