Most tapered cuts they start to taper at the thigh, problem is thighs don't taper...

I was thinking about doing this myself for a while but recently found the Edwin ED-55 which gives a similar fit without the need of tailoring.

It wasn't me, I have a phobia of headwear. Though I'm a bit disappointed you didn't go up to this random person and ask if he was habitant.

Mine are both 33 with a leg opening of 7.25"

Got myself some h&m
Saw too many Canadian geese walking around
1800 dollar overcoats and 300+ dollar knits at club Monaco.
It had me questioning who their clientele was and if people actually buy this stuff? I mean, right across from CM is holt renfrew so I'm sure if one wants to spend money they'll end up there.

To be fair the CM stuff you're talking about is only the "made in the USA" collection they have, which I don't understand for the same reasons you posted. Their regular stuff is much cheaper... at retail it's to expensive for what it is but it's decent deal once its on sale and at least in the past most everything would go on sale.

No, I couldn't get my head round wearing a raincoat on non rainy days, it's a bit like wearing wellingtons on a sunny day. I did have a feel though as I found a shop (now closed), which sold the original raincoat and the quality was amazing.


They have opened up a "flagship"shop in Stockholm, so I plan on dropping by, the next time I'm in Stockholm and grope a mac. smile.gif

Have you had a look at Norwegian rain?

They are almost the same price, but one is rubberized cotton and one is oiled, so it's a preference thing I guess.


Franz Boone has some nice pictures of the Sutterheim.
