    I think the trick is to just focus on the bold words and you too can be like Nuke.

    Yeah, I agree with that--I live in New Orleans / Lafayette, so I actually spend a decent amount of time walking around (well, in New Orleans). But the whole 30 degrees in the morning thing, and 60 in the afternoon, I am still not sure how to address that.

    And D kind of hit the nail on the head with the above quoted phrase.

    Really? Absolutely. Just let me know a bit in advance, and I'll be there.

    You should probably plan it for around Feb 6th or so.

    Ryden, that IM is amazeballs.

    Newc, love the Juncus. And the slim tapered are so much better on you. And doesnt some bunching/pulling by the crotch help lead to nice fades?

    Probably. I am pretty sure that nice should have been sick. From what I hear, good fades always seem to be referred to as "sick" fades. And thanks man, I appreciate it. I spent some more time with them last night, and the slim tapered are definitely my favorite. The straight are just a bit too baggy.

    I'll never understand the fascination with fade lines in denim. If it happens, it happens. Some of those dudes are nuts about it.

    I guess newcomer is like Robert Geller..He wants to surround himself with beautiful things....

    That juncus jacket is gorgeous. I live in south florida and still would love to wear that(although no one else down here would!). We're at a whopping 55 degrees right now. Should get colder....

    What is the conversion of schneider sizes to euro or U.S. I looked online with no luck..NMWA is sometimes lacking on the onsite measurements...In shirts I wear a medium and a size 48/38 jacket. Would I be a 4 or a 5. Thanks...

    Kinda depends on which piece you're looking at...some of them are sized trimmer than others. But I would guess you're a 4 in most stuff.

    Thank you...I was at least for now looking at the juncus..I'm 6'1" and I've got narrow(17.75"-18") shoulders too.

    Only somewhat on point, but there's a great Umberto Eco essay about the perceived value of "authenticity". At some level, I think there's an element of that. Plus, it's the same as any other hobby or interest into which we* decide to channel our OCD tendencies -- take something most other people find somewhat interesting and fetishize it to absurd extents. Could be jawnz, could be fantasy baseball, could be motorcycles, could be pizza-making.


    *Present company excluded, of course. :)
