For you to imply my original comment was in any way homophobic is irresponsible and misguided.  You're doing a major disservice to the group you were recklessly trying to protect.  Don't appreciate the humor?  That's fine, I'll tone it down and try to be more considerate.  Clearly it's not funny to you in the same way it was to me.  Next time you want to foolishly claim someone is being homophobic from one sentence that you misinterpreted, count to 10, read it again, and ensure you properly comprehend what's going on.  Spouting off when someone says something you don't like and accusing them of something like that is a lot more serious than you might realize, and I hope this little explanation will help you in the future to make more mature and responsible decisions.

So you're saying you hate all minorities? Harsh man, harsh.

People need to stop trying to dissect every little statement so they can find something by which to be offended. I didn't find it homophobic at all,but then again I'm not really sensitive to it anyways.

So now you're turning your bigotry toward former athletes? You've crossed the line

I have an idea, let's talk about clothes.

 

So I couldn't resist backing the periwinkle chambray last night.  Had to return a nice pink chambray in classic medium a few weeks ago due to chest size being too small for my manly heterosexual 42" chest (Not because of the pink!  The color was great and didn't cause me to question my masculinity at all).  So I'm going to try a classic large.  I hope that works because if it doesn't I will be SOL on Gustin shirts.  Looks like a slim large also wouldn't work because it has the same chest dimension as the classic medium.

Is it just me or does the current blackwatch pattern look a lot smaller than the previous version?

current:



previous (arguably not a true blackwatch, I guess?):



It'd be great if they'd make one with a bigger pattern and a beefier flannel.

I like the smaller version, it just changes the overall aspect of it. Probably appeals to more people

I actually prefer the new version. That's just me though.

I'm looking forward to the periwinkle as well. I wear a 42R in suits and a Gustin L Classic or Slim XL, so you're probably on to something. You could also measure a well-fitting shirt per their fit guide if you want to make sure you've sized correctly for this one. If you don't have a fabric measuring tape, you can get them pretty cheap at pretty much any hobby or fabric store.

Just got some brown duck canvas chinos. I wore them for a few hours the other day, then washed and dried on low heat last night. I noticed some creases in them today that don't look so hot. I've never owned duck canvas anything before these, so maybe this is to be expected

This one runs across the thighs/lap:



This runs vertically up the right leg and appears to have been from the way it was folded in the packaging:



Not sure if it's a result of drying, but seeing as how duck canvas is supposed to be kind of a working man's fabric, I doubt that's the case. Not sure if Gustin will do anything if it is a problem since I already washed them though. Maybe I'm being overly picky?

Thanks, yes it sounds like our fits are similar.  I did measure quite a few shirts and knew based on the fit guide that a 42 chest (ie 42R suit jacket) might be tight in a classic medium.  But some of the other dimensions on the classic large or slim x-large may be less than perfect so I wanted to try the classic medium and see if I could make the chest work.  It was maybe 1" too small.  I'll find out about the classic large when the periwinkle arrives in a few months!

Happens with canvas and other fabrics.  Nothing you can do, embrace the streaks.  My heavy caramel twills have done the same thing.  Must be something to do with the dye process.  More refined twills (smoother hand) don't do this I have found.

Heh, the Heather Gray flannel says it uses "Heavy Navy Flannel, 7oz"
