Just wondering thats all.
SF is kinda weird. The majority of posters tend toward trad, prep and workwear styles but there is also a unit of more fashiony posters who embrace some streetwear elements a bit more. Common Projects definitely aren't the only SF approved sneaker, they're probably just the most universal. A lot of hypebeasty stuff is kinda looked down upon here for whatever reason. Some of it passes though. I guess part of it is that basically none of the regular WAYWT posters fully embrace that style so every time someone shows up with some of those elements in their fits it gets shot down pretty quickly, not because everyone disagrees but because a few people do who voice their opinion pretty prominently. I think some of those looks can work and be cool and then other stuff I think just looks retarded. Then again I haven't been exposed to a lot of it.

Can someone comment on the quality and sizing of Open Ceremony shoes? They seem to have some cool designs but the prices are set pretty high. Thanks.

^ Dunno about sizing, but from what I've read, price-quality ratio is pretty bad.

IMHO you would do better with BB quality than J. Crew. Almost every one of my "dress" shirts are slimmed down Brook Bros. They just seem to age well. In fact, wore an older white OCBD version last night with my new red Tim Hamilton raw jeans.

Is it possible to prevent or at least slow down the pilling process? I know you can only do so much if the fabric is cheap, but is there anything I could be doing to slow pilling down?

Edwin 505 29W works fine, but hard to find consistently on eBay/SF/etc. No idea where to go with T-shirts. Thanks!

------------------------------------
Data:

Body measurements:
Waist: 29"
Thigh: 21"

Personal collection:
Edwin 505 29W: 13" leg hole -- good fit
Lucky straight fit 29W: 11.5" leg hole -- too tight

AA S Tee -- fits OK, but want looser option
BR XS Tee -- sleeve/body length too short, want looser

Tees: on your next trek down to NYC, get thyself some Uniqlo Ts; they fit decent, albeit w/o tapering, and are dirt cheap (3 for $10 or something like that). Otherwise, try Hanes Perfect Ts, Target's Mossimo Athletic Fit, or buy Alternative Apparel tees from a wholesaler.

Jeans: again, in New York, Blue In Green Soho stocks a variety of Japanese jeans with retro-influenced fits that will fit your criteria. Also, check out Rag & Bone RB11, Crate Hamilton/Squires, or Kicking Mule 1950.

Minimize abrasion.

Looking to get a pair of military style boots. I wear mostly dark denim. Which colour is more versatile: black or brown?

Does anyone know the width of the Brooks Brothers watch straps? I assume it is 18mm, but it doesn't say for sure in the listing.

ie; http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...r=Navy-yellow#

Thanks!

Is it possible to wear a bandana in a way that doesn't look rediculous?
post #8141 of 12663
What to wear with black jeans? Top/shoes wise? I'm fishing for ideas.
post #8142 of 12663
everything. You shouldn't need ideas. Do you have clothes? Try shit out
post #8143 of 12663
Ive been trying shit out. Some stuff just dont look right.

Q: Could drycleaning (and/or pressing) an OCBD cause noticable shrinkage?
post #8145 of 12663
