Trying to be cool even though it's around 95F here today.

Land's End Madras shirt, Leatherman belt, Land's End trousers, bamboo socks (from Marshall's) and Nordstrom's saddle shoes......

What is everyone's thoughts on Jack and jones? I know 90% of their stuff is Euro trash but lately they have some pretty decent simple plain t shirts and sweaters that fit well. I'm talking about the ones with little to no logos of course

Not all bad. Disposable fashion warez - if it works for you, well and good. Don't expect to be wearing it in two years though - it will probably have fallen apart.

Sunday Brunch

post #19269 of 22496

Thanks always to everyone who takes the time and trouble to post pictures of themselves.

Yesterday evening I went to a former coworker's art show at a non air conditioned gallery.  By then the temperature was down to around 90F.  He and his co-artist had also painted the front of the gallery.  Here I am standing with a lion that they painted on the front of the gallery.  Had I stood by the other side of their artwork on the front of the gallery, I probably couldn't post the picture here in a "G" rated group.

Brooks Brothers linen tattersall BD shirt, the same Leatherman belt (on a large enough screen you should be able to see my initials embroidered around the belt) and Land's End trousers (with the pockets full of stuff that usually goes in my jacket pockets when it's not so hot) as in my other picture from yesterday, and Allen-Edmonds tan suede Strandmoks......


......and, if anyone wants to see the art, it's the Trunk Gallery at 12818 Venice Blvd (just east of Beethoven Street) in Los Angeles.

@Darkside very nice. I need to find me some V-neck sweaters in various toned down colors for F/W but I've yet to find the one good company.

Vintage Japanese cotton scarf - the fabric is indigo-dyed and made up of a number of pieces of material sewn together. It dates back to the early 1900s.

@Darkside your last fit is a lot like I usually dress... I like it a lot, perfect for the week end (best time to put the phone down :P ). 

 

@chocsosa I like the whole idea behind your last fit but I think that the fact that we can see the elastic bands on the ankles is what throws me off. If the pants were tucked in the boots, it would have look killer. 

 

@Roycru nice fit, very relaxed. That wall is insane, I like it!!

Today is a national holiday in my country so I threw in my new Levi's 501 CT and went for a walk:

I think I am going to the seamstress to have the waist taken a bit... I had to go up one size and they feel a little "baggy" on the waist. Have any of you ever had any experiences with altering jeans? Do they look ok afterwards? I have never had any of mine "touched" in the waist.

Have you washed them and dried them in a machine? That may shrink them up a bit.

 

What I've found to work for jeans that are a half size to big, or stretched from wearing, is to put them in a pot of boiling water for 20 minutes (easier on them then a washing machine) then the dryer on high heat. You may lose some length though as well, so be careful.
