    That probably would fit exactly like that.


    I know 3sixteen sells those, but I've seen fit pictures that do not fit like that.

    Any suggestions for other types of jackets? I'd REALLY appreciate it.

    Anywhere that does chainstitching in Auckland, NZ?

    got a pair of KMWs on the way and would like to do them full justice with a chain stitch on the hem, but may have to resort to a regular lockstitch. No big deal, just would prefer a chainstitch if possible.

    Sure it has been covered a million times but I can't find where after 15 mins of searching on here. What is the accepted resource on here that shows you how to take all of the various measurements of yourself. How will this measurement correspond to various online or real stores' sizes on their clothes? Thanks.

    edit: I just randomly googled for this info but different sites had different methods and I don't know which one is "right".

    Is it advisable to remove darting from trousers? I have my eye on a pair, but it's got darting at the thighs, which just looks silly to me. I know you can remove darting from shirting, but I haven't seen it mentioned with regards to pants.

    The orange chainstitching that comes standard on KMWs is really cool. It's the reason I've hesitated to hem my jeans.

    Im not sure, but maybe Andy Whall could do the hemjob for you?

    BiG has a good guide on jean dimensions. There is also a good guide for shirting/jackets that was made for TOJ purposes. I do not, however, remember the link. Someone?

    I'm not sure why, but It seems like a bad idea. If you like the cut of the jeans with the darts, the cut will drastically change when you remove the darts...

    I need some workboots for this summer. I'll be in the warehouse of my family's lumberyard so they don't need to be waterproof or anything. comfort on concrete floors is gonna be the biggest selling feature. red wing has a store in my city but are there any recommendations before i head over there? any other brands that are available in canada?

    Considering comfort and working on smooth concrete as a factor, you'll probably want some sort of rubber sole; Vibram or something 'crepe'. Vibram is tried and true, however.

    Doc Martens and the wedge-sole Redwings are obvious choices. You really can't go wrong with Doc Martens, though, and they're pretty affordable.

    Epaulet has a horsehide, Vibram soled shoe as well...

    There is no discount, just Context cash (every $100 spent is $10 in Context cash).

    So I am contemplating a new look for my wardrobe:

    White dress shirt, black skinny tie, and grey fitted cardigan for top.
    And a pair of jeans for bottom.

    Quick questions:

    1. What shoes do you recommend for this outfit?
    2. Is this look acceptable?
    3. Where do you suggest I buy the dress shirt, skinny tie, and cardigan?
    4. What are acceptable prices for each of the 3 items I listed?

    I know I am asking a lot but I wanna get it right. Thanks much for helping ahead of time!

    I've been trying to get a pair of German Army Trainers, I've searched a few surplus sites with no luck. I would rather not go on eBay but I'm going to guess that is what I'm going to have to do. Anybody know where I can pick them up?

    For a good, rugged, entry level boot, both are good choices. I think the Katahdin may be a little more affordable, though. And in my humble opinion, I think the Katahdin's look a little better. And with LLBeans return/service policies, you will never have a doubt in your mind whether or not you will get your moneys worth.

    I'm looking for a nice spring jacket. I have an Arc'teryx rain jacket I like a lot already, so I just want something to layer over shirts to provide some extra warmth. I like Baracutas but I think they're too old-man-golfy. I really like the red ones but they're too James-Dean-y.

    Any ideas along those lines? Any particularly good non-Baracuta Harrington jackets?

    I'm also thinking about getting this jacket by Filson. Thoughts?
