If 34X34 Levis 501 STF raw fit me perfect, what size APC NS should I get? Are the 501s more like the rescues or new standards?

Should I keep t-shirts in a drawer or hang them? The search engine doesn't really make it easy to find an answer to this question, though I'm sure it's been addressed here before. I've heard hanging them can make the shirt lose its shape over time. Is this true? I've got the space to store them in drawers, but I find they seem less accessible that way. Out of sight, out of mind sort of thing.

Don't get a parka.

Thrift stores are a great place to look for overcoats as nice ones are heavily made and many don't get much wear anyway, so they can last forever. I have two overcoats I wear a lot I got from thrift stores, one of which is one of my more complimented items. That one is a wool/cashmere double breasted camel colored coat from Zanetti, which I had a tailor shorten and make slimmer. The end result looked really good. You should try to find something like that that you like, and if it's not perfect, get some reasonable alterations.

Trust us, you'll look much more professional than in a parka, and you might not even have to spend much.

Hey. I bought a pair of common project low in grey perf. I am a true size 9. I wear a size 9 in chucks, adidas, Pf flyers, dress shoes etc. I went with a 41 based on the sizing chart on revolve clothing. Length wise, the shoes are perfect. There are like 2 cms of space in the toe box. Overall, width wise the shoes are okay too. My question, however, has to do with the toe box. for me, the biggest problem is that the profile is so low that the shoes press down on my toes when I walk. Does the toe box ever stretch out?

Any recommendations on cords that are a bit bigger in the hem than Levi 514 or Gap cords? Both fit okay for me, but when paired with size US13 Docs it looks a bit silly.

Wheres a good place to find acceptable mens necklaces/chains and bracelets that are not labeled like all these shitty armani, gucci, and dolce pieces of crap.

samboh- Are you talking post-soak or pre-soak? Regardless 501's are pretty anti-fit in my opinion and have a fairly high rise compared to the NS... Your size in STF's doesn't really mean a whole lot since you could be wearing the 34x34's loose or tight depending on how u sized them proportional to your body type... if you are looking of a looser straight cut then the Rescues are for you... if you are looking for a slimmer slightly tapered cut then the NS's are the jeans you are looking for... good luck!

What's the cheapest way I can buy some APC NC's? I've heard that being a member of SF or superfuture you can get a discount on some websites?

Probably a large. I don't own any BoO, but I find APC runs true to size.

Both pairs I bought came with 2 shoes bags each, no extra laces, no shoe horn, and no care information.
