    Coupla minor points:

    (1) I'm 5'9" so I almost always have to get denim hemmed and I've never had a denim specialist do it. The "keep the original hem" is something most alterations places will do now b/c so many jeans in the last few years were distressed and it looks weird to have distressed jeans with a nice clean hem. However, it adds a little bulk to the bottom of your leg and can make cuffing funky, so take that as you will. Real chainstitching pre-wash allegedly gives you "better" railroad tracks (distinctive patterned fading on the hem) but how much that bothers you obviously depends.

    (2) I'm neither tall nor thin and I think I look OK in Ervell. Maybe not ideal, but OK.

    shoreman you're talking about chain stitching the entire outseam right, not just the hem?

    You can just cut out the bulk on the inside. (No way back then anymore, of course.)

    Mellows the du that started me on Ervell.
    He doesn't really post fits here anymore.
    He does on Instagram however.

    MoK: Great fit!

    Alright... having a discussion with a buddy of mine. He says that the two jackets below (North Face puffy jacket and Raf Simons Bomber) are "very similar". I say that they are... not similar at all other than being black puffy jackets. Thoughts?

    to the random observer, 2 black puffy jackets will often look similar

    My thoughts add nylon to the north face replacing the neck area and both jackets are kinda round and will look alike.

    I probably can't explain any differently without some visual aids; will throw something up later if I can.

    I mean, they do look alike if you don't care about clothes. Just like people think Picasso or Basquiat looks like their kid did it if they don't care about art.
