Denim (either dark or beat up) is sorta the default.  Samurai, blue blue, etc... all pretty much style it that way.  That, or some loose cargos.  I personally feel that the best way to wear indigo is with more indigo.  Some do it slim, some do it regular, some super baggy.  Slim makes you look a bit more "modern" in a sorta Japan meets #menswear way in a good way.  Regular makes you look more casual, more "hey, I'm just out here drinking my coffee and eating this croissant."  Baggy is sorta a take on that fitted, tailored top and slouched bottom that Rick does, except, it's not fragile like Rick stuff.  Tonal it up.  The secret is that the texture is sufficiently different from denim that it does not look like you are wearing a suit, though, a Sashiko suit would be pretty great.  

 

Just think of the thing as a structured cardigan.  You are going to Starbucks or a better place? You can throw it on.  Walking the dog (I don't have a dog, but I hear that people do that)? Throw it on.  Picking up your kids from school?  Throw it on. Going for drinks with friends?  Throw it on. Gonna get in a fight in that bar and might need your cuffs to choke some fool out?  Throw on this sashiko jacket!  

 

fwiw, I will throw this jacket on to do three of the above five things.

Gotta save for a month or two, then I'm doing this provided they keep the fabric in stock. I can't decide whether to stick with the shawl collar or go with more of a stand / nehru collar.

Ditto.  Moneywise, this could have come at a better time...

If it's the former, can you elaborate, and if it's the latter, just be open with her that you're picky about clothes but you appreciate the sentiment - if she wants to surprise you on occasion then the best way to do so is (X)

 

Thanks! Hope this will work out.

Yes, I mean only you know the idiosyncrasies of your relationship and if that's a good idea or not and how you should word it, but I'm just personally not an advocate of letting in that type of lie into a relationship - you'll just end up with a bunch of stuff you don't feel good in, which will come through when you're with her and wearing those things.  This is an easy thing to let happen, but it also just sends the message that everything she picks out is fine, and good enough, which is boring. She won't get much satisfaction out of the gifting, and over time will likely think you're boring if you just feel ho-hum about everything.

 

Conversely, if you're open that you're picky about clothes but you're also passionate about X (ideally something that isn't as difficult as clothes or something where she has a better grasp of your taste - this comes with time), when she surprises you with X the enjoyment you receive will be apparent and will make the gifting process more enjoyable for her as well.

 

This goes both ways, so pay attention!!

Wait for the "WTF" moment when she finds out how much the clothes you like cost.

Her: "Hey sweet potato I got you this commissioned object-dyed sashiko- stitched garment made from vintage boro dating back to the 19th century! It was hand woven by artisans from Japan and contains a handmade paper tag milled by local millers signed by the person who stitched it all together! It has all the complexities that you love: made from antiquated native techniques by artisans who have honed their craft, ethereal and vague sense of quality, and natural dye that rubs off and stains everything!"

Him: "wow baby, you really understand my tastes. I'm glad I was open about my clothing preferences. Is it a jacket? I've been wanting a new jacket for a while!"

Her: "It's a polo! It'll look great on you-- I love the way they look on the GQ models!"

HEY

 

Ok, I'll take the bait.

 

Diesels are great. You must realize that no one in the US just "ends up" with a diesel like they might in Europe. If you have one here it's a pretty deliberate choice. They are difficult to find, hold their value much better, and are generally held onto for far longer than their gasoline counterparts, all with good reason. And yes I know the A3 is technically a Golf underneath but I wouldn't exactly call it a Volkswagen. I had the MkV R32 before and a MkV GTI before that, and the Audi is a very different car from either of those.
