    ^ The extremely thin lapels look weird on a tweed jacket

    Is this jacket really worth the price?

    If not, are there similar pieces that are better constructed for around the same price point?


    No, but the tweed SC I have for sale in B&S is worth the price. [​IMG]

    Seriously though, lapels that thin on something made out of tweed (a fairly thick and 'full' fabric) doesn't like right at all. If you want a tweed SC I'd suggest ebay/B&S/thrift stores to find a more classically styled one.

    I'd go the eBay/B&S route but I'm a bit leery of dropping money on something I can't try on first - I'll try my local secondhand store to see what he has.

    Thanks for the advice, though!

    Belts are supposed to buckle at the middle hole.

    Crap. That sucks for me then. Thanks.

    Where can I buy cosby sweaters? You know the kind I mean, with sort of dumb designs that are there for no particular reason. I have only ever owned one cosby sweater and I lost it recently, looking to get some more. EDIT: Found one, though its a bit more than I want to pay for a sweater. More like this, but less expensive.. Maybe a company that specializes in cosby sweaters? http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/s...9542/29542.jsp

    The nice thing about B&S is, if it doesn't fit you can usually re-post it to sell it again.

    Also, get a tailor to measure you and then ask for measurements from sellers for items, I find that helps (as long as the seller knows what they're doing).

    Really wasn't sure where to post this, but whatever. Can I get some opinions on the fit of this Junya Parka I just got? It's a little tight around the arms/biceps but I can live with it as long as it doesn't look too off...any comments are appreciated thanks [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Anyone know how the LL Bean Blucher mocs fit in comparisson to Quoddy's, or in comparison to Sperry's for that matter?

    I'm a 10 in Quoddy's and an 11 in Sperry, pretty much a 10.5 in everything else.

    Looking at these: http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignatur...tn&cat4=505905

    I have a pair of Levis STF I've been wearing for about a month or two, and now they're starting to smell a little bit. Normally I wouldn't care, but as a student who is around other people often, I don't like the idea of being a well-dressed but stinky guy.

    What would be the best way to go about washing these? Cold water in the tub with some soap (what kind?) and hang dry? Or what?
