    Gustin is good. My only experience with them has been a gray sweatshirt that is wonderful and very well made. I’m looking at possibly getting a pair of Gustins though. Also looking at the 21oz pair of Unbrandeds.

    Sorry to hear that, mine should be getting here Thursday...

    Love those, would love to get a pair

    Jealous of the white tie event. The only thing close I’ve been to have been black tie optional events. I do try to wear my black tie rig with my navy velvet DJ during the holidays as much as possible.

    Those look great. My black tie shoes are current Florsheims- still patent bals with a leather sole, but made who knows where.

    If I’m indoors, I also opt for velvet PA slippers :cheers:

    I really wish Netflix would do another season of that...

    No experience with those, but I do have a LL Bean barn coat I got for my birthday several years ago (actually, it’s the last birthday present I got from my grandmama before she passed, so I’ll never get rid of it). It’s a great jacket- pretty lightweight (so not ideal for cold weather) but lots of room for layering and very durable.

    Since he’s on the Rockets now, I’ll let you know how I feel come January

    Looking back at the pic, it is pretty decent. I’ll compare them with my Levi’s tomorrow but they seem to be pretty similar (the Levi’s might have a slightly taller rise).

    Levi 501 STF, or Wrangler 13MWZ for super high rise.

    I actually love my Wranglers- they use sturdy, American made denim, have a high rise and slim leg, and can be found for $15-$20. I use mine as work pants (I like darker washes for buttondowns/sport coats), but they work great as beaters (and for rodeos, for that matter)

    Thanks! As for fit, would you order your normal SC size?

    thanks! will check it out. LLB usually does a pretty good job with their stuff

    Mine is the flannel lined version (the lightest one)- if you need heavier, they do have a couple options. The gusseted shoulders are awesome though, as are all the pockets

    I was at a retail store yesterday. It was depressing with half the store filled with garbage. Then, they had these small signs explaining what “Speed welt” and “Bench welt” are. Unbelievable! The only thing that stood out was Stirling in brown Dublin. They were nice with sturdy feel to them. No way I will pay $495, but might pull the trigger for about 50% off (too close to my original McTavish). Who knows, this boot might be the last decent thing coming out of AE.

    I was finally able to stop by a store and check out some of the new stuff. The Bond Street is garbage. I would suggest to look elsewhere.

    Yep! I did my regular SC size and was happy with the fit. If you have questions about fit, they’re also very responsive on their forum at SF and good in my experience with emails.

    D and E in select models. Their common last leo is similar to Barrie or TB. I forget which since we're both SOL with them currently.

    Is it wrong of me to want my Grailsons to look like they’ve been worn hard?

    Edit to my earlier comments- soaking the Goodfellows denim right now so they’ll be able to dry overnight, interested to see how this turns out.
