Sorry we missed you guys. We really didn't run you down all that much . . .

The fish was OK. Not amazing, but totally fine. It's the first time I've had food other than the burger and fries there. But I viewed the beer as my primary sustenance, and it was more distinctive-tasting than the fish.

Posted in LVC thread...

Heads up for Westside LA people.

Rufcut Denim on Sawtelle just north of Olympic.

Expert repairs, chain stitch hems $ 25.00, tapering, custom jeans, etc.

Small shop but pretty impressive.

I can't say. They looked great but that doesn't mean anything. He uses mostly Cone denim, top notch hardware and models his jeans on 1947 Levis. He also has a good stock of authentic vintage Levis denim. Not LVC.

His Yelp page is loaded w. praise.

Well denim doctors is the gold standard for repairs so i don't see any reason to go anywhere else when they're proven.

Guys, any suggestions on where to take my mom out to for mother's day?

 

on a side note, I just moved to LA a month ago.

 

edit: damn I think you have to make reservations weeks in advance, especially on a day like mother's day.. Should've known

I go to schaefer's garment hotel for denim repairs.

Soda Pops is a nice little sandwich place on la cienega. Down the street from opening ceremony.

Next time get a reservation for Perch LA on a weekend afternoon. Your Mom will like it.

Hit up Mess Hall in Los Feliz this weekend after hearing all the praise from friends and the internet. It was very MEH. Maybe it was a fluke for the one time I went? I had the Mess burger and my friends had the baby back ribs and the waitress-recommended short rib. We all came to the same conclusion. I mean, it wasn't bad by any means, but I expected it to be much better, especially after hearing all the stellar reviews. Has anyone been?

On the other hand, I finally got the burger that I remember Jet recommending way back when from Westside Tavern. That was a great burger.

I'm going to be in LA in a couple of weeks for a few days. We have reservations at Ink on Saturday night. Will probably shop at South Willard on Friday. I could use some recommendations for dining (breakfast/lunch/brunch/dinner), shopping other than the South Willard area and places to shop for watches (new or vintage). Thanks.

Ink is bad ass! Make sure you get the egg yolk gnocchi.

Hit up shopthefinest.com warehouse for mens clothing. Call Ian to set up an appointment beforehand.

West Time for new watches, in addition to the several brand boutiques, mostky in Beverly hills. The only "vintage" shop that I like is Phillippe's in Beverly Hills.

For stores like South Willard, I'd say Mohawk General Store, Confederacy, Barney's in BH.

Feldmar is also worth visiting for new watches, and the prices are pretty negotiable.
post #1889 of 2288
Feldmar is a good bet for nice discounts, but truth be told, after shitty L.A. Tax, the discount is nearly cut in half.

If you're looking for a great AD, shoot me a PM and I can send you some referals.

fuck i don't know of any good clothing stores anymore lol

i would go to BLD (breakfast lunch dinner) one of my favorite casual spots, sit outside and watch the traffic go by. Also aoc is a great winebar a few doors down from south willy or down the other way is son of a gun which is great as well where you will definitely get the LA experience with the communal table and all. If you want to see hot chicks go to fred segal cafe on a saturday afternoon. Also Urth on melrose is another great cafe with some good people watching as well (and excellent pumpkin pie/pastries and tea).
