Um, make a spreadsheet?

If you're only talking about clothing I'd just divide by 2.5 in your head - the odd 0.04 isn't worth worrying about for clothing measurements when you take into account measuring accuracy and sample variation and dividing by 2.5 is a doddle compared to 2.54...

There's an extension for firefox that converts lengths and currency.

You'll know when you've browsed Rakuten/Y! enough when you know your measurements in cm better than inches.  Until then your training is incomplete.

From an invitation to an event at Pitti Uomo:

 


The Sartorialist Roy Roger’s
Two authentic lovers of denim who are also sharing the same particular fashion point of view, Scott Schuman and  Roy Roger’s, 
since 1952 the manufacturer of the first Italian blue jeans, has found common ground for their collaboration.
Today, at the helm of the Sevenbell company is Patrizia Biondi, Chairman, flanked by her sons, Niccolò Biondi, managing director  and Guido Biondi, creative director.

Scott Schuman  and Guido Biondi, creative director of Roy Roger’s, will be attending to the conference.
 

Get ready for a Styleforum collaboration with Dethrone clothing.

Isn't there a NYC shopping guide somewhere here?

Anyone that would like to list some chunky/heavyweight/thick knitting styles/techniques/patterns? (messy sentence but you get what I mean)

 

Planning to take advantage of luxire's preorders for introducing knits/sweaters to what they offer and would like to get something elongated, buttonless and belted.

(basically something like a mix between the Document shawl collar robe coat and the infamous Barena long-cardigan)

 

So, I need to know is what kind of knitting patterns/sorts I could ask for that would be heavyweight, look good for something like this and can be made out of cotton.

Went into Jack Straw last week. John, the proprietor is super awsome. He had on a pair of brown Alden cordovan Chukas that he'd had for 11 years. I remarked that they'll last forever if you just take care of them. He replied,"I don't even take care of mine and they're still holding up just fine." Reminded me a lot of John Malkovich.

Was surprised to learn that his current favorite brand is 8.15. I guess the designer used to work for Harris Tweed and as a result their best pieces, in John's opinion, are made from Harris Tweed. The refer to their jackets as 'second-skin' garments that require the wearer to be patients while the garment stretches and molds to the wearer over time.

He carried trousers from 8.15 that were made in a donegal tweed that would have been an insta-kop that the rise been a bit larger and the thigh a bit wider.
