That's why it's entertaining - I watch it with the smug eyes of the SF illuminati and smirk disdainfully ...

haha cheers, images and emoticons :)

 

Well jeans aside, got those MJBale shirts today, nice for otr but even in superslim so much surplus material at the back. For what I paid for them will be well worth spending $20 having the darts and / or sideseems fixed but im going back to at least mtm next year, I stopped because I was loosing weight but thats levelled out now and am happy with health/figure. Now that ive got a few pieces that fit like a glove again when something doesn't quite fit or even a smidge off - like these shirts - its just  meh..

Now you tell me, are there ANY appropriate clothes for 43 degree weather in SPRING?

I spent all day in Sydney in Irish linen and very comfortable I was too.

Most shirting places seem to do poplin and twill as their mainstays but from what I've read they're heavier and denser than broadcloth (which isnt often sold) and therefore wouldnt be conducive to an australian climate. Is this the case or do they have some other advantages?

Broadcloth.

Cuffed or uncuffed? Hemmed or unhemmed?

 

Do you guys have any preference? 

 

oo did u try em on first? Jeans stretch a sh!tload ... my APC I bought 2inches down and already they are probablyh 1-2 inches too loose in the waist.

 

stiff and hard as all hell at the start... takes a good few wears.

 

Im keen to see pics because i was keen to try 3sixteen too

Cuffed seems to mesh with the MC casual aesthetic, I cuff my APC's and stack my flatheads. I'm not sure how long yours will take to soften, I think it depends on the denim weight.
Did you hot soak or cold? I got drenched at Harvest festival in my Flatheads on the weekend, and surprisingly they started to shrink again; I thought after two hot soaks that they would be done. Make sure to post evo pics in the future!

APC jeans are reputed to stretch like hell. From the reviews I've read, 3Sixteens don't change very much.

 

From http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=438&zenid=b66518a9c8adcf904862d57329fdc5b8:

The denim will also stretch in the waist up to 1.5" after approximately 30 wears.

 

I may wear jeans once a week on weekends so I'm not going to reach this point anytime soon

They're already sanforized so no soaking required.

Yes, APCs denim has more give than other brands

Enjoy the 3Sixteens, G!

I went through a few Raw denims including new standards and just couldn't get past the stiffness and I'm like Gerry who only really wear jeans on the weekends so they take ages to wear in. The stretching on most Raw denim also gave me the shits because you are really just guessing they are going to fit for a lot of money down the drain if they dont. In the end after much searching I stumbled upon a pair of G-star Raw, that feel nothing like any raw denim I've ever had (much softer) but have all the good characteristics of raw (nice dark un-touched denim) and most importantly fit like a charm and were only $180, pretty cheap in the jeans world.
It's only now it's summer I'm at the start again looking for something similar but in a lighter wash....
