    wondering why blue in green takes the sweet mother of time to just actually physically attempt to ship out your package.

    As New England gets colder my search for a fall jacket becomes more pressing. I'm looking for something pretty simple, classic, kinda warm, kinda weatherproof to hold me down between now and winter coat weather. On most of these counts I like Barbour jackets, but frankly they're not slim enough for me (or if slim enough, too short in the arms.)

    So, I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for something in a similar vein but a little more fitted (I'm 6'0" 40 chest ~178lbs FWIW.) Wax cotton is actually not a necessity, just a thought that makes sense in New England fall. Thanks guys.

    I did actually try... Couldn't find anything useful. Some comparisons of sizing in regards to other jeans, but not a true measurement of the mic rigid... I think I better play safe and go tts...
    Would Acne Mic rigids be worth $80 new? Or can they be found cheaper? I haven't managed to find cheaper yet...


    I have some mic rigids i paid $80 for, new. I'd say it's worth it. The fades happen but aren't crazy, kind of gray/white. I'd say buy a tag size that is 2 under your favorite pair of jeans' real waist. I actually went too far--got a tagged 27 b/c it was available that is now somewhere just larger than a true 29", and I would have rather had a pair that ended up measuring to around a true 30. sizing like I did will be real snug, if you're into it, but it will be hell on the zipper. Mine broke around 6 months (i got my tailor to put a new one in.)

    Thanks for the input, that really helped! So you are saying that you got them to stretch 2 sizes?? I heard the Acne raws were hard to get stretched to even one size up!

    Also does anyone loop their belts through the leather pactch in their jeans instead of over it?

    I really need some help finding some slim fitting outerwear. I'm an XS and haven't ever really found anything too small for me. I really love this geller bomber, but I'm not sure about it. Any other suggestions? Price isn't an issue now. http://www.ssense.com/men/product/ro...l_bomber/28071 Help me out!

    Could anyone please give me a thigh measurement for Levis 511's? A size 31-33 would be preferable. I haven't been able to find any thigh measurements using Google, unfortunately.

    Oi Polloi has some but they're a bit all over the place. Best bet might be to email levi's direct.

    You might want to consider going Japanese since their brands are prone to size small. That or go made-to-measure. ToJ might work for you, too.

    what is a reasonable price to expect to pay secondhand for an uncomplicated MMM line 10/14 sweater, nothing fancy or grail status? $2-300?

    $125 would be a stretch. The cotton, cotton-wool and wool-cashmeres are easy to find at $1xx brand new

    Living in Toronto, Canada I am in the same situation as you. Wanting something good for the winter. At first I was thinking a leather jacket then I realized there is no point of going cheap on a leather jacket...you want the real thing. I cant drop $1500 for a belstaff as I'm just a student. So I decided I will just buy a $1500 leather jacket in the future hopefully.

    I've decided I'll go with a peacoat now. By the time I get older and get the leather I'll then have a peacoat, trench and hopefully barbour as well. I think thats all you need. So ya maybe you should consider a peacoat?

    Need to bolster my wardrobe with some nice wool trousers for work. Looking for a slim fit, similar to epaulet offerings, but not epaulet. thanks
