    The Uniqlo Thread

    Anyone know how often Uniqlo switches up their t-shirt runs? Loving the Supima cottons in fit and feel, but not stoked on many of the current colors (and they have fewer colors of v-necks to begin with).

    Outlier Tailored Performance Clothing

    Have they ever made Keirin cuts for other pants? I was more interested in the OGs and the Nycos than the Dungarees.

    Outlier Tailored Performance Clothing

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a pant from outlier (or a similar company) with roomier cut thighs? Looking at their measurements and their models, look like most everything is catered to slimmer folks. I have a bulky bottom block with sizeable thighs and glutes (but relatively small...

    Clarks Desert Boots

    I had avoided CDB because I wasn't feeling the look of suede and I didn't like the contrast between the sole and the upper, but those are really great looking. Looks like I'll be picking up a pair in beeswax. Edit: Actually, upon further review I think those are bushacres. Which are cheaper. Hrm.

    Clarks Desert Boots

    Are these beeswax Clarks? The laces are obviously after-market, but the stitching and design looks the same. However the sole looks much darker, don't know if it's been treated or just dirty. I haven't been impressed with most pictures of CDBs but I REALLY like the character and patina on these...

    **The Official Shoe Care Thread: Tutorials, Photos, etc.**

    I wasn't able to get a good shot of those, but they're definitely not just creases. I honestly don't care about those too much aesthetically, because they are pretty hard to spot unless you're looking for flaws, but I'm more concerned about how much worse they'll get and potentially making the...

    **The Official Shoe Care Thread: Tutorials, Photos, etc.**

    Thank you for this. I'm going to try to see if I can't get them refunded first, the seller made no mention of the cracks. Clearly I can't expect new shoes, but I feel I grossly overpaid for them in this condition ($47 shipped). I've opened an eBay buyer complaint, hopefully it gets worked out.

    **The Official Shoe Care Thread: Tutorials, Photos, etc.**

    (Copy-pasting this from the AE Appreciation thread, apologies for the spamming, just realized this probably fits better here.) I got a pair of vintage AE Townleys off ebay, however they're a bit more beat up than I expected. I understand leather cracks aren't repairable per se, but could a...

    Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc...

    I got a pair of vintage Townleys off ebay, however I feel they didn't come as described. I understand leather cracks aren't fixable, but could a good cobbler minimize these in any way? There's also a loose flap of lining in the heel counter, anything I can do about that? I'd love to...

    I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here.

    (Posted this in a separate thread, apologies somehow I missed this thread in my initial search). So I've always had a habit of fitting my jeans too big. They fit well off the rack, but then tend to sag too low on my hips after a few months. keeping this in mind, I went for about as tight as I...

    Will these rigid 514s stretch to accommodate my thunder thighs and ghetto booty?

    So I've always had a habit of fitting my jeans too big. They fit well off the rack, but then tend to sag too low on my hips after a few months. keeping this in mind, I went for about as tight as I could handle when I picked up these jeans. After purchasing however, I'm a little wary of these...

    Club Monaco: Adventures in decent clothing and horrible marketing

    Any idea how slim the classic fit is? I know CM has a reputation for being slimmer than the American average, so I'm not sure if I'll still need their slim fit. For reference, I have a 42 chest, a 33-ish waist, and pretty broad shoulders. Zara Tailored fit and Express Extra Slim fit are the best...

    Functional Cuffs, Sleeves too long, soliciting opinions

    Alright, so I stupidly had a suit made in Korea with functional cuffs. They came out a little long, but I got it 2 days before I was supposed to leave and didn't have time to make a return trip to the tailor, so I just took it. Other than that the suit came out fantastic, but the sleeves are...

    Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc...

    Any tips on getting these on sale? Particular retailers I should be checking out or sales they might have at their own stores? I need a pair of good dress shoes for interviews and formal functions and these seem to be the consensus pick for value-minded quality. I'm not sure pressed right now so...

    can the sleeves on a suit with functional buttons be shortened?

    The industry standards are that the centre of the button nearest the cuff should be either 1 or 1.25 inches up the sleeve. Sorry to revive the thread, but I had a question about the rule of rule of thumb Geezer mentions. I have a MTM suit I had made in Korea last year. The sleeves came out a...
