Any ideas on what I can get locally? It is just too much of a crap-shoot, I think, to get jeans online- though I have gotten lucky a few times.
Try APC Rescues (I can't recall if they have them at GPTG these days) sized down 1 more than your NS were sized down. I have NS (-2) and Rescues (-3) and they are honestly likely my favorite two pair. I have KMW, FlatHead, 5EP, Crate, etc. but overall the APCs still get worn more.
Speaking of which, I might have to stop by GPTG tomorrow.
Oh, and for what it is worth, as a relatively new guy to the city, I just recently chose a "hair cutting place" (for lack of a more appropriate term). I elected to give The Men's Room a try over on the west end. I liked the idea of a place that was for guys only. Based on one visit it is hard to rate them, but for the sake of this discussion I'd give my first experience a 6/10 rating. I'll likely stick it out for a bit longer and then consider shopping around.
