There is probably a coupon floating around for some extra discount. (pic below not mine)

Added a new FR3 to the rotation:

Years Nike rotation so far including the LG3, missing in the pic is the Pegasus 28 (soon to be replaced by Pegasus 29) because it was trashed after a tough hike.

Picked up the first pair at local Nike outlet store. Was very nice on feet in person. Sized up to 10.5 and was comfy but after my gym workout with them on I realized my right pinky toe was hurting like hell when I pressed on the side. Other than that it should stretch out. I actually like the multi-color light reflector strip on the back. I shouldn't be so adverse to color redface.gif

Saw the FR3 in person too and it was quite nice. Was going to pick it up too but thought I wait on it since I only needed to replace my beat up Free 1's.

Nike Lunar Montreal

Headed back to the Seattle after all. Some of the few upsides are an excuse to stock up on F/W stuff and the weather to wear them year round

this is my first batch of happy socks, but the initial feel quality seems pretty legit.  as far as durability goes, i go through my cashmere socks way faster than the cheaper stuff like those uniqlo blended socks, and that has less to do with quality and more with durability.  those nylon, polyester materials, etc. really do extend the life of socks.   but treating yourself to nice socks knowing that you'll throw them away soon make for a luxurious treat.  the happy socks, however, are less about luxury and more about fun.

Sounds like it might fit pretty long too

Most DBSS knits are purposefully oversized, often making them more challenging to wear. The couple I have are in size 1 yet they're still really roomy and long.

Here's the only fit pics I could find of that DBSS knit. Reminds me somewhat of that old fuuma fit involving the oversized rabbit sweatshirt + rick hi tops that many thought looked too feminine. Same basic idea anyway-- oversized top, skinny denim, and huge hi tops.

4 x Banana Republic v-neck tees

new-pima-cotton-v-neck-tee-black.jpg

V-neck is not as deep, which for all intent and purposes I would rather go with a loose crew or u-neck. From some of the Uniqlo v-neck WAYWT photos it is probably on par.

I just got to go back to the basics and wear what works. Bought one last year from B&S for a mere $10. This is the true stuff. Will see if Uniqlo v-necks are a challenge come September.

And at ~ $12 it just beats Everlane in terms of fit and quality. Thick 100% supima cotton, soft (Made in Jordan) and washes well. My old one currently has lasted and retained its shape pretty much 99%. Again it is on the thick side, which I personally love.

I'll note that since everyone on StyleForum is a diehard gym enthusiast or rail thin and have double-digit drops (I have only about 5-6" or so), this tee may not be for you.

Size TTS, I wear a small. Some say it is vanity sizing.

ANYWAYS, I bought them for the gym or what usually happens is I change out of my day clothes and into a tee then precede to go to the gym with what I'm lounging in.

Thanks for tracking down pics, I was worried it was ~4-6" longer than that. Should have no problem at all working it into my wardrobe.

Doesn't really seem to be a problem on SF
