Found those Buttero sneakers I missed last season. So satisfying. Will be great standing outside in slouchy jeans and a tee drinking an iced coffee.
Also, shot across the bow, from the online store of a french streetwear store:
a summary of english and american brands, and scandinavian too, at the disposal of fashionable boys and girls. Something in the air that comes from a kissing wind, not a cold breeze. In the Marais district, not all fashion people look like goths out of the Batcave.
But remember the clothes come out only as good as your directions and samples you give. Tailors cannot read your mind or know exactly what you want unless you give very specific details etc. YMMV
I probably just need some sleeves shortened on a Raf blazer. Decided against taking a bit off the length. It's not your "typical" blazer shape though, so I'm not sure if I want to use my usual simple alterations spot.
yeah my experience with cone denim was that it didn't stretch at all, frankly

IDK what y'all are talking about. Mine stretched out plenty, and I had to wear a belt to get them to stay in place. The denim felt great, too. It softened up nicely, and out of my bajillion pairs of raw denim, they were my go-to pair. Really need to get those guys repaired.

San Diego, on the other hand, is nearly always great weather. I used to live there for weeks at a time, on the beach, and it's rarely unbearably hot, and even when it is, the sea breeze kicks in in the early evening, which feels amazing.
I don't know where Regis lives in FL, but it's generally a cesspool, both in terms of weather and, well, everything else.
My wife grew up in the south. I had to go to Nashville, TN, in June, and I'm telling you, that's the object in my "I will do anything for love, but I won't do that." I should have known, since I was made to go there, again during a heatwave, to an outdoor late afternoon wedding for her cousin. I am pretty sure that the bride, or maybe the groom, just hate people and life in general. I used to have to cut weight to fight, and I think that I lost more water during that wedding than I have wearing a garbage bag, running on a treadmill. She also grew up in Arkansas, which is a complete dump, oh, and hot and full of rednecks. And Houston. Oh man. I was forced to go to a wedding in Houston. I don't believe that that suit has ever really recovered. Turns out, there is no such thing as tropical wool. There are no sheep in the tropics. Think about it.
Of course, I grew up in Canada, and if it got above 80, we thought that we might die. No, my favorite seasons are spring, when the birds start to sing, and fall, which, imo, is thinking man's weather. And winter? I'll take snow and ice over death by boiling inside any day.
Even in SD, as soon as you get inland it starts to go all desert on you. I visited a friend in U City last fall, and it was crazy hot compared to the coast.
Also super-hydration + flushing > sweat runs.

Is anyone else making long, loose curved hem shirts for under $100/piece? Alternatively, if you've got some oversized Silent/DD/RO type tanks/shirts you'de like to unload, shoot me a PM!
They're about two sizes oversized (M felt like an XL), although they supposedly shrink about a size in the wash. The material feels pretty nice. If they made them in smaller sizes (M is the smallest), I'd have one in every color.
Also, I have a Zam Barrett tank to unload. PM if interested.

Inspect all items carefully prior to purchase; I've bought Silent on Yoox and ended up with women's stuff before (fortunately nothing on final sale).
