They are still wearable, but I am concerned that just like the Uniqlo pant, these will become unwearable after the second wash. After the first wash, those were also wearable, but never stretched out and after the second wash became unwearable. Hope these stretch out. Honestly, I knew there will be some shrinkage, but wasn't expecting this much.
Put em on when wet and that'll stretch em out more

Any tailor recommendations in the Chicago area? I'm in the western suburbs, looking to get a pair of jeans tapered. Most of the tailors in my area have some sketchy reviews / are bridal seamstresses. I'm willing to drive a little to find somebody reliable.

Coming from classic menswear, how do you guys feel about colour combination 'rules' or breaking that mindset when trying something new? I wore a Charcoal bakers/chore jacket today with navy pants and thought it looked good, but couldn't get out of my head the typical bad combo rule of charcoal and navy combo.

charcoal and navy doesn't sound bad to me, but to your question, I don't think there should be any hard rules about color combinations. furthermore, if you think it looks good, wear it

Is France's Le Mont St Michel the oldest and most original/classic of all chore jackets? What's your opinion on the current production?

Does it have to be dark blue? I'd get a vintage one if you want classic, they look awesome.

Does anyone know what denim jacket is this? I like the wash and wondering if there's something similar available.

Charcoal and navy can look great together. Just like navy and black. I wear black pants with brown boots often, or vice versa. There's a lot of old school color rules that are super limiting and based mostly on formality of situations. given that most of those situations don't exist anymore have fun
