I dunno, they put full value on a shipment I sent via EMS. It was $500+.

That's discouraging. Trying to sneak stuff across the Canadian border is like trying to sneak a ray of sunlight past a rooster in the morning.

Is it weird that I still don't think I've figured out what exact jean dimensions work for me? I chopped and tapered a pair of gray washed DH 19cms (sacrilege I know), tapered some black on black APC NS's and have some 17.5cmish JE's. Have some W+H beaters too. I picked up some tapered Momotaros that have a 7 inch hem and roughly 35" inseam. I've only worn them at home a few times after work... not sure what I want to do after they settle in some. Taper? Hem? Current stacks are pretty intense and I'm not sure I like how they make the bottom seem wider than the leg before the stacks. Product of stiff new jawnz? Been forever since I broke in jeans like this. Fabric is amazing. Fit is similar to the pre chop/taper 19 cms. People suggested I size down on those and/or hem/taper. I think they look better after, but not ideal still. Others have commented that the taper of the JEs isn't the most flattering for my body type, which is criticism I can undestand too. I have a long torso and I'm only 5 ft 9/10. I'm a US40 and a 29 or 30 in most jean brands.

Sorry for wall of text, but I'm beginning to agree with various posters that pant fit is the weak link in a lot of my fits.

Did you soak those momotaros? It could help loosen them up, settle zee stacks

No, Jay recommended not to. Maybe I'll take a pic tomorrow, but not sure if it will be representative of how they'll look after some more wear. They've seen maybe 10 hrs of mostly sitting.

IMHO you'd benefit from higher rise jeans. The low rise ones really elongate your torso bit too much. Makes your fits look top heavy sometimes.

What's the average wait time on an item you order online before you start getting annoyed?

Day 9 for me and I'm already pretty annoyed. The tracking is still at "Label has been created."

Everything in the Northeast is fucked right now.
post #89829 of 98396

I guess that's true.

 

Just wish the damn tracker would at least say accepted...

Hmm, yeah I suppose there are many schools of thought on that. Did he say why? If you're worried about indigo bleeding you can always turn them inside out. If you're super worried a skosh of vinegar diluted in the water will help a lot.

If it makes you feel any better I'm sort of in the same boat. The only cut I've found that works are Kapital Stones. Highrise taper for lyfe

What do you guys think is a good jacket for travelling around the world? I am looking for jacket that is able to keep me warm during winter in Europe, somewhat waterproof but also lightweight so that I am would be able to carry it around with me in South East Asia. So far I am thinking of getting a Nanamica Cruiser Jacket, good choice? Any other recommendations?

A Waxed cotton flight jacket with a four-pocket front, high collar, and two zipped interior pockets, fully lined with vintage silk scarves, is my dream traveling piece.

Canvas flight jacket, leather double-rider: those are my usual suspects. Or at least they were. Now just flight jackets.

Yes. It's in the second part of the shipping instructions (or was last month).

post #89835 of 98396
You don't wear scratchy wool.
