    I'm working from home for the foreseeable future, and with the weather cooling down, I need "lazy stay at home dude" style that isn't a pair of Uni-Qlo shorts and a t-shirt

    Can I get any better than LL bean for this kind of thing?

    Wearing a tie and not buttoning your shirt -- keeps it casual. :laugh:

    Like the first look, though. That one looks like it came straight from the Ervell web site.

    That coat fits very slim - we're already processing exchanges for people who did not size up. Especially if you intend to wear more than a shirt underneath.

    It's both for returned items back in stock, and for new stock coming in of that product - whenever feasible within a reasonable timeframe, we are restocking on items that ran out. For example, we're getting more Inis Meain, Drakes and Lunettes Kollektion items that are sold out now. As soon as the item gets back in inventory in the size requested, you get an email telling you it's available. As jet said, it's important for us to see what is requested so that we can place orders accordingly. We're not a large operation like other big e-commerce sites that track your every click and therefore can extract all sorts of browsing/click data on what people want - so we rely on good old direct communication like that. :)

    Forgot how comfy that robe is. Adding it to my Christmas want list along with CdG card holder and the Toro Bravo cookbook. If giving is the best gift of all I want my family to be happy.

    I own both of these items [​IMG] (0)

    I miss the old style moccasin slippers they used to have years ago. They had a much thinner, softer sole that was nice for around the house. These ones feel like they're bordering on something you could wear even past the mailbox and out into the real world. Not so good.

    The problem could be one of three things:
    1) He is trying for a high-low concept that is just poorly executed.
    2) He was given a specific budget.
    3) He was given specific brand and item guidelines - this happens a lot, and you are stuck with "wtf am I going to do with the mess of stuff?"

    You should grab Minnetonka Moccasins. They have several kinds of thin soled moccasins. I have a pair of fringed boots very reminiscent of Visvim Shaman sneakers that are perfect for lounging around the house in.

    All of the shearling lined Minnetonka's I've ever seen had similarly thick rubber soles. The old LL Bean mocs had a very, very thin rubber sole that was nice. Ideally I would find some shearling-lined ones with a thin leather sole. Maybe I'll try to seek out something like that and get it for myself for Christmas :)

    Was there in VIP and that robe up close was jaw dropping.....looking at pics doesn't do it justice. The embroidered jewelry work was insane, literally the coldest piece of clothing I've ever seen in life.

    List of people I'd want to see gdl arm wrestle: Charly Knucks Kunk
    Years ago Nordstrom used to carry best best moccasin style slippers, but they've stopped carrying them. It wasn't until last winter that I discovered that Minnetonka Moccasins was making them for Nordstrom. Those are my personal fave.

    From the good armwrestlers I've seen, a lot of very specific strength and technique is needed. Although Charly and Knucks are decided more musclebound than gdl, he is considerably taller (unless Charly and Knucks are just huge, proportional human beings, like Shaq), and has much longer arms, which are a huge benefit. Kunk is pretty tall, and has really long arms, so I don't think that gdl is going to be able to take that one.

    Charly is pretty tall. Like 6' 0 or something. (5' 11"?)

    That's not that tall. I'm 5'11", and definitely do not consider myself tall - I'd say "medium". Greg is somewhere over 6'2". I guess it depends on your frame of reference. I am about to go to the gym, and among the group of guys with whom I work out (well, we work out independently, but chat occasionally), I am definitely among the shorter and smaller, at 5'11" and 175 lbs. Most of the guys weigh in at 200 lbs plus, and I would guess that while 5'11" is not short, it's probably the median height. There are a lot of guys who are 6'2 or 6'3", and I'd consider them tall. A couple of guys clear 6'5".
