For the stuff I make, it wouldn't make sense as I'd have to charge like $500 for a belt and most of that would go towards buying the buckles, but if you search for sterling silver western buckles on ebay you'll see some pretty amazing stuff.
I mean wow
Basically you are dead on. I don't even think Tandy produces them so much as purchases batches of them from China the same as all the other hardware suppliers (this is not a knock against the quality, I'm surprised at the detail you can get out of mass produced buckles like these), and then you...
That Silver Ostrich buckle is gorgeous. The hardest part is sourcing the buckles. I've found some gorgeous ones before that then somebody wants me to duplicate and I can't find the buckle anymore.
I've been liking these ones with smaller buckles where the strap tapers at the ends.
Are you saying the 105/107 are slimmer than the new yorkers? The new yorkers taper quite a bit past the knee, but with a nice loose top block. Maybe you could get the painter denim and taper them but I dunno about all that.
+1 with everybody else though, my charcoal new yorkers are in heavy...
I mean I'm already a pretty big orslow-head, I just really like all their products and the construction details. For the new yorkers specifically:
- roomy top block
- button & drawstring waist
- breezy fabric
- good pocket size
I've been wearing my pair so much since I got them.
I have a Margaret Howell apron that I love, its not for wearing out but its just fun having a designer apron when I'm in the kitchen. I've seen the eg aprons before but like you said they are hard to track down.
I agree with you on every point, however I have ended up painting or doing gardening or other stuff in EG and it holds up pretty damn well. Just a nice added benefit. I like bringing my CPO shirt camping because that back pocket is big enough for a trail map and the shoulder pocket is the...
@GeorgeC same as NOMERCY said, they are probably my most worn pants. I've had a really deep navy pair for 2 years and they've faded super nicely. I had mine hemmed and I cuff them sometimes just depending on how long I want the hem to hit. Buy your TTS.
Here's a recent photo of my pair
I just picked up a pair of these from Arpenteur. They are very beefy and well made. Solid acetate, handmade in France, with big metal hinges. I love this shape and had been looking at vintage frames in hopes of finding something so I'm glad these came out. They also come with a neck pouch, which...
So I'd like to pick up an upcycled chambray shirt since they're pretty easily available and on sale right now. Is the advice to size down this season? I usually buy size L in EG to get a 23" p2p measurement but these last couple seasons the shirts have been comically long too. Should I try a...
