That depends on where your starting point and ending point are. You want the pockets to be roughly the same distance from the midpoint seam as from the side seam. You can cheat that in at the midpoint seam, but go too far and it starts looking dumb. A guy like me, you've got some margin for error, and can take in roughly 2-3 inches. The slimmer you are, the less margin for error you have. If you're less than a 30 waist, I'd say two things: a) these aren't for you; and 2) find yourself a ham sandwich and a Vermonster.
If his profit is measured in orders of magnitude (as I suspect it is), why would he care? Quick sale high margin is every entrepreneur's dream.

 

Oh, opps, I misunderstood the question. I was told, to be on a safe side, no more than 2 to 3 inches.

Barrelntrigger: thanks for the heads up in the Wayfarers. I have been hankering for a pair for awhile. The tortoiseshell is in my basket as we speak. biggrin.gif

I thrifted these Ray-Bans tonight. Does anyone recognize the model? There are no markings on the arms. There's a B & L Ray - Ban etched into the back of the bridge piece and of course the logo on the lens.

Forgot the model name, but B&L is Bausch & Lomb, who owned Ray Ban before selling to Luxottica. I bet they're pretty heavy by the standards of today's sunglasses.

They are! I was telling my optometrist recently that that's my litmus test at the thrift store: picking up glasses and filtering by weight.

Oh! I happen to remember reading...For reference, epaulet says on their 34" waist tweed pants, they can be taken in 1.5" , no more

I miss Seattle thrifts!

You did well there. I think they were late 90s and now that John Lennon/round 1930s look is sought after fashionable

It is a lot of fun. I was kind of bummed when I finished.

So many Aldens, none in a 12D.

Anyway, the world didn't end this morning, so I hit a couple of thrifts. Suck it, Mayans!

All this stuff is available.

Finally found some shoes! Bally's tassel loafers in 10 M:


Tod's split-toe loafers, same size I think (size is unmarked):


Incotex ... shorts? Who knew? 34. Chinolino!


Brooks Makers and Rooster tie.


Some shirts. Brooks made-in-USA OCBDs in 15.5/4.


An E Zegna tagged small and a pink Pink, tagged 16/41cm.


Zegna pants - very lightweight khaki-colored chinos with jeans-style pockets. 34.


E Zegna Milmil jacket, Euro 54.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Shit, this isn't an orphan, is it?

And finally, what I think is a kind of beat LVC Sunset shirt - no measurements inside, but I'm a 42 and this is big on my shoulders and down past my waist. It's got some ink on the back and some of the inner placket is partly unsewn. Probably should have passed, but I couldn't leave it there.

These remind me of the genuine, vintage aviators I inherited from my great uncle when I was 16. I was such a fool. They were absolutely awesome, and 100% genuine to the WWII era. Green glass and all. Totally not UV protect, but still cool as shit. Stolen straight out of my locker by one of my my fellow lifeguards, and I just let it go. Easy come, easy go. Piece of American history just released into the wilderness.

Most of you have dealt with me over the last year or so, but most of you probably don't know that I am a good ole fashioned country boy. I grew up in a rural area, worked on a farm for many years, and live in a pretty much rural area now....although technically inside our small town limits.

 

Anyway just a little something to pass along. This is the way we will be celebrating the holiday. Sorry if you don't like country music, but you will like this song, I promise. Our Christmas theme song for this year.

 

Happy Holidays

Just finished putting together a pink mustang power wheels. Given what happened about thirty miles from me about a week ago....it was the best apent time I've had all week and can't wait to see the look on her face come Christmas. Enjoy the holidays all and always remember the most important things in life.
