I feel like I can probably find something in the same wash but of much better quality. I have heard pretty bad reports about the basic Levis (see above^^). I don't wear jeans all that often (hence why I am not interested in selvedge stuff) but I'd rather something reputable.
I have a 33 waist but large thighs. In terms of dress pants, I wear Epaulet Rudys in a size 33, measurements of which are here (13.25" thigh).

I am looking for something with a similar fit in the thigh and seat, but probably more tapered at the bottom (although I'll happily take them to a tailor).
I have checked out the appropriate fits of APC, N&F and Nudie but none seem to carry something in that exact wash.
Cheers for any suggestions.

^^ The Levis are tempting me since they are like, $40 (although would need some tapering). I need a denim expert to convince me otherwise!

Blue label - cheapest, attainable RL
Black Label - moderately expensive, aspirational label but within means
Purple Label - super expensive, for the guy who owns two ferraris and a boat $700 shirt type prices.

Nothing to do with men or ladies.

On your shirt tag the item code is one clue. See how it says SS CM ... The CM means custom, CL would be classic.

However, The biggest clue is the "custom fit" tag on the shirt

Its real if u bought it at the RL store....

Classics refers to the collection and not the fit.

Hey fellas.

Just wondering if you guys know the exact name of the style if the RL polo shirt I posted up on this page?

I like the style of it and wanted to search other colors they had

Cheers

I don't like either of them particularly. You said you were just starting your collection, no? To be honest I think you'd be better off looking at simple derbies before you get more exotic materials/loafers.

I haven't said I was starting my collection...But how did you know! :P I guess so; I guess I'll save up for some longwings then get a loafer:)

 

Thanks

Hi all,

 

I was wondering anyone could share a good place to get cufflinks. So far, I've listed Kent Wang as a good one (and they do have good links.) Any more that I should look into?

The new bloke davidatkins.com.au has some nice ones.

 

If your budget doesn't go that far, ebay is your best bet.

Well, what a bummer. I spent hours trying suit brands in DJs, with no real success. Zegna stood out, as it would, but stock was not so good (and non-sale price is not ideal). Generally, chests were too small, and waists were too big (probably more than tailors can correct). Trousers also presented problems, being designed for chicken legs, or those lacking in glutei maximi. Personal taste had no room to operate, as things were almost universally plain, in low super grade fabric, black or almost black, with standard notch lapels and hidden stitching. Most of the jackets were fused. frown.gif

 

I think I might just have to learn to not care what I'm wearing somehow.
