    Hey, anyone know where I could find a Quick Release Belt like the following??

    [​IMG]

    This particular one is a Ludlow quick-release. And it was from http://www.dubarrycanada.ca
    however they don't seem to carry it on their website anymore.

    I know that Engineered Garments used to have one, but I can't find it anywhere.

    Ideas?

    Where can i find a warm, fitted/slim flannel shirt for under 100 dollars? I've heard cheap monday recommended, but I don't know where I can find it online. Does ll bean/filson/carhartt have anything that won't be boxy/roomy? Same question goes for Henleys. Thanks

    I asked this a while ago, and I didn't get an answer, so I'm giving it another shot. I have a jacket that fits pretty well, but the sleeves are huge and I'd like to take them to a tailor to slim them up. Is this a simple and straightforward process and how much does this kind of thing run for?

    You could try taking it to a tailor who I'm sure would be more than happy to answer this question. Unlike a shirt, a jacket is going to have any number of layers of fabric that a tailor will have to go through; I also wonder if or how much work would need to be done to the arm holes.

    I placed an online order with Jantzen back on 9/26.

    Is there no confirmation number or email verifying the order went through?
    Does Jantzen not respond to emails?
    Is there a better or safer way to order with them?

    I realize their order form is not secure and sloppy but I took a gamble to see how their shirts will turn out.

    You should take a look at Men's Clothing to see how the Jantzen experience works, hehe.

    Haha yeah I've read upon the "Jantzen experience" in MC but I wanted verification this lack of response and no order confirmation is normal.

    My favorite thread is VMan's critique my Jantzen shirt post.

    is a charcoal grey suit suitable to wear to a wake, i haven't been to a wake/funeral since i was really young and am curious to know what the clothing etiquette should be

    according to gq online pecking order is black suit followed by grey then dark navy blue with solid white shirt and black tie. sounds reasonable right?

    ^ Yes, charcoal is a good alternative to black at funerals. Don't say aloud here that you follow GQ's advice again thou, less you wanna get reamed.

    Any idea how warm they are? They say lightweight so I'm a bit skeptical. I'm kind of leaning towards LL Bean, but am afraid they will be super boxy [​IMG]

    These shoes with jeans? Ive seen many like chucks, but I was just gonna try and find something besides that. And also for those who said size down 1 on nudies.. Do you guys not like to use the pockets on jeans or does it eventually stretch out so the pockets are useful? Because I can barely put my hands in mine. http://www.zappos.com/n/multi_view.c...f=multi-button

    How long have you have worn your jeans for? Which model is it? If you're wearing sized down Grim Tims for five minutes then yeah, you might have trouble with the pocket. If you're talking about a pair of AJ's that haven't stretched out after a month of wear then I'd be considered (but I doubt it).
