How long did it take you to match the font colors to the boot colors? Looks good.

So I have a pair of LL Bean "bean boots" for poor weather and a pair of stone/brown Jcrew McAllister Chukkas for better, but cold weather. I was looking at either some Alden Indy boots, or Red Wing GT or 1907 etc as a third pair of boots.

But I was wondering how you guys fit these into your rotation, when do you wear them when I couldn't wear the beans or chukks?

Ken, i guess its just vanity and that I am not outside for that long. Mostly running to the car in 10/15 minute tops intervals that are long enough to soak stuff up but not long enough to justify duck boots biggrin.gif

Would they be dyeing the shoes? I have no experience in boots of any kind.

Ok, I need some sweater recommendations. I own 3 cardigan sweaters (all Brooks Brothers) and 1 v neck sweater (JCrew)*. Living in Denver and with fall/winter coming up, I'll be wearing sweaters a lot and wanted to find some cheap but quality options from $0 - $100. I will likely buy 3 or 4. I'd love to buy a nicer sweater like Lyle and Scott or Pringles of Scotland, but I'm going to need a few and will need to wear these almost every day during fall + winter, which is why I'm hesitant to buy just one sweater and wear that over and over again.

 

Any suggestions?

 

*I do have 2 or 3 beater sweaters from Old Navy from last year, and I'll probably throw those on here or there, but their clothes kinda suck.

Hmm, I've been hesitant to check out uniqlo's merino v neck sweaters because I've heard two things:

- They are very slim and if one is going to wear a obcd underneath, they need to size one up. I always wear an obcd underneath, but size medium will be too long as I'm really short (5'4)

- Prone to tearing if stretched too far. (poor quality?)

 

I may just have to put in an order and hope for the best.

 

 

EDIT:

 

Just ordered two extra fine merino v-neck sweaters via Suddenlee in size small. Fingers crossed. Total was $80, so essentially $40 for each sweater. I highly doubt they are worth that much, but these will really just be beater sweaters for the cold days that are coming soon.

 

 

EDIT 2:

 

I think those merino v necks are acctually on sale for 19.90 at the moment, so it may cost less. I just emailed them and told them to adjust my order/payment accordingly. Hope it works as I've heard some horror stories about Suddenlee's customer service.

hmm. from the ones i have i would definitley not agree that they are slim. they could be slimmer imo. i don't think i've worn them enough to comment on your second point though because they really fit a bit too loose for me.

Tailoring question:

I found a pair of pants I absolutely love, and want to get them in the other color they come in - problem is they're sold out EVERYWHERE in my size.

I'm a size 33, and I've found a 34 however. If I bought the 34's and brought both pairs to a tailor, would they be able to alter the 34's to 95%+ accuracy of the 33's dimensions? How hard is this to do?

I don't want to risk doing it if it's quite difficult, but if it's fairly easy I might go that route.

Measurements for both below if it matters:

You could try something like these Naked and Famous Red Core's. Nothing too crazy, but the red that comes with the fading is kind of unique and different.
