I also find it funny how mismatched they are with their wives. The women are out there trying desperately to look like the lost Kardashian but the men don't seem to notice in the least.

Not to get too existential here, but I find it odd that we live in a time in which we hear lots and lots about income inequality while at the same time upper and lower class people probably dress more similar than at any other point in recent history.

 

I've been in LA for 10 years now and it still manages to surprise me when I go to a nice restaurant and there's people in flip-flops and Dodgers t's. It's not like it's a rejection of materialism, though - these are the same people who can't wait to tell you about their BMW's or how they can't drink any coffee that's not a single origin bean that costs $60/lb. It just doesn't seem to be something many people pay attention to here.

Great looking shoes. Nice view of our shitty bullpen. Cubs pitching is like receiving a green Alden box in the mail and then opening it to find that what you actually got was a pair of Aldos. Can't keep a game close to save our lives lately.

This is quite true. Interesting how that has flipped from previous generations. Millionaires once dressed to the nines but drank Folgers and Beefeater. Now small men's clothing stores have quickly vanished but artisan [insert edible good here] shops are pretty common.

That describes it better than I could put it. Hope things look up for the Cubs soon. Looks like a good set of young talent overall.

I'm still wearing my stone sanded UK canvas walts from 2013. After many wears and cold machine washes these are now so comfortable and soft. It's nice to see the quality of construction and material hold up so well. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

You know they are 9 games up right?  About as "looking up" as the Cubs have seen in a long while.  Don't worry you'll have Chapman shortly.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This is fantastic looking, especially with that jacket. Care to share the details on the material and maker?

My bad. Everyone I met yesterday was complaining nonstop about the pitching so I just assumed the team was doing poorly. Not from Chicago and I definitely have not followed the MLB as closely as I should the past few years.

Probably should have taken two minutes to look up the record. Haha

Gotcha!  Yeah they were on fire earlier, have come back to reality a bit but still have a pretty big lead for 1/2 way through the season.

 

Wrigley is a great place to be,  I flew in an out of O'Hare yesterday myself.

That is super sharp @Spandexter
post #54790 of 57779
people were complaining because the then slumping Mets had just made the Cubs look like Little Leaguers.

just ordered the White Salt Washed Oxford.  Was a no-brainer when I realized my current white oxford is getting a little frayed.  Should be perfect for a beach wedding in a few weeks paired with some linen pants.

Thanks. Jacket is a Boglioli wool/cashmere I picked up a few years ago from Frans Boone.

Thanks! @FrankCowperwood

I guess it shouldn't matter that much. Are there other tees that you have had that rivals it in softness? How does the feel compare to Lady White?

 

I'm thinking about jumping on that Gustin deal with 3 tubular tees for $50 in September. I don't know if it would be as good as the Loopwheeled tees and I'm not as psyched about the colors :/

 

 

Huh. Okay. I might just wait a bit to order the green and purple one then. Or I might just skip these in general and have Jomers tees instead.

I have stockpiled every t-shirt Epaulet has ever made and been so happy about it. EPLA for the summer, Union Jersey for the winter and Loopwheel for inbetween.

 

It's a great and substantial fabric that doesn't overheat but also keeps you warm enough when it gets chilly. Not something you will ever regret getting.
