    For anyone interested in Clarks, some fit advice: the Desert Treks seem to run about true to size, but the Boots are a little large. That was my experience. I wear an 11.5 Converse chucks or 12 Born oxford. Heeding some advice that the Treks run large, I went with size 11 at first, which while wearable also pinched a bit and didn't leave much toe-wiggle room. I replaced them (overnight! thru Zappos) with an 11.5 and they are absolutely perfect. My Boots I ordered in size 11 and they also are perfect.

    (Also what Zappos calls gray distressed actually seems to be gray suede. In any event, it's very nice.)

    jet: what's the fabric like? how does it fit?

    It's like a pinpoint fabric, kinda looks like smooth chambray. Fit's slim and is cut with a short straight hem, no chest pockets. Got it cheap so why not. Also comes in a thicker white cotton same fabric as the safari shirt they have.

    Got my SD 103's in the mail from Vari today. Thanks to Opeth from mynudies for the heads up on these guys. Saved a ton of cash avoiding the proxy, and got arcs by avoiding BIG. These ****ers are tight though, I literally had to tuck my balls into them.[​IMG] At least able to get all the buttons up now. I have no idea how people size down in these.....

    I bought a pair of suede gray Steven Alan sneakers from the B & S forum, and my white painted John Varvatos hi tops came in today. I'm contemplating a jacket from YMC.

    Nope, just the canvas black ones.

    Thinking of picking up a pair of chucks next [​IMG]

    Just got these in the mail from Vari Rakuten store about an hour ago. Beautiful, but don't fit my fat ass. These are a 34 and I need a 36. For some reason, I can't post in the FS thread, but I'm looking to sell these. My ebay ID is the same as this one if anyone wants to check out my legitness. Just looking for $250 shipped, has the pocket arcs, of course no soak/wash. Couldn't be more brand new, and I can take more pics if anyone would like. If it's a major no no to post this here, that's cool, just delete the post, or preferably move it to the FS area since I can't get it in there.[​IMG]

    I fell in love with the SD-003 when I was in Japan. Great cut, beautiful color. I was just a little scared that the inseam would be too short. I guess I need to get over my stacking phase and embrace the world of 34" inseams.

    These are 36 inseam. I'm 6 feet and they are more than long enough for as much soaking as desired.

    36 inseam pre soak isn't really that long. That's 33-34 inches after soak, which should be enough, I just prefer more.

    Just received a Nice Collective "Genesis" sportcoat in washed black from Villains in SF (loving the fit of nearly all NiCo right now - slim without being constrictive, a washed brown belt by Jean Shop (major quality, and an interesting design on the buckle as well), and a faux henley ribbed Margiela crewneck from the Yoox sample sale - $64.

    Recently made first order from Astor & Black, should be ready for final alterations in a few weeks -- a charcoal three-piece, a gray three-piece with pink pin stripe, 9 dress shirts, 2 linen sport shirts, a pink paisley tie, a blue floral paisley tie, and a navy tie with magenta dots. My first MTM suits of any sort, so I'm stoked, even at my (low) price point.

    Jos A. Bank just had a big markdown on their seersucker suits, and I picked up a 3-button traditional navy-and-white.

    I replaced my old black Dickies 874 work pants.

    Think that's about it.

    This is awesome. Where exactly did you purchase though (I can't seem to find the store on the website)
