Yeah, give them a shot, they look cool but I hear you on the price.  I basically stalked Jc**W factory for sale and stocked up when they were super cheap.

 

I grabbed some Darn Tough no shows and they are def. not no shows.

I've been using JC**W factory no shows and have been pondering a more expensive version, but these are pretty cheap and work well.

 

Yeah, I'd never wear shoes without socks.  i want a layer to help absorb moisture and reduce skin to leather friction that would be hard on the shoes and my feet.

 

But I could buy some shorter versions in a color other than white.  I agree these white socks have too much contrast with the shoes.

 

Figures that when someone posts a rare product review with photos that he gets teased for his socks!  That will teach everyone to never post photos.  

 

I know, it was tough love.  :)

All four of the recent workshirts funded quickly.  I hope that means more will be coming soon!

I don't recall seeing them in the recently completed items.

Try filtering the store to Shirts - three of them are showing as Past Campaigns for me - the Japan Khaki isn't showing for some reason, but I backed it so I know it was there!

Funny, that did it. Those didn't show in the unfiltered.

 

They're nice. I clicked Bring it Back.

re: sock talk, I like these ones from Uniqlo: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/product/men-pile-low-cut-socks-178360.html

They're low enough to be basically invisible under regular sneakers (you might be able to see them under slip-ons), but they offer more coverage and stay in place better relative to footies. Also, they look slightly less stupid / like ballet slippers when you take your shoes off.

They also make them in white and light grey, but they tend to sell out. I've seen them get restocked before, but sometimes Uniqlo restocks will show up under a separate product listing from the original.

Saw these at Uniqlo a few weeks ago, but actually prefer the thinner ones. Did not cop.

I think the burgundy color might pull me into the Gustin chino world.  Wondering what everyone else's experience has been with sizing on them.

 

I wear either a 31 straight or 32 slim in Gustin jeans, though I would probably opt for a 31 slim if not for the thigh being so small.  I'm not sure how much stretch is in the Gustin twill chinos, but the sizing looks like I could get away with a 31 slim, given the extra thigh room.  That being said, I'm not much for the ultra skinny chino look, and I'm having trouble translating the measurements into a good idea of how it would look.

 

Thoughts?

I wear 32 straight in denim and chinos. The chinos I have feel a bit more tapered though. I've had both of these hemmed since these were taken, but the chinos are more tapered.

I go up one size in chinos versus jeans. They don't stretch like denim in my experience at least.

The burgundy is great! I would go 32 slim in the chino. They do fit better in the thighs then the denim. But it's only 7.5 oz so will sew up on the smaller side or just feel a bit smaller.

I know this has been discussed several billion times in here, but how do the sneakers fit? I need white shoes, and I'm not spending 200 more dollars for a few little gold numbers.

 

I'm generally a 10.5E after break in, should I be going for the 10 or the 11? most of my sneakers are 10.5, so I can't really compare to those...

I've been thinking the same thing though I'd have to have them hemmed.  I like my chinos on the shorter side than denim, have no desire to roll them, and stacks on chinos would drive me crazy.

 

But you asked the same question I had.  Thanks for the pics guys..
