post #97291 of 118015

Any slackliners in here? I just ordered a Gibbon 25 meter slackline for $50 from theclymb.com.

 

I don't feel too bad about "jumping on the trend" since the first time I got on a slackline was in 1997. Perhaps I can get my mojo back. If anyone wants an invite to theclymb, send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you one (they sell mostly outdoorsy stuff).

i mostly use cotton.  and my bought Pocket squares from Burberry and Vivienne Westwood are all 9x9.

if you are going "puff",  you will of course need more material.   i like semi neat.

Shhhh, let's not announce it over the interwebz! She doesn't have to know...:paranoia:

 

Well, actually Weird Guys are a bit on the slim side and has the tapered legs. Great for stacking! Skinny Guys are the other hand, are like the super skinny jeans but not yet "painted on ", chicken legs jeans. I think @ridethecliche should fit 31 Skinny Guy which means it's gonna be hard to find Japanese denim in the Japanese market for him because Japanese people are not really into skinny jeans.

post #97294 of 118015

Yeah, oops. Got that backwards.

 

30 Weird guy might actually work for me. 30 Skinny guy does not! I could get into a 29 weird guy but the legs and rise were too tight. The 30 skinny guy, I couldn't even close the buttons on after squeezing into them. I'd only get a 30 waist if I expected some stretch, otherwise I usually get a 15.5 waist! So yeah, a regular fit 30 (15 waist that stretches a bit) is more than fine!

So yeah... Uh let me know :p

If anything, the 32L might be too short for AFTER they're washed if they're not pre-shrunk at all. Are these sanfordized? What's the true inseam? I'll just PM you...

That sounds depressing, staring at that neglected denim. Send them to me and I'll make sure they never bother you again.

It's totally worth the money and basically theft proof. I've got three of their pieces and I take them with me every time I leave the cou try.

when traveling internationally (and in the USA) I always keep a separate government ID in my briefcase and in my money clip. Same with cash. at any given time I have 3-5 cnotes in a place in my carry bag (unless my wife was broke). 

 

I also make color copies of my passport and visa's and but them in different bags. 

 

I've had the case where my DL broke in half, and TSA wouldn't take it, so I had my global entry card in my separate bag that I used to get on the plane. I had AMEX cancel my card in the middle of a trip due to a breach. Only problem was I was traveling at the time. I used the cash for a dinner with a customer that night. 

 

My daughter was coming home for Thanksgiving and forgot her ID. I had taken her to England before and I had stuck a copy of her passport in her bag. She had never taken it out and TSA asked her 3 questions and let her through. 

 

Once you prepare for losing your stuff or being robbed, you just don't worry about it anymore.

Anyone have some tips to share to help speed up scanning the trouser racks? I think my approach to jackets, shirts, ties, etc is good but I always feel that I'm either missing items in the pants aisle or spending way to much time looking at each pair.

Its a vicious cycle....really love the thrifts that hang the pants waist up for easy scanning. You might look for the tell tell suspender buttons if you are trying to find or eliminate suit orphans, but you will learn to recognize the Haggars and Dockers pretty quickly. If you are lloking for a nice fabric you can eliminate many pants through the feel test.

RAINING Charles tyrwhitt here, couple of flip cuff shirts in 17.5,/35,

Also found some Charles tyrwhitt suits, 3/2roll and 2 button Navy suits in 46.

Most likely the same donor, 46R guys get at me for proxy, don't want to invest so much into it.

I'm slow too. Obviously the waist band, but I look for pick stitching, tunnel belt loops, fabrics, side adjusters and stuff like that. I can usually do that on a quick scan.
