my advice it to choose fit over hype.  i have owned many "grail" jeans. and found my faves to be a surprise.
including 45RPM non selvedge.and  Nudie jeans.

Yeah, i wore Ironhearts all day. then changed into Sugarcane union stars for comfort. in fact, i reject anything resembling a "trend".   fit and personal style beats all.  do what works for you.   

And, Selvedge is a gimmick. it is no indicator of quality. cuffing your jeans is soooooo  2015. move on people.

Well, the best fitting jeans I ever had were Guess and they were that cream color almost white. But, I think the reason they fit so well was because I had a flat stomach and a 34 inch waist. It's harder now with a belly. Ever tried to put a rubber band around the lower third of a basketball?


EDIT: in my defense this was 1991!

Not much to be found here lately. I walked into and out of two stores today without buying anything and it's been that way for a few weeks now. Hoping it picks up after the new year. Anyone else feeling that?

This reminds me, anyone have any resolutions for the new year? I love this time of the year because I actually enjoy the process of setting goals and measuring myself to them, regardless of whether or not I "fail." It's the same reason I love daily to-do lists.

Since there aren't any thrift finds, here is yesterday's project for those that get some sort of satisfaction from these types of photos...

As the resident Mormon on this thread I am not a coffee drinker but found this and purchased after seeing some of the other machines picked up on this thread I think I did ok based on eBay's sold items.

Anyone heard of a company P. Nicholas, Washington DC? I just picked up a brass hoof pick belt, and I can't find any information at all about the company.

I found a jacket today I've been lusting after for years for the price of a cup of coffee.

It's raining hoodies still.

Left my self-filtering water bottle at the rental car place earlier, so I went back to get it. Figured I'd hit the store like 2 miles away.

 

Anyone need? Available as fuck.

Shirts for me.

 

Lots of ties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I pretty much never buy Brooks Brother's ties, but I found a whole collection, and this store didn't discriminate (all $1.99). 

 

 

My new Valentine's Day tie.

 

For the fangirls and frat bros 

 

Speaking of Brooks Brothers. E-thrifting Brooks Brothers shoes is one of my favorite hobbies.

 

I imagine no one else bid on these because the 5 foot red skate shoe laces in them. They're Alden and my size. Not really sure how to wear them with the vibram soles, but I'll figure it out.

 

 

 

And these, also Alden, also pretty sure they are cigar.
